This week’s theme is Sexy Today. We all have our idea of sexy and it means so much more than it did fifty years ago. Sexy can be any age and many are saying that being in your 50s is the new 40s because people live longer, love longer and enjoy a quality of life longer like no other time before. This week is all about being sexy today no matter what your age.

Your Seven Sexy Paragraphs:
He broached the subject that had been preying on his mind since he'd met her. It loomed ever larger as the days passed and their wedding date drew no nearer. “Surprised some young man isn't trying his best to make you happy.” He stroked her hair. “I'm not sure what you see in an old man like me.”
Paz stared into the fire so long that Matt checked her face to see if she was asleep. “I'm not young, Matt. There was a young man, once. A long time ago.” Her low voice sounded sad. He'd heard her happy and aroused and coldly furious and irritated, but never sad.
“Dead?” he asked, kissing her neck.
She nodded. “Gunned down six months after we married. He was a shop clerk, in the wrong place at the wrong time during a hold-up. Out around Carson City, there aren't many ways for a young widow woman to live that don't entail selling yourself to one old rich man or a dozen less rich ones. I didn't like my choices, so I quit being a woman.”
“And you don't mind this old man looking out for you?”
She looked up at him. “Not a bit. If you don't mind a cantankerous old woman with guns sharing your bed.”
“Not a lick.” He tipped her mouth in closer and brushed his lips over it. “In fact, I love her.” He swallowed and added, “I asked you once, in too much haste, if you'd marry me. You said no. I'm asking again. Paz, I want you to be Jane Court before Christmas comes.”
