“With the last of the sun flickering orange light across her face, she hitched up her long skirt and started the steep climb to the stone circle.”
Valerie Biel, Circle of Nine: Beltany

“I was suddenly conscious of my nudity under my robe as the fabric swished against my bare skin. It felt strangely liberating and slightly naughty.”
