There’s nothing like going straight for the throat with teeth bared to get a sex scene rolling. This isn’t quite the perky little bed-hop I’d envisioned — but then Molly is a lost woman devoured by darkness and weighed down by a doom and a duty that promise massive grief in the future. Sex for her pretty much has to be a trip down the dark side of the path — and exercise in desperation and yearning.
What kicked the scene loose? I don’t know, but it’s rolling now. And so are the characters.
