Six Sentence Sunday 10/2/2011

02 Oct

Hi and welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thanks for taking the time to visit me.  I do appreciate comments, so please let me know what you think of my six.  Each week I will post another six from a work in progress or a finished manuscript.  All you have to do is read and enjoy.  That’s it!

Now I have to admit this is my 3rd week participating.  The 1st week I didn’t really know what I was doing and just picked six from anywhere in the book.  Since then I’ve decided to post in story order.  So, sorry for any confusion, as the first week should’ve actually been something I posted in the 4th or 5th week 🙂

This is from a scene in my book Some Like it in Handcuffs which is being released by The Wild Rose Press both in print and ebook format.  Release date pending   This is from the end of the 2nd chapter after Judson (a detective and the hot hero…YUM), meets Sunny (the sassy heroine who is a PI). Her family, all involved in some aspect of law enforcement, have tricked her into accepting Judson’s help on a cold case to keep her safe, or so they think *wink*.  After they meet (the six from last week), Judson is alone and realizes he’s in trouble.

He’d be the first to fail a lie detector test if he didn’t admit he found her extremely attractive, but he’d also be first in line at a firing squad if he didn’t keep his distance. Her brothers were protective. Another detective, especially one that wasn’t planning to stick around, wouldn’t top their list as a potential date for their little sister.

Date. He shook his head to clear that word from his mind.

The case should be his one and only focus.

I hope you enjoyed these six.  For more great previews from other authors please click on SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY.  Or join in the fun next week with six of your own.

    LOL firing squad! I like his uncertainty – tell her, don’t tell her. As long as he’s working with her, the case won’t be the only thing on his mind. 🙂

    Love over-protective brothers! The heroine in my new series has six! Loved ’em.

      Six….that’s a lot of over protectiveness! My heroine has 4 and each will have their own story…so I’m looking forward to revealing them. Glad you dropped in Jennifer!

    Great six! It’s my third week, too. I like the “first to fail a lie-detector test” line.

    “Especially one that wasn’t going to stick around” — should be “one who.” People are always “who.” Sorry, I’m an editor for my day job. 🙂

      Hey Ruthie, thanks for commenting and the correction. I have to admit I missed that in the editing of the story…but my editing skills are much more honed now and I won’t be making that mistake in future works. 🙂

    I love how he is torn between the case and Sunny. Her family adds to the complication. Can’t wait to see where this goes! Great six!

    Hi Christine *waves* ~ What I liked about your sentences is the push and pull of emotion Judsen goes through.

    Another item is I can see a man shaking his head to get his thoughts back on track.

    And a gold star for Ruthie for catching the little error. (she’d be a great crit partner, huh? Grin!)

    LOL No matter how many times we critique, there’s usually one more find. Argh!

      Thanks Sheri….glad you liked his turmoil…and you are so right, now matter how many times we look over our work, seems something is always missed. I just hope it doesn’t affect the reader’s enjoyment of the story too much.

        Not all readers are editors! LOL And it sure didn’t affect MY enjoyment. I found it totally bitchen.

    I can tell he’s in trouble already! He’ll be praying for a firing squad if he hurts her and the brothers find out! Wonderful six!

    First in line to be doing the firing, or receiving it? Really good except for the moment of confusion.

    Love the cover by the way. When you google the title and hit images it is the very first picture…very cool. The other pictures with that phrase are not rated PG so I suggest this as a intellectual exercise only.

    • ChristineWarner

      October 20, 2011 at 2:55 am

      Thanks Susan! I like the cover too and I’m glad to learn that my cover image pops up 1st when googled…how cool is that? lol
