Six Sentence Sunday 11/27/2011

28 Nov

Hi!  Please feel free to browse my blog and if you like what you see, sign up for email updates on the left or scroll down to follow through the networked blogs icon!  (Thanks to my lovely daughter for adding that)

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thanks for taking the time to visit.  I love reading comments, so please let me know what you think of my snippet.  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!

Since starting Six Sentence Sunday I’ve been posting from Some Like it in Handcuffs which is being released on March 23, 2012 by The Wild Rose Press…but as of last week I’ve put that story away until it’s closer to release date and will now post from my current wip, Some Like it on the Run, which features Derek Kennedy, brother to Sunny, the heroine from Some Like it in Handcuffs.

Quick setup:  Last week you met Derek and saw his reaction to seeing Kelly, a woman from his past.  This scene is in Kelly’s pov.

Double damn.

Kelly choked mid bubble-blow when Derek limped down from the driver’s seat of his big black truck and made his way toward her.  She hadn’t seen him in months, since she’d played maid of honor to his best man at Sunny and Judson’s wedding.  But her heart still flipped and his presence affected her to the point where her mind stumbled to recall her own name.  So much for getting over him.

When she’d called Sunny in a panic, and had been reassured someone would be sent to help her, she hadn’t expected her friend to send numero uno hunky brother.

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

Happy Reading!

One more plug…I have a forum on my blog every Wednesday titled What to Read Wednesday where I feature an author and one of their books.  If you have a book that you’d like to promote, please send me an email to set up a date to appear for an interview @  I’m accepting bookings for February and beyond 🙂  Thanks!

    Oooh, awesome six, girl! I’m dying already to read this story. You have another winner on your hands. 🙂

    And I’m totally intrigued by the fact that he ‘limped’ out of the truck – what happened to the poor guy?
