Six Sentence Sunday 5/6/12

06 May

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

I was off for a few weeks, but I’m back with a vengeance!  Okay, maybe not a vengeance, but a more serious six 🙂  This week my six is again from my debut release with The Wild Rose Press SOME LIKE IT IN HANDCUFFS.  This is a fun, light-hearted romantic suspense with some humor thrown in.

Quick set up: After Judson steps in when Sunny is dealing with an overly friendly customer at the bar, she storms off in need of a quiet place to gather her thoughts.  Confused over her own ability to handle situations on her own and how she liked him coming to her rescue, she’s about ready to face facts and feelings.

Sunny backed up, stumbling in her heels. She ran her hand through her hair, spun around, and stormed toward the sanctuary of the ladies room.

The one stall bathroom door slammed shut behind her and she pressed the lock into place. The faded green and white foiled wallpaper covered every wall in the small space and winked at her as the solitary light over the sink reflected against it. She balanced her hands on either side of the porcelain sink and stared at her reflection in the mirror.

He infuriated her. She shouldn’t even care what he thought of her, but she did.

I hope you enjoyed these six.  For more great snippets please go to SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY.  Or join in the fun next week with six of your own.

Happy Reading!
