Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday! Thank you for taking the time to visit. This week I’d like to take up from where I left off last week and share my 2nd snippet from my contemporary romance Two-Timing the Boss that is releasing August 24th with The Wild Rose Press.
I’ve included the blurb afterward to give you a better idea of what the story is about 🙂
I love reading comments, so please let me know what you think of my six.
Thankful the receptionist led the way; Farah had time to double-check her appearance, for the tenth time in the same amount of minutes. She straightened shoulder length blonde tresses with flat palms, making sure her wig hadn’t shifted. She didn’t need the extra stress of losing her hair during an interview. Just the thought made her smile, until she caught a glimpse of herself in a mirrored wall panel.
Sure, the wig her twin sister Karah had selected changed her hair from auburn to blonde, opaque contacts covered her warm brown eyes, and smoky shadow enhanced the now brilliant blue color outlined by eye-popping black liner, but her lips sealed the deal. They burst with a wet red cherry gloss, becoming the focal point on her pale face.
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.
BLURB for Two-Timing the Boss:
Farah Smith is on a mission: secure the funds for her twin sister’s surgery. She’ll do whatever it takes to succeed. Even if that means putting her values aside to work for a man she finds morally bankrupt. But when the real Farah meets her new boss, she wonders if she’ll be able to resist his sexy advances long enough to help her sister.
From the blonde wig, to the stilettos strapped around her ankles, Farah’s a clone of Keller Donovan’s harem of past assistants. She can’t believe she’s let herself be talked into the disguise, let alone working for the man planning to demolish the hospital her sister so desperately needs, but the salary he offers is the only way she’ll be able to afford her sister’s surgery. The moment Farah meets Keller she realizes her most daunting task isn’t typing, spreadsheets or organizing travel arrangements, but fighting the growing attraction toward a man whose ruthlessness is legendary in the boardroom as well as the bedroom.
Determined not to end up in a disastrous marriage like his divorced parents, Keller believes all relationships should have a shelf life of sixth months or less. But when he meets Farah, all bets are off. He not only wants her to continue as his personal assistant, but his own private bed warmer. Unfortunately, his offer of an affair doesn’t sit well with her fairytale dreams or the strangled hold gripping his heart.
