Six Sentence Sunday 7/29/12

29 Jul

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.

Happy Reading!


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.

    Love the blurb. I can’t help but find it sad that her motivation is funding for surgery.

      I guess I take that part with me from work. I run into people every day without health care benes and it is sad…but oh so true.

    Sounds like the boss likes the hooker look, LOL. (I have a serious image of Julia Roberts in her drag at the beginning of Pretty Woman). Loved your six. Can’t wait to read more.

    Oh my, this is all fascinating, LOVE the blurb – so much going on in the plot, I HAVE to read this when it’s released. Excellent excerpt, I could really see her, felt the angst about the wig staying put.

    • ChristineWarner

      July 29, 2012 at 4:02 pm glad you enjoyed it Veronica….hope you enjoy it when it’s released…less than a month now! WOOT WOOT!

    Hmmm…I’m wondering if I missed something. Is she trying to fit the image he likes in women, or is she afraid he’ll recognize her? I’ll be back week next week to find out. Sounds like another fun romance.

    • ChristineWarner

      July 29, 2012 at 4:05 pm

      Hey Carmen, she’s trying to fit the image of his previous assistants in hopes it’ll land her the job…later on is when she’s nervous he’ll recognize her…but I can’t give any spoilers! lol Thanks for coming by!

    Guts and desperation are a potent combination. Mr. Donovan’s in for a challenge. 😉

      You got that right Monica! Glad you came by 🙂

    Great set up Christine! It’s clear she’s gonna be conflicted. The fun is in following the adventure.

    Great descriptions, so very visual. Farah and Karah – – I love it!

    I laughed at her worrying about losing her hair — that would keep a girl unsettled during an interview! Fun six.

    • ChristineWarner

      July 30, 2012 at 4:35 pm

      No kidding…I don’t think I could handle it! Thanks for coming by Donna!

    Oh this sounds goooooooood!!!!!! 🙂 I can’t wait to read more, and of course now I’ll have to add it to my must buy list! congrats friend!

    • ChristineWarner

      July 30, 2012 at 4:35 pm

      Thanks Amy…good to know you liked the snippet! Always a relief to hear 🙂

    Beautiful piece of description, both of her nervousness and of her appearance. But opaque contact lenses? Surely at least the centers must be clear, or she couldn’t see out!

    • ChristineWarner

      July 31, 2012 at 3:35 pm

      Thanks SueAnn…in the research that I did I was informed that if she had brown eyes and she wanted to change the color to blue or hazel or pretty much anything else she’d have to go with opaque.

    What a great story idea, and I enjoyed the snippet! Great choice for this week’s six sentences!
