Six Sentence Sunday 8/5/12

05 Aug

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 3rd snippet from my contemporary romance Two-Timing the Boss that releases 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.

Quick set up: Farah Smith is on her way to meet with Keller Donovan for the position of his assistant. Let’s just say she didn’t get the chance to ‘be herself’ on the interview. (and Karah is her twin sister)

Guilt at what she attempted ate at her insides.  Despite being desperate, this went against everything she believed in. Just because her savings account had dropped below three digits, didn’t mean she should resort to disguises and deception to get a job.

But her inner voice niggled until her stomach flipped. She’d allowed herself to be talked into this for more than her bank balance, or lack thereof. Karah needed her help.

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.
