Six Sentence Sunday 8/12/12

12 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 4th snippet from my contemporary romance Two-Timing the Boss that officially releases August 24th with The Wild Rose Press.

FUN ALERT! I just found out Two-Timing the Boss was released 2 weeks early in print format (the ebook will still be released on August 24th)…here are the links…I’m so excited!

The Wild Rose Press


Now back to the regularly scheduled program…

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 setup:  Farah made her way into Keller Donovan’s office for her interview and had an unlucky mishap in her tower high heels. Before she kissed the floor, Keller caught her and saved her from embarrassment. She’s a little shaken and parts of her disguise aren’t quite secure as they were minutes ago. This snippet takes off from there in Keller’s POV…

“I can’t believe you still want to interview me,” she smiled, a slow parting of her slim, bow shaped lips revealed even white teeth.

He stood, captivated by the curve of her mouth until her smile wavered then disappeared. After giving himself a mental shake, he led her to one of the leather chairs. Instead of taking the seat beside her, or making his way around his desk, he perched on the ornate carved edge before her. Keller rubbed his chin between thumb and forefinger and regarded the latest candidate HR had sent up, a replica of his last three assistants. Either the only qualified graduates applying were tall blue-eyed blondes dressed in wool business suits, or the university on the other side of town was in mass production of administrative clones.

“Tell me why you’d like to work at Donovan Enterprises?”

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.

    Interesting insight. It seems that his reputation may be more a product of the rumor mill than his own thinking. Either that or he’s completely clueless about how his own actions affect other people. Sounds like an interesting fella.

    • ChristineWarner

      August 12, 2012 at 3:29 pm

      Thanks Monica….I think he’s an interesting guy all right. Sometimes people are so easily misjudged. Glad you came by!
