Six Sentence Sunday 8/19/12

19 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 5th snippet from my contemporary romance Two-Timing the Boss that officially releases August 24th with The Wild Rose Press.  That’s right…a mere 5 days from today.

I’ll let you in on a not so secret secret…lol, but the print version was released last week and this Friday the ebook will be out. I’m so excited 🙂

I’ve included the blurb at the end of today’s post 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: We’re still in Keller’s POV and in the midst of him interviewing Farah. She’s playing it aloof and cool, though sweat dots her brow. This snippet starts out after Keller lets Farah know he spoke to her previous boss who raved about her. He basically wants to know why she didn’t return to her former position since her prior boss said he’d take her back in a heartbeat.

She smiled, but her eyes remained cool. “I appreciate his kindness, but sometimes you can’t go back.”

“Basically he called me a fool if I didn’t hire you.”

Farah arched one fine brow. “He’d be correct.”

Keller laughed outright, he’d always been a closet sci-fi fan and her emotionless expression along with one lifted eyebrow resembled a famous Vulcan. He liked her spunk-logic.

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.

    I’m dying to know if and when he figures out she’s not who she says she is! Terrific six!

    The waiting is killer, isn’t it? The closer your release date gets, the more antsy you get. Or maybe that’s just me. lol

    • ChristineWarner
