Six Sentence Sunday 9/2/2012

02 Sep

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thank you for taking the time to visit.  This week I’d like to share my 7th snippet from my contemporary romance Two-Timing the Boss which released in both ebook and print on Friday, August 24th with The Wild Rose Press.  WHOOT WHOOT!!

I love reading comments, so please let me know what you think of my six.

QUICK SET UP: We’re now in Farah’s pov and she was just shown around the office on her first day by Robin the receptionist. Farah—forgetting for a moment all the deception she’d used to get her new job—was just thinking how lucky she felt to be back in the work force and admiring her new office—with a window to boot…when all of a sudden…

The doors to her boss’s office burst open. A gust of air blew across her face, lifting a tendril of hair from her shoulder to tickle her nose. The boom of Mr. Donovan’s voice chased two harried men in suits from his office. Orders to get the job done, do it right, and make it happen now nipped at their heels.

Farah swallowed the smile she’d worn all morning. Mr. Bossy yelled for Robin, who stepped into his office and discreetly closed the door, and with a quick glance around the deserted room, Farah cleared her throat as a slow burn evaporated all moisture from her tongue.

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.
