Six Sentence Sunday 9/9/12

09 Sep

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thank you for taking the time to visit.  This week I’d like to share my 8th snippet from my contemporary romance Two-Timing the Boss which is available in print and ebook 🙂

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

QUICK SET UP: We’re jumping ahead a few chapters. Farah is settling into her new job and even managing to wear her disguise with no more wardrobe malfunctions—for now! Today is her day off, and she’s just finished shopping at the wig store for an accessory and she’s totally out of disguise when all of a sudden…

With a quick glance in each direction of the sidewalk, she waited for an opening then joined the masses. Not slowing her stride she looked down to slide her wallet inside her purse and within seconds came up against something hard. A solid body. Not muscles on muscles, but firm enough that whoever it belonged to either spent time in the gym or worked a physical job.

An automatic apology forming, she looked up only to gulp down her squeal of surprise. A pair of familiar Caribbean blue eyes smiled at her.

Who do you think those eyes belong to?

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.
