Six Sentence Sunday 9/23/12

23 Sep

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thank you for taking the time to visit.  This week I’d like to share my 10th snippet from my contemporary romance Two-Timing the Boss which is available in print and ebook from The Wild Rose Press.

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

QUICK SET UP: I jumped ahead several paragraphs from last week when Keller and Farah bumped into each other outside the wig shop and she wasn’t in disguise. Her ex-boyfriend happened on the scene and she had a little bit of comparison time before her ex whisked her away to catch up. Here we are deep in Keller’s thoughts not long after he watched her walk away with the other man, unable to forget or understand his overpowering attraction.

His stomach tightened as he closed his eyes to picture her dark hair in startling contrast to her creamy, flawless skin. The swell of his own body betrayed him as he recalled how her purple sweater caressed the curve of her breasts.

Damn, they’d only spoken for minutes, but her image lay locked in his mind, in vivid detail. Familiar, like they’d met before. But if that were the case, he didn’t believe he would’ve forgotten her.

Hell, he was damn positive he would remember her.

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.
