Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday! Thank you for taking the time to visit. This week I’d like to share my 11th snippet from my contemporary romance Two-Timing the Boss which is available in print and ebook from The Wild Rose Press. I can’t believe it’s been 11 weeks of teasers from this story…time is flying by 🙂
QUICK SET UP: Again I’ve jumped ahead.
Farah just had a fight with Keller regarding an uncomplimentary article in a magazine about his plans on demolishing the hospital—but she doesn’t know all the facts and Keller isn’t sharing. When she emerges from his office still spitting fire, she finds Robin—Keller’s long time receptionist—who is more like a mother figure than an employee. Robin starts off this snippet. She wants to set a few twisted facts straight regarding Keller’s business dealings and what the press has to say about all the people who’ve become ‘jobless’ at his hands.
“Those employees didn’t bother to mention that they were offered several choices, a great severance package, or an option to transfer to another position within Donovan Enterprises. Never mind the fact Keller would help them return to college to start fresh if they wanted.” Each word Robin uttered pierced through Farah with bullet-like accuracy and reduced her to the size of a peanut.
How much more of a wake-up call did she need? What a heel she’d been. For some reason the press had it out for Keller Donovan, and she had fed right into it, like so many others.
Had Farah misjudged Keller from the start? Is an apology in order?
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.

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.
