Six Sentence Sunday 10/7/12

07 Oct

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thank you for taking the time to visit.  This week marks the 12th snippet I’m sharing from my contemporary romance Two-Timing the Boss which is available in print and ebook from The Wild Rose Press.

~~Proud moment alert~~ I have to sneak in this wonderful review I got just last night from Romancing the Book.This made my weekend 🙂

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

QUICK SET UP: Again I’ve jumped ahead. Farah had the weekend to dwell on their fight and today we’re in Keller’s POV as Farah enters his office bearing an apologetic gift.

Farah made her way across the room with a rhythmic clack of heels on hardwood, holding a cup emblazoned with the name of his favorite coffee shop and a small white bag from the bakery next door to the office building.

She pressed her bright red lips together, rubbing them back and forth as she neared before delivering him a hesitant smile. She placed both items in her hands above the file he’d been studying.

“I come in peace,” she said, her eyes sparkling.

Something inside him melted. Even though he wouldn’t label her as the type he went for, it grew harder each day to deny something about her attracted him.

Aww, isn’t she nice? I wonder if Keller is going to accept her apology or deliver one of his own. What do you think?

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!


Two Timing the Boss @ The Wild Rose Press

EBOOK on Barnes & Noble

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.
