Six Sentence Sunday 10/14/12

14 Oct

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thank you for taking the time to visit.  This week marks my LUCKY 13th snippet that I’m sharing 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: YAY, this week I didn’t jump ahead. I’m taking this up right where we left off last week. Scroll down if you need a reminder or just trust me when I tell you that Farah and Keller had an argument and she came to the office bearing gifts of donuts and coffee.  So, here we are, still in Keller’s POV.

“Great minds think alike.” He scooted his chair back to reach into the top drawer of his desk and pulled out a small gold box. The name of a well-known candy company printed in bold black letters on the lid.

Her face lit up like the Vegas strip at midnight. “You know my weakness.”

“I’ll remember that because I have a feeling this won’t be the last time we’ll have to make peace.”

So sweet…they both thought enough of the other to make an apology, with a gift no less!  Don’t you just love those moments?

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.

    Sweets do tend to smooth things over. They should be Lindt chocolate. Everything would be right in the world if there was more Lindt choc given out. Great six this week.
