Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday! Thank you for taking the time to visit. This week I’d like to share my 6th snippet from my contemporary romance Two-Timing the Boss which released in both ebook and print on Friday, August 24th with The Wild Rose Press. WHOOT WHOOT…cue the ballons and streamers and the sexy shirtless men with glistening biceps and rippling abs pouring champagne 🙂
Whew…*fanning myself* Back to reality and controlling the need for a run on sentence! lol
I love reading comments, so please let me know what you think of my six.
QUICK SET UP: We’re still in Keller’s POV and he’s just offered Farah the position of personal assistant and she’s accepted. Farah—in total good employee mode—offers to start the next day. We start out with Keller’s response.
“Take the remainder of the week and get yourself situated then come in fresh Monday morning, seven-thirty.”
When her tongue flicked out to wet her lips, his insides shifted. The sunlight coming through the bank of windows touched the moistness her tongue left behind. He envisioned his thumb tracing the curve of her upper lip before he lowered his head to take a sample. She’d taste like sugar, of that he felt certain. At this point he just wasn’t sure if it’d be imitation or the real thing.
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.
