Speed Dating for Books

Can you say it in six sentences?  Can six sentences taken from a novel meaningly convey its essence?  It’s an interesting proposition and one I’ve decided to give a try for Six Sentence Sunday:

Six sentences from my current release, LUST ON THE ROCKS.

“My boss is sexier than any woman has a right to be.”

Careless to the schoolgirl grin lengthening across her face, Sam was captivated within the spotlight of his attention—which was crazy!—she was a woman used to entertaining the hot-crackle-pop of new lovers, the tentative taste of first beginnings…

“Not only stunning, but her mind runs circles around most others.  A trait I find incredibly appealing in a woman,” Vic said, his voice quiet, his gaze heating through the evening breeze.

Doubt pushed past pleasure.  Should they do this?


What do you think?  Is six sentences enough?  If you’re like me, you definitely need more…

So head on over to read an excerpt, or download the entire book today!  This one’s a quick read, but satisfying.

    You have a beautiful garden. I too like to garden, or at least I try to garden.
