Six Sentence Sunday 11-21-2010

From Cole in Her Stocking, my romantic suspense WIP. This is Lara's first glimpse of Cole, an FBI agent working undercover at an airport dive:

Lara headed toward the bar, and nearly collided with the bartender who glided  from the opposite direction like a great white smelling fresh blood in the water.

Powerful shoulders the breadth of a two-by-four, a Flight Risk T-shirt pulled taut over toned abs and pecs, muscled legs that fed a pair of biker boots. And black jeans too snug to slip a wallet--or a condom--into the back pocket.

Lara jerked her focus upward. Eyes the color of ice chips flicked over her with the predatory awareness of a shark.

Holy heart-stopping Hannah, she thought, we're gonna need a bigger boat.

Thanks for your kind comments about the new-look blog. Personally, I despise it. I guess it will grow on me. It will have to! The old blog is gone-gone-gone, baby, gone!
