Six Sentence Sunday 2/27/2011 Anniversary Edition

It's time. No more waiting. HEALING HEARTS releases from Carina Press tomorrow. To say I'm excited would be understating it!


And to make it even better, it's the one-year anniversary of Six Sentence Sunday, my favorite Sunday addiction!

To celebrate, the Six Sentence Sunday participants are donating fabulous prizes, from gift cards to books, including a digital e-copy of HEALING HEARTS from me. Just comment on one of the participants' blogs (like, you know, here!) to be eligible to win.


 My Six Sentence Sunday snippet this week is from...wait for it...

Despite all he’d been through on the Peninsula, despite his present inelegant position and the pain that still tightened his brow and skewed his smile, despite her certainty that he had gotten very unused to the habit of smiling at all—the wry humor she remembered from that long-ago garden party somehow managed to seep out.


Deep within she felt a steady drip, drip, drip and knew this virile man was melting the ice around her heart. Could he hear the thunder of its erratic beat over the roar of the waves crashing on the rocks below? She was so close to him she could see the thin, jagged white scar edging the line of his jaw--another souvenir of the war, no doubt.

“Did you hear me accept your ‘proposal’?” she murmured, nearly swallowing her words.

"You will.”

Love his last line. His utter confidence is so sexy.

The way you paint your scenes with emotion and visual impact makes for a fabulous read, even in six sentence snippets. This sounds like such a great story.

Congrats on your release. May it be the first of many.

Loved the snippet. Great description of both of them. From the sound of things, they've both been wounded, and are both in need of healing. So your title is perfect.

I hate coming up with titles. Still haven't come up with one I like for the WIP and its do to go out on submission within the next two weeks.

Drip, drip, drip...loved that! There is great chemistry between both characters!
