Six Sentence Sunday 3/27/11


Was thinking about trying out my squeaky new Kitchen Sink WIP this week but...it may need to percolate,  not to mention progress...

And Stacey Kennedy gave HEALING HEARTS a review on Paranormal Romantics last week that absolutely made me sniffle. She plucked seven sentences that, she said, made her fall in love with Adam and "get all giddy over the man." I've never excerpted those before. 

So...in honor of Stacey's review and Adam's new Romance Trading Card designed by Angela Waters, the artist who created the Healing Hearts cover for Carina Press -- and egged on by @Stacey_Kennedy and @LisaFoxRomance on Twitter, here they are, magically condensed to 6:


Emma stared from one man to the other as if a bolt of lightning had riveted her to her place behind the large piece of furniture, revulsion filling her eyes when she looked at Farraday—shame when she gazed upon Adam.

Damn it to bloody blue blazes, he thought. The hell with her stiff-backed pride. He would have leapt to her side and knocked the other man senseless if he could. But he’d left his agility in a Spanish ditch.

“To me, Emma,” Adam repeated, his voice calm but forceful.

Great six, love the trading card details, I'm intrigued.

I approve. Great six, as always, Taryn! Adam;s trading card looks fab!

Lisa Fox said...

Great card, great snippet and GREAT book. Adam is definitely a man to get 'giddy' over.

Sandra Sookoo said...

Wonderful 6! Great hero!

Liz said...

I love that - the conflict of what he wants to do but can't!

Ann Mayburn said...

-happy sigh- I can see why that made her fall in love. Beautiful strength and voulnerability.

Ella Drake said...

This is a great snippet. Full of conflict!

And the trading card is fantastic!

Gem Sivad said...

Adam's voice resonates arrogance. Farraday, frustrated need to protect. Wonderful snippet!

Tara Stearns said...

I know what happens :-)

Liia Ann White said...

I read Healing Hearts this week and LOVED it so much! It's a great story.

Taryn Kincaid said...

Um, Adam's the good guy, Gem. Farraday's the villain. The last thing he wants to do is protect. You knew that, right?

Taryn Kincaid said...

Tara -- It's a romance! We ALL know what happens! LOL!

Dee Carney said...

Great six Taryn!

Oooh, I love these sentences when I read the review and I still love them now.

Aha, there it is! I am intrigued by the relationship between these three, especially her and Adam. And that's a good thing because I got the book sitting right here. *happy dance*

Thanks for coming back and trying again, Vivien! Hope you enjoy Healing Hearts!

JoAnne Kenrick said...

Taryn, yeay for more Adam... he is one character that has stayed with me long after I'd finished reading. you know, i still think of him from time to time. You are an amazing writer! Thanks for sharing a few lines to pull him forward in my mind again. I can't wait to read more of your work!
Anyone who hasn't read Healing Hearts yet, what the heck are you waiting for? It's amazing!!!

I loved this book when I read it and I loved those 6 sentences. Lots of reasons to love him.

What a great six!

Laurie A. Green said...

Awesome. Letting his voice do what his body no longer can. I can see why the reviewer loved Adam so much.

Your trading cards are awesome, too!

Sigh. Sigh. And sigh. Yes, I got goosebumps all over the place...again!!! :D

Wendy S Marcus said...

Great trading card. One of the nicest I've seen. But I've been so busy writing I'm out of the loop. Is there a purpose to the cards or are they simply to hand out?
Thanks!

Laura Kaye said...

Oh, sigh. Can't wait to read this! Nice trading card too!

laynap said...
