Six Sentence Sunday 6/26/11

Looking forward to meeting everyone at RWA National this week!

And in the meantime, more from Surfer Dude, Lord of the Deep:

       Behind tortoise-shell glasses, intelligent eyes the startling aquamarine of a tropical lagoon stared back at him, revealing a warring array of emotions that sent another ripple of intense arousal shooting through him. 

      Pierce noted the inexplicable, guilt-tinged panic in her fascinating – and fascinated--gaze and, just beneath that, a compelling awareness as keen as his own. 

      Sleep deprivation might be making him more horny and reckless than usual but he bent toward her to remove her glasses. 

     Her breath hitched when he lifted his hand and a faint clicking, like the skitter of crab claws, filled the charged silence between them -- stopping the second he glanced up. Pierce noted the asymmetrical pincers of the small pink crustacean posing as a paperweight in the wall niche behind Mia's shoulder. 

     "You make a miserable shelf ornament, Cedric," he told the little Grapsus.
