Six Sentence Sunday: 7-8-2012

I'm baaaaack.

(At least this week.)

Here are the first six sentences from LIGHTNING, the sexy new paranormal I just contracted for Decadent Publishing's awesome 1Night Stand series. (It's with the editors now!)

                                                   ***
           “A little higher and more to the left.” 
            Lily Night narrowed her eyes as the building maintenance man shifted her framed diploma on the freshly-painted wall opposite her desk. She tried not to ogle the firm ass encased in a pair of tight jeans or the way the man’s shoulder muscles rippled beneath his T-shirt.
            Maybe if I pop an Altoid, I’ll have an excuse to wipe away the drool.
            She refrained from jumping the handsome worker dude’s bones.
            The last time she’d dallied with a human, the encounter had not gone well.
