Six Sentence Sunday #18


Hi Everyone! As I told you a couple of weeks back, I've been in a mad dash, publishing all SIX parts to my Serial Novel, HIGHLAND VENGEANCE.

Part One: THE DARKEST DAY is FREE at Smashwords and ARe (99 cents at Amazon, since they won't let me put anything for free there unless and until they've had enough people tell them that they need to price match) and all the remaining parts are 99 cents. If you like family saga historical [medieval] adventure romances (with explicit sex scenes), you can click on the book covers on your right to be led to the sales page on Amazon.

Oh!! One more thing: If you guys haven't signed up and put your author info on Jimmy Thomas's new site (the cover model in the below novel cover): Romance Novel Center, DO IT. You do not need to be a published author to put your info up on the site. There are agents, publishers, authors all over this website. It's like a LinkedIn for Romance Writers. What an incredible business man this guy is. (Proving he's not just a pretty face/bod, LOL!!)
.

All right. Now to get down to the REAL business of the day: This week (and for the next few weeks), I'll be sharing snippets from my sensual novella (drama), A STRANGER'S KISS (Available exclusively at Amazon. If you'd like to read an excerpt, click here.)

Click here for the prior weeks' six

Set-up: David Anderson, a widower, met Karen Samuels in a bar the night before (Valentine's Day), took her home because she was too drunk to drive, and they ended up in the sack together. (Karen's own angst about this will be revealed in later snippets) Oh, just to let you know--that pic on the cover really captures these two characters (except I envisioned David with shorter hair, but I think this works, b/c he's no longer "corporate", he's pursuing an entrepreneurship as a restauranteur)

The new commercial grade appliances had been put in the day before and the electrical wiring was in, connected and working in the restaurant as well, so he set his attention on brewing himself some joe. He was all set to grab the carafe, when his gaze fell on the photo of Cindy, beaming her lovely smile at him as she sat in one of the swings at Memorial Park last summer, only a week before the night. He’d left the photo sitting on the counter the day before. Valentine’s Day. The day their baby had been due. The day he’d commemorated by getting drunk and cheating on his wife with a stranger he’d picked up in a bar.

    1. Thanks, Sandra! I created the covers myself (with the help of GIMP, iStockphoto and Jimmy Thomas!!)

  2. Hmmm, this guy's got serious baggage and self-destructive behavior. Perhaps the stranger he picked up is just what he needed?

    1. It's definitely dramatic--a lot different from the comedy of D&T. Although, there are humorous moments in the work as well. Thanks for the compliment!! =D

  6. Oh, that packs a punch. He still feels he's cheated even though she's gone. Wow. That's love. And then you throw in the unborn child just to give the knife another twist. You, my dear, are a talented sadist.
