SixSunday 42 A HEART IS A HOME




Good morning and happy Six Sentence Sunday, everyone! Thanks so much to all of you who stop by, and especially to those of you who have taken the time to leave comments. They are so appreciated.

I'm still sharing some snippets from my Christmas release, A Heart Is A Home: Christmas in Texas. As promised, this week, you'll finally get a glimpse into Joy's POV!

 ~The Blurb~

How does a smart, easygoing serial monogamist tame a closet Bohemian?

Adam Taylor believes selling his childhood home is the only way to put the past...and the memories behind him. Then he meets Joy Pettigrew. The uptight real estate broker isn't what she seems.

Freaky and Joy Pettigrew no longer mix. She's a corporate girl now. She plans to make the sale, get the commission, and never look back. So how does she keep the truth from Adam Taylor long enough to get him to sign on the dotted line? He swears he wants to sell his grandfather's house and move on. She knows he's lying to himself. He insists she throw off the fa├žade she's hiding behind. She knows she's lying to herself. She also knows he's going back to Houston. Nothing she does will change his mind...and even their shared passion won't convince her to go with him.

She's already home. After all, Christmas is just around the corner and everyone knows you spend Christmas at home.


I'm picking up directly after the last sentence from my last sss post. The first lines are the last of Adam's POV, and is Joy's answer to his query as to whether she'd found any problems with the house that needed attention.


She nodded. “Yes, a couple. But nothing too drastic.”
* * *
Adam Taylor had turned out to be just as dark-haired and good-looking—though much more mussed and sleepy—and oh-so charming, as all the gossips in town had been buzzing about since his grandfather’s passing last Saturday. And the bedroom-eyed look she’d caught him giving her just now only confirmed her already heightened suspicion of him as a player and good-time Charley.

Why, he’d merely—and literally—phoned in his own grandfather’s funeral arrangements.
