Six Sentence Sunday 6/17/2012

Welcome to my Six Sentence Sunday entry!

Today I offer up six sentences from an in-progress novella about a female archaelogist who goes on a site in Turkey and digs up a gorgeous Greek hunk!

She stepped on a medium-sized rock without testing it first and it tilted to the left, taking her foot with it into the lee of a larger rock.  A sudden stab of pain confirmed it, she'd twisted her ankle!  Leaning on the olive branch, Sarah tried to pull her foot out of the hole, but it stuck fast. Growing worried, she tugged harder, supporting her weight with the stick and leaning back.  The sudden shift of rock and release of her foot left her reeling backwards.  Scrabbling at the surrounding rocks, Sarah fell back, her shoulders striking a shadowed section of the cliff face, then fell further as the layers of dirt and loose shale rock dissolved in a spray. 

I love comments!

One of my FAVORITE Romance Authors - Teresa Medeiros

I am hard at work on one short story, and still pecking away at a novella in my spare time, so I am not really blogging about anything lately.

I thought in the meantime, I'd share with you a brief passage from one of my favorite romance authors, Teresa Medeiros.  This is from her book Charming the Prince and if you like well-written romance with great plots, humor and a writing style that doesn't just paint pictures, it builds entire fairytale castles and peoples them and weaves a whole tapestry, then I suggest you read her books!

Had he seized her lips as roughly as he had seized her hands, she might have been able to resist him. But his mouth closed over hers with such unspeakable tenderness, she feared she might already be dreaming. A kiss so enchanting should have broken every curse, granted every wish, given even the saddest story a happy ending. As he explored the moist warmth of her mouth with his tongue, Willow knew she would not die a dried-up old virgin. When she lay upon her hard, narrow cot in the convent, gazing out the window at the falling snow and dreaming of this moment, her body would weep for him just as it was weeping now.
