Celebrating Independence and Six Sentence Sunday

Doubles are still delightful!  Today, I am participating in Six Sentence Sunday as usual, but I’m also participating in the Celebrating Independence Blog Hop. There are oodles (cool word, huh?), yes, oodles of participating author-bloggers who are giving away goodies.  You can find the complete list here at the Fourth of July Hop page

I’m giving away a $20.00 gift card to Amazon.

If you’d like to enter to win all you need to do is sign up to follow my blog by email and leave a comment telling me you did. If you’re already an email subscriber, you’re enrolled to win. The contest runs from July 1 through July 4th at midnight. I’ll be announcing the winner using Random.org on July 5th.


And now, my Six Sentence Sunday post.  This is pulled from Weathering Rock, my paranormal/time-travel romance releasing on October 8th from Lyrical Press.  If you’ve been following along you know Caleb DeCardian has convinced Arianna Hart to have dinner with him. In my snippet, she’s just arrived and stepped inside the doorway. Picking up there (with some minor editing to keep to six sentences):


She brushed past him, catching the subtle hint of his aftershave, and the cleaner, lighter scent of soap as if he’d recently showered. He was dressed rather formally in gray trousers and a black button-front shirt open at the throat. The contrast against his white-gold hair was a striking combination of shadow and light. However much she wanted to pretend otherwise, she couldn’t deny her attraction.

 “Something smells goods,” she commented, catching a tantalizing blend of aromas wafting from the kitchen.

“I’m afraid I’m not a very good cook.”


Thanks for visiting and don’t forget to sign up for your chance to win a $20.00 gift card. Enjoy plenty of other SSS snippets by checking the complete list of participating authors at the Six Sentence Sunday website. Happy reading!

  1. yes can see you’ve edited this to fit into the six. Didn’t realise he’s blonde, fascinating, but what about the full moon bit ….(oh and nice use of “smell” in this snippet)


  2. OMG. He’s not picking up on her hints. So, he’s cooking and thought she meant that smell instead of him? Funny!
