Six Sentence Sunday 6/12



Welcome to another Six Sentence Sunday! As always, a huge thank you goes out to everyone who stops in every week, reads my six and comments. It means a lot to me.

This week, six more from my contemporary romance After Midnight. This week picks up immediately after my last six ended. In fact, I repeated a sentence to help you remember where we left off two weeks ago.



"Isabeau."

His voice brushed across her senses like a lover’s caress. His hand settled upon her arm.


His very large, very warm hand.


She opened her mouth, but no sound came out. Trapped by the contrast of his pale skin against her darker, golden tones, her mind blanked. He dwarfed her, which at five foot three wasn’t all that difficult to do. Her heart raced. His scent snaked into her lungs with each breath she took.


If you haven't already done so, make sure you check out the new home of Six Sentence Sunday, where you'll find a list of this week's participating authors.
