Six Sentence Sunday


Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday. My excerpt for today is from A New Dream which is available at http://www.astraeapress.com/#ecwid:category=662245&mode=product&product=2676585 The book is available in in print or as an ebook. When you finish here find more sentences by checking the home site at http://www.sixsunday.com.

In this excerpt, my hero and heroine have just had an argument.

Violet tried to scramble to her feet, but Matt held her close.
“Be still,” he ordered. “If you’d stop acting all offended you’d like
the way it feels to sit on my lap.”

“Aren’t you afraid of scaring me now?” Violet accused in as
sarcastic a tone as she could muster. “You’re bullying me, Matt,
and I don’t like it.”

“You like everything about me,” Matt muttered as he pulled
her head down and kissed her again.

Doesn't sound like she's a woman easily bullied. A little spicy, too. I like it. Great six, Elaine.

The more I read about Violet and Matt, the more I like them. I think Violet is exaggerating when she calls Matt a bully!
