Six Sentence Sunday

My sentences today are from an earlier work of mine titled The Welcome Inn.  In this book my heroine Julianna wanted to buy the motel that she managed, but the bank refused her offer and sold the Welcome Inn to Buck Abercrombie.  From the moment she meets Buck, Julianna can't stand him.  He's loud, rude, and chauvinistic, and his criminal brother Travis works for him.  Still, there's something about him...  The Welcome Inn is available at http://www.amazon.com/The-Welcome-Inn-ebook/dp/B003AKZBQ0/ref=sr_1_7?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1308450817&sr=1-7  This is the link for the kindle edition, but you can buy the book in paperback as well.

In this excerpt, Julianna has stayed overnight with Buck because someone broke into her apartment and trashed it.

Her voice trailed off as Buck stood up, and she made no protest when brawny, sunburned arms enclosed her and held her tight. He nuzzled his face against her neck, and Julianna quivered in his arms.

"You smell sexy," Buck growled. "I couldn’t sleep last night because I swear I could smell you in the other bed."

He buried one big hand in her tousled curls, and his lips, heavy and warm, pressed themselves against hers.

With a strangled moan, Julianna threw her arms around him and eagerly returned his kiss.

For someone who doesn't like Buck she sure has a funny way of showing it

Didn't know you wrote sizzlers, too, Elaine. This is a hot six. Now I'll need to buy the book! Great post.

I enjoyed your post. It sounds like Juliana overcame her dislike of Buck! Wonder where that will lead?

Elaine Cantrell said...

Thanks to everyone for stopping by. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit with Buck and Julianna.

Well, if that's the reaction he gets when she doesn't like him... :) Great Six!
