Six Sentence Sunday

This excerpt comes from Return Engagement which is available at http://www.whiskeycreekpress.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=819

In this excerpt my heroine just got a message from my hero asking her to meet him in an unfamiliar place.

She took three steps into the quiet darkness before she finally realized something was wrong. Things didn’t feel right in this room. Every nerve in her body screamed danger, and she seemed to have ice water instead of blood in her veins. She was getting out of here!  With a gasp, she turned to run, but she had waited too late.  A small man stood between her and the front door.

I love it when someone knows she's in danger and reacts to it--even if it is too late.
