Six Sentence Sunday

Welcome and thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate your feedback so much.  I've been sharing character sketches from some of my characters, and today I'd like to do Richard Lovinggood from Return Engagement.  In this scene Elizabeth's fiance has just learned that she's involved with Richard.  We're in Richard's POV.


On our first full day as man and wife she cried over another man and sent her husband packing. She should have been worried about how I might be feeling. Instead, she focused on dear, sweet Alex.

He swallowed hard. He knew one thing: dear, sweet Alex had better stay the hell out of his way. You let that ambulance chaser so much as call Elizabeth…

Intense, isn't he?
