Six Sentence Sunday: Oh, I Know. The Attic.

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday. As some of you know, several weeks ago I started sharing excerpts from a turning point in my book Her Kind of Man. In summary, this is what's happened. My heroine just returned from her sister's wedding. Since her sister stole her fiance, Kara isn't feeling extremely happy. In fact, she's so angry and upset that she destroys her wedding dress. Here's the next six sentences in the excerpt. If you've been following along, stay with me. We're getting there.

Oh, and I'm super proud of this book. It's currently  number 6 in romance and number 22 overall at Fictionwise.  You can get it at

Is it possible she’s finally found Her Kind of Man?

Ross Williams has been in love with Kara Cochrane since they were kids so when Kara's fiancĂ© Brandon Miles cheats on her and calls off their wedding—Ross steps in to rescue the damsel in distress.
A heartbroken Kara just wants to get on with her life and hunky Ross provides her with a definite distraction—that is until she starts falling for him. Big time.

But a devastating family secret threatens to destroy everything that Kara holds dear—including her relationship with Ross.
Six Sentences:
She’d hide the dress in the attic. Last month her father had installed a disappearing staircase to give them easy access to the attic. She’d hide the dress there because staircase or no staircase, nobody ever went up there.
She dragged the heavy bundle into the hallway and pulled the staircase down, revealing a yawning, pitch black hole.  Thank goodness her father had installed a light up there. It was torture to climb the stairs while pulling the heavy dress behind her, but desperation gave her strength, and she got the dress into the attic.

Could this be her wedding dress that she's hiding? The attic seems like just the right place to me.
I want to thank you for leaving a comment on my post yesterday. Your support and input is sincerely appreciated.

Like the others I wonder whether it's her wedding dress. Plenty of tension in these six.

Aw, poor girl. Destroyed her dress and is now hiding it. These snippets with the dress are wonderful. So full of emotion.

Ladies, thank you so much for stopping by. Hiding that wedding dress is going to cost Kara.
