Six Sentence Sunday

In this excerpt, my heroine is reflecting on a wrong she thinks her husband has done to her. Her Kind of Man is available at http://www.fictionwise.com/ebooks/b133189/Her-Kind-of-Man/Elaine-Cantrell/?si=0  or at http://www.lachesispublishing.com/proddetail.asp?prod=Her%5FKind%5Fof%5FMan

blurb:
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.

Sentences:
“Where did you go last night?” Ross asked.

Kara sensed raw emotion swirling underneath his quiet voice, but he didn’t deserve consideration from her. “It’s none of your concern,” she answered, making her voice as cold and flat as possible. She bit the inside of her lip to hold back her tears. He looked so familiar, so dear, but he’d had an affair with another woman. As far as she was concerned, he had forfeited his rights as a husband.

Thank you, Jessica. Yes, Kara feels pretty low now.

Kate said...

That's so sad! I hope he doesn't give up, and convinces her of his innocence. He is innocent, right?

Elaine Cantrell said...

Of course, Kate. Thanks for stopping by.
