Six Sentence Sunday: Sweet Isn't Exactly the Word I'd Use

Today's excerpt comes from Return Engagement which is available at In either print or ebook.


Elizabeth Lane has it all, but an actress isn’t the kind of woman Senator Henry Lovinggood wants for his son, Richard.  Ten years ago he broke Richard and Elizabeth up, but this time Elizabeth’s fighting back, a decision that leads to kidnapping and attempted murder and alienates her from the man of her dreams.

Excerpt:  In this excerpt, my heroine and my hero met each other at the beach after a ten year separation.  He has just won a cat for her at a shooting arcade. 

"Sweet? I don’t want to be sweet.” Ignoring the crowds of people all around them, he jerked her close which made her breath leave her in a little woof. “I want to be your lover. I want you to say I’m sexy and that you want me. I can’t believe you think I’m sweet.”

I'd love for you to read my article about summer at  LASR is having a big anniversay blowout with lots of prizes offered.

I like how he takes charge! I hope there's a happy ever after for these two.

That's the only kind I do. Thanks for stopping by.

I get the feeling in a minute "sweet" won't be what she's thinking anymore. Sounds like these two have a fight ahead of them to stay together. And that will make the happy ending even better.

Love it :) Great six, Elaine!

You're right, Kate. She changes her mind in a hurry.

Adelle, thanks for commenting. I don't think I've told you how much I enjoyed Iron Horse Rider. I've got to get a review for you on Goodreads and Amazon.
