Weekend Writing Warriors 8-Sentence Sunday #10
It’s been a busy week and it’s only going to get busier as we head out to spend a week with Grandboy and Son and DIL. Can’t wait to get my Nanny hands on that sweet baby! He’s growing up so fast, I can hardly stand it.
I’ve been offering snippets from my two WIPs for last nine weeks, so for week 10, I thought I’d do something different and give you 8 sentences from my published novel Rule Number One, which is available at Amazon and Barnes&Noble both as an e-book or in print. The book blurb is “Decorator and home stager Katy Ruth Gilligan has sworn off men. She’s been married to two no-good cheating weasels, so when handsome book publisher Jack Walsh shows up on her doorstep and pretends to be her hired escort, she’s not one bit amused. Jack’s back home from traveling the world as a journalist, ready to take over as CEO of his family’s publishing business. Not only does he want to hire Katy’s firm to renovate his family’s historic building, he’s also very interested in exploring the attraction between them. At first, she’s humiliated and furious, but the job will put her on a fast track to success. Despite the fact that she’s drawn to her new client, Katy’s determined to protect her heart. Can Jack convince her that the third time’s a charm?”
This snippet is the first eight sentences in the book:
She didn’t even say hello when she opened the door. Jackson Walsh stepped back. She was unbelievable! Tall, probably about five nine and curvy—like Marilyn Monroe or Jennifer Lopez curvy—bosomy, wide hipped, and…delicious. A woman you just wanted to strip naked and ravish. Her eyes were huge and dark brown, they reminded him of rich chocolate. Jack felt those eyes all the way to the center of his soul, but that wasn’t where the feeling was manifesting.
