Grown-up love stories, because we're never too old for a little sexy romance…

Weekend Writing Warriors


This is my first time to try something like this, but the idea intrigued me. So here are seven sentences from my current WIP, Like Fine Wine. Julianne Miles has just arrived in Chicago to stay in her friend’s apartment for a few weeks. She’s believes she’s alone until she hears a man come in…uninvited…

I was supposed to be here, this guy certainly wasn’t.

He was tall and his spiky blond hair, backlit by the sun, shone in a gold halo around his head. “Do I know you?” he asked. “Are you Jules?”

I brushed past him and headed for the kitchen.

“I’m the widow fucking Miles,” I said. “And I need a drink.”

Be sure to check out more participants and see what else is new out there…enjoy!

    Thank, Roben! Working hard on the two MI books–hope to have them out by summer! Hold a good thought, okay?

    lol, wow! She’s rough on the guy!

    Good visual–you paint it well. Nice snippet.

    Welcome aboard. There will probably be a few bumps the first couple of weeks with the new group. Hope you stick with it. I can’t emphasize enough how beneficial it is to go the linky list and find other participants, and then visit them. 🙂

    I’ll be back to visit again. 🙂

    Thanks, Teresa. I’m already going through the list–great stuff! I want to continue, so I’ve got my phone alarm set up to ping me on Saturday morning to do the blog and then auto-post on Sunday morning. Thanks for the opportunity to share my work and get it out before the readers!

    I love the description of the stranger, especially the way his hair takes on the appearance of a halo. She sure is harsh to him, though! I hope she gets her drink.

    Hi Clare–welcome! Yeah, she needs the drink–real, real bad! 😉 She’s had a rough year. Thanks for coming by!

    Interesting snippet, your heroine has attitude to spare. I’m left with questions inagoodway of course. Will be interesting to read more.

    Sue Ann, thanks for stopping by! The apartment belongs to her friend, Carrie, whose story comes first…

    YIKES! I hope she halfway knows who he is or why he’s there because she’s got some MAD nerve not to lay him out, lol! I love her already. (Love your blog, too!)
