Six Sentence Sunday - Walking The Edge: Snippet #5
Sunday once again, and jumping on the Six Sunday bandwagon to present a quip from Walking The Edge. Did you know that the book was at #6 on the Noble Romance Top10 Bestseller list this past week? Thanks to all of you who bought a copy...
... and thanks to everyone who drives by every Sunday and leaves me a comment. :)
So last week's excerpt was about a dream Amelia had during one of her drug-induced naps. She saw this Frenchman in bed with her, and when he told her they couldn't keep going on, the two of them, she shushed him, and told him that when she is with him, she isn't "her". You can catch it here.
Today's six follow upon this conversation, the rest of the dream sequence. Here we go:
'... "Putain d'merde," he cursed softly in French, "Tu vas me tuer."
You'll be the death of me. Despite herself, she smiled - she held power over this man, and damn if she didn't relish the feeling: He was hers, all hers. Right now, she preferred not to think of the other meaning that could be ascribed to his words—she could literally spell his death too. If the man she was with came to know about her lover—no, she wouldn't think of that, not now, not when his mouth was claiming hers and he was pushing her back onto the mattress.
Right now belonged to them, and them alone. ...'
Catch the other amazing SSS folks and their snippets here.
And don't forget - Walking The Edge (Corpus Brides: Book One) is on sale here, at the bargain price of $1.99 for a full-length novel!
