It's a bright, sunny Sunday here in Mauritius - perfect weather to hit the beach, as my snorkeling-crazy lads are hinting not so conspicuously. :) I love bright days, but I don't really like being out in the sun... so sitting down in my living room bathed by sunlight to catch up on all those amazing Six Sunday Sentence excerpts sounds like my kind of plan for a perfect end of the weekend.
Thanks to everyone who comes by every week to read my snippets from Walking The Edge. Your words mean so much - you have no idea. Reading all your comments is a highlight of my week.
Now, without further ado (I know, summer and sun take me into melodrama world - told you I didn't like the sun coz it messes up my brain!), here's this week's six...
...a continuation of last week's excerpt. Remember, Gerard, the police commissaire in Marseille, faced certain death when the thug who assaulted him pulled out a gun. But then something happens - a woman steps in, brings the thug down and shoots him dead. She ends up saving Gerard's life, and he is forced to reconsider his previous deductions about her...
"... It can't be. She was the same woman who'd met him at the bistro, yet, at the same time, she wasn't - her features were different, harder, and, he realized with dread, completely focused yet expressionless.
Something told him to take another look. She hadn't dropped the gun, and for an insane moment, he wondered if she'd aim it his way and shoot. There had been no hesitation in her two shots, and, as his eyes took in the way she held the Sig—one hand curled around the grip and the other anchoring it—a realization clattered in his brain.
She held it like a professional and merde if she hadn't shot like a professional too. ..."
Catch the rest of the SSS posse and their snippets here - you won't be disappointed. :)
From Mauritius with love,
Wonderful six! Great work lovely Lady.

Thank you Sandra! Yes, Mauritius is a lovely, beautiful place. Paradise on earth :) and I can't conceive of living elsewhere.
Glad you liked the six! Thanks for dropping by. :)
Loved your 6...great internal musings showing his conflict about his feelings for her. Can't wait to see what you post next week!
Intriguing lady! Great details about how she holds the gun to demonstrate her proficiency in it.
Not much sexier than a woman who knows how to use a gun. lol! Great six!!
I couldn't wait to get back here this week. Your story has stuck with me. It is definitely on my TBASAP (to buy as soon as possible) pile. Great six!
Mauritius! Color me impressed and jealous. I'm with you about the sun though. On to the six. I adore a strong woman capable of surprising with her abilities. Nice!
Oh, love this - two sides of the same woman. Definitely has his attention now, lol. Great work!
Love a woman who can handle herself! Awesome six!

Aww, thanks Cherie! So glad you're liking the story :)
Lol, Claire! Yup, I live in paradise. :) But there's too much sun *never happy, aren't I?*
Yes too, I have a suprising heroine here. She's got lots of facets :)
That's right, Cate - she definitely has his attention now! :)
Thanks Jennifer! :)
Awesome - thanks, Sue! Glad I did my job *evil laugh!* :)
Yep she sounds thoroughly professional. Now, what's he gonna do about that? Great six!
Lol, Lex - he's in a dilemma now. :)
Great six! :)
I think he's in big trouble!
Your characters are developing nicely. Well done.
Great six, makes me want to know more about her!
Super suspenseful and well-written. It's great to follow along with his deductions as he makes them! Excellent six!
Love a "professional" woman. *BG* Great six!
I wonder how she got there in time to save him? And just who is she? intriguing 6.
Loving the story even more. I just put it on my Wish List at Amazon
Great tension and suspense.
Thank you Siobhan! :)
Lol Cara - yep, he's in trouble, getting sucked into a mire. And what he knows of her right now is not even the half of it. :)
Thanks Paula - my work is done, then, if you're intrigued. :)
Thanks Jalisa. I wanted to give a good glimpse of what's unraveling inside his mind right upon that moment - glad if this came through. :)
Lol Gem - yep, a professional indeed. :)
She met Gerard at a bistro in town, and they had a rather violent encounter in the alley next to the eatery. He thought he left her weakened and scared, but she picked herself up and has been following him all the way (you can catch previous SSS snips where the fight in the alley was shown).
Who is she? That's the real question. :)
Thank you, Lindsay! Let me know if you get the book. Thanks in advance :)
LOVE IT, as always! Zee...YOU ROCK!
Great six - really enjoyed this :)
Thank you, JoAnne! Rock like a hurricane? Or maybe not *grin*
Thank you, Lucy! Glad you could come over! )
ARGH!! I want more right now!!!
