Six Sentence Sunday: Why the secrecy?... Once Upon A Stormy Night (1NightStand series)

Hey beautiful people!

Seems like the rain and fog have let up to grant us some tepid sunshine this morning. Bland heat, but I'll take that over seep-into-your-bones cold and humidity, the kind we've had this past week. Nothing quite brightens a Sunday like sunshine... and a few hops on the Six Sentence Sunday list!

As promised, throughout June, I'm sticking to my 1NightStand release, getting you acquainted with Lars and Simmi. Theirs is a bit of a different/tricky situation. Both wanted a one-night tryst with a stranger - no expectations, no shared past, not even an acquaintance hindering that one night. Simmi even shushed Lars when he tried to tell her his name.

He's okay with the non-disclosure... until he does see her clearly, and realize he knows who she is... Remember, last week, he pulled her into the villa and tensed up when she stopped on the edge of the living room? Simmi had stopped in the glow of an applique light, and Lars realizes he's seen her picture, once. She's a strategic partner for his firm in Mauritius...


'...
Why did one of the most beautiful, intelligent, and successful women of Mauritius choose to be here tonight? Simmi could have her pick of men.
And she doesn’t want to know my name....
“Why?” he asked.
She parted her full, pink lips; they seemed devoid of artificial color—soon, he would know. But first, he wanted answers.
“Why what?” she asked in a voice that held a low, sultry note.

...'


Catch the rest of the SSS posse over at the official list - and make sure to check out the following peeps: Jessica E. Subject, Siobhan Muir, Lorraine Paton, Elin Gregory, Angela Quarles, Monica Enderle Pierce, Christine Warner, Jennifer Lowery, JM Blackman, Lisa Fox, Sue, & Kate Warren... among many other fab folks who post every Sunday!

Hope you're having a lovely weekend, peeps!

From Mauritius with love,

Zee

He's breaking the rules! He's gonna have to be punished. Hmmm, maybe that's what she's hoping for.

Ah ha, best laid plans aren't going so smoothly now. :) Very nice six!

Sue, the big question is: IS she playing? :)

Lol, Monica! You've got a wicked mind, Lady (but I like how you think *grin*) :) XOXO

Exactly, Babette - the best laid plans always get derailed. That's the fun of romance, innit? :)

Teasing or tempting? Fun six, Zee. And as always, thank you so much for the mention. :)
