Six Sentence Sunday: 1st Sneak Peek at my latest contracted #1NS!

Credit: www.123rf.com
Hey beautiful people!

It's a cold and dismal Sunday here, but guess what - I am flying high! Opened my email inbox yesterday to find a contract offer for the latest 1NightStand story I wrote for Decadent Publishing.

Too excited - I just had to share, and what better than a fell swoop with Six Sentence Sunday to introduce you to this new story I kept under wraps for the past few weeks?

Here's the story in a nutshell: You all know how a 1NightStand story works, right? Two people brought together on a blind date by Madame Eve.
My two people here are Leila and Khalid Al-Nadir. Yes, they're an estranged Muslim couple. Leila, a Londoner, was sold off to a much older man in the United Arab Emirates. Ten years of that miserable life, and something happens...

This six should enlighten you about what takes place (and yes, that picture is exactly how I imagined them!). Leila is in Mauritius, at Khalid's stepmother's house.


'...

A sliver of remembrance sliced through her; she did recall something else. Tenderness, caring, gentleness – all of which she’d found one magical night with the man who saved her from that existence, when her first husband divorced her out of the blue. The man who made her his wife....
To then drug her before morning came and take her all the way from Abu Dhabi to Mauritius, where he dropped her, still unconscious, into Carole’s house, before he vanished.
Don’t think of him. If she did, the tears would threaten to fall, the anguish would come back, as well as the desperation of knowing he’d saved her only to leave her even more alone than before.
...'


Why did Khalid abandon her? He hides a dark secret - his intentions when he married Leila weren't noble... He did end up falling in love with her, so what to do, except set her free?

Leila wants answers; Khalid wants salvation. Is this what they will find when Khalid's stepmother meddles in and sets these two up for a 1NightStand date?

Find out when Once Upon A Second Chance comes out!

Don't forget to check the SSS list for amazing snippets - especially from Jessica E. SUbject, Siobhan Muir, Samantha Paige, Monica Enderle Pierce, Cara Bristol, Carmen deSousa, Kate Warren, JM Blackman - among many, many others!

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

From Mauritius with love,

Zee
