Six Sentence Sunday




Claire Lauder was the girl next door who fell in love with the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Now these ex-lovers find themselves on opposite sides of the law, but Claire soon learns that all is not as it seems. Ryan Wyatt is a man with a dark past who is given a second chance. The price? Betray the man and the organization that took him in when he had nothing. but will forgiveness be harder to earn from the woman he has never stopped loving?


For this week I thought I'd share a snippet from my novella Shades Of Grey with Amira Press.

Claire. The name stole his breath from him like a punch, and he slid to the floor, lowering his head to his knees. Had she been told yet? Did she know that the older brother she idolized was dead and that Ryan Wyatt had been there when it happened, had been just as responsible as if he had fired the shot himself? Did she hate him? He told himself he wanted her to hate him, to not be able to care less, really, because when those big blue eyes looked at him with love, he was left shaken and willing to lay himself bare before her, to give up everything just for the pleasure of seeing those eyes light up with love for him.

I think everyone wants to feel this "to give up everything just for the pleasure of seeing those eyes light up with love for him"- sparkling love filled eyes are the best

@Phoenix I think it's the idea that they're really just hurt inside and only need the love of the right woman to let their goodness come through. Of course, we never want to redeem them completely. (winks)
