Six Sentence Sunday

Now that We'll Meet Again has been released, I thought I'd shift focus this week with a snippet from my contemporary romantic suspense Strawberry Wine available at Sugar and Spice Press!

First the blurb: Laura and Caleb were teenage sweethearts. Then Laura disappeared, leaving nothing behind but a simple note.

Now she’s back, a street smart cop on the trail of an underground child sex slave operation right in the heart of New York City and she’s been sent to Caleb’s division to help bring down one of the most reprehensible men in the country. When the old lovers are partnered up, can they put their old hurts aside to do their jobs and save the children?

“Caleb has just been made the lead detective on that case. You‟ll be working with him on this.”

The room around her seemed to shrink, and Laura held her breath for so long only the pressure in her chest reminded her that she wasn‟t breathing. When she tried to take in air, she choked on it and coughed violently.

Sergeant McKinney stood up and got her some water from the cooler in the corner of his office.

She downed it in one gulp and crunched the paper cup.

Interesting six. I'm curious to see how she deals with Caleb when he's actually in front of her. :)

Thanks Siobhan! Sparks will most definitely fly.

AW, man, the POTENTIAL here! I love the "sparks" from a couple of folks who half hate one another and 100% want to get nekkid! LOL.

I have to confess, I checked Monday first thing and didn't see your book. Now that I see it HAS been released, I'll get it (probably tomorrow) but I was not, as I promised, one of your release day sales. Now I'm not even one of your release MONTH sales, LOL, but I'm going to grab it when I get the rest of the gift certificates from the blog tour. :c) Can't WAIT to read it!

Thanks Sarah! There was a delay with We'll Meet Again so it didn't go up till late Monday night! When you pick it up I hope you enjoy it!
