Six Sentence Sunday



I figured since December means Christmas, I would share snippets from my Christmas themed novella Baby It's Cold Outside available at Sugar and Spice Press all month long!

First, the blurb: Madeline Delaney has suffered a terrible loss. She's returned to her home town with her daughter to spend Christmas with Madeline's grandmother. Next door is Jack DeLuna, an adolescent crush that seems to be rekindling into a very adult passion. Still reeling from the death of her husband, will Madeline have the courage to let Jack into her heart, or will guilt and the fear of loving someone again keep her from the future Jack has waited years to give her?



Jack DeLuna. Good lord.
“Hi,” Maddie replied, feeling a ridiculous girlish shiver that reminded her of the teenager she had been with her first serious crush on the handsome Mexican boy. She shook her head, telling herself she was shivering because of the cold.

He put the shovel down and walked over to her, a wide smile on his face. “I heard you were coming back to town. It‟s good to see you.”

Oh, a helpful man with a shovel. I like him already.

The shiver is more about heat than cold, I'm thinking. Great snippet.

Thanks Ruthie! Jack is definitely a 'hands on' type of guy!

Gem, I'd say you're quite right!

Guilie said...

Sweetie, you made me shiver too. AND he's Mexican--my favorite bad boys :) Nothing like an old passion rekindled. My first novel has a similar theme, so this one brought memories I particularly enjoy :)

Thanks for sharing!

Oh, yum. Rekindling an old passion ... yummier. I bet these two are going to heat things up before it's over!

Jessica Subject said...

Thanks Siobhan!

Lisa Fox said...

That doesn't sound like a shiver because of the cold to me!

E. Jamie said...

You'd be right about that, Lisa!
