Six Sentence Sunday

I got back the rights on a few of my books including Four Winds Of Heaven so I'm going to be resubmitting that one to a new publisher soon. I figured I'd switch things up until Four Winds finds a new home and instead share a snippet from my contemporary erotic novella Shades Of Grey. This one is quickly becoming a fan favorite. Hmm...wonder why.... (grin) Hope you enjoy!

 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?

She’d known that look well. She’d seen him cultivate it out of necessity as a teenager. While other boys’ goals involved getting the hottest girls to notice them, throwing the game-winning touchdown, and mastering just enough of academics to get into a decent school, Ryan Wyatt wanted only to not feel, to be so cold, so strong that nothing could ever hurt him.

So instead, he hurt others. Claire stared at him now, seeing nothing of the shy, gentle boy she had grown up with. He’d been successful in his goal.
