SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY

Welcome to my very first SSS - and if you don't know what that is, click here.

Here are six sentences from my upcoming Riva/Romance, FLIRTING WITH ITALIAN...


Her brain was apparently engaged, busy dealing with a bombardment of signals.  The sun hot on her arms, her throat, her breasts.  The sensuous sweep of the mouth hovering above her own, the scent of warm skin, leather…
The world seemed to have slowed down and it took forever for his lips to reach hers.  Somewhere, deep inside her brain the word “…no…” was teetering on the brink and all she had to do was move her lips,say it,but her butter-soft mouth seemed to belong to someone else. 
When it parted, it was not to protest; as his mouth found hers a tingle of something like recognition raced like wildfire through her blood, blotting out reason and her body, with nothing to guide it, softened, melted against him, murmured, “Yes…”



Coming soon!

Kaelee said...

Had not heard of SSS but I really enjoyed yours. What a neat way to promote your story.

Anne McAllister said...

Sounds like a fun idea, Liz. And the book yanked me right in!

Liz Fielding said...

Saw that on the lovely Nic Marsh's blog and it seemed such a neat idea!

Jenny Haddon said...

Coo-er, Liz, that's a book I've got to read. Coming soon, you say; how soon?

What a great idea. Six sentences it usually enough to tell whether you like a writer's voice too. Though I admit that, when browsing, I usually give a book a page.

Liz Fielding said...

It's a December release, Jenny. I don't have the Riva cover yet - keeping fingers crossed for another scorcher!

Jeff Rivera said...

Content for making a love. I will check it out

Liz Fielding said...

Hi Anne! It's been too long. All work, work, work...

Liz Fielding said...

Thanks so much, Carrie. :)

Liz Fielding said...

Hi Kaelee - saw it on Nic Marsh's blog and was instantly hooked myself. (Check out her SSS for her Bollywood book!)

Liz Fielding said...

Welcome, Jeff!

Cally said...

What a great idea, have borrowed it for my blog and linked back to you.

Thanks so much, Cally!

Welcome to SSS, Liz. Looking forward to reading more of your excerpts.

gemma parkes said...

This sounds beautiful Liz, looking forward to reading more!

Liz Fielding said...

Hi Zee! I thought that was the purpose! Aren't you desperate to read the book now? I hope so. :)

It's a great idea - one I'm going to be having a lot of fun with. Thanks so much.

Liz Fielding said...

Thanks so much, Gemma. It was such a joy writng a book set in Italy.

Zee Monodee said...

Lol, true! You're wicked, you know that? :)

Marlena Cassidy said...

Six awesome sentences, Liz. I love it and I hope we can all read more soon!

Very lush and sensuous! Welcome to Six Sunday!

Elaine AM Smith said...

Your Six sentences uncurled!
You had me wrapped in the haze you wrote:

and her body, with nothing to guide it, softened, melted against him, murmured, “Yes…”

WOW!

Christine Warner said...

Beautifully written...I'm looking forward to December even though I'm not looking forward to snow. At least I can be stuck indoors with a terrific read. Great Six!

Liz Fielding said...

:) Christine ... Who'd have thought that six sentences could have such an impact!

Carissa said...

That was really beautiful, Liz. Amazing how a kiss with the 'right' one can feel so familiar. :-)

Liz Fielding said...

Thanks so much Elaine and Carissa!

And Cally, you're welcome!

Nicola Marsh said...

Liz, I'm so glad you found SSS via my blog, it's a great concept!

I'm making it a weekly feature on mine, so much fun!

Can't wait for 'Flirting with Italian.'

That snippet makes me want it NOW.
And that cover...oh my...stunning!

Gail Crane said...

SSS - What a great idea!
I bet you hook some new fans with those six lines.
I love them!

Karen said...

Great fun!

Is it hot in here ...?

Liz Fielding said...

Bless you, Nic!

Liz Fielding said...

I hope so, Gail and Karen, fanning myself a little!
