SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY

It's that time of the week again - Six Sentence Sunday - and this week I've chosen six sentences from the third of my Beaumont Brides trilogy - WILD FIRE.

His touch was like summer lightning, wild fire that ran between them and as he continued to hold onto her hand, his eyes too seemed to heat from within.
They were not, as she had first thought, a steely grey, but were flecked with warm gold lights that seemed to bore into her very soul and for a moment she was certain that he felt the same charge of excitement. Then steeply hooded lids came down, cloaking his feelings.
'Guard it with your life, Melanie.'
The key was warm from his body, but his hands were cool. Long, slender fingers wrapped around her warm hand and the warmer key. Hidden layers of heat, like the hidden layers of meaning she sensed behind everything he said. 


If you want to read more, there are links for the Kindle, Nook and any other reading device (including your PC - so handy for a secret read when you should be working!) on the sidebar.

Thanks so much, Liz. Plucking six sentences out of 100,000 words is not easy, but I did like that one, especially since I managed to get the title in, too. :)

Liz Fielding said...

Thanks, Melissa. You do a great tease, yourself!

Liz Fielding said...

And emotion! A hat trick! Thanks so much, Sandra. And for dropping by.

You have some really interesting images, but a few of your sentences are a little awkward... like there are just a few too many words in there...

For example, your first sentence, I think, should read:

His touch was like summer lightning or wildfire that ran between them as he held her hand, and his eyes seemed to heat from within.
