Six Sentence Sunday - After the Kiss


Sorry I missed last Sunday – I forgot to sign up!

It's Sunday here in the UK so, for Six Sentence Sunday, here is another excerpt from my newly released 'His Leading Lady' which continues the scene of Jess and Kyle's sizzling first kiss (when Jess is pretending to be her twin sister). For anyone new to Six Sunday, please look back to my previous Sunday posts. 

When he released her, her breathing was ragged and she looked up at him, dazed and disorientated.

For a couple of seconds, Kyle’s stunned dark eyes stared down into hers before he took a deep breath and gave her a wry grin.  “You certainly know how to make a man regret his decision.” 

His lips brushed her mouth again in a brief parting kiss and even that burned through her.  Still totally numb, she watched as he went into the lift and pressed the ground floor button She raised her hand slightly and, with a small smile, Kyle tilted his head in farewell.

'His Leading Lady' now available as e-book and paperback from www.whiskeycreekpress.com or from Amazon http://amzn.to/opp1ky or Fictionwise http://bit.ly/oBqh5u

  10. Geez, if that's a goodbye kiss... I guess it pays to impersonate one's twin?

  14. One senses a rather long foreground of deception here. Of course, that means greed for the story: both what happened before and what happens after.

  15. You definitely do a good job hinting at a story that Jess, and the reader, is not yet aware of.

  22. Very visual. From the way they say goodbye I get the sense they don't want to.
