Six Sentence Sunday - First Meeting


Another excerpt from my recently released 'His Leading Lady'. For those who've read my excerpts about Jess and Kyle's first kiss, I'm now showing you their very first meeting. This is a continuation from last week.

“You thought I was Lora.”

The man’s gaze slowly travelled the full length of her body and Jess glanced down at her short peach skirt and her silky cream top.  Suddenly she wished it wasn’t quite so low-cut and didn’t reveal so much of her cleavage. 

“Yes, you’re definitely twins, but you’re slimmer than Lora, and your hair’s longer,” he said candidly. 

Her natural cordiality cooled at his blatant appraisal of her figure.  “I don’t like being inspected, Mr Drummond.”

More next week!

    Jess and Kyle have a lot more verbal sparring still to come, believe me!
