Six Sentence Sunday - Fragrance of Violets


'Fragrance of Violets' was released on February 1st and you can see a preview of the first chapter at Whiskey Creek Press http://bit.ly/yy73N9

Here are this week's six sentences from near the end of Chapter 1, when Abbey meets Jack for the first time since his return to her home village in the English Lake District:

Jack Tremayne stepped into the dim light cast by one of the car park lamps and Abbey caught her breath.

His dark sweatshirt stretched across wide shoulders and broad chest, and mid-blue jeans encased his slim hips and long legs. No longer a teenage boy, but a man whose compelling figure exuded confident masculinity. Something deep inside her turned a double somersault.

"What the hell are you doing here?" Resentment at her involuntary reaction to him lent an extra sharp tone to her voice.


More next week!

  10. Actually...you had me at the name Jack Tremayne - very dignified and lyrical. I always struggle with character names.

  14. Skye, it's funny you should mention his name. To start with, I couldn't think what to call him, so decided just to call him Jack until I thought more about his name. But then somehow he 'became' Jack, and I couldn't change it!
