Weekend Writing Warriors

Another eight sentences from my contemporary romance, ‘Dream of Paris’.
Matt has just told Anna he’s been trying not to fall in love with her, but now he’s backing off again!
“I shouldn’t have said anything, not here in Paris.”
“Why not?”
“Everything could be very different once we’re back in Medport.”
“No, it doesn’t need to be—”
He reached across to squeeze her hand. “Anna, we need time, both of us, so—” Raising his glass, he tilted his head in a small, almost helpless gesture. “Here’s to the future, whatever it may bring.”
Why is he so unsure about everything? Nope, I’m not telling you anything more!
Many thanks to everyone who visits and leaves comments for me!
More Weekend Writing Warriors can be found here.
Dream of Paris can be downloaded for Kindle at Amazon USA, Amazon Canada and Amazon UK
Also available in various formats from Smashwords for Nook, iPad, Sony, Kobo, etc
Paperback version also now available on Amazon.
Anna Richards has a dream of going to live and study in Paris, but when Matthew Carlton comes into her life, her dream changes direction.
Attraction sparks between them, but Matt’s behaviour is strangely inconsistent. Anna is shocked when she discovers the reason and is sure there is no future for them.
Can Paris work its magic and make her dream come true?



  1. Oh, no. He speaks the truth most likely, but oh no all the same. Is it next Sunday yet :)

  2. You did an amazing job capturing his doubts, both with his actions and his words. Love it!

  3. Oh so intriguing and frustrating! Nicely done, excellent excerpt!

  4. He has his reasons, S.J. - but I can't tell you what they are :-)

    Jess - many thanks!

    Veronica - yes, you're right! Thanks!

  5. He probably has a deep, dark secret that will complicate their relationship.

  6. Elaine - not quite a deep dark secret, but definitely something that is troubling him.

  7. So I wonder why all of a sudden he is backing off? Reality setting in that Paris can't last forever or is he hiding something? Don't answer that. :)

  8. I'm answering, History Sleuth, but only to say it's a little bit of both actually!

  9. Probably something he thinks would turn her off totally if she knew.
