Six Sentence Sunday - First Meeting

Another excerpt from my recently released 'His Leading Lady' with the first meeting between Jess and Kyle. This is a continuation from last week when Kyle told Jess that her twin sister Lora had disappeared, just days before rehearsals are due to start on his new West End show.

“Excuse me, Mr Drummond,” Jess said, more calmly than she felt, “but before you start issuing your orders and threats, I repeat – I simply don’t understand what you’re talking about.”

She met his gaze steadily although her heart had started to race.  She wasn’t sure whether it was sudden concern about Lora, or whether it was more to do with those dark eyes that still rested on her.

His brow furrowed as he looked at her, almost as if he was trying to read her mind, and then he shrugged slightly. 

Jess had forced herself not to flinch under his scrutiny.  When she let out the breath she’d been holding, she cursed inwardly as that same amused look crossed his face before his eyes bored into her again. 

More next week!

'His Leading Lady' available as e-book and paperback from or from Amazon

(Apologies in advance that I won't be able to answer any comments because, by the time you're reading this, I shall be enjoying the sunshine at Lake Garda in Italy, probably with no computer access.  But I still hope you'll leave your comments for me, even though I can't reciprocate on your blogs this week.)
