For these final two weeks of Six Sentence Sunday, I’ll give you teasers from ‘Dream of Paris’ which will be released next month.
Anna is a teacher at a high school, and is trying to quell her attraction to the new Deputy Headteacher, Matt Carlton. This excerpt takes place at the school prom when, to Anna’s delight, she finds herself dancing with Matt – even though they are swaying to the music about a foot away from each other. But then fate steps in -
When a group of girls started to back into them, Matt caught her hand and moved her sideways out of their way. At the same time, he slipped his arm round her and drew her closer. Automatically she brought her hand up to his shoulder, and he swung them both into a pivot, which carried them away from the other dancers.
His leg pressed between hers as they turned, and the melting sensation in her stomach became a flood of arousal. Hot pulses of pleasure throbbed through her, and her mind shut down, allowing a million pinpricks of desire to run riot.
He smiled down at her and his dark eyes softened as his arm tightened around her.
Here’s the (provisional) blurb for 'Dream of Paris':
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?
A huge thank you to everyone who voted for me in the Preditors and Editors 2012 Poll. When voting ended last Monday, 'Her Only Option' was in 1st place in the Romance Novel Category! The ‘official’ announcement of the results hasn’t yet been made but hopefully, once everything has been checked and verified, I’ll retain that top place.
