Another eight sentences from my work in progress 'Irish Inheritance' for the Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday.
Guy and Jenna have met at Dublin airport and are sharing a cab, but neither yet knows the other is the co-inheritor of a legacy and a house in Ireland.
This is in Guy’s POV.
Jenna laughed and splayed her fingers to push her long dark hair back from her face. For some reason, the movement was incredibly sexy, and he experienced a momentary urge to run his fingers through her hair, exactly as she’d done. He had a vision of her wavy hair spread on a pillow…
Cool it, Guy. You’ve only just met this girl - and she’s an actress.
He glanced through the cab window to divert his mind from the still painful memory of the way Suzie had dumped him when she went to L.A. “So do you have any recommendations about what I should see while I’m here in Dublin? I’m hoping to have a couple of free days after I’ve sorted out some legal matters.”

Many thanks to everyone who visits each Sunday, and for your encouraging comments.
Here's my first (very rough!) draft of the 'blurb' for 'Irish Inheritance' for those of you who want to know more about this story:
English actress Jenna Sutton and American artist Guy Sinclair first meet when they jointly inherit a house on the west coast of Ireland. Curious about their unknown benefactress and why they are both considered as 'family', they gradually work out their links to the original owners of the house. At the same time as they are uncovering a nineteenth century love story, they struggle against their mutual attraction to each other. The two lovers in the past were destined not to have a happy ending, and it seems the same thing will happen to their two descendants - or will it?
