Six Sentence Sunday, Feb. 27th


Happy First Anniversary, Six Sentence Sunday! To celebrate, I’m giving away an ebook version of either one of  my novels, Montana Belle or Forget-Me-Not, reader’s choice. To enter, leave a comment containing your email address and indicate which book you would prefer.
Here is this week’s snippet. I call it, “Lara in the Tub.” She thinks she’s alone. . . 

A vague, uneasy skitter of alarm went through her, but before she could piece together what the cool draft meant, she heard a second sound that was unmistakably a footstep. Her eyes flew open, her gasp changing to a scream when she saw the dark silhouette of a man standing over her in the dimly lit room. She lunged for the side of the tub unthinkingly, but only flailed and fell back into the water with a mighty splash.
“Please don’t drown yourself, or fall and break your neck. I want the pleasure of throttling you myself.”

About Linda Morris

Linda Morris is a multipublished writer of contemporary and historical romance. She writes stories with heart and heat, and a joke or two thrown in. When she's not writing, working, or mommying, she's doing yoga, reading, working in her flower garden, or baking delicious things she probably shouldn't eat. A beat-up old copy of Kathleen Woodiwiss's "Ashes in the Wind" that her mom bought for her at a garage sale years ago was her "gateway drug" into the world of romance novels. Her all-time favorite romance writers include Laura Kinsale, Patricia Gaffney, Elizabeth Delancey, and Marjorie Ferrell. Current favorites include Julie Anne Long, Erin McCarthy, and Shannon McKenna.

    Ok, that's giggle worthy. You did a great job of ratcheting up the scary tension and then turning it loose into giggles at the last moment with just a hint of sexiness to come.

  5. Absolutely chilling. I can sense Lara's panic and hear that calm but threatening voice. What a great hook line. Wonderful six.

  19. Oh, love the way you built up the sinister suspense and then switched us to the hero in the doorway. Angry, bent on throttling, or not! Fun!

    Great job of building the tension/suspense and then throwing a twist the readers way with that last line. I doubt she is out of the woods yet, though. He sounds angry enough to make her life uncomfortable- at least until her nakedness hits him. *BG*
