Six Sentence Sunday, May 22nd

Okay, enough with the romance for now. In this scene from the WIP I’m shopping around, By Hook or By Crook, Ivy has lost her battle to keep her sister from marrying the wrong guy. The wedding has taken place, and she consoles herself that regardless of her preferences, at least the couple are really in love. The gang member holding them hostage, Ramirez, isn’t impressed with her logic:

Ramirez snorted on the other side of the room. “Please, the guy is as dumb as a goat. I wouldn’t want my sister married to him.”
Joe eyed him. “You’re some judge of character, huh? If we want to know what a henchman to a dirt-bag gangster thinks, you’ll be the first one we ask, okay?”

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.
