Six Sentence Sunday, Apr. 2nd

Okay, we had some heavy stuff last week. This week, a little fun. Here’s another snippet from my western WIP, Nobody’s Bride. Our heroine, Maddy, notices that William, our troubled Civil War vet, has a button missing from his shirt:

“Let me fix it,” she heard herself saying. “Rufus had a sewing kit in the wagon.”
“Don’t worry about it—some things, you just can’t fix.” 
Her eyes swerved away from the enticing sight of his bare belly up to his face.
“That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try,” she said softly. 
“As long as you don’t get your hopes dashed when the fix doesn’t take.”

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.
