Six Sentence Sunday, May 20th

Another tidbit from my contemporary, By Hook or By Crook. Joe and Ivy wagered on a game of pool. When she won, she got to claim her prize: dancing together to the old Aaron Neville tune,  “Tell It Like It Is.” In this scene, they’re on the dance floor of a tiny bar and the sexual tension is rising.

“You should tell it like it is, Ivy.” She could barely hear his hoarse voice over the music, but she understood him loud and clear. “Do you want me?”
His honest question demanded an honest answer. She swallowed and decided to be braver than she felt. “You know that I do,” she returned, unable to look away.

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.
