Six Sentence Sunday, Jan. 27th

Welcome to the final Six Sentence Sunday. Hopefully the tradition is not totally behind us, and we’ll find some way to keep hanging out together, at least informally. Without further ado, here’s my final excerpt from my new sexy romantic comedy from Entangled, Melting the Millionaire’s Heart. Kayla, our heroine, is telling our hero about the humiliating news she’s just heard. Her ex-boyfriend, a coworker at the special-needs school where she teaches, has just married his new girlfriend Eve, also a coworker there:

“Six months after he broke up with me, and after he kept telling me he didn’t see marriage in his future! And did I tell you that he broke up with me at the school, during the Fitness Fun-a-Thon fundraising event we worked at?” Her face grew reflective. “I was handing out
bottled water when he asked me to go behind the hydration station so he could talk to me privately. The whole time, Eve kept staring at us from the finish line of the three-legged race. She knew I was getting dumped before I did.”

    That is so uncool. The only consolation is, if he’d do it to her, he’d do it to Eve. Great tension, love the insight into the character, and what her Achilles heel is. I’ve enjoyed reading your snippets on the SSS meme, Linda. Thanks for the friendship and the loyal support, and here’s wishing you all the best in 2013!!
