(Informal) Weekend Writing Warriors, Feb. 10th


I’m afraid I didn’t get my act together this week in time to get a link on the official Weekend Writing Warriors page. I’ll do better next time, I promise!
In the meantime, here’s a snippet from my new novel from Entangled, Melting the Millionaire’s Heart. This is from my hero’s POV. After Ryan and his heroine, Kayla, have spent the night together, he awakens and realizes he’s in deep trouble. He must finally admit the big lie he told Kayla the night before:

His heart pounded and sweat dampened his palms. Normally he’d be tempted to do
something sweet and romantic to wake her up, like nibble her ear, or possibly something much lower, but it seemed wrong to wake her up that way when he was just going to immediately piss her off. He shook her shoulder. She moaned and rubbed an eye.
“Kayla, we need to talk.”
Immediately something in the air changed. She stopped rubbing her eye and looked at him. “That doesn’t sound promising.”

Spoiler alert: It’s not promising. Go here to read Chapter 1 or to buy. For other Weekend Writing Warriors, go here.

About Linda Morris

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.

    She’s right, the conversation doesn’t sound like it’s going to end well at all. Great snippet!
