Six Sentence Sunday - WIP - Unexpected News


Welcome, Sixers! Thank you so much for stopping by for my Six Sentence Sunday snippet. I realize there are a lot of authors on the Six Sentence Sunday list, so I'm doubly grateful you've taken the time to stop by mine.

Today I'm continuing my romantic suspense WIP developed from #flashfiction while I wait for my upcoming release Queen Bitch of the Callowwood Pack. This snippet about Detective Cassie Tucker and PI Jack Pierce is a little further on in the story and came from the following photo prompt. He needs a place to clean up and she hasn't had breakfast yet. She took him home and is cooking eggs while she finds out why he's shown back up in her life.


“What are you really doing here, Jack?”

“What, no pleasantries this morning, Cas? No kiss for old times’ sake?”

She tried not to crush the egg she held as she growled, “No, so just tell me why you’re here.”

“To marry you.”

The egg exploded in her fist.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that... LOL There are several favorite authors of mine on the list and a few of them are Zee Monodee, Goran Zidar, Cara Bristol, Dianne Hartsock, and Gem Sivad. Thanks so much for stopping by and happy reading! :)

  2. Lucky she was only holding his eggs! Jack's taking a lot for granted. Nice six.

  3. I nearly snorted coffee when that egg broke! Thanks for posting the blog hop badge. It looks good on black :)

    Oh...your cover for Queen Bitch...I recognized the guy. It bothered me for a moment, then I remembered! http://mariesexton.net/book-list/between-sinners-and-saints

    He was almost used for another of Marie's covers, but it didn't make the cut in the end.

  7. I was not expecting a proposal! Ah, love the exploding egg. Fun visual. Nice!

  8. LOL I don't think anyone was expecting the proposal, especially not her. Love the imagery here, I'd have broke the egg too!

  9. That's not the way to open the conversation. He should be happy she didn't throw the egg at hime instead, quickly followed by the pan she would fry it in. Can't wait to see how this is resolved.

  14. Wow that's some proposal, lol. Is the exploding egg because she wants to land one on his jaw, or kiss him, lol

  15. Great, I love this! Her reaction is superb, shown and not told, therefore it has huge dramatic effect.

  16. LMAO! There's no way this won't be a totally entertaining read with those two at it! (BTW, this reminds me of when one of my boys was about three. I was getting ready to buckle him into his car seat when I noticed his pockets bulged. When I asked what he had in his pockets, he pulled out EGGS he'd collected from the hen house. ARGH!)

  23. I have a feeling he doesn't know her as well as he thinks he does.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh. My. God! Now that's a shocker!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well, that's quite the reason, isn't it?
    Love the egg-crushing. :)
