Six Sentence Sunday - The Bone Flute - Surprise Company

Happy Six Sentence Sunday! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, and if you don't celebrate, I hope your weekend is going well. Thank you so much for visiting and taking the time to read this week's snippet. I really appreciate your time and the comments you leave for me. While my sixes aren't always right after each other, they are in chronological order. If you'd like to read last week's SSS post, it's here.

Today I'm offering another snippet from The Bone Flute, a paranormal romantic suspense. Rain met Jozsef at her office and sent him packing, thinking he was just an odd duck. A sexy odd duck, but still strange. She figured he wouldn't be back. Oops.

Sighing at the memory, Rain shook her head and rubbed her hard nipples with one hand as she closed the refrigerator door.
Then she shrieked, jumping backwards until she landed against the counter with her knife block. She grabbed the first knife she could and held it out against the figure of a tall, broad shouldered man standing just beyond the island.
He snorted at her choice of weapon and she realized she held a paring knife, but she’d make do if he thought he’d take her easy.
“Who the hell are you and what the fuck are you doing in my house?” she spat at him, her heart galloping wildly.
         He stood silently, his legs braced apart and his arms folded over his chest, and just looked at her with the same chocolate brown eyes she’d been imagining.

Talk about a heart-stopping visitor, and not necessarily in a good way. ;) There are several great authors on the Six Sentence Sunday list and a few of my favorites are Karla DoyleSarah BallanceSilver JamesLaura Kaye, and Goran Zidar. Thank you for stopping by and happy reading! :)

  2. You could do some damage with a paring knife if you know how to use it. Look at how careful the TSA is with box cutters! (Though I think they're carrying it too far with nail clippers.)

  6. Yikes, my heart would be galloping too, and I'd probably swap knives. I must have a filthy mind because The Bone Flute made me snicker in a lascivious way.

  7. My favorite bit about this is that she's ready to take care of herself. Yet another excellent six! Well done!
