Six Sentence Sunday – 1/13/13

header

Welcome to #SixSunday!

Today’s Six Sunday I’m continuing with my new release, BEER AND GROPING IN LAS VEGAS now available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble,  ARe, and Bookstrand!!

This is in the heroine’s POV and they’ve now moved up to her hotel suite. We’re picking up several sentences from where we left off last week. He came back from getting bottles of beer and hovered behind her, and she leaned against him. Their beer bottles came into play. Skipping a paragraph from where we left off last week when Riley has just said he wants her so bad he can’t stand it. What we’re skipping is her boldly replying ‘what are we waiting for’ and then him spinning her around. She sees his vulnerable look in his eyes and reacts:

She vaulted into his arms and twined her legs around his waist. He stumbled back and gripped her butt, pressing her tight against his erection. She moved her hips. Yes, right…there. He captured her mouth in a searing kiss, his tongue skillfully stroking hers, mimicking the rhythm she couldn’t wait to do with him soon.

He backed up until they hit the French doors with a thud.

Also, I’m competing in the preditors & editors poll in the romance short story category, so if you don’t already have a favorite, I’d love your vote! Or some tags on Amazon, especially the ‘romantic comedy’ tag 🙂 Thanks! Mwah!

I got a great review on Penelope’s Romance Reviews this past week! She actually did a beer pairing to sip while reading the story!!

Official blurb:

Can a djinn and a magic slot machine bring two geeks together?

Riley McGregor is a geek trapped in a Good Ole Boy body and as owner of a microbrewery, smart chicks never look at him twice.

Rejected by a geek who wanted to “trade up,” Mirjam Linna would rather immerse herself in work than be the girlfriend-of-the-moment. Stranded in a Vegas hotel, she makes a wish—a night of hot sex with the man of her dreams. It’s granted. She agrees to dinner, but afterward, she’ll say thanks, but no thanks, and see what’s on the SyFy channel. But when they meet, they’re surprised to find they had a shared connection in their past. Sparks fly as these two learn to be in the moment, be themselves and find love.

Fans of Star Trek, Star Wars, Monty Python, Firefly and Marvin the Martian will enjoy this romantic comedy.

  2. The last time I backed up into a french door (though innate clumsiness instead of a Riley, darn it), I broke a window with my elbow. I’m glad your characters are having more fun! 😀

  18. BGLV was fantastic! I read it last week, just haven’t had a chance to post a review (yet). I think I laughed out loud when I read this scene–could totally visualize her vaulting into his arms!
