Six Sentence Sunday – 1/27/13

header

Welcome to #SixSunday! I can’t believe this is the last official SixSunday! I want to say how much I’ve enjoyed it, and I really, truly know that I would not be the same writer without having participated with you guys. You gave me confidence when I needed it, some of you have become Beta partners I couldn’t do without, and more have become auto-buys for me, thus enriching my life. I’ve learned much. Thank you.

I did my first post on November 20, 2011 with a snippet from MUST LOVE BREECHES, my time travel romance, and have come to treasure Sundays and my time with you ever since!

I will continue to post these on my own every Sunday, and will keep an eye out on Twitter for others using the same hashtag… UPDATE: Karysa Faire has started a Six Sentence Sunday FB Group!

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. He came back from getting bottles of beer and hovered behind her, and she leaned against him. Their beer bottles came into play. Picking up exactly where we left off last week when she leaps onto him, they thud into the French doors, and they stumble inside:

She fumbled with the buttons on his shirt, jerked the shirttails out of his khakis, and pushed his shirt off his shoulders.

Wow, was he ripped! His arm muscles bunched from holding her. Hoo boy, there might even be an ab or two peeking out. She slid her hands up his smooth chest as he backed her to the king-size bed. He tumbled with her onto the fluffy comforter, and they both laughed.

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. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to meet you and your writing through the SSS blog hop. Every single week I look forward to your snippets. Which reminds me, I love the fact that in addition to being really hot, Riley also has a sense of humor.

  5. LIke the way her voice comes through the description of him.

  6. One of my favorite parts about your snippets is her POV. She’s kind of a “regular gal” that we can relate to, especially once she decides she’s gonna get the guy. 🙂 Thanks for sharing these bits, I’ve enjoyed following along.

  10. Oh boy indeed! I love where this is going! I’ll miss your stories, but thought you’d like to know that I’ve officially joined RWA and registered for the annual conference. Hope to see you there perhaps or somewhere on their loop. Take care and all the best in 2013!

  11. Very nice final six! She’s gotten really lucky with this guy.

  12. I love the idea of possible abs. A ripped eight-pack is so unrealistic unless the hero is a porn star 🙂 Lovely six. I’ll look out for your #sixsunday tag

  13. Great six! I love the whole tone of this piece…sexy, sweet and fun.

  19. Love this line! “Hoo boy, there might even be an ab or two peeking out.” I can see her taking a peek.

  20. Downloaded a copy from ARe just now! Can’t wait to read the whole thing. I always enjoy your snippets and feel so blessed that we met here on the SSS meme! I hope you sell loads of copies and hurry up and get the other two works out for sale soon!!

  21. I remember reading this snippet, the happiness was so bright and warm. Loved it then and I love it now.
    Thank you, Angela, for being a great friend to me on these Sundays. You’ve helped me several times and on each occasion it has encouraged me to listen to my instincts. I’ll never forget your kindness.

  22. Great post today. Sexy but I mostly love the laugh at the end. Thanks for sharing your work. I’ve always enjoyed stopping by. 🙂

  23. The inner monologue intruding was the perfect twist of humor to this sexy moment. Great last official six. I’ll certainly be back.

    So glad to have met you and got a chance to read your work!

  24. Fantastic six as always. Who would have thought a nerd had abs? LOL Such a lucky surprise! Going to miss this on Sundays. But I hope we keep in touch. I’ll be in Atlanta–hope to meet you and a lot of Sixers there.

  25. Peeking abs…you can’t go wrong there. Thanks for being so welcoming when I started SSS – i think you were one of the first people to comment on my posts. I know it’s not the end and I’ll definitely see you on the other side!

    Reply
  26. Good to see the geekly stereotypes are breaking down. These two really found something and are enjoying the exploring. 🙂

    Reply
  27. Love that they are laughing. Laugher and arousal is such a potent combination! I’ll be doing the new Six Sunday list that Skye Warren is hosting. Hope to catch you there!

  28. I love this book almost as much as Breeches. Almost! 😀

    Reply
  29. I’ve read this now, but I always enjoy your snippets. I’m following, but I’ll also try either Skye’s or Weekend Warriors. Sighed up for both right now.

    Reply
  30. Oh yes, I remember that part well. 🙂

    Thank you for introducing me to Six Sentence Sundays. Of course you and I go back farther than that, but I never would have known about SSS if not for you, Angela. You can bet I’ll keep hanging around.

    P.S. I’m hoping to get the Lounge up and running again (maybe a fool’s errand but I love nostalgia), so if you find yourself needing a place to visit on Sundays…

  31. Fun six! I always enjoy your post. See you on twitter and I’ll be back for more. Best of luck!

  32. I love this — I laughed at the “hoo boy” part. And I’m so glad I found you on SSS. It’s been great getting to know you and beta read with you. Lots of wonderful reasons to want to keep all of it going. 🙂

  33. Great six, as always, Angela! I’ve enjoyed reading your snippets each week and am happy to discover you’ll be continuing to post! 🙂

  35. I love the contrast of his ripped body and their eventual flop onto the comforter. Make a great visual awesome!

    Reply
  36. OK, I could have sworn I replied to this…I know exactly what I wrote and everything: I love the humor that’s braided in. I always enjoy your characters’ inner monologue. So true to life!

  37. This six left me with a huge smile. So much FUN! (And more to come, no doubt. LOL!)
