Six Sentence Sunday--Into the Fire

It's coming soon, so I'm going to be giving six sentence snippets from Into the Fire, my short story with The Wild Rose Press.  Looks like October 5, 2011 is the publication date, so my excitement is building like an adolescent shaking a soda pop (I teach this age; I would know).

“I honestly don’t want to hear any explanation from
you now or ever, but if I win? Which I will, of
course.”


“Then I’ll leave it up to you. If you want me to
walk away, I will.” He took a step closer, placed his
hand on her shoulder, and leaned down, his mouth
right next to her ear. “But if you want me to call you
darling, sweetheart, and sugar cheeks all night long,
I’ll do that too.”

Here's a little more information about Into the Fire:


Months after he stole her affections—then her executive chef position—Shyann and Luke meet again under sizzling circumstances, competing head-to-head on a televised cooking show called Kitchen Twist. Each arrives with a motive: Luke intends to win back Shyann’s heart, even as she wants closure on the not-so-tasty heartbreak he once served up.

Luke knows culinary masterpieces require a delicate touch, but that knowledge is tossed out with the leftovers as he works to show Shyann he’s not such a bad guy. Now he pushes his skills to the limit to win the competition and satisfy a bet.

Can two top chefs resist each other as they move out of the pan and into the fire?

Happy Writing!

LOL! I had the opposite reaction to Piper's; I'd fillet the guy for calling me Sugar Cheeks!

Congrats on getting this published! ...though I think I'd slap a guy for calling me 'sugar cheeks'

Gem Sivad said...

He sure knows how to make a woman smile. I'd take the second option. I hope she does too. :)

Cherie Marks said...

Ha-Ha! The heroine didn't like being called 'sugar cheeks.' It riled her up, honestly. That scene came before this one.
