Six more sentences From Blood Vine 12/23

Happy Holidays to everyone!

This Christmas is  especially fun for me because my debut novel’s release is right around the corner.  Fingers crossed, Blood Vine will be available Jan 8.  I hope these six sentences get you excited about the connection between Zoey and Andre.  We’re in her point of view here, the first time she tastes his mysterious wine:

She brought her glass to her mouth and glanced at Andre to find him watching. She lowered her lids and concentrated, but when the wine hit her tongue, she opened them wide again.

She ran her tongue along the back of her teeth, searching out words for the astonishing mixture of flavors in her mouth. “It’s as thick as blood…and it tastes like sunshine… and raisins, and peppery licorice.”

The flecks in his green eyes glittered. “Yes, Zoey, it does.” For the first time, he didn’t call her Ms. Porter.

And be sure to check out the other authors participating in Six Sentence Sunday at the website or on twitter at the hashtag #SixSunday.

About amber.belldene

Amber Belldene grew up on the Florida panhandle, swimming with alligators, climbing oak trees and diving for scallops…when she could pull herself away from a book. As a child, she hid her Nancy Drew novels inside the church bulletin and read mysteries during sermons—an irony that is not lost on her when she preaches these days. Amber is an Episcopal Priest and student of religion. She believes stories are the best way to explore human truths. Some people think it is strange for a minister to write romance, but it is perfectly natural to her, because the human desire for love is at the heart of every romance novel and God made people with that desire. She lives with her husband and two children in San Francisco
