Mystically Sexy Romance…because Desire is Divine

Six Sentence Sunday–Dec 9

Here’s another six sentences from Blood Vine, which releases Jan 8.  Today we’re in my heroine Zoey’s point of view just before she journeys to Andre’s winery to begin his P.R. project.  

After a shower, Zoey stood before the mirror on her closet door, wrapped in her towel, and looked closely at her face. Thirty-one, and it showed in the laugh lines at the edges of her eyes, from all the laughing she didn’t do, and the tiny creases around her mouth.

She didn’t mind–they were a badge of honor.

I’ve survived. Four years alone, and no more visits to the hospital, to boot.

If those signs of age and an ill-advised affair were the worst she had to show, then she was going to kick thirty-one’s ass.

Come back next week to read six sentences from Zoey’s arrival scene. 

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