Six Sentence Sunday A Cowboy to Keep


Hi, everyone!
I've been gone for quite awhile, but am jumping back in with six sentenes from my just released book, A Cowboy To Keep...


        A bull snorted.
Laney froze.
Wyatt’s attention stayed with the antibiotic he was drawing into the syringe. “Ignore him, babe. He’s just talking.”
           The hairs standing straight up on the back of Laney’s neck told a different story, but she took a deep breath and tried to relax. She knew the bulls could sense her fear and, because her jumping nerves only added to their unease, she tried to calm her pounding pulse.

I love comments, and appreciate hearing what you think of my six!
Thanks!

  1. First, congratulations on your 2 releases last week!
    I love the feel and depth of your six. How she internally worked and thought about dealing with Mr. Huffy Bull. :c)
    Great six!

  2. Fun. That's a nice 6 you've got there ma'am! I love how she's so nervous and he's so calm.

    Here's a little taste of backstory from my gal Jessica in INFAMOUS:

    J.T. had been furious. Even her mother had made a rare appearance—more to grab her share of the publicity than out of any real maternal instinct.
    Mason and Susan had gotten married.
    She’d gotten therapy.
    No one had gone to jail or, worse, rehab.

  4. Been there, done that, LOL. And bulls don't "talk" until they get ready to act. Great six. I hope Wyatt has good reflexes. ;)

  9. Nice six! Bulls and their snorting, just ignore them. As much as you can ignore a one ton animal. :D

  10. “He killed me, Blake.”
    “Damn it, no, he didn't. You're right here. I'm holding you.” He kissed her with all the passion he had in him.
    “Do it again,” Kate whispered.

  14. Somehow I think I'd want a bull restrained for an antibiotic shot. HE doesn't know it's for his own good.
