Short Excerpt Sunday

Since I’m told there isn’t a six sentence Sunday anymore and I have more than six sentences, I’m calling this Short Excerpt Sunday. Leave me a comment and be entered into the drawing for a $5 Starbucks card or a copy of Tame A Wild Bride in paperback (US only) or as an ebook. I hope you’ll leave me a comment.

Also, this is the cover reveal for my new book, CAPITAL BRIDE, coming out by Christmas. I’d love to get your opinions on it.

Sun, wind and laughter had left lines at his mouth and eyes, giving him character. His face was very pleasing with a sexy shadow of stubble on his strong jaw.

  1. Cindy, I understand Six Sentence Sunday is finishing at the end of January (unfortunately, as I have found it a great way to meet other authors).
    Love your excerpt, especially your description of the hero!

  2. What a fun excerpt! And I love “short excerpt Sunday.” Some of my author friends do a “Six Sentence Sunday” on their writing blogs, but I think I may just need to borrow your “Short Excerpt Sunday” idea for my blog, because I’m never sure what 6 sentences to share :D. Is that excerpt also from your “Capital Bride”? I do love the cover art; her gingham dress is a lovely touch.
