Six Sentence Sunday, Beneath The Surface


Welcome to this week's six sentences. I'm excited to share the first six sentences of my debut romantic suspense, 
Beneath the Surface.  


 


 A deafening roar ripped through the air and a gust of heat whirled from the ocean, shaking the wooden dock under Brooke’s feet, hurling her forward. She threw her arms out and grabbed the railing in time to break her fall. The acrid smell of burning oil filled her nostrils, making it hard to breathe. Specks of glowing red embers fluttered around her in slow motion.
   Her heart pumped hard against her ribs. What the hell just happened?
