Shhh! Top Secret Excerpt #SixSunday


Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday: Where writers share six sentences from their published or unpublished books.
Keely and Logan, CLOSE TO NOTHING


To celebrate the completion of my newest romantic suspense manuscript (sent it off to Beta readers this week...), here's six lines from CLOSE TO NOTHING. The first scene with the hero and heroine together. Never before seen by the public! Hope you enjoy!



    Keely froze, resisting the urge to whip her head around. She didn’t have to look up to see who stood behind her. It had been three years, but she’d recognize his voice anywhere. Logan North.
    With a racing heart, she turned slowly, determined not to show him how his presence affected her. The memory of their last kiss and his subsequent departure flashed through her mind.


Thanks for stopping by today. Please be sure to check out other
