Six Sentence Sunday – Fool’s Gold pt 2 #sixsunday

Six Sentence Sunday is here again! As always, a big thank you to the peeps behind this wonderful initiative, and to all the lovely people who comment on my sentences 😀

Just like last week, it’s another six from FOOL’S GOLD, second in the Diamond series. Pearl and Ethan continue their shenanigans from last time, with Ethan revealing something of why he pounded on the Diamond’s doors just as a blizzard’s about to roar into town.

“And I was your first choice, was I?” Pearl said.

A kind of blankness fell over Garrett, sudden-like. “I had nowhere else to go.”

Why should she be feeling a tug at her heart just because he had nowhere to go?

Squaring her shoulders, she lifted a brow and pretended her heart never twinged. “If it will get you to depart this here premises the quicker, why don’t you tell me all your troubles and we’ll see if we can’t fix one or two of them?”

Thanks for stopping by, peeps! Please keep coming back for updates on FOOL’S GOLD’s progress!
 


 

Six Sentence Sunday – Fool’s Gold #sixsunday

After another break, I’m back with Six Sentence Sunday! As always, a big thank you to the peeps behind this wonderful initiative, and to all the lovely people who comment on my sentences 😀

So, I don’t know if you peeps know, but I’ve a new book coming out! A sequel to ROUGH DIAMOND, FOOL’S GOLD features secondary characters Pearl and Garrett. They don’t get on at all, but when they’re stuck in the Diamond Saloon on Christmas Eve as a blizzard storms in, well, shenanigans ensue.

Here, Pearl thinks she’ll be getting a night to herself, but instead, there’s a pounding at the Diamond’s door…

The pounding began again, the doors trembling under the force of the knock. Hell and tarnation, she couldn’t leave the poor soul out there to freeze.

Resigning herself to the loss of alone time, she strode across the saloon’s floor and arranged a smile of welcome across her features as she unbolted the door and swung it wide.

Framed in the opening, his hat jammed tight on his head and the collar of his duster turned against the cold, stood Ethan Garrett.

Her smile died. Out of all the population of Freewill, why did it have to be him?

Thanks for stopping by, peeps! And please keep coming back for updates on FOOL’S GOLD’s progress!

Straightening, she held out her wrist. “Would you unbutton me?”

He said nothing as he complied. God, this reminded her of the alley, and him removing her glove oh-so-slowly.

“Other wrist.” His voice was hoarse.

Six Sentence Sunday – Rough Diamond, the release edition! #sixsunday


 
After a bit of a break, I’m back with Six Sentence Sunday , and am super excited because ROUGH DIAMOND is now available!

In honour of this awesomeness, here’s six sentences from ROUGH DIAMOND. Thanks, as always, to the peeps behind this wonderful initiative, and to all the lovely people who comment on my sentences 😀

The man who wanted to buy her saloon occupied a table all to himself, watching the roulette wheel as he toyed with the whiskey before him. Though the table regularly sat four, none had joined him, and it looked as if none would. He seemed to suffer no injury from their disinterest, merely continuing to observe the roulette wheel, the lamp set upon his table lighting a foolish grin on his face.

Leaning on the balcony’s wooden balustrade, Alice watched him. For over half an hour, Llewellyn had sat at his table and played with his whiskey, raising it to his lips every so often but not drinking a drop. Instead, his avid gaze took in the activity surrounding him, and his eyes sharpened every now and then as if he were noting something in that empty head of his.

 
Rough Diamond by Cassandra Dean Western Escape Decadent Publishing

Owner of the Diamond Saloon and Theater, Alice Reynolds is astounded when a fancy Englishman offers to buy her saloon. She won’t be selling her saloon to anyone, let alone a man with a pretty, empty-headed grin…but then, she reckons that grin just might be a lie, and a man of intelligence and cunning resides beneath.

Rupert Llewellyn has another purpose for offering to buy the pretty widow’s saloon—the coal buried deep in land she owns. However, he never banked on her knowing eyes making him weak at the knees, or how his deception would burn upon his soul.

Each determined to outwit the other, they tantalize and tease until passion explodes. But can their desire bridge the lies told and trust broken?

Six Sentence Sunday – WTF 2: The Reckoning #sixsunday

Six Sentence Sunday is here again, peeps! As always, a big thank you to the peeps behind this wonderful initiative, and to all the lovely people who comment on my sentences 😀

So this week, it’s WTF 2: The Reckoning! Awesome title, hey?

A follow up to ROUGH DIAMOND, WTF 2: The Reckoning features secondary characters Pearl (Red) and Ethan. Hope you enjoy!

Ethan strode into the saloon and threw his hat on the counter. “Red, put me out of my misery, make an honest man of me, and marry me.”

Pearl looked at his hat, and then at him. “Whiskey?”

Exhaling, he cast his gaze to the heavens. “I thought that one would work…Ah well, maybe tomorrow.”

…Man, I hope I get to keep that title. Probably not, though. Some people have no taste *sniff*

Six Sentence Sunday – Rough Diamond pt nineteenlicketytoo #sixsunday

Six Sentence Sunday, peeps! Yay! As always, a big thank you to the peeps behind this wonderful initiative, and to all the lovely people who comment on my sentences.

Because I’m on an editing roll, again another six from ROUGH DIAMOND! I hope you enjoy 😀

Rocking back on her heels, Alice swept her tongue over her lips to taste him. A low groan drew her attention, and she found Llewellyn watching her, eyes hot as he stared at her mouth. Blood thrumming, she licked her lips again. His expression turned pained, his hands clenching at his sides.

In an explosion of motion, she pulled him to her even as he tugged her to him. Their mouths collided, and the taste of him exploded in her mouth, better than any whiskey she’d ever savored.

Thanks for stopping by, peeps!

Six Sentence Sunday – Rough Diamond pt whatever #sixsunday

Six Sentence Sunday is here again, peeps! As always, a big thank you to the peeps behind this wonderful initiative, and to all the lovely people who comment on my sentences 😀

So, because I’m editing ROUGH DIAMOND, I thought I might do a little snippet from that. Actually, the below is the first six sentences of the story! I hope you enjoy 😀

A knock sounded at the closed door, a brief hesitation followed by two firmer knocks, and finally a group of three that seemed more flourish than a signal of a man’s presence.

Regarding the door, Alice didn’t immediately rise to answer the summons. A lot could be learned from a man’s knock, and even more from his reaction to waiting a spell. From this particular man, she could tell he was unsure of his welcome, but sought to cover such worry with brashness. Then, probably to be cocky about it all, he added the last flurry. From what little she knew of her visitor, such a knock described him to a tee.

Thanks for stopping by, peeps!

Falling silent, he ran his gaze over her.

She felt beautiful as his eyes caressed her form, as he devoured her barely covered breasts, the way the wine-red corset cinched her waist, the lacy cream under-drawers. Slowly, she made her way to stand before him. His hand rose to her hip, gently tracing the curve. With a smile that spoke of her intentions, she lowered herself into his lap. The hand at her hip fell upon her thigh and he tangled his fingers in her garters.
