Happy Sunday! If you would like to catch more talented authors, check out Six Sentence Sunday.
Also check out my paranormal alter ego, Cera duBois for six sentences and a glimps of the cover of my upcoming paranormal release, A Hunter’s Blade (book 2 of The Hunter’s Dagger Series)
This is from Chapter 2 of my January release, Gambling On A Secret. (This was edited just a little to fit within the 6 sentence limit)
After sliding into the booth, he didn’t have to wait long for Ella’s younger sister, Julie, to come forward with a bottle of his usual.
He’d thrown back a couple shots of Jack Daniels when a group of college kids shoved into the booth across from him. He didn’t need this crap. Looking around, he found an empty spot at the bar and reached for his bottle.
Blondie next to Birthday Boy said, “Guess what Charli Monroe’s doing tonight.”
He slid a sideways glance at the table of kids, set the bottle down and stayed glued to the cracked vinyl.
When Charli bets everything on a secret, will she find the deck stacked against her?
Former runaway-turned heiress Charli Monroe is hiding her sordid past and planning a future in Colton, Texas. Attending the local college for a degree in social work, she intends to raise cattle on her newly purchased ranch, which she plans to open as a home for troubled teens. Only a few glitches—the Victorian mansion is crumbling, the barn needs a roof, and her oilman neighbor wants more than friendship. When she meets Dylan Quinn, Charli is willing to take a chance on the town drunk to help her rebuild the rundown ranch.
Dylan has his demons, too. The former Special Forces commander can’t get past his ex-wife’s betrayal and the botched mission that left him with much more than a bad limp. Certain the greedy oilman next door to Charli wants much more than just her heart, Dylan’s even willing to stop drinking in order to protect her.
When things get dangerous and secrets of the past are revealed, is he only looking out for his new employer, or is she the new start he so desperately needs?
