Six Sentence Sunday #10


RELEASES IN 3 DAYS ON 4/20!!!
This is an especially exciting Six Sunday for me because it's the last Sunday before my first ever release date! That's right, today we're back to HEARTS IN DARKNESS in celebration of the release of my debut novella.  So, why don't we see our hero, Caden Grayson, for the very first time through the eyes of heroine Makenna James:


She couldn’t stop trembling, her body unexpectedly flooded with adrenaline as she drank Caden in through her final sense.
He was … Oh my God! ... so damn rugged and … masculine … and just … darkly beautiful.
The enticing angle of his jaw combined with full lips, high cheekbones and a strong brow framing intense brown eyes with impossibly long eyelashes. His shaved dark brown hair came to a widow’s peak in the center of his forehead. Two small silver loops embraced the left side of his bottom lip and a black metal barbell pierced his right eyebrow. He had a face that, with a certain set of his jaw and eyes, could easily appear harsh, intimidating, but she knew he was neither.
Wanna see my inspiration for Caden???
I mean. Unf. Seriously. LOL

Okay, y'all, be sure to read the other Sixers' excerpts and follow along with the #sixsunday hashtag on Twitter! Please consider leaving a comment--I always love your feedback and reactions!

If you hear major squeeage on Wednesday, that's probably just me! :)

Thanks for reading,
Laura
