Six Sentence Sunday #21! + Treasure Hunt Winners!

Happy Sunday, everyone! Can you believe it's the last day of July? Where the heck is the summer going? *grins* In celebration of my (thanks to all of you!) hugely successful Treasure Hunt Giveaway, I'm returning to six sentences from my contemporary romance, Hearts in Darkness:
          Saving them the awkward conversation, Makenna flopped her right arm out on the bed and pointed to her night stand. “Drawer. Condom. On you. Now.”
            “Mmm, yes, ma’am,” he said with a grin as he pushed himself into a standing position and kicked off the jeans which still hung around his knees.
Aw, man, I just love these two! Love revisiting them, and I hope you do, too!

Okay, be sure to read the Other Sixers' Posts and follow the #sixsunday hashtag on Twitter.
