Six Sentence Sunday #23

In celebration of the fact that HEARTS IN DARKNESS is newly and somewhat unexpectedly available in print, I'm going with six from this book again. Here's Caden Grayson, taking action before his inaction becomes regret:
Stalking around the back of the Jeep, he glared up at Makenna—glaring not so much at her as at his own idiocy for not making things right before the eleventh goddamned hour.
Her eyes widened. Her lips froze somewhere between a smile and an O. She pushed and held the door open for him.
And he hoped for all he was worth he was correctly reading the desire on her face.
He crowded right up into her space, pressed his body against hers—trapping her against the glass of the door behind her, plunged his hands into her hair until he was cupping the nape of her neck, and devoured her lips with his.
In further celebration of this totally awesome development, feel free to also see the previous post here, wherein I'm giving away two print books! Giveaway ends tonight at midnight EST!

Be sure to read the Other Sixers' posts and follow the #sixsunday hashtag on twitter!

Thanks for reading and commenting--I appreciate it each and every week!

I absolutely love that moment when the character stands on the brink of no return and knowingly plunges over the edge into oblivion. Wonderful!

Love how his mental doubt is so at odds with the action. Makes him sooo sympathetic. And hot. Definitely hot, too.
