Six Sentence Sunday #31 - #NorthofNeed! #EntangledBooks!

I can't believe it's just over two weeks until the release of NORTH OF NEED - Book 1 in the Hearts of the Anemoi series! So, pull up a blanket and a mug of hot chocolate, and enjoy six from North of Need...
Breathing hard, Megan staggered to her feet and studied her afternoon’s labor with her hands on her hips.

She’d made a snow family.

A snow family. A snowman, a snow woman, and a snow child.

A sob tore up her throat and echoed into the stillness. What the hell was she thinking?

...an unconscious with/desire?

She would have had to be pretty out of it to do that much work before reacting... so I wonder how her emotional state is.
