Six Sentence Sunday ~ January 15

Welcome back to Six Sentence Sunday! This week I’m continuing with sections from my romantic suspense, Surrender to Sanctuary, which tells the story of FBI agents Anna Parker and David Owens who go under cover in an adult (BDSM) club to solve a murder.

Last week we saw David Owens taking a peek at Anna’s physical attributes. This week, I’d like to share Anna’s first good inspection of David. She’s trying to be a professional, trying not to let his good looks get in the way of her focus on the case. But sometimes things are just easier said than done…


Objectivity was difficult, though, when the man in question was as legendary for his conquests in the bedroom as he was for his successes in the field. Even so, she had to admit, a woman would have to be frozen, or dead, not to be attracted.

Tall and muscular, but not grotesquely so, he had the kind of body that would class up a tuxedo and a face that could have been sketched by the ad people on Madison Avenue.  Dark, nearly curly hair waved at his temples and curled just over the edge of his jacket, begging for some helpless woman to run her fingers through in a moment of sensual abandon.

It was a good look, she decided, one that fit the Casanova reputation, at least according to the women she’d overheard giggling in the ladies’ room a few months back. They’d claimed his eyes turned bluer when he was…in the act. 

Hope you all enjoyed my six this week! And I hope you have a chance to check out all the great samples at Six Sentence Sunday!
