BDSM FBI Jersey Shore murder romantic suspense Six Sentence Sunday Surrender to Sanctuary Washington DC

Six Sentence Sunday ~ January 22

Good morning and happy Six Sentence Sunday to all! If you’re new to this game, it’s where authors get to share six sentences from a story. The book/story doesn’t have to be currently published, but the selection must be exactly six sentences.

I’d like to continue this week with romantic suspense Surrender to Sanctuary, which tells the story of FBI Agents Anna Parker and David Owens who go under cover in a BDSM club to solve a murder. This week’s six takes a peek at their growing interest in each other. Hope you enjoy!

Please make sure you hop over toΒ Six Sentence Sunday to check out some amazing authors!

  1. Thanks, Karla. Yes, I live vicariously through my characters. In real life I’d probably drop the food (most probably something dripping in the tomato sauce) down my white silk blouse…something like that. I’m a terrible clutz. πŸ™‚
