Six Sentence Sunday

December 9, 2012

It is the holiday season once more! I don’t know about y’all, but I haven’t done any shopping yet. Good thing there are still fifteen days until Christmas.

To celebrate this most wonderful time of the year, here are the opening six sentences to my Christmas Quickie, Santa’s Sleeping Beauty.

Macy’s was a madhouse. Of course it was, it was eleven p.m. on Christmas Eve and every last-minute-shopping, deal-saving-hoping, lazy-slacker procrastinator in New York City was out trying to buy whatever they could, as fast as they could, preferably at a discount.

Jordan blew her long, blonde bangs out of her eyes as she wove her way through the other shoppers toward the cafe. She needed a break. A cup of coffee. A shot of bourbon would be better, but the Bar & Grill was closed, and leaving the store was not an option.


Be sure to stop by the OFFICIAL SITE for all of this week’s snippets!

    I absolutely love this sexy story! 🙂

    But I hate crowds, so I’ve already finished most of my shopping. Online. LOL

    Nice six! I love (and sympathize with) her need for a shot of bourbon.

    Bah. Humbug on the shopping. You go, girl, on the coffee. Where’s that sexy Santa when you need him? Hoping he shows up soon!

    Fun excerpt and wow, can I relate to how she’s feeling in the crowds!

    Excellent six! We all know that feeling. 🙂

    or bourbon in the coffee, lol. I hope her night gets better 😉 Love the pic, just looking at that made my morning better. I hate the crowds too, shopping on-line is the only way to go.

    Love your description of the last-minute shoppers!

    Oh God – that’s going to be me! But, I think she’s going to find something better than bourbon…
