Weekend Writing Warriors

For the first time, I'm participating in the Weekend Writing Warriors. Here are eight sentences from The Seduction of Esther. This is when the heroine, Samara, first meets (and literally runs into) the hero, Nathaniel.

Slate-blue eyes twinkled at her. She yanked her arm out of his grasp.
“Let go of me, please!”
“Sorry, didn’t want you to run
me over.”
She tilted her head--did his eyes always twinkle this much?
was sure she’d never seen him before; his eyes alone would have been enough to spark
a glimmer of recognition if they’d ever crossed paths.
And his voice? His voice was unforgettable. 

The Seduction of Esther is available now through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, AllRomance and Bookstrand. Let me know what you think!

Check out the other participating authors here.
