A little bit wrong for Six Sentence Sunday

Thanks, as always, to those who stop by each week! Your comments really mean a lot.

This week I'm switching to my contemporary interracial erotic romance, Just the Right Amount of Wrong, just released on Amazon and Smashwords - yay! To set this up, Sara Mullaney's putting together a business plan to help local farmers. In high school, she'd been in love with Ravelo Pena, who her parents said was all wrong for her. Until she can launch her business, she's working as a restaurant server, and gets a surprise one night:

Mierda santa,” murmured a man, who quickly added more loudly, “I did.”
The familiar deep voice wound down her spine. She froze when she met the dark stare of Ravelo Pena. That stare – like black diamonds – always cut her to the core. Especially at close range. She completely agreed with his first statement: holy shit.


Check out the fantastic Six Sentence Sunday authors here! Have a great Sunday!
