First up! Aliyah Burke tagged me for this WIP (Work in Progress) challenge of Facebook. I know. I should've posted this on FB, but I'm cheating. Sue me! So it's called the 7x7x7 challenge. I have to go to page 7 of my current WIP, then go to line 7, post 7 lines as is. These lines are from the book I'm neck-deep in now that's due at the end of the month and I have no title for yet. Scene takes place at a bachelor auction...since it's a Bachelor Auction novel. My heroine, Khloe, has arrived with her best friend to find--buy--Khloe a date so she can use him to get her man! Here goes!
Trouble was, she didn’t have a great résumé where men were concerned. One had stolen a project idea from her, received a promotion as a result of her hard work then took off for a new European office, breaking up with her via a PM on Facebook.
The other? Well, the other had stolen her virginity and her heart...
Anyway, Bennett--with his genteel, warm manner, brilliance, and kindness--was her chance at a life filled with love, companionship, and stability. He wouldn't abandon her, leaving her confused and hurting.
And he definitely wouldn't break up with her on social media.
***That was eight lines...Hee-hee! Aaaand...There's a new book in the Last Chance Rescue series by Christy Reece! RUNNING ON EMPTY!! Aaaaarrrggghhh!! I can't contain myself! Can you tell? LOL!! Here's the blurb!
The Danger has begun...
Having survived a brutal childhood, Sabrina Fox believed she could handle anything. That was before she watched the love of her life die before her very eyes. Brokenhearted, her emotions on lockdown, she finds purpose and hope as an LCR Elite Operative rescuing victims from some of the most volatile places in the world.
Covert ops agent Declan Steele is used to a life of danger and deceit, but when the one person he trusted and believed in above all others sets him up, he’ll stop at nothing to make her pay. Finally rescued from his hellish prison, Declan has one priority—hunt down Sabrina Fox and exact his revenge.
Trusting no one is a lonely, perilous path. Sabrina swears she’s innocent and Declan must make a decision--trust his heart or his head. As memories of their life together returns, he realizes just how treacherous his torture had been and the target of his revenge shifts. But when Sabrina is taken, retribution is the last thing on his mind. With the assistance of Last Chance Rescue Elite, Declan races to rescue the only woman he has ever loved before it’s too late.
I can't wait to get my greedy little paws on it!! You can buy here!
Y'all have a won-der-ful Hump Day!!
