Eight Sentence Sunday-"Rain is a Love Song" by Vonnie Davis

Today I'm sharing a snippet from book two of my romantic suspense series: Rain is a Love Song. Please note this title will be a FREE download on Amazon this week, starting on Tuesday. I hope you'll snag your free copy.
 
The following scene takes place in Paris. French counterterrorism agent, Jean-Luc has just been called to a murder scene. He has Gwen, a crime scene reporter from Asheville, NC, in the car with him. She wants to photograph the scene. He tells her she's not permitted. They've been arguing about this and a few other things, so both the heroine and hero's nerves are frayed...
 
Gwen hiked her chin in that pugnacious way she had. “I thought you were smart enough to see a fresh set of eyes might help. Maybe if I were a man…”

His hand fisted in her hair, and he dragged her to him, their faces a mere inch apart. “I wish to hell you were a man. I’d slug you.”
 
She rolled her eyes and started muttering under her breath again. Something about how she wished he’d try and how great he’d look with his foot broken off and shoved up his ass.

FREE from Tuesday to Saturday, April 16-20th.

That was a surprise. Wasn't expecting that end for your 8 lines. lol Memorable that's for sure. I'll be thinking of it all night. Why such thoughts, I'll have to read further. Great post.

Linda Morris said...

Thanks, J. Rose, these two were so much fun to write. I merely took dictation as they sparred.

Joanne Stewart said...

hahaha. You have the most wonderful feisty heroines, Vonnie. Love it!

Vonnie Davis ~ Romance Author said...

Michael, thanks for popping in. When two people are both control freaks, neither wants to give an inch, but watching them come to grips with their feelings can be such fun.

Vonnie Davis ~ Romance Author said...

Linda, RAIN IS A LOVE SONG is full of fireworks and sizzle and fear of a terrorist group bent on destroying lives.

Vonnie Davis ~ Romance Author said...

Thanks, Karen. I love creating tension between two people coming to care for each other.

Vonnie Davis ~ Romance Author said...

Veronica, you are soooo right. Of course it takes them many rounds of verbal sparring to reach that conclusion.

Vonnie Davis ~ Romance Author said...

No whimpy heroines for me, Joanne. I was once whimpy myself and learned to grow a backbone as a matter of survival.
