Six Sentence Sunday – 12/11/11

Today is #sixsunday where writers share six sentences from their work. I’ll share a snippet from my time-travel romance WIP. I currently have this out to Beta readers for feedback and hope to be in a position to query for agents in the new year. Here’s my working query hook for it: Isabelle Rochon has met the man of her dreams. There’s only one problem: he lives in a different century. 

This is in the first chapter and she’s at a reenactment ball, but everyone’s starting to be a little too into it. She’s just met the hero (this occurs a couple of paragraphs before last week’s six. You can see the other entries here):

My God, what gorgeous hair! His long, black, wavy hair caressed his shirt collar, making her want to rummage her fingers through it, frolic in it, actually.

Like Ada, this guy had gotten into it, too.

And, really, he seemed to be in his element. He’d grown sideburns and his prominent chin had that little indentation she always found sexy. Could she nibble on it?

To see snippets from others who are participating or to sign up yourself, visit here. Other participants who write time travel are Gayle Ramage, Ryan Derham and Jasmine Aherne.

Have a great Sunday!

    Nice snippet. I bet he’d like it if she did give it a little nibble!

    I like how the narrator course corrects in the second line and sounds almost innocent in the last one. As if she was a little bit shy about her thoughts but diving right into them nonetheless.

    This made me chuckle. I love your heroine’s (I assume) voice. Great six!

    Love your working query hook! Time travel is something I always love reading, but can’t write to save my life. Love your six too. ^_^

    Thanks for the trackback! Maybe we could swap blog posts sometime?

    This is such a fun six! I LOVE the frolic and the nibble. Sounds like a FABULOUS time to me! LOL.

    It’s always interesting to read what women find sexy in men. Maybe I should read more romance.

  16. Hailey Edwards December 13, 2011 at 12:36 am #

    Ah. A fellow nibbler. I like it. 😉

  17. pippajay December 13, 2011 at 7:58 am #

    That’s a fun six. Love the description of his hair – had my fingers itching to do the same. :)
