Six Sentence Sunday – 1/6/13


Welcome to #SixSunday!

Today’s Six Sunday I’m continuing with my new release, BEER AND GROPING IN LAS VEGAS now available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble,  ARe, and Bookstrand!!

This is in the heroine’s POV and they’ve now moved up to her hotel suite. We’re picking up several sentences from where we left off last week. He came back from getting bottles of beer and hovered behind her, and she leaned against him. Their beer bottles came into play. Picking up exactly where we left off last week:

Obviously running with her response, he grabbed the other bottle, trailed it along her neck and slowly down to her breast, circling. Impossibly, her nipples tightened more.

“Riley.” Was that her voice? It came out all sultry.

“God, Mirjam, I want you so bad I can’t stand it.”

I’m also available for guest posts, so if any of you have slots available on your blog for hosting me, I’d love to be a guest :) Just shoot me an email at angela [at] angelaquarles [dot] com

Also, I’m competing in the preditors & editors poll in the romance short story category, so if you don’t already have a favorite, I’d love your vote!

Official blurb:

Can a djinn and a magic slot machine bring two geeks together?

Riley McGregor is a geek trapped in a Good Ole Boy body and as owner of a microbrewery, smart chicks never look at him twice.

Rejected by a geek who wanted to “trade up,” Mirjam Linna would rather immerse herself in work than be the girlfriend-of-the-moment. Stranded in a Vegas hotel, she makes a wish—a night of hot sex with the man of her dreams. It’s granted. She agrees to dinner, but afterward, she’ll say thanks, but no thanks, and see what’s on the SyFy channel. But when they meet, they’re surprised to find they had a shared connection in their past. Sparks fly as these two learn to be in the moment, be themselves and find love.

Fans of Star Trek, Star Wars, Monty Python, Firefly and Marvin the Martian will enjoy this romantic comedy.

  14. Sarah W January 6, 2013 at 11:55 am #

    I read this book in two sittings instead of one, but only because I have a kid who can’t quite pour a glass of milk from a half-gallon jug by herself, but tried anyway. This scene is one of my favorite parts!

  15. veronicascott January 6, 2013 at 11:57 am #

    The foreplay here is really intense and sensuous! Hope the book does really well…great six!

  16. Eleri Stone January 6, 2013 at 12:04 pm #

    Hot! Wonderful tension:)

  17. Jessica Knauss January 6, 2013 at 12:20 pm #

    Very exciting. How do you think of this stuff?

  18. Elin Gregory January 6, 2013 at 12:39 pm #

    Now was that bottle frosty cold or was she getting all het up? Fun six. :)

  19. Karysa Faire January 6, 2013 at 1:00 pm #

    So very hot!

  20. Carrie-Anne January 6, 2013 at 1:10 pm #

    Very hot scene! I love the use of the cold beer bottles.

  21. Taryn Kincaid January 6, 2013 at 1:11 pm #

    Nice foreplay!

  22. sueannbowlingauthor January 6, 2013 at 1:26 pm #

    Sounds like she’s getting her wish.

  23. sueannbowlingauthor January 6, 2013 at 1:30 pm #

    P.S. I just ordered it for my Nook. May get back on guest slot after I’ve read it.

  24. Paula Martin January 6, 2013 at 1:31 pm #

    Great use for the beer bottles!

  25. Gem January 6, 2013 at 1:39 pm #

    Visual tease and lots of tension. Great six!

  26. gzidar January 6, 2013 at 2:00 pm #

    All I could think of was I hope he took the lid off the beer bottle before running it down her skin :-) Thanks for sharing more of this.

  27. Sandra Sookoo January 6, 2013 at 2:32 pm #

    Hot scene and wonderful cover!

  28. Amy Durham January 6, 2013 at 2:33 pm #

    Such vivid detail and sensuality! Great job!

  29. Joanne Stewart January 6, 2013 at 2:45 pm #

    Very sensual!

  30. Kate Warren January 6, 2013 at 2:49 pm #

    Surprised the cold/heat contrast isn’t creating steam. Or is it? I may have to reread that scene.

  31. Catherine Lawrence January 6, 2013 at 3:02 pm #

    Oh, this is great! Congratulations on the new release – it sounds sexy and funny. And I can’t wait ’til you’re ready to share experts of “Not Another Darcy” :)

  32. Sara Hubbard January 6, 2013 at 3:10 pm #

    Very hot! Great teaser.

  33. Dana January 6, 2013 at 3:48 pm #

    I’m pretty sure I’ve never read anything that sexy involving beer. Awesome. :)

  34. s e gilchrist January 6, 2013 at 3:56 pm #

    Lovely hot scene.

  35. Krystal Wade January 6, 2013 at 4:02 pm #

    Wow. Who knew a beer bottle could be so sexy?!

  36. ellaquinnauthor January 6, 2013 at 5:18 pm #

    Great scene. I voted and tweeted.

  37. J.M. Blackman January 6, 2013 at 5:46 pm #

    I see where he’s getting that problem. You’d think the cool beer would help, but it’s only making the problem worse! In the best kind of way. Way to keep the sexy ratcheting up. Excellent, Angela.

  38. Kylie Scott January 6, 2013 at 5:52 pm #

    That was just lovely. Nice use of beer in any and all situations. Definite extra points for that.

  39. Elaine cantrell January 6, 2013 at 6:44 pm #

    Very sexy!

  40. Elaine cantrell January 6, 2013 at 6:45 pm #

    Sexy six!

  41. Writerlious January 6, 2013 at 7:44 pm #

    OooOOoooh! *fans self* Those six lines were hot!

  42. Stephanie Sullivan January 6, 2013 at 7:52 pm #

    Hot hot hot! Love the six, Angela! I hope you have a wonderful new year! :)

  43. Donna Cummings January 6, 2013 at 8:13 pm #

    I remember this scene! I’m not a beer gal, but this could make me think twice. . . Good luck on the contest!

  44. Brooklyn Wilde January 6, 2013 at 8:37 pm #

    HOT! *wipes brow*

    Love, love, love the title, by the way.

  45. Frank Fisher January 6, 2013 at 9:09 pm #

    Again great use of the beer bottle on her. I also like his declaration for her, I don’t think she can deny it.

  46. pc January 7, 2013 at 2:09 am #

    love the cover and title!

  47. Heather Boyd January 7, 2013 at 5:03 am #

    Nice! I was hoping that beer bottle would be put to good use. :)

    Lol, love how the sound of her own voice shocked her.
