Six Sentence Sunday #18: One Wicked Night

Happy Easter!! I’m continuing with excerpts from One Wicked Night but it is so hard to keep it down to just six sentences. Forgive me. This one is seven.  We pick up where Lottie and Benedict are engaging in a little verbal foreplay over dinner but her last comments about his enjoyment of Town with his family (mother and sister) in tow has gotten his hackles up. Enjoy!

* * *

Lottie threw her head back and laughed. “Oh, you look ready to strangle me. Be calm, Benedict. I only enquire into my guest’s love life. They described your mother as youthful before we determined her identity. I do not care to interfere in known or clandestine attachments. I have no right to damage hearts.”

    Sounds like Lottie knows something Benedict doesn’t. 😉 Great scene, Heather! Happy Easter to you, too!

    Nobody has any right to damage hearts, but we all do, sigh! Beautifully wtitten.

    I just REALLY enjoyed the flow of the words, the “voice”. Terrific six!

    Lottie sounds like quite a handfull! She may not “interfere” in those attachments, but it sounds like she is very knowledgeable… I really like her last line.

    Terrific six, Heather. Last week’s six convinced me to get a copy of my very own. Loved it! Looking forward to reading more of your work:-)

    Lottie sounds a bit intrusive and overly curious about Benedict. Ummm On her last line — somehow, I don’t believe her. LOL!!
