Six Sentence Sunday - Walking The Edge: Snippet #2

Hey beautiful people!

Once again it's Sunday! Quite stoked this week coz Sara from Six Sentence Sunday has graciously accepted to list me as a regular SSS contributor on the site's page. :) What can I say though - I'm totally addicted to this little game of posting a quip and sending it out into the world like this.

So, last week I started to post snippets from my upcoming release, Walking The Edge. It releases next Monday, June 27 *gasp* (cannot believe it's getting so close!). It's a romantic suspense/thriller, and you can find the book description here.

Last Sunday I posted the first six from the story. Remember? Amelia, the heroine, thought there was a man stalking her in Selfridges on Oxford Street in London.  Take a peek if you want... And here comes the next six (editted for the purpose of this post!).

Enjoy!


"....Maybe she tuned in to the hairs rising on her nape, or to the little voice whispering in her mind, telling her there were eyes boring into her back and checking into her every move.
Was she going insane? The question snapped into her brain like a tight-pulled elastic band being released, stinging her when it hit home.
Come on, she told herself, you’re in a busy department store and there’s an idiot tagging your every step.
Her gaze darted to Nathaniel, the hulk of a man who was her assigned chauffeur and man for all tasks, it seemed. Or, he could just be the watchdog her husband had set on her trail...."


Find more amazing SSS quips here! I'm totally hooked on some of these snippets. :)

From Mauritius with love,

Zee

Great descriptions in this piece. Hmm, is she going insane or is someone really following her? Can't wait to find out!

Misa Buckley said...

Creepy! >.<

Nice six!

Alix said...

the hairs on the back of my neck are prickly now too. Very creepy. Great six!

Graylin Fox said...

Great setup. Can almost feel her skin crawl!

Xakara said...

"...and man for all tasks..."

I totally took that wrong. *grin*

But just because she's paranoid, doesn't mean someone's not out to get her!

Lol Xakara! Yes, she is getting paranoid out there. :)

Thank you Layna. Lol - the rest will be up for grabs as from next Monday, when the book goes up for sale. *wink* :)

I like that last line too.

Stalkers or not, you made me feel edgy and look around. Great snippet.

Thanks Gem! These were lovely words. :)

The tension increases! Best of luck with the new release!~

Your imagery is GREAT! Congrats on your new release, Zee! So exciting :)

You better not leave us hanging too long. Is she crazy, is she not? Inquiring minds need to know!

Zee Monodee said...

Thank you Taryn! I'm getting all excited here!

Carolyn Rosewood said...

Very intriguing! Well done!

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Lex! Nah, won't leave you guys hanging for much longer. Things should be clearer next week when the "husband" comes on the stage. :)

Cate Masters said...

Oo, wonderful intrigue. Lots going on this snippet! Makes me want to read on to find out what's really going on.

You can cut the tension with a knife! Great six :)

Watchdog, huh? That makes me wonder what she's up to that she needs a guard.

Sarah Grimm said...

Great tension in this six! Well done!

Cara Bristol said...

Well done. You've packed a lot into your six. Tight, descriptive, active writing.

Sandy Nachlinger said...

I missed SSS last week, so I went back and read your last post. I'm so glad I did. This is a terrific idea for a story. I enjoyed today's post too. Lots of tension.
(thanks for posting on my blog too)

Lindsay said...

Now that is just plain spooky. Congrats on the upcoming release. Looks like another for my TBR pile

Lindsay said...

Is the book going to be available for Kindle?

Jessica Subject said...

If she's got bad feelings like that, maybe it's best she has the bodyguard. All the best with your release!

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Cate! I really wanted the pace to ramp up here. :)

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Angela! Over the moon to be included in the amazing SSS list. :)

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks for the compliment, Luxie!

Zee Monodee said...

Hailey - my point exactly! What is really going on around her? :)

Zee Monodee said...

Thank you Sarah!

Zee Monodee said...

Awesome compliment, Cara! Thank you!

Zee Monodee said...

Lol Sandy! Glad you like the story idea. And I loved your snippet too, btw. :)

Zee Monodee said...

Aww, thank you Lindsay! That's really nice of you.

Yes, the book should be available on Kindle, because Noble Romance's books are available at third party retailers too. :)

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Jessica. But the real question is - the bodyguard is here to protect her, or to be the watchdog...?

JoAnne Kenrick said...

Duh.duh.duhhhhhhh oh no, who is the watchdog? Her chauffeur, or is her chauffeur just the guy to save her? I'm totally intrigued and looking forward to reading the full story xxx Love the cover, and congrats on the upcoming release!!!

Zee Monodee said...

Lol, thanks JoAnne! Let's just say no one is really who they seem to be in there... :)

Kathleen Grieve said...

Very suspenseful Six! Love the analogies you weaved in!

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Kathleen!

Zee Monodee said...

Lol, 1000th Monkey (what an intriguing handle, btw!). Glad you liked the quip. :)
