Six Sentence Sunday - Walking The Edge: Snippet #6

Hello beautiful people!

It's absolutely awful where I live today - dratty weather, lots of rain and wind, cold. Ick! But... it's the perfect weather to snuggle with a cup of hot chocolate and peruse the SSS snippets. So there you have the highlight of my day. :)

So, I posted about the dream Amelia has of her hunky French lover in the past 2 weeks. Today I'm gonna show you what happens when she does track down this man. His name is Gerard Besson, and he is a police commissioner in Marseille.
Gerard is right in the middle of a tricky investigation featuring a gang of high-end casino robbers, and he is suspicious of Amelia when she waltzes into his world. He wants answers from her, but things don't exactly go as he had planned when he corners her in a dark side alley.


"...Biding his time, he snuck in a breath when she took a step back, closer to the dark alleyway. Then with a lunge, he swept her into his arms and pulled her back, braced against his chest. With one arm, he restrained her torso while he brought the palm of his other against her opened mouth.
Instead of kicking and screaming, she went still. That should have alerted him that something was off, but he didn't listen to his gut feeling, intent as he was on getting answers out of her.
"Who sent you?" he growled in her ear, but he had no time to say more, because he felt a sharp jab in the sensitive flesh under his arm. ..."

Catch the other SSS snippets here - trust me, you won't be disappointed!

And don't forget - Walking The Edge (Corpus Brides: Book One) is on sale here at the bargain price of $1.99 for a full-length novel! Wanna know more about the book? Check out the trailer featured on the top right corner of this page. :)

From Mauritius with love,

Zee

This is getting more and more interesting each week

JoAnne Kenrick said...

fab snippet, the action and sense that he knows something is off had me at the edge of my seat wondering what was about to happen. Nice lead up to the jab. xx

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Chantal! Yup, he didn't see it coming at all. :) Ack, sorry to hear about your icky weather too. Let's hang in there together, ok? :)

Zee Monodee said...

Lol Cara. The most demure-looking woman can be a very dangerous threat indeed. :)

Zee Monodee said...

Lol Jessica. Yup - no way to treat a woman, is it? :)

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Sarah!

Zee Monodee said...

Lol. Thank you Lindsay! :)

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Alix! Lol, they're both worthy adversaries. I'll post more next week, hope you'll come by. :)

Zee Monodee said...

Xakara, he chose the wrong woman to mess with. :)

Luxie Ryder said...

Sounds like he's bitten off more than he can chew! Excellent six :)

Zee Monodee said...

Lol Luxie! Yep, I guess he's met his match now. :)

Kathleen Grieve said...

Okay...so you left me hanging!Not fair! More please...

Zee Monodee said...

Lol Kathleen! I promise the next six will come up on Sunday. :)

Gem Sivad said...

That was a surprise. Great lead up and delivery.

Jalisa said...

It's clear to me that I need to slow down when reading on Sunday. I'll end up making way too many purchases, because now I really need to know what happens to Amelia. There's just something about a woman who can remain calm when grabbed in an alley that makes you absolutely have to continue. What a great six. Thank you for sharing!

Jennifer said...

Now this sounds like an awesome story! Great six!
Thanks!

lexcade said...

I love it when they're feisty. I guess Gerard should learn to be more careful when approaching people in dark alleys.

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Gem! Glad if that caught you by surprise. :)

Zee Monodee said...

Wow, Jalisa! Thanks for those lovely words. :)

Zee Monodee said...

Thank you Jennifer!

Zee Monodee said...

Lol Lex. Yes, he should be more careful, especially when approaching dangerous-looking women. :)

Cate Masters said...

Yikes, she's a wildcat! Great snippet.

Debra Moore said...

"hen with a lunge, he swept her into his arms and pulled her back, braced against his chest." Best thing I've read today!

Zee Monodee said...

Lol Cate! She gives as good as she gets. :)

Zee Monodee said...

Thank you Debra! You made my day! :)

1000th.monkey said...

Ha! Maybe he'll think twice before he does that to another woman...

Zee Monodee said...

Lol 1000th Monkey! I would certainly hope so, as does Amelia! :)
