Six Sentence Sunday 5/1

Wow. Totally missed the boat on last week. It posted about 12 hours and 17 minutes too late *headdesk*. That'll teach me to pay attention to the time and date stamp.

Taking a break from Duality for my wip Spark. I promise I'll jump back into Duality next week. I just kinda need a break while waiting for a few critiques.

This is from the second chapter--new characters: Riona and Sven. Riona works with Duke as a paranormal investigator and is also a Nephilim. Sven is a demon, currently an actor, who has been after Riona for around 700 years. They rarely get this close. She came on set to talk to him about the attempt on his life. He's asked her to meet him at his hotel later.


Riona followed his eyes. Everyone around them was preoccupied. Slyly, Sven slid his hand around her waist, pulling her close. She gasped at the sudden contact and shivered again at his warm breath on her skin. “When you arrive, head to the back of the building. There will be a door to my room.”

Now, go check out my fellow Sunday Sixers! I promise you'll find some awesome stuff waiting for you ;)

Interesting characters - 700 years - oh my how the time flies :D

Lindsay said...

700 years old. Bet he knows a few tricks that aren't in the book

Lisa Fox said...

I think I'd like to enter that door as well. I love it!

Kerrianne Coombes said...

Very good six! Intrigued.

Cara Bristol said...

700 yaars? About time they got close. LOL. Great six.

Jessica K said...

Wow, a proposal for a hotel rendezvous with a millennial demon? Who wouldn't? ;)

Sandra Sookoo said...

ooh, makes me want to know more!

Good six. What's in his room?

J.A. Beard said...

Interesting six.

700 years? Good things come to those who wait, I suppose.

J.Rose Allister said...

Okay, I know I'M already at that door!! Now what? :)

Monica Enderle Pierce said...

Ooh, I have a soft spot for demons, so I'm rooting for him. Get her, Sven!

Liana Brooks said...

I'm torn. On one hand, 700 years is a long time to make a guy chase you. On the other hand, I believe in playing hard to get.

She should bring someone along just to be a brat. :o)

Fun six!

Eleri Stone said...

The 'slyly' makes me suspicious. Does she want to be alone with this man? Hope we get to find out.

AllureVanSanz said...

Sensual promise. Yum.

Great six.

Best,

JoAnne Kenrick said...

fast paced six with the promise of secrets and adventure. Loved it and really, really wanted to read on to find out what would happen after she walked through that back door.

Pip Green said...

Love the 'will she, won't she?' cliffhanger on this. But poor guy ... er, demon ... waiting 700 years?! That's keen.

Roberta Walker said...

Lots of history between those two! Should make for lots of conflict!

Dee Carney said...

You're going to stop there?! You tease!!
