Six Sentence Sunday – 11/11/12 + CONTEST!!!

Posted on Nov 11, 2012 by Maggie Wells   12 Comments | Posted in Blog

This week, I’ll be sharing six sentences from the August installment of my Hot Nights in St. Blaise series. But I’ll also be giving away a digital ARC of the first installment, Jumping Mr. January to one lucky visitor, so be sure to leave a comment with your email address!

Welcome to St. Blaise, Missouri: Home of The Men and Women of St. Blaise Regional Medical Center

When the St. Blaise Regional Medical Center Board of Directors hired hometown girl, Beth Watkins, to jump start their public relations, they never imagined she’d be stripping their most prominent doctors, nurses, and support staff down to their birthday suits in order to beef up the hospital’s bank account.

Six men and six women were chosen to represent the best and brightest of this little town nestled in the heart of the Mark Twain National Forest. They also happened to be the hottest tickets in town. Soon the fundraising calendar is spiking temperatures throughout the Show Me state, and the men and women of St. Blaise are setting their small-town nights on fire.

Watch for the HOT NIGHTS IN ST. BLAISE series coming in 2013 from Turquoise Morning Press!

Here are six sentences from August Awakening:

“But I can’t help but think maybe we might be good for each other, too,” he said quietly. “I need to be in control to survive.” He trailed his fingertips over the curve of her jaw to the hollow of her collarbone. “You need someone to take the weight off your shoulders.” His body tensed, ready to spring the moment she gave over to the possibility. “If you give your worries to me, I’ll give you what you need, Jenny. I swear I’ll set you free.”

Be sure to comment below for your chance to win Jumping Mr. January – coming in January 2013 from Turquoise Morning Press. Contest will close at 11:59PM Saturday, November 17, 2012.

    Very hypnotic hero. Bet she’ll let him take the weight off her shoulders, and she’ll give all her worries to him! 🙂 Lovely six.
