Hey, all! I’m working on LOVE AND ROCKETS (Coastal Heat #3 – October 2016). I’ll be sharing some bits from this one as I work on it. Still without our glasses, our hero spots a woman hanging back in the shadows of the dim hotel ballroom.
Knowing he’d blown any chance of appearing suave or even mildly cool in front of the woman on the other side of the round table, he snatched up the model of Saturn and dropped onto a knee.
Holding the ringed planet out in front of him like an offering, he peered at the black-clad figure hanging back in the shadows. “I know you said you wanted at least a full carat, Sweetheart, but this one has almost twice the mass of the whole Earth.”
His spur of the moment proposal was met with a surprisingly girlish giggle. Jake didn’t let that stop him. “The core is probably iron and nickel, but I can promise you, you’ll never want for ammonia.”
Again, the woman giggled. She sounded young. Too young for him. Disappointment flared inside him but immediately subsided.
That’s it for this week. Be sure to check out all of this weekend’s Weekend Writing Warrior posts!
