Weekend Writing Warrior – 1/18/15

Posted on Jan 18, 2015 by Maggie Wells   6 Comments | Posted in Blog

Having a hard time waking up this morning? Here are 8 sentences from my latest release, Spring Chickens, to deliver your morning jolt:

She laced her fingers at the base of his skull, sliding her hips along the edge of the table and pulling him along with her. “You had coffee. Gimme more of yours,” she whispered and yanked his head down again.

He chuckled against her mouth, his lips molding to hers—tasting, testing, tempting. “Like that?”

She squeezed her eyes shut and shook her head. “No. Yes. More.”



You don’t have to be a spring chicken to fall in love


Bram Hatchett thought he buried his heart with his wife, but when a big city beauty blows into town to dispose of the family farm, she captures everyone’s attention. Particularly his.

Lynne Prescott’s former marriage was marked by her husband’s infidelities and doomed by the secrets and lies he left in his wake. Disillusioned and adrift, she seeks refuge in the simplicity of small town life.

There are few secrets in Heartsfield, Arkansas, but when a few loose boards on a rickety old porch bring them together, not even the combined forces of nosy neighbors, disapproving children and a disturbing decrease in the poultry population can stymie the attraction between the handsome widower and the intriguing divorcee.

But Lynne and Bram are both old enough to know there are no guarantees in life.

Can they set the fears of their pasts aside and learn to trust their hearts just one more time?

Be sure to check out all of my fellow Weekend Writing Warriors and see you next week!

    Mmmm. Never been a big fan of coffee, but then I read this and I basically decide to dedicate my life to the bean. Fantastic!

    ‘it isn’t over ’til it’s over is my motto. Hot and sweet snippet.

    Like Evelyn, I’m not a coffee person. But I’m starting to see why other people might be. 😉

    I might even like coffee if I could “drink” it that way! Terrific, fun snippet!
