Weekend Writing Warrior 3/10/13

Posted on Mar 10, 2013 by Maggie Wells   12 Comments | Posted in Blog

My new entry as a Weekend Writing Warrior come from my NEW REALEASE, March Madness (Book #3 in the Hot Nights in St. Blaise series) 

Eight sentences from March Madness:

A sad shake of her head broke the connection humming between them. “I’m not a good bet.”

“Neither am I,” he whispered, tucking a wayward curl behind her ear. His knuckles grazed her cheek. It was all he could do to keep from cupping her face in his hands and kissing her senseless. Anything to erase the fear and uncertainty from her eyes.

“I’m worse with relationships than I am with plants, and trust me, Rex, I have a black thumb.”

“I’m not the least bit interested in your thumb.”


See what happens when two commitmentphobes collide?


March Madness! Buy it now at your favorite retailer!

Shelli Ann Jones never considered ‘It takes one to know one’ an effective pick-up line, but when she runs headlong into St. Blaise Regional Medical Center’s elusive Mr. March, she revises her opinion.

Trauma Surgeon Kevin O’Shea should come with a sign that reads BEWARE OF THE DOG, but Shelli Ann couldn’t hold that against him. She only wanted him for his body. At first.

Kevin is fascinated by his new neighbor. So fascinated, he might be turning into peeping Kevin.

The tables turn when Shelli Ann uses the same meaningless flirtation, casual intimacy, and careful standoffishness Kevin thought he had trademarked against him, forcing him to unleash the full force of his dogged determination in his pursuit to win the heart of the only woman who could break his.

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out the snippets posted by my fellow Weekend Writing Warriors!
