Weekend Writing Warrior – 4/13/14

Posted on Apr 13, 2014 by Maggie Wells   8 Comments | Posted in Blog

I had a visit from the cover art fairy! To celebrate I am sharing 8 sentences from my upcoming Harlequin-E Contemporary release, The Last First Date.


Guy Lombardo’s version of “Auld Lang Syne” drifted from the speakers. He turned to her and she lost the will to breathe. Good thing, because when he leaned over the console she was pretty sure the ability was gone too. The backs of his knuckles grazed her cheek and she leaned into the caress.

“Happy New Year, Jessica.”

She knew what was about to happen just as surely as she knew her own name, but that didn’t make it a good idea. “Lang.”

“Forget the old acquaintance, I want to know you.”


Now for the pretty!



Be sure to check out all the Weekend Writing Warrior posts this week! Have a fabulous Sunday, my friends!

    Who needs oxygen, anyway? I wonder if she’ll be any less breathless after he kisses her? …probably not.
