Six Sentence Sunday — "All's Fair in Love and War" #SixSunday
Welcome to “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments you’d care to leave.
This teaser comes from my soon to be released novella called “All’s Fair in Love and War.” The book is interspersed with the heroine’s dream sequences that are parodies of various romance sub-genres she loves to read. This six comes from a dream sequence that is a little Yentl meets Fiddler on the Roof. Sarah is Shelby’s mother and the hero and heroine have had a disastrous one night stand in real life.
“Where is the wench?” [Colin] asked with a bored air, looking right past [Shelby].
Sarah shoved Shelby forward until she stood toe to toe with Colin. She gazed up at him, wanting to dislike him but unable to control the flutters in her stomach or the simpering smile that broke free from its bonds of pride. She saw him wrinkle his nose when he recognized her. Without a word to her, he turned to the Rabinowitzes and said, “Who else have you got? I’ve already kicked the tires and given this one a test drive and found her quite…unacceptable.”
Ooh, ouch! That stings. More like a nightmare, methinks. All’s Fair in Love and War releases May 11th from Evernight Publishing.

Ow, REJECTED. “Kicked the tires”–is that what’s it’s called now? 😉
Yes, ouch! Nice six!
Oh – that deserved a sharp slap in the face! Even though it was in her dream, I hope she administered said slap the next time she saw him.
Can’t wait for the May 11th release!
Ouch, I’d be very tempted to kick his – er – tires, too!
Great development of the rejection. I’m emotionally involved.
Yikes, if that dream sequence translates to reality, it’s gonna be a disaster beyond belief. Engrossing concept, Lila, and great six!
Ouch indeed! That IS a nightmare. Man, I’m glad I don’t have her dreams…
Awesome! That’s just hard core brutal right there. Loved it!
Owwww. Talk about hitting a girl where she lives! Great dream sequence, Lila. I sure want to know what the heck in Shelby’s subconsciouse would create that nightmare.
Ouch! Damn, he can be a real punk. I bet she lost her simpering smile. Fun six, Lila. 🙂
