#8sunday snippets entry…Weekend Writing Warriors… The Trouble with Romance


I’m really happy that I’ve rejoined  the Weekend Writing Warriors‘ 8snippet Sunday! I love reading the other amazing snippets by my fellow talented writers!! If you’re reading this and you have know idea what I’m talking about well then you should check out their website, http://www.wewriwa.com/ to read more about it and sign up! (Basically any Work In Progress you have going, you share 8 sentences from it after setting the scene, and receive feedback from other writers. It’s awesome!!)

Anyway I would like to introduce you all to my latest book called, The Trouble with Romance which is the sequel to my début  novel, The Trouble with Playing Cupid. In this scene, singer December Brown and her manager/ best friend, Clarissa Gregory get pulled over for accidentally running a red light.

“Afternoon, You missed that red light back there.” He replied gruffly, his eyes trained forward, as if the long stretch of road ahead was more interesting than anything in the car.

“I know! I’m sorry! I just realized it at the last minute and it was too late to reverse before the light changed to green.”

“Uh huh. License and registration, please.”

Clarissa quickly handed it over, finally chancing a sneaky glance up at him. He wasn’t classically gorgeous like Tom or Damien, December’s bodyguard, or the stylishly preened perfection of Terrence. His nose was just a little on the pointy side, his hair was at least two weeks overdue for a haircut, and he had a brooding kind of look about him as if he’d seen it all, done it all and he was judging you for it. Nevertheless, the cop was still a very good looking man. His steel gray eyes framed enviously long dark lashes that only served to compliment his olive toned complexion, all of which was topped off with a sexy 5 o’clock shadow which piqued Clarissa’s interest.

Hope you enjoyed it!! Check out the rest of the entries for #8Sunday at http://www.wewriwa.com/ just click the links 🙂

Thank you for reading!! xoxo

  1. 🙂 I’m working with a leading lady named December right now too. That being said, I love your 8 sentences and would so buy the book off that alone to see what happens next.

  2. I vote for getting to know this cop a bit better. Okay, a lot better. 🙂 Great snippet!

  3. Love this part of the book! 🙂 Not sure how I feel about the pointy nose. 😦 LOL Great eight!

  4. She’s got a lot of presence of mind, assessing the cop while he’s thinking about writing her a ticket LOL. Enjoyed the excerpt, can’t wait to see what happens here!
