Six Sentence Sunday

Welcome to my SSS! For the months of March and April, I'm highlighting sentences from the very first novel I had published, a het vampire erotic romance called Chains of Jericho. It was the very first book I had final in EPIC's ebook awards (then called the EPPIE), and since I had two final this year, I figured this was a good time to share the one that started it all.

Maya got bitten a second time by Danny when she was examining him. Dec has returned with supplies and found her buried in research.

Dropping the bags containing Maya’s things, he marched forward to reach for her arm. Maya shocked him by bolting from the chair and putting the table between them.

“Before you get mad--” she started.

Dec’s brows shot up. “Before?” he demanded. “You think I can walk into my room, see that you’ve been hurt, and not already be upset?”


To check out all the other six sentence contributions, head over to the official website.

Gerat six! I've been enjoying these peeks into Chains of Jericho.

Sherry Gloag said...

A powerful six that leaves me wanting to know what he's going to do next.

Angela Quarles said...

Great 6! Loved his interruption of "Before?" Whole snippet was very visual, I could picture it...

Wildcat's Wife said...

Yikes! Yeah, never say "before you get mad" LOL. Maya is probably gonna get an earful from Dec. Oh dear. This really shows his concern for her.

Kate said...

Poor Maya, how many more bites will she have to endure? Dec needs to make it better real soon...

Christine Warner said...

Well done six...love the name Dec too!

sue said...

very descriptive and am sure it will be resolved

Veronica Scott said...

I LIKE him. But I also want to know why she put the table between them...intriguing excerpt!

Elin Gregory said...

Sooo - if he gets mad he might be violent to her? This is an intriguing story.

Jessica Subject said...

Love Dec already. An intriguing six! :)

Karla Doyle said...

I bought this last week because the snippets have been so good. Can't wait to find a few hours to devour it in its entirety. :)

I love this! You've conveyed so much in such few lines, Vivien. Nicely done! :)

patonlorraine said...

This is great, Vivien! I love how they interact. Is "Chains of Jericho" only available at Amazon? (I looked on the Kobo website and didn't see it).

Babette James said...

Nice six. Makes me want to know what's going to happen next.

Sue Ann Bowling said...

Sounds like she is assuming he's going to get mad at her, and he's mad at whoever hurt her.

Monica Enderle Pierce said...

I'm with Dec. Before? Seriously? (I really like him, btw.)

Daezarkian13 said...

You have a great talent for ratcheting up emotionally tense situations in just a few lines. Nicely done!

Sarah Ballance said...

Both of their reactions are so impressively real. I *love* what he says here.

I think I'm in love with Dec already :)
