Six Sentence Sunday

Welcome to my SSS! For the next two months, I'm featuring my RT Award Nominee, the het paranormal/time travel-ish erotic romance, Two Lives in Waltz Time. I have a real soft spot for this one. It combines a lot of my favorite elements in romance - time travel, paranormal, snarky banter, and a lot of action. It's the story of Maddy Cardinale, an art restorer at a prestigious NYC museum, her co-worker, the irrepressible Cash Vinci, and what happens to them when Cash receives a mysterious painting. At the start of the story, Maddy has arrived for her midnight shift after getting caught in a downpour. Her best friend Ava is offering to help her out before Cash shows up.

It wasn't much—just a faded white T-shirt that said, “I'll show you my motherboard, if you show me your hard drive” and a pair of navy cut-off sweats. Maddy chewed at her lower lip as she held them up.
“No offense, but if I wear these, I'm going to look like a clown.”
Ava smiled brightly, steering Maddy so she was forced to look at her reflection again. “Yes, but you'll be a dry, non-transparent clown.”
“And suddenly I see the appeal.”

They do night shifts at US museums? Wow! thank goodness they don't here. :)

I'm with Ava - being dry is far better than being wet.

Very funny. The shirt, the casual reminder by her friend that her current shirt was see-through, the last line: all very funny without feeling like a stand up routine.

Sue Ann Bowling said...

Ah, practicality (and modesty) wins over fashion.
