Today on Weekend Writing Warriors #8Sunday, I’m sharing eight sentences from my untitled contemporary romance. While hibernating the winter in a beach house Josh is being paid to remodel, the former K9 handler is befriended by a service puppy in training and her owner. This week we’re skipping ahead to where he’s in the shower the next morning after meeting dog and owner on the beach.
Josh stuck his head under the beating water attempting to ignore the incessant pounding at the front door. When it finally stopped, he cut off the water, snagged a towel off the rack and wrapped it around his waist. On his way to the bedroom, the knocking commenced again, this time at the second floor entry off the deck.
“Damn it,” he said cursing as he raced up the stairs and flung open the door. After a questioning blink at a women in a business suit with a bag of puppy chow in her arms, a shrill bark directed his attention to her feet. Sky, the Labrador he’d met on the beach yesterday.
“I’m sorry to bother you.” The woman shifted nervously in her high heels.
