Today on Weekend Writing Warriors #8Sunday, I’m sharing 8-10 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. Last week he opened his door to find the woman he met on the beach with a bag of puppy chow and the pup, Sky, sitting at her feet. She explains she has to be in court in Virginia and her dog sitter cancelled. Standing half-naked in a towel he barters asking about her discount at the home improvement store where she works.
“That’ll work, I need a new reciprocating saw.” He winked.
Jeez, why did he have to be such a good-looking dog lover? She extended her hand, saying “Thanks, I should be back around five.” Warm fingers clasped around hers with solid grip that felt secure. Something her marriage had sorely lacked. That nightmare that would end today.
She turned and descended the deck stairs for her car waiting in his driveway. This time, she didn’t look back like the day she’d met him on the beach. Today was all about moving forward.
