Flash fiction is the topic this week on Romance Writers Weekly. The challenge is using the words Fire, Rain and Dog. I’ll be taking part of a scene from a current work in progress. Hope you’ve visited A.S. Fenichel already.
Josh slammed the door against the howling wind. Alone, Tori fell on the sofa in front of the roaring fire as the nor’easter beat torrents of rain against the windows of the beach house.
Men. All different but ultimately the same. She’d left a jealous abuser and stalker only to fall for a hard-headed veteran with PTSD and commitment issues. How could he be angry with her when she’d only sought to help him find his former canine partner?
Yeah, she’d agreed to work at Harley’s bar, however, Josh didn’t know why. It was the only way to get the former SEAL to use his contacts to help find Josh’s dog. As luck would have it, Harley stumbled upon a military contractor holding a private war dog auction. Josh’s jealously would certainly vanish if they returned with Skye.
Of course his bitch ex-fiancée had shown up only making things worse. The daddy’s girl wanted back in Josh’s life for some reason and Tori intended to find out why.
Now on to the next author on the Romance Writers Weekly hop is the lovely Leslie Hachtel.
