Romance Writers Weekly: Flash Fiction

Romance Writers Weekly with coffe cup underneath and a mocha foam heart in cupFlash 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.

Hope you enjoyed this snippet. Planing to have this story completed and finished in time for my RWA chapter’s 7 Cities Book Fest  in October. Our guest is author, Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Now on to the next author on the Romance Writers Weekly hop is the lovely Leslie Hachtel.

Summer’s End

This week on Romance Writers Weekly Jenna Da Sie asked authors to write a poem about summer ending.

Summer’s End

A lazy sun shortcuts the sky as tender tender leaves of green mottle to yellow and rust

Shrouded in dusk, impatient stars twinkle their early greeting

Evening fires with wine compliment toasts summer’s end

Now let’s hear an ode to summer from    S. C. Mitchell.
