Getting a late start on the blog, though I had an early start to my day. Don’t ask. Same ol’, same ol’ and that’s boring. 😉 So…todays #1lineWed theme is a line from page 5, 16, 27 or 38. So…since I’m fighting writer’s block, maybe picking some lines will help me get off high-center. Quick rundown–Peony “Peni” Comanescu is the surrogate mother of twins. Their sperm donor is a powerful man with mob ties. Due to circumstances and on account of because, she’s run away and ended up at the Casa Blanca Resort and Spa on Mimosa Key. Dominic Karras, from the Hard Target team, has been recruited by Gabe Rossi to help protect her and the twins until they can be spirited away.
So…for your reading enjoyment (hopefully). a short excerpt from page 27 of DOUBLE TROUBLE:
Dom returned to the kitchen, his thumbs flying over the text app on his phone. Peni’s story pissed him off. So did her panic. And damn if her cringing away like he was going to hit her topped off his outrage with a liberal helping of hot sauce. He’d never laid hands on a woman in anger and any man who did didn’t deserve to be called a man.
He texted the information he had gotten from her to Gabe, and added that he thought the girl might try to run again. He planned to stay awake but if she went out the window, he might not be able to catch her in time. Gabe needed to alert resort security. He was sure as hell positive that Vasile’s attack dog was hanging around just waiting for a chance to act. He might have lost track of her but this Cezar dude would turn up sooner than later. Dom just hoped it was much later—after he’d spirited Peni and the kids off Mimosa Key and had them stashed under new IDs in a place Vasile couldn’t touch them.
Now, I really need new words–like a minimum of 3K today. *sigh* Any of you have words to share?
