Welcome, welcome. It’s week two of post-Six Sentence Sunday. If you’re here from the Weekend Writing Warriors linky link, you’re in the right place. If you’re here from Facebook’s Sunday Snippet (or Snippet Sunday), you’re also in the right place. The picture, by the way, has nothing to do with the snippet I’m posting. I’d done a search for ‘sexy male swashbuckler’ and this was one of the photos that came up. What it has to do with swashbucklers, I have no idea! But I liked the image so I thought I’d share. 😉
This week’s snippet is from Swashbuckler, a contemporary romance that is still a WIP. Rachel has a lunch meeting with Rodger, an A-list actor who is playing a character in Rachel’s novel, Swashbuckler. They’ve never met, but Rachel based her hero on Rodger’s sexy looks and attitude so she’s very nervous about meeting him in person. Their first interaction doesn’t go well–he doesn’t know it’s her, pays her little attention, and says some pretty stupid and arrogant things. As Rachel finally gets around to introducing herself, Rodger knocks over his glass in surprise, spilling water all over the table. This is Rachel’s POV.
Rachel watched his mounting guffaws with relief, feeling more relaxed as Rodger became more uncomfortable.
“Well that’s embarrassing,” he finally said, holding out his hand to her.
“Spilling the water or being rude?” Being an ass, is more like it. Rachel shook his hand, quickly withdrawing hers before she had time to think about why her palm was tingling.
“Yeah. Sorry about that. I’ve a lot on my mind.”
Rachel just raised one eyebrow.
