Jennifer James: Six Sentence Sunday 14: Lucky Sevens

 

So guess what I’m doing? I’m going to write a western. That’s right, you heard me. A western. And there won’t be any paranormal activity or monsters in it. Although there will be a little ghostly interference. Just a dash. A smidgen. I’m putting the proposal together and am hoping that Decadent will like it for their Free Will series. If they don’t, I’m still writing this book cause these people have been in my head for years and years and damnit, they’re getting good and loud and rather annoying.

I’ve scribbled a few scenes down as they’ve come to me. Here’s six sentences from one of them. Normally I give you guys some erotica, but this one’s a little different. The hero has managed to start a bar fight. Well not a fight. More of a scuffle. Anyway, he gets himself, the heroine, and the other guy tossed out by an off duty deputy. Now, he and the heroine aren’t dating. Yet. In fact, he’s not even sure why he’s followed her to her home in Free Will, Wyoming. All he knows is that he did. And damn if he isn’t pissed that some idiot was groping her in the bar. LOL.

Here’s your six:

(OH and the heroine’s name is Meghan Aubrey Johansson and the hero’s is Colton Samuel Jones. But he goes by Sam. Whay Sam? It’s a long story….. :) )

“What the hell is wrong with you?” She grabbed his elbow and tried to drag him to a stop but he pulled free and kept walking without slowing down.

Charlie climbed into his truck, threw some muttered swear words ¬†and a rude gesture in Sam’s direction, and peeled out of the parking lot.

“Nothing.” His jaw flexed and he began to stalk down the sidewalk with clenched fists.

“Stupid, stubborn man.”

 

What do you guys think? Should I keep going with this?

      Yes, yes it does. *snicker* My heroines seem to have that in spades….

      Will do. And yes, I do think my keyboard may just spontaneously combust. Particularly when Sam and J.T. have screen time together. J.T. is a bit of a player, a lifetime cowboy, dangerously good looking, and in love with (he believes) the wrong woman. He’ll get his own book. ;) But that won’t stop him from warning off Sam and being kind of a dick about it. >.<

      Yay! Hi Kat! OOOhhh girl I got a great e-mail last night….I can’t wait until I have a definite “i can talk about this now” sorta thing in my hand. All I can say is “squee!” and I think I’ll be stopping by to Bad Boys later this year….. *wink wink*

      LOL. I’ve got the plot mostly …plotted. So I know what happens but watching these two get there is gonna be awesome.

    Well, why not, they want their story tols, you want to tell it, so go for it :-) There’s enough in these six to captivate my attention.

    I vote ‘YES’. This was just enough to tease! I want more!

      I get called a tease quite often. LOL. I try to put up six sentences that are actually, well, intriguing. Interesting. Titillating. :) and I’m glad to see you here L.J. Always glad to see a new commenter.

    Oh yes, definitely keep going, especially if these characters have been waiting for you to write them for a long time! I enjoyed the excerpt, would be happy to read the rest of the story…even six sentences at a time…

    Sounds like it’s going to be a fun story. And who doesn’t love a secy cowboy? ;) Nice six!

      Weird people. Aliens. And maybe nuns for being such a terrible source of temptation. :)

    uh, make that sexy cowboy. I guess I should put my glasses on. lol

    I’m already half in love with him just because of his name but then you say he’s defending her before he really even knows her? **Swoon**

  13. Jennifer James

    :D He’s just the best. I really like this guy. I’m sitting here going over some old scenes I wrote for these two fixing some head hopping issues and whatnot (look at me, I can be taught!) and I’m falling all in crush with him again.

    He’s a hero…and it’s selfless, ingrained, just a part of who he is.

    I think Sam’s going to have a lot of fans and be perplexed by the phenomenon. lol

  14. Ann Swann

    Yes, keep going! We can always use another hero!

      I am. Right now, actually. This scene is just too funny…. poor Meghan is pissed! And stranded. LOL. Think she’ll take a ride from Sam without reading him the riot act? Naw, I didn’t think so either…. ;D

      And now I’m going to get called a tease again. Oh well. :)
