Six Sentence Sunday excerpt: Secret Desires

Welcome to the fourth installment of my Six Sentence Sunday. This week’s excerpt is from my erotic romance novella, Secret Desires, published by Black Velvet Seductions. The hero, Jack, has told his girlfriend Morgan he is going to treat her to a day of pampering at the spa for her thirtieth birthday.


“I have another surprise, but you’ll have to wait.”

“What is it?”

He tweaked her nose. “It’s a surprise.”

A lead weight settled in Morgan’s stomach. There were good surprises like a day at the spa, and bad surprises like an engagement ring.

    Oh, very nice. Great inner thoughts putting a different spin on his ‘surprise’.

    Wasn’t expecting that last bit! Great twist.
