Six Sunday: A Scent of Longing…why Lily can’t date

Welcome to my Six Sentence Sunday. I’m presenting snippets from my April 13th Decadent Publishing release of A Scent of Longing. My vampire romance releases on Friday 13th. How perfect is that? To recap last week: Without her consent, Lily’s friend signed her up for a blind date through the 1Night Stand matching-making service. Lily explains why she can’t go…

“No man will go out with me once he’s finds out what I am. What happens if I do to someone else what Phillip did to me? I couldn’t live with myself.” Bitterness etched Lily’s voice.

“You’re nothing like Phillip.” Her expression gentle, Roxie squeezed Lily’s hand.

  14. LOVE LOVE LOVE this cover 🙂 And aww poor Lily, but I’m sure Madame Eve found just that man who will do more than simply help her move forward. She has that knack 🙂 Grats on the upcoming release xx I super looking forward to reading this one!

    • Cara Bristol says:

      Thank you. I’m very happy with the cover. I wanted to make sure that it said “vampire,” since the title, A Scent of Longing, by itself does not.

  15. What a bloody perfect release date, Cara. You’ve got us all hooked on who Lily is. Excited about this!

  16. Sue says:

    Friday the 13th – wow – and love, love the cover. Great concept

    Great snippet and conflict setup. Surely Madame Eve is up to the task 🙂

  18. Oh my, what *did* Philip do to her, and why does she think she’s not up to snuff to handle the challenge? Great six Cara!

  19. Siobhan Muir says:

    I LOVE that cover, Cara. Your story sounds great. Good luck on your release and I’m looking forward to it! 🙂

  20. An intriguing six, and very much looking forward to this release. 🙂

  21. A blind date w/out her consent? I can’t decide if Roxie is her friend or her enemy. I suppose it depends on that date, huh?

    (FYI, thanks for leaving a comment on my six last week and this. Your feedback is always appreciated, Cara.)
