8 Sentence Sunday #28

Posted Sep 29 2013, 7:00 am in , , , ,

This is from Something to Prove, the first time Elizabeth walks into O’Leary’s as she’s trying to figure out how a successful bar runs. This is also the first time she sees Colin.

                                 She looked up and swallowed hard. The man in front of her was mouthwateringly gorgeous. His mussed black hair framed a face dominated by a happy-go-lucky smile. She lost her ability to form coherent sentences. “Uh…”

                                He tilted his head and studied her face. “You look beat. Tough day?”

 

Yeah, the O’Leary men have that effect on women.
