Weekend Writing Warriors: Breaking the Rules #8Sunday #WeWriWa

I'm back for another round of Weekend Writing Warriors! 

Here are the rules: 

  • Your WeWriWa/8sentence post must be what appears when the linky link is clicked.
  • Your WeWriWa intro/greeting and 8 sentence excerpt must be at the top of the post--nothing before.
  • 8 sentences for the story excerpt, please.*
  • For poetry, limit the word count to 150 words. 
  • A link back to must be included visibly on the page.
Today, I'm happy to share an excerpt from Breaking the Rules, which will be released TOMORROW from Crimson Romance! Woo hoo! So excited. I can't wait for you to meet Colin and Hope!

     He scooted her all the way back. “You can’t go around saying stuff like you did back there and just pretend nothing’s happening.”

     “I’m sorry, Colin. I didn’t think before I spoke.”

     He put his arms around her, holding onto the rail.   “Sometimes it’s better to just speak what’s on your mind.” He lifted one hand and caressed her cheek. “Damn it, Hope. Life is too short to ignore the truth and the truth is that we are extremely attracted to each other.”

Will Hope and Colin continue to break the rules? You'll have to read to find out! 

A forbidden love affair in the past has led Hope Robinson, a middle school principal, to Harbor Bay, Florida, where she commits herself to play by the rules. This can be difficult for a perpetual klutz, who—even strapped in a cast—has to uphold a competent attitude at all times.

Luckily, she has Dr. Colin Calaway on her side, a widower and father of a student, who is ready to give love another try. When Colin convinces Hope they should explore the connection between them, a steamy romance develops, though it could destroy them both. They must decide if their jobs—and their hearts—are worth the risk.

Sensuality Level: Sensual

B&N: To Come


Check back next week for more from Hope and Colin!
