Six Sentence Sunday #14 (3/6)

This weeks six is a continuation from the last two weeks. It will run for three more Sundays. This excerpt comes from my novel, Redemption, currently under contract with Noble Romance. Thanks for reading and posting your comments 🙂

Olivia hesitated, her mouth was suddenly dry, her tongue stuck to the roof of her mouth when she tried to speak. This was all so surreal; her pulse drummed in her ears as she returned his dark violet stare.

“You’re an angel,” the words left her lips in a  barely audible whisper. 

She heard Liam’s breath catch in his throat. Her mind raced when he didn’t deny it, the intensity in his eyes triggered a fresh spring of tears, blurring her vision as she anxiously bit the inside of her bottom lip until the tangy copper flavor touched her tongue. “Say something,” she cried, unable to bear the silence a moment longer.

    Of all the things you ever get to hear a heroine call a hero out on, that one is rare! I’ve got my own angel trilogy going, so I love it every time I run into another one.

    Congrats, and Great Six!

  7. Very intense. Now the question is if he’s an angel still on the ins with the Big Guy upstairs. Given your work’s title, I’m wondering if the answer is no.
