Six Sentence Sunday–12/11 All Wrapped Up: The Present

Happy Holidays!  And welcome back to Six Sentence Sunday.  Thank you for visiting today and previously if this is not your first time here.  I appreciate all comments, so please share!

Today, I’m spotlighting one of the stories in my Christmas Collection All Wrapped Up.  It’s a contemporary called The Present.  To this point, Tess has had to tell her sister’s boyfriend that she’s breaking up with him–two days before Christmas.  Now Hal has offered her the present he’d brought for Janice:  a pair of diamond earrings that would save out-of-work Tess.  However, Hal suggests that the earrings are payment for services rendered.

His dark eyes glittered wickedly. “For delivering your sister’s message, though there is another service you could do that would put paid to the account.”

Tess stared at him. Her pulse raced and her mouth turned dry as he pulled his shirt out of his pants and started to unbutton it. She glanced down at the diamonds in her hands then raised her chin. “What do you want me to do?”

Thanks for coming by.  Stop by the Journal tomorrow when I’ll have 12 Books of Christmas on my blog, complete with giveaways.  Meanwhile, check out the other wonderful authors on Six Sentence Sunday.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Wicked describes him very well. Not sure diamonds will lure her into more, though. She seems more like the kind of girl who might give him a taste of her fist before she leaves. 🙂

    I wish I knew what he was asking for. First thought of course was himself, but I wasn’t sure.
