Six Sentence Sunday #1

Six sentences from my July 26 release from Samhain, Trespass.

She regretted what she’d done back in Buffalo, and until this morning she thought she’d never regret anything that badly for the rest of her life. But this, seeing the kindest man she’d ever met so clearly disappointed and untrusting… Right now she’d give anything to fix what she’d wrecked, or maybe to have never crossed paths with Russ Gray in the first place. He deserved her like he deserved a kick in the teeth, the way she deserved a second chance—not at all.

Sarah watched him clearing the dining room table as she settled into the blankets, and she saw the biggest regret of her life standing there by the window. She had another urge to run, run far and fast until her lungs burst, if only to stand a chance of forgetting what they’d had for two glorious nights, the thing she’d wrecked, just like she’d known she would.


Head here to check out all the other Six Sentence Sunday excerpts.

  14. You write regret really well. I'm always telling my kids off for saying 'sorry' without actually meaning it and then following that up with a lecture on how awful it is to really be sorry. They roll their eyes a lot.
