Six Sentence Sunday - A Knight in Cowboy Boots #5

This is the "afterglow" moment from A Knight in Cowboy Boots. Hm. I guess that says it all.

Maddie felt as though someone had just hit a long-overdue pressure-release valve inside her. Or like she’d dropped a couple of fifty pound weights and been filled with helium. 

She felt like melted ice cream.

Her second coherent thought was that Zach was damned heavy.

The phrase “dead weight” ran through her mind. If he weren’t breathing in her ear like an asthmatic steam engine, she would have thought she’d killed him.

From a Knight in Cowboy Boots, releasing from Pink Petal Books August 4, 2011.

  1. I love it! Very sexy and Maddie has sultry eyes. Plus, it goes great with the Texas setting. I can't wait until August 4th!

  2. you do both steamy and humour very well

  3. lol! I like everything about this!! Great six!

  4. "...asthmatic steam engine..." now, that ain't sexy, but it's damn funny ;)

  5. Love the melted ice cream, and the last line was the whipping cream on top! Must have been some steamy lovemaking going on.

  6. Glad y'all like it. I've been accused of having a warped sense of humor, and sometimes, it gets out of control.
