Saturday Spankings





Welcome all -  another beautiful summer day here.  Hope it's the same where you are hanging today. Also, a reminder, there's a book party happening today at noon.  Be sure to stop by - they are offering prizes.
  
 Today, I'm sharing eight sentences (can you believe it, I'm following the rules) from FLYING HIGH. It is the story of two people meeting and trying to work out a cross-country relationship. After finding each other, romance blossoms but it is not all smooth sailing. Working though relationship snags, including someone from Derek's past who threatens their new found happiness, Jill and Derek find the road to love isn't always easy.

In this scene, Jill and Derek have married and are settling into life in their new home in Dallas.  Thinking all is well and Derek's stalker is confined to a mental hospital for stalking and threatening Jill's life.  She picks up the mail at their new address and her world gets turned upside down when she sees a note in writing she doesn't recognize.

" she opened it, pulled out the note and something fluttered to the floor. When she read the note, she turned white. The note read, Don't think I am through with you. I'm still watching. She bent down to pick up the item that had landed on the floor and it was one of those funeral cards with her name on it. She felt the hairs standing up at the back of her neck and her whole body tensed. Scared didn't begin to cover what she was feeling. Instinct made her hand cover her belly to protect the life she was carrying.



FLYING HIGH is available in all digital formats at LSF Publications.  If you are interested, other books can be purchased by clicking the pictures on the side. All can also be found at Amazon.com

  1. I loved this book - the get together right up and through the marriage. Stalkers do add a creepy element to any book.

    1. Yes, it's scary to think that someone other than Big Brother is watching your every move.

  3. That just gave me goosebumps - the scary kind! Hey, you changed your blog background. It looks really great. I've been around not so much lately with the kids home for summer break and I think I missed the change. Hope you're having a good summer Leigh.

    That's just a whole other level of fear there, isn't it? Nice job on this one, Leigh.
