Friday the 13th.
Many people consider it unlucky, but I'm going against tradition and deciding that today is going to be a lucky day!
So in the spirit of all things thirteen, I asked my fellow March release Heartwarming authors to give me thirteen sentences from their upcoming books. You can read them below!
And we didn't stop there. A bunch of our fellow Heartwarming authors are joining us to offer up copies of their releases, for a THIRTEEN book giveaway! Check out the 13-sentence excerpts from the upcoming March releases and then enter to win via the form below!
And remember - today just might be your lucky day.
Stabs of both jealousy and grief sliced through her. He’d become famous. He’d fulfilled his dream. And beneath the layers of frustration, a part of her was exceedingly proud of him. But he’d also left her, after years of shared joys and tears, when it was most convenient for him. And she’d spent the last twenty-three months trying to come to terms with the loss of him—her high-school sweetheart, the guy she’d waited for throughout army basic training and deployment, the man she’d traveled all over the United States with as they’d performed their music and chased their dreams.
Sawyer had been her soul mate. At one time she’d been closer to him than any other person on earth, her brother included. She hadn’t had many close relationships in her life, and Sawyer knew that. But she’d had him.
Until fame came calling.
He smiled at her and her stomach dipped. How did she explain the sparks whenever they were together? She’d noticed him sneaking glances at her last night, or at least she’d hoped he was. Her heart had danced, just like right now. Probably the attraction was one-sided, but she wanted to explore the heat between them.
But what if he didn’t return her feelings? She was sunk, because if he found out, then working together on her song writing would be so awkward.
The woman was hunched over the still form of the animal, as if trying to shield him from the worst of the downpour with her own body. There was a sadness about her—evident in her posture, the slope of her shoulders—that tore at his heart. When she glanced up at him with shimmering eyes, huge in her pale face, something shifted inside him.
He hoped he wasn’t too late. That he wouldn’t be deprived of the opportunity to save the animal. For the animal’s sake, as much as the woman’s.
She chuckled. “Seems like someone told me the same thing about animals once.”
Tony reached over and took her hand. His fingers traced the deep scar running across her palm. “I was right, but you had to learn the hard way.”
His feather-light touch sent chills up her arm. She snatched her hand away from him. “It may take me a while, but once I learn something, I never forget.”
“I have scars from that night, too.” He held up his own hand to reveal a matching mark.
Sabrina looked down at the sleeping child on the cot. “Funny thing about scars...the worst ones are the ones people can’t see.”
