Six Sentence Sunday

Another contribution to the Six Sentence Sunday shenanigans...

As always, I'm contributing two snippets, one from each of my pseudonyms. For those not familiar with me, I write hetero erotic romance as Lauren Gallagher and M/M erotic romance as L. A. Witt.

Today, I'm posting six sentences each from my two June releases. First, from Lauren Gallagher, a little bit from
Damaged Goods, a contemporary erotic romance available June 14 from Loose Id, LLC. :

Yeah, I had everything, which was, of course, why I now reclined on a rented, rock-hard, queen-size bed, waiting for a male prostitute to show up.

No, not a prostitute. An “escort.” So said the company’s site, the woman I’d spoken to on the phone, and Kim, the friend who’d referred me to Elite Escorts to begin with. An “escort” who’d meet me in a hotel room and do anything I asked in exchange for three hundred prepaid dollars.

Not a prostitute at all.

And from L. A. Witt, a nibble of Static, my urban fantasy/shapeshifter novel due out June 26 from Amber Allure:

Eventually, somehow, he’d understand. The fact that he hadn’t turned tail and walked out after learning the truth said something. Then again, Damon was the type who’d take a stranger to the hospital if he thought they needed help. That didn’t mean he’d stick around once the danger had passed. There was nothing that said he’d stick around now that I was in the capable hands of medical professionals. He could walk away now without worrying he’d abandoned me to a life-threatening injury.

Want to play along? It’s fun and easy!
1. pick a project – a current WIP, contracted work or even something readers can buy if you’re published
2. pick six sentences
3. post ‘em on Sunday

  1. Love the rationalization in defining escort in lieu of prostitute. Really just semantics, isn't it?
