NaNo Day 6

Yay…my first Snippet Sunday post under my new pen name! I’m so excited. I’ve been posting quick one-liners thus far for the NaNo challenge, but today I get to share a bit more.  Here’s a little about Always the Bride:

Sometimes, ulterior motives can lead to true love…

Helping with her boss’s wedding plans is the last thing recently jilted bride Elizabeth needs while she’s hiding away to lick her wounds. Handsome photographer Grant might lure her heart out of seclusion-but can he be trusted? His motives for wooing the stubborn beauty involve her ex-fiancee’s revenge…and if he succeeds, the reward will fund college tuition for his troubled little sister. How can they get to I Do’s when Grant’s plan involves leaving her at the altar? Or has his plan–and his heart–changed?


Today’s snippet is from the opening of the book, edited down a smidge to fit the snippet format:


All around Elizabeth a sea of smiles mocked her, and she picked up one of the memories to frown down at the deliriously happy couple she no longer recognized.

The front door opened, and she turned to see Stacie frozen in place, her expression morphing from shock into horror.

“No, Lizzie, that dirt bag isn’t worth hurting yourself over!” She picked up Lizzie’s arm and frowned at the dark red smudges. “Wait.”

“Don’t worry, that’s just paint.”

“Thank god. I thought you were doing something crazy.” Her roommate’s green eyes wandered over the mass of photographs that had obliterated the living room. “Although the jury may still be out on that.”


…What did you think?
