Thanks for visiting again for Six Sentence Sunday.
In today's snippet from I Do. . .or Die, Shelby is reflecting on an unexpected passionate interlude between her and Detective Ryan Nichols. Although they had agreed not to do anything about their attraction until after the case is over, it's not proving easy, for either of them.
He was back to being Detective Nichols, the one who had told me that whatever happened was up to me. So if I chose, I could walk away. Yeah, like that would ever happen. Once I was done with Detective Sexy Pants, he'd be lucky if he didn't have to retire early with a disability pension.
Ryan finally pulled into the driveway, and I was ready to bolt out of the car and grab the garden hose, dousing the flames he continued to ignite in me. I had a feeling it wouldn't do any good, though, because it felt like he'd fired up one of those trick birthday candles that won't extinguish no matter how many times you try.
