Yea! It’s Sunday and time for Six Sentence Sunday

Every week participants post six sentences from something they are writing – or have written. It’s a lot of fun and really a great way to meet new writers!

And I’ve met some terrific people. Thank you !

Be sure to check out the other great participants and thanks so much for stopping by.

Hopefully this week I will have time to comment on more snippets.


On a dreary Sunday afternoon in response to a question from his lover, the soul collector admitted that he had dated a vampire and proceeded to tell her the story. In 1930s Chicago he met Alicia. Some of you wondered if his current mistress would be jealous. The question will be answered, but not this week.

“We studied each other, though no words were spoken aloud. I turned from her and continued toward my residence; she paced beside me.

We spent the rest of the night in bed testing each other, challenging, dueling, no holds barred, fought not with swords but with lips, tongues, finger tips; and teeth.

When she bit me she showed me her world; of shadows and the excitement of the hunt with the triumph of the prey’s capture. It was intoxicating and addictive.

I probably would have carried on seeing her if she had not sniffed me out the next night while I was working.”


The Devil’s Mistress, a paranormal romance, is about an unlucky in love woman and a man who works in mid-management for the Devil. He’s the one who dispatches souls to his boss, Mr. D. She vows to restore her lover’s humanity and not lose him in the process. The story is told entirely from her point of view.

    Intriguing question–would she be jealous of a 1930s era vampire ex? On one hand that would definitely an affair that’s history. But there’s no accounting for human emotions. How he and the vampire broke up might make a difference. Suspenseful six!

  2. Gem Sivad says:

    Seems like he’s adjusted to her one night stand and toss aside. Great way to show his “almost” human side. 😀

  3. J.C. Martin says:

    Sounds like it was short-lived affair, although that vampire chick sure sounds hot! Loved your description of their night together and his experiences when she bit him.

  4. Cate Masters says:

    Love the voice in this, especially the last line. Great teaser.

  5. jennajaxon says:

    I do like this sexy devil of yours. His voice can be passionate, then turn on a dime to the cold businessman as in the last sentencte. Great six, Sue!

  6. Alix Cameron says:

    Great voice, and very sexy six.

  7. With that information, I’m really curious as to how the girlfriend will react. Nice six! 🙂

  8. Very interesting snippet. What is she? 😉

  9. Juli Hoffman says:

    NICE! Six Sentence Steamy! 😉

  10. Guilie says:

    Good one, Sue! I’m dying to know how/where/when she sniffed him out, and why that put a stop to the relationship–looked promising 🙂 Thanks for sharing, and thanks for stopping over at my blog–always great to have you there!

  11. Cherie Marks says:

    Such a teaser. I’m intrigued. Great six!

  12. J.A. Beard says:

    I like the casualness of the description of a relationship between two beings that are anything but normal people.

  13. still love this part 😀

  14. KE Saxon says:

    I’m with J.A., he’s so matter-of-fact about his descriptions, even though it’s got to bother the lover he’s revealing this to. Great six!
