Six Sentence Sunday July 29

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.


Last week I gave you the first half of the preface for my new WIP Misfits. This week is the second half.

Last week people wanted to know what Gideon knew. He knew that secrets are not a good thing in a relationship. Why four misfit couples in one territory? That’s what the story is about 😀


Long-term romantic liaisons with mortals by members of the Devil’s mid-management team were forbidden by the Regulations.

It did permit sexual encounters with humans, not to exceed 30 days with one individual.

However, in regards to the four agents concerned, they had been with their partner for ten years in one case, two years for two of the couples and only one month for Gideon and Phoebe.

They were the newlyweds as Gideon’s friends liked to tease them.

But it wasn’t until much later, after Phoebe was introduced to the rest of the group, that she learned the unique nature of their quandary.

Now they must find a solution to the problem.


Thanks for putting up with me 🙂

    I’d like to know how Phoebe suspected the unique nature. She’s got a curious eye and is observant. Their relationships sound like hell. (Pun intended) 🙂 Good six!!

  2. Gemma Parkes says:

    This is an interesting story, you have a really good imagination!

  3. Cara Bristol says:

    “Not to exceed 30 days with one individual.” LOL. The devil tries to get people to break the rules, but has specific ones of his own. Classic.

  4. K.E. Saxon says:

    Clearly, breaking the Devil’s rules can be deadly. This is definitely going to get intense. Love where you’re going with this story. Great six!

  5. The characteristics of this story and the rules that people are to follow (and don’t) are just fantastic here. It’s such a great premise and you carry it out with such a dry, effective tone. I love it.

  6. Wow, that’s interesting. Really nice 🙂

  7. Carrie-Anne says:

    Very interesting rules! Great six.

  8. J.A. Beard says:

    I’m amused, but not surprised, that Hell is overly controlled by regulations. 🙂

  9. Mae Clair says:

    I loved what Cara said. The 30-day rule was the first thing that jumped out at me. How utterly unique, questionable, and intriguing!

  10. sue says:

    Okay so now you and Cara will help me with this lol

  11. Gem Sivad says:

    Love this world your building. I find it very “hellish”. 😀

  12. T.F.Walsh says:

    Difficult relationship… but the best kind to read about.

  13. Elin Gregory says:

    This sets up an interesting scenario. I’m wondering what the penalties are when they get found out 🙂

  14. Kate Warren says:

    Now I’m wondering how these relationships have been hidden or if there’s a waiver option for outstanding achievement in their field. Cause if a few of them are cleared for relationships, that could make a few of the non-cleared ones rather put out. Does the Devil play favorites?

  15. Jenna Jaxon says:

    Such food for thought you’ve given us! Either someone’s breaking rules or Mr. D’s playing favorites, or he has a “couples clause.” Of course, the devil can do what he wants, but I’m wondering what exactly their quandary is. Waiting for more now.

Aw come on say something....
