I’m happy to share another 8 sentences from my romantic suspense, OFF THE GRID.
Caleb let her go but took her hand. Her nails short, her fingers long, they curled around his. He brought her knuckles to his lips.
“You’re going to dream of me. Nothing sweet. Those dreams are going to make you toss and turn.” His other hand brushed her cheek. “There’s heat between us and making excuses not to feel it isn’t going to satisfy either of us.”
A committed doctor to Vancouver’s inner city, nothing fazes Sophie Monroe—until a pregnant teenager shows up at her clinic on Christmas Eve requesting sanctuary and claiming the baby’s father is one of the city’s most influential businessmen. Sophie is in over her head and thankful when aid shows up in the form of an attorney who’s a little too confident and a lot too sexy.
Family Law expert Caleb Quinn just wants a date, a chance to prove he isn’t the elitist jerk Sophie assumes. Helping deliver a baby is not what he has in mind. But before long protecting a traumatized teenager and her son become his first priority. Even if saving them pits him against the baby’s father, a childhood friend. A man who will do anything to keep his dark side private.
But justice never comes cheap. Will doing the right thing cost Sophie and Caleb their reputations? Or their lives?

Ya gotta love a man with confidence. Compelling snippet!
Ooh, I liked that! She won’t be able to sleep, I predict…excellent excerpt.
He’s so sure of himself. No blurb?
Oops, some context would be nice, wouldn’t it!
I really like the premise of this. I love his confidence. Strong, but not cocky. Very nice 8!
Thanks, Lauren. That’s exactly what I was going for.
This is straight-up pillow talk, and I love it. So much nuance packed in so few sentences. Well done.
Thanks, Patricia. I’m glad it worked. It’s a lighter moment between the two before things start to fall apart.
Really attention grabbing! A lot of great tension in just 8 sentences.
Thanks, KC. It’s a favourite scene of mine.
You’re going to dream of me. Nothing sweet – – well that’s super intriguing!
Thanks, Victoria. I’m glad it comes across that way.
Well she may not get as far as dreaming. That alone might keep her awake. Unless Caleb is less mesmerizing than he thinks he is. 🙂
