We had another busy week here at Killer Crafts & Crafty Killers. Special thanks to this week’s guest authors, Janie Reinart and Kari Townsend, who graciously offered copies of their books to some lucky readers who posted comments this week. The winner of Janie’s Love You More Than You Know is Suzie Tullett. The winner of Kari's Corpse in the Crystal Ball is Marguerite Lafayette. Ladies, please email me at anastasiapollack@gmail.com to make arrangements for receiving your books.

Today we’re also participating once again in Six Sentence Sunday. Today’s six sentences are from Finding Hope, one of author Lois Winston’s Emma Carlyle romances. Finding Hope was a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart finalist (under the title Liberating Hope.)

Every neuron in my brain sputtered to a halt at the sound of that deep baritone. The man didn’t speak his words; he caressed them. Think James Earl Jones blended with Patrick Stewart and just the slightest dash of Sean Connery. Ben’s voice flowed with a richness of tone and timbre that sent my insides galloping. Reason deserted me as my mouth went dry and my ability to think came to a screeching halt. I stared at his extended hand, incapable of moving a muscle or kick-starting my own tongue.

Finding Hope is currently available for Kindle, Nook, and on Kobo.
