Six Sentence Sunday

Welcome to my first Six Sentence Sunday post!

These six sentences are from my most recent release, Rule of Three:


I don’t think I can do this. The words seemed loud in her head, but she hadn’t spoken them out loud. Determination to be bad, to show Dag, the rebel, she could be bad too, mingled with a desire to equally prove to Chris that she wasn’t shocked by the revelation about his past, and she was just as up for naughty fun as he was.

But uncertainty weakened her knees, made her hands tremble. She had no idea what to do. The arousal that had heated her earlier had been crowded out by nerves.

Review for Rule of Three

Just had to share - this isn't the first review for Rule of Three, got that one from
Sizzling Hot Book Reviews before it was even released! But I thought this one from  Fresh Fiction was really cool. I appreciate the reviewers comment about the cover. I love the cover, don't get me wrong, I think it's striking and beautiful, but it's true that the models in the image don't look anything like I describe the characters in the book. But that often happens with covers. I like covers that evoke a mood and this one definitely does!

Fresh Fiction says:

"RULE OF THREE is a beautifully written modern love story. Much like modern design esthetics, it's deceptively simple, with clean and simple lines. While the erotica element is prominent, it is ultimately a romance that expands the definition of "couple" to include three people. I was drawn to the three main characters; they are strong, loving, independent, and utterly comfortable in who they are and what they want. They have clear identities in both their personal and professional lives. The relationships, particularly that of Kassidy and Dag who are meeting for the first time, are given the attention needed to make the desire for a committed relationship believable. Their personal and professional conversations felt genuine. If there is one thing I didn't like about this book it's the cover. I point it out because the three androgynous, waif-thin models on the cover may invoke the wrong expectation in potential readers. Don't let the cover put you off. RULE OF THREE is a wonderful story between thirty-somethings who are established professionally and are discovering a new kind of fulfillment in their personal lives.

I'm already on the hunt for Kelly Jamieson's earlier books to see what I've missed. I can't wait to see what's next."
