This week’s Six Sentences come from my upcoming release “Eternally & Evermore”, which tells the story of Will and Amy, star-crossed teen lovers who fate tears apart for twenty years only to throw them back together to cause chaos in both their lives.
These six come from a scene at the school reunion when they meet up in their thirties and is the start of their problems. They have slipped out of the hall into the gardens and shared a tender yet passionate kiss.
This isn’t the official cover, it’s one I knocked together as I was writing the book. The cover girl is a porn star – can you believe that? Her name is Lexi Belle and after I altered her eye colour she looks just like I imagined Amy to be. Gorgeous, isn’t she? I love the way she is staring right down the camera.
“I just needed to know if it was still there. Us, the spark, the connection,” she whispered.
“And was it?”
“Was it ever – more’s the pity.”
“Why do you say that?”
“Because life would have been some much less complicated if it wasn’t.”
