Welcome friends new and old. I missed you last week. I hope you missed me too. This is the last week, for now, that I’ll be sharing from In the Blind. You’ll see it again, if I sell it. My fingers are crossed.

In the Blind (working title), and you can see the past posts from this WIP here. The Logline: When a head hunter finds her dream lover in a night of pitch black unrestrained passion, she fears she’ll never find him again. Fate steps in and throws the two together, but they might never discover the truth and stay in the blind.

Over the past many weeks I’ve shared Jane’s experience at Club Blind and her business opportunity that put her back in touch with Rob. Rob isn’t keen on Jane’s job opportunity. It’s for the company his ex-wife works for.  Last Post Rob decided he wasn’t letting Jane get away or the opportunity she presented. In this week’s post, they’re on their way to the interview when Rob decides he better tell her about his ex-wife.

As they neared an alley, he took her hand and steered her around the corner into the empty lane.

“What are you doing?” She looked at him like he’d lost his mind.

“I need to tell you about my ex.”

“No, you really don’t.”

“Jane, let me share this with you.” He stroked her face and tucked a strand of hair behind her ear. It was an intimacy he had no right to, but one he wanted.

Will he earn her trust or scare her away? <If you want, you can Tweet That>

Hope you enjoyed my eight today. Thank you so much for visiting me, it means a lot to me that you took the time to visit my little place on the web. Don’t forget to check out the other Weekend Warriorsand Saturday Spankings too.

  1. I’m wondering whether or not that gesture he made at the end will remind her of Club Blind and will she realize who he is? This is such an interesting story! Crossing my fingers for you as well.

  2. S.J. Maylee: master (mistress?) of the cliffhanger snippet! Wondering if there is more than the average baggage going on regarding the ex-wife. Good luck on selling this one. :o)

  3. Love that “an intimacy he had no right to” like. Super! I agree with the rest of the comments that it was a dirty trick to stop there! GAH! What’s she gonna do?

  4. I have been MIA for a bit, so I need to catch up on your excerpts, but this one was great! I loved the last line.

  5. Oh you tease to stop right there! Great snippet, SJ. I want to know what’s the big deal about the ex and what she’ll say. 🙂

Whatcha thinking?
