We have an unwanted house guest this weekend — her name is Sandy — and if she keeps me off the computer I will catch up with your blogs and comments as soon as I am able. Here’s to electricity and internet, LOL!
Last week, we saw former detective Rhys escape an attack — one that only fueled Nick’s suspicions there’s something she’s not telling him. Remember, Nick and Rhys have a combative relationship. Also of note, her “death” the day before had been reported on the local news, which explains his initial response in the six.
Immediately prior to this six, he asks if she’s on a case. Her response is that she is NOT, after which he says this:
“Fair assumption, considering your untimely demise. Technicalities aside . . .”
Rhys wanted to keep her cards close, but somehow they’d been set up. She didn’t yet know how her being shot tied into Nick’s arrival in town, but the timing was suspect, at best. Someone forced her hand, and with any luck, together she and Nick could figure out who and why.
They didn’t have to like it.

She’s going to have to start trusting him with what she’s up to at some point! Great 6 🙂

Great line to leave off with. 🙂

Nothing beats putting two people who loathe each other through hell to make them warm to each other. 🙂 Grand stuff.
LOL! Thanks, Elin!
Great six. I hope she tells him soon.

I love a story where they have to work through hating each other before they fall in love! Great six.
Me, too! Thanks so much, Krystal!
Hope you stay safe! Nice six…nice build-up.
Thanks so much, Ana, on both counts!

They don’t have to like it—but I bet they will! But how soon is she going to trust him with her secret? I hope it’s soon. It sounds dangerous enough now! Great six!
LOL. Thank you, Jenna!

Sandy’s coming to town here, too. Closing in. Good six, Sarah and good luck w/Sandy.

Love the last line. Lots of tension. Will keep you in my thoughts as Sandy progresses. Stay safe!
Thank you so much, Patricia!
Monica Enderle Pierce said:
You’re so good at milking the tension out of every word and these are no exception!
Amazing compliment, Monica. Thank you!
Good situation for torturing your characters. (Sandy’s on the opposite coast here, but when I turned on the computer and had no internet connection initially I did worry about a possible cable break with the tsunami warning last night.)
I heard about that – scary! I’m glad everything was okay with it. Thanks for visiting!

Stay safe from the hurricane! Your last line was brilliant, what a hook!
Thanks so much! (And thank goodness the hurricane didn’t hurt us. Just our boat. A little. LOL.)

Even though I’m from hurricane land (Gulf Coast), it took me a second to realize you meant *that* Sandy. Hope all’s well.
Love these six. Especially nice, IMO, is his dry sense of humor. “Technicalities aside” Great!
LOL. I have an aunt named Sandy and every time I hear this storm’s name I think of her. ARGH. Thanks so much for your compliment. I love the dry humor myself!
Siren A. Star said:
Stay safe! I will be thinking of you! And great six! Its going to get steamy when they start trusting each other.
Thanks so much! And I certainly hope so, LOL. ;c)
I like Nick a LOT, hope she can get past whatever her issues are and trust him. Great excerpt, stay safe in that storm!!!
I love the cliffhanging last line and how the tension keeps increasing.
Thank you, Carrie-Anne!
Lorraine Paton said:
Great six! Love the way you’ve ended it. 🙂
Thanks so much, Lorraine!
And it definitely sounds like she doesn’t…for the moment. Great six, Sarah. Good luck with the storm. 🙂
Thank you very much, Siobhan!
