Snippet Sunday: 99 cent contemporary romance: A Polish Heart #snippetsunday

Hi all, I'm participating in the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday. This month, I'll be taking snippets from my sweet contemporary romance, perfect for the Easter season, A Polish Heart. You can find the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday list at:



This snippet:      Darrin makes an observation.

*****
As soon as they left the office, Mr. Dracek struck up a very animated conversation with Sofia. She replied when appropriate, but her voice was more measured. Darrin was curious as to what Dracek was talking to her about. He seemed almost familiar with her and the tone of his voice was protective.

Could he be her boyfriend?

The thought was like a punch in the gut. Mr. Dracek opened his office door and Darrin reached out, gently touching her elbow. "Are you all right?"

This snippet has been modified to fit the 8 sentence limit. 


"A Polish Heart" is a sweet contemporary romance.  Darrin Riverton, an architect from the United States is assigned to a challenging project which requires a trip to Poland. Sofia Buraczynski is assigned as his translator and his first sight of her heats his blood.


With Sofia as his guide, Darrin discovers Poland and many new things about himself, as well. When a chance is presented for him to remain in Poland, will he leave behind family and all that is familiar to follow his heart?

  1. I think he is going to have to learn more Polish, and fast!

  2. Great insight into her mindset. Hopefully she is just a relative and they aren't romantically involved, for our heroine's sake! Great eight!

  4. Interesting snippet -- I like the way the situation is shown through his eyes, leaving us wondering as it does him.

  5. Effective piece of interior monologue. I think everyone has been in the position of watching a conversation from afar and wondering what's going on.

  8. Thanks everyone for stopping by. Darrin was very much caught off guard by Sofia's interaction with Mr. Dracek. There's more next week.
