Snippet Sunday: 99 cents summer contemporary romance: Arrow Through The Heart #wewriwa

Hi all, I'm participating in the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday. This month, I'll be taking snippets from my sweet summer romance, Arrow Through The Heart . You can find the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday list at:

About this snippet:  Logan is going to take Ella for a boat ride. 


Logan drove his convertible to the inn and grabbed their food basket from the kitchen before heading to the marina.

"Have you ever played Serena?" he asked.

She laughed, her ponytail bouncing in the wind. "No, not yet. We're ranked according to skills and have to do certain tournaments before getting to the elite level. A lot depends on your age, the tournaments, your skill, and a little bit of luck."

"Sounds complicated." Logan parked his car, put the canvas top up, and led Ella down the dock to his boat. He settled Ella inside, gave her a safety briefing, and began unhooking the ropes that secured the boat to the dock.

A slight chill brushed against the back of his neck. 


Summer vacation and the Fourth of July brings Ella to New Hampshire while participating in a tennis competition. Logan is an innkeeper's son who bumps into Ella and invites her for an ice cream. Attraction flares and they enjoy spending time together, but each has their own plans for their life. Then disaster strikes Ella. Can a summer attraction truly become a lasting relationship?

  1. Sounds like the beginnings of a romantic moment, except for that chill ...

  2. I assume that the chill is a real presentiment.

  3. He felt a chill for a reason...wonder what that is? Good snippet. Tweeted.

  4. A slight chill brushed against the back of his neck

    Awesome hook, Stephanie.

    I also enjoyed the flow. You spent time on the right details. Nicely done!
