Snippet Sunday: 99 cents! A Polish Heart, contemporary romance #weekendwritingwarriors #snippetsunday

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


A tall, handsome man with broad shoulders, wearing a long-sleeved polo shirt, walked toward her holding a bouquet of poppies and orchids. 
Her teeth nipped at her lower lip as she ran her eyes over this beautifully proportioned man, her body warming at the sight of him. He looked tough and lean, and his handsome face kindled with a sort of classical beauty she hadn't seen on a man before. His leonine stride radiated self-confidence. His hair was sandy blond in a short, neat cut and his cobalt blue eyes pierced her professional armor. 
He stopped in front of her and held out his flowers, "Dzien dobry." 
A wide grin crossed her lips and she dropped the sign she was holding, "Hello, Mr. Riverton." 
A look of relief passed over his face, "You know, I practiced that phrase all morning on the plane." 



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?

5 Stars, Tara Manderino, Amazon Reader, “A totally enjoyable read.”
 5 Stars, Nancy Levine, Amazon Reader, “My grandfather was from Poland, but I have never been there, so I enjoyed reading about it as well as the customs about the Easter basket, etc.”
5 Stars, Billie Houston, Amazon Reader, “I love the warm-hearted tale.” 


  1. It looks as though Sofia is very attracted from the start. A promising romance? Good snippet.

  2. Wonderful description, Stephanie. A find specimen of a man. :-)

  3. I remember this story! I enjoy his earnestness over trying to learn the language...great snippet.

  4. It would be interesting to see how well this has sold in Poland. I remember hearing how ravenous Polish readers are for romance. Back when I was with Silhouette, writers hoped their books would be translated into Polish.

  5. Handsome and thoughtful enough to learn the language. This guy has promise! :-) Enjoyed the snippet and the wonderful description. Look forward to reading more.

  6. Thank you for stopping by. I hope to have more snippets during the months. I hope the story will find an audience in Poland, this is the time of year for it, but only time will tell.
