CATHY GREENFEDER (YA Paranormal romance)
"Kiss Out of Time"
She peered up from her sketch at Grandma Bess’s wide smile.
“Georgina, we’ve got company!” Then she moved back and a tall, redheaded young man of about eighteen came forward.
“You have information for me?”  The ease with which the man had caught his attention bothered Vidal.  Had this man done the same when the French soldiers arrived?”
MORGEN BAILEY (Historical Fiction)
"Sentimental Keepsake"
It was the little girl in the red jacket that Eileen remembered the most from Schindler’s List. She’d imagined it was her mother, she’d have been about the right age. 
LINDSAY DOWNS (Sensual Suspense)
With a painful groan Jessica leaned backward to stretch the kinks out of her back, relieved the project was finished. Two long hard weeks to create a replica in miniature of a bridge she’d seen a month ago in New York’s Central Park.
Nicky walked down to the beach. She had looked forward to seeing Rose so much and the disappointment to not being able to share her news immediately bugged her.

SELAH JANEL (Fairy Tale, PG-13) 
She’d already been dragged across the floor of the great hall, garbed in her finest gown and draped with her largest jewels. Derisive faces swarmed around her as she struggled and clawed at the soldiers who struggled to hang onto her thrashing limbs.  
ELIZABETH BLACK (Twisted Fairy Tale)  
Red climbed through the bramble, cutting her legs on thorns. She hated going to her grandmother's house. The old woman smelled of mothballs and served gruel for breakfast. She kept her teeth in a jar next to the sugar. Disgusting. 
KALLYSTEN (Paranormal romance) 
Relief swept through Bradan as soon as he entered Vivien’s house.Without taking one step further, he could see her, standing past a door on the other side of the kitchen. He turned back to the driveway and nodded once at Aedan, whose shoulders dropped for a second before he caught himself. 

DAVEE JONES (Romantic suspense) 

"Maria finally looked down to Sascha.  Even from her distance up the face of the rock, she observed Sascha looked peculiar as well.  “Are you ok?” Maria choked out.  Sascha looked up, her stance wobbling at the movement to look skyward. 

KATHLEEN BALL (Modern Cowboy romance)  

"Summer's Desire" 
Summer’s eyes opened and she began to push him away. Stone let go too slowly to suit her. Her heat cried out to his but all he wanted was sex. Her perfect moment had been ruined. 
LEE ANN SONTHEIMER MURPHY (Sweet Historical romance) 
"A Red Ribbon, Cherries and a Red, Red Rose"

“Hey, isn’t that the chick on the posters? The one that’s been missing for a coupla months? Had a weird name…Amaranth or something like that.”
