Six Sentence Sunday 8/14

It’s Sunday! Woot! Click HERE to check out the other authors participating this week.

This week’s snippet is from my wip Star Struck. Our hero has just met our heroine for the first time.

She was even more stunning up close—her long hair a mess of auburn waves and curls falling down to the middle of her back. Small twigs and little flecks of grass sprouted from her head as if she’d barrel-rolled down a tall hill on her way to him. She wore a long, flowing sundress and sandals that looked like she should be on the beaches of Maui instead of in the middle of Central Park.

“Sorry,” she said. Her gaze met his and he could tell instantly that her eyes were most likely her best feature, even if he couldn’t make out the color. There was a quality about them that captivated him, making it impossible to break her gaze.
