Six Sentence Sunday - 3/27/11

More from Love By Design - just a few minutes later - the meeting with the network executives is about to begin....


Russ leaned back in the chair looking as though he was the star of the show and not an unwanted interloper. How could he be so relaxed when she was wound tighter than a bad celebrity facelift? Victoria tilted her head from side to side. Despite her misgivings, she wished his tanned hands were busy massaging her shoulders instead of tossing a paper weight into the air and catching it with the flair of a Las Vegas magician - so unprofessional.
God, he rubbed her the wrong way. She looked away before she started thinking about him rubbing her the right way.
