This post is part of an ongoing blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Every Sunday, participating authors post eight sentences from a published work or even a WIP (work in progress). Then we hop to our fellow warriors’ blogs and check out all the fabulous fiction that’s happening! It's a great way to meet readers, writers, and your next favorite book!  :)

During the month of February, I will be posting snippets from The Ballerina. This is Liz's story, and the first in the Loving Her series.

A southern, redheaded, pickup driving lesbian ballerina? You bet! Meet Liz: a southern belle with flair. Vivacious, eclectic and graceful, she is unique to say the least. The first in the series of Loving Her stories, Liz's story is the kind that stays with you long after you've closed the book.

Background on the snippet: Liz and Jen had just had dinner together. Liz shows off her truck to Jen, and pulls into a spot with a perfect ocean view. Their understanding and expectations of the evening are polar opposite.

Silently, they watched the waves dance under the moonlight. Words would only detract from this incredible moment.
Jen quietly slid over the long vinyl bench seat until she was next to Liz, taking in this breath-taking scene.
“This is great.” Jen whispered.
“Huh?” Liz asked, turning to look at her.
Jen placed her soft hand on Liz’s face, slowly leaned in and gently kissed her.

Hope you liked it! Happy reading!
