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!  :)

Things are heating up in August! So for this month, we're looking at the scorching hot Donna from the Loving Her series.

Donna White is one tough cop. Behind the badge, though, is a very sweet, sad, sensitive soul. Truly a woman alone, Donna is simply trying to navigate her way through life. Who is Donna? She is dedicated, determined, distinctive and deep. Donna’s rich and touching story is second in the Loving Her series. 

Background on the snippet: Donna' heart has just been broken by Heather, a woman that Donna loved deeply. Feeling completely abandoned and alone, Donna sought out Linda - someone that Heather had introduced her to. Donna felt a kinship with Linda from the moment they met, so she thought she might find a friend in Linda. Here, Donna approaches Linda, and her emotions get the best of her.

     “Dude, what did she do to you?!” Linda stepped forward again.
     “I loved her. I was about to tell her I loved her and then she told me she was moving. She said there was nothing between us and that I suck in bed and I knew that we weren’t going anywhere and that this was nothing and...” Donna rambled. “My parents are dead and I work a lot and I have no friends…” Tears rolled down her face while she blubbered endlessly.

Hope you liked it!
Happy reading!

To overuse a cliche, Heather really did a number on her. Hoping she gets the comfort she needs from Linda - although if Linda was Heather's friend that might be an awkward position for her. Good snippet.

The lady indeed has problems if she's reduced to blubbering.

Passionate and wonderful, Lauren. She expressed herself so well.

Oh, I really feel for her! I can also sense that Linda is a good friend.
My brother Adam was that friend for me back when I was going through a string of Mr. Wrongs following my divorce. I hope I was that friend for him during his twenty-one year stint with Mr. Wrong, who broke his heart a million times.
Thankfully, we've now both found our Mr. Right!
It's rare to see a GLBT cop story. I'm intrigued!
