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: Liz and Jen just showed up at Donna's apartment unexpectedly. Donna was initially miffed at their arrival - that was until she saw the reason for their visit. Jen gave her a little kitten. Donna is both excited and nervous. This snippet has been edited to fit 8 sentences.

     Donna bent down to look at the little face; her white, orange and black marbled head seemed so tiny compared to her large hands. Carefully, she began to gently pet the kitten. Almost instantly, the cat closed her eyes and began purring; Donna smiled brightly as she looked up at Liz and Jen.
     “But I can’t take all of this…” Donna started.
     “Please don’t fight us, Donna,” Jen said gently. “We know how hard things have been for you and we thought that maybe having a little companionship would be a good thing. We just wanted to do something nice for you - it’s about time someone did.” 

Hope you liked it!
Happy reading!

Aw, a nice little kitten. It seems like the last few I've tried to pet haven't gone to sleep, but wanted instead to lacerate my hands. All in good fun, of course.

Awww, I just melted at the thought of that tiny kitten purring. What a remarkable gift.

Nothing like a furry creature to warm your heart and the story.

That is so sweet. I can't wait to see the development of their relationships. What a kind thing to do.

Though I'm not sold on the idea of pets as gifts, it's a sweet gesture. Having something to take care of can make a big difference.
