Six Sentence Sunday — Reefcake

Every Sunday I share Six Sentences from one of my books or current WIP

Today it’s from my historical mermen romance, Reefcake. Joanna’s leaped from a pirate ship into the ocean and is about to perish when a surprise in the ocean saves her.

Her brain fogged over, the dampened sounds of battle pitching to a whine. She scrabbled at her throat as if that could bring air to it, but there was naught to be found. Give in. Give up. It was the last option afforded to her, after all.

On the edge of darkness, as the shadow of death crept over her stilling limbs, she felt a hand grab her shoulder. A face stern as a mountain drifted into hers. She felt a touch of lips to hers and then nothing.
