Six Sentence Sunday 7-3-11 The Baby Left Behind

This week I am posting a snippet from one of my contemporary romances, The Baby Left Behind.  This is my second snippet with Dr. Aaron Kendall, who hopes to adopt the abandoned preemie and Jamie Sinclair, an image consultant, who is the baby's aunt. She promised her dying sister she would find the baby she left behind and raise him as her own.  From Chapter 2, they are on their way to the special care nursery.


          She considered telling him he could use some help in the image department.  Like a total personality makeover.  She could not imagine such an arrogant man taking care of babies.
             "Can you quit?" he asked as the elevator doors opened on third floor and she followed him down a hall where the walls were decorated with characters from nursery rhymes.
            "Quit what?" she asked.
            "Your job making people look good."

Happy 4th of July!  Have a safe holiday and I appreciate all your comments!
