First, DANCE WITH ME is featured on RomCon this week! It was scheduled for June 28th, but posted early, so if you haven’t already read it, pop by and make a comment to win a copy in the format of your choice.
Next, let’s do a snippet from FIGHT FOR ME, second in The Everetts of Tyler series.
She jerked her hands from her friend’s grasp. “It’s not like that. He’s just here to heal, and then he goes back home.”
“And home is where, exactly?”
“So, forty minutes from you?”
“When you put it like that…” she trailed off, not sure where she was going with the thought.
Rochelle shot her a scathing look. “Cassidy Everett, I have never known you to be a coward.”
“I’m not being a…” She stopped, not allowing herself to think about Rochelle’s point. “Let’s just get that flippin’ plea agreement figured out and put this case to bed.”
With a sigh, Rochelle sat back down at her desk. “Fine, but ignoring the problem never makes it go away.”
“I’m ignoring you anyway.”
“Me, you can ignore. Six and half feet of muscled white man at your house? Honey, you can’t ignore that.”
“I can sure try.”
Just for fun, maybe we’ll do a snippet from SPEEDING, too. Chapter 12 is coming along, and should be finished and posted by the end of the month. Thanks for hanging in there with me for the loooooong stretches between chapters! This snippet is from Chapter 10.

She anchored her hands in his hair, staring into his deep blue eyes as she said, “We will be amazing parents to Annie and anybody else we’re blessed with.” She kissed him sweetly before pulling away to give him a wicked smile. “Until then, why don’t we practice?”
