Welcome back for another eight-sentence snippet, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme.
This week’s bite-sized excerpt is from CUP OF SUGAR, and follows very soon after last week’s offering. Forced off the road by a horrible snowstorm, Conn and Nia have just walked into the only available motel room they could find — and discovered it only has one bed. Conn has graciously offered the bed to Nia and stated that he’ll take the couch. Nia is assessing the piece of furniture (which is actually a loveseat and does not have a pull-out bed) and Conn, as he bends over to untie his boots.
His boot thudded to the floor and he straightened. Returned to full height, he looked down at her with unadulterated mischief. “Have some faith, sweetheart.”
“On the couch.” Shit, now her cheeks were on fire. Meaning he’d for sure think she’d been referring to his cock—in her. Great, just great.
CUP OF SUGAR is available now for just $2.99
Nia has one rule—don’t date neighbors. Simple, except the guy next door is single, handsome, and not inclined to close his blinds while naked. When her car dies, Conn takes “being neighborly” to a new level by offering a ride to her long-distance destination. Nia has resisted his looks and charm for months. Surely she can handle a few hours in his truck…
For months, Conn has blatantly put himself on display, hoping his pretty blonde neighbor would tire of secretly watching and come knock on his door for a cup of sugar—or more. No such luck—until an unusual opportunity arises. After a six-hour drive turns into a sweet-and-sexy weekend, Conn wants more than neighborly status with Nia. To get it, he must convince her to break the rule protecting her heart—by putting his on the line.
