Welcome to another Sunday Snippet, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme.
This week’s snippet is from CUP OF SUGAR, my new hot contemporary. This bit follows shortly after last week’s. (There’s a pretty funny scene in between, but it’s too long for the Sunday Snippet. Click here to read more.) In today’s bite-size excerpt, Nia has accepted her neighbor’s offer of a lift after her car died, and she’s about to get into Conn’s truck for a six-hour drive to her parents’ house. Maybe. 😉
Nia’s hands shook as she locked the house. But the shaking had nothing on the wild thumping in her chest when she stepped out her back door and came face to face with her hunky neighbor. The guy she’d purposely been avoiding since she took possession of her house back in April. The man who’d been one half of a committed couple when she put the offer on this place, but who was most definitely single by the time she moved in. There were more stray women around his house than there were stray cats. Of course, his massive dog kept the felines at bay. Whereas Conn’s massive everything attracted the women.
And yes, she did mean everything — he really ought to install blinds in his bathroom.

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.
