Sunday Snippet—CUP OF SUGAR—Tight Fit

This week’s Sunday snippet from CUP OF SUGAR follows hot (and I do mean hot) on the heels of last week’s excerpt. Neighbors who’ve found themselves on a spontaneous New Year’s Eve road trip, Conn and Nia have been forced to spend the night together in a motel room that has only one bed…

Cup of Sugar

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.
