Gift Wrapped,  Sunday Snippets

Sunday Snippet – GIFT WRAPPED – Stamina

It’s Sunday snippet time, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme. I’m posting from my new Christmas romance, GIFT WRAPPED. If you haven’t been following along, you can catch up here.

Brinn is a recently jilted retail store manager who allowed a handsome shopper into her store at closing time on Christmas Eve to buy “one more gift, it’s kind of an emergency”. After some spark-filled banter, they’ve wrapped up the transaction, and Davis has left the store, but he stopped before he got six feet into the empty mall corridor…

Gift Wrapped book cover“Did you forget something?” she asked, doing her best to sound like a store manager, not president of the local lonely-hearts club.

“I know it’s Christmas Eve, but do you want to do something tonight?”

“What about Alicia, don’t you have plans with her?”

“Yeah, but that’ll only take five minutes.”

“Ouch—is improving your stamina on your list of New Year’s resolutions?”

His gut-deep laugh echoed through the empty mall corridor. Then, alpha as hell, he stalked back to the door. “I don’t do resolutions, but if I did, improving my stamina wouldn’t need to be one of them.”

After catching her boyfriend cheating two weeks before Christmas, Brinn is seriously lacking in holiday spirit. So when she looks into the eyes of a last-minute shopper after closing on Christmas Eve, she’s sarcastic rather than sympathetic. But Brinn is ever the good girl and her conscience wins out. She offers the handsome stranger ten minutes to select a gift and ends up with a present of her own—a date. On Christmas Eve.

Davis hates Christmas. Especially this year, since a neighborhood heist liberated him of his hard-earned belongings and the few gifts he’d purchased. But the robbery led him to a cute store manager with a sense of humor, smokin’ body and no plans for the evening. Mistletoe might be in order after all.

Their Christmas Eve date is like gift-wrapped, sexy satisfaction. But the best gifts keep on giving, and one naughty night may not be enough—for either of them.
