It’s July and ICING ON THE CAKE has released! Woohoo! We’ll be spending time with Curtis & Sara for the next couple months for the Sunday Snippet, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme. I hope you enjoy their fireworks!
Chapter One of ICING ON THE CAKE opens the day before Conn & Nia’s (from CUP OF SUGAR) wedding in Nia’s tiny hometown, six hours north of the city where the characters currently reside. And since Sara, the maid of honor, is conspicuously absent from the impending wedding rehearsal, Conn recruits help from his brother, the best man…
“Is she that bad?”
“I hope not,” Conn said as the church’s front door slammed and all heads turned toward the entryway from the vestibule.
Call him fucked-up, but one look at the dark-haired beauty who’d just strutted into the building, and Curtis kinda hoped Sara lived up to her troublemaker reputation.
Nia and Conn’s wedding will be fairytale perfect…if their siblings can get along.
Free-spirited, anti-establishment Sara has always been on the outside of her family’s fairytale mold. Now she’s being forced smack into the middle of it at her sister Nia’s wedding. Alongside the cocky and annoyingly sexy best man—Conn’s cop brother.
Curtis doesn’t buy in to organized romance and fairytales. But for his brother, he’ll throw on a tux and fake it for a few hours. His flak vest would have been a better choice around the maid of honor. He should have brought his handcuffs too, because somebody needs to restrain the dark-haired spitfire—and he’s just the man for the job.
One night to indulge the spark between them, then goodbye—that was the agreement. Curtis isn’t looking for a relationship and he sure doesn’t want a troublemaker for a girlfriend. The last thing Sara needs in her daily life is a cop looking over her shoulder, no matter how hot he is.
But giving in to their chemistry is much more fun than giving it up…
