My last post was all about issues and ideas - jump HERE if you want to see what I'm talking about - but today I'm taking things a little easier. Welcome to another round of #MFRWHooks, where a group of bloggers get together and share tiny little snippets of their current releases. Below is a snippet from my $0.99 novella, Between the Sheets. This happens in the first scene, when our heroine Maggie is out for a beer with her best friend Krista. Maggie hasn't had a date in a while, and Krista has a problem with that...
“You know what I love?” Krista started yapping as soon as the waitress left. “The feeling when a guy first slides himself in, you know?” She faked a shiver. “You might not remember this, but the first long thrust, when everything is tight and you have to work it in. It’s so…yum.”
Aw, now she’s playing the sexy card. I blinked once. Twice. I fought to keep my eyes from widening and bit down on the tip of my tongue. Hard. She did the fake shiver thing again, her chin jittering on the inhale. I couldn’t help myself. I laughed, coming very close to snorting beer out my nose.
“You are so full of shit.”
Maggie called that right. Krista's full of something!
Maggie does find the opportunity to change her dateless status - it's a romance, after all - and if you'd like to find out how, check out one of the buy links below. And while you're at it, check out the linky list of all the other participating bloggers. There's some fun stuff out there!
Life for music teacher Maggie Schafer has been full of flat notes lately. Sick of being single and celibate, she vows to get her groove back at the upcoming Western Washington Choral Directors Annual Retreat.
Too bad the only guy who seems interested is a pompous dork who thinks he’s God’s gift to women—and the music education world. When he gets a little too arrogant and crosses boundaries, gorgeous pianist Randy Devers swoops in to run interference. After sharing a shockingly hot kiss in front of the whole conference, Maggie and Randy come up with a plan to pretend they’re dating.
However, the more time they spend together—and the more physical their “pretend” relationship gets—the more she wonders if there could be anything beyond just smoking chemistry and a friendly agreement between them.
Maggie’s got history, Randy’s got baggage, and they’ve got a weekend to get their rhythms in sync and figure out how to turn their solo lives into a beautiful duet.
