Hump Day Hook



I know; I've not participated in a while, or even blogged.  That's what happens when your alter-ego takes over the brain for an entire month.  I was only let out long enough for edits (grumble, grumble).  Anyway, it's now December, and both Molly and I are baking, Christmas shopping, and being stressed out over which kid will get the short end of the proverbial stick this year.  It never fails; one kid always gets fewer presents than the other two.  This ever happen in your family?

Okay, I'll quit griping.  Here's a snippet from All She Ever Wanted.  An incident happened today which made me aware I wasn't far off the mark when I wrote this, and the sequel Class Reunion should be hitting the virtual shelves any given moment now, so enjoy:)


 “Wait a minute. Back up, Denton. First of all, I got hauled into the manager’s office for being in the men’s locker room, and fraternizing with a member. Next, I get a lovely choice: Quit or be fired.” Amber set her half-empty wineglass on the stove and ticked her fingers. “Third, I go to your apartment and get told by your father that you’ve decided to move forward with your plans to replace him as CEO, and that I’m not ‘suitable companionship’ anymore. Suddenly, you don’t return my phone calls, and then the box arrives. Finally, another scene with your father offering me money to never see you again. So don’t stand there and ask me where we went wrong!”

“Yeah, and we’ve also established that he lied to both of us.” Marc downed the rest of his drink in one gulp and set the empty crystal glass on the granite island.  “Screw him.” 

All She Ever Wanted available at Freya's Bower, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble:)

See you next week!

Very interesting. Sounds like they've got a problem... but I do love that tell-it-like-it-is type of heroine.
