Sweet Saturday Sample: Never Trust a Pretty Wolf

Welcome to Sweet Saturday Sample.  Today's sample comes from Never Trust a Pretty Wolf.  Please leave me a comment.  I'd love to know what you think. 

Liesel Wolf has a secret, a dangerous secret she’ll go to any lengths to conceal. When she’s paired in a charity game with sexy marshal Andy Bryce, a man with secrets of his own, her carefully constructed world comes crashing down, and Liesel’s on a collision course with her past.

Excerpt: In this excerpt, my heroine is trying to escape Marshal Andy Bryce.

After parking in the airport’s long-term parking area, she

made her way to the terminal. Since the police knew about the

body in the cave, Liesel Wolf probably couldn’t buy a ticket, but

Leslie Cochran could. She bought a ticket to Montreal, inwardly

wincing about paying such an exorbitant price, then decided to get

something to eat. Her plane didn’t leave for two hours, and she was

starving to death. No wonder. She hadn’t eaten in some time.

She got in line at one of the eateries in the airport and

bought herself a cheeseburger and a drink After she finished her

meal, she went looking for something to read. As she strolled down

the concourse, she found a bookstore selling the latest Elaine

Cantrell novel. The clerk had just taken her money when someone

tapped her shoulder.

She turned around, her heart in her throat.
Stay impassive,

she reminded herself. Seconds later she hoped she wouldn’t fall to

the floor in a dead faint because Andy Bryce stood there staring at

her. “Yes?” she said, arching her eyebrows inquiringly.

“It was surprisingly easy to find you.”

“I’m sorry, but you seem to have made a mistake. My name

is Leslie Cochran.”

For a moment she saw doubt in his eyes, but only for a

moment. “Your disguise is very good. You almost got away with it.

Now come with me quietly, or I’ll handcuff you and drag you out

of here.”

Liesel did neither. Instead, she screamed at the top of her

lungs. “Help! Help me, someone! Help!”

Great scene! I like Liesel's quick reaction -- putting Andy on the defensive -- but will it work? I also smiled at "the latest Elaine Cantrell novel." I did something similar in my WIP by including a friend's name. Fun, isn't it?

Got to love the free plug you put in.
Great hook at the end
