Today's excerpt is from one of my newly finished manuscript called Flood. If something doesn't ring right give a yell. In this excerpt my heroine is being chased by two men, one an upstanding member of the community, and the other an ex-convict. She has agreed to go tubing down the river with the ex-convict.
Jason ignored Caleb. “If you’re determined to do this thing, Aria, maybe I should go with you.”
Should she laugh or get mad, and what on earth could she say to Jason? If she and Caleb were only friends, it wouldn’t matter if Jason came with them or not, but if, as she suspected, they were on the verge of becoming something more, she didn’t want him horning in.
Her eyes cut to Caleb whose face might have been carved of granite for all the expression he showed. All except for his eyes. They burned with dislike and resentment. If she let Jason come, Caleb wouldn’t forget it anytime soon.
