Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors



My virtual book tour for Fortuna starts today. I'm giving a nice prize, doing interviews, and sharing excerpts. Today I'm featured at Harps Romance Reviews. Stop by and see me and tell me if you liked my excerpt. It's based on a real life event that happened to my son and me. 

Welcome to Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors, you chance to sample the work of a talented group of authors. When you finish you, go to the following for more snippets.

I'm skipping some text here and jumping to the point where Kurt picks Susan up for their date. The snippet is in his POV.


EXCERPT:

Susan smiled again and made his heart beat a little faster. Man, she was pretty! Her honey blonde hair gleamed under the overhead lights. She wore it short, and it looked so cute with the ends turned under. Was she wearing contacts? If not, she had the most vivid blue eyes he’d ever seen. What word would describe her skin? Maybe velvet would do. Yeah, velvet the color of the palest pink in a seashell. She was tall too, maybe five nine, with great legs and a bottom that had the sexiest curve he had seen in a long time. He forced himself to stop staring.

Blurb:
Susan English can’t stand Robin Lanford! She’s so full of herself she irritates everyone on the faculty of Fairfield High. When Robin bets Susan fifty dollars that she can’t get a date with Kurt Deveraux, the head football coach, Susan jumps at the chance to put the little heifer in her place. She had no idea that teaching Robin a lesson would irrevocably change her life, strain treasured friendships, and throw two families into chaos.

She's definitely caught his eye. Now I know something has to go terribly wrong.
