Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors

Welcome to Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors, your chance to authors. When you've finished here, you can find more excerpts at:


Last week my hero went to my heroine's house to pick her up. Susan won her bet with Robin when Kurt asked her to go to a party with him. Last week he couldn't stop staring at her, and today we are still in his POV.

Excerpt:


“I’ve never had a beautiful woman win a football game for me. How did you know your play would work?”

Susan laughed, a musical sound that made him want to laugh with her. “I wish I could take the credit for it, but I can’t. It’s one of my dad’s plays. He coached high school football for thirty years before he retired.”

“No wonder you always enjoy football. You were raised on it. I almost killed your messenger, but I’m glad he stood his ground. Your dad’s play won the game.” 


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.

They were meant for each other--once they get down that rocky path they have to follow. :-)

Linda said...

That sounds nice. I'm sure her dad will like him too. Now what is he going to gave her for winning the game for him?

Elaine Cantrell said...

Not what you expect, Linda.

Elaine Cantrell said...

Theresa, it was a bit rocky, wasn't it?

Iris B said...

Good start for a potential relationship ... she has a good knowledge about what he loves.

T. M. Hunter said...

She just crushed all the mystery with that admission... :-)
Good snippet.

Elaine Cantrell said...

Don't worry, TM. More mystery on the way.

Veronica Scott said...

Nice moment between them! Enjoyed the snippet, love the idea she knows so much about football.

Aurora Springer said...

It's good she learned the plays from her dad.

P.T.Wyant said...

I was wondering if maybe her dad played or coached -- or was just a huge fan and she watched a lot of games with him.

Elizabeth Alsobrooks said...

She loved the game too, to have paid enough attention to have learned the plays. They have a lot in common.

Karysa Faire said...

Loved that he admitted that 1) he almost killed the messenger and 2) that he acknowledged that she 'won' the game for him! Takes a real man to admit he's wrong.

The way to a man's heart is through his football! (Although for me it would be hockey or baseball.)

Charmaine Gordon said...

Ah sweet. Love his answer.

Christina Ochs said...

They have so much in common! He should find out if she has any more (football) tricks up her sleeve. 😀

Caitlin Stern said...

Well, she paid attention and remembered the play--she should get a little credit, I think.

Amy Braun said...

I'd say she's earned some credit. Football plays are mysterious rituals to me. ;)

Lovely natural dialogue, Elaine.
I'm with Kayrsa above. Takes a confident man to pass on his glory.

I love their chemistry and how much they have in common, but I still want to know what the play was! Flea flicker? Counter trap? ;-)
