Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors



Welcome to Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors, your chance to sample the work of a talented group of authors. When you've finished here, you can find more excerpts at:

We know that Susan won her bet with Robin when Kurt invited her to go to a party with him. Last week they had just left for their party. I've skipped some paragraphs, and in today's excerpt they've arrived at the party.



Their host saw them come in and ran to greet them. “Kurt, my friend, welcome. Who is this lovely lady on your arm?”

“Jose Mendoza, meet Susan English.”

Mendoza took Susan’s hand and kissed it. “You are far too beautiful to waste yourself on him, Miss
English.” Mendoza dug Kurt in the ribs with his elbow and laughed with evident delight.

“Get out,” Kurt kidded. He put his arm around her and drew her close.

Susan’s knees turned to water the minute their bodies met; He has muscles in places I don’t have places. 

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.
