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 finish here, you can find more snippets at:

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.

We know that Susan won her bet with Robin when Kurt asked her to go to a party with him. At the party they drank too much tequila and ended up staying the night with their host. There's only one bed, and the room is cold. We're in Susan's POV.

How nice of him to offer to keep her warm. Susan spooned against him, and after a few minutes of snuggling she felt toasty warm.

“You feel good against me,” Kurt muttered. His arm tightened around her as he buried his face in her hair. “Your hair smells like flowers.”

“Tha’s a nice compliment.” She kissed his hand by way of thanks, and Kurt kissed the side of her face.

Susan sighed. “I like that, but I want to kiss your lips.” She giggled and turned over and put her arms around him.

Next week will be the last excerpt from this book. We'll start something new afterward. If you'd like to get a copy it's available at

Lovely story. Thanks, Elaine.

It sounds as though a romance is about to begin. Great snippet.

Well, they wasted no time moving from cuddling to kissing. They seem like a natural couple, though, so it's not surprising that things are progressing.

Uh oh, things are progressing a bit fast here! But as Christina said, they do seem like a natural couple. Great snippet!

But, but ... you can't stop excerpting from this book. I have no idea what might happen next! (Not!) ;-)

Unknown said...

They're definitely moving along quickly. I wonder if they're quite sober enough.

Just an innocent snuggle session for the sake of warmth. Yeah, right! Great snippet as always!
