Beyond the Book: The Captain and the Cheerleader

Hello, and welcome to Beyond the Book. I've been sharing excerpts from The Captain and the Cheerleader. I'm picking up where I left off last week. Robin Lanford who's a royal pain in the butt just bet Susan English that she couldn't get a date with Kurt Deveraux, the head football coach. Some of the other faculty members also got in on the bet. Kurt showed up and Susan asked about the football game later that night. Now, Kurt has gone to be with the football players before the game.

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.

Kurt left the faculty lounge and joined the football team for its traditional pre-game meal. He

filled his plate from the buffet and sat down beside his longtime friend and fellow coach, Jason Cooper. Jason had been his best friend ever since they were in Mrs. Turner’s first grade class at Fairfield Elementary.

“Hey, what’s wrong with you?” demanded Jason. He dug his elbow into Kurt’s side when Kurt failed to reply to his question about the night’s strategy. “You’re a million miles away.”

“Sorry. I was thinking about what happened in the lounge a minute ago.”

“What happened?”

“Susan English gave me a compliment.”

Jason laughed. “Did she try to have her way with you?” he teased. “I’ve got my share of female admirers, buddy, but something about you drives women wild. Even Mrs. Kirby melts when you go through the lunch line, and everyone knows she’s as tough as nails.”
