Beyond the Book: The Captain and the Cheerleader

Today's excerpt is from the book we've been previewing The Captain and the Cheerleader. To summarize, so far we know that Susan bet an irritating fellow teacher that she could make head football coach Kurt Deveraux ask her out. He did, and invited her to a party. In today's excerpt Susan and Kurt arrive at the party.

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.

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.

Mendoza grinned at her. “Hmm, maybe I was wrong. Your woman likes your touch, Kurt.”

Susan’s face burned as Kurt shot a glance at her. “I try to please her in every way.”

Mendoza slapped Kurt on the back. “Good job, my friend. Both of you, dance, eat, drink. Enjoy yourselves.” With a shout of laughter, Mendoza rejoined the party while Susan took Kurt to task.
