Beyond the Book

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 have arrived at the party, and Kurt made her angry by insinuating that the two of them were lovers. He did this because he didn't want any competition from other single guys.

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.

Last Week:
Kurt cleared his throat. He looked a little uneasy, as well he should. “Would you like to dance?”

Uh oh. Hard to stay mad when he’d said the magic words. “I sure would.” Susan grabbed his hand. “I love music and dancing.”

A look of approval spread across his face. “So do I.”

We’re well matched, Susan thought as they spun around the floor. He knows what he’s doing. By the time the dance ended, both of them were hot, flushed, and laughing.

Susan fanned her face with her hand. “Let’s get something to drink.” 

This week:

They made their way to the end of the barn where Mendoza had set up the refreshment table. She handed Kurt a glass of punch and poured one for herself. “This is good,” she said as she drained her glass. “I can’t identify all of the ingredients, but it tastes good.”

Kurt sipped his own drink. “I think it has tequila in it, so be careful.”

Tequila? She wouldn’t contradict him, but she didn’t taste alcohol at all. Alcohol tasted bad, but this punch was so yummy she might have a second glass.
