Saturday Sample: The Captain and the Cheerleader

Welcome to Saturday Sample. I'm sharing excerpts from The Captain and the Cheerleader, and we'll be picking up where we left off last week. Kurt was in the middle of a tense football game when Susan sent him a football play sketched on a piece of paper. It made him mad to be disturbed, but he looked at it, tried it, and it won the game for him.

Pumped with adrenalin, Kurt jogged up the hill toward the locker room with Jason beside him. The

football team followed, their cleats clicking against the pavement. He laughed aloud which brought an answering grin from Jason. They’d actually beaten Middleton!

The team overtook Melissa Taylor just as they crested the hill. “Chris!” Kurt yelled, but it was too late. Chris Eades, the Mavericks’ kicker and the biggest boy on the team, wasn’t looking where he was going and slammed into Melissa who fell to the pavement with a little cry.

Jason got to her first. “Are you okay? That was some hit you took.”

“I think so.” She pursed her lips. “My knee burns like crazy, but I don’t think I’m hurt too bad.”

“Chris’ll apologize to you on Monday morning,” Jason promised. “I know the guys are excited, but there’s no excuse for such carelessness.” He held out his hand to pull Melissa up.

“Thanks,” she said.

Kurt studied her face. “Are you sure you’re okay?”

“Yes. I’m fine.”

“Jason, you’d better walk her to her car. Getting knocked down sort of shakes you up.”

Jason’s quick agreement made Kurt smile. Why not help a buddy out? Jason had been watching Melissa for months now. He grinned as he joined the team in the locker room. Who’d have thought he had it in him to be a matchmaker? 


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.
