Saturday Sample

Welcome to Saturday Sample. I've been sharing samples from The Captain and the Cheerleader with you, and today we'll pick up where we left off last time. If you remember, Susan had just gotten her date with Kurt.

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.

Susan gave Kurt directions to her house and went to her closet to see what she had to wear. Maybe her new jeans would be nice with the black sweater she had bought on sale last winter. The jeans fit like a dream, and the sweater always brought out the gold in her hair. Her black boots would look perfect with the outfit and so would some turquoise jewelry she’d bought in Arizona.

Samson meowed piteously and rubbed against her legs. “Do you need a treat?” Susan crooned. Scooping him up, she went to the kitchen for a kitty treat. Guess she might as well call Melissa now too.

“Hi, it’s me,” she said. “Guess who I’m going out with tonight.”

“Not Kurt?” squealed Melissa. “Boy, that was fast work. Robin’s going to die.”

Susan laughed. “I hope she’ll be suitably impressed. How am I going to prove to everyone that I really went out with him?”

“You can thank him for the evening in the lounge in front of everyone. Where’s he taking you?”

“Some friend of his is giving a party, and he asked me to go.”

Melissa giggled. “Have a good time, but you’d better behave yourself. I saw how you were watching him last night. I think you liked what you saw.”

Susan rolled her eyes even though Melissa couldn’t see. “Of course, I did. What’s not to like? Kurt’s absolutely gorgeous.”

“I noticed. Whew, this conversation could get out of hand. Behave now, you hear?”

“He invited me to a party for goodness sake.” Susan absently stroked Samson who had jumped up on the table. “The worst that can happen is we won’t have a good time together.”

I have another new release! Fortuna is a merry tale of life, love, and confusion in a small town.

Go to Thursday's post to read chapter 1. I'll start with some excerpts as soon as I finish Ch. 1 of The Captain and the Cheerleader.
