6 Days and Counting

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Here we are, 6 days until the release of my 9th novel, THE SOCCER PLAYER AND THE SINGLE MOM. To help pass the time (because the week before release day is always a nail biter for me!) I’m doing a “Meet the Characters” event. Each day, I’ll be introducing you to one of the characters from the book, and sharing a sneak peek with them in it.

So here we go… 6 days and counting …

Excerpt from THE SOCCER PLAYER AND THE SINGLE MOM: Bruno and Scott

Ding dong.

In an instant, Bruno went from sawing logs to impersonating a hundred-pound pit bull. He pranced on the couch like a boxer before a fight, teeth bared and ears back. It would have been an intimidating view, had the rest of him not looked like a fuzzy, over-inflated basketball.

Scott shifted away from the tiny beast, strands of slobber now dangling from its snapping jowls. “Guess our company’s a little early.”

“And you criticized me for hurrying.” Edna came to stand before the hall mirror and primped her cotton-ball bouffant. “Now, are you going to be a gentleman and let our company in, or not?”

Knowing it really wasn’t a question, Scott grabbed one crutch and hobbled his way to the door. Bruno followed, each vicious-sounding bark momentarily lifting him off the floor.

“Shouldn’t you grab Bruno?”

His grandmother waved him off. “Oh, he’ll be fine.”

Sure he would, if you considered “fine” splattered all over the road. No way was the little monster going to stay inside.

As expected, the Pom squirmed his way out the door as soon as his furry little butt could fit. But instead of taking off at a dead run, he began dancing on his hind feet, pawing at a pair of shapely legs. Scott opened the door fully to find Felicity on the front porch, kneeling to stroke Bruno’s soft fur.

~~THE SOCCER PLAYER AND THE SINGLE MOM, releasing 3/11/19 from Entangled Publishing.~~

For most women, working for a sexy soccer star would be a dream come true. All except single mom Felicity Shaw. She has no interest in playing personal assistant for a stubborn, injured playboy—no matter how nice his abs are. But with bills piling up and mouths to feed, she can’t say no to the job.

That’s when it gets interesting.

The last thing Scott Gillie wants or needs is a persistent and entirely too distracting PA while he’s recuperating in his small hometown. Unfortunately, it’s not up to him. Then Felicity and her son end up temporarily moving in—all thanks to his meddlesome grandmother. Now temptation is right across the hall and it’s driving Scott crazy.

His only option is to fight fire with fire.

He never expects Felicity to do the same.

 

See you all back here tomorrow for another sneak peek at novel #9!
