Saturday Spankings



Hey everybody, nice to see you.  For those of you stateside hope you had your fill of turkey and enjoyed the day with family and friends.  Are any of you Black Friday Shoppers?  If so, did you score the deals you expected?

Today's snippet is from my newly released book Love is Where You Find It. It is the story of a retiring rodeo cowboy that has loved and lost and a young girl who has lost and loves.  This scene takes off where last week's snippet ended.  Enjoy 



 When she climbed into the truck she hugged the passenger door and kept her  hand on the handle so as to provide a quick escape if it became necessary. She had no belongings and when he asked her about them she told him they were gone along with everything else. He decided he wouldn't ask any questions. The silence between them continued as he drove down the road. Randy's stomach was beginning to grumble and he asked her if she would like something to eat.

  "I don't have any money."

  "That's not what I asked. You don't need money. I will pay for your food."

  "Just so you know mister if you buy me dinner don't expect me to be dessert."

  The way it sounded she had been down this road before.

There are times you want to be dessert and times you don't.  Did I tease you enough to make you want to read the entire story?  You can, all you have to do is click LSF Publishing or Amazon.

Living the Dream and Lonesome Oak Ranch are also available by clicking on the pictures.

Don't go away just yet, other authors have delicious snippets to enjoy.  Pick a name and click.  It's just that easy.!-- start LinkyTools script -->

  1. Hi Sunny, great teaser. Somehow I get the feeling that comment isn't going to go down well.

    Hugs,

    1. I think he might end up loving more than her sass - maybe something with not quite so many letters.

  11. Love the descriptions here. He can see that she's anxious (as she should be getting into a stranger's truck). Nice.

    1. In the movie and play Funny Girl, there's a song You Are Woman. See below

      Isn't this the height of nonchalance,
      Furnishing a bed in restaurants?
      Well, a bit of dinner never hurt,
      But guess who is gonna be dessert?
      Do good girls do just what mama says,
      When mama's not around?
      It's a feeling,
      Oy vey, what a feeling.
      Nick:
      A bit of paté?
      Fanny:
      I drink it all day.

      Bit of trivia for you.

  15. Maybe I'm naughty, too, because I didn't think it was so smart-assed for her to say that. Nice snippet!

    1. Thanks Angie. Everyone has a right to stand up for theselves, so I agree with you. She is spunky but she's had to be and has every right to self protect.

  16. Nice sunny girl. She has every right to say what she said in my opinion. :)

    1. I definitely agree, she has laid it right out there.

  17. I agree with Natasha, Leigh. If she's been down that road before, as he suspects, then I don't think he'd hold that comment against her. He is a stranger, after all, and a young woman needs to look out for herself.

    1. I don't think a nice guy like Randy would hold it against her. He seems to be to be too much of a gentlemen.

  18. Lovely teaser. And his thought is perfectly logical - what young woman hasn't been expected to "pay" for her supper one way or another?
