Saturday Spankings






Love is Where You Find It is the story of a cowboy who plans to retire to his ranch purchased with his rodeo winnings and a girl who wants a new life.
Lo

Last week's scene found Randy and Misty returning to his truck for the continued ride to Reno.  He is trying to engage Misty in conversation and begins telling her about his family and his nephews. He notices tears streaming down her face.


"I'm sorry, I didn't mean to bring up hurtful things," he told her.

"I know you didn't, there are some things that are too hard to talk about."

With that Randy turned on the radio and didn't ask any more questions.  As they got closer to Reno he asked her if she had any plans.

"Don't worry about me.  I appreciate the meal and the ride but you don't owe me a thing. Please drop me off in a town and I'll take if from there."

"Boy, somebody really did a number on you didn't they?  Not everybody in this life is out to get you...

  4. The thing I love most about your writing is your character and how you let us get to know them a little at the time. Just the way we get to know people in real life.

    1. You know we've talked about this and sometimes when I go back and read I am amazed at my own writing - it's as if someone else wrote it.

  5. He's given her a ride and she starts to cry for no apparent reason. I can see him not pressing her for details, but I'm wondering what his internal dialog is. What is he thinking? "I never should have picked up this crazy chick?" Does he want to comfort her but feel he'll be rebuffed? Why would he be attracted to someone with issues?

    1. I'm sorry to say I don't put that much thought into it. Who's to account for connections we make, certainly not I, or there are some I would never have made. lol

  6. Leigh, you leave my mind to wonder what happened to Misty. His talking about family has surely triggered a great emotional swath of feelings. One's she surely does not wish to share. I also like that he tries to be encouraging to her, telling her that not everyone is out to get her. I wonder... will he really just drop her off in the town and leave?
    Inquiring minds want to know!
    Great snippet ☺

    1. Isn't that what I am supposed to do - trigger your thoughts so you buy the book. If I've done that then I've accomplished my goal. lol

      Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thanks Kathryn. I know what you mean about thinking you have the book. My debit card takes a hit on Saturday and I haven't the time to read so I'm glad Amazon tell you when you have already purchased.
