Happy New Year.  Christmas, 2015 is over.  It's hard to believe that we spend so much time getting ready and then its over in an instant. Hope everyone had a wonderful day and enjoyed the holiday.  Now we have to gear up for 2016.  Whatever happened to Y2K - remember that? It was yesterday, wasn't it?

Loving His China Doll is the story of Chyna Minton and Jeff Kincaid.

Chyna Minton became blind after a traumatic childhood experience.  She developed ‘second sight’ after the incident so when handsome Jeff Kincaid calls at her house to inquire about leasing her family land, she knows he will forever change her life in some way.

As the two find their way into love, problems arise.  Having initially been resigned to her blindness, Chyna is unhappy at the prospect of being dependent on someone else and fears that eventually Jeff will tire of her not being able to function in the traditional role of a farmer’s wife.  Desperate to change things, she decides to go back into therapy. 

Today's snippet takes place after Jeff arranged to lease Chyna's land.  Chyna hasn't told him she is blind but he suspects and is trying to get her to tell him.

“So are you ever going to tell me, or are you waiting for me to say something?”

“I don’t know what you’re talking about?”

“Liar, liar, pants on fire.”

“I never understood that phrase.”

“To me, it meant if I got caught in a lie, mom or dad would light a fire on the seat of my pants, usually with a switch or a wooden spoon.”  He watched her face redden as she squirmed in the chair.

“I can see by your expression you know exactly what I’m talking about, don’t you? Better watch out or you might be reliving the experience.”

“More lemonade?” she asked.

“You keep dancing around. I’ll get to the bottom of this yet.”

“Bottom, huh.” 

He laughed.  “Is this going to be a battle of semantics?

  1. Aww, I love it when characters have good banter. Very nice.

  2. I waited until today to get this - it's my Christmas present to me! As things relax around here I can read. I have a feeling these two are going to be fun to read about.

    1. I hope you enjoy and you'll have to let me know what you think. I've been told it's my best one yet but sales haven't reflected that yet.

  3. Fun snippet Sunny, I love how they dance around each other :)


  4. Awww! That was such a sweet snippet! I hope that Jeff makes Chyna realize that it doesn't matter that she's blind.

  5. Cute exchange. And even though Chyna is reluctant to say the words, I'm sure she knows her inability to see doesn't bother Jeff at all. If not, she will soon.

  6. Hi Sunny, I love this story! Funny snippet. Wishing you a Happy New Year!
