Because I am still riding so high over having my cover completed, I’m releasing a Thursday, Chapter 13, teaser. Enjoy!
When I slid into the seat across from Leander, my eye, and a half, settled on a dish of chocolate pudding. It sat on a small plate and had these mouth-watering pieces of cookie crumbled over top. “Did you order this for me?” I asked unable to hide my astonishment.
He lips fluttered into an immodest smirk. “Dessert first is the only way to live. Besides, I saw how you devoured that chocolate pie yesterday. Pudding was the safest way to go. It has a little texture and consistency, but nothing you actually have to chew before swallowing.”
“Keep pissing me off,” I challenged spooning out my first bite. “And you’ll get another chair to the head real soon like.”
“Are you threatening a man of the law?” He teased. That was the second time I’d heard a cop say something along those lines recently. Trary being the first. I decided to keep things on a comical level so they wouldn’t end as badly as that situation had.
“I’m not threatening a man of the law. I’m threating a friend who’s on my very last nerve.”
“Now you’re calling me a friend, eh?” He shook his head like it was the most preposterous thing he’d heard all day, but I saw the way his green eyes pulsed with pleasure. “Chocolate really is the solution to everything isn’t it?”
