Sunday Snippet: All Bets Off

March 3, 2013


Trying to get my posts up earlier this weekend and see if I can start a trend. J

Also watching Banshee, catching up with last week's episode before trying to get this week's. Gotta make time for Walking Dead, too.

So much TV, so little time. :P

Okay, this week's preview is from a newly started manuscript, All Bets Off. The sages pretty much threw out a random plot bomb and it exploded in my face. I'm not very far along yet, but I love the potential for this one. I might even submit for a special call if my contrary sages keep cooperating. LOL

Here's the tagline:

Kellen Bairds and Pierce Abbotson make friendly wagers on a regular basis until Kellen won't admit Pierce won their latest round. When he calls her on the lie, she gets angry because no amount of money on earth will make her reveal how kinky her dreams are. Or her feelings for him.

Here's the snippety peek:

Kellen snarled. "Fuck you."
Pierce shook his head. "Not if you paid me."
Ouch. And the dumb ass completely missed the point, but why should it surprise her. He always did.
She countered. "I have paid you, you moron. Every single time I lost a bet." She came around the counter to stand toe to toe with him. "What the hell is your problem with this?"
He made a garbled choking sound. "My problem? You won't admit I won this time." He leveled his gaze on her. "And I did. Fair and square." His finger jabbed her in the shoulder. "And you're welching on it."
He had her there. No way did she plan to answer his question.
Kellen scrambled for a comeback. "You can choose to look at it that way." Backing up, she returned to her spot behind the counter, wanting the barrier between them. "But I refuse to let you pry into my personal life. So deal with it."
Pierce rolled his eyes. "How the hell is asking for the details of your most vivid fantasy prying into your personal life. For all I know you could totally make something up and I wouldn't be the wiser."
Okay, he had a point. But when he'd asked…she hadn't been prepared. And her most vivid fantasy…involved him. Naked, hot, and ready for action. She wouldn't, couldn't answer because a porntastic movie started playing in her head and she barely kept herself from trying to strip him down and make it a reality.
So she refused to say anything. Stupid, stupid mistake. Now he wouldn't shut the hell up about it.
Damned man.

Hee hee hee. Kellen's got it bad for Pierce. And luckily, he's just as hot for her. If all goes according to plan, they'll have a lovely kinky evening and decide to go for more. J

That's it for this week. Happy reading!
