I have to be quick because I have company in town this weekend. Here are a fast eight from the first draft of the story I wrote the synopsis for last week. 🙂
Jessica bit the tip of her tongue as she watched him fit the key into the ridiculous heart-shaped cuffs.
One of them had to be sensible. That’s what she told herself each time she stifled the urge to doodle his initials or draw hearts in the steamy bathroom mirror. They’d only known each other six weeks. They’d been together only eleven days longer than the free trial on her Netflix account. True, she hadn’t been completely sold on the need to stream television shows when the membership fee hit her account, but she figured it was a damn sight better than buying season after season on DVD untested. And Langley Sheppard made no bones about the fact that he was looking for the lifetime membership type of relationship. He told her so seconds after their first kiss.
Want to find out how Lang and Jessica met? The Last First Date is available as part of the Harlequin-E Contemporary Boxed Set, or pre-order the single title (coming September 1, 2014)!
That’s it for this week. Be sure to check out all the excerpts from my fellow Weekend Writing Warriors!
