Weekend Writing Warrior – 6/2/13

Posted on Jun 2, 2013 by Maggie Wells   13 Comments | Posted in Blog

This week’s selection comes from book #6 in the Hot Nights in St. Blaise series – Bustin’ Out All Over

She opened her mouth to protest his smug assertion but her hand had a mind of its own. Without thinking, she hauled off and the palm of her hand connected with his gorgeous ass with a ringing slap.

His groan came out tangled up with a startled laugh. “Yes, please, more.”

She squeaked in frustration, finally putting a bit of effort into wriggling out from under him. He let her go, peeling himself off her like the backing on a sticker.

“I can’t believe I did that. Never in my life have I ever met a guy I want to hit as much as I want to hit you, Quentin Halliday.”

Bustin’ Out All Over

Terri Ecklund wishes she’d never agreed to be Miss June. As billing manager for SBRMC, she could appreciate that the damn thing had raised a healthy amount of money to fund hospital improvements, but it also cost her big. She could deal with the sly snickers, crude jokes about her ‘assets’, and the perfect strangers whistling ‘June is Busting Out All Over’, but her boyfriend couldn’t.

When the pro-fisherman she hooked long ago cuts bait and takes the contents of their joint bank account with him, Terri scrambles to patch the pieces of her life back together but not before tearing a strip off the smarty-pants internet genius who set the The Men and Women of St. Blaise Regional Medical Center up to go viral.

Internet millionaire and St. Blaise native Quent Halliday nearly swallowed his tongue when Terri Ecklund, St. Blaise, Missouri’s god-given rebuttal to Pamela Anderson’s plastic surgeon, stormed into his St. Louis office spitting nails over the loss of her almost-fiancé.

Drawn to the sparks flying from her eyes and the lure of her bountiful curves, clever Quent knows the opportunity of a lifetime when he sees it. Without hesitation he drops everything to chase after the girl of his fantasies, and when he catches her, they’re both shocked to discover he may just be the man of her dreams.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out all of the posts from my fellow Weekend Writing Warriors!

    Sort of an unexpected path for the scene to take but I like it and want MORE. Terrific snippet!

    Hahaha I love the last line. And I’m sure that his reaction to being hit just makes her want to hit him even more – just to try to get the reaction she WANTS out of him.
