Weekend Writing Warrior – 8/18/13
This week’s selection comes from the next installment in the Hot Nights in St. Blaise series – Seducing Mr. September.
His fumbling made her nervous. Her bravado leaked from her like air from a balloon. She needed to retreat and regroup. She had to get out of there fast. But not before she did what she came to do.
Waggling the white paper bag holding the economy-sized box of condoms, she inched toward the pharmacy door. “So, uh, these will be in my nightstand drawer. If you’re curious too.”
Seducing Mr. September
The Costa Nostra has nothing on the St. Blaise regional Medical Center Fundraising Committee when it comes to shaking people down for money. That’s the only explanation Pharmacist Mike Weber has for stripping down to nothing but a lab coat and a smile for a fundraising calendar.
Still, nothing could prepare him for frontal assault of Karen Horton. Cool as the most confident Don, she strolls into his store, grabs a jumbo box of condoms, and makes him an offer he can’t refuse.
Every night Mike Weber jogs past her house, shirtless, gorgeous, and absolutely oblivious. After years of watching life pass her by, Karen is ready to go for the gusto. Unfortunately, the gusto she wants is six-foot-five inches of shy guy.
But Karen is tired of waiting for the things she wants to come to her, so she launches a bold campaign guaranteed to make St. Blaise’s man of mystery take notice.
