Saturday again! And we have more eight – or close to eight – sentence snippets to enjoy. I’m taking these from Cassie’s Tale, which will be out in four days! I’m very excited.
In today’s snippet, Cassie has continued to refuse to accompany Tom to a party give by the company trying to woo Tom out of retirement. She sees no reason to party with people trying to steal her husband away from her. She knows Tom wants her to go and she’s worried he’ll use unfair tactics to force her.
Tom’s look was one of amused exasperation and I was pretty sure I knew what was coming. Tom stalked toward me saying, “I think it’s time for a little talk.”
Talk my foot!
Reaching me Tom wrapped his arms around me and kissed my forehead. Then he slowly kissed my eyes and worked his way down my neck.
“You are going.” He told me in a voice that made me tingle, “You’re going because I want to show everyone that if I do take this job, I have a powerful reason to come home every night. I want to show them that my wife is beautiful and funny and sexy and satisfied and that I plan to keep her that way whether I work or not.” Taking a pause to kiss me on the lips he continued, “You’re going because I love you and I want you there with me.”
I told you he played dirty.
Cassie’s Tale will be out February fifth
Cassie continues to live life to the fullest, from wheeling around in her new sports car to mastering the art of riding a motor scooter with no hands, she manages to keep Tom on his toes. The fly in the ointment is that Tom’s firm wants him back for a project and Cassie wants him all to herself. When Tom takes the job, Cassie is left lonely and bored – never a good combination for her.
Left to her own devices Cassie makes some poor decisions, frightening Sue and causing Tom to lower the boom. Tom's new schedule for Cassie, including her getting a job, leaves her little time to get herself in trouble – yet she still manages.
Cassie’s Space - On Amazon
Meet Cassie, a former wild child, who meets her match, and creates the match of a lifetime. To nearly all who know her now, Cassie is a vivacious, sweet southern lady, who is the epitome of grace and proper behavior. Look a tiny bit closer and you’ll see that Cassie has another side – the one whose language could make a sailor blush as she drinks him under the table.
Thanks to her loving husband Tom, who even after thirty years of marriage, never hesitates to put Cassie over his knee when she strays too far from his view of ladylike behavior, few people other than close old friends know this side of Cassie exists.
Cassie and Tom show that love and passion are not the sole property of the young. Love and passion grows and changes with age. While aging may bring on challenges – the love and passion between these two people only grows stronger.
And now, the rest of the snippets.
