I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July, whether you were celebrating Independence Day or it was just a good Friday. I’m glad to be back home from our vacation and I’m looking forward to filling up my kindle again after I get to read all your snippets today.
My snippet is from the second Cassie book, Cassie’s Tale, Tom and Cassie have been invited to a party being held by the company that is trying to woo Tom back to work. Cassie hates the idea of Tom working again and adamantly refuses to go. Cassie thinks Tom is playing dirty as he insists she accompany him.
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 kissed my eye and slowly worked his way down my neck. “You are going,” he told me in a sexy whisper. “You’re going because I want to show everyone that if I do take this job, I have a powerful reason for coming home each day. I want to show them that my wife is beautiful, and sexy, and satisfied, and that I plan on keeping 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 plays dirty.
There are three Cassie books now - I hope you'll read them all.
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.
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 on the move and loving life. Through paint ball game in the woods and water park adventure she’s gets to know her new neighbors as the new house is renovated.
Cassie is traveling too, from trips with just the girls, to conventions, vacations, and cruises with Tom and friends, she's always ready for the next adventure. But when Cassie begins having dizzy spells Tom thinks a slower pace is in order. Getting Cassie to slow down and take care of herself proves to be quite a challenge. A challenge Tom is more than determined to take on.
