Happy Saturday! I hope you’re ready for some summer reading. My next book will be out in August, so until then here’s another snippet from Searching for Home, the fourth in the Cal’s Law series. Last week Allie was thinking over how the different men on The Landing felt about discipline. As she thought, Ryan wanted her attention back to them.
“A-hem…” Ryan cleared his throat, bringing Allie out of her reverie. She looked at him with a small smile, so grateful that, of all their close friends and family, her husband was by far the best.
“Are you bad mad?” she asked.
“Am I mad that my wife ran off and left me and didn’t tell me where she was going and wouldn’t answer my calls? What do you think?” Ryan asked back.
Coming to him, Allie put her hands on his face. “I think you are the most wonderful husband in the world. I think you’re sweet and understanding and loving and gentle and nowhere near the hard-ass Cal can be,” she answered.
“You think I’m a wimp? That you can do anything you want and that I won’t hold you accountable?”
“I think,” Allie said, sweetly, “that you missed me terribly. You’re happy that I’m home and you aren’t going to waste time being mad.” Allie grabbed his tee-shirt and pulled him gently toward her.
As she started to pull it over his head, he stopped her, leaning in for a kiss. Then, nearly whispering into her mouth, he said, “I did miss you and I’m going to spank your ass cherry red.”
“Right now?” Allie asked him, whispering as he was.
“Right now,” he repeated and Allie looked down, hiding her smile.
When they try to keep their worries from their protective husbands, they find out what it means to have an alpha man to deal with. After the girls are attacked at work, things seem to go from bad to worse. Taking on adult responsibilities is never easy as they’re finding out the hard way. Good thing they have their older friends, Cassie, Sue, Annie and Lily to fall back on.
