He caught her speeding in a school zone and decided she needed to learn even civil disobedience could have very painful consequences.
Welcome to the first Sneak Peek Sunday of May. For Sneak Peek Sunday we share six paragraphs from a published work or a WIP (work in progress).
My submission for this week is from my 3rd book, Arrested by Love. A handsome, but strict, police officer decides a spoiled socialite needs a special lesson in obeying the law.
In this excerpt, which immediately follows my April 7 post, Tiffany Morgan deliberately breaks the law in order to get Kyle Sinclair's attention. This isn't the first time she's gone out of her way to bait the police officer, so she is familiar with the routine. Unfortunately, what she's about to receive is a lot more than she'd bargained for.

"Yes, sir," she replied deferentially in an effort to ease his anger a little. When she'd gotten into trouble before, she accidentally discovered that it pleased him when she deferred to him as "sir."
Handing him the documents she had ready and available on the seat beside her, she watched as he perused them, probably just to make sure she hadn't let either of them lapse. That could get her in hot water with him, too. Kyle was a stickler for following rules and regulations, which was very unfortunate for her. Looking up at his stern features, she patiently waited for him to pass judgment.
He jotted something on the pad he held. No doubt her license number. He fully intended to give her a ticket, except she had other plans. If she had the nerve to carry them out, that is.
"Did you realize you were going 45 in a 20 mile per hour zone? A school zone?" he asked in his official police officer voice.
"Yes, sir," she answered, knowing there was little point in denying it. She had been speeding on purpose in hopes she'd catch the officer's attention. The kiddies were all safe in school, so she wasn't being reckless, exactly, just speeding. Was it possible to barely break the law?
He pushed his glasses down his nose to glare at her straight on. "You knew you were speeding?" he asked, incredulity stamped on his rugged features.

Tiffany wishes she didn't have to resort to childish tactics just to get Kyle's attention, but he seemed determined not to ask her out no matter how many hints she gave him. Kyle, however, is determined the young beauty learn once and for all that breaking the law carries serious penalties.
