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 June. 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 from Chapter One, 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, she's just admitted she knew she was speeding, which he considers to be a rash, reckless and punishable offense. Tiffany's definitely gained Kyle's attention, but perhaps not quite in the way she hoped.
"Yes, sir," she answered, looking up at him and giving him her best ingenuous smile.
Pocketing his pad along with her license and registration, he took a single step back. "Step out of the car, please, Miss Morgan," he snapped, his tone revealing a barely suppressed anger.
Closing her eyes, Tiffany swallowed for courage, then stepped out into the crisp January air as he'd commanded.
"Turn and place your hands on the roof of your car, please," he insisted, his hand on his gun.
Though she did as he ordered without comment, she thought he was really carrying things a bit too far this time. What was he going to do? Shoot her for speeding in a school zone? Frisk her for hidden weapons? She gulped as his strong hands did exactly that. She arched her back, unable to suppress a small groan at the impersonal, yet strangely erotic, pat down he gave her.
"Spread your legs, please," he commanded next, placing his knee between her thighs to ensure her compliance.
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 learns once and for all that breaking the law carries serious penalties.
