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.
Tiffany Morgan has been in love with Kyle Sinclair since she was ten years old, when he'd turned her over his knee for attempting to swim in a raging white water river. Though she'd been furious with him at the time, Tiffany never told her family what Kyle did. Instead, she began trailing after him like an annoying younger sister as she tried to gain his attention.
Now, eleven years later, Kyle, a patrol officer, is finding it much more difficult to maintain his distance from the irresistible and vivacious redhead who continues to invent ingenious ways to attract his interest. Though he dismissed her initial attraction to him as infatuation, as she grew-up, his own feelings of desire and protectiveness deepened. So, despite his constant struggle to resist the spirited little minx's lures, Kyle finally has to admit that he is losing the battle--badly.
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. He is the process of writing her a ticket along with a recommendation she attend mandatory driver's training, when Tiffany comes up with a better idea....
Tiffany wet her lips and provocatively gave her hips a little swing. "Perhaps we could work something out, instead?"
Glasses immediately came down again. "Pardon me?"
She pointedly gazed at his crotch. The evidence that he found her attractive was blatantly obvious. "Perhaps, I could find a way to ease your discomfort, and you could forgive this small lapse of judgment on my part?" She deliberately ran her tongue over her lips just in case he hadn't gotten the message yet. Sometimes men could be a little thick.
If his eyes could physically glare daggers, she'd be one dead cookie by now. "Are you attempting to bribe me with oral sex, Miss Morgan?" he inquired silkily.
She gave him the most suggestive smile she had, then answered, "Among other things…."
"That's it!" he growled, yanking out his handcuffs and turning her so her face was smooshed against the very cold roof of her car. Before she could even say 'don't' he had her hands cuffed behind her back and was marching her over to his police car.
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, and attempting to bribe a police officer is a spankable offense.
