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.
After Kyle makes it clear to Tiffany that speeding will earn her much more than a ticket from him, he gives into the inevitable and asks her out on a date. He loves her, but isn't sure he's the right guy for her. However, he no longer fights the attraction between them as he dates her exclusively, but Tiffany wants more, so she makes her stand, and Kyle makes it clear how her life will change if they get married.
Finally, he reached out and tilted her chin up so she would look at him. "So, tell me, my spoiled little rich girl. Do you think you could live on a cop's salary?"
That got Tiffany's attention right away. Was he asking her to marry him? She thought for a moment, then answered with a touch of asperity, "This isn't the early twentieth century, Kyle. I do work, and make a pretty good salary myself."
"That's nice, honey. But, do you think I'm going to want you to work after we get married?"
Tiffany thought her jaw dropped to the floor with that question. "This is the twenty-first century, Kyle. Don't you think it's time you crawled out of your dark little cave and came into the light of women's equality?"
He bent closer, and his eyes were so intently focused on her, she felt like he was seeing into her mind. She immediately shrank back from the simmering anger she saw reflected in his gaze. Tiffany wasn't scared he'd hurt her. Not really. But her tightly clenching bottom definitely respected the dominance he held over it. "Do you want children, Tiffany?"
Puzzled, she gave a slight shrug. "Yeah. Someday. Maybe after a few years."
Tiffany is an innocent, but she knows she wants Kyle, so sets out a plan to get him, except Kyle has a few requirements of his own..
