|Happy First Day of Spring!|
He caught her speeding in a school zone and decided she needed to learn even civil disobedience could have very painful consequences.
Another Friday, another excerpt to launch you into your weekend. For this Frisky Friday I am sharing a bit 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.
The following section occurs about two-thirds through the book, and in it Tiffany isn't feeling the least bit frisky at the moment. Kyle and Tiffany have been separated for several weeks. She's refusing to see him after catching him in a lie, and her family has circled the wagons around her. Recently, Kyle learned Tiffany isn't doing well, so he decides to conduct a stake out near her home when he spots the family leaving the house. Tiffany is so weak, she can barely stand by herself. His protective instincts rushing to the fore, Kyle promptly intervenes. His presence seems to rally Tiffany's low spirits, even if it's only for a show of anger, so her father allows it, but informs Kyle if Tiffany prefers to be back home, he will do everything in his power to get her back. Kyle doesn't expect anything less as he carries Tiffany to his car and drives her to the doctor. When she fears she's going to be sick again, he carries her into the ladies room, despite her protests, and takes her into one of the stalls.
She stood there for a moment, just breathing, then said, "I need to sit down."
"Is this because you feel dizzy, or do you need me to pull your sweats and panties down for you first?"
"I don't know," she said and started to cry.
He drew her into his arms, and held her close as he rubbed her back. When she gave a little moan that sounded more like pleasure than distress, he said, "Feeling better?"
"A little. The rubbing feels good."
"Okay, I want to pick you up and carry you into the doctor's office now."
"No. Just put your arm around me and let me walk with you. I don't want to appear like a total invalid."
"Well, I don't want you wearing yourself out, so we'll compromise. I'll carry you to the door, then support you as you walk with me into the waiting room."
Tiffany is upset with Kyle, but at the moment she is so ill, even glaring at him takes more energy than she's got, but Kyle refuses to leave her side again, blaming himself for not insisting upon seeing her a lot sooner than he did.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you enjoyed this brief excerpt and wish you and yours a very Frisky Friday.
