Thank you for stopping by for another week of Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors. It’s been a long week at work and I’m soooo looking forward to diving into snippets–the long weekend makes it that much better!
I’m continuing with Swashbuckler, my contemporary romance. This snippet follows directly from last week’s after Rachel admitted to Rodger she couldn’t tell the difference between a British and Australian accent. It’s not a turning point in their relationship (don’t worry!). It was only meant as a funny moment to highlight how very uncomfortable Rachel is with going on a date with The Rodger Conrad, an A-list actor who is also the star of her fantasies. Phew. That was a long sentence…
Rodger chuckled at her admission. “I know you could learn the difference, given the right teacher.”
“I don’t know about that. My whole family is tone deaf–you should hear us at birthday parties.” What she did know was that Rodger’s proximity was turning her into a basket case. The closer he got to her, the more she fought the urge to turn towards him. If she did, nerves aside, she wouldn’t be able to stop herself from planting her lips on his. Or ripping open his shirt and rubbing her hands all over his famous chest like some crazed fan.
That would go over well, she was sure. He’d kick her out of the cab and she’d land right on her arse.
