warriors-logo-revisedIt’s Snippet Sunday, when participating writers share 8-10 sentences from their work in progress! Check out more snippets from fellow authors at

Another week of holiday prep, wild and woolly promotion, and story writing. Plus a family outing to see Rogue One, which I’ll be reviewing next week.  Today I have another snippet from Always the Bride for you. A quick synopsis:

Sometimes, ulterior motives can lead to true love…

Helping with her boss’s wedding plans is the last thing jilted bride Elizabeth needs after hiding away for months to lick her wounds. Handsome photographer Grant might lure her heart out of seclusion-but can he be trusted? His motives for wooing the stubborn beauty involve her ex-fiancee’s revenge…and a reward that will fund college tuition for his troubled little sister. How can they get to I Do’s when Grant’s plan involves leaving her at the altar? Or has his plan-and his heart-changed?

Last week, Grant has just met Elizabeth, our heroine, her boss Georgia, and Georgia’s dog, P.P., after saving it from a car. He wondered aloud about the dog’s name, and we ended with: “No, she’s housebroken,” Elizabeth broke in. “P.P. is short for Purse Puppy.”

I’m skipping ahead just a few sentences, during which he’s introduced himself as Grant Denver. Let’s pick up from there…


“But no, surely not thee Grant Denver?” Georgia asked, turning to Elizabeth with wide eyes.

At her puzzled look in reply, Georgia’s face screwed up in disapproval. “Don’t tell me after all the times you’ve almost been married that you never heard of the top wedding photographer in the area?”

Grant shot Elizabeth a scrutinizing look that flooded her cheeks with heat. “It wasn’t that many times, and no, I hadn’t heard of him.”

Georgia moved closer to him. “You must shoot my wedding in November, Mr. Denver. At any cost, of course—just name your price.”

His deep stare thankfully shifted back to Georgia, and something flickered in his gaze. “I’d need payment in advance.”

…What do you think?
