I had a busy week! Did holiday promo for another pen name, battled some fun cold germs, and worked on a couple stories.  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 finds out that the little dog he just rescued from running in front of a truck belongs to Georgia (who is Lizzie’s eccentric celebrity boss). We ended with:

“Replacing a camera is the least I can do for P.P.’s hero,” Georgia said, her saucer-like sunglasses going askew as she nuzzled the puppy nose to nose.


Let’s pick up from there…


Elizabeth noticed Grant’s forearm, and without thinking she grabbed it to examine the raw scrape that was starting to bleed. “You’re hurt.”

“I’ll mend.”

She was fingering the warm flesh around the injury, but pulled away when she looked up to find him staring at her.

“I don’t know what got into my angel,” Georgia said, the dog licking her face. “P.P. has never run off like that before.”

Grant’s brow lifted. “P.P. as in…”

“No, she’s housebroken,” Elizabeth broke in. “P.P. is short for Purse Puppy.”


…What do you think?
