Sunday Snippet #7 -- Seizing It

This week's Sunday Snippet is from Seizing It (my first published book).

Is it really that uncomfortable to sit here with me, or is this about you feeling swishy?”
I turned scarlet within a blink of an eye and hastily tried to free my chin from his grip.
Ah, I thought it would be that.”
Would be what?” I asked, irritated.
You’re not comfortable with me being taller, broader, and so on.”
Sourly I replied, “You forgot to mention overbearing, smart-alecky, and a lot of other stuff.”
You’re not unmanly just because you’re smaller than me.”
Thanks for reminding me about the height difference.”
Well, you are smaller and much lighter.”
I glared and punched him not too weakly on his chest. Dale gave a satisfying sound of pain, then growled. Before I could panic, his fingers slipped underneath my shirt and started tickling me. I shrieked and swatted at his hands. His fingers were everywhere all at once and no matter how much I writhed, swatted, and squeaked, his assault didn’t lessen. I was laughing so hard that tears were rolling down my face. My captor was grinning like a cat that got the cream, and I kept on twisting and begging for mercy.
Jackson eyed us curiously but made no move to get near us. “See,” Dale commented, “Jackson knows how very harmless I am.”
You’re not! I can’t breathe!”
Whose fault is that?”


  1. I just re-read this one and the followup book yesterday because I wanted to. I like the book.

    1. Wow, I'm taking this as a compliment. :) I'm so glad you like Kit and Dale's story!

  2. I just bought this one and am looking forward to reading it.

    1. I hope you'll like it, Lynette. Kit can be... exhausting at times. ;-)
