It’s Teaser Tuesday time again, the blog series where I tantalise you with snippets from works-in-progress, past and upcoming releases, and occasionally let writing buddies play around too.
This week, lucky devils that you are, you have me again and I thought I’d share a paragraph from my current work-in-progress, a yet to be properly titled full-length rural romance.
I’m at the point where I can just start to see The End, and am so into the story and characters that I’m obsessing over them. They’re what I think about on sleeping and waking, and pretty much every other minute of the day. Which is exciting and fun, except when I’m trying to play golf. My game is totally up the spout at the moment because of these two. And I don’t even mind! Well, not too much. It’d be nice to stop feeding balls into the many water hazards on my golf course. Sigh.
I’m having so much fun with Tash and Patrick. Both have huge reasons why a relationship could never work between them. Tash in particular only wants friendship. Meanwhile, her heart has other ideas…
Tash thought of him as she brushed her teeth, as she changed into her pyjamas, as she lay under her doona staring at the glow stickers on her ceiling. She couldn’t shed her concern. Nor could she unravel her own tangled feelings. Patrick was the kind of man a girl could easily fall in love with. He was handsome, sexy, honest, loyal, smart, caring and good-humoured when he wasn’t weighted with sorrow or in one of his butthead moods. But falling in love wasn’t on Tash’s agenda. She had a career to think of and a friendship she didn’t want spoiled, plus she already had Maddy’s horse. Borrowing her fiancé on top would never sit right.
Finally, she drifted into sleep, only for Patrick to float with her, slipping into her subconscious and disturbing her dreams.
And not a single one had anything to do with friendship.
Wish me luck with the rest of the book!
