Contemporary romance Sunday Snippet, Just a Touch

Happy Sunday, folks. Or, if you’re in Indy like me, Happy Race Day! Welcome to the Greatest Spectacle in Writing, otherwise known as Sunday Snippet/WeWriWa. This is a quick snippet from my sexy Sedona novella, Just a Touch. The heroine is feeling a bit insecure about not measuring up to her hero’s looks and level of sexual experience. Earlier in the book, she jokingly calls him “man-whore,” which he disputes. He speaks first:

“Keep talking. You were telling me how hot I am.”
“As if you don’t know you’re a stud.”
He rolled his eyes. “Yeah, I thought I already explained I wasn’t a man-whore.”
“Well, no, not professionally. I thought maybe you were an amateur, though.”
“‘Gage Acton, Amateur Man-Whore’ — I need to get business cards printed up.”

  1. That’s becoming a little bit tense. She is going to end up making him run away if she insists that much.

    I think “Gage Action” would be a good name for a professional . . . just add an “i”. 🙂

    I’m getting a sense that he’s keeping his annoyance reigned in, but maybe not for long?

    Great excerpt. I can see how this could go either way and I’m looking forward to reading more. Funny how a guy could take that as a complement… hopefully she’ll get her insecurities reigned in before it does harm!

    In spite of her awkwardness, he seems to be eating it up, or checking to see how far she will go. “Keep talking, You were telling me how hot I am.”

    He might joke, but I’d think her comments would get old quickly. Curious to see where this goes.
