Hi, Sunday Snippet folk! After an absence, I’m back this week with a snippet from my Entangled contemporary romance, Melting the Millionaire’s Heart. I’m excerpting this story for a couple of reasons. First, it’s a New Year’s Eve story, so it’s timely. Second, the sequel to this book, The Mason Dixon Line, comes out in February. Enjoy!
In this scene, the heroine, Kayla, is on her way to a fundraiser at a wealthy man’s estate when she wrecks her car in snowy weather. She’d been dreading the fundraiser anyway because her ex-boyfriend Steve and his new girlfriend were going to be there, and she’s just learned that he’s just married his new girlfriend. We find her on a deserted, cold road, looking for help after her accident:
Twenty minutes later, she wished she’d chosen a more
practical outfit. She wouldn’t have worn heeled leather boots,
a short skirt, and a silky blouse if she’d known she’d be hiking
across frozen tundra. Her main goal had been to look hot.
That way, when she showed up alone, Steve and Eve would
think it was by choice, not because she couldn’t get a date.
Yeah, right. She wasn’t hot. She was so un-hot, it was
almost funny. Matter of fact, she was freezing.
