Hi everyone. As promised, here is a sneek peek from my latest book, Oh Baubles, a clean Christmas Romance Novella …
John glanced down. He had no clue why. Maybe it was bug radar or something. A big black spider, fat round body and legs thick enough to have knee joints, crawled over his foot. With a screech, he flicked it off and leapt to his feet.
From her perch in the bed, Charlene stared at him. He laughed breathlessly. ‘Oh, God. I just squealed like a girl.’
‘Hey, I’m a girl.’
Startled, he stared at her. She was laughing. At him. Oh, Lord. What must she think of him? Bad that he’d just screamed like that, but then he’d added to it by insulting girls. Smart. Real smart.
‘Sorry. Spider,’ he mumbled.
Charlene shuddered. ‘I hate the things.’ Then she grinned at him. ‘I’m glad it was on your foot and not mine.’
They shared a chuckle. For the first time, John felt like he might have made some headway with Charlene. He’d liked her from the first time he’d met her, as damaged as she was. Her injuries paled next to her fighting spirit, grit determination, and bravery. As much as he resented having to work with sick and broken people, instead of doing the glamorous stuff with the sports stars, she was one of the few who made his daily grind easier to bear.
Then she vomited. All over him. With zero warning.
