Helloooooooooo! Happy spring, my friends! The sun is shining and the temperatures are rising…just as they are for Kent and Hannah in Love Unleashed. Keep reading for the latest installment!
Continuing from where we left off…
Hannah wiped her icing-covered hands on the front of her apron and stood. The kids were well on their way to creating culinary masterpieces fit for any canine. Drops of icing speckled the floor beneath their workspace, but Muffy would happily take care of that problem. She spotted her lovable pooch approaching a distracted Kent. Muffy brushed her snout against his hand, and the man jolted at the contact, nearly bumping into the display of dog food bags.
Lord, the guy was touchy. Did he really hate dogs that much . . . or was this more of a phobia? Muffy glued herself to Hannah’s side as she approached him. “You okay?” she asked Kent.
“Yeah, fine,” he muttered. “Just lost my balance.”
***End of WWW post, but carry on to finish this sequence.***
“Okay,” she said, dragging out the word. “I have to say, I wasn’t expecting to see you here today. At least not without your posters.”
His lips curved in the barest of smiles. “I didn’t know this was one of the chosen stops.”
She wanted to ask if he would have changed his mind about chaperoning if he’d known, but she refrained. “Only thirty more minutes and you can leave and pretend you were never here.”
He played with the leftover stick from the treat she’d given him, twirling it between his index finger and thumb, the action weirdly mesmerizing. “You know, for someone who hates puns so much, you shouldn’t go around handing out ‘pupsicles’ to impressionable kids.”
Smirking, she asked, “Which impressionable kid is yours?”
Kent didn’t have to point her out. The rosy-cheeked, pigtailed girl who’d already stolen Hannah’s heart walked toward them, holding out her freshly-decorated peanut butter paw for their inspection.
Here’s the blurb:
Hannah Barker has it all. A booming business, a fabulous group of girlfriends, and a loving and devoted housemate…with floppy ears and a wet nose. She doesn’t have time for romance. Or so she says.
Kent Clarkson is a single father on a mission to keep his daughter safe. But when the blonde bombshell he’s been butting heads with all summer proposes opening a dog park, Kent—who’s been once bitten and more than twice shy—goes on the offensive. Soon, it’s all-out war.
The whole town knows the chemistry between Hannah and Kent is off the leash, but can these two set aside their differences long enough to fall in love?
Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!
It’s lovely and warm outside–well, warm for Canuckland, at least–so I think I’ll go and get some vitamin D straight from the source. Wishing you all good health, heat, and happily ever afters. See you next week! 🙂
