Hiya, peeps! Hope you’re all doing well! As I mentioned last week, I’ll be sharing the final snippet of The Barkery scene from Love Unleashed today, so let’s hop to it!
Continuing from where we left off…
They both held the wooden broom handle for several beats. Diana’s impatient tug at her father’s pantleg prompted him to break contact. “We should go. Thanks again for, you know . . .”
“Being my fabulous self?” Hannah filled in for him. “Oh, my pleasure.”
The sound of his laughter poured all over her like warm butter, but she couldn’t savor it for long because Diana launched herself at Hannah’s middle and squeezed her in another hug. “Goodbye, Miss Barker!”
“Bye, sweetheart! Have you got your doll?”
**End of WWW post, but here’s a bit more!***
“Yep! She’s in my backpack.”
Kent took her hand and they headed for the door. As they crossed the threshold and stepped into the sunshine, he tossed Hannah a look over his shoulder. “See ya,” he said.
Hannah stood and stared at the door, long after it had closed behind them. Muffy came out of hiding and nudged her head against Hannah’s thigh. She knelt down and scratched behind her baby’s ear. “Ya know, Muffykins, he’s maybe not so bad after all, that Kent Clarkson.”
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!
Well, that’s one scene wrapped up! Next week, we’ll rewind to the beginning of the book and I’ll give you a sneak peek of the opening scene. Until then, happy word-making, my friends! xo
