Self published author.
Here is a short sample from the book:
I sighed heavily and stared out the window. There wasn’t much to see on Highway 20. Farmer’s fields and small towns dotted the landscape.
"What's the matter? The cat got your tongue?" Holt chuckled. A playful grin replaced the bored frown that had persisted since we left he park.
"Sorry. I talk a lot when I’m nervous."
"It's fine. I’m interested in what you have to say. I usually like to get to know a girl a little before she has my baby." He laughed and turned his attention back to the road.
As we passed through the town of Sweet Home, the radio played a song about a guy taking a pretty girl home to meet his momma. Holt stared straight ahead and frowned. The teasing mood disappeared as quickly as it came on. I had fallen for a capricious man.
"So what are your parents like?"
He rubbed the back of his head before answering. "What are they like? Well, my father is a control freak. He likes to be in charge of everything and he manipulates whoever or whatever he needs to in order to get his own way. My mother has a similar personality. My parents are well matched, but they argue a lot. They are too much alike and both very stubborn."
Great. I couldn’t wait to meet them. They sounded delightful. Not. "What about your sister?"
His face lit up. "Chelsea is awesome. She is smart, kind, caring and selfless. She is nothing like my parents. If I hadn’t been ten years old when she was born, and remember my mom being pregnant, I would say that she was adopted."
"It doesn’t sound like you inherited any of their personality traits either."
"You don’t even know me. I could be a real jerk." He glanced over at me and cocked an eyebrow, shooting me a sly grin.
"I doubt it. But I would like to get to know you better."
"I have a feeling that we are going to get to know each other pretty well in the next little while."
