Sneak Peek Sunday--Rodeo Man


 
My offering is from this week's release, Rodeo Man. The conversation is between Cody (the hero) and his best friend, Luke, about Laney (the heroine). They're in jail after a fight at a local watering hole gets out of hand.
 
 
“I guess I said too much.” Cody wished Luke would say something—anything—to make him feel a little better.
“A bit,” Luke said.
“I lost my mind,” Cody muttered.
Luke paused for a long moment. “Listen, Code-Man, even if you’re right and she had sex with Wyatt solely intending to put a baby in her belly, that’s between her and him. What happens between you and her is your business.”
“I know.” Cody punched the ceiling and groaned when he hurt his hand. If Luke said he had screwed up, then Cody had really done a number on Laney. He knew he had no right to speak about what he suspected happened with Laney and Wyatt.
“What happens with a man and a woman is their affair,” Luke repeated. “But, Code-Man, you biffed. Not only Rayanne and me were there, but the kid got an earful, too. He was upstairs, but I’d bet my last dollar he heard you. You got to keep the kids out of it.”
 


Please keep hopping:
