For this week's Sneak Peek Sunday, I’m sharing my six paragraphs from my re-released romantic comedy MORE THAN A PLAYBOY.
In this snippet Sandy is about to discover Cam's secret!
“Good evening, Miss. How was your journey?”
A little taken aback, Sandy hadn’t expected the stern-faced butler to make small talk with her. “Um...it was very pleasant, thank you.”
“Might I take your coat and bag?” He held out a wizened hand for the black wool garment.
Sandy scrambled out of her coat and handed it over. “Thank you.” She smoothed her damp palms over her hips in an effort to dry them, surprised by how shaky her hands were. She was more flustered at the prospect of seeing Cam than the time her Gran had caught her trying cigarettes behind her Grandfather’s shed at the end of their garden.
Sedrick offered her a small bow, and then placed the garment into the cupboard to the left of the front doors. “If you will follow me, Master Cameron is waiting for you in the dining room.”
She followed the regal old man, almost tempted to tiptoe when her heels echoed a staccato behind him. The room was as extravagant as the rest of what she had seen of the residence. White, grey-veined marble covered the walls, lead crystal chandeliers hung from the high gilded ceiling and gold leaf covered the mouldings. But it was the sight of Cam that stopped her feet from taking another step.
