3 Weeks To Go! HAUNTED EVER AFTER sneak peek
Each week until release day I’ll share a fun excerpt pic like the one below, and a longer excerpt here on the blog. So with 3 weeks to go, here is the next excerpt of HAUNTED EVER AFTER, my next full-length romantic comedy with a touch of magic. If you enjoyed the fun and mayhem of FAST FORWARD, be sure to check this one out on 1st September. 😉
‘What’s your favourite colour?’ I asked Ty.
‘Just making conversation to pass the time. Cobalt? Not blue, or green, or red, but cobalt?’
‘Colours vary, it’s good to be specific.’
‘I guess. Then why aren’t you wearing cobalt? And why is your car black?’
‘I didn’t say it was my favourite colour to wear or anything, it’s just my favourite colour to look at, generally.’
‘Fair enough. That makes sense.’
‘What’s yours? Wait…light purple?’
‘Mauve. How did you know?’
‘You were wearing it that night you got stuck in the toilet. Just a guess.’
And I thought the only thing he’d noticed was the fact that I’d gotten stuck in the toilet.
‘Favourite TV show?’ he asked.
I was having déjà vu. It reminded me of the twenty questions Red had fired at me during dinner at the guest house when Ty was with us. As long as he didn’t ask me my favourite sexual position like she had, I’d be fine.
‘Doctor Who, or Midsomer Murders.’
He smiled. Was he silently making fun of my entertainment choices?
‘Oh, and Friends,’ I added, to seem reasonably normal and hip, and to honour last Saturday night’s laughter prescription. ‘You?’
‘Friends, too, of course, and Seinfeld. And Game of Thrones.’
‘Oh, I don’t think I could watch that. Looks too explicit and gory.’
‘Exactly! I love it. Try it, I guarantee you’ll be hooked.’
‘Hmm.’ I wasn’t convinced.
‘Okay, next question: If you could go back in time, when would you go?’
‘The fifties. They seemed cute and fun. You?’
‘Hmm, maybe the Palaeolithic period? You know, grow a beard and long hair, wear nothing but a loincloth, and hunt for food. Perfect.’
‘Caveman, huh? Well, you’ve got the loincloth bit all sorted, in a modern sort of way.’
‘True. Maybe I’ll have to mix up my performances a little. Instead of Doctor Ty, I could be Caveman Ty.’
An image of him swinging shirtless from tree to tree flashed through my mind. ‘Or Tarzan’s naughty cousin.’
‘Good idea. Tyzan, perhaps?’
‘How about we play I Spy next instead of Twenty Questions? It’s a perfect game for road trips, Cody loves playing it.’
Being around Ty was never boring. And I appreciated the way he was taking my mind off the inevitable challenge of going back to Chris’ house.
‘I’ll start,’ he said. ‘I spy with my little eye, something beginning with…I.’
‘Umm… Incredibly infuriating guy indifferent to public displays of partial nudity?’ I joked.
‘Nope! And yes, sort of.’
‘Impossibly irritating imbecilic Neanderthal?’
A laugh shot from his mouth. ‘I didn’t know you had such a witty way with words, Sexy Sally.’
‘I’m full of surprises this long weekend.’
