From Christina: As I work on the third book of “The Sunset Series”, I’m going to be sharing the story here. I’ll be posting “snippets” each week on Sneak Peek Sunday, and from time to time, I might post additional snippets, as well.
The story, “He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not”, is scheduled for release from Secret Cravings Publishing in January. Please be aware that what you are reading here will be unedited, unrevised work from a rough draft of the story. All comments, questions, and suggestions will be appreciated.
Those who’ve read “Not the Marrying Kind” will remember Emily Sue Phillips as the annoying little sister who loved sneaking about. In this story, she’s a very grown up young lady. I hope you enjoy today’s snippet, and that you’ll continue reading as the story progresses.

A deep, familiar male voice called out, and suddenly Emily felt herself falling as the big man let go of her. She landed on the dirt with a painful thud, confused and disoriented. With great effort, she scrambled again to her feet, careful this time not to put any weight on her twisted ankle.
“Go on! Get away from her.”
Emily nearly swooned at the welcome sight of Benjamin Brooks. He hadn’t forgotten her, after all. Grateful that he’d come in time to rescue her, she threw herself against him, expecting him to open his arms and enfold her in an embrace.
Instead, he stood rigid, his arms at his side. He stared at the broad-shouldered giant whose hands were now raised in apparent supplication.
“I didn’t hurt nobody,” the big brute said in a surprisingly timid voice. “Only trying to help. That’s all.”

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little “snippet”.
