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 harmless fellow, indeed. Not the least bit dangerous. Emily bit her lip, unsure whether or not she should speak up, make some sort of apology, or if she should simply remain silent.
Puzzled by all of it, Emily reached up to press gloved fingertips to her throbbing temples. For weeks, she’d looked forward to coming home, but returning to Sunset certainly hadn’t brought the expected pleasure.
Ben cleared his throat and nodded toward the bewildered rescuer. “You’ve helped enough,” he said, his voice quieter now, almost gentle. He might have been speaking to a child. Obvious concern in his eyes, he turned toward Emily and gave her a quick once-over. “Did he hurt you?”
“No, he frightened me, but he didn’t hurt me.”
Together, he and Emily glanced toward the big, dumb oaf, but he’d already turned away from them. They watched as he lumbered down the center of Main Street then disappeared around the next corner.

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