Today’s Weekend Writing Warriors’ excerpt comes from my first contemporary romance, BEAUTY AND THE BOUNCER, which is currently on submission. The hero and heroine in this book have a game they play together where they try to top each other by coming up with the worst pick-up lines. In today’s excerpt they are trading Irish-themed ones. Note, for the first line, imagine my geeky hero doing a really awful Irish accent. 🙂
“Ach, Lassie, you must help me. It’s your ancestral dooty.”
Playing along, her face screwed up in a frown, Lucy replied, “What do I have to do?”
“Drive the snake out of my pants.” Norm’s face heated as he said it, but a surprised peal of laughter burst from Lucy and banished his embarrassment.
“My turn.” Her eyes squinted in concentration but then she faced him, laying her palm flat over his on the counter then squeezing. “I’ve got a pot of gold hidden up my skirt…wanna follow the rainbow and see it?”
Norm leaned close and dropped his voice to a frantic whisper, “If you don’t sleep with me, then the leprechauns have already won.”
Hope you enjoyed, and don’t forget to check out all the other 8 sentence excerpts this week.

Note: I’m out of town this week and don’t know how much internet access I’ll have. So I’ll say in advance: thank you so much for reading!
