Snippet from the current manuscript

More dialogue from the scrap file…

“By the way, the next time you’re upset with whatever I’m doing you could say stop, dragonfly or nymph or even peanut butter.”

“Peanut butter?”

“Yeah. I hate the stuff. I’d quit instantly to make gagging noises.”

Impulsively she pinched his side. As soon as her fingers released his skin, her chest constricted with fear.

“Ouch. What was that for?”

She let the breath she’d held out with a sign of relief. “Being a smartass.”

“I was serious.” His voice deepened further into sexy dominant man territory.

Oh, you’re dangerous. You make me believe in the impossible. She wriggled out of his hold, pulled back and aimed her fiercest glare at him. “You’re not treating this seriously. You wound needs proper medical attention.”

“Fine, you’re a horrible person and my injuries are your fault.” His voice lowered again. “Since I’m the injured party, I should decide the penalty.”

She swallowed a lump of fear and managed a nod.

“Good. Your nursing responsibilities will suffice as punishment…”

“Taking care of you isn’t torture.” She rolled her eyes.

He leaned back, crossed his arms and fixed his intense gaze on her. “Don’t think you’re getting off easy. You’re not.”

Dear God, the man redefined stubborn, manipulative and he was so dominant he made her bossy brother look reasonable.
