Yesterday I shared a sneak peek of January Girl as we countdown the days to January 3! Is it here yet? How about now?! Caitlyn Wallace is Keira and Will’s oldest daughter and, like her mom, she is no man’s fool. I love a spunky heroine with a sense of humor and take no prisoners attitude!
Today’s snippet shows just a bit of that.
“It’s over between us, Sammy. I don’t know how to say that to you any more clearly. Go back to Ms. Middle School Music.”
Sammy shook his head rapidly. “No. No. I don’t want her. She didn’t get it. Didn’t like,” he swallowed loudly, “what we like.”
Caitlyn flushed with anger, balling her fist. She’d never hit anyone before, but she was more than ready to kill him. “How dare you—”
“I think perhaps you should move on. The lady told you it’s over.”
Caitlyn was startled when Lucas decided to enter the conversation. She assumed he would move on at the first sign of Sammy’s drama. For some strange reason, knowing he was there allowed her to calm down. While she was fairly certain her punch wouldn’t leave a mark, Lucas Whiting looked the type to do some serious damage to Sammy. Which was exactly what she wanted.
“Who are you?” Sammy kept his tone fairly non-confrontational. Probably because he was smart enough to take one look at Lucas and know he wouldn’t win in a physical fight against the man.
“I’ll tell you who I am. I’m your worst nightmare if you don’t get out of this pub and leave this woman alone.”
Sammy blinked a couple times, no doubt trying to figure out if he’d heard what he thought he’d heard. Dumbass actually looked at her for help, and it took all the strength she had not to roll her eyes.
“Go home, Sammy. Don’t come back.”
The air seemed to seep out of him as Sammy held her gaze a second longer. And then, he turned to leave.
She twisted back toward Lucas, grinning despite her annoyance with basically everything at the moment. “What the hell was that? It was like you were channeling Liam Neeson or something for a second. I will find you. I’m your worst nightmare,” she mimicked in a deep, deadly voice.
Lucas didn’t look her way, didn’t even acknowledge her joke. Instead, he continued to watch Sammy’s retreating form.
