Saturday Snippet – Brandi Evans

25 Sep

This snippet is from a work-in-progress I’m tentatively calling Heart of Stone. Mari McPherson is big sis to the heroine in my 1st novella Tempted, out now from Ellora’s Cave. Mari is having yet another argument with her bastard ex-husband. More importantly, she about to meet Demetrios, a sexy statue of a Greek gladiator—at least until he comes to life when she touches him!

All men should be rounded up and burned at the stake. Or possibly castrated with butter knifes. Mari wasn’t picky so long as they all suffered greatly, especially her bastard ex-husband Paul.

As she waited for the stoplight to turn green, she squeezed the steering wheel so hard her knuckles turned white and she practically screamed into her Bluetooth earpiece. “What do you mean you’re not bringing the kids back this afternoon? We had an—”

“They wanted to go to Splashtown, so I decided to take them. What’s wrong with that?”

“What’s wrong with that? What’s wrong!” When the light finally changed, she somehow managed to keep from punching the accelerator. Besides, she’d rather punch Paul. “We had an agreement. You get the kids Friday night, Saturday and Sunday morning. That’s it. If you wanted to take them on a little impromptu vacation, you should have left Friday, not Saturday afternoon. Especially not without fucking telling me! Madison has a softball game tonight for Christ’s sake.”

“Look, babe. Madison didn’t tell me about her game and—”

“It doesn’t matter what Madison did or didn’t tell you, babe. I told you.”


“No more buts, Paul.” She sucked in a deep breath. All arguing with Paul would get her was another prescription of Nexium and she needed another ulcer like she needed the pint of Ben and Jerry’s she’d shoveled through last night.
