  (*This means it is a manuscript I am working on now.)




Here is a sneak peek of a work in progress, a romantic comedy:



A scream tore out of her as someone snagged at her hair, and she yanked away. The pull on her scalp was nothing compared to the panic she felt now. She doubled her efforts as she raced down the pavement, her feet pounding in her matching green heels.

Please, please, God. I’ll never use a dating site again if you just get me out of this right now.

A hand shot out, grabbing her arm, and she screeched again.

“Darlin’, come on,” a male voice coaxed, and a wonderful scent drifted into her nose. But everything happened so fast, she couldn’t register what it was. “There’s no time.”

The voice was soothing. Ginger instantly calmed and found she was led up a set of brief stairs into a large brick building. Inside, she backed away from the glass a little, breathing a sigh of relief as she saw the group of men pass by after a few moments.

She could barely breathe and her forehead, upper chest and lower back were sweaty. Her feet and legs ached. She felt like this when she visited the gym, exhausted, practically passed out, draped over the handlebars of the treadmill. Now, each breath hitched in her chest. And she really wasn’t kidding about the boob pain. She winced, passed a hand over her face, and then turned to confront the new threat.

He was a looker, for sure, with dark, spiky hair and really nice blue eyes. He had handsome features, with a Roman nose and somewhat full lips that were made to be kissed. Get ahold of yourself, Ginger. The man wore a gray business suit. He’d obviously just come from work. And Jesus, he was tall and muscled, easily topping six feet.

His eyes widened as he took in her appearance.

“Not you too,” she moaned. But hell, for all she knew, maybe he’d never seen a melting green marshmallow before.

“Are you all right? Why were those men chasing you?”

She managed, “I don’t know.”

Because she really didn’t. They hadn’t warned that InstaSin would be like this, and it was only day one two. Extreme sexiness? Check, if the response she’d received was any indication. Grounds for a restraining order? Nope. They certainly hadn’t covered that in the description of the drug.

“Well, you’re safe now. I think they’re gone.”

His eyes were kind, she decided. And he didn’t look like he was sizing her up for a kink room or a coffin at all. Maybe InstaSin wasn’t supposed to work on every male. Duh, Ginger. If that was the case, there would really be a problem.

Thank God. She could breathe a little better now.

“Thanks for the rescue,” she offered.

He smiled. “Any time. Are you sure you’re okay?”

She nodded. “I think so. I…I mean, yeah. I’m good.”

“Honey, I’d be surprised if you were okay after all that.”

“A little shaken at first.”


She detected a slight twang in his speech, and realized he was the consummate Southern gentleman. As the image of her as a Southern belle, trussed up in one of those huge, ruffled gowns, came to mind, she burst out laughing. Then she sobered as she caught his frown. “Ah…um, sorry. Private joke.”

“I wish I knew the punchline.”

She couldn’t contain a smile, and knew she was blushing. The redhead’s curse. God, he was just too damned cute. Like one of those hot movie stars she couldn’t help fanning herself over. Maybe Henry Cavill? There was one fine man. And Chris Pratt wasn’t too bad either, at least in a rugged space cowboy kind of way. She cleared her throat.

He grimaced. “Right. I should let you get on with the rest of your evening.”

Yeah. First stop? Visiting her doctor friend, Laura —–, whom she knew would still be at work this late. She wanted her take on that red pill. “I really appreciate your help. And you’re right. I should go.” She reached out to push open the swinging door.

“Wait.” Behind her, there was a shift in movement.

She tensed, then slowly turned back, measuring his steady gaze. He certainly didn’t look crazed, like those other men had been. “Yes?”

“Will you let me drive you home?”

Was he crazy? He’d just pulled her off the street. Warning bells sang in her brain, and the theme to Halloween wasn’t far behind. “Oh. I, I’m not going home.”

“Then to the destination where you’re heading. Look, after what happened, I’m really worried about you. It’s not safe to be alone. And even if you insist, I’d rather make sure you got there in one piece.”

She stared at him for another moment, considering. He sounded completely sincere. Maybe it was a bad idea, but how often did a guy act like a gentleman around her? It was flattering. Plus, he seemed pretty harmless. Why else would he have stepped in when she was in trouble? “Well…ah, I suppose that would be all right.”

He nodded. “We can go out the back exit.” He reached in his suit pocket and used his cell phone. As he scrolled through his contacts, a pleasant scent drifted over again. Something mysterious, yet sexy and exotic, reminiscent of cinnamon, patchouli, oranges and leather all rolled into one. Odd, potent, and still irresistible.

“Yeah, Frank? Pull the car up in the garage, will you? We have a guest.” He nodded. “I appreciate it. See you in a few.” Then he pressed a button and shoved the phone back in his pocket.

Her eyebrows rose. Car? Guest? The man was speaking a different language. Maybe he’d just been talking to security or his valet, for all she knew.

“Come.” He offered his hand once more, this time waiting on her.

She glanced at it, and her stomach clenched for a second. Geez, she was about to accept an offer, go somewhere unknown with a complete stranger. This was what people warned you against. What if he was secretly a serial killer, or a closet Dom or something? She shuddered. No way would she ever let someone Fifty Shades her to death.

“Call me Lance. I promise you can trust me…well, I don’t know your name, ma’am.”

She nodded. “Maybe it’s better that way.”

A look of disappointment crossed his face. At least, that’s what she thought it was. “Very well. I respect your wishes. I’d still like to see you safely to your destination.”

“Okay. Thank you.”

“Of course.”

She took his hand then, knowing full well she was putting her life in his grasp. But, there was something about him that made her trust him completely. It was his eyes, she realized after a moment. Everything in that gaze was genuine, full of concern for her circumstances. His grip was firm, yet not harmful as he tugged her down the corridor to an elevator, pressing the button.

She glanced at him warily and he offered a reassuring smile.

“It’s all right. We’re just going down to the parking garage, where my driver is.”

“Oh. Like an Uber?”

“Not exactly.”

She glanced at the elevator. It was a shiny yellow, maybe made of brass or gold-plated. It couldn’t be real gold, right? But, it was still fancy. And he had a driver. How odd. Maybe he was an important man? She glanced down at his reddish brown dress shoes. Damn, were they Italian leather? More to cover the silence than anything, she ventured, “A personal driver, hmm? You must be special.” When the elevator dinged, they climbed in separately and she waited while he pressed ‘B’. The doors closed and the car shifted.

The man named Lance shook his head. “I have my own company, nothing more.”

“So humble,” she murmured. “You realize that’s no small thing.”
