Glad to have Diane here today and I’ve already bought my copy on pre-order. Yeah! That’s how to roll.🙂
Now here’s Diane:
Hi Eva, thank you so much for having me here today.
I’m visiting some of my favorite new author friends at the moment, and you are virtually the last but I’d love you to join me in my hop. I’m going to do a consecutive Excerpt of Flight of Her Life, my new Romantic Comedy especially for Christmas, so if you start at the beginning and follow along, by the end, you will have read my first two chapters.
I love life and I laugh a lot. I think that’s why funny things seem to happen to me, so I thought I would do a little competition the answers will be a pure guess, but I will give away a copy of Flight of Her Life to the two top scoring visitors. You have to answer all the questions on the first 6 sites and I will let you know the answers when we reach Layne, so follow me around. If you miss one out, you can go back, I won’t judge until I put the answers up on the 9th.
Look forward to seeing you around.
6, One of my favorite ever holidays was to Florida when my daughters were both young enough to totally believe the magic. What terrible disaster do you think happened?
- Did we lose all our luggage on the way there?
- Did my daughter get measles and we couldn’t fly home?
- Did we go for a hovercraft ride and get stuck in the Everglades miles from civilization?
Traveling from New York City to Houston to meet her future in-laws and announce her engagement, accident prone Bailey finds herself in a situation beyond her control. All flights are cancelled the night before Christmas Eve, leaving Bailey stranded at the airport with a cowboy from her past.
Against all odds, Sebastian manages to rescue Bailey from one disaster after another, but is it too late to rescue her from her future? Faced with a heartrending dilemma, does Bailey turn her back on the man who offers her a life of security, or does she run off to Maui with a cowboy?
Virtually running, she charged into a cubicle. She wouldn’t put it past him to give her two minutes and storm in there after her. Ripping her damaged tights off, she balled them up and threw them into the bin. She whipped her panties down, and perched with relief, but as she moved her left hand, her giant diamond swung to the underside of her finger and snagged on the elastic at the side of her panties. She wrenched her hand away and heaved in a surprised breath as the elastic pinged back on her leg. She leaped up and her panty elastic parted company with itself and her panties slid down her right leg.
“Oh, God. No. No, no, no, no, no, no.”
Her fingers shook, and she glanced anxiously at the cubicle door, almost expecting Sebastian to burst through and ask what the hell she had wrecked now. He’d be right of course, but it was beside the point. She shook her panties off her legs, deftly flicked them off the end of her foot and caught them efficiently in her hand. She smoothed her skirt, put the toilet seat down and sat on it. She studied the thin elastic, and rubbed at the sharp sting on her leg. She tried to focus her blurred vision as she tied the elastic in a neat little knot and gave it a firm tug to make sure it didn’t come undone.
Satisfied, she slipped them back on. She gave herself a quick check over in the bathroom mirror, and apart from her wild hair, she noted as she gave a quick sigh of relief, nothing else appeared out of place.
Sebastian leaned against the opposite wall as she walked out of the restroom. His arms were crossed over his chest, his attention firmly focused on her. She felt a warm rush while his eyes scanned the length and breadth of her body as though checking her out for damage. She pursed her lips and raised a superior eyebrow, so when his eyes tracked up to her face, he could see she was not impressed with his assumption that something had gone awry. He merely gave her a broad grin and pushed away from the wall, offering her his arm.
Bailey rolled her eyes, stepped forward and gave a shocked squeak as the elastic on her hip pinged open and her panties dropped straight to her ankles, almost tripping her up in the process. She slapped a hand over her mouth, her eyes widened in horror as she peered down at her feet, then back up at Sebastian.
His warm, blue eyes crinkled at the edges as he leaned over, wrapped his arms over his stomach and laughed and laughed until tears rolled down his cheeks, and his skin flushed a deep red against his burnished tan.
“Oh God, Bailey. Oh God.” Still laughing, he dropped to his knees and reached out to pick up her panties. The temptation to kick him while he was down was so strong she had to persuade herself to stand still, body completely frozen, face stoic. If she bent over to rip them out of his hands, the likelihood was, someone was going to get an eyeful of her naked butt.
His warm palm encircled her chilled ankle, sending her nerve endings into a riotous tremor, before he lifted her foot and unhooked her panties from her shoe. To keep her balance, she was obliged to place a reluctant hand on his thick, muscular shoulder.
He stood up and held the little scrap of material in front of her face.
“I knew I should never have left you alone, I suspected you were going to destroy something.” His deep chuckle kept bursting out of him as his mouth spread into a wide grin at her. “These are no good to you now, honey.” He stretched them out and the elastic continued to unravel itself from the skimpy piece of material it had been attached to.
She snatched them from his hand and stuffed them into her purse.
“Jesus, Sebastian, do you have to show everyone?”
He rubbed his mouth and squeezed the corners together, making his lips pout in his attempt to stop laughing. Her throat inexplicably went dry and she stared at him until he stood motionless, the smile suddenly wiped from his face as he gazed straight back at her.
