It’s Saturday and I’m excited because I’m off to see the new Star Wars today! Fingers crossed it will be good 🙂 In the meantime though, I’m happy to be joining in the My Sexy Saturday blog hop. The theme this week is Holidays, so I’m sharing an excerpt from my Christmas story, An Angel for the Tree. Hope you enjoy – and don’t forget to check out the other blogs here: http://mysexysaturday.blogspot.co.uk/
Rachel was tugging on his hand again, seemingly oblivious to the adults interaction. “Daddy, come make a snow angel with me, Laurel was showing me how.”
He stared down at her, completely out of his depth. “Erm, I should probably go back inside.”
Her lower lip jutted out. “Ple-ase, Daddy. I can show you how to do really good ones.”
Yeah, he wasn’t going to win on this, and he let her drag him across to a wide patch of clear snow.
“Wait a second.” Laurel called out behind him. She pulled the woolly hat off her head and handed it to him. “You’ll catch cold without a hat on.”
Daniel stared in it confusion and laughing she stepped over and pulled it down over his ears.
“How can you live out here and not have a woolly hat?”
For a moment he just stared at her dumbly. He could smell the scent of her hair on the silly woolly thing and for a moment her fingers lingered, lightly brushing his hair back where it settled, before she seemed to catch herself and pull back. There was an odd warmth running through him, despite the snow falling around him.
