Sneak Peek Sunday!

#SPeekSunday


Welcome to Vintage Vonnie on Mother's Day. I hope all you moms are having a love-filled day.

I'm sharing the first six paragraphs of Back Where You Belong. This story is my second entry into the Honky Tonk Hearts series, that requires one pivotal scene taking place in the Lonesome Steer Honky Tonk outside Amarillo, Texas, along the famed Route 66.


What the hell?

Tyler Desmond whirled away from the shot he was about to make at the pool table to grasp for whatever caused the sudden, stinging pain at the back of his neck. When his fingers closed around a dart, he yanked the offending object out, searching through the crowd in the Lonesome Steer Honky Tonk for the bastard who dared throw one at him.

His cousin Billy Wayne leaned in close as if to examine the dart’s point of entry. “Damn, that’s gotta hurt.”

Tyler’s eyes narrowed on the culprit. The object of his wrath stood about eight feet away, her face glowing red like embers in a branding fire and eyes mushrooming when his gaze zeroed in on hers.

He handed his cue stick to Billy Wayne and growled, “Not as much as one female’s about to. You can be damn sure of that.”

Three women, her friends no doubt, scurried back to their table, leaving her to face him alone. He slowly sauntered toward her, gathering his words as he approached. He’d cut many men to size with his acidic tongue. This woman would be no different.

Oh, Val, you are so right. He does have his hands full with her. It's a fun story, yet poignant in many places.
