“Good God, Blair,” he said, sobering, “I thought you were a sweet, compliant girl.”
“I haven’t been a girl in a very long time, and I’m far from compliant.” She wanted to be angry with him, to hate him, to rid herself of the memories. “I’m not sure I was ever sweet.”
She saw his eyes darken; saw the set of his mouth turn serious.
“No, Blair, you were sweet. Sweet as fire, burning hot.”

Many thanks to everyone for commenting on my snippets from Blinded by the Light. I've been editing, but very slowly. Life sometimes has a way of getting in the way plans. I may be missing for a while. When I can, I'll comment on snippets. When things are good, I'll post, though it'll be from something different.
I signed up this week, thinking I'd more time to choose a snippet to post, but as it turns out, I'm rushed. So, here are a few lines, randomly chosen, from Against the Wind, currently available at Amazon. This is a little something from when my hero and heroine first met, six years earlier. Michael is the one remembering. Blair has just told him she was a sophomore at an exclusive private college, but that she'd wanted to fly jets. She never told her parents. Michael speaks first:
She’d looked at him, the moon reflected in her eyes. “It’s not something they would expect from me.”
He wanted to ask what they did expect, but he knew. A good marriage to a successful member of their social set. She wouldn’t get that from him.
But he knew what he could give her. “Want to come fly with me?”
(Michael did have a pilot's license.)
