Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, where writers post 8-10 sentences of a published work or work in progress. Today I'm posting an excerpt from The Hitman Who Loved Me, the final book to McCoy's Boys.
This scene starts off with Terry (hero from book 2) questioning Sam on when he would date a woman who didn’t need to be institutionalized.
“There was nothing wrong with Annie.”
Terry roared with laughter. “She painted her toenails five times a day, all different colors.”
Sam shrugged. “She had cute feet, so what?”
“Didn’t she try to paint yours one day?”
He ignored that question. Terry would never let it down if Sam admitted that on one exciting night he had blue nail polish on one side and green on the other. He couldn’t refuse Annie. She had a smile that could undo the stitches on his gitch.
The McCoy empire is under siege, and Sam Hayes has been tapped to take care of the culprit. Sam knows better than to get involved with his target, but there’s something about Jamie that keeps him from simply finishing the job and moving on. Maybe the hard-bodied hitman just can’t wrap his mind around the fact that the first woman to set his soul on fire is a common criminal. The only thing Sam can do is keep her close. An easy enough task—if Sam doesn’t do something stupid. Like fall in love with the bombshell he was sent to kill….
