In the previous couple of Snippet Sunday posts, I’ve been sharing the first Flagman’s Folly book, A Rancher’s Pride. Today’s new clip from this clean romance comes from one of my favorite scenes with the hero and heroine:
Sam picked up one of Becky’s crayons and held his hand out to Kayla.
“How do you sign blue?” he asked, looking directly at her.
Kayla glanced down. “That’s not a blue crayon.”
“I was talking about your eyes. They’re very blue…and your cheeks are suddenly bright pink.” Sam smiled and leaned closer. “I can learn all my colors,” he murmured, “just by looking at you.”
Her heart thumped. She wanted to lean back but couldn’t. She should get up and walk away. Somehow, she couldn’t do that, either. “There are more signs than just colors, you know.” Her voice cracked on the last word.
He smiled. He knew just what he was doing to her. And darn him, he was enjoying it.
“True.” Sam smiled again. “How do you say I?”
She pointed her index finger at herself.
“And how do you say want?”
She hesitated then held both palms up and crooked her fingers as she pulled her hands toward her body.
He leaned even closer. “And how do you say a kiss?” he whispered against her ear.
From the cover:
Sam Robertson’s life just changed. In one short day, he found out that he’s a daddy; that his beautiful little girl, Becky, is deaf; and that her aunt, sign language teacher Kayla Ward, intends to fight him for custody.
There are plenty of reasons Sam shouldn’t fall for Kayla. A city girl like her has no place on his ranch, particularly when she’s his ex-wife’s gorgeous sister. But thanks to the judge’s orders, Sam’s spending a lot of time with Kayla, trying to give Becky the stable home she’s never known.
Despite their ongoing custody battle, Sam and Kayla’s love for Becky brings them closer than they ever expected, and Sam knows that no matter who wins in court, he could still lose—Kayla or his daughter.
