“Sugar?” Max looked at the house, wide-eyed. “Did a Pier One explode in Oklahoma City?”
“What? No. Possibly UPS truck, the guy was a little peeved when he was bringing in all the boxes.” Morgan looked tickled as a pig in shit.
“Uh-huh. Did you buy... Santa?”
“Oh, no. He’s still ensconced in the North Pole. I think. I could look it up on Amazon...”
“That looks like the weird little penguin from the commercial.” He pointed out a sparkly bird on a cupcake.
“Uh-huh. I love him. I named him Charlie. It’s a thing.”
Max grinned. Morgan had a lot of things that were a thing. It was one of his most endearing qualities. “Well, I like the shiny stuff on the bull horns.”
“You’ll like the new sheets, too.” Oh, there was evil in them there eyes.
“Oh, yes. The website called it Pinup Cowpokes.”
That grin made him a lot of promises.
Max and Morgan's story is called Oil and Water. :D
Comment for a chance to win one of my backlist titles. :D
Much love, y'all.
