Snippet Sunday: Day of the Dead ~ Dia de los Muertos #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday #8Sunday


Welcome Back Everyone! 

Today is Snippet #8! I'm so excited to have you read it!

 Today I'll be sharing a continued snippet from my newly published story Day of the Dead ~ Dia de los Muertos.
 
Last time we left off not knowing if Valentina's health was taking a turn for the worse.
 
**Note: The snippet has been modified to fit the 8 sentence limit.***

************************************************************************************************************************************
"So do you have a date or did you bring that extra coffee for me?" 
 
Xander smiled and handed her the cup of coffee and replied, "Can it be both?"
 
Valentina choked on her coffee. 
 
Now blushing she didn't even know what to say. She never thought he would ever be interested in her. 
 
She took another quick sip of her coffee and managed not to choke this time. 
 
No, he's not interested. He's just being sweet. He had to be only teasing her. 
 
************************************************************************************************************************************  
Do you believe that he is only being nice, or is he flirting?  
 
Find out next week on Sunday November 16th for snippet #9 of my paranormal romance Day of the Dead ~ Dia de los Muertos.

  1. If a man brings you coffee and asks if it can be a date, it's probably flirting. :D

    She's
    definitely interested, anyway.
