Snippet Sunday: To Pay Or Not To Pay....

Today's Snippet is from my Toni Collins romance, Immoral Support, originally published by Silhouette, soon to be available in ebook format. This is the story of ex-spouses and reporters for rival newspapers, Kathleen Wilder and Mel Riggs, both of whom have contracts to write books about the same local news story....

 
"What would you do if I were kidnapped?" she wanted to know.

"Sit back and wait."

She sat up and looked at him. "What?"

"I'd wait to see how much they'd pay me to take you back."

"You louse!" She hit him with a pillow.

He laughed. "They wouldn't keep you twenty-four hours. You're too much trouble."

  9. That's so awful. If she is that much trouble they'll kill her instead of giving her back.
