Hello Readers! I’m pleased to share excerpt from Life in the Chastity Zone by Holly Brandon as a part of blog tour, organized by Love Books Group. Check out the book details in this post.
Thirty-year-old Chastity (Chase) Morgan has always dreamed of her fairytale life—the perfect career, wedding, marriage, family, and on and on. A structural engineer, Chase is brilliant in her line of work, but keeping to her moniker, she is as chaste as they come. Although she doesn’t know the first thing about love and dating, everything changes when she meets Grant Stevens. Wedding bells appear to be right around the corner until he unceremoniously abandons her for another. Derailed but determined, Chase has to find a way to move on. Little does she know that sinister plans are at work to squash her hopes and dreams. While a psychic medium comes to her aide, it’s uncertain whether or not Chastity will follow the clairvoyant’s advice. Only time will tell if she’ll choose between throwing away her virginity and diving full force into the dating world, or clinging to her fairytale life plan.
There are bright red taillights in front of me. “Ah-ha, I gothim!” I let out gleefully, making a fast turn onto a familiar road just before Dollar Mountain; the snowcats the only beacon of light in this winter nightmare. It’s a wide berth lane providing enough room to fishtail, even though my SUV clips a few snow-laden evergreen branches. A gust of wind throws a pile of snow on the windshield, obscuring my vision. I plow into something; the SUV skids. I jerk the steering wheel hard; ice and slush push their way into the wheel wells, creating a harsh grating sound.
“Ahh!” I yelp. The car starts spinning like the Disneyland Tea Cup ride before coming to an abrupt halt, smacking into a wide snow-covered area. Fortunately, I don’t have to contend
with other cars behind me.
“Phew! Thank God!” I utter even though I have no idea what to expect of the exterior damage.
My relief is momentary. In my peripheral vision, I spy something heading in my direction. Reflexively, my gloved hands shield my face as I brace for impact from an airborne
snowman tray filled with two-dozen frosted cupcakes. There’s a small thud and then silence. Taking a quick peek to my right, I assume the interior damage isn’t too severe, considering the
snowman tray has made a perfect landing on the passenger seat. Wrong!
The cupcakes I slaved over earlier today have taken on a different form—a surrealistic one, to be exact. Crumbs are EVERYWHERE. Random patterns of frosting and remaining batter have not only landed on the front of my shirt but also on the floor, the windows, and—just in time for the holidays—a dripping-off-the-rearview-mirror version.
“Hmmm … I imagine Picasso would be proud,” my lame attempt at humor. With everything happening so fast, I don’t know whether I should laugh or cry. My logical mind tells me that the best I can do is to focus on the rent-a-car and not my dad’s booming voice when he sees the damage.
Holly Brandon breaks free from her analytical side to produce Life in the Chastity Zone. Holding a Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. in Civil Engineering, Holly is best known for her published works in the Journal of Earthquakes, Earthquake Engineering, and Engineering Vibrations and Earthquake Science. Unbelievable as it may appear, many of the scenes in Life in the Chastity Zone are based on true-life experiences. Holly invites readers to follow Chastity on her crazy and hilarious adventures in her search for love and happiness. With more to come, Life in the Chastity Zone is the first in an unforgettable, brand-new Chastity Zone series.
