Spank in the Box

Another Saturday, another spank!

This is from my newly contracted holiday story, Catered Affair. I have an awsome cover from Decadent Publishing, although, at first I thought the couple was in a pie plate because the story has a foodie element to it. Guillermo asked why they were in a washing machine (in my defense, he's really pretty). What do you think?
Keep in mind this is unedited (the blurb too) and probably won't be out until Christmas time. I apologize for the whonky formatting. It looks fine until I hit publish. Here goes.

Excerpt:




Chantal looked around for the weasel-looking guy who’d let them into the apartment earlier. “Ixnay on the anguagelay.”

Monty squinted a clueless look in her general direction. “What?”
She whispered, “Pig Latin.”
“You know I’m not fluent, sweetie.” He swatted her rump with a firm open hand.
Chantal planted her knuckles on her hips, the kitchen knife still in her grasp.





Blurb:


Newly engaged, Chantal and Monty have been hired as caterers for Layton Industries annual Christmas party held at the Layton’s penthouse apartment. The problem is Steve and Alexa Layton’s plane has been grounded due to snow. Both couples struggle with the phase they are at in their respective relationships. Can a sexy kitchen, a box of produce and a security system help?

  1. Christmas! Your story is not going to be available until Christmas? Boy I know what I'm going to ask Santa to get me this year. And it's a camera. We're seeing them in the lens of a camera. At least that's what I think. Thanks for sharing, Kelli!

    1. Yep. It has a little voyeurism going on.

  2. I had to read the pig latin twice as I too am not fluent… :) You're ahead of things - not available until Christmas?

    1. I'm assuming it'll be Christmas. I think they should offer Pig Latin in college.

  3. Like the humor in the piece. Yes, I can see the pie plate and the washing machine, but I also see a camera lens.

    1. Always humor. I fall flat on my face when I try to write it straight.

  5. I love the humor there and I think the cover is very clever. Washing machine? Awww. The camera makes you want to know more.

  6. Interesting how when the versatile "Pig Latin" is introduced to a societal yarn, it always paints that picture of complacent humor... And his fluency coupled with the "command swat" -priceless... a unique snippet... ☀

  10. A sexy kitchen...many surfaces to accomodate two lustful sweethearts, a lot of fun implements, PLUS a box of produce and a camera? Woo-hoo! It's going to be a fun ride.
