Still pulling from my women’s fiction lwcover300x446novel The Lone Wolf.

After her husband’s infidelities are revealed, Kasey Sanford just wants to rediscover who she is. After an abusive childhood and years as a career soldier, Andrew Adams just wants someone to tell him that he’s doing the right thing with his life. When their paths cross, Kasey and Andrew embark on a tumultuous journey that demonstrates just what they’re willing to do to save the ones they love.

In this scene, Kasey has just had a small argument with her husband David because she won’t come in from working in the garden to make him breakfast. He’s trying to make it up to her.

I turned back to the flower bed, but David grabbed my hand and said, “I’m sorry. We can go out for breakfast, okay?”

I stared at him, not saying anything.

He pulled me towards him and said, “Don’t be like this. I’ll make breakfast for you.”

“You’re a horrible cook.”

He grinned. “See, that’s another reason why I need you around: you keep my ego in check.”

  1. So natural and fun dialogue. Smart couple thanks to you.

  2. This snippet feels totally believable, like the aftermath of a real argument. Nicely done.

  3. I echo the others – a very believable and everyday conversation, but well done. Made me smile. Great 8!

  4. I just want to smack him;). Great 8!
    Just a question on where we are in the book, has she found out about his infidelities yet?

    1. Yes, she knows about them but he’s said he’s sorry and they’re trying to work it all out.
