Continuing with an excerpt from my book Fiendish and I'm picking up again with that. The excerpt picks up in the middle of chapter 3 and I will continue til the end of the chapter.

In the previous installments, Calida and Seth have seen each other again for the first time since their initial meeting. Calida's friend Macy has invited Seth to have dinner with them, only to ditch Calida once they arrive at the restaurant. We pick up with Calida trying to figure out what to do on this impromptu date.

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4

Her phone buzzed, bringing the screen to life. The reply from her friend popped up instantly before she could block it.
live a little. :)
A small grin tugged at the corner of her mouth when she read it. Taking a deep breath, she slid the phone into her pocket then looked up at me.
“I would enjoy having lunch. Dinner? Linner? Oh my goodness, did I just say linner?” Calida asked, giggling.
“Yes, I believe you did,” I replied, laughing as well. “Guess it makes sense, after all there is brunch.”
