Cowboys & Mistletoe – Day 2

It’s Day 2 and the fun continues. If you missed yesterday’s post with the instructions about how to enter the giveaways, you can read it here. Besides, you won’t want to miss out on reading the first three segments of our Mad Lib Christmas story.

Here’s a quick refresher about how to play:

  1. Go to the Look Inside feature for each author.
  2. Find the required noun, verb, or adjective.
  3. Note your chosen words in a comment for a chance to win gift cards.

Now, our story continues . . .

Susannah shook her head, dislodging snow from her hair. Nick dropped to one knee beside her as her rosy lips turned up in a beguiling smile. “It was a good thing I landed on my ______ (noun).”

Nick arched an eyebrow at her, then offered her his hand. She ________ (verb) to her feet instead, cheeks pink, and gave him a shy smile. “We’d better look for your ax handle.”

Nick gave a low sigh as Susannah moved a step away from him. Impressing her was not going to be as easy as he’d hoped–especially with no way to bring in the _________(adjective) tree that she had her heart set on. What could he do? Offer to bring her back tomorrow? There were other men in town waiting in line for their chance to help Miss Susannah Sweetpeach with her holiday preparations, and she might just take one of them up on it.

“Susannah,” he blurted. “Uh…will you–I mean can you wait until tomorrow afternoon to get the tree? I’ll bring my spare axe, and we can come back–”

“Oh, I can’t tomorrow, Nick. I’ve already made plans.”

    • Oh good grief! Those words are towards the end of the “look inside” because I didn’t catch the rule of first chapter. So I went back and here my new ones are!
