Jacquie Rogers: The 777 Game

I was tagged twice to play the 777 Game, so I guess I better belly up to the bar and join the fun. 

Special thanks to Ginger Simpson and Meg Mims for getting me into this mess. You ladies are troublemakers, for sure.

So here's the deal:
  1. Go to page 77 of your current work in progress.
  2. Scroll down 7 lines.
  3. Paste the next 7 sentences into your blog.
Then tag 7 more authors to carry forward the 777 game. Add their links, and remember to link to the person who tagged you… (Also, let everyone know on Facebook!)

Here's page 77, down 7 lines, next 7 sentences of my May release, Much Ado About Mavericks, book 3 of the Hearts of Owyhee series (setup--the heroine has to teach the hero how to rope, but it seems as though he's teaching her a few things, too!):
That a man could ride as well as he did but not be able to throw a decent loop hornswoggled her, but she was determined to teach this greenhorn how to be a cowhand.
Much as she groused about it, she had to admit she kind of liked showing Ben how to rope, especially when she stood behind him, her hand guiding his wrist. Sometimes he leaned back against her breasts, and when he did her insides went all jiggly like calf jelly. But mostly, she liked his smile when he did manage to throw a pretty loop, then would glance at her for approval.
“This better?” he said, twirling the loop over his head in a nice, easy circle.
“Your loop ain’t big enough.” She stood behind him, correcting his wrist movement. “Now keep it twirling like this.”

I've giggled my way through Much Ado About Marshals and now I'm starting Madams. Can't wait for this one. Your writing is so entertaining and well-done. :)

Thanks, Meg. I'm working hard on it!

Ginger, I'm glad you liked Marshals and I hope the ladies keep you entertained, too. Mavericks is a little on the out-there side, so of course is one of my favorites. With luck, others will think so, too. :)
