Smookie and the Bandit

Short Story in Love Bites Anthology

By Brenda Jackson

HQN - June 2012

Contemporary Romance

Five authors coming together and providing short stories for an anthology. Love Bites is an anthology of five romances written to support a charity.

Bandit had had his fun, and now he was going to have to pay the piper. Or rather, it was Quest Newman who was going to have to pay. His Yorkie would simply continue enjoying the good life. Quest took his responsibilities seriously, and he had failed to neuter Bandit. But he wasn't going to take Raquel Capers claims at face value. He was famous, had played in the NFL, and he would check out Raquel's claims to make sure she wasn't trying to scam him.

Once he confirmed she was legit, he decided to just go on and continue checking her out.

Smookie and the Bandit is sexy read laced with humor. The interaction when Raquel confronts Quest about Bandit's behavior, and the consequences of those actions, was hilarious. This is a hot read with an underlying message of the importance of having your pet spayed or neutered.

Included in Love Bites are: Love Unleashed by Lori Foster, Smookie and the Bandit by Brenda Jackson, Dog Tags by Catherine Mann, Mane Haven by Jules Bennett, and Molly Wants a Hero by Virna DePaul.
