#RainbowSnippets: Rise of the Alpha Squirrel

In my last couple of snippets, we met cute, fluffy, nut-obsessed Nathan, and his hot-as-roasted-chestnuts love interest Vince. This snippet comes from the beginning of the sequel, Rise of the Alpha Squirrel. If you’ve read Nuts About You, you know that at the beginning of Alpha Squirrel, Nathan sneaks into Vince’s home and plays a silly squirrely trick on him, and gets caught.

And then Vince commits a terrible crime–he calls Nathan…Nutsy. *gasps of horror*

And Nathan’s going to make him pay.

I’m aiming for a February 21 (or probably the 18th, because I have classes all day Thursday and it keeps me from obsessively clicking reload on the browser) release date for Alpha Squirrel, but you can see the cover now. 🙂

He didn’t go far—just out into the yard and up the post of the new birdfeeder seated conveniently outside the kitchen window. Good thing this Nutsy obsession was Vince’s only bad quality, or Nathan might have been tempted to go home. But with Vince, there was a lot more in the ‘good nuts’ pile than the ‘bad nuts’ one, so he stayed.

Didn’t mean he had to be all happy and cheerful though. Disgruntled, he fished out a fat black and gray sunflower seed and gnawed the shell open as he waited.

Check out the rest of the group’s snippets here.
