#Rainbow Snippets: Rise of the Alpha Squirrel

For all my friends in the US. *ducks*

Another tidbit from the sequel to my weresquirrel romance Nuts About You. 🙂 (This goes a line or two beyond the 6 sentence limit, but it sets up next week’s snippet so well… )

Don’t forget to check out the other snippets at our Facebook Group!

It didn’t take long. Vince appeared in the archway that led to the hall, wearing only Nathan’s absolutely favorite pair of shorts, and scratching his belly absently. He opened the refrigerator and retrieved a large measuring cup full of dark, grainy-looking pancake batter.

Vince put the cup on the counter and balled up the plastic wrap that had been keeping it fresh.

“Pancakes,” he called out the window.

Nathan turned his nose up and then, for extra emphasis, spun and gave him the ‘talk to the tail’ treatment. He loved Vince’s pancakes, but he was going to make the man work for the privilege of feeding them to him.

Some clunks and the unmistakable sound of the frying pan being put on the stove almost made him turn around, but he held firm. No more Nutsy. He was going to win that argument or die trying.

    This is such a fun story! And I think about it every time a picture of a squirrel crosses my FB feed.

      And there’s been a lot of pictures lately, haven’t there? I can’t believe I didn’t know there was a Squirrel Appreciation Day. Nathan is ashamed of me, because HE knew.

    Little sweet fluffy Nathan, I love him! Can he resist the pancakes, though? 😉

      They’re buckwheat. And Vince has a few tricks up his sleeve. 🙂

    “Nutsy” is just adorable. I can’t wait to read these. Book 1 is on my Kindle waiting for me to finish a couple I’m reviewing, then I’m onto it 🙂

      Once does not simply call an alpha squirrel Nutsy…

    Chuckle! Silly squirrel.

    • Kate Lowell - January 24, 2016 Reply

      Very silly. But a lot of fun too. 🙂

    Haha, I love Nutsy.

    • Kate Lowell - January 24, 2016 Reply

      Oooh, I promise not to tell Nathan. 🙂

    I love how Vince totally knows he’s there and is trying to cajole him with pancakes.

    • Kate Lowell - January 24, 2016 Reply

      Vince is a smart man. He knows that alpha squirrels are susceptible to bribes of the culinary sort.

    These are the sweetest stories!

    I am amazed that squirrel shifting interests me! (Particularly since I’m not fond of squirrels.) So cute1

      I’m glad we can throw a slightly different light on squirrels for you!
