“How would you like to meet some more authors?” Castle asked with an engaging smile. He was way too charismatic for her liking.

Beckett refused to be drawn in. “I’m not participating in your author poker night, again.”

“Not the poker night. Authors’ dinner put on by the publisher. I’d like you to come with me.”

“No, Castle. I won’t date you.”

“It’s not a date,” Castle insisted.

Beckett glared. She didn’t believe him. She would not be one of his arm-candy girls.

“Of course, the poker authors will be there.”

“I’ve already been introduced to them.” And had to fend off several advances from them.

“Don’t you want to meet Carver Edlund?”

Beckett didn’t pretend that she didn’t recognize the name. “He quit publishing his scifi… crap.”

Castle grinned and bounced. “Rumor is that the brothers that he was basing his main characters off of found out and threatened him.”

Beckett hmmmed.

“What about Thom Gemcity?” Castle wheedled.

Beckett tried to fake her disinterest. Aside from Richard Castle, Gemcity was her favorite author. “I bet he’s as annoying as you are.”

“You’re making assumptions, Beckett,” Castle told her with a smile. “I think you’d like him in real life. He was a working NCIS agent before publishing his first book and he kept his job and is writing on the side, even now that he’s a best seller.”


“Yep. So will you come?”

Castle was persuading her and she hated it. “Is this going to be black-tie?”

“Yep. Don’t worry, I’ve got a dress you can wear.”

“I hope it’s not one you already wore, ‘cause it won’t fit.”

Castle reminded, “I didn’t do bad picking out your last dress.”


“Great,” Castle said as if she had agreed. “Pick me up at seven,” and he was gone.

Last line = classic Castle. Also, Castle would LOVE Chuck. Just imagining Chuck getting all uptight while Castle peppers him with questions makes me laugh.
