Weekend Writing Warriors-Tangled Shadows Snippet 3
Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors. Each Sunday we share 8 sentences from a current or finished manuscript. Click here for the rest of the amazing writers participating.
Today’s snippet comes a little bit after last week’s. It is still from Tangled Shadows, book 1 in the Celestial Surrender series. Brooke is following the progress of two very attractive men across the bar while taking a com message. The two guys are incredibly attractive and keep distracting her. But then she makes a discovery.
“Galen winked at her. He turned to Nikolai and said something.
Nikolai threw back his head and laughed. He flashed fangs.
Jade, he’s a Vampire. No wonder everything in her stood at attention. Vampires had a reputation for sexual magnetism all across the universe.
She looked at the smiling Galen; nope, no sign of fangs, but he radiated power.”
I am still neck-deep in the edits for Sexy Steampunk 2 and in the back of my mind am mulling over Tangled Redemption. Now if there were just a few more hours in the day…
Have a wonderful Sunday and a fabulous week. As always, Happy Writing!
After losing not only her ship but also three days of her memory in a freak explosion, Space Captain Brooke Deverell wants only to forget her troubles for one amazing night and fulfill her wildest fantasy.
She gets that and more from Vampire Nikolai and ArchNaema Galen. The men have long been lovers and welcome her into their world of extraordinary sensuality. For one blissful night, Brooke believes she’s found her soul mates—but her happiness is short lived when she realizes she’s actually been kidnapped. The men hunted her down under the assumption she sold her crew and human cargo to Feral Vampires as blood slaves.
After realizing her amnesia is real and of a paranormal nature, they find themselves at an impasse. To prevent a galaxy-wide war they must work together. The three discover their sensual partnership can heal her mind. But for a complete and successful union, Brooke has to decide if she can forgive the initial deception and open her heart to the two men who stir her blood.
You can buy Tangled Shadows from amazon, Ellora’s Cave or Kobo.

Very intriguing discovery. Love the draw she feels, and her awareness of the situation. Great descriptions.
(Still playing, though my link isn’t on the wewriwa site)
Oh wow. That blurb sounds great. Like the 8 too. 🙂
(I also have to say your Rescue by Ruin cover in the sidebar is fabulous. I’m going to check that book out too just cuz of the cover! lol)
Lol, thank you, Beth. I was blessed by the Cover Gods;).
Sounds like she’s more drawn than fearful.
That she is, Sue Ann, but she saw them kiss, so she doesn’t believe them interested.
Damn those sexy vampires and their sexiness! 😀 Great eight, Tina!
Lol, Evelyn, Vampires and Border Security;).
The premise of this is so intriguing and I enjoyed the excerpt very much. When you figure out how to get more hours in the day be sure to tell us, ok?!
Thank you, Veronica. Lol, if I ever discover the secret I will share it with you and make millions selling it to the rest of the world;).
I’d be distracted, too! 🙂
I like how this is going—and I’m interested in knowing what an ArchNaema might be.
Me, too, Sarah;). You find out more about Naemas and their culture throughout the story.
I would love to know what Galen said to Nikolai;)
Lol, you will have to use your imagination, which I am sure is more than up for it;).
Now, I just wonder what she is going to do with this information.
The polarity of vampire magnetism is just another of the many mysteries of the universe.
