Weekend Writing Warriors-Tangled Shadows Snippte 4
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. We’re leaving Brooke’s point of view and are now seeing her from Galen’s. The two men may have some ulterior motive for being where they are…
“She reminds me of an Amazon, Galen Kinvin thought when he caught sight of Brooke Deverell. They’d had pictures of her, but none had showed her vitality or the spine- tingling energy she exuded.
The way she leaned back in her chair showed her long body to its best advantage. Her butt-long, chocolate-brown hair had been tied into thin braids and he had to restrain his hands from reaching out. He could discern the skeletory cyborg implants, but she had more than enough curves to make exploring her body a pleasure feast for the senses.
His blood pumped faster, most of it going south; Nikolai stood so close, he felt bathed in his lover’s heat, which didn’t help keep his arousal contained.
Pity she’s involved in this, otherwise we could’ve combined our work with some fun, Nikolai said to Galen through their mindlink. Despite having been together for decades, the intimacy of Nikolai’s voice in his head caused a little shiver of pleasure.”
The day job has sucked up most of my week and most of my brain this week. I am still working on the final read-through of Sexy Steampunk 2, but hope to have that back to my editor next week. It all depends on how long it takes me to write the blurb. Give me a synopsis any 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.
