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.

Love how you’ve worked in all those interesting details…the mind link, the cyborg implants. This just gets better and better.
Thank you, Eleri.
Love the details you’ve added. I’m very intrigued by the story. Adding it to my TBR for sure.
Thank you, Sarah.
I like the details about the cyborg implants. Nikolai sounds like an intriguing character.
Thank you, Frank. Nikolai is definitely a character that keeps you thinking about him;).
This is really interesting. I like the intimacy between the two. We could make a deal. You write my synopses and I’ll write your blurbs. 😉
Deal! And thank you.
Mmm mmm mmmm. Love that description! Very cool how they can communicate through their mindlink. Well done, Tina! 🙂
Thank you, Evelyn. The mind link also comes in handy during all sorts of activities…;)
Sounds like an interesting threesome coming up.
Thank you, Sue Ann. It is definitely interesting;).
I love that this starts with a loving, established relationship—it gives a basis to build on, and also something to risk! Very nice. 🙂

I loved the excerpt, can’t wait to read the entire book! Just a terrific snippet…
I put this on my wishlist. I like the men and their mindlink!
Lol, thank you, Melisse. This mindlink definitely has a number of uses…;).
You work details in so well, that a few sentences are teeming with info without it feeling like you gave an infodump. Nicely done!
A nice survey of her with details that get the men’s minds racing. And I liked the addition of Nikolai’s voice in the mindlink also causing pleasure… a second touch of attraction.
Thank you, August.
