Weekend Writing Warriors-Tangled Redemption Snippet 11
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.
I am continuing to share parts of Tangled Redemption, book 4 in the Celestial Surrender series. We first meet Sydney in Tangled Hunger, book 2 of the Celestial Surrender series. Here is the preliminary blurb:
Sydney Radnall is no man’s toy, despite fate’s attempt to make her just that. A kidnapping puts her at the mercy of the sadistic Feral commander she had tried to take down. Being held prisoner is bad enough, but her Naema blood is powerful. In her current Vampiric company her presence is like ringing a dinner bell.
When the leader tries to break her by handing her over to his inner circle she ends up as the pet of two lieutenants. Miguel is one of the most dangerous men she has ever met, but she can’t stop the attraction blazing between them. Then there is Jayden, a Vampire who is as surprising as he is sexy. Two Vampires she should not be attracted to, should not want to surrender to, should not trust.
But things aren’t always what they seem. Secrets and lies shadow their connections, making it impossible to see clearly. What are the chances of her finding lifemates while surrounded by enemies? And making the wrong decision could not just shatter her heart. It could cost her life.
In last week’s snippet Jayden watched Sydney face off with the Big Bad who is currently trying to decide what to do next with Sydney. He is surrounded by his lieutenants. Jayden is one of them and we are in hiss point of view, but the Big Bad speaks first. Interesting punctuation has been used.
“I am surrounded by my best and brightest. We’ve made a lot of progress and are only a few days away from our biggest coup to date; you all deserve a reward.”
Every muscle in Jayden’s body tensed; if Zwelenki didn’t give her to him he would fight any of the other lieutenants for her.
“Well, who wants this delicious Naema as their personal slave?” He raised his hand to stop responses. “She is too valuable to just tear apart. Whoever takes her has to keep her alive.” His smile clenched Jayden’s insides. “That doesn’t mean she has to be happy about it.”
Tangled Redemption is back with my editor and I am moving on to Dirigible Are Forever. And my mum has come for a visit from Germany. She is staying with my brother at the moment, but the plan is for me to head north for a visit today. This means I may not be able to come around until later tonight.
I am trying to decide what to do next. I had planned to work on one story, but circumstances are making me put that one aside and move on to something else. I just need to find my focus and decide what that will be. Too many ideas and concepts, too few concrete plans;).
Have an amazing week and as always Happy Writing!

interesting last line – I should say she doesn’t have to be happy about it. Great pace overall in this, and the blurb is well-put.
Thank you, Frank.
The story is heating up! Hope you have a great time with your mother!
Oh, you have no idea, Cara;).
Thank you, I did.
I was hoping Jayden would get his fangs into her. I’m looking forward to reading her reaction to Big Bad’s comments. Great, tension filled snippet.
Oh, Alexis, the fangs are a problem, but everything else? Definitely getting into her;).
Terrific powerful snippet. You drew me right into that tangled web.
Thank you, Charmaine.
Oh wow–what a world you’ve built, Tina!
Thank you, Teresa.
Love the last line! That is my kind of villain 🙂
Thank you, Botanist.
I really don’t like the Big Bad!!! Yikes!
Yay, my job here is done, Millie;). Thank you.
Ay yi yi…he seems to be twisted in knots. Will he get her? I sure as hell hope so!
You’ll find out next week or the week after;). Thanks for stopping by.
That last line is superlatively evil, Tina. And I can feel Jayden’s tension in my stomach—whew!
Thank you, Sarah. That line is one of my favourite;).
Ew, creepy. What is it with bad guys and sex slaves? At least we can hope Jayden will be better than the others.
Oh, he will be;).
Uh-oh, tough times ahead! Intriguing eight!
Thank you, Christina.
…she doesn’t have to enjoy it. Very menacing and very tense. Well done in a few short sentences.
Hope you had fun visiting with your mom! Big Bad is truly worthy of his name. Deliciously evil as always. lol. Great work, Tina!
The Big Bad is certainly living up to his moniker.
That he is;).
