Weekend Writing Warriors-Tangled Redemption Snippet 14
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.
In last week’s snippet Nasir turned “owning” Sydney into a competition. Miguel is not happy that he allowed himself to be sucked into one of Nasir’s games, but he couldn’t stop himself. He expected the competition to take place in the ring, but the Big Bad has turned it into a sexual contest where Miguel and Jayden share Sydney. This snippet is a couple of pages later and in Sydney’s point of view.
“Sydney vacillated between raging anger, worry and arousal. Of all the things she’d anticipated, being handed over as a toy to two of the most attractive men she’d seen in a very long time had not been part of her imagination.
And that was the problem.
How could she even consider this? They worked for the monster, probably had done plenty of monstrous things themselves. But she had taken the time to notice the sleek lines of Calatrave’s body, the delicious package that was hidden behind just one thin layer of clothes. And then there was Jayden. There wasn’t the instant need to touch she had with Calatrave, but his body was a piece of art and she wanted to stroke and explore.”
Here is the 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 a sadistic Feral commander. 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.
In an attempt to break the commander makes her the pet of two of his 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.
Tangled Redemption will release on October 22nd.
I’m on the road at the moment and not quite sure when I’ll have access to internet. I’ll do my best to come around today, but it may be later in the week.
Have an amazing week and as always Happy Writing!

Whew! Let’s hear it for adrenaline! (fans self)
Sounds like she might favor Miguel physically, but I’m guessing Jayden will have his own charms, too . . .
This continues awesome, Tina. 🙂
Thank you, Sarah;). *dances around with delight*
Thank you, Cara.
What a dilemma! Yes, let’s see what’s beneath the thin layer of clothing before we decide how upset she should be about all this. Great eight!

Poor woman…about to be ravaged by two sexy men. I really feel her pain. lol. Fabulous, as always, Tina!

I just don’t think I can muster up much sympathy for Sydney right now. I’d be happy to volunteer for troubles of this sort. 🙂
Wow, spoilt for choice, eeny meeny…hot!
Oh, decisions…decisions. Which man first, ah go ahead Sydney enjoy them both : )
That’s two handsome bright spots in an otherwise dark situation!
Well that’s a fun twist and certainly not what she (or they) were expecting! Quite a hot snippet!
Not sure we really have a dilemma…. 🙂 Lovely snippet !!
