Weekend Writing Warriors-Shadow Codex Snippet 4
Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors, the perfect place to discover new authors and fall in love with their writing. Each Sunday we share 8 to 10 sentences from a current or finished manuscript. Click here for the rest of the amazing writers participating.
I’m continuing to share from my latest Shadow Codex. Last time we discovered Caleigh was just a little bit gummed by the fact that saving the world meant she missed her book club and thereby one of the few opportunities to spend time with sexy Sawyer. But maybe he is much closer than she thinks…
Steps sounded behind her. She turned around with a smile that died away rather quickly. Kind of hard to smile when your jaw was busy touching the floor. “Sawyer? What are you doing here?”
His eyes widened for a second, but he was much better at catching himself. “Caleigh, what a delight. To answer your question, I am here to see a man about a book.”
She pressed her lips together, struggling to find her brain—why did he have to look so sexy in one of his great suits? He could give Daniel Craig a run for his money.
One witch. One shifter. One angry god hell-bent on the destruction of the world.
Witch Caleigh hunts for the Shadow Codex. She has seven days to unearth it and learn the spell to banish a god before he can do the wipe out the world thing. She didn’t anticipate being joined by sexy Sawyer, the man she’s had a crush on for months. After having suffered devastating loss she’s no longer willing to risk her heart, so a crush is all it can be.
Sawyer has one goal: fulfil his duty as alpha and protect his pack at all cost. Being sidetracked by luscious Caleigh wasn’t part of the plan. When he discovers they are after the same book he’s happy to savor every moment with her. That is all he can do. Because bringing a human into a world where physical prowess is everything would kill her.
The chemistry between them grows explosive until danger catapults them over the edge. Caleigh has to decide how much she’s willing to risk. Sawyer needs to determine if his pack is all that matters. When danger closes in it may be easier to banish a god than to face their inner demons.
Things have been a bit crazy for me. A couple of weeks ago I was at the Romantic Times Convention in Las Vegas. It was absolutely amazing. Coming back I had quite a bit of catching up to do at work. And next week I’m going to be in Ottawa at Romancing the Capital. I’m incredibly excited about going as it’s one of the funnest and best conferences I’ve ever been to. If you’re in the are you should definitely come by for the Saturday Signing. It’s open to the public;).
Happy Sunday and have a fabulous and productive week!
And here are a couple of images of Sawyer’s other half:

Why indeed? Great snippet!
Oh, nice that she has some sexy company while she saves the world. 🙂
I wonder how she is going to bewitch him if she can barely speak around him.
Fun snippet. She’d better get her act together or he’s going to bowl her right over.
Thanks, and she’s stronger than she thinks;).
LOL! So maye missing the book club to save the world won’t be so bad after all 🙂
I have this on my TBR, and the snippets are really enticing, so keep it up!
Thank you, Veronica;).
I now have an image of Daniel Craig as a wolf emblazoned on my brain. Thanks! 😀
I live to help;).
The snippet was great, but I have to admit I especially liked your intro line, “gummed by the fact that saving the world meant she missed her book club and thereby one of the few opportunities to spend time with sexy Sawyer.”
Lol, I meant to say “bummed”. Glad my mistake still made you smile.
Suits are my favorite thing too. Great snippet. 🙂
Fantastic line –> “Kind of hard to smile when your jaw was busy touching the floor.” Made me smile, Tina! 🙂
