Welcome back, Sixers! Thank you for returning to read more of my WIP, Not a Dragon's Standard Virgin. It really makes my day when you comment, so thanks for that, too! If you have a chance, check out the other authors participating in Six Sentence Sunday. Three of my favorites, and upcoming interviewees, Cara Michaels, Kallypso Masters, and Morgan Kearns, are posting today, too.
In honor of my anniversary (Mr. SM and I are celebrating 7 years today) I'm offering this snippet. Jonarrion has granted Isabelle's favor and realized during the afterglow that she's the only female he'll ever want. She's his True Mate, but he hasn't told her his true nature. Isabelle, however, thinks he just wants to do his duty to her for taking her virginity.
"I dinna ask ye to take me innocence to make ye marry me. I thought I made that clear.”
“I’m not asking you to be my wife just because I took your maidenhead!” Jonarrion retorted, his own anger and frustration at her rejection kindling. “It’s you I want; you I need in my life when the nights turn dark and cold and lonely.”
“And how do ye ken that, Master Swift?” Isabelle asked archly.What could he tell her? That he was a dragon and the Goddess had granted dragons the knowledge of their True Mates by their need to bite their partners during mating?
Uh-oh. This is why honesty is so important in intimate relationships. ;) Jonarrion has his work cut out for him. I hope you've enjoyed Not a Dragon's Standard Virgin. Next month, I'll introduce you to the Queen Bitch of the Callowwood werewolf Pack. Happy reading and I'll see you next week!
