Six Sentence Sunday - Queen Bitch of the Callowwood Pack - Jeff's Dilemma


Welcome back, Sixers! It's Sunday again and I have a little piece of my new release to share. Thank you so much for coming to visit my snippet. I really appreciate it.


In this snippet of Queen Bitch of the Callowwood Pack, Jeff Lightfoot had to let Julianna leave from the funeral reception, but he knows she's his True Mate and he's finding it difficult to calm down after his revelation. Worse, he has to pretend he doesn't care. The scene is written in Jeff's POV.

Jeff had never felt the mating bond before, but the moment he touched Julianna, it roared into his awareness as clearly as the neon lights of Vegas. There’d been no doubt in his mind, and he’d been unable to leave her side from that moment on.
It killed him to let her drive away now.
His hormones sang like a rabid rock concert crowd, demanding he go find her and seal the bond now, but he held onto himself like a drowning man to a rope. No, I have to go back inside and socialize as the next packleader. I have to make it look like I’m considering all of them as potential mates.
 

Sounds like his mind is arguing with his heart, which might lead to blue balls. ;) Thanks so much for stopping by. There several very good authors on the Six Sentence Sunday list and a few of my favorites are Cara Bristol, Dianne Hartsock, Goran Zidar, Zee Monodee, Karla Doyle, Gem Sivad, and Sarah Ballance. Happy reading! :)

  10. Question: is this mating bond mutual? If not, he could be in trouble from more than expectations of others!

    1. The women do feel it, but Julianna doesn't know what it is. She hasn't figured out what she's always felt for Jeff is something more than lust. :)
