Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors! Thank you so much for visiting and if you choose to comment, I really appreciate it. Most of these snippets are unedited, works in progress, and while my snippets aren't consecutive, they are in order within the story. You can read last week's snippet HERE.
Today, I'm offering another snippet from an upcoming paranormal romance available April 2nd 2013, entitled A Hell Hound's Fire. SQUEEE one more week! :D Ahem, not excited in the least. ;) In this snippet, Sarah Flanagan and her son Liam came to Cloudburst, Colorado, seeking help in escaping a demon. They're werewolves, Moon Singers, and have arrived at Alex MacLaren's safe house. Alex has just made dinner and Sarah has offered to help, laying her hand on his arm. This is in Alex's POV.
He fell into her pale green gaze and his heart stirred along with his cock. This one, this one is the right one. His Brother let loose a whimper and Alex almost pulled Sarah into his arms and kissed her. But lightning flashed and thunder shook the house, making him jump. He stepped back.
“You’re welcome. Just all part of the plan to keep you safe. You’ve had a rough night and I’m happy to help.” Alex glanced out the windows to see rain smattering the glass in great sheets. “Looks like we caught a break, though.”
A cute crease developed between her auburn brows. “How so?”
“Fitzroy said water confuses demons. I figure between the river and the rain storm, we got it covered.”
Oops! He almost got caught his his hand in the cookie jar...or his lips on hers. ;) There are several great authors on the Weekend Writing Warrior list and a few of my favorites are Sarah Ballance, Charmaine Gordon, Goran Zidar, Karla Doyle, and Monica Enderle Pierce.
If you're interested in A Hell Hound's fire, here is the cover and blurb:
Alex MacLaren figures he'll never find love again after his mate dies. As one of the rare Hell Hound werewolves, his chances are slim to none. And slim went home. When the local Morukai shaman calls on him to protect a lovely Irish werewolf and her young son from demons, he can't help but take the job.
Sarah Flanagan is desperate to save her son Liam from the deadly monster trailing them, but she's out of options and places to hide. She lost her mate the last time she encountered a demon, and with Liam depending on her, the stakes are far higher this time. After meeting Alex, she's not sure about the Hell Hound, but she’s no fool. He’s their best hope for survival... and hers for another chance at love.
Thank you all for stopping by and happy reading! :)
