Snippet Sunday - A Hell Hound's Fire - Perfect Timing


Welcome to the Snippet Sunday! Thank you so much for visiting. 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 my paranormal romance AVAILABLE NOW entitled A Hell Hound's Fire. Best part? It's free, both on Smashwords and All Romance Ebooks! :D In this snippet, Sarah has gone upstairs to tuck in her son and Alex remembered the bed had no sheets. He came to help make the bed and stopped to listen to her read to Liam. However his mind is going elsewhere. This is in Alex's POV.

He had to get his head back in the game and focus on the threat, not on the luscious female in the next room. She’d experienced enough difficulty already. The last thing she needed was some horny male backing her against the wall and kissing the hell out of her.

The idea made his cock swell.

Shit, get downstairs before she sees you, fool.

Alex lurched off the wall and shoved the sheets back in the closet. Then he bolted for the stairs, damn near tripping on the way down.

Sarah’s voice floated after him, “Your mountain needs moving, so get on your way.”

I’m going, I’m going.

Timing is everything, yes? ;) There are several great authors on the Weekend Writing Warrior list and in the Snippet Sunday Facebook group. A few of my favorites are Sarah Ballance, Charmaine Gordon, Goran Zidar, Karla Doyle, and A.S. Fenichel.

If you're interested in A Hell Hound's fire, here is the cover and blurb:

Love can be found in the most unlikely places, even the heart of a Hell Hound.

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.

You can also find this on Amazon, but it's not free. If you'd like to help me get them to price match, please go to the Amazon page and click on the like "tell us about a lower price." Just put in the All Romance Ebooks URL and hopefully they will get the hint soon.
Thank you all for stopping by and happy reading! :)


  1. Nice sexual tension in this one, Siobhan! Great snippet and good luck with the free read campaign!

  2. LOL, this snippet makes him sound about as graceful as I am. Great post, Siobhan, I can't wait to read this story all the way through.

  3. Your mountain needs moving

    Is that what the kids are calling it now? XD

    Great snippet!

  4. Ah nothing brings out a werewolf's protective side like a damsel in distress with a child. Nice show of conflict for the poor guy!

  5. Nice sexual tension. Love his clumsiness.
    Don't get the "mountain needs moving" reference.
    Great snippet.

    1. Sarah is reading to her son from a kiddie book and Alex always hears a few lines. There's more of it at the beginning of the story.

  6. Enjoyed the excerpt, wondering what mountain needs moving...I really like Alex!

  7. I love how he overheard the snippet of book and reinterpreted it for himself. A very "human" moment.

  8. Great tension here. Love is stumbling out of the room. :) lol

  9. Love his inner thoughts - and his reactions too.

  10. Love his inner dialogue at the end, and the tension in this is wonderfully thick. Another great snippet!

  11. I love that you're giving us a full picture here. His thoughts, which are so entertaining, and a glimpse of what's happening around him. It feels so real.

  12. Maybe that's exactly what she needs. I do respect him for reining himself in though:)

  13. LOL! Perfect timing indeed! I loved this snippet! :)

  14. The dialogue in this just crackles. Love it!

  15. Great man-speak here, Siobhan. Nice job!

  16. Great inner dialogue and conflict. Maybe he needs to let her decide what she needs? ;-)

  17. so the mountain needs moving. Hmm. nice 8.

  18. Bwahahaha...I'll bet his mountain needs moving. Cute snippet that made me smile.

  19. I love this story, Siobhan! :-) Excellent snippet.

    Heading to Amazon now. Let's get that price match. :-)

  20. I know it's meant to be a line from a story she's reading to her son but mentioning a mountain immediately after a penis reference can't help but make me link the two. :-)
