Welcome to the Snippet Sunday on the Weird, the Wild, and the Wicked. Thank you so much for visiting. If you choose to comment today, I really appreciate it. Currently, the snippets are from a Work in Progress, the third story in the Cloudburst, Colorado series, and while they 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 the second chapter of The Cloudburst Coffee and Spa, a WIP in the Cloudburst Colorado series that deals with some of the darker kinks in love. Eighteen years have passed since Moira saw Aiden under the ponderosa, and now he's back in town, at least for a while. The snippet is unedited.
Aiden Westmorland parked his old Chevy pickup behind Mazie’s Five and Dime, and wondered for the millionth time what the hell he’d been thinking coming back to Cloudburst. Too stupid to live, I guess. He could give any excuse he wanted, but deep down the answer had been and always would be the same. Moira Callahan. She represented true north on his compass star, and he’d always be drawn back to her allure.
He’d hit the outskirts of town just ahead of the snowstorm bearing down on the little Rocky Mountain town. He didn’t believe this would be a quick one, despite the town’s name. The scent in the wind suggested the storm might last for quite a while. Mistress Cloudburst strikes again. The nickname made him grin and he turned off the truck before shoving his hands into gloves. The windows immediately fogged up as his warm breath hit the cooling glass, obscuring the view of the frozen parking lot.
So not so unaffected by his lady after all. ;) If you'd like to see a photo of the inspiration for Aiden, click HERE. There are several great authors on the Weekend Writing Warrior list and in the Snippet Sunday Facebook group. A few of my favorites are Anastasia Vitsky, SJ Maylee, Gem Sivad, Goran Zidar, Zee Monodee, and Karla Doyle.
Thanks so much for stopping by and happy reading. :)
