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. The snippets are from my Cloudburst novella, Cloudburst Ice Magic, a paranormal romance sequel to Christmas I.C.E. Magic in the Happy Holidays from the Crescent Moon Lodge Anthology. Cloudburst Ice Magic is out now. You can catch last week's snippet HERE and an exclusive excerpt HERE.
In this snippet, Zach and Cade Cliffrose have hiked up to the Mistweaver Tarn and have spoken with the guards. Zach finds out a lot more about Cade than he thought he knew.
Cade inclined his head and Zach followed him under the archway, his mind churning.
“You didn’t tell me you were from the San Francisco Peaks area.”
Cade winked. “You never asked outright and I did say my home range melts every summer.”
“I never would’ve guessed you were from there. Everyone I’ve met from the area seemed really full of themselves.”
“Yeah, that’s why I leave most of the time. Gotta go back every now and again to talk to family, though.” Cade shrugged. “Granddad likes to pretend he’s a god or some shit like that. Drives me up the crags.”
Good to know the clan has a history. ;) There are several great authors on the Weekend Writing Warrior list and in the Snippet Sunday Facebook group. A few of my favorites are Charley Descoteaux, SJ Maylee, Gem Sivad, Goran Zidar, Veronica Scott, and Karla Doyle.
If you're interested in more from Cloudburst Ice Magic, here's the blurb:
Avalanches may bring down more than snow…
Working for the Search and Rescue team at the Cloudburst Resort in Colorado, Lily Sinclair figures she’ll do all the rescuing from now on. When hikers are caught in a spring blizzard, Lily and her partner head into the storm. Cut off from communication and facing deadly conditions, Lily fears she’ll never see her Ice Demon lover before death claims them.
Zach Snow encouraged Lily move to Cloudburst to grow and learn, but missed her every day of their months apart. His plans of moving to Colorado get pushed up when he receives her text explaining her situation, and saying goodbye. He must negotiate with the local Ice Demon clan to work in their territory to rescue Lily and the hikers before the Spring Fling blizzard kills them. But he’s running out of time.
Between the amorous hiker hitting on Zach, Lily’s self-doubts, and an avalanche bearing down on them, Zach and Lily must rediscover the love they first kindled in a Christmas ice cave, and create their own Cloudburst ice magic.
Cloudburst Ice Magic is available at Amazon, All Romance, and Smashwords.
