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 upcoming release, Take the Reins, a fantasy adventure with romantic elements. This story is connected to my SEALs romantic suspense and should be out later this month.
In this snippet, the Senator Stanton's daughter Bethany is missing. Bethany is the younger sister to CPO Kevin Stanton of Beta Squad, my SEALs team. Senator Stanton has asked a special group in the Army to take on this mission and Major McMacken has basically told him he's not interested and walked out.
"We can't." Coolidge glanced around to be sure no one else overheard. Mack damn near rollled his eyes at the man's furtive motions. "Please come back into the office. I'll explain everything."
"No, Mr. Coolidge. That won't be necessary. We're done here."
"Please, Major, I beg you. Bethany isn't here... in this world."
Mack raised eyebrows. "We got multiple worlds now, Mr. Coolidge?"
Again, the smarmy man glanced around. "Come back to the office."
Despite Mack's better judgment, his curiosity prodded him to follow the wealthy weasel back to Stanton's office. Coolidge knocked and Stanton let him in, a satisfied smile curling his thin lips.
"I see you've come to your senses, Major."
"No, sir, I've come for explanations. If there really isn't one, then I'll be on my way. See, just like you, I have places to be and people to kill."
The senator gave him a flat look. "I've killed no one in my career, Major."
"That remains to be seen, Senator. You did say your daughter's missing and you won't give me the necessary information to find her. I'm thinkin' that's signing her death warrant."
Sounds like the senator is playin' fast and loose with his daughter's life. ;) There are several great authors on the Weekend Writer Warriors 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 Sarah Wesson.
Thanks for stopping by and happy reading. :)
