Welcome to Sexy Snippets and Weekend Writing Warriors, where authors share 7-8 lines/sentences of a book or work in progress.
I’ve continuing on with the first love scene between Nicca and Evan in my very drafty draft of my WIP, Unnatural Allies. In the first snippet, Evan invites Nicca to share his bed, but he’s pretty forthright about his intentions–perhaps too much so. In the second snippet, he reveals his attraction to her. And in this last one, he clinches the deal.
His lips whispered across hers. He tasted of water and spice. “I’ve imagined kissing this mouth since you threatened to eat Wheezer with it.” The smile that took over Evan’s face promised fun and joy and pleasure. Evan would never leave a woman unsatisfied.
“Tell me you want this as much as I do.” As if he read her mind, he skated his fingers up her abdomen to gently brush one bullet-hard peak with his thumb.
She pressed his hand more tightly to her breast, wanting more forceful caresses. “Since I first saw you.” She tilted her head, offering her lips for a kiss.
Come back next week and I’ll continue with the scene.
Blurb in Progress (NB: This is my first attempt at adding humor in a blurb)
Violent fae encroachment on shifter land has heated up. With death tolls rising, the impossible became necessary – an alliance among predator and prey shifters.
Nicca Baron, lone wolf and wolf clan beta, finds herself under the command of Evan Grant, the rat alpha. Under different circumstances, he’d be dinner. Something her wolf never fails to remind her of. Evan is one hot, smart rat who proves damn good at what he does. Suddenly, being dinner takes on a very different meaning.
To rule the rats, you have to rule the pack. Evan Grant is a whiz at managing people and groups. Until he found himself leading a mission made up of every single large animal that thrived on rat flesh. And not the kind between his legs. The only bright light in the mission is Nicca. Her storm gray eyes miss nothing, her brilliant mind comprehends everything and her succulent curves are the perfect place for a rat to hide for days and nights.
In each others arms, Nicca and Evan discover love and acceptance. But a wolf cannot mate with a rat, no matter the strength of the human attraction.
Where this story begins (You can meet Nicca and Evan briefly in my current release)
On the night of the full moon, any male shifter can call the Trials to race against Talia Orion, alpha of the united wolf-eagle clans. Clan law requires Talia to marry the winner of the Trials, a grueling twenty-mile marathon through dangerous, rugged terrain. Talia, the product of an unhappy, political alliance masquerading as a marriage, trains obsessively to ensure she avoids her parents’ fate. Her newest vampire trainer, Hayden Mitchell, makes her powerful even as he knocks down her defenses, and finds his way into her heart. Hayden has loved Talia since the first moment he saw her. As the destined ruler of the vampire clan, he has another agenda to politically unite Talia’s clans with his own—what Talia fears most, and will never forgive him for.
