Monday Mini Excerpt

 

Hi All,

Thought I’d share a short excerpt from Blood Eternal, probably one of my most favorite scenes to imagine in this book. I feel it very sad, yet revealing of what exist between Luke and Savannah:

“Could you promise me you would never kill again?” Savannah’s voice broke on the last two

words, as if it cost everything to say them.

“No.” Luke would never make a promise he could not keep. Even now he made plans to

save her. If those plans involved killing Lorenzo, he would do so without a second thought.

“Why not?”

“Death is a part of me. You stated you could not change for anyone ever again. I cannot

change who I am, either. As much as I want to.” He brushed her chin with his fingers. “I could

not live with myself if anything were to happen to you, understand?”

“I wish I could,” she said.

His chest seized at her words. The road curved ahead, slithering like a snake through

verdant landscape. A heavy mist glowed silver beneath the moon’s light, its arms stretched and

wafting across the hills. The lonely scene spoke to him. Its rhythm would have matched his

heart’s beat, had he possessed one.

Hi All!

Sharing another snippet today from my current work in progress, Touch Eternal. Enjoy!

 

Michaela glanced down at her pale blue dress, torn and bloody in some places. An icy breeze moved through her and she gasped for breath. What the hell? She staggered as a woman’s form left her and moved toward Rafe. Her hips swayed with a grace Michaela knew she’d never possess. She glided rather than walked, a vision draped in white and gold. Tall, with golden hair and full lips. Her gown hugged her breasts and fell around her, forming a tail along the floor. She paused beside Rafe.

Rafe looked her over from head to toe, then met her gaze. “What’s the occasion?”

The woman smiled, her expression an unusual combination of seduction and innocence. “What if I told you I had dressed up for you?”

“I’d tell you, you were wasting your time.”

She pouted. “Lucius, we were good together. Don’t you remember?” She caressed his neck.

He caught her hand in his. “Don’t. You know better than to refer to me by that name. I left him behind long ago.”

 

That’s all for today, folks! Please feel free to leave a comment and share your own snippets as well.

Rafe laughed. The sound, rich and deep, moved over her like a caress. “Not x-ray vision. That would be interesting, although I believe only Superman has that particular curse or gift, depending on how you look at it. With you it would most certainly be a gift.”

He was flirting with her.

She crossed her arms over herself, unsure of how to react to his tone. He was an ancient vampire, not exactly the boy next door. “Are you going to turn around?”

“How do you know I’m not already turned around?”

 He didn’t sound like he was but she wasn’t completely sure. She reached out. Her fingers brushed over his nose, lips, neck and down his chest. Definitely not turned around, yet she couldn’t stop her exploration. Over his chest, along his ribs and down his stomach. Smooth and hard.

That’s all for today, folks! Please feel free to leave a comment and share your own snippets as well.
