You know how I was talking about the yummy hero in the novella I'm writing? Well, I did say I'd post up some kind of excerpt. So here's a sneak peek (some stuff may change in edits). But WARNING - don't read it if you have a low crazy-making threshhold. 'Cause it's short.
Why is it so short?
1. It's a novella so I can't give away too much.
2. I was trying to find a bit where you didn't hear his first name, because that's mentioned in Mine to Possess (only two more months till MtP releases!!) and I thought you guys might enjoy figuring out who he is.
3. It's fun to make everyone crazy ;)
So, if you'd still like to meet Mr. Scrumptious, here he is:
…he followed Annie the short distance to the sick bay. Looking over her shoulder, he saw the darkened interior. “He’s gone.”
She jumped. “You walk like a cat!”
“I am a cat, sweetheart.” He wanted to tease her again, so he let a low growl rumble up from his chest. “See?”
Streaks of vibrant color stained her cheeks. But she didn’t back down. “Are you planning to move?”
“No.” He drew in a deep breath, fighting the urge to nuzzle at her throat. “You smell good. Can I taste you?” It was a half-serious question. “Just a little?”
“Mr. Quinn!” She took a step around him and headed off.
But he’d already caught the lush bite of arousal in her scent. Satisfied, he followed, on his best behavior now. It wouldn’t do to scare Annie away.
Not when he planned to keep her.
So, anybody feeling crazy? (Nalini runs away very fast)
