Writing: Guild Hunter #3

Writing away.

And oh look, what's this? A little sneak peak to make you all crazy. *g* Remember, this is from a work literally in progress, so totally not final.
________

She followed Raphael down as he landed in the yard, the light from the stained glass turning his wings into a kaleidoscope of wild blue, crystalline green and ruby red. You could’ve landed on one of the balconies, she said, too focused on ensuring a good landing to speak the words aloud.

Raphael didn’t disagree, waiting until she was on the ground beside him to say, “I could have.” Reaching out as she folded away her wings, he gripped her gently at the curve where her neck flowed into her shoulder, his fingers pressing into the sensitive inner seam of her right wing. “But then your lips would not have been so very close to mine.”

Her toes curled as he tugged her forward, pleasure blooming in her stomach. “Not here,” she murmured, voice husky. “I don’t want to shock Jeeves.”

I can't tell you how happy I am that you're continuing Elena and Raphael's adventures. Please never ever stop.

And if possible, write faster. XD I've devoured the two books and am salivating for more.
