Hello everyone. I hope you had an enjoyable Independence Day, and if you have a freaked-out-by-fireworks dog like I do, I hope it was relatively peaceful and that all your furry friends made it through without too much trauma. My neighborhood was surprisingly quiet this year. I usually do a movie marathon while holding my dog’s paw, but I fell asleep early catching up on the last season of Castle. Have I mentioned how much I love Nathan Fillion? Anyway, it’s a lovely day for a blog hop, so don’t forget to check out all the amazing stories being spun over on the WWW website.
I’m continuing with my recently completed m/m erotic high fantasy fun in the forest magical romp with witches, threeves and hunky guys with swords.
To Catch A Threeve (Constable Axel Blackwood and his deputy, Drummond Alloway, are journeying by horseback through the deep forest)
Axel wasn’t surprised someone discovered his mission. The castle at Breckenride was as thick with gossiping, plotting knaves as any backwoods tavern, and despite the caution taken by Lady Lysette word must have leaked out. He’d warned her transporting the gem would be dangerous and a convoy might be better for the job than one constable and a hired sword, but she’d insisted she wanted to draw no attention to the removal of the gem from the castle.
Attention had been drawn, and Axel had every intention of finding out who in the castle had set a thief after them. He’d take the sneak alive and whip the truth out of him.
The jingle of tack and a stream of curses alerted him to Drummond’s imminent arrival. He hadn’t yet told his deputy about their stalker. He didn’t want anything to alert the would-be thief that his presence was known.
This post is part of an ongoing blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Every Sunday, participating authors post eight sentences from their current work in progress.
