Greetings fellow warriors, writers and readers. I’m especially appreciative of this group and groups like it this week. I’ve started a new job that’s totally upended my writing schedule and my production level has dropped off alarmingly. However, knowing that I’m participating in this blog brings me back to the manuscript, the work and the stories in a way that I wouldn’t manage if left on my own. I’d much rather veg on the couch these days and feel sorry for myself. So thanks for all the great support!
This week I’m continuing with my m/m erotic high fantasy. The blurb is at the bottom of this post.
To Catch a Threeve (Constable Axel Blackwood and his Deputy, Drummond Alloway, are riding through the wild woods between the lands of Lacknor and Thorburn, on a secret mission for Lady Lacknor)
Drummond rounded the bend, legs slapping his horse’s side. Even in the faint starlight, Axel could tell his deputy’s cheeks flamed with exertion. The man was shaped like a standing stone and sported a thick blond beard – the physical opposite of Axel. Though wide-shouldered, Axel was slim and tall rather than blunt and wide, and dark-complexioned whereas Drummond was fair. A fine pair they made and were recognized the land over as king’s men, not to be fooled with.
“Dammit, Blackwood, how do you expect me to guard your back when you take off at a dead gallop without warning?”
“Wasn’t me, it was Sapphire. He’s had about all he can take lollygagging along at your mare’s pace.”
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. Then we hop to our fellow warriors’ blogs and check out all the fabulous fiction that’s happening! I heartily invite you to participate as a reader, writer, or both. It’s a great way to discover your next favorite book. Click here or copy & paste this address: http://www.wewriwa.com
Unofficial Blurb for To Catch a Threeve
To Catch a Threeve is an m/m erotic fantasy that takes place in the medieval land of Lacknor. Constable Axel Blackwood catches a thief and is astounded to see that he closely resembles the love he lost seven years ago in an attack by the evil woodland folk known as threeves. He quickly realizes he’s fallen prey to dark magic, but can’t help becoming infatuated with his prisoner and is overwhelmed with the hope that he can at last bring his lost lover home. Bryn Darrow, the half-threeve, half human orphan sent to trick Axel and rob him of much more than a simple gem finds himself equally as fascinated with his handsome human captor and the lure of some place to call home, but believes that the constable is in love with a dangerous illusion.
