Hello everyone, and welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors! Today I’m off to the coast to bask in the wet and wild storm that’s a brewin’ off in the Pacific. I’m hoping to get some hopping in while huddled in a cozy hotel room, but I might not be able to complete my rounds until tomorrow. I won’t miss any of your great excerpts if I can help it.
I’m continuing with To Catch a Threeve until the Sunday before release day (October 28). Last week Axel finally got a look at the thief and much to his shock, recognized him.
“Is it really you?” Axel released the man’s wrists and pulled him up to a sitting position. Their faces were inches apart. Every bit of him looked like Liam, the boy Axel loved. And yet something was off.
“Aye, it’s me, but are you you?” The man’s look was wary and hopeful at the same time. Leaves and mud stuck to his face on one side.
This post is part of an ongoing blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Every Sunday, participating authors post eight sentences from a published work or perhaps 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
Official Blurb for To Catch a Threeve ~ Release date October 28th ~
Axel Blackwood catches a thief and is astounded to see that he closely resembles Liam Alloway, the love he lost seven years ago in an attack by the evil woodland folk known as threeves. Axel suspects he’s fallen prey to dark magic, but can’t help becoming infatuated with his prisoner. He’s overwhelmed with the hope that he can at last bring his lost lover home, despite everything that warns him it’s all a diabolical trick.
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 someplace to call home, but he knows deep down that the constable is in love with a dangerous illusion. When he’s commanded by the threeves to murder Axel and steal a witch’s powerful grimoire, he’s forced to decide between the only family he’s ever known and the one person who might rescue him from a life of isolation and pain.
Will Axel and Bryn be forced into a deadly confrontation before they can discover the truth?
