Greetings and welcome to another edition of Weekend Writing Warriors. I might not be objective about this, but I think WWW is one of the funnest, most diverse fiction sharing hops around. I hope you take the opportunity to check out some seriously awesome writers by clicking on the linky-loo there and continuing the journey, eight sentences at a time.
Things are getting steamy here this week as I continue with snippets from To Catch a Threeve. Last week Constable Axel Blackwood was stunned when the thief he’d just nabbed turned out to be – maybe – the long lost love of his life, Liam Alloway.
Axel reached up to brush it away, to get a better look. When his hand touched the smooth cheek, the man grabbed Axel’s shirt and dragged him forward into a rough kiss.
For the blink of an eye, Axel’s brain resisted. Liam was dead. This was a thief in the night, not his lost love. Then his body responded to the press of moist lips to his, and logic vanished quicker than fog in sunlight.
And it was like a sunrise, the heat that surged through his body and a delectable, crazy joy that teased every corner of his being. Liam!
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?
