Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Shadows and Contrasts

wewriwa

Welcome to another edition of Weekend Writing Warriors.  We’ve had a blessed bit of rain here in Oregon, which makes for a lovely cool Sunday morning to snuggle up with some fabulous snippets of fiction.  This week I’m continuing to share from my new release, Betwixt and Between, an m/m contemporary fantasy set in Seattle.  Our hapless hero Ian has encountered a magical being at the Pike Street Market. Although sensing the man is dangerous, Ian just can’t walk away.  This is a little bit after last week’s snippet.

Ian waited until the musician entered into a very complicated set of notes before lifting the camera and snapping off a rapid succession of shots. Good thing he’d put in the high-speed film, as the stairwell was full of shadows and contrasts. One beam of sunlight snuck in around a cement beam and lit the violin player like a spotlight. Ian held the viewfinder to his eye and zoomed in. He focused on the creature’s eyes, which suddenly bored straight into his soul.

Instantly, Ian lowered the camera, but the mental image of the jewel-chip eyes took on a life of their own. Like blue flames, they danced across his vision and lodged in his memory.

Shit. He’d been zapped with some kind of spell for sure.

My Sexy Saturday ~ A Wish Away

LynnSexySaturday_banner

Happy 100th, My Sexy Saturday! Thanks for letting me play along every week on this amazingly fun blog hop.  This week’s theme is We’re Sexy Hot and in honor of this special anniversary, I’ve decided to post something a little racier than I normally put on this blog. So be warned, or inticed, whichever suits your fancy.

This snippet is from Betwixt and Between, my new release from Loose Id.  A svarta, by the way, is a dark elf.

The elf grinned, lips slick with Ian’s precum. Ian rolled his head to the side to look at anything other than that achingly sexy smile, but he couldn’t bring himself to let go of the elf’s hair or even try to push him away. He was only a wish away from losing control and probably losing himself forever. If only he could come and get a moment’s relief.

As if sensing his thoughts, the svarta put his teeth on the tip of Ian’s cock and bit down slightly. It was enough to send Ian’s climax whimpering in retreat.

“Please—” Ian gasped, hating his weakness.

Blurb:

Obsessed with magical creatures since childhood, tabloid reporter Ian Evers never experiences satisfying proof that the magical realm actually exists until he falls into an entrapment spell set by a handsome but dangerous elf.  Barely escaping with his soul intact, Ian is able to undo the hex, but he can’t escape the very real infatuation he’s developed for the fierce elf.

Ezekiel Stormshadow is a svarta, a dark elf who serves the queen of the dark realm. The realm of darkness needs the power of light to survive, and while hunting the last few magical beings on earth, Ezekiel discovers Ian, a light elf who’s unaware of his true nature and ripe for the plucking.  Their brief encounter awakens a great hunger in Ezekiel, and he’s determined to feast on the light elf’s power and body before the queen intervenes and claims Ian for herself.

Driven apart by the ancient imbalance between the dark and light realms, an evil queen starved for power, and their fear of each other, Ian and Ezekiel are relentlessly drawn together even though their union might destroy them both.
