#8Sunday #SnippetSunday: Mar 16, 2014




weekend_writing_warriorsveteransbadge_4Each week authors from all over and writing in all genres bring you snippets from their work.  It could be a work in progress or a completed piece.  It could be published or not. But it’s only 8 sentences.

Today, we are back with A Legacy of Lies, one of my many works in progress. The one you’re all familiar with.

Jacob (the hero), is trying to find his missing sister Julia, and her best friend Elissa (the heroine), is determined to help him.  Only, Jacob has the hots for Elissa and he’s trying, very desperately, not to.  You can see last week’s snippet here. The following snippet carries on from last week. They had arrived at an abandoned motel hoping to find Julia, but she was gone by the time they got there. They did find a clue though, and now Jacob’s intent on going after her.


Jacob brushed past Elissa on his way out the door, the fruity fragrance of her shampoo teasing his sensitive nostrils and hardening his cock, sending a tingling sensation racing over his skin—but he shoved his lust down deep—disgusted with himself that it would rear its head right now. He heard her scurrying behind to keep up.

Outside, Tagg leaned against his truck, cell phone in one hand, a cigarette in the other, and by the sounds of it playing a game. He looked up as Jacob approached—his tone light, his eyes anything but.

“Morgan texted me the new coordinates. They’re definitely heading into Mexico.”

Fuck! The situation just became a hell of lot more difficult.


You can read all of my past snippets here:  ALL my snippets.

Please jump back to the main site for  Weekend Writing Warriors and visit  Snippet Sunday on Facebook to see the many other authors bringing you a glance into their worlds for this week.

I’m looking forward to catching up with everybody.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    Damn, he will never find her again if they cross the border.

    this is a very fast moving snippet, keeps the tension up. Very effective.

    You’ve given me things to ponder. I’m with Sarah, who is Tagg? Obviously a friend, not foe…

    Intriguing snippet, Anne. Very genuine–his emotions and his reaction. Good deep third.

  5. EE Giorgi

    love this snippet, I particularly like the tension you built with just these few words: “his tone light, his eyes anything but.” Great work!

    Tense situation, great imagery I could ‘see’ it all!

    Well of course things got more difficult. That damn Murphy’s Law will rear its head every single time!! Love how he’s affected by her, even when he doesn’t want to be. Can’t wait to see what happens when they finally give in.

  12. Frank Fisher

    Mexico? Yep, the situation just got more difficult indeed. Sounds like an engaging read. Great snippet!

    Timing is everything! :D

    Tagg intrigues me, too—is he a whatever-Jacob-is? And I must have missed a snippet or an explanation—when did he show up?
