Each 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.
A Legacy of Lies, is my paranormal romantic suspense, and it is a wip. Jacob (the hero), is trying to find his missing sister Julia, and her best friend Elissa (the heroine) is determined to help him. My last snippet for this WIP can be read here.
During the last visit, Jacob, Elissa and Tagg were just settling in at a diner for some dinner. Tagg’s having fun teasing Jacob about Elissa. Jacob’s not too impressed. I’ve jumped ahead to after dinner, and at the motel where they are spending the night before heading back out to the search for Julia. Jacob and Elissa have been forced to share a room. We are in Jacob’s POV but starting with Elissa speaking.
“There’s only one bed.”
“Noticed that did you? I’ll warn you right now, I have no plans to sleep on the floor. So unless you’d like that honor, we’ll be cuddling up close and personal tonight.” This was so not what he needed. How the hell was he supposed to keep his hands off his mate when she lay right next to him, all soft, warm, and sleepy, and he could smell her unique scent, mixed in the floral shampoo she used?
“I’m sure we’ll manage; we’re both adults.”
Once again, he couldn’t control the growl that escaped, or the sudden stranglehold his pants seemed to have on his groin.
