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 very much 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 my last visit, Jacob and Elissa had entered the motel room they’re sharing and commented on the fact there’s only one bed. Elissa has just stepped into the bathroom to take a shower. We are in Jacob’s POV .
He let his eyes drift closed, as the lock on the bathroom door clicked into place. Instantly, he was bombarded with images of Elissa naked in the shower, hot water sluicing over perfect body. Not that he knew what she looked like naked, but he could guess—he happened to have a great imagination. And it would be a welcomed change to use it for picturing her, rather than what he’d like to do to his father when he found the man.
The room seemed to shudder as the shower kicked on and the pipes groaned behind the walls. Jacob rolled his head on his shoulders, his neck snapping and popping with each back and forth movement. He had to get Elissa out of his head and focus on his sister. She might think she was old enough, tough enough to take care of herself, but she had to be terrified.
