Six Sentence Sunday - Walking The Edge: Snippet #3
For a while I thought I wouldn't be able to make it today - we've been without power since 8 AM today. Absolutely awful - stuck on a Sunday at home with no electricity!
But thank goodness I'm back in business.
So peeps, do you realise we're on the eve of Walking The Edge's release? Yup - tomorrow the book goes on sale at Noble Romance Publishing!
I'm totally stoked, and doubly so now to share another snippet with you. :) For the past 2 weeks, I've posted about Amelia, and the start of the book, where she feels as if someone was stalking her in Selfridges. You can catch there here and here. Why is she this way? Well, let's just say her life is not exactly a bed of roses, especially not with the man she's "married".
Curious? Well, let me make you meet him, make you see how Amelia feels whenever Peter comes around her. Amelia has run home from the department store, because she wants to get there before Peter comes home, before he will be around to force her to take the drugs that keep her in a haze. But she wasn't quick enough - he gets there before she has time to dump the pills down the sink.
"...Her breath hitched in her throat as she sensed more than heard his approach, his Italian loafers making no sound on the bedroom carpet, then on the polished floor tiles of the en-suite. The closer he got, the more she recoiled and cringed, dreading the feel of his cold fingers should they touch her.
It was the whisper of his breath that maliciously teased her skin, his head dipping down so his mouth would be level with her ear.
"Good girl," he said softly.
She heard the hint of mockery in his tone, a chilling reminder that he was the one who called the shots around the house. Gone was the distant, detached man who had been by her side at the hospital - in his place was a manipulating monster who took pleasure in making her jump out of her skin...."
