Six Sentence Sunday - Walking The Edge: Snippet #4
It's Sunday again, and I'm flying high today. Why? Well, Walking The Edge (Corpus Brides: Book One) was released on June 30! Not only that, but the first review has already come through, and the book has been described as "...the explosive debut novel of the Corpus Brides series by Zee Monodee. Shrouded in mystery and half-truths until its climactic ending, Walking the Edge is a romantic suspense novel that rightfully earns its position as one of the best romantic suspense novels to line my e-book shelves this year. ..."
I've been sharing quips from the start of the book so far with you - today I'm moving to a different segment of the book. Remember - Amelia has amnesia, and she is 'married' to creepy Peter who plies her with mind-altering drugs.
But what Peter doesn't know is that those drugs allow Amelia to dream, and fragments of her forgotten past come to the forefront of her mind during the forced slumber.
This excerpt is taken from one of those dreams. Amelia sees herself waking up next to a handsome, sandy blond and tanned man in a room on the Mediterranean coast. She knows he's spent the whole night with her, again. Desire is building inside her, but one look at his serious face sobers her. (Dialogue edited for the purpose of this post)
'... "What?" she gently asked, afraid to speak lest he should disappear without answering.
"We can't keep going on."
His soft words pierced her heart - "No, don't say that."
"You know we never expected it to come this far between us, Mi—"
She placed a finger on his lips, shushing him - "No, don't say my name; Don't taint our moment."
"When I'm with you," she said, "I'm not her; Do you understand that?" ...'
So, Amelia sees this man in a dream... Is he a memory, or a figment of her imagination?
You can get your copy of Walking The Edge here - at the bargain price of $1.99! It's a steal! :) And if you want to read Chapter 1, click here.
