Once again, a cold, dark, and dismal Sunday morning here. When on earth is spring gonna come in, eh? When, when, when? Sorry for that little outburst - I've been with a sick kid on hand 24/7 since last Wednesday, so my brain is absolutely fried right now (and I think I've regressed to kid brain, too... Gaaahhhh). Anyhow *pulls on adult mindset, takes a deep breath...* it's Sunday, and we all know what that means - Six Sentence Sunday.
Still with Ash, former good cop turned bad boy ambulance worker turned knight in shining armour, and Rayne, former spy & assassin turned good girl next door. Are these two dancing around each other? Both hide secrets; both are subtly lying to the other;... and both are about to step into a monumental mess.
They're in Vegas, and we know that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? We pick up from where we left last week - in the stupendously gorgeous house they're staying at, Rayne has found Ash in the bedroom browsing the sports channels on the TV. Somehow, looking at Ash kinda pinches the heart she didn't know she still had...
A twinge of unease slithered inside her chest; should she, or shouldn't she? She bit her lip—she didn't want to take risks any longer, and she wanted—needed—stability and predictability. True, there would be some hurdles to jump, but everything would be worth it...won't it?
She felt a cold, ghostly hand reach into her chest and squeeze tightly as she watched him, his bare feet, more precisely, because ditching shoes meant familiarity, trust, being comfortable. He didn't know he should never feel comfortable around her, because too often, Kali and her manipulations took over; Rayne had no control over herself, and he'd end up getting hurt.
If she had a heart—one in good, working order—she would let him go....'
Will she, or won't she, let Ash get away unscathed? Find out when you grab your copy of Before The Morning (Corpus Brides: Book Two).
