#sixsunday Before The Morning #22: What is she up to...?

Hey beautiful people!

Absolutely knackered this weekend, especially because I've been into the writing cave for the whole week. Got deadlines ready to whoop me into shape the minute I falter... but I need a break. Join me in enjoying some fantastic snippets from Six Sentence Sunday?

Back in Vegas, in the 'bedroom' scene between Rayne and Ash. In case you're only now picking up six from this story, Rayne is actually a spy and assassin who's contemplating retirement... something that would imply being with the man she's always loved, Ash. Except for the tiny detail that Ash, a former cop turned ambulance worker, has no clue what Rayne has been up to for the past seventeen years. He thinks she's a humanitarian worker who's been involved in conflict-heavy regions like Africa and South America.

Rayne is having second thoughts about her 'plan' now... These six follow right after last week's excerpt.


'...
Ash turned toward her, and she gulped; he looked at her as if he could see into her soul. She prayed he never managed to do that, because no one should see the primeval darkness that blanketed her psyche—she wasn't a good person, and what she was about to do would cement that even further.
Ash could never know.
"I have to go out," she said. The sooner she accomplished her goal, the better. Only then would she be able to relax and let her life unfold.
...'


What is this woman up to, really? Curious? Then grab a copy of Before The Morning (Corpus Brides: Book Two) and find out!

Don't forget to check some awesome peeps on the official SSS list - Jessica Subject, Cara Bristol, Siobhan Muir, Kinberley K. Comeau, Sue Ann Bowling, Sara Walter Ellwood, Susanna Fraser - among many others!

Hope you're having a lovely Sunday!

From Mauritius with love,

Zee

I'm reading this now. Love the idea of a female assassin and your detail in the book. You surprised me when Rayne goes to Ash and he thought she was Irina. I so did not expect that!

Jessica Subject said...

So sad that she has to live this double life when all she really wants is to be with Ash. Great six as always! :)
