Surfacing from my edits/rewrite/deadlines cave to post up a little something of my own today. As always, I'm up to my eyeballs in drowning with deadlines swirling all over me. I need a break - so anyone wants to join me for some Six Sentence Sunday excerpts?
And we're still in Vegas. Remember - super-spy Rayne got back together with the love of her life, her childhood best friend, Ash Gilfoy. And would you believe it? They even got married!
Except for the tiny detail that the groom has no clue he's tied the knot... Rayne is dreading what'll happen when Ash realizes this. Last week, she was quaking on her boots.
Today, we finally get to see what Ash is going through. We switch to his POV from here on. Read for his reaction...
Ash blinked; he had to be dreaming, except that the metal band on his finger felt all too real—heavy, smooth, warm, and tight. He glanced at the ring, then at Rayne—it took two people to get married, and she was the other half of the equation...he didn't need to see the glinting piece of gold on her ring finger to put two and two together.
Except that here, two and two equalled a whole muck up of twisted shit. They were married—since when, how, and worse, had they consummated the union? He snorted softly; Who am I kidding? Of course, they'd consummated their wedding, because the only thing between him and Rayne was sex, the strings of their friendship pale, sketchy ghosts grappling for a hold where there was none to be grasped....'
Poor man, innit? But Rayne loves him... and love makes everything better, doesn't it? What will this marriage be like? Do these two even stand a chance? Grab a copy of Before The Morning (Corpus Brides: Book Two) and find out.
Don't forget to check some lovely peeps and their excerpts on the official SSS list - Jessica E. Subject, Gem Sivad, JM Blackman, Kate Warren, Monica Enderle Pierce, Jess Schira, Veronica Scott, Siobhan Muir, & Sue Ann Bowling - among many others!
Hope ye all are enjoying a lovely weekend! It's spring-easing-into-summer here, aka allergy season. So I'm not out of the woods yet... *grin*
From Mauritius with love,
