Don’t forget the Twelve Brides of Christmas Facebook Party tonight. I’ll be hosting from 7:00 to 7:30 EST. That’s 6:30 for us normal peeps in the central time zone. 😉 Stop by and say hi. There’s a Kindle Fire up for grabs plus prizes from all the authors. Also, the 12 Brides books are supposed to be on sale for 99¢ each. That’s a bargain! Go grab them. The stories cover every Wild Rose imprint and romance subgenre so there’s something for everyone! 😀
It’s Wednesday. Time for words. Over on Kiss of Death’s #1lineWed twitter feed, the theme is Earth, Wind, and Fire. So many possibilities! But…since I’m editing MOON SHOT, here’s some snippets from it–and I’m all about the fire today.
Here’s the opening salvo–quite literally. 😆 Followed by other bits and pieces, all about the fire. 😉
Blinding. Phosphorescent. Deadly.
Followed immediately by the whistling whoosh of a mortar round. The team’s Zodiac, pulled up on the beach, disintegrated in a flash-bang and a shower of sand.
The seven members of SEAL Team Atlantis were sprinting toward the ocean before the explosion rocked the beach, creating a blast hot enough to fuse sand into glass, loud enough to deafen the Tangos on their tail, and bright enough to give them cover.
Rain fell in silent sheets and low, scudding clouds wreathed the mountains, making the late autumn foliage look like it was on fire. Dark shadows gathered in the valleys spread out across the Cumberland mountain range as Hannah stared out the wide window. Seemed shadows followed them everywhere, no matter what any of them did.
“Official report says high rate of speed and fog contributed to the accident. Lead car went over the cliff and the rest followed. Lucky thing they landed in a big ol’ rock slide. Kaboom. Lots of fire but none of it touched the surrounding forest. Nothing worth recovering left of the cars, and very little left of the bodies.” ~DJ Collier-Fontaine
And finally, a little glimpse of what Mac feels for Hannah:
That was the invitation Mac wanted. His mouth seduced hers. Slow. Easy. Patient. Even though he wanted to take her hard, he didn’t. The needy fire burning inside him would consume Hannah. He didn’t want to extinguish those flames with something hot and quick. He wanted to fan them into scorching life.
Still hoping this will be out before Christmas! I’m working my little brain to the max. What about y’all? Any words from your WIPs or reading to share?
