Here’s a little snippet–a scene that started out really angry as I first wrote it and then just sort of turned sad and resigned as I edited. I like the way it turned out and speaks volumes about Cord’s and Jolie’s relationship.
“What do you want to talk about, Cord?”
No hesitation on his part. OUR son. Those words seared her soul like the hot Oklahoma wind.
“I really want to be CJ’s dad. I want to spend time with him. Do things and get to know him. Make up for lost time, you know?”
Now he was tugging on her guilty conscience, so she said nothing but a noncommittal “Mmm.”
“Can we do this without getting the lawyers involved?”
Still she didn’t answer, marshalling her chaotic thoughts. She didn’t want to share CJ. She didn’t. Especially not with the Barrons. The Barrons… Okay, CYRUS Barron was the problem. That horrid old man was nothing but poison when it came to his own sons. She sighed inwardly because Cord was right. CJ was his son, too.
“We have a son together, Jolie. Can’t we be friends at least?”
And speaking of new releases…
My good friend and sister street team to be sponsor, Siobhan Muir, just released OUTBACK DREAMS, the second part of her Ivory Road serial novel. THE IVORY ROAD is the first part of the serial. This series is a fun fantasy about an actress who shifts through dimensions. Her books are for sale HERE, as well as all the on-line booksellers. Go check them out.
In other writing news, I just can’t get the Wolves of the 69th and Hannah to mind their own business. Mac and Sean decided to drop in to visit the Nightriders. Things were going fine in church. No bloodshed. Yet. Despite Mac and the Russian having almost equal Alpha powers. Then Hannah decided to make an entrance. With a little C4 and loaded for bear. Here’s a little tease because I don’t want Hannah to shoot me. 😉
There was a soft boom and the doors shuddered. Seconds later, the doors were kicked in and a blond woman armed to the teeth stood there wreathed in smoke.
Before anybody could react, Mac yelled, “Hannah, what the fuck?”
Those are my teases. How ’bout the rest of you? Do you have a book you’re reading or writing you want to tease us with?
