Wednesday Words: Now

MS-Secrets-Lies bannerChanging things up a bit because MOONSTRUCK: LIES released yesterday so I’m not giving y’all new words from a WIP but words from the new book. Almost the same, right? 😉 This is a snippet that always makes me laugh and really describes the relationship between Jacey and Nate. Enjoy! (And buy the book if you haven’t already! Links at the bottom…)

****
Her face scrunched up as she glowered at him. Part of him liked putting her off balance, but this was too serious a discussion to get distracted. She poked a finger into his bare chest and he growled.

“What? You gonna bite me?”

Oh, he and his wolf liked that idea. Liked it a lot. He shook the thought out of his head. It was his turn to glower. “They’re dangerous, Jacey.”

“Not to me.”

He opened his mouth then snapped it shut. She was utterly certain of that, he had no doubt.

She ignored him and continued her argument. “Now you listen to me, Nathaniel Connor, and you listen to me good. Those men may technically be human but they’re…more. Not quite Wolves, but not just human either. You’re their Alpha. They live or breathe by your command. And I’m yours. They know that. Know right down in their very DNA. They’d protect me. Probably die for me, as they would for you, but hurt? No way on God’s green earth. Not intentionally.”

She stepped around him, jerking the cart after her. One of the wheels ran over his foot but he ignored the quick nip of pain. He stared daggers into her back but she simply waved him off with a one-fingered salute. His. She was his in a way he was just beginning to understand. And to appreciate.

  1. SQUEE! I love these characters so much!

    Now? Well, here’s a snippet from my new release, too. That’s about as now as I can get this morning.

    “Ready to be djinn again?” I said as I arrived with Michael in tow. The big white dog lifted his head.
    “You have no idea how ready I am,” he said and I thanked the gods my wish to translate dog to human was still in place.
    “Great. Prepare to walk like a man.”
    The three of us already on two legs made a triangle around the dog, clasping each other’s hands and whistling the Frankie Valli song in three part harmony. My power coursed through me, merging with Basil’s and Michael’s. As soon as our triad pulsed, we let the wish go. All our energy consumed Major, turning him into the biggest light bulb ever. Within moments, I couldn’t look directly at him.
    I wasn’t sure which one of us let go first. I found myself sitting on the floor. Mena’s transformation into a dog had drained me, but this was like I’d run the Boston Marathon, forwards and backwards.
    As I slid into unconsciousness, a big, wet tongue slid across my cheek. Nothing quite like doggy kisses to wake a gal up.
    Doggy kisses? Oh crap.
