Another Wednesday and since ASSASSIN’S MOON released yesterday, I figured I’d cheat on #1lineWed this week. No WIP, but a new release. 😉 Today’s theme is all about **WONDER**
This scene takes place not long after Griff and Lennox…bump into each other. It’s pretty self-explanatory. 😉
“Uh huh. Well, that someone, who you said was a nun, set you up.”
“No way. She wouldn’t!”
“Tell me about her.” His focus was laser-sharp and centered only on the woman. Was she working for Veronica after all?
“There’s been some sort of mistake.” Len sank onto the parapet, her knees shaking enough now they wouldn’t support her. “I…no. Just no!” She glowered up at the man. “What were you doing there?”
“Walking down the street, Wonderland. You’re the one who bumped into me and who had three thugs following her.”
She snorted. “Pretty damn convenient, if you ask me.”
“Not asking, sweetheart. What’s your story? And you can start with your real name.”
“I told you my—”
“If you’re Alice from Wonderland, I’m the White Rabbit.”
Len did not want to trust this man but there was just something about him—something strong and warm and…safe. He made her feel safe, despite his size, his gruff voice, and narrow-eyed glares. When he touched her, she wanted to strip naked and roll around on the floor with him. Better yet, on a nice, soft bed. She did not just fall into lust and she didn’t do one-night stands. Ever. Never. But this guy, whoever he was? Yeah, she had visions of all sorts of down and dirty things she would enjoy doing with him, to him, or him doing to her. A full-body shiver racked her and it had nothing to do with the last of the adrenaline surge or being chilled. It did have everything to do with the sexy man standing over her.
Do you have any wonderful words to share with us today?
