It’s time for Snippet Sunday. It’s May the Fourth, Star Wars Day, and also Free Comic Book day. Did you get your free comic books?
Today I’m showcasing COURTING THE DRAGON WIDOW and it’s now in Kindle Unlimited. You can borrow it as part of your subscription, but you can always buy it any time from Amazon. In snippet, we’re in Lissandra’s POV and she’s on the phone with Denarrion’s sister-in-law who’s made the decision they’re coming to dinner like it or not. Torri speaks first.
“Fortunately, you beat us to the punch, but we’re still coming for dinner. Tell him to be ready.”
Lissandra laughed. “Will do.”
“Did you want us to bring your things with us?”
“Yeah, that would be great.”
“Very good. We’ll be there around six.” Torriandra’s voice softened. “Have a good time with him. He’s a good guy, no matter what you might see or hear.”
“What will I see or hear, Torri?”
“Nothing that can’t be fixed with a little communication. See you tonight.”
Apprehension slid through Lissandra as the line went dead. She hung up the phone, puzzled over what sorts of things she’d see or hear about Denarrion. What hadn’t they all told her?
“Yeah, I think so…” She replaced the handset and crossed her arms over her chest. “Something Torri said caught me off-guard.”
“Oh yeah? What’d she say?” He rose from his seat and the wet t-shirt pulled against his chest, showing off hard sculpted muscles and a tiny ring through his left nipple.
Who knew a nipple ring could be so sexy?
“She said you’re a good guy, no matter what I might see or hear. What is she talking about?”
Denarrion sighed and ran his hands over his face. “I suspect she means the shit my father says about me. He hasn’t been thrilled with me or my life since I moved away from him.”
“So, he spreads rumors about you?”
Denarrion shook his head. “Not rumors, exactly, just casual disdain. He’s a well-respected member of the community, so if he mentions I’m not what he’d like me to be, the listeners run that through their own filters, and voila! Bad boy of Redfield.”
It might be a cute title, but it also might have far-reaching consequences. 😉 There are several great authors on the Weekend Writer Warriors list, the Snippet Sunday Facebook group, and the Rainbow Snippets Facebook group. A few of my favorites are, P.T. Wyant, Karen Michelle Nutt, Veronica Scott, Jessica Subject, Kathy Griffith Karysa Faire, and Iris Blobel.
Here’s the blurb for COURTING THE DRAGON WIDOW:
Everyone has demons, but Lissandra’s date might have it worse than most…
Lissandra Charforest is finally stepping back into the dating game after three decades of widowhood. Accepting a blind date, she travels to a small town in upstate New York to meet an eligible dragon bachelor. Too bad the guy seems determined to stand her up.
Denarrion Goldencoat wouldn’t have agreed to a blind date with the Widow from Colorado if his father hadn’t insisted. Happy being the perennial bachelor, he has no desire to settle down on one woman, much less one with kids already. Until he falls into the reservoir with her.
But everything’s not as it seems. Beneath the quaint façade of Redfield, darkness and decay lurks to ensnare the unwary. When Lissandra discovers she’s been lured to Redfield to kill a demon under the pretense of a courtship, she almost walks away. But the truth jeopardizes the life of her True Bonded mate, leaving her with one choice: Destroy the demon or die trying.
