It’s time for Snippet Sunday. It’s Easter weekend for those who celebrate and I have a new book out. COURTING THE DRAGON WIDOW is book 6 in the Cloudburst Colorado series and you can find it HERE.
But today I’m showcasing an unedited F/F Fantasy Romance that will be included, eventually, in the Rifts Series. Indira is the head wranglers of the brightmares. The people in this world resemble the people from Avatar, though mine are more lavender and purple rather than blue. And they have five digits on their hands and feet. Diana is the new Keeper of the Key, the leader or Chief of their people. She’s also one of the Twelve Dancing Princesses from our mythology. We’re in Indira’s POV.
Indira sighed and turned to make her way toward the Wranglers’ Den to gather her things when someone collided with her. She yelped and rolled, hitting the ground on her shoulder hard enough to dislocate the joint.
“Oh my glory! I’m so sorry. Are you okay? Are you hurt? I’m really sorry.”
The deep, sultry voice made Indy focus away from the pain screaming through her shoulder to look at the person who’d run into her. Sweet Goddess, it’s the new Keeper. Her mouth dried out faster than the Clouded Desert and excitement built in the pit of her stomach at her nearness.
“Oh, glory, I didn’t realize how fast I was going. I’m a lot stronger here than where I’m from.” The Keeper scrambled to her knees and reached out for Indy. “Oh dear, you really are hurt, aren’t you? I’m very sorry.”
Indy couldn’t find the words to say anything as the pain came rushing back. All she could manage was a deep groan. Say something. Anything. Apologize for being in her way.
But the words didn’t come. Unfortunately, the tears did, flooding down her cheeks as the agony from her shoulder tore through her.
“Oh no. Don’t cry. Glory, I really screwed up. Um.” The Keeper cast around for something, her expression folding into intense thought. “Here, let me see if I can help. Lean into me.”
She sat back on the ground and spread her legs, beckoning to Indy. “Come on. Put your back against my chest and let me see if I can make it right.”
“No, no…it’s all right…I’ll be fine.” The words came out in staccato bursts between the pulses of pain.
“Horseshit. I bet you’re damn near nauseous from pain. Come on, don’t pussyfoot around. Let’s fix this.”
The Keeper’s not your average noble. 😉 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.
Just a little hint of what all I’m thinking in terms of these people and the brightmares. Both of these images are used for inspiration only. Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!

That was one heck of a first meeting. Ouch! lol
At least the Keeper packs a pretty good punch. 😀 Thanks for commenting, Karen.
The Keeper seems to be something of a klutz maybe? Interesting way for the two characters to meet! Enjoyed the excerpt…
She’s definitely not used to her new world and how strong she is there. She has more than human strength. Thanks for commenting, Veronica.
Not as confident as someone with a sultry voice often is portrayed as being…intriguing!
She’s not used to her new world and she’s still learning her new abilities. Thanks for commenting, K.S. 🙂
