Teaser of the week

So, on FaceBook I started posting a little snippet of my novel once a week, just two or three sentences.  I figured I'd do the same here, but longer.  This is from my prologue.

She wore a pale blue skirt that just touched the back of her knees. His eyes traced the moon pale curve of her bare calves, down to her black stilettos, then back up to the raven hair cascading halfway down her back in loose curls. And although she was turned away from him, he knew her face – the full lips, thin nose and most of all the deep green eyes. Green like a highland meadow or a piece of lustrous sea glass.

Only twenty feet separated them now. He moved forward with calm assuredness, closing the distance. Ten feet. He could smell her now, her soft fragrance of blossoming jasmine tingeing the air. Five feet. Reaching out a thin hand, his fingertips touched one perfect obsidian curl. Taking a deep, focused breath, he called on the dark magic that would end her existence, not only her body but her soul as well. His only regret was she had no idea what was about to hit her.


  1. Hi there! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I'm a follower of yours too now. Thank you too, for your kind words. It's been a tough couple of weeks, but I'm so happy with my decision. I feel good things coming my way. I hope for you too.

    I take it you write romance. That was a great teaser there. I grew up on romance. I write YA now, but romance has a special spot in my heart.

  2. Yes, it could be classified as paranormal romance, or urban fantasy. Not the traditional bodice rippers or anything, but I like a little sizzle in my books... thanks for checking it out!

  3. Wow. Awesome snippet. If I picked that up browsing through Borders, it'd end up in my basket for sure. Thanks for stopping by my blog.


I love talking with friends new and old! What's on your mind?
