Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday. Thanks for stopping by. Today’s six are from my debut Fires of Justice releasing in-OMG-3 days on October 17 from Ellora’s Cave . The excerpt below follows the snippets I’ve been sharing over the last few weeks. Finally, Calista gets a rise out of Cullen, who starts the conversation below.
“I’m under orders, as are you.”
“Hey, grumpy, do I strike you as a woman who takes orders?” She scanned him up and down, her eyes lingering on some of his juicier parts. “Although with the right incentive, I might consider it, say, handcuffs? Do marked ones use toys or is it straight-up, standard fare?”
His bottom lip twitched, a hint of a curl teased the edges despite his best efforts to suppress it.
I’d love to know what you think. And take a hop around the web and visit the other fabulous writers on Six Sentence Sunday.
I’d also invite you to join me on the blog tour starting October 18. Details coming in my next post. Swag, great conversations, lots of fun. Hope to see you.
Always read the fine print when swearing an eternal oath to gods and guardians…
Beholden by the sacred vows of her coven, fire witch Calista Reid agrees to temporarily mate with shifter Cullen McMahan to fulfill a mission assigned by the guardians. When tall, dark and damaged arrives on her doorstep, generating enough heat to scorch a fire witch, Calista finds herself drawn to his battle-hardened body and broken soul. His pain speaks to her own deep-rooted isolation and the intensity of his hunger slakes her passion like no other.
Cullen, scarred by a past that left him an indentured soldier to the guardians, resents yet another hump-on-command assignment…until he encounters the compassionate, fearless, incendiary redhead who detonates his body and reawakens the emotions sacrifice and loss had suppressed. But Cullen harbors a terrible secret—one that reaches back into Calista’s troubled childhood and threatens the foundation of their growing bond.
