Weekend Writing Warriors-#8sunday

   

It feels like forever but I’ve finally made my way back to the weekend writing warriors. Writers get together and give you a snippet in the form of 8 sentences for an upcoming release, current book or a WIP. Below find my 8 from my new release No Reason to Run. Shane’s walked in on Olivia crying. Not sure why, he feels compelled to soothe her.

“Easy, princess.” He murmured the words close to her ears in hopes of stopping her frantic struggles. At the sound of his voice, she hesitated and then her weight shifted. Her cries died down to sniffles but she allowed him to hold her, the child nestled between them. He bowed his head, keeping them near and smelled baby powder.

Baby-fucking-powder. Mitchell, you are off your game. Somehow, it didn’t matter
