So glad the weekend warmed up. We had lots of rainy days this week and after the brief bit of sun it felt like a set back. Hopefully the weather will hold and we’ll have plenty of heat this week. Today is wewriwa which means another snippet to share. Feel free to see what else is going on at www.wewriwa.com. I’m using Mating Urge again and skipped ahead. In honor of Arak’s Love going on sale, I chose a small scene with him in it. (barely) 🙂 Ellie is still in hot water and Aran is entrusting the Jutaks to watch over her temporarily.
The rest of Torkel’s men caught up to them and formed a semi-circle behind their leader. Aran snarled and took a half-step back with Ellie in his arms. One of the dark haired men with eyes of blue steel raised his palms up in surrender and moved back several feet.
Torkel glanced over his shoulder in surprise. “Arak?”
His man offered a rueful grin. “I’m part Argoran and he’s newly mated. I can smell their combined scent.”
Aran snarled again and the hand he clamped around Ellie’s middle became a band hard enough to cause her breath to catch. She gasped and the hold loosened immediately.

Exciting moment captured here. I’m not quite sure what’s going on but I’d like to find out.
He’s deliciously possessive here.
Glad you’re getting some some and heat- still cool here- summer jsut won’t show up.
Love how all she had to do was give a little gasp and he eased his grip – he’s attuned to her in more ways than one.
Interesting, the connection they share, the way messages get relayed in so many ways beyond the stereotypical five senses….
Thx Eden I try hard to work on the show versus tell practice
It “shows” 😀
I really enjoyed this piece
I agree with Eden. Just a gasp and he responds. Oh what a world!
I wish all men were that intuitive LOL
So Aran and Arak are two different people. And somehow the sense of smell enters into it. I’m not sure what’s going on, but you’ve got me curious.
Ed I think I was in the letter phase. LOL. So at the time A names were on my mind.
Nice tense little vignette! Can’t wait to read more of course!
Thank you Veronica 🙂
Love how tight his grip was and one gasp he loosened it, almost tender in that he didn’t want to hurt her.
The tension in this scene comes through loud and clear. And like the others, I like that he responded to her discomfort. Nicely done!
