#8Sunday

Hello weekend writing warriors. I went back and forth on what to snip today and then decided to use something from my upcoming release Arak’s Love. Do enjoy and feel free to follow along for other snippets from participating authors at www.wewriwa.com

Arak huffed out a breath and slouched against the half-destroyed wall to ease some of the pressure on his leg. “Out of curiosity, on a scale of one to ten…exactly how powerful are you?”

Kyele slanted him an annoyed glance. “Nine.”

Arak grinned and swiped at a stream of blood running from his damaged nose. The blue liquid stained his fingers. “Somehow I thought you’d say ten.”

Kyele grunted. “If I ramped up to a ten, cat, it means you need to get far, far away from me.”

Well never let it be said the scary fuck wasn’t honest.

Half-Argoran shifter, Arak O’tir knew good people existed. He worked with some of them. But as a deadly Jutak warrior, his work often took him into the less savory elements of society. So much so, he shielded his heart from those he rescued. That was, until one particular mission leaves him longing for a specific female. Someone who made him tremble even if she wasn’t from his world.

Sylvia Forrester never expected her quest for a husband would lead her into danger. Nor could she have ever foreseen that her search would find her captured by aliens and added to a list of potential sex-slaves to be sold for a high profit. While her captors should have broken her, destroying any hope she’d had of a life happily-ever-after, Sylvia’s savior has her wondering if her earlier dreams could still come true.

But Arak and Sylvia soon discover love and passion has its own price.

    I have no idea who Kyele is, but I’m definitely interested in finding out more. Fun snippet. It’s always good to see the hero challenged.

    I really like this, Michelle. It’s interesting. I’m not a fan of gratuitous profanity in writing. But this snippet perfectly shows when profanity works–when it makes an aspect of the story stronger. The voice you’ve given the narrator in this piece is honest and raw. Well done!

    Enjoyed the excerpt, thought having Kyele hold back a bit on his own abilities makes it all the more interesting.

    Being honest means you don’t have to be embarrassed about being second best… because you know better.
