Snippet Sunday

In this excerpt from Blue 52, my heroine runs to my hero after a savage attack.


“I came to tell you…” Kathryn fell silent as a spasm of shivering seized her. She tasted blood and realized she had bitten her tongue because her teeth wouldn’t quit chattering.

Hank fractionally raised her chin to look at the cut on her neck. She tried to stop trembling, but she saw he had gotten blood on his hand when he raised her chin. With a small cry, she wrapped her arms around him and squeezed hard. Hank picked her up and carried her to the living room. He sat down with her on his lap and cuddled her close.

Kathryn buried her face against his neck. With his arms around her, she felt safer. Hank would take care of her; she gave in to her fear and started to cry.

This book is so good! Doesn't matter which scene you post from, Elaine. it's good. Your writing is fluid--very easy to read, and this snippet is a fine example of that. :-)
