Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors

Rest Thy Head releases 9/23 from Astraea Press.


 Isn't my new cover beautiful? The cover artist did a super job depicting Rest Thy Head, and she also added the ghost for me. Do you see it? My excerpt today is of course from Rest Thy Head. Remember last week when my heroine left her boyfriend at the altar after he cheated on her? Well, we're skipping a lot because today I just felt like sharing something else. Here goes. Peyton is speaking to Jake.

She moved closer to him and laid her head on his shoulder.
“Touching you feels like coming home to a house filled with love
after you’ve had a hard day. It makes me feel safe, like the Mrs.
Haynes of the world can’t hurt me because you won’t let them.”
She gently stroked his face. “I don’t see scars either. I see a man
with more sex appeal than the law should allow.” Her arms
sneaked around his waist. “I want you so much in so many ways.”

This snippet shows so much, it not only tells us about the man that she's speaking with, but also what a wonderful heart she has in order to see past the scars. Great work!
