Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday, your chance to sample snippets from some wonderful authors. My own excerpt comes from Rest Thy Head. In this excerpt, my hero who was burned when he was in the Marines is thinking about Peyton O'Malley, the new girl working at Rest Thy Head.

He should feel grateful to even be alive. Rest Thy Head and the beauty all around it was still his to
enjoy, and he could still help Patrick make a success out of the inn.

If only his body would forget about things that could never happen again! No woman wanted a freak, which was exactly what he had become. Why did Peyton O’Malley, who had the face of an angel, have to show up at Rest Thy Head and disturb his hard won serenity? With a snort of disgust, he shoved his plate aside. He had lost his appetite.

Blurb:
Running away from a fiancĂ© who betrayed her, Peyton O’Malley finds employment at a beautiful mountain inn called Rest Thy Head. She didn’t expect to live in the haunted room or to fall for the inn’s owner, a fire-scarred, war veteran who uses the inn to hide away from the world. She didn’t expect her sister to show up at Rest Thy Head either, much less her formidable mother. 

Now, thanks to the aid of a friendly ghost, Peyton has a shot at true love, and so does her sister Ashley, provided the guys cooperate of course!

Oh, poor guy!

The thing men tend to forget, when they're casting themselves as beasts, is that beauties are often attracted to those . . .

(that sounds a lot weirder than I intended, but you know what I mean :D )

Aw, what a shame, very realistic and emotive snippet. Hopefully he'll get his appetite back soon enough ;)

I feel so sorry for him, but I thought his inner dialog was very realistic for the situation. Can't wait to read more! I'm invested in these characters already.

It seems like life has been hard on him but he clearly can't hide forever.

Oh man, he's got it bad. Great snippet, Elaine. :)

Great snippet. His inner dialogue is great -- and of course the way he feels is all her fault.
