Welcome to Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors, your chance to sample the work of a talented group of authors. I've been sharing samples from Return Engagement for several weeks now, but starting next week I'll be moving on to something else. Last week we left my heroine Elizabeth at the mercy of a man with a gun who tricked her into coming to a deserted motel. I'm skipping a lot of text and finishing up with this scene. Remember that Richard is an FBI agent. Check out the graphic at the bottom of the page. I have a new book coming out November 1, and I'd love for you to come to my cover reveal. I'm giving away prizes. (Are you tempted? I hope so.)
You can find more snippets here and here.
A spasm of mirth overcame the small man. “It’s too late for that, Agent Lovinggood. I have a new plan. You see, I won’t leave here without repaying you for what you did to me and my family.” He cocked his head. “Who would it hurt you more to lose: your lover or your father? I think maybe
you could get another woman, but you only have one father, and I only have time for one shot.”
As the gun swung toward Senator Lovinggood, Elizabeth reacted without a second’s hesitation. She threw herself on top of the senator as a loud roar filled the air. Richard watched in horror as a red stain bloomed on her temple.
