Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors

Welcome to Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors, you chance to sample the work of a talented group of authors. When you finish here you can find more excerpts at

We'll continue with out excerpts from Flood. I hope you're enjoying them because I really enjoyed writing the book. Before we get to the except, let me share an Amazon 5 star review with you. I was very pleased with it.

If you love animals and romance, this is the book for you. Aria is a caring veterinarian and Caleb is a former convict who ends up working for her. The romance has a nice, steady build, not too much at once. You can see how these people really fall for each other. I love how protective Caleb is and how Aria believes in him. The flood adds a tense, exciting element to the climax. I definitely recommend this book!

Drawn together by their love of animals, Aria De Luca and Caleb Hawkins burn for each other. They never suspected that malignant forces around them were successfully plotting Caleb’s ruin from the moment he entered her life. When the flood of a century strikes Aria’s hometown, an alienated Caleb is all that stands between her and catastrophic loss.

Last Week:
He struggled to a sitting position when the woman reached them. The sun shone directly into his eyes so he couldn’t see her face. “Hi, I’m Caleb Hawkins. Can you tell me where to find Dr. De Luca?”

“I’m Dr. De Luca.” She reached for Peaches’ collar, but the dog evaded her and resumed licking him. “Sorry about the dog jumping you. She didn’t hurt you, did she?” 

He escaped Peaches’ embrace and scrambled to his feet. Good grief! 

This week: 
Now that the sun was out of his eyes he saw that the doctor was the best looking woman he’d ever seen. The dark hair that he’d previously observed gleamed blue-black in the sun and curled gently on the ends. Her eyes were dark velvety brown, her skin on the olive side. He gulped; she was slender, but she had curves in all the right places.

He forced himself to stop staring at her. “Do you know who I am?”

“What did you say your name was?”

“Caleb Hawkins.”

She glanced at Peaches, who was still busy licking his hand. “You’re Peaches’ friend from the shelter, right?”
