Saturday Sample and Weekend Writing Warriors


Welcome to Saturday Sample and Weekend Writing Warriors. Today we'll continue to share excerpts from Never Trust a Pretty Wolf. On Sunday when you finish here, do go to http://www.wewriwa.blogspot.com for more excerpts from a bunch of great authors.

Blurb:
Liesel Wolf has a secret, a dangerous secret she’ll go to any lengths to conceal. When she’s paired in a charity game with sexy marshal Andy Bryce, a man with secrets of his own, her carefully constructed world comes crashing down, and Liesel’s on a collision course with her past.



Excerpt: 
Chapter One

Last Week


“Liesel, what does the GPS say?”

Andy’s voice jerked Liesel out of her reverie. “Uh, we have to climb a little higher.”

When she and Andy had left the pool behind, the trail turned sharply upward. In spots the path almost petered out. When rocks or trees blocked the way, they had to step off the trail and try to make their way around the obstruction. Tree branches slapped Liesel’s face as she stumbled over forest debris. Gnats buzzed around her head, making the climb even harder. Worse yet, mosquitoes were feasting on her ankles.

This week: I'm picking up where we left off last week.

I can't wait to find out what her past damage is. What is she hiding from where the law is concerned? And thanks for the glimpse of his chesticals!

His comment made ma laugh, in view of her internal dialogue at that same point. Terrific snippet!

Jenna said...

Sounds like she's not a naturally outdoorsy girl. But sweaty does have its perks--plastered shirt revealing all. I think I'd want to touch him too! Great snippet!

Uh-oh! If they stop, that give her more time to take him in. I wonder how she'll deal with the temptation. Nice snippet!

Teresa Cypher said...

Haha. She knows not to take an interest in him, but that doesn't stop her. Great story! :-)

Internal conflicts are the best kind, so I enjoyed this.

I'm really curious now to know what she has against marshals.
