Saturday Sample and Weekend Writing Warriors: Never Trust a Pretty Wolf


 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

“It’s a dead man.”

Liesel shoved Andy aside and bolted out of the cave as if the dead man had suddenly come to life and grabbed her ankle in the dark, his bloody, battered face staring into hers. She heard Andy shout, “Liesel, stop!” but she paid no attention to the fool. She made it back to the place where they’d found the fake diamonds before Andy grabbed her.

“Let me go! I want to get out of this awful place!”

“Liesel; stop screaming! The man’s dead; he can’t hurt you.”

He gave her a little shake, and Liesel buried her face in her trembling hands. If he only knew...


This week: I've picked up where we left off last week.  For those coming from Weekend Writing Warriors, even though I posted last week I forgot to add my link so to find out what they found in the cave you'll need to read last week's excerpt.

Well, I don't think the dead man or the men with guns are part of the game. I hope not, anyway. An intense snippet!

Wow, this is quite an outburst of action. Very interesting stuff going on.

Aurora Springer said...

Wow - a dead man and live ones with ammo? Quite a change.

This is definitely not what they signed up for with this charity game!

Veronica Scott said...

Wow, the story has taken a dangerous turn now! I sure wasn';t expecting what they found and now these guys trying to kill them....it all kicked into high gear! And she seems to know a lot more than he does about what's going on... Great snippet.

Someone changed the rules of the game! Can't wait to find out what's bothering our heroine.
