Yay, it’s weekend and after a rather stressful week all round, I think we’re all needing it. I’m excited to be back taking part in the My Sexy Saturday blog hop, and since the theme this week is ‘Sexy in the Sky’ I thought i’d share a wee excerpt from one of my latest WIPs. This is my deathly allergic witch and cursed vampire novella – and woot, it was just finished last weekend. Well, the first draft anyway, lots of edits to go yet 😉 Hope tou enjoy though x
“You have got to be kidding me?” The look on his face would have been almost amusing if Libby wasn’t already a little worried herself.
“Don’t be such a baby.” She patted the broom in what she hoped was a reassuring manner.
Okay, so maybe it was a slightly older mode. Older in this case meaning ancient and ever so mildly on the decrepit side, but these things were built to last. This had actually been her aunt’s, and a couple of fading stickers on the worn wood at the back hinted at the kind of globe-trotting life Libby had never had. If she was perfectly honest then she’d never actually taken it any further than Cornwall on a mini-break but, really, how much harder could it be to take it that little hop further to Northern Africa?
Venn was still staring her with that ‘hell no’ expression stamped all over his handsome face.
“Look, it’s not like we have a huge amount of options here. Every commercial airline in the country has supernatural security checks now – that would pick you up straight away. Do you have enough power to get yourself there on your own?”
She was 99% sure that he didn’t. She also know that he was going to resent to hell her mentioning it. She’d already gathered that most of his powers had been diminished since he’d been cursed. The smallest surge of power gave him a drawn look, tight lines round his mouth. The amount of power needed to get a body that distance would be well beyond him right now. As she’d expected his face closed down, anger and resentment flashing in those blue eyes.
“No,” his voice was clipped and she saw the effort it took to admit that.
“So, this is the best option. I’m a great driver – honest!”
A long drawn out sigh escaped him. “It appears I have little choice in the matter.”
She flashed him a grin. “That’s the spirit!”
She may be fibbing but shhhh 🙂 Don’t forget to check out the rest of the fab authors taking part today – the link is here
Have a great weekend x
