Hope your week’s doing well. I may have been slightly distracted on my original Nano project into a Christmas story – but hey, it’s almost that time of year. Everyone loves Christmas stories right? *shifty look* Anyway, I’m enjoying it and it won’t be too long so hopefully can get it finished off soon and then out in time 🙂
In the meantime thoufh, I’m sharing a teaser from my next wolves book, which I promise will be out soon! I know I seem to have been saying that for a while but edits have taken longer than I thought they would and I don’t want it going out until it’s right. In the meantime though, hope you enjoy this 🙂
Quickening her pace, she headed down the winding track towards the main village. The light was fading fast, casting deep and slightly creepy shadows, while every rustle in the trees on either side made her start. It’s just your imagination, just your imagination. Or was it? The rustling to her left was getting louder and steadier. Her heart started pounding as she broke into a half jog. The noises were closer though, effortlessly keeping up with her. Sweat broke out, trickling down her back and stinging her eyes. Oh God, what the hell had she been thinking heading out in the dark on her own?
Katya. The voice in her head was deep, familiar and edged in concern
Niko? Relief made her not only telepathically reach out towards him – something she’d never done before – but stop in her tracks. Thank God! He would find her and…
A huge, furry shape sprang from the shadows, heading straight for her. She screamed in terror as it knocked her down. There was a glimpse of bared teeth, hot breath on her face. Frantically she began scrabbling backwards, another shriek escaping her when a firm hand gripped her arm, dragging her to her feet. A human hand. For an instant she thought Niko had somehow magically found her, but this man was taller, thinner, with shaggy light brown hair. He was human though.
“Please,” she gasped, “you have to help me.”
He smiled at her and his eyes glowed in the faint moonlight. Fuck, not so human. She tried to run but the hand tightened on her arm, she was dragged back against him, a strong-smelling cloth pressed against her face. Her struggles slowed and darkness crept in.
Take care x
