Wednesday WIP

Hi all,

Hope your week’s been going well. Mine’s been a busy one and looks like that’s going to continue. Last day at my old job today (yay!) but still fully booked up for the rest of the week – not to mention I have a release out! Speaking of… today’s excerpt is from Love Reawakened, which yup, is re-releasing tomorrow. I’m very excited, so hope you enjoy 🙂

 

350px-Creatures-Voodoo_priestessGarret dropped her hand to knock on the front door, and when it swung effortlessly open, he stepped inside, with a brief glance back. Emma nodded at him and followed him down a short corridor into a spacious, airy living room. The modern theme followed through here. Spotless, it was like something out of an interior design magazine, the sort of house that looked stunning but you wondered how anyone lived there comfortably. Emma glanced around for any sign of the occupant.

Instead, the only sign of life was a black cat padding silently into the room. For some reason, it made her feel a little more comfortable. Of course, crazy people could still have pets, but somehow, if someone liked animals, they didn’t seem quite as bad.

“Here, kitty.” She crouched down, clicking her tongue.

The cat lazily changed direction to head for her. Emma was reaching down to pet it, when it turned its head, and she jumped back with a shriek. One side of the animal was sleek and normal while the other had several large patches where the skin was hanging off. The animal looked up at her curiously with one bright green eye and one faded milky one.

“Shit! What the hell is it?” she asked Garret.

“Zombie cat.” His tone was bland, but he gazed down at the creature with a look of slight disapproval.

A low, feminine voice rang out from the doorway, making them both whirl around. “Now, now, Garret, you know his name is Mittens. You’ll hurt his feelings talking like that.”

Take care x
