Well, today I’m thrilled to be joining in on the My Sexy Saturday blog – and it will probably come as no surprise that my seven paragraphs this week are from my new release, Follow the White Rabbit. It’s a fun, short read inspired by the world of Wonderland – I really hope you enjoy! Don’t forget to check out the other great excerpts here.
Mary Ann was embarrassed to feel tears burn her eyes, and she squeezed them shut. “If anyone was looking for me then they would have found me by now. Obviously no one cares.”
The silence stretched out, and she forced herself to open her eyes, needing to see his face, though half-expecting there to be disgust etched on it. She was pathetic; apparently she couldn’t even do a one-night stand without fucking it up before it even started. He was staring at her, but the look on his face was odd and unreadable.
“I’m sorry,” she whispered. “I just feel so alone sometimes, I think I’m going mad.”
A small smile curved his full lips. “We’re all mad here, little mouse.”
She found herself reluctantly smiling back. Perhaps he was right. His smile suddenly broadened into that wide grin.
“I think perhaps you need to see something strange and beautiful.”
He held out his hand, Mary Ann took it before she thought to question. Her feet instantly felt rather odd, as though bubbles were tickling her skin, and looking down she gave a shriek of alarm to see them starting to disappear. He winked at her.
“Don’t let go.”
In Wonderland the strange and magical is everyday, but when a woman who can’t remember her own name meets a shape-shifting cat, anything can happen.
Mary Ann doesn’t remember her life before she wandered into the Woods of Forgetfulness. She doesn’t remember who she was, where she came from, or even her real name—and she’s given up on anyone coming to look for her. Now, she works for the White Rabbit, and if she’s not deliriously happy at least her life is content.
Until, that is, she comes across a Cheshire Cat, a rare shape-shifter, who may be about to turn her life upside down.
In Wonderland, things are rarely what they seem.
