Well, it’s Wednesday – known by some as hump day! I must admit it’s been a little bit of a drag getting back to the work grind this week, so I thought I would spread a bit of cheer and share a wee teaser from Scarlett Legacy. This is Damian seeing Natalia for the first time, and while I defend the guy against most things, I must admit he wasn’t having the purest of thoughts (hey, no one’s perfect!). Let me know what you think 🙂
Damian’s jaw clenched as he watched her amble through the woods, seemingly lost in her own world and paying no attention to any possible dangers. He lifted his head, breathing in deeply to take in her scent on the drifting breeze. While he’d been expecting a reaction it still hit him like a sucker punch in his gut. His stomach clenched and his body hardened.
His inner beast was already raging at him. The burning need to mark her, to possess her, rising up within like a force of nature but he grit his teeth and forced it down. He was not some undisciplined pup unable to control himself. Years of leading his people had driven into him patience and control above all else.
Instead, he forced himself to stay hidden for now, easily keeping pace with her. She was exactly as he’d always imagined—dark curls flowed down her back and framed delicate features, high cheekbones, and huge dark eyes with thick lashes. Everything about her drew him in, but he’d waited too long to rush things now.
When he’d first sensed her, that indescribable pull that couldn’t be anything else, he’d thought he was going crazy. He’d given up hope long ago, and yet there she was, walking through his woods as though she’d always been meant to be there.
He watched as she paused, looking around her with confusion on her face. She turned in a slow circle, her brow furrowed, and her teeth biting into her lush bottom lip. She was lost, he realized. Well, that was just perfect. His teeth bared in a wicked smile, he could go and “rescue” her. She would think he was Prince Charming when actually he was the big bad wolf.
I can’t believe it’s out in just 2 days – eek! I’m starting to get very excited, and I’m hoping you are too. I’m going to try something a little different for this one and attempt to do an Amazon Push. This means that I’m asking everyone to buy Scarlett Legacy on Amazon on release day or the day after. If more people are buying within a shorter time period then it boosts it up in the Amazon rankings and gets it lots of shiny extra exposure (and if it gets to a certain level then Amazon will start promoting it!). Now, because I’m well aware I’m asking you all a big favour here, I’m going to try and make it worth your while 🙂 So, not only do you get a shiny new book to read, but if you buy it on Friday or Saturday and send me proof of purchase (so, just a screen shot, email copy or Amazon code) then you’ll be entered into a prize giveaway. Prizes will include ebooks, promo goodies and a grand prize of a gorgeous wolfie trinket box (and it really is so pretty, I might need to get a second one to keep lol).
I’m also running a Release Day Party on Facebook here, with giveaways, teasers and cake (okay, it’s virtual cake, but at least it has no calories!) so would be great if you could drop by and join the fun! 🙂
Take care x
