Mom's Day Snippet Sunday!

Morning Y'all and Happy Mother Day's to the Snippet Sunday Moms!!

I didn't post last week because my blog was under What do you think? Isn't it purdy? I've got two releases coming out this fall, and in an effort to brand myself (a job I have avoided for as long as humanly possible) I recently redesigned both my blog and website. You can see my website here if you want:  :-)

For today's snippet, I'm going to pick up two weeks ago where I left off. Caedmon and Rowena were in the forest, surrounded by fog, and she was...exploring his body? I'm skipping ahead just a bit to what happens next.

~* ~ 

A twig snapped.
Caedmon froze, his focus riveted to hers, muscles coiled and tense under her palm. Irritation hardened his features, quickly chased by thin-lipped fear.
Dammit, they’d been found. But by who?
The answer leapt into Caedmon’s eyes. Doesn’t matter. A garrison of Sievere’s men is too great a risk to ignore. Fight now, reason later…or prepare to be arrested…mayhap worse.
She nodded and pressed against him, but he tightened his grip, keeping her in place. He slowly tipped his head toward the pile of weapons he’d left near his saddlebags. She jerked her chin in the opposite direction, indicating her intent to head for the forest. If they were about to be attacked, her best offense would be to see without being seen. Use the fog to transform her into a lethal phantom, striking within the cover of trees.

Your site is a beautiful sight. :)

And I love a heroine who can think on her feet--and a hero who trusts her to do just that!

Very cool snippet, though I would have liked the few lines before this, too. ;-)

Love the quote by Marianne Williamson, btw. Great words to remember on a daily basis!!!

Nice showing of their silent conflict. This way. No that way. And somebody had better be right!

I like the way she thinks, AJ. :) Great snippet.
