Sneek Peak Sunday is a blog hop where authors share a snippet of a book or work in progress. More snippets can be found by checking out the Sneak Peek Sunday blog.
(If you happen to follow my alter-ego’s blog, I take part in a similar blog hop on Saturday, but that one focuses on science fiction and fantasy.)
This week, my snippet comes from my paranormal romance Close Quarter, which is available now from Loose Id and other outlets.
In this snippet, Silas has just sat down for dinner with Rhys and is about to tell Rhys the very last thing in the world he expects.
Rhys laughed. “What are you, then? Some sort of magician?”
“No, not a magician.” He picked up his glass and drained the last of his scotch. Set it back down. “I’m one of the fae.”
Once more, Rhys went taut with shock. “Fae. You mean like a fairy?”
“Well, I don’t have wings. Nor do I fly about trailing pixie dust.” Silas stroked his thumb over the top of Rhys’s hand. “And I am a bit longer than five inches.”
Color drained from Rhys’s cheeks. “You’re serious.”
