Snippet from Wild West Succubus
I haven’t done Six Sentence Sunday in a while so I thought I’d post a short snippet from my current WIP, to give you a taste of what I’ve been so busy with lately. Wild West Succubus will be a longer addition to my Succubus Chronicles and not a Romance on the Go.
I don’t think a set up is needed for this bit.
Hugo turns his head enough to share a smile so dazzling, my heart does a double beat and my lady parts perk up. “I reckon so.”
Down girl, down. “But we can catch it when it returns, right?”
“That’s the plan. If it returns. Are you ready for lesson three?”
I grin and nod. Our eyes lock and hold for the longest time, and I swear I can feel his heartbeat pulsing and tugging me closer. Only when my balance is compromised do I realize I’ve been slowly leaning toward him like a lovestruck ninny. His ability to rile me up inside is gaining ground, and I don’t understand why. If all gargoyles are this charming, it’s a wonder there are any demons running around. Why he seems so keen on teaching me these lessons, I still don’t understand, but if it keeps him from killing me, I’m more than happy to keep learning. But for how long? How many lessons, and will there be a final exam?
