I’m in the midst of a dense auto-immune brain fog so no fancy intro this week. Blah. Now, where was I?
This week’s #Rainbowsnippet comes again from Surrogate: Hunted, which is scheduled for release by Supposed Crimes in March 2018. The ebook version will be released on February 18, 2018, so why not head over to Amazon and pre-order your copy while you can?
On that note, I am looking for reviewers and hoping to share the new-release-love at a few similarly minded blogs on the official release date. If you’d like to take part, contact me through either FB or this site’s Contact page, and we’ll see if we can get something worked out. I’d loved to highlight your work too, especially if it’s SFF and/ or LGBT in content (no erotica content though unless it is extremely mild by my standards… I simply choose not to go there in my reading, writing, or on my website).
The setup: Etain is struggling to control her breeding instinct (her She-Beast) when she receives an unexpected offer for assistance. Trn, an older Cycalk woman has offered to keep her safe and Etain, without any other means of guaranteed safety, has accepted. Trn speaks first in this snippet.
“No.” She-Beast growled.
“You not first beast woman I fight.” Trn righted the mug when She-Beast tried to tip it over. “Drink, or I make you.”
Listen to her. Etain pulled back so She-Beast dropped her fist.
“You can’t stop me.” But as soon as She-Beast moved toward the door, Trn pounced, pinning her to the floor and sitting on her arms in one smooth movement.
“I old, but I Cycalk strong.” Trn pinched She-Beast’s nose until she gasped for air, upending the mug into her mouth. “There.” She kept She-Beast’s mouth clamped shut until she swallowed. “Sleep, ‘Tan. I help now.”
