Sneak Peak Sunday

Here I am, trying to do two at once and I’m not even at home right now. Half the fun of these hops isn’t just reading the comments left by others, but it’s getting to read sneak peak snippets from all the truly talented authors who participate in the Hops with me. I am on the road this weekend, so anyone I don’t get a chance to read in the hotel, I will do as soon as I get home on Tuesday.

My Sneak Peak submission is from Demon Seduction. In this scene, Kael the Corruptor has trapped Delilah in the back broom closet at the bar where she works. As the line between seducer and seduced begin to blur, his wooing attempts are interrupted by the bartender. Kael Taps him–a form of mind control or, as Kael describes it, “Short-term memory loss combined with a healthy dose of imposed compliance. Don’t worry, I have no intention of sending him out to play in traffic.”

The bartender blinked, swaying. “The usual?”

“Please. Why don’t you go back to your bar and give us, say, fifteen minutes or so.”

“You need to leave,” Delilah told him. Those pink spots of embarrassment on her cheeks had flared into spots of real upset.

Kael looked at her, then sighed. “You’re right. That is shameful. Too much time spent with prostitutes; I apologize. I don’t know what I was thinking. Jackson, make that forty minutes.”

“Oh my God! You are a pig!”

“Forty minutes is extremely respectable considering I intend to do all the work, and this is a broom closet. My darling Delilah, I am trying to think of you.”
