#FreeviewFriday #BlueMoon!

Welcome to the this week’s #FreeviewFriday, where we’re back with another snip from Blue Moon. After showing a hint of upcoming conflict last time, I thought I’d use this week to show a glimpse at life with the Holloway’s for Jem. Hope you enjoy:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dressed in a green sweater and jeans, my blonde hair still wet against my shoulder blades, I jogged into the kitchen as Sean lowered a plate holding four slices of toast and two poached eggs onto the table.
He inclined his head. “Sit.”
I sent him a smile on the way to my usual spot, parked my rear in the oak-carved chair.
Ethan smirked from the opposite seat, humour lending a shine to dark eyes that matched Sean’s. “Good evening.”
I picked up my fork. “You’re getting funnier, Ethan. You’ve been practicing again, haven’t you?”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ethan–always finding himself amusing, bless. ;)

I hope you enjoyed this weeks snippet. See you next time for another round of FVF and peek at what’s in store for Cole and Benjamin.

As I have said before, any and all are welcome to join me in this weekly shenanigan. HOWEVER, if you do so, I URGE you to keep the shared snippets short and sweet. Mine will be a maximum of TEN (10) sentences. To help identification of these posts, I shall be hashtagging them (for Twitter purposes) as #FreeviewFriday.

#FreeviewFriday #BlueMoon!

Welcome to the this week’s #FreeviewFriday, where we’re back with another snip from Blue Moon. Continuing on from Poppy’s cajoling over the male pack members and their ‘needs’, here is your peek; hope you enjoy:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I couldn’t tell her that, as a rule, the pack didn’t date humans because past experience showed them the consequences could be catastrophic—not for themselves but for the humans. “I’ve never thought about it.” I hadn’t needed to.
“Oh, come on. Men have needs. Sooner or later, those men of yours will want to get those needs fulfilled.”
She probably thought the conversation helped.
She couldn’t have been more mistaken.
My eyes had been opened to the possibility that I may not always be the sole female to interact with the pack.
I welcomed the idea about as much as a bout of diarrhoea.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Uh-oh. ;)

#FreeviewFriday #BlueMoon!

Welcome to the this week’s #FreeviewFriday. As promised, I’m back with another snip from Blue Moon. This next scene I’ll share comes in closely after the excerpt I shared a fortnight ago. Hope you enjoy:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“You really don’t like the idea of other females invading your territory, do you, Jem?” Poppy asked over the hum of the Porsche from her cocooned position in the passenger seat.
I shrugged.
“I know you have a strong bond with Josh, so I understand you feeling pushed but, but . . . it’s not only him, is it?”
“I don’t know. It’s just . . .” I paused to consider. “None of them have shown an interest in women.”
“Just because they haven’t advertised their attraction doesn’t mean the feelings aren’t there, sweetie.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I imagine Poppy is most probably right. ;)

#FreeviewFriday #BlueMoon!

Man, it seems like forever since my last Freeview Friday post, and I’m mega excited to finally be able to share some stuff with y’all again. If you recall, I made mention of alternating the weeks between snips from Blue Moon and Escort to Insanity from the Make Believe antho as they both release at the same time? Well, I think I will likely still do that, though they won’t necessarily be weekly. It depends on what else I have going on in my life. But I shall defo try my best.

So first up for your perusal is Blue Moon. If you read the excerpt, where I shared the opening a few weeks back, you’ll know that Jem arrived at the building site to find a dodgy bird watching some of the pack. This next scene I’ll share comes in closely after that. Hope you enjoy:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The door swung open, and Josh entered, his green eyes sparkling beneath a mess of shaggy, dark blond curls, and a wide grin spread across his face.
My gaze flittered to Sean.
His expression matched his pack brother’s as though Josh had impressed him with his ability to chat with a young, attractive female.
Poppy and I exchanged another glance—a hoard of unspoken communication passing between us. Knowing Poppy also had a bad vibe about the stranger made me feel a little better.
Josh unwrapped his second burger and shovelled half into his mouth as he leaned against the counter beside me.
I peered up at him. “Who was she?”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yep, sounds like Jem’s still bugged by the female stranger. ;)

FREEVIEW FRIDAY {ETERNAL}! #FVF

Hey all, and happy Friday. Thank you for stopping by. Today will be the last time I share a mini-excerpt from my PNR novella Eternal,   because it is Due out in 10 days! and I hope to have something new to share for the next FVF.

BUT … because this is the last Eternal FVF, I’ve decided to share not one, but two snippets.

Here you go. Still in the market place (Jem speaks first, to Jessica after she has dragged her off around a corner) …

“What on earth is wrong?”

“Elizabeth Wells.”

I rolled my eyes but with no ounce of humour. Elizabeth had never quite forgiven me for ‘snaring’ Sean, a male she had deemed worthy of herself though I suspected she never wanted him for more than a short-term venture into the unknown. “What rumour has she begun now?”

“Oh, she is sharing her usual vindictive lies, but she has evidently exhausted her supply of locals to tittle-tattle to. She has now taken to spreading her spiteful opinion to a complete stranger.”

Do we sense trouble is coming from the gossiping of ‘Elizabeth Wells’?

Let’s take a look …

“The stranger was a male?” I asked. “Are you certain?”

“I am capable of telling the difference between genders. Especially upon one … so …” Panic glistened in her eyes as she trailed off, igniting my own.

“So …?”

“Big.” She pointed over my shoulder, and as she did so, his scent swamped me.

Werewolf!

Uh-oh!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my Eternal snippets. Tune in next time to see what new stuff I have up my sleeve.

FREEVIEW FRIDAY {ETERNAL}! #FVF

Hey all, and happy Friday. Thank you for stopping by. Today, I’ll be sharing another mini-excerpt from my PNR novella Eternal,  due out in 17 DAYS!

Following on from last week, Jem is still at the market place, though temporary separated from her sister … here’s your taste of Eternal:

As I lingered beside the bakery stand, deep inhalations drew in my favourite fragrance of the market: cottage loaves piled high next to plaits and scones. Beside me, Old Mrs Crowley pawed at the brick loaves, squeezing one after the other whilst the proprietor watched with fidgety fingers, probably hoping for her to stop.

As the sweet and warm yeasty fragrance merged with heavenly musk, I tilted my head to the side, peering around the rotund baker until my gaze locked with the dark one two rows over.

“Hey.” Sean’s greeting scarcely caused his lips to move, and would reach none other, but carried to me as surely as if he had been at my side.

Lower lip caught between my teeth, I smiled.

“Really, young lady, you should be ashamed of yourself. Can you not show a modicum of decorum?”

I turned to the ancient woman beside me, and ordering myself not to point out that leaving the house with a food stain upon ones cheek could hardly be considered dignified, dipped my chin, adopting an expression of remorse. “Apologies, Mrs Crowley. I really do try my best …” I just never seem to succeed.

I doubt I’d succeed where Sean’s concerned either. ;)

FREEVIEW FRIDAY {ETERNAL}! #FVF

Hey all, and happy Friday. Thank you for stopping by. Today, I’ll be sharing another mini-excerpt from my PNR novella Eternal,  due out in a little over 2 weeks.

This week we see Jem and her sister on their weekly trip out to the local market place … here’s your taste of Eternal:

Dead boar held such an unpleasantly powerful aroma, nothing at all like the richness of the cooked product it became, and I switched to breathing through my mouth as Jessica and I passed the butcher’s stand.

“’Morning, Miss Stonehouse.”

We both turned toward the ruddy male, who stood poised with his cleaver above a soon-to-be-amputated trotter. His auburn hair curled across his brow, and his cheeks blushed an even deeper shade once he captured my sister’s focus, however I knew from experience she would offer him no more attention than a polite response—proven when she nodded and steered us away.

Jessica had been approached by more males than she could possibly handle in the three years since I had lived with the pack. Apparently, the locals believed one ‘brazen’ sister led to another.

Little did they know, if Jessica chose to snare them, the decision would be all hers, and they would stand no chance of escape.

Jem’s sister sounds like a right one, eh? ;)

FREEVIEW FRIDAY {ETERNAL}! #FVF

Hey all, and happy Friday. Thank you for stopping by. Today, I’ll be sharing another mini-excerpt from my PNR novella Eternal,  due out in a little over 3 weeks.

Following on from last week, we get a glimpse at just why Sean was so edgy about his wounds and the trespassers … here’s your taste of Eternal:

“I did not wish for you to feel afraid.” He stalked across the room.

Tearing my gaze from the seeping liquid, I studied the power in his body, evident in each and every movement he made, no matter how minute. From his dark mop of hair, across his muscular back, all the way down his defined legs to the tips of his toes, strength and might dominated Sean’s body like a tailored uniform. I would never feel anything but safe whilst beside him.

“The only thing I have to fear is losing you,” I said.

“Which is no less a fear than the one I hold. Is it even any different, in fact?” Before I could answer, he spun, and in three strides stood beside me. His fingers folded around mine, and he drew me to my feet, taking my face between his palms until I tumbled heart first into his dark, glossy stare. “How can I protect you when I fail to defend myself?”

Aww, bless him. :)
