A Mythic Sneak Peek Sunday



Welcome to Sneak Peek Sunday!

Here's my six from Remedy Maker, Book One of the Centaur series. The Remedy Maker's best friend, Aleksander, meets Patience the Wood Nymph for the first time:



****


A gorgeous dark-haired Centaur, with equally handsome dark eyes, leaned his arms on the back of the sofa, resting his chin in his palm. 

"Well, hello sweet-thing. What's your name?"

Patience gripped the edge of the handmade blanket, its soft weave a thin barrier from prying eyes. She peered out, keeping her face half hidden. 

His long fingers stroked an immaculate goatee, framing perfect white teeth when he smiled. Links of thick gold chain circled his tanned neck and swung with his movements. 

"Leave her alone, Alek. She's my…patient." Rhy closed the front door harder than necessary and crossed the room in long strides. His brows pinched over his eyes that flicked over her, checking she remained fully covered. Facing the sorrel-colored Centaur, he crossed his arms and inclined his head. "Let's talk in the kitchen."

Alek's smile grew, but he made no sign of straightening. Double rows of barbed-wire tattoos wound around his right bicep and jumped when he pumped the muscle. "I don't think so." He winked and pointed his chin. "If he's just your remedy-maker, why's your pretty face turning red, sweetheart?"

  6. Is she patience by name and patience by nature? I wonder? Alex sounds like quite a guy/centaur. I love the resurrection of ancient mythical cratures. :-)

    1. In the mythic world of the Boronda Forest, Wood Nymphs like Patience have names with deeper meaning. If I told what that meaning was...I'd be giving the story away. LOL Thanks for coming by, Nancy!
