This week's theme is Sexy In The Sky!
I'm sharing seven paragraph excerpt is from my Award-Winning Paranormal/Fantasy romance novel
Scene set up:
Eli, a Troll, is secretly meeting Nubbs, his Centaur contact, deep within the Boronda Forest. In a mythic world where the lines of friends and enemies are blurred, sometimes things aren't exactly what they seem.
While he stared out over the lookout point, dawn broke over the valley. Behind him, the sun struggled to rise, spilling brilliant shades of orange to paint the western mountain range.
Trees on the distant ridge stood like soldiers at attention, lighting up as if they were on fire, spearing streaks of bursting yellow between slots of early morning mist. Beyond the serene stream that zigzagged through the valley below was the flat granite face of the Centaur palace. The tips of the boulders would grow warmer as the daystar climbed higher.
When the older Centaur stepped off the trail into view, Eli checked his watch. The male’s stroll was casual and unhurried, his face expressionless. His devil-may-care fashion was khaki trousers, brown shirt, and leather jacket.
Over the cliff’s edge, wisps of cotton-candy haze broke apart. The ghostly pieces floated upward, then disintegrated in the sun’s powerful rays. To keep warm, Eli stuck his hand back into his pockets.
Nubbs stopped beside him on the flat ground and glanced out at the wide-spread scenery. “Been waiting long?”
“Would you care if I was?”
