Hi everyone. It’s been a long time since I found my way here. Charmaine Gordon tagged me on FB the other day and invited me back. I hope you’ve all had a fantastic summer. I’m sharing a snippet from a paranormal novella I’m writing. Working title Mating Song, but subject to change.

Before she’d met Ian, it had been ages since Billie brought a man home. An now here he was for the fourth time, already stripped and walking naked around the room, studying the photographs she’d taken.
“It’s something the way you’ve caught the personality of each wolf; their eyes seem almost human in these pictures.”
“Let’s just say I’ve had a lot of time to study them,” she answered.
Ian shrugged and asked, “Same rules tonight?”
Yes,” she said, pointing at the mat. “I pin you and I’m in control; you pin me…” she stopped to snicker, “well you can try.”
“I’m ready for you tonight,” he said grimly, launching himself at her in a rush.
They waged skin to skin battle, their bodies slick with sweat, when Ian laid his full two-hundred and fity plus pounds across her and she pretended to be pinned.
God she loved playing with him and it would be hard saying goodbye; but it would be much harder explaining that sometimes she turned furry and howled at night.
Welcome back, dear girl!! It’s so nice to ‘see’ you again.
I am intrigued by your main character. I like how it all sort of snuck up on this reader–from the playful teasing that he can try–to her admitting to the reader that she was pretending. And then that last line is a zinger!
Intriguing introduction to your new story. Looking forward to reading more.
Maybe he’d be more accepting and understanding than she anticipates. Great snippet!
She is a serious rascal. Hey Girlfriend, you add a certain something for our gang. So what happens with the naked guy? Hmm.
Welcome back! Enjoyed the snippet and am of course speculating (author brain here) where the plkot will go next. I can see several possibilities and all would make for terrific reading. But i’m sure you have surprises in store for us too!
Hi Gem! I always enjoy your snippets and this one is particularly entertaining!
He might be okay with werewolves. Perhaps he is the persistent and/or tolerant sort.
I’m so glad you’re back. Love reading your snippets.
I’m always drawn into the scene and craving for more.
I love the foreplay!
Welcome back. The snippet is a gem, Gem! I loved her thoughts about explaining to him her little problem with being hirsuit.
Welcome home!! And bringing such intriguing characters with you! Yay us!
