Welcome to this week's dirty dozen which are taken from my Paranormal Romance Lure of the Blood - scheduled release December - through Evernight Publishing
Heroine Marnie is walking home late at night, a decision which throws her right into her own Twilight Zone...
The whoosh of air and the low male growl were the only warning–– before she even managed to draw much needed air into her lungs, her attacker went flying through the air. Another blur of air and the sickening sounds of tearing flesh, crunching bones and the fluid-filled gurgle of her attacker filled the alley. When she finally managed to get her breathing under control, the stillness was deafening and the cool hand under her chin made her gasp.
Moss green eyes in a face as pale as the moon were boring into her, the dark brows a stark contrast to the luminous skin under the slightly too long unruly mob of jet black hair. The man towered over her and she swallowed nervously, taking in the width of those enormous shoulders and the ribbed muscles she could feel pressing against her bare skin, where his body was holding her up against the wall.
Her skin warmed where his eyes roamed briefly over her exposed torso, before he stepped back and pulled her coat firmly around her.
“Steady, chere. I’ve got you. He’s not going to bother you again. Can you walk?”
The deep, slightly accented voice sent all her nerve endings a-tingle and awareness slammed into her with the full force of a sledgehammer.
“Wh…who are you?”
Things are not what they seem, I can tell you that much ;-)
