You Were Testing Me -Snippet Sunday

~~Adult language warning~~

On Sundays, I share tidbits of my works in progress as part of Weekend Warrior’s 8-Sentence Sunday. This week's snippet is from my work in progress DISORDERLY COWBOYS, book 6 of my LONE WOLVES OF SHAY FALLS cowboy/werewolf/menage series.

Normally I skip around to different passages from week to week, but lately I've been posting from the scene where my character gets trapped on a roof. I didn't think it was fair to leave her hanging! Last Sunday, hunky cowboy Jayson saved Lana from the roof. Now he persists in wanting an answer for why she'd been up there...

Lana turned from Jayson and began pacing back and forth. “I could sense you after you'd gone, and I figured that meant you could sense me too.” She stopped and folded her arms. “I just wasn’t sure you'd bother showing up if you felt I was in danger.”
The confusion in his eyes morphed into understanding. “You were testin’ me.”
“But I hadn't planned on knocking the ladder over and really stranding myself on the roof.”
He shook his head and took his phone out of his pocket. “To quote my sister, what the fuck, Lana?”

  1. I love the snippet. He's really calm considering what she did and testing his feelings unless he has some sexy pay back planned :)

  2. Yes, this isn't the kind of thing a guy would understand LOL. Really enjoyed this excerpt!

  3. Great snippet. I think he's a little too calm at the whole situation because he's planning some form of payback.

  4. Great 8! I got the feeling he's one of those guys that goes still before all hell breaks loose. Nice.

  5. WTF indeed--that poor planning on her part could've ended badly.

    Now the question is, how will he respond to her testing him?

  6. Methinks she will be dealt with ; ) Excellent eight!

  7. Nice 8, Rose. Very natural--the dialogue doesn't feel forced at all. :-)
