A Wild Storm- Snippet Sunday (ER)

~~Warning: mature themes~~

On Sundays, I share tidbits of my works in progress as part of Weekend Warrior’s 8-Sentence Sunday

I'm glad to be back after an extended hiatus! This snippet is from Brigid's Awakening, a short erotic fantasy from my upcoming Sons of Herne series.

While on an ill-fated tour of the countryside in the Emerald Isle, Brigid finds refuge from a sudden storm in a stranger's barn...

With her hair tossed over the pillow and a slight smile curving her lips, Brigid relaxed into a welcome sense of peace despite the raging storm outside. The next thing she knew, she was awakened by the crash of the side door banging open, bringing with it a burst of cold wind, a flurry of rain, and the glowing figure of a man who appeared to be as shocked to see her as she was him.

“So,” he said, while waves of golden hair blew in wild chaos about his wide shoulders. “You have come at last.”

She blinked at the stranger. “I’m sorry?”

“And why is the goddess of Imbolc sorry to meet her consort?”

She sat bolt upright, barely remembering she was naked beneath the quilts while she blurted out, “The who?”

So, what do you think?

  5. A classic case of mistaken identity...or is it? I think things are going to get mighty interesting in the next few minutes. :) Nice 8.

  6. Well I'd certainly be as confused as she is! Very dramatic ending to the scene and I definitely want to read more...great 8.

  7. He sounds delicious. I say, let's get to know him before we shove him back into the storm. :)

  8. Great 8 - can't wait to see how this confusion is sorted out.
