A Kiss for the Hero -Snippet Sunday

~~Today's snippet includes mature content~~

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

I'm currently writing/editing DISARMING COWBOYS, book 7 of my Lone Wolves of Shay Falls series. 

Last time, our heroine Jayel realized she her insanely gorgeous rescuer is also a werewolf. (Don't you hate when that happens? LOL.) Let's pick up a short time later while Jerrod is still attempting to free her from her chains.

Jerrod reached for the padlock, but he stopped and glanced at Jayel oddly. “I want to see somethin’ before I pick this lock.”
She didn't even have a chance to ask before Jerrod had his lips pressed to hers. She tried to squirm away, but various parts of her awareness spun into orbit until all that remained was his scent, his warm lips, and the sexy moan deep in his throat while he tasted her. Her stomach was spinning as fast as her head, but when she felt the flick of his tongue between her lips, she pulled back and kicked at him with her boot.
“What the hell are you doing?” she asked, trying to level him with a glare.
“Doesn’t the hero usually get a thank-you kiss?”
After he saves the girl.”

So what do you think?

I'm J. Rose Allister, wife, working mom, and the author of over twenty-five books. Somewhere in between one and the next, I love hanging out here on my blog and over on Twitter. Give me a comment or follow-I love chatting with people!


  1. Yes indeed, he's supposed to do the rescuing first LOL. Excellent excerpt!

  2. LOL, AFTER he saves the girl. She's right about that. Fun 8

  3. Love the last line : ) Put a smile on my face this morning!

  4. These two are fun. She's right, the kiss comes after. Wouldn't want to mess up his hero concentration and nix the rescue.

  5. I wonder what he's trying to 'see?' Is it just the kiss, or something else?

    And he should definitely save the kissing for after. Kissing during is a good way to slow down or fail the rescue!

  6. Lol! "After he saves the girl." She's feisty. I wonder what he had to see first?? Intriguing. Great writing, Rose! :-)

  7. Heh heh...what does he have to see indeed? But hey, why wait until after saving the girl when you can get the kiss up front? :) Thanks for stopping by, everyone.
