WWW/ Sunday snippet # 2



As promised from last Sunday- meet the charming Draven North, spy extraordinaire.

(You can see last weeks HERE and meet Ribbon Winters if you haven't had the chance)

Snippet is from Ribbon of Darkness Book 1 of The Trouble with Elves series coming this December.



Draven walked out of the bookstore into the Florida heat, something he was sure he'd never get used to. He preferred the chill of the North Pole, the icicles glistening, the snow falling in slow motion around Mr. Claus's shop. He put his hand up to keep the sun from his eyes and headed to his hotel. He'd found what he'd been looking for, he just hadn't expected it to be a her. His cock twitched in his jeans. Damn thing had more of a mind of its own than the stubborn reindeer. He clenched his jaw and thought of anything besides the perfect tip of her ear, the slender milky white neck, or Santa forbid, those deep chestnut eyes glaring at him. She had fire, and for some forsaken reason he wanted to see it again.

  5. "Damn thing had more of a mind of its own than the stubborn reindeer." I have an image of antlers on his little friend now...and a red nose! LOL!

  10. Moving from the North Pole to Florida seems to have put his hormones upside down.
