Hey, six best hoppers! Happy Sunday 🙂
Haven’t been here in awhile. Thought I’d give you a snippet from one of my backlist: Eclipse of Her Heart. In this excerpt, Seri got lost in the maze and an unknown man agrees to help her out of it… though he has made it clear he isn’t happy about it.
Sighing in what looked like frustration and rubbing his hand over his forehead, he stepped forward quickly and lifted her in his arms. She squeaked as he did so, but realized that this would be the best way to travel…that was until he tossed her over his shoulder and took off. “You Neanderthal nematode!” she called as the blood rushed to her head.
His gate was surprisingly even as he darted in and out of the maze walkways. When he stopped abruptly and placed her back on her feet, she swayed a bit. “If you take that entrance,” he pointed to one behind her, “and turn right, you will be at the opening. Now, I must go.”
“Wait!” she said as she tried not to keep weaving. “I don’t even know your name.”
He raised an eyebrow in a distinct my-name-is-none-of-your-business move. Groaning, she shrugged. “Fine. Thank you for getting me out of here, you Neanderthal nematode.” The last two words were spoken under her breath.
“What is a Neanderthal nematode?” he asked curiously.
Her lips twitched. “A Neanderthal is a big idiot. A nematode is a worm.”
Ahhh, Seri really knows how to tame the savage beast, doesn’t she?
Eclipse of Her Heart

On a quest to find the woman foretold in a prophecy from his world, he is at first annoyed at Seri who keeps getting in his way before coming to enjoy her company and falling in love with her.
