I'm new to this 8 sentence blog hop event. In the past few weeks, I've seen many writers posting excerpts for their published books or WIP. It was fun to read those excerpts, and I discovered new books and authors by doing so. This week I decided to give it a try. Here goes...
This brief snippet is from The Witch's Thief, a Regency-era paranormal romance. Basil Merriweather has spent the morning searching the house for Julia Grey. And he's found her...
The door swung open on quiet hinges and revealed a most peculiar scene. Julia, on her hands and knees, peering under Aunt Petunia's favorite sofa. Basil's breath hitched in his chest at the sight of his beloved's derriere posed invitingly in the air. He paused at the doorway, stunned to find Julia in such a position. Although he was not surprised by his rather masculine appreciation.
"There's nothing under here," Julia proclaimed, and wriggled her bottom again as she swept her hand back and forth.
Basil nearly bit his tongue. His breeches began to feel tight.

The Witch's Thief is currently exclusively available on Kindle. The world-wide release is set for February 12, 2014.
