The Weekend Writing Warriors hosts a group of writers who share excerpts of their published works or works-in-progress every Sunday for reader's enjoyment. Please, be sure to check out the other writers in this group. You might find your next great read!
This brief snippet comes from my work-in-progress, Loving Boone, which I'm writing for this year's National Novel Writing Month, otherwise known as NaNoWriMo. I've been behind on my word count, but I'm writing consistently every day now and I hope to catch up by next week. Despite having an outline, the story is evolving in ways I hadn't imagined!
I'm writing a paranormal romance with a shapeshifter hero. This is Beth-Ann's first meeting with Boone. They haven't seen each other in over two years.
"We didn't kill them," the man muttered.
Beth-Ann's gaze swept down to find the man staring in her direction, his fierce green eyes nearly glowing through all those long, dark strands of hair.
Finally, she could see enough of him and recognition slammed into her. Her chest constricted, her lungs fought for air, but she remained locked in his gaze.
“Boone?” She spoke his name, but doubted anyone heard her. For a moment, the world fell away and it was only the two of them in the room with more unanswered questions than she ever thought existed.
