Blog Hop, Writing Warriors, & Much More!

Aside from finishing the Silken Sheets Summer Seduction Blog Hop (scroll down for details) , I'm participating in the Weekend Writing Warriors mini hop again. The deal is to post 8 sentences from a writing project, published or unpublished. This week I'm offering a bit from my soon-to-be-released Enchanted Skye.

Here's the blurb:

Alexander MacCodrum belongs to a race of shape-shifting sea creatures living on Scotland’s Isle of Skye. When Jenna MacLeod unknowingly adds seven tears to the salt of the sea, she accidentally unleashes an ancient charm that catches the transformed Selkie unawares. Under this binding spell, Alex must win Jenna's heart, or the pain of unrequited love will drive him to take his own life. Unfortunately for Alex, Jenna hasn’t come to Skye looking for love and it will take the force of a hurricane to bring them together. But worse, Jenna’s violent ex-boyfriend has found her at last and Carl has made it perfectly clear – if he can’t have her, no one can.


Setting the Stage:
Alex's brothers and sister realize something isn't quite right about Alex.

My 8:

"I think he was moved by her tears.”

Lachlan asked sharply, “What makes ye say that?”

“What, that she was keening at the water’s edge? Makes sense no, it was her grandmother’s ashes they were sprinkling on the water and…” Eyes growing large, Bea put her hand to her mouth. “Oh my lord! Ye don’t think…”

Frowning, Lachlan said, “It wouldn’t be the first MacCodrum caught that way.”

  1. So they are having a sense of déjà-vu, that's good, now they know the danger, they might be able to help.

  2. Their brother is acting so out of character that it's obvious to them. The problem is, Jenna can't even look Alex in the eye after their night locked in the room. The charm will kill him if she continues to avoid him.

  3. I love this premise of this novel, can't wait to read it! A really excellent excerpt!
