Teaser Tuesday

So this week I decided to share a WIP - a novella about Conner Hoffman (half demon from The Leila Marx Novels) and Tasmin (a new character that will play a part in Touching Death) to give some insight into his long, and often lonely, life. It doesn't have a title yet, but you can plan on seeing it in late January (more on that later!)

Like I said....a true work in progress here, but one I'm excited about!

Another night. Another soul.

Chugging back the last of my ale, I scanned the dilapidated tavern for my next victim. Or maybe I should call them my prey, since that’s what I was. A hunter of souls. A destroyer of innocents. For the millionth time in my long existence, I cursed my demon father.

“That’s no way to speak to a lady.”

Through my hazy stupor and incessant self-loathing, I managed to turn my head toward the woman now standing next to me. Her blazing red hair and dark black eyes locked onto my gaze with a ferocity matched only by my own. Something dangerous, yet familiar, trickled off her like an electrical charge ready to ignite. Had I not had so much to drink, she would have scorched me with one look.

She leaned in close enough to rub her ample breasts against my shoulder. I couldn’t help but stare. “You might want to tone down the eyes,” she said and then winked. “You’re going to scare them away before you have a chance to pounce.”
