Six of the Best – From Rescued by the Spy
Hello, everyone. Welcome back to my blog, and this week’s Six of the Best post. For Six of the Best, a variety of authors are sharing six paragraphs from a published work or a work in progress. This week, I’m sharing six paragraphs from Rescued by the Spy, my action-adventure, sci-fi, erotic romance. This segment is from the first page, wherein Nina is trying to get home via a shortcut through a dark tunnel.
Sweat trickled down Nina’s spine and between her breasts as she hurried toward the open end of the tunnel. The footsteps weren’t furtive, but were easily keeping pace with her. She gritted her teeth, primal fear mixing with self-preservation instinct. In front of her, a shadow moved, and she knew, even as she gasped and came to a clumsy halt, that she was in deep trouble.
“Hey, lady,” the man snarled. He was only two-and-a-half meters in front of her, but she couldn’t quite make out his features yet.
“What do you want?” she demanded, trying to keep her voice modulated and not quite accomplishing it. “Let me pass. If you want my groceries or credits, I’ll give them to you. Just let me go.”
He laughed, and the sound forced a frisson of fear from Nina’s tailbone to her scalp. The other footsteps had stopped just as the man came into view. His face was broad, his hair light brown, his eyes light, too, but she couldn’t tell what color. He wore a thick moustache, and one side lifted as he grinned. “What do you think, boys?” he asked.
Nina looked over her shoulders to find three other men stood nearby, all wearing the same tight-fitting jeans and pseudo-leather jacket as their leader. They smirked and shook their heads.
“Sorry, lady, but we’re not interested in groceries,” the headman said. “And you couldn’t possibly have enough credits.” He nodded, and the three thugs behind her grabbed for Nina.
This hop is meant for all genres, so follow along the trail and get some looks into all kinds of books. The hop is small, but mighty.
