WEEKEND WRITING WARRIORS

This time, I’m showcasing another snippet from my work in progress: Luke’s Destiny.  Book 2 in my Love Amongst the Pines series, where the small town of Whispering Pines, South Dakota is host to yet another troubled young couple.  Here is my 8 sentences from the very beginning, when Luke Durant, intent on masquerading as a mail order groom to swindle the lovely Miss Clara Wingate and steal from her family trust, is faced by his worst enemy…

” There’s nothing more dangerous than a man facing a death sentence or a wedding…”

The Snippet~

Just when he’d thought he’d gotten away, Luke heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. Whirling around, he saw the last person he’d expected. Shock warred with anger as he realized he would not get a clean get-away. After so many times wiggling out of harm’s way, he was going to be ended by a mistake. And a stupid mistake at that.

“You think you’re gonna dance away all pretty and such? I know the real reason you joined the gang, Durant. You’re a gor-dammed lying no good son of a rattlesnake.”

Finis~

Thanks lots for stopping by!

Happy Reading,

Leigh
