WeWriWa: Off the Beaten Path


As if you didn't have enough on your plate, you have to worry about the person at your back. That's my hero's concern as he prepares to go into the heart of darkness to confront an unimaginable evil with a woman in his care who is, shall we say, less than emotionally stable. Here's another peek at MIDNIGHT SHADOWS, appearing at month's end as the latest reissue in my Touched by Midnight vampire romance series:


“Are you crazy, Dr. Reynard?” 

“W-what?” 

“You know, crackers, loony tunes, nuts, bonkers - are you insane? Is your instability going to put all of us in danger once we get out into the jungle? If it is, I need to know now, because my job is to protect your oldest, dearest friend on his little hunting and gathering trek into the wilds and I have enough to worry about without waiting for you to go falling off the deep end.” 

“Don’t you worry about me, Mr. Cobb.” She chiseled out the words as if striking them in stone. “My problems are not your concern.” 

“You’re wrong there, Doc. You are my problem and I’ve got to decide on how to deal with you.”

I'll try to stop in to visit everyone but be warned, I'm on the last chapter of PRINCE OF HONOR and once I'm on a roll . . . I should have a snippet from PoH next week, or maybe from the YA paranormal proposals I'm pulling out to polish up.

Remember, MIDNIGHT KISS and MIDNIGHT TEMPTATION are still on SALE until May 15. Links are on last week's posts if you're looking for some historical vampire romance to sink your teeth into (or your mom would like it on her e-reader for Mother's Day!)

Looking forward to seeing what you've been up to!

  1. I guess I understand his concern, but he could be more tactful. I don't blame her for her chilly tone.

    1. A little shock therapy at this point is all that's going to keep them alive. He's so right to be concerned . . .

  2. Isn't that always the way...the problem never sees that they are the problem! Hope she realizes it before they are both in trouble.

    1. She knows . . . she's just not ready to admit it. And that's the problem! Thanks, Dani!

  3. It doesn't seem that relations are very harmonious between them.

    1. Things are about to change . . . and that's what they're both afraid of.

  9. "My problems are not your concern", I don't know if he is being overly critical or not, but IF she has problems that could put others in jeopardy, they it most definitely is someone else's concern.
    Great fire between them.
