Welcome back to Sexy Snippets hosted by The Nuthouse Scribblers. This week I'm sharing more from my soon to be published paranormal romance, Outcast, which I'm currently editing. Enjoy.
He didn’t say anything until he reached her. Heart still pounding, she watched him walk around her slowly, his chest brushing her shoulders—skin on skin. Warm tingles swarmed her body again. Head raised, he sniffed the air around her and she heard something that sounded like a grunt. Curious, she turned to face him. Expectation made her body quiver, her nerve endings on alert waiting for his touch as she held her breath. She wasn’t sure how much longer she could stand upright.
Here's the blurb:
Outcast (Sacred Amulet, Part One)
Ugo’ji is an outcast, an untouchable. She lives on the fringe of society as the lowest of the low, a living sacrifice to the gods. The only person she interacts with is her aged grandmother Nne who nurtures her powerful gift of healing. Until the day she meets Ebube a strange warrior to their lands. He ignites a yearning within her she's unable to ignore.
Ebube is drawn to the young maiden with the emerald green eyes who possesses the body of a goddess and the healing touch of an angel. But he is forbidden from mating with a human and the consequence is the wrath of the gods.
Moreover he is on a mission. If he fails, the gates of hell will be opened and the earth plunged into darkness. He cannot stay and she cannot go with him.
