It’s Sneak Peek Sunday!
Today I’m offering another 6 paragraphs from my unusual, soon-to-be released New Adult love story – Enchanted Skye
Alexander MacCodrum belongs to a race of shape-shifting sea creatures living on Scotland’s Isle of Skye. When Jenna MacLeod unknowingly adds seven tears to the salt of the sea, she accidentally unleashes an ancient charm that catches the transformed Selkie unawares. Under this binding spell, Alex must win Jenna’s heart, or the pain of unrequited love will drive him to take his own life. Unfortunately for Alex, Jenna hasn’t come to Skye looking for love and it will take the force of a hurricane to bring them together. But worse, Jenna’s violent ex-boyfriend has found her at last and Carl has made it perfectly clear – if he can’t have her, no one can.
The image of Jenna lying back on his bed invitingly had burned into Alex’s mind. The change in her that morning was stark. He drew a deep breath and let it out slowly. That she ran to her room the instant her feet touched the ground spoke volumes. It was the scotch that made her want him last night.
Joining the others in the kitchen, he went straight to the coffee pot. The moment he saw Jenna at the table, that feeling from yesterday returned. She wouldn’t even look up from her cup to acknowledge she saw him there. How was it he felt so drawn to a woman he’d just met, a woman shunning him. Yes, the scotch was behind it. Her avoidance left him feeling very unsettled. That odd ache in his chest returned, and this time it came with a weird panicky edge.
As no formal introductions had been made, Bea said, “Jenna, I’d like to introduce you to my brothers. Lachlan the eldest, Alex, you’ve met, and Gavin.” To them she said, “This is Angus MacLeod’s grandniece, Jenna.”
“Pleased to meet ye, Jenna.” Lachlan held out a large warm hand. Gavin did the same. The brothers then tied to nudge one another out of the way. Unable to choose which man’s thrusting hand to shake first she laughed and shook both hands at once.
Alex smiled and held his out hand. “Alexander MacCodrum. I’m pleased to make your acquaintance, Jenna MacLeod.”
Jenna’s cheeks pinkened when she hesitated to take his hand. She met his eyes only briefly when she did. When he didn’t release her quickly, she pulled it away.
