Here we go! My third installment of SFR Brigade Presents with another snippet from my completed SFR novel out on submission to an agent. Back cover blurb here, first snippet here, second here. As promised, from Fae's POV.
Fae crept down the back stairs to avoid being noticed by anyone and slipped into the slaves’ quarters. Most everyone was upstairs, working on the meal, preparing the dining room. She knocked on the door to the only empty room.“Come in.” He sounded reluctant.She pushed the door open in time to see his bare back. The green markings of private ownership rippled across his upper back and arms as he lifted his arms and pulled a new shirt over his head. His blond hair looked damp. “I forgot to ask your name.”He turned and looked at her, brows a V above his eyes. Speaking of his eyes, they winked and glistened like real sapphires.“No one has asked you your name? They’ve just called you seventy-one?”He nodded. “My name is A'yen.”“It’s nice to meet you, A'yen. I’m Farran, and don’t you dare call me mistress. Makes me feel old.”The intense blue eyes locked on her face. “Then what shall I call you?”“I’ll have to think about it.”
Next week will be another from Fae, then I may show some of the current WIP, Worth Fighting For. Same universe, but set eight years before My Name Is A'yen. Don't forget to check out the other snippets.
