Weekend Writing Warriors: The demon will stop at nothing... RUNNING FROM SHADOWS #8Sunday #Unicorns

Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows, currently being read by a lovely agent!! Squee!! 

Follow Greta Shore (a 17-year-old, black-haired wiccan beauty) and Paxton "Pax" Craig (an 18-year-old, blond-haired college student with a dark secret) as they discover the fate of their forbidden love.
Set-up (last week)... Greta runs away from her surprise engagement partthrough the woodsPax saves her from a shadow demon. Oh, and he's a unicorn! 
Back at Pax's cabin, Greta and Pax talk. He tells her that he's not immortal but his blood can be...

“Geez…Sorry I asked.” I huffed and set my coffee on the table with a thud.

Silence stretched between us for a long moment then he reached over and took my hand in his. He caressed my knuckles as he spoke. “I’m sorry; I wish I could tell you more. But I can’t. The only thing you need to know is that the demon will stop at nothing to have you. And as your guardian, I will do everything I can to protect you.”

Tune in next week to find out why Greta needs protecting!

  1. Really nice snippet, makes we wonder if it turns into a mystery love story.
    Oh, and good luck with the book! :)

  2. Great eight! I love how we now see him as the hero in hero mode where he's going to protect her!

  3. Great snippet! I think she's going to have to find out what he's keeping from her some time...

  4. Great snippet. What is he hiding? Why does the demon want her? What is her fiancee going to say about all this? Lots of questions.

    (No snippet for me this week. I'm just taking a reading break.)

    1. lol I like questions :D Enjoy the reading break! I need those sometimes too.

  5. I'm with her, I'd want to know more too. Knowledge is power! Excellent excerpt!

  6. I also want to know just what she needs protecting from, and love that he's volunteering himself as her protector.

  7. I'll just agree to agree with all the posts above me : ) Nice eight!

  8. He's her guardian, huh? Guess that means their run-in wasn't a coincidence--and there's something special about her that she doesn't know.
