Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows!

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.
(Read last week's post. Set-up) Greta runs away from her surprise engagement partthrough the woodsPax saves her from a shadow demon. Oh, and he's a unicorn! 
Pax tells her that the shadow has fed on her emotions. And that it's definitely someone she knows. And she must under no circumstance confront it because it will kill her. And don't get emotional about anything! >.< Now, her mother tells her Reed Clarkwell--Greta's shrink--suggested the marriage contract. She's gotta stay calm per Pax, and all she can do is think about it. Greta makes it to work and Pax shows up!

Grammatical liberties were taken :)

“Um, hey,” my foot slipped from the rung of the stool and I jerked to regain my balance.


“For you.” His lips twitched into a coy grin as he put the coffee on the counter in front of me.

When he smiled, it flooded my body with need. If only we could have more time together…to make up for what we had lost.


Omigoddess, I’m the one losing it.

Tune in next week for more angsty spooky goodness!

  1. Eep! Loving the tension/awkwardness between these two. So perfect. Great snippet! I can't wait to read more.

  2. Is she relying too much on what he's told her?

  3. So wait- Pax is hot, is a unicorn, AND brings her coffee? I really don't see how a girl can control anything- including emotions- around this guy. :-) Nice snippet!

  4. It's always hard to be smooth in front of your crush. But he doesn't seem to mind a little clumsiness.
