Weekend Writing Warriors



Time for the Weekend Writing Warriors!



For the next couple months, I'm highlighting sentences from my Boys of the Zodiac novel, the m/m action/adventure erotic romance, Aries: Riddle Me Wicked. Last week, Lucas told Ian he was picked because of his language skills, while Lucas can find order in chaos, meaning he sees patterns when things are all jumbled up. I'm jumping ahead some again, to a point a couple days later where Sultis has tracked them down in San Francisco. Lucas ran inside to retrieve their research while Ian waited in the car to drive them away from there, and he's now leapt into the front seat and ordered to Ian to go...

...He had to lean forward to make room for the bag, and Ian was taking him at his order, hitting the accelerator so hard the car lurched. Lucas slammed back. His spine jarred, and his teeth rattled, but the door was closed, and Ian had both hands tight on the wheel.

He spun tight around the corner of the hotel. A Jeep Laredo reversed out of a spot, forcing Ian to cut into a row farther away from the lot exit. Lucas dropped the bag to his feet, then reached around for his seat belt. When he looked forward again, he spotted one of Sultis’s men coming out of the lobby doors.

“Bugger,” Ian said under his breath.

Ooh! Interesting 8! Thanks for sharing. :)

I'm absolutely loving the action adventure part of this. So many M/M novels sacrifice well-crafted plots for steamy scenes, but this one hasn't!

Exciting driving scene. I always have trouble with those. Nice tension too- they're in a heap a trouble!
