This week I'm offering snippets from CHRISTMAS I.C.E. MAGIC, a novella associated with the Cloudburst, Colorado series. It's a paranormal holiday romance and it's re-release is available now. Woohoo! Zach Snow is getting ready for work, but his buddy is trying to get him to come out to play.
“You should totally come out with us tonight, man. It’s going to be epic.”
Zachary Snow glanced over at his best buddy Sleet and chuckled. Though the Ice Demon held a pretty decent human disguise in an army surplus sweater and ski pants, he left wet footprints on the resort’s carpets wherever he stepped. He looked like a slightly bedraggled snowboarder after a wild run.
“I can’t tonight. I’m on call for Search and Rescue.” Zach checked to make sure his cell phone had a full charge before he waved to the reception desk manager and headed toward the winter equipment garage.
“Aw, come on. It’s the height of winter and our best storm yet, Snow. Everyone’s gonna be there and we’re bringing the thunder.” Sleet followed after him, grinning wide enough to show off his extra long canines. Fortunately, no humans passed by them as Sleet elbowed him. “Greta Graupel will be there.”
Zach resisted the urge to roll his eyes. He and Greta had a history of quick flings, but they’d pretty much called it quits when he told her he wouldn’t give up his job at the Paradise Lodge. She didn’t understand what he saw in humans and he didn’t see any point in trying to explain.
“You should ask her out some time, Sleet. She’s got a mean backhand in Snowball Tennis.”
Someone's ready to party for sure. ;) There are several great authors on the Weekend Writer Warriors list and in the Snippet Sunday Facebook group. A few of my favorites are Charley Descoteaux, Karen Michelle Nutt, Veronica Scott, Gem Sivad, Jessica Subject, and Iris Blobel. Here's the blurb:
For Lily Sinclair, Christmas means sorrow and loss since the death of her twin brother. When her friends want to celebrate at the Paradise Lodge on Mt. Rainier, Lily figures she’ll take the chance to see her brother one more time before ending her life.
As an Ice Demon, Zachary Snow is used to rescuing people in winter, but he’d never rescued anyone like Lily. She fights his efforts, claiming the magic has left the world and she has no more adventures left. But to Zach, she embodies everything magical and more.
Zach must convince Lily the magic she wants is in life itself.
This title was previously published in the Happy Holidays from the Crescent Moon Lodge anthology. It has been re-edited.
