But today I'm showcasing DUDE WITH A COOL CAR and it's out! In this snippet, we're in Karma's POV (all in first person, and yes, THE Karma) and she's just met a handsome guy with a cool car at the gas pumps.
Maybe it’s the divorce that’s pissing him off. Why did my inner voice sound so hopeful?
“I’m sorry to hear about the divorce.” And that was my cue to leave.
He waved it away as he cleaned the windshield. “It’s been a few years now. The car came to me at the right time and I figured it was a sign.”
“Yeah, since we share the same name and all.” He moved closer and held out his hand. “Cooper DeVille, at your service.”
I laughed, I couldn’t help it, but I took his hand.
Oh no, it’s not going to be fine.
Explosive energy zinged between us through the grip of our hands. I wanted him with an intensity I hadn’t felt in, well, ever. I raised my gaze to his and the energy switched on my Karmic Vision™ to show me his aura again. The streaks of anger remained, but they were threaded with lines of silver and brilliant ochre surprise.
In all my years of living on this plane of existence, I’d learned a thing or two about energy and the colors that when with it. The Goddess had Her plans for everyone and those of us in the plan rarely knew or understood it when it happened to us. But I’d studied enough to know that mates, long-term connections, showed up in metallic colors, particularly silver and gold, depending on the species.
This man, human despite the colors flowing through his aura like an oil slick, only flashed silver when I touched him. That meant he was my long-term connection. My mate.
Oh hell no!
I yanked my hand back and wiped it on my thigh.
“I gotta go.” I rolled the kickstand up and cranked the starter on my bike. “See you.”
Oops, there's a lot more going on than she thought. ;) There are several great authors on the Weekend Writer Warriors list, the Snippet Sunday Facebook group, and the Rainbow Snippets Facebook group. A few of my favorites are, P.T. Wyant, Karen Michelle Nutt, Veronica Scott, Jessica Subject, Kathy Griffith Karysa Faire, and Iris Blobel.
Here's the blurb for DUDE WITH A COOL CAR:
Bikers, Badge, and Backlog: Marshal DeVille always gets his man…and his karma.
Cooper DeVille, US Marshal
Being undercover has its perks. I get to do stuff the day-to-day me would never experience. Like infiltrating the Concrete Angels Motorcycle Club and meeting Karma, the gorgeous Enforcer of the MC. Being handcuffed to her bed is a dream, but that’s the problem with undercover work. Everything I’m doing here is only half true. The Concrete Angels—and Karma—are connected to Backlog, a shadow organization infiltrating law enforcement. The Fed undercover here before me was Backlog’s bitch, and now he’s dead. I have to determine which side of this fight the Concrete Angels are on… before Karma comes to bite me in ways I won’t enjoy.
Karma, Concrete Angels’ Enforcer
You bet your ass, I’m that karma, the one people pray never catches up to them. But my own karma has found me, seeing as the hunky P.I. who drove into the MC compound with his cool car is my Goddess-chosen true mate. But as my luck—and the Goddess’ sense of humor—would have it, Cooper’s an undercover US Marshal trying to ferret out our connection to a group called Backlog. Would’ve been nice to know before I took him to bed and discovered he’s the best damn submissive this Madam could want, because I don’t deal well with liars. And no one’s happy when Karma’s pissed. But Backlog has Cooper in its sights, and to survive… my mate might just have to die.
