In this snippet, Iliana is filming a scene with another actress, named "Merrie" and Taggart. They're pretending to warm him up after being out in the cold.
Iliana snorted and shook her head. “You’ve been in the city too long, Merrie. Forgotten your roots.” She pulled back the covers and looked Taggart’s mostly naked body over carefully.
Not as scarred as Brandon’s, Taggart’s torso above his boxer shorts still held tone and muscle strength. A light dusting of hair trailed from his pecs down his belly and disappeared beneath his shorts. While they shared a similar style and structure, Brandon’s physique attracted her more than Taggart’s.
She must have stared a beat too long because Taggart opened his eyes. “Problem, ladies?”
“Sorry.” Iliana dropped the covers over him again and reached for her clothes.
“Everything look okay?” Taggart’s sarcastic question followed her as she got dressed.
“Yeah. Good.” She didn’t tell him he needed more scars.
Oops, busted! ;) 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, Jeff Tsuruoka, Gem Sivad, Goran Zidar, Veronica Scott, and Sarah Wesson. Here's the blurb for The Ivory Road: Outback Dreams:
Returning to reality isn’t everything Iliana Rory hoped…
As she resumes her A-list actress life, Iliana tells herself she’s home, but the adventure she experienced beyond a dimensional rift comes back to her in daily reminders. A nasty arm wound is bad enough. A sexy costar who happens to be a dead ringer for the man who stole a desert treasure and a piece of her heart is more than any woman deserves to suffer.
Any thoughts that her memories might be the result of fever dreams vanish when her wound reopens while filming a rescue scene. Once her horse starts talking to her, Iliana can’t deny the adventure—and Brandon Crowe—were real. Which means just maybe the newfound love in her heart is real, too. But has Brandon given up on her?
To get back to Brandon, all she has to do is finish filming, evade the paparazzi, survive the social media headlines, and stave off the amorous advances of her cocky costar. After surviving the Knalish army, handling Hollywood is a walk in the outback. Outback Dreams is the second story in the four part serial recounting Iliana’s journey along the Ivory Road.
