In this snippet, Iliana and Brandon are taking the night off and are engaging in a little bet. He says she couldn't be a man. She says she can convince everyone she is. She's just successfully kissed a barmaid in the local tavern. If you'd like to read the snippet on the bet, click HERE.
Iliana squeezed the woman’s hand as the crowd erupted into cheers. She released the raven-haired beauty to go back to her job and shot Brandon an “I-told-you-so” look.
He gaped at her a few moments, his expression a mixture of amazement and lust. She resisted the urge to roll her eyes. What is it with guys and girl-on-girl interactions?
“Close yer mouth, laddie, or the flies’ll get in.”
Brandon shut his mouth with a snap and cleared his throat. “I believe I owe you a new dagger, mate.”
I believe she's won this round. ;) 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: A Walk in the Sand:
The adventure of Ivory’s lifetime might just be the death of her…
When it comes to make believe, A-list actress Ivory is a professional. But when a desert hike takes her across a dimensional rift, her real-life self, Iliana Rory, must separate fantasy from reality. The man she swears is the costar in her next movie might share the same surname and appearance, but there are no sets in this Mr. Crowe’s world, no props, and no director to yell “cut” before blood is spilled.
With a fortune in stolen treasure and the forces of the Knalish army hot on their trail, Brandon Crowe and his partner, Ahmad, must cross a desert neither of them knows well. Mistaken for their guide, Iliana seizes any chance to stay ahead of the army and survive in this new world.
Adventure straight out of a Hollywood blockbuster might be on Iliana’s bucket-list, but she never dreamed there’d be the real possibility of death when the end credits roll. A Walk in the Sand is the first story in the four part serial recounting Iliana’s journey along the Ivory Road.
