And it’s the final Saturday Snippet with my awesome group of ladies. I’ll probably continue to randomly post them when I remember. It’s an easy way to fill a post, but the blog-hopping thing is coming to a close. Make sure to check out the other ladies participating if you can.

His stony face didn’t change. At all. He jerked a shoulder in a shrug. “It’s not like it’s any of my business, right?”
“No.” Why did it seem like the bite marks on my neck, my wrist, were burning? I resisted, just barely, the urge to reach up and rub the one on my neck. Damon’s eyes all but burned into mine and I think we both knew we weren’t being entirely truthful. I couldn’t get involved with another man…not when I was still hung on him. It just wasn’t in me. And the bastard knew it.

I glared at him. “Just shelve it, okay?”
He didn’t even move and the air, the space between us had shrunk down to nothing.
From Broken Blade…due out in January.
Other ladies to check out.
And my friends, it’s been fun.
