Six Sentence Sunday #17 (6/?) ;)
I had originally intended to run a six-week excerpt from Until Darkness Comes, Book 1 of my Redemption series, but I’ve decided to continue it for a few more weeks. I hope you’re all enjoying it!
Background: Olivia has just figured out that the guy she’s falling for, isn’t really a guy at all–he’s her guardian angel…
“It’s fine.” Olivia tried to pull her hand back, but he wouldn’t let her go. She looked away, self-conscious under the scrutiny of those brilliant amethyst eyes. Before she could protest any further, he lowered his head and gently pressed his lips to one of the bruises on her wrist. Liquid heat slowly spread up her arm, it felt like the sun shone on her skin, but from the inside out. Radiant warmth bathed her in a soothing, tranquil bliss; she closed her eyes, drinking in his energy as it coursed through her veins, spreading like a wild-fire with every rapid beat of her heart.
