Sunday Excerpt — March 23, 2014

More from Sanguine, a science fiction novel (still in progress) with elements of semi-paranormal M/M romance.

(I am done with beta readers, and Sanguine is in next-to-final-edit stage, so this is still a work in progress and the following lines may or may not have been hacked and recombined and creatively punctuated to fit into 10 sentences.)

Picking up from last week’s snippet:

Kaen shuddered into the kiss and held him tightly.  “How do we work through this, Gregor?   I can’t keep going like this.  I want you and need you and I am so afraid that I am going to kill you…”

“You haven’t yet,” Gregor said, smiling. “It will calm, Master. Once you are used to the fact that you have me, it will calm.  Right now it is too new, too exciting, too intoxicating…”

Gregor’s words wrapped around him like a reassuring blanket.  “How is it,” he murmured, “that you know so much when you are so young?”

    Is he young? He seems ageless in his knowledge.

    I’m enjoying this story, PT. Looking forward to it. Glad it’s progressing toward completion.

  3. Sometimes young people are wiser than they appear. That was a fun read, good snippet and I hope you’ve gotten that caffeine jolt in you.

  4. an intoxicating passion that could lead to murder… it doesn’t get any more intriguing than that! well done!! 🙂

  5. Karen Michelle Nutt

    Wise beyond his years. Intriguing snippet.

  6. Nice internal struggle there. 🙂

    Shuttered into the kiss…love it!!

  8. I enjoyed reading this–I didn’t realize Gregor was so young–he seems much more mature. I’m bad at guessing people’s ages–even fictional people.

    You know I was wondering as I read that, how is he so wise for so young, unless he isn’t really young at all. Quite the dangerous relationship. Good snippet!
    The Murders of Polly Frisch

  10. He seems wise beyond his years, but then, he’s probably been steeped in history and lore since birth, right? The family would want him to be prepared.

    (unless he’s a trap—he’s not a trap, is he?)

      Sarah get a prize! He has most definitely been steeped in history and lore since birth.

      And as for him being a trap… Oh, Kaen is trapped all right!

  11. Maybe it’s just me, but I thought this snippet was very hot. Barely restrained passion… at least that’s what it felt like.

  12. Still wondering who’s snaring whom.
