#8Sunday #SexySnippets #WeekendWritingWarriors: Beauty in the Beast #fantasy #power

Happy Sunday lovelies!

Hope you're all doing well. I have to go into work today for a meeting. Suffice to say, I'm not excited about the prospect. Anyhow, on to today's snippet!

In last week's snippet Morgana and Christopher were discussing the meaning of power. I'm continuing from there.

“Is is it ethical to lie to others and trick them to gain something from them, Mr. Bexley?”
Christopher laughed. “Ethics, Miss Wiles? Have you noticed the world we live in? Ethics do not exist. Since the world was created, men have battled, killed, maimed, coerced, and tricked, to obtain their goals, be it women, riches, or power. I am not the first or the last, and I can assure you, I am not the worst you will find.”
“Yes, men have battled, tricked, killed, maimed, coerced, and more, but they have also loved, shared, forgiven, cherished, and more, for honor.”
“And glory."
“No, and good.”

Beauty in the Beast
Light will become shadow. Love will become hate. Good will become evil. The Darkness is here. There will be no escape.
Morgana Wiles has spent her life, alongside her mother, fighting against the arrival of the creature known as The Darkness. Unfortunately, neither of them were able to stop him and now he's here, ready to destroy all that is good in the world. Morgana must face him, but now that the time has come, she finds that things are not as simple. Her mother is gone, self-doubt is creeping in, and her visions are unclear. To make matters worse, a man with evil intent has entered her life and is bent on complicating her mission. Will she be able to resist him in time to fight The Darkness or will she succumb and become that which she despises?
Christopher Bexley is no gentleman. He enjoys trickery, deceit, mischief and above all seduction. Sexual intercourse is the greatest source of power there is or at least there was, until he heard about the Gem. Now that he has discovered there's a stone that can make him the most powerful magic user of all time, he must have it. The only problem is that the only other person that might know where it is, is a stickler for rules and being good. Morgana is too innocent for his liking, and there's only one thing he can do to change that: corrupt her.


  1. I love the final line - Morgana's comment is a crushing statement, in two words pointing out everything wrong with Christopher's twisted values.

  2. I also LOVE her response to his cynicism. Great snippet!

  3. Great snippet, I loved this conversation, and how it turned around on him. :D

  4. This conversation sounds like the crux of their relationship, maybe of the story itself.

  5. I do love the way she bandies with him here. You tell him, girl!

  6. Of all the snippets you've ever shared, Elyzabeth, this is my favorite! “Yes, men have battled, tricked, killed, maimed, coerced, and more, but they have also loved, shared, forgiven, cherished, and more, for honor.” SO well put... :-)

  7. I love the way she shows him an alternative. Great snippet.


I adore comments! Don't be shy and tell me your thoughts.
