Every cell in him hummed to life.-- #WeekendWritingWarriors and #SexySnippets from my current WIP #vampires #amwriting #romance

Happy Sunday, lovelies!

Last week I gave you a glimpse of Christopher and today, I'm giving you another look a little further in the manuscript. This is the first time he "sees" the heroine...

Bear in mind that A LOT of creative editing has taken place to keep to the guidelines. Nevertheless, enjoy!

Christopher took in a deep breath and froze as every cell in him hummed to life: human.

The sweet scent of blood seeped into him. His eyes narrowed and his stomach growled. How long had it been since he’d sunk his fangs into a living being? In here, he didn’t need to hunt as his boss provided all the nourishment he needed, most of it animal. It was never the same but it kept him going. 

But this. 

He inhaled sharply again, realizing how he’d missed it. The delicious fragrance, coppery, yet sweet, and particular to each person. She smelled like vanilla and cinnamon.

  1. Well, I'm not sure what to say, except that if he dines on the heroine you have a short story, not a novel. ;-)

  2. Ed is correct. LOL. You make her sound so edible.

  3. Ooohh, you can't beat that first moment, can you? Fab snippet!

  4. Rich and sensual scene. LOVE the description of what he's feeling, Elyzabeth!

  5. Well his emotions sure come through clearly in the snippet! Can't wait to see what happens next...

  6. Where is "in here", I wonder? Love how much you portray just through the sense of smell and his visceral reaction. Nicely done.

  7. I'm not a vampire, but even I'm hungry for her right now haha
