No, please --#weekendwritingwarriors #sexysnippets from my WIP Alpha Protectors 3 #paranormal #romance

Happy Sunday, lovelies! 
Apologies because last week I didn't have a chance to visit all of your wonderful posts. I-m going to aim to do better this week! 
In today's snippet, I'm going to leave you with the intrigue about what the demon was laughing about and I'm going to jump a few paragraphs into the story. To give you a bit of context, Max and his colleagues are still immersed in Lust's world and Max has been told to wait outside because he's seen something traumatic.
 
  Enjoy!
XOXO,
Elyzabeth

Turning his back on the commotion, he walked a few feet down the hall and leaned against the wall. Thankful for the cool stone against his blazing flesh, he shut his eyes and focused on his breathing. Little by little, the sounds around him evaporated. The warrior cries of his brothers in arms dimmed. The screeches of the Inferum and the human’s whose dreams had become nightmares, quieted. All of it became replaced by the soothing swoosh of his lungs filling with oxygen, the steady rhythm of his pulse and the pleasant chime of female laughter.
Max’s eyes snapped open and he immediately moved into a fighter’s stance, glancing left and right he searched for the source of the sound. The flames on the brackets flickered and danced with the shadows but not a soul was in sight. Goosebumps rose on his flesh.
“No, please.”

Reine's Salvation

Alpha Protectors, 1

He’s the kind of man her mother warned her to steer clear from...

Mystique is happy with her current life, but for years she's struggled on a path of self-destruction. She knows she shouldn't get involved with the brooding hunk at the bar, but how can she stay away when his sorrowful gaze is so compelling?


Reine has lost everything: his wife, his friends, his ability to fight, and his identity as an Alpha Protector. There's nothing left for him except a world of anger and bitterness. At least, that’s what he believes until he meets an intrepid waitress. 



The attraction between them is immediate, but while Reine can’t let go of his past, Mystique is not willing to return to hers. With darkness constantly closing in, will they find a way to be together? Or, will Reine's behavior destroy their future?

Seamus's Mate
Alpha Protectors, 2

Kaila is His. His Mate. Forever. 

When Seamus discovers Kaila is in danger he sets out to save her. He couldn’t care less that she doesn’t want him there. His objective in life is to love and protect her. Besides, she might refuse to be with him, but her body knows better. With both their lives on the line, she can’t say no to his aid, can she? 


For years, she has ignored her feelings. 

Kaila’s mission was supposed to be easy: enter the demon’s lair and save her sister. Then, he came along. For close to twenty years she has been fighting against the mating pull. She has avoided Seamus at all costs, but now they’re both trapped in hell and she has nowhere to run, except, maybe, into his arms.

  1. Sounds like he's going to be forced from one horrible situation to another with no chance to recover. You write his emotions well! 😄

  4. Ack! You can't leave us off there! :-)

  5. I'm going to assume that whoever just spoke to him isn't refusing a refill of a coffee cup. The situation's more serious than that, right?

  6. Uh oh, probably not a good thing for him to disengage like that and lose his focus. I have a feeling he's off to another kind of battle now. Intriguing snippet for sure!

  7. I wonder who it was that he heard laughing.

  8. In a place like this, I think I'd be a bit unsettled by the "pleasant sound of female laughter" too.

  9. I'm definitely intrigued. Who is laughing and why?
