Weekend Writing Warriors from A Tempest of Passion #shifters #regencyromance

Happy Sunday, everyone!

I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy.

In case anyone is interested, I've created a Facebook group. You can find the link to join at the bottom of the post.

On to today's snippet! Since everyone seemed to enjoy last week's snippet from A Tempest of Passion, I'm continuing more or less from where we left off. Her servant has left her alone with Mr. Dalton and they're holding a bit of a staring contest...


 Forgive the run-ons. Changes have been made to adapt to WeWriWa guidelines.

He was watching her, like a dog deciding what end of the bone to chew on first. Irked, she stared back. William Dalton’s features had no finesse, to be honest, he reminded her of a wild dog. His hair was unruly and too long, the lines of his face were angular and rough. His lips were too wide, his nose too narrow and his left cheek disfigured by an ugly pink scar extending from below his eye to the edge of his mouth. Then there was the matter of his eyes. Dark and unreadable, they had an air about them that spoke of a man with little joy in his life. Emily shuddered. It mattered little to her that this was the man that had “saved” her last night. It was time for him to leave.

A Tempest of Passion

Emily Bunsbury is most definitely not a fainter. She prefers to leave that sort of shenanigans to young debutants and to those desperate to land a husband. She is neither.

Except last night she passed out and was rescued by none other than the town’s most eligible bachelor: William Dalton. Of course, she wants nothing to do with him, but her heart and body don’t seem to be in agreement…
Banished from his pack for a crime he did not commit, William Dalton does not have the desire or the time to court women, yet, when he meets Emily Bunsbury he is incapable of staying away. Certain that it is nothing more than a passing fancy and not the mating pull, he pursues her.
However, as the unknown threat that expelled him from his pack strikes again, William realizes that Emily means much more and he must keep her safe. Now, if only she’d agree to his terms…
As danger grows with each passing day, will the couple learn to trust each other or will their love be nothing more than a temporary tempest of passion?

  1. I like that she doesn't back down from him.

  2. He must have some redeeming virtues LOL! Very descriptive snippet - I could really visualize him.

  3. Well done! Great use of description that wasn't "telling". He was completely shown. Very edgy, too.

  4. The way he's described from her POV makes it abundantly clear why she wants to be rid of him.

  5. Great description. I'm with Veronica. I mean...he saved her, right? I wonder if her description of him will change somewhere in the future?

  6. Great description! I hope she finds something redeemable about him, god she sounded harsh. But you know what, I liked her harshness.

  7. How do you get a guy to leave when he isn't ready? She's got a problem. Good description of him.


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