Thank you for stopping by last week and all the congratulations on my new contract. *hugs and smiles* Also thank you for the feedback on the box with the blurb. I need to test the color scheme but meanwhile, I've made sure to include both versions on my website.
On to today's snippet.
Let's recap: Kaila is in front of Sloth's (a Sin lord) door because she needs to access into his lair to save her sister. She was about to go in when she was interrupted by Seamus, a Guardian. They've known each other for years and he calls her babe even though she hates it. Seamus doesn't want Kaila to enter the Sin's nest and is physically holding her down.
In the last line from last week Kaila sent Seamus to hell. We begin with his reaction.

"Go on and try getting in. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.”
“I’m not going to stop you,” Seamus said.
He stepped aside and crossed his muscled arms across his chest. Kaila tore her eyes away and focused her attention back on the door she reached out and placed her palm on the worn wood. Pain shot up her arm and she cried out snatching her hand back. Tears filled her eyes as she cradled her hand. The pain was so intense that she barely registered Seamus’s arms around her until the touch of his lips on her forehead mingled with sweet words sent her mind reeling.
“Get off,” she yelled.

***Looking for Beta Readers: I'm hoping to finish Kaila and Seamus' story toward the end of September, beginning of October and could use one or two more beta readers. If anyone is interested, let me know! Thank you!
