Weekend Writing Warriors 8Snippet Sunday & Sexy Santa

Weekend Writing Warriors is a great way to find new authors, get snippets of your favorite authors' works, and get sneak peaks of upcoming books. Visit the link, and thanks for your support.

Here's another snippet from book 1 of Diamond series, Diamonds Aren't Forever. Here Peyton's thinking back to the first time she met Diamond Malloy. I chose these sentences because, I want readers to see there is more to Peyton than falling for two guys. She is a smart woman who lived through rough patch, and came out the better for it, (only in fiction can a criminal reform so easily, but that's where the characters took me).

     Peyton spun around, schooling her face into an unemotional mask. Standing at the opening of the alley was Malloy. His chocolate brown eyes bored into hers. She fought the urge to swallow.
     Sizing him up, she took in his mocha skin, shaved head, and diamond stud in his right ear. He looked to be about six feet tall and if it wasn't for his thick muscled chest and arms, Peyton would have called him lanky.

     Playing her act to the hilt, she shoved the wallet into Shelbie’s hands, forcing her friends behind her. That he hadn't laughed at the fact she was shorter than the other three was a testament to Peyton’s brashness. “Why would I want to do that?”

In the title you noticed mention of Sexy Santa. Book 4 in the Diamond Series is going to be a novella, Diamond and Amalia's story, and it slated as a Christmas story. It will be lighter, give a lot of the
early years together, and hope for the future. So, to usher you into this season, here's how I see Diamond playing Sexy Santa.



  1. Oh yum, Sexy Santa! Love your description of Diamond. Great snippet! :)

  2. I loved the description of him with chocolate brown eyes and mocha skin. Good job!

  3. You have described this scene so well that I can see them all standing in front of me - great job!
