Thirteen Lines from Wildish Things

13 random lines from my upcoming novella, Wildish Things:

1. Satisfied that events would now unfold as they should, the Hag spread her bare arms and legs wide to the sun. And awaited her pleasure.

2. “Indeed. Kellan O’Neill at your service for the next t’ree weeks, miss. You can be callin' me Kel, if you like.”

3. Grow some balls, woman.

4. Patrick: “Which brother, Declan? Tell me it wasn’t Kel.”

5. Declan: “Okay, I’ll tell you it wasn’t Kel, if that’s what you want to hear.”

6. Patrick: "Shit."

7. Where had she been living that she’d willingly walk off with a stranger without demanding so much as an ID card? In a cave?

8. “She has no clothes,” murmured Fionna.

9. "If the only reason you’re carrying on with this is to pull something over on Declan, back out now."

10. She wondered if she might be able to quietly enjoy an orgasm without him noticing.

11. “Take a breath.”

12. “You feckin’ owe me for this one.”

13. "And that makes her a little wild. Unpredictable, because no one knows what will displease her."

14. Long have I waited for such a man to lie on my belly.

Wildish Things, Nov. 1 (eBook and the trade paperback anthology Love & Lore) from Samhain Publishing Ltd.
