This week I’m continuing from my upcoming release, Outcast, Supernaturals Book 2, a paranormal romance. I’ve finished my editor’s first round of edits and have sent the novel back to her. I’m hoping to star working on a synopsis soon. I’ll also be contacting my cover artist soon to start the cover for this novel.
The following is continuation from last week’s post.
I had only caught a few glimpses of Leigh over the last year as Danielle’s and Dave’s family planned the shindig. For reasons that pissed me off, a fact I had voiced many times to Dave but to no one else, Dave’s family had insisted that Leigh not be a part of planning things. The pack Council had insisted that she not be a part of the wedding at all. Danielle fluctuated between begging them to let her come and threatening to leave the pack if they. Her persistence made them come to a compromise to allow her to come to the actual event as long as she stayed in the shadows. Up until then, her family had had to make excuses and be downright mean to their eldest daughter to keep her out of the preparations and town as much as possible.
I could tell that this had hurt Leigh but, at the same time, relieved her. She seemed to want to be on the outside of things, and I had an idea why, and that just pissed me off more. She didn’t see herself worthy or beautiful enough to stand up in front of the chapel and the guests with her sister and all of the rest of the women from the pack. This view of herself came from the snide comments pack members have made in her vicinity over the years.
Shapeshifter genetics and metabolisms ensure that most shapeshifters keep a fairly trim and muscular figure. That doesn’t, however, mean that every one of our kind is physically beautiful or good-looking, and in a large number of them, their personalities make them hideous.
Everything about Leigh was beautiful. Anyone who could smile through all of what she has had to deal with has to have a strong soul. Anyone who could still love their family after all said family has put her through has to have a beautiful heart. Her physical appearance was stunning as well. She had the most luscious breasts, soft oval face, and sexy curves. The thought of her full body brought a low growl to my throat.
Thinking of her voluptuous body shifted my emotions, but not in the right direction. I was no longer nervous about the wedding or of seeing her, but greedy to have her. If I hadn’t been needed there, I would have sought her out, offered to escort to the chapel or to my room. I held myself back, though, knowing that that simple act would draw unwanted attention to her and cause problems for her and her family. Besides, by that time she would have already been heading to the chapel if she wanted to see her sister get married.
That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed it.
