Hello everyone. I hope you all are having a great Sunday. Thank you for stopping by my post on the Snippet Sunday & Writing Warriors’ #8Sunday blog hop. Stop by the Snippet Sunday Facebook page and/or the #8Sunday website to read excerpts from more authors.
Today, I’m sharing from my upcoming release, Outcast, Supernaturals Book 2, a paranormal romance. This snippet shows us a bit more about how the pack sees Leigh and how Ryan feels about the situation.
I had only caught a few glimpses of Leigh over the last year as Danielle’s and Dave’s family planned the wedding. 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 didn't. 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.
That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for stopping by. If you want to read more excerpts from other authors or if you want to join in the fun, stop by both blogs and peruse their sights.
Outcast, Supernaturals Book 2,
a Paranormal Romance
Leigh Alexander has lived every day of her life feeling like an outcast amongst her family and the small-minded people of Pine Hollow, a secretive community to which her parents belong. When Danielle, Leigh’s younger sister, asks Leigh to come home for her wedding, Leigh’s torn between wanting to be there for her sister and saving herself from people who’ve despised her all of her life.
Knowing she’ll regret her decision, Leigh gives into her sister and goes home for what she hopes is the last time. Leigh was prepared for people to ignore her, for them to shun her, for them to point out all the ways she didn’t belong all because she wasn’t a size perfect, but what she hadn’t been prepared for was falling for Ryan Hart, a man who she will soon learn knows all of the secrets her family and the town of Pine Hollow refuse to tell her.
Revealing the truth about Pine Hollow and the rest of the supernatural world might be forbidden, but to save Leigh’s life, Ryan will tell her everything about who she is, or more importantly who she isn’t, even if it will forever change her life and the lives of every person in Pine Hollow.
