Thursday Thirteen ~ Ready to Unleash Your Inner Being

Kandy Apple and Her Hellhounds is my current WIP. I think I’m on the home stretch of finishing, polishing, then submitting. I hope. Anyway, here are the first thirteen chapter titles, and the opening sentence, or sentences.

Chapter One ~ Zolivar and Zindale

“Ready to unleash your inner being?” Zol asked his twin.


Chapter Two ~ Kandace Sylvia Winter

Kandace halted part way up the long curving staircase. “Light ball,” she whispered.


Chapter Three ~ Ménage à Trois Red

Zin watched the witch slide down the grand staircase’s bannister.


Chapter Four ~ Alien Tuxedo Twins

Kandace sipped on her ice-whipped drink.


Chapter Five ~ “Where is this Enduoir Prime?”

“It will be my distinct pleasure.”
Zol couldn’t recall ever desiring the touch of a woman’s hand more, certainly not with this savage intensity.


Chapter Six ~ Spellbound Hounds

Zin tasted the candy apple drink he’d purchased for himself out of rabid curiosity. Waiting on the edge of the ballroom floor, he watched his twin masterfully handle their lovely Kandy Apple.


Chapter Seven ~ Share and Share Alike

Kandace tipped up her fresh drink, taking an idle sip. Maintaining her cool during a security hunt had become close to second nature -- close, but not complete.


Chapter Eight ~ A Pair of Very Bad Bones

A grin tugged at one corner of Zol’s mouth as he raised his gaze to Zin.
“We are bad hellhounds,” he growled in a whisper.


Chapter Nine ~ Daughter of Affrony

As they slow danced, Zin splayed his hand on Kandace’s silken back. Caressing up her small lovely neck, he tangled his fingers in the wild airy feel of her hair.


Chapter Ten ~ Bubbling Toil and Trouble

Kandace figured if her last words had been pebbles, they would have struck the main security guy square in the back, he left so fast.


Chapter Eleven ~ Hellhounds, the Justice League

“How about Paris, darling? Zin and I are able to open a time slip portal there.”


Chapter Twelve ~ Hellhounds Ready for Seduction

“Kandace.” Zin palmed her shoulders from behind. “Our beast natures are savage for you.”

Chapter Thirteen ~ So, What Do Hellhounds Eat?

“Ladies first,” Zol crooned in his best Cary Grant.
He and Zin watched their witch delicately stab a slice of creamy potato with her fork. A moment after she slipped it between her lips, she moaned with appreciation, her eyelids falling shut as she savored.
Unable to take their eyes off her for several instants, Zol finally raised his own fork, breaking the femme fatale spell she’d cast over them.


Happy Romancing in 2011

What a neato way of excerpting a book! It certainly whets the appetite. :) Also, I noticed a fair amount of boozing going on. Sounds like my kind of book.

Mary Quast said...

Ooo... I'm loving the one liners! Sexy!

Savanna Kougar said...

Vivien, thanks. Yes, Zin and Zol do enjoy their martinis and other alcoholic beverages, including a unique Scotch made from waters that flow over volcanic rock.

Savanna Kougar said...

Mary, Zin and Zol crack me up with their one liners, sometimes.

Kayelle Allen said...

I cracked up at the relationship between Ch 13's title and the first two words.

Great way to showcase a book!

Savanna Kougar said...

Oh, Kayelle, you got me. I was so into their scene when I wrote it, I didn't even catch that... and, yes, of course, they carnally devour their witch in the most passionate ways.

Pearl said...

Neat way to snapshot your way thru a book.

Alice Audrey said...

I could so easily see myself sliding down a banister.

Savanna Kougar said...

Hi, Pearl, I hadn't thought of it like that. Thanks.

Savanna Kougar said...

Alice... lol... Zin and Zol certainly enjoyed their full view of her black pantyhose covered assets.

Wonderfully presented! I'm inspired to read and inspired to promo. And Cary Grant? ~dies a little~ I adore his acting.

Savanna Kougar said...

Hi Darla, Cary Grant is incomparable in his own unique sophisticated way.
