Natasha Blackthorne tagged me for Lucky 7 last week. Thanks, Natasha! The rules are an author excerpts 7 sentences of a current work, from page 77 (or 7), 7 lines down on the page. And then the author nominates and notifies7 other authors to participate. I've always been a huge fan of the number 7, and my lucky number is 7 (born 7-7 at 6:01 am).
So without further ado, here are 7 lines from page 77 of Blood Spirit doing double duty as Lucky 7 and WIP Wednesday.
A look of pain crossed her features and then she closed her eyes. Terek held his breath, preparing for Ilona's rejection. A strange sense of loss settled into his chest as he waited to hear her deny him again.
This would be the last refusal.
After tonight, she'd go to the house he kept in the hills. There she'd be looked after by other vampires of his, kept safe until he willingly granted her freedom. She'd want for nothing--he'd make sure of that--but she'd leave this house.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
