An Astronaut, a Werewolf, and a Billionaire go into the Woods…

Welcome to the Cupid’s Choice blog hop!  We’re giving away a Nook, and I’m also giving away a signed copy of a book – winner’s choice.  Some of us used a scene generator to write a quick snippet of a story.  I ended up with three characters:  Astronaut, werewolf, and billionaire – and three adjectives to describe them – horny, supple, and sweaty.  My story takes place in a thick forest.  Click on the hot guy to go back to the hop.

HERE’s my snippet:

The astronaut was too intelligent to be so damn curvy.  Supple even.  Brilliance lit her sapphire eyes, while sin cascaded off her in strong enough waves to have the werewolf deep inside him howling.  Damn, he was horny.

Blaine forced down need and grabbed Callie’s arm, leading her onto a trail most people couldn’t find.  The thick forest surrounded them in an odd silence.  Yeah, the damn billionaire was near.  The guy could track anybody…and this time, he wanted the woman.  The astronaut who’d returned to earth with magical skills nobody could explain.

Well, most people couldn’t explain.  Blaine knew exactly what had happened…a werewolf could sense another were.  He needed to get the woman to safety before the full moon arrived.  Who knows how the virus ended up on Mars…but it had and she’d been infected.  “Good thing I need a mate,” he muttered, his groin tightening.

The billionaire rushed out from behind a wide pine tree, gun in hand.  He was sweaty and way too red in the face for good health.  “Please stop running.  I’ll find you anywhere.”

Callie took a step back.  “Why?  Why won’t you leave me alone?”

Insanity glowed in the man’s odd eyes.  “I know what you are…what happened to you.  The moon is coming, and you’ll be mine.”

At the claim, something calmed in Blaine.  Quick as a whisper, he struck out, grabbing the gun.  A swipe of his claws, and the nutjob stopped breathing.  Forever.

Callie gasped, stepping away. 

Blaine grabbed her arm, tugging her deeper into the forest, deeper into coolness.  The heat was boiling in the woman too fast.  The moon would rise in less than an hour, and then it’d be too late to stop.  Hell, it was already too late.  He could only hope to help her through the change.

She yanked away, leaning against a tree, her face flushed.  “I’m feeling odd.”  Her gaze raked down his chest, and a feminine growl rumbled from her sexy lips.  “Very odd.”

He flashed his canines, biting back a laugh at the alarm in her pretty eyes.  “Just wait.”

So…thanks for reading my snippet.  Do you have any plans for Valentine’s day?  How about for the weekend?  Do you think there’s life on Mars?   🙂  Remember to click on the guy angel above to return to the blog hop.

    Absolutely love the snippet! Only plans I have are baking cookies for the kiddo’s class and hopefully taking lunch to the hubby at work (though this is the weekend before since I have to work on v day too!). Not very exciting but you never know what life would throw at you. Hope you and everyone else has a very delectable day though!

    love it!!! Although I’m married, I celebrate all my friends on Valentines day because I couldn’t make it through without them.
    Cheers all!!

  4. desiree says:

    My husband has to work on tuesday so we are celebrating on monday while the kids are at school. we are relaxing, going out for lunch and enjoying some chocolate covered strawberries.

  5. Well Valentines day is not exactly my favorite. I am normally either not with anyone at the time, or with one that celebrate it. I have never had a man to give me anything for Valentine day or even taken me out to dinner. However I do wish all of you a very Happy Valentines Day and hope that you have a very romantic and memorable time.

    That was a fun little snippet, Rebecca. We will go out to dinner on Monday night to beat the crowds, then my dh usually brings home a bouquet of flowers, and a mocha frappacino for my treat, and we watch a movie together that night.

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your hubby.

    Nothing big planned for Valentine’s Day itself. But, my husband is taking me on a 7-day cruise. We leave the 16th for Miami. I will be glad to get out of gloomy Illinois and catching up on all my reading while sunbathing on the cruise deck!

  8. Nina Pierce says:

    LOL! Yes, there’s life on Mars and no, no plans for Valentine’s Day. Very nice snippet.

  9. Awesome. Love the words you got from the generator 🙂

  10. Great snippet, Rebecca. No plans for Valentines Day except for chocolate. And (since we’re talking about chocolate) there must be life on Mars—or where did the Mars Bar come from?

    I have been waiting to get to your hop site… I just love your books! Happy Valentines Day!

  22. I love that you made the woman the astronaut and the billionaire the bad guy! 🙂

    My hubbie is in Europe on business over Valentine’s Day, so it will just be me and the dog. I’m okay with that though. The dog is a good listener and doesn’t mind me wanting to spend the whole evening watching Rom Com movies.

  23. Shadow says:

    No plans for me. Ill be home, cuddled up with a good book. 😉 Thanks for sharing! Happy Valentines!

    I liked your snippet. I could read more. No plans this weekend I’m off so I’m going to have some much needed down time. We don’t really do anything for Valentine’s Day. I’m not sure about Mars, maybe you can write a good story and make me believe. LOL

    I don’t have any plans for the weekend, no plans for Valentine’s Day and I do believe there might be some kind of life on Mars. I’m so boring. LOL!! But I read erotic romances so I have all I need.
