Morning and a good Sunday to you all! 🙂
This week I am posting six sentences from the opening scene of The Falcon and the Jackal – my paranormal novel published with Cobblestone Press, featuring Egyptian gods and pretty boys. 😉
Blurb: James had never been attracted to a man before. But Horus, the Egyptian god of the sun, is not just any man. Drop dead gorgeous, Horus is also the harbinger of bad news. He proclaims James to be Seth, his dark godly counterpart and ally, and warns that Osiris, god of the dead, is about to take over the world once more. Caught between a game of power and falling in love with Horus, James must remember his past and regain his powers, or he’ll lose everything—his future, his former lover, and his own life.
James is drawn to an ancient Egyptian amulet in display at the Museum. There one day he meets someone who seems just as interested in the amulet:
“A beautiful piece.”
James jumped at the whisper so close to his ear and turned, biting back a curse. The guy was about his own age, tall and lean, with dark hair and eyes. Black slacks and a black t-shirt hugged his frame. He looked as if he’d just stepped out of a fashion billboard.
“Yes, beautiful,” James said and swallowed hard, not thinking of the amulet anymore.
I hope to post more snippets from this story next week. I am now planning its sequel. 🙂
