Sneak Peek and a Snog #SneakPeekSunday

How can we not love Sunday? A sneak peek and a snog!

This week's offering is from my work in progress - Breathe You In - a million thanks to Posh Gosh for creating the perfect cover. The Peacock feather, shaped like a heart, sums up the story, but probably not in the way you think. Peacocks have many beliefs attached to them, including immortality and phoenix-rising-from-the-flames qualities. This little snippet is taken whilst the hero, Ruben and his first love interest in a long time, Katie, are on a summer's evening picnic in central England. But all is not as it seems, Katie, who is trying to put her life back together after tragedy, has more to do with Ruben's return from hell than he knows...

My decision had been painful, torturous, but it had been the only thing that made sense.
He caught my escaped tear with the pad of his thumb. “Don’t cry, Katie.”
“I’m sorry, I’m just happy for you that it's over. You’ve been through hell. And I know what a horrible place that is.”
“Right now it feels like I’m in Heaven.” He smiled. “I can almost hear harps.”
A slightly hysterical little giggle burst from me and then I did what I’d been wanting to do all evening. I slipped my fingers into his soft hair, cradled his skull and pressed my lips to his.

Have a great Sunday, Breathe You In will be out next month - watch this space :-)
