From 'AFK' ~ a Mid Week Tease ( @evernightpub #erom #urbanfantasy )

Welcome to the middle of the week!
Mid Week Tease is an event where authors are spotlighting a few lines or a paragraph or two from their stories. Readers, you get to sample some delicious snippets and be teased, titillated and tantalized into the weekend!

My contribution to MWT this week is from Evernight's anthology Keyboards & Kink & my story in it called AFK. I'm currently working on the first book (title yet to be determined) in the series (C.O.V.E.N.) that follows what happened in AFK. Enjoy!

* Deepening shadows of dusk descended on the area. Standing in the dark recess of a doorway, Bella, dressed in black leather pants, tank-top and jacket, blended into the scenery. She sniffed the air. The scents of cooking meats and their fatty, greasy drippings from the fast food hamburger place down the block and the hole-in-the-wall Mexican joint next door stimulated her appetite. People had told her the burritos and enchiladas didn’t appear appetizing, but the food was said to be superb, the best on the boulevard. Her stomach gurgled. No time to eat.
* Other smells wafted by her. Hot, dusty asphalt, releasing its heat gathered from the relentless blazing sun of day, underlay the food. The odor of thousands upon thousands of tourists that had walked the streets followed on its heels, and trailing after everything...his scent. She lifted her face toward the blanket of night sliding over and covering the waning light of the gray day and inhaled deeply.
* She enjoyed a brief moment of pleasure from Godric’s scent. Leather and wool. Male musk denoting strength and virility. If only he weren’t an enemy of my clan.
