I’m working on the prequel book for ‘Lethal Sin‘ (which just appeared on BookBub last week and is still on sale for 99 cents!), and it’s going to be dark, and twisted, and a lot of fun. If you’ve already read Lethal Sin you may have been a little curious about Camille’s sordid past, about how she got involved in the assassin game, which ultimately puts her on the path to collide with Mateo in the book. I was so caught up in Camille’s story myself that this prequel started flowing out. It’s not named yet, and I’m not that far in (a little over 10k words) but I already love this scene between her and a very important person in her life. Well, he will be important, but this is from when they meet.
“I have money,” she whispered, but the man just sighed again.
“You don’t have enough. Trust me.” Crossing his arms he faced off with her, his pencil flipping over his fingers, and she was surprised for a moment by how handsome he was. Most of the dicks in this place were haggard, run down by their hard lives, the drugs and the alcohol – but he looked clean and put together. Rare.
It made her hate him a little more.
“I’ve got six hundred. Cash.” Her voice was barely a whisper, but he’d heard her. One eyebrow lifted neatly and he seemed to really look at her for the first time, his eyes narrowing as he stared.
“Where did you get that?”
“Around.” Camille swallowed and leaned back in her chair, mimicking his posture. Casual, laid-back, but still clearly in charge.
“I don’t like liars.”
“I didn’t ask you to like me, did I?” She kept her stare leveled at him, but he surprised her again by laughing, low and quiet.
“No, you did not.” The man stood up and tucked the paper under his arm as he tilted his head. “Alright. Come with me.”
Curious? So am I! I can’t wait to see how this book unfolds, and I’ll try to share scenes as I write them and love them. This is definitely a book that you’ll want to read ‘Lethal Sin’ with, although it can be read alone. The entire Dangerous Games series is going to be raw like this, and I have to say I’m having a blast writing this kind of full-force language. Until my next blog hop, check out these others below!
