A kiss from the demon. Read a snippet from DEMON ON JACKSON STREET #Romance #PNR #MPreg #MLM #Books #Reading #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! This weekend, I'm sharing another snippet from the fifth book in my Shifter Towers series, DEMON ON JACKSON STREET. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM (gay) paranormal romance.

Set-up: Last weekend, Jet was waiting for Toby with pizza, in an attempt to gain his trust. With some reluctance, Toby did eat, and with even more resistance, finally agreed to let Jet walk him home. In fact, he starts to meet Toby for lunch on a regular basis and walks him home as well, never asking for anything in return. Not yet.

In this weekend's snippet, Jet has just walked Toby home yet again. And they are saying goodbye. (In Toby's POV)


“Well, I should get inside now. Thank you again for the food and the company.”

“It was and always is my pleasure.”

When he stroked the side of my face with his knuckles, I froze. It was such an intimate touch. At least for me. Then he leaned forward and kissed the corner of my mouth.

“You okay over there, Toby? Need me to bring my broom over?”

I gulped as my cheeks warmed. I glanced past Jet to Mrs. Apple. 

**And a few more sentences for your reading pleasure**

She must be feeling well again. “No, I’m good.” I waved to her. “He’s a friend. No need to worry.”

“Okay, I’ll believe you. But he better treat you good.”

Jet gave me a shy smile and dug the toe of his boot into the concrete. Not a look I ever expected to see on him.

“He does,” I called over. “Thank you for your concern. And glad to see you’re feeling better.”

I waited until she sat back in her rocking chair before returning my attention to Jet. “I…I really should be getting in. Mimi will be worried.”

“Okay, I’ll see you Thursday, then.” He reached for my hand and ran his thumb along my palm. “Have a good night.”

“You, too.” I broke contact with him and stepped toward the door. “Thanks again.”

Without looking back, I raced inside. Jet did things to my heart I wasn’t ready to admit. I couldn’t get my hopes up. I just needed to enjoy the present and focus on my grandmother while I still had her. She was the most important person in my life, even if another made me feel special.




DEMON ON JACKSON STREET
Shifter Towers book five

Jet
Once upon a time there was a demon who was the best at convincing people to sell their souls. That was me. Is me. And now I have a new assignment, one Father told me would be difficult. I didn’t know what “difficult” meant until I met the young man, someone who has barely anything. Collecting his soul should be easy, right? There are so many things I can give him. Except, he doesn’t believe he deserves a better life. I have to find something he desires before the assignment is given to my brother. Because Crow uses the most villainous means to obtain souls. Lines I don’t cross. And I don’t want to see Toby hurt. There has to be another way.

Toby
I’m not like them. I can’t shift into a predator to defend myself, or even into a small rodent to run and hide. The wolf shifters know that every time they rough me up and steal my food. I always wish for a guardian angel to protect me from them. Then one day Jet appears, looking nothing like the angel I’d imagined. But I don’t know if I should trust him. He makes me feel things no other alpha ever has. Dangerous things. Not good when I have to stay focused on my grandmother. I don’t know how much longer I’ll have her around.

The demon is waiting for Toby. Read a snippet from DEMON ON JACKSON STREET #Romance #MLM #PNR #MPreg #Books #Reading


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! This weekend, I'm sharing another snippet from the fifth book in my Shifter Towers series, DEMON ON JACKSON STREET. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM (gay) paranormal romance.

Set-up: Last weekend, Toby realized that he had extra food in his bag of groceries after meeting Jet, and isn't sure how that happened.

This weekend, Jet uses his powers again as he continues to try and gain Toby's trust... (In Jet's POV)


Four hours. I’d been waiting four hours, and Toby still hadn’t been given his lunch break. This place was taking advantage of him, something I’d deal with later, as I’d just noticed him leaving the store. Having watched him enough, I knew he’d come to the exact bench I sat on, whether he brought food to eat or not. He’d simply sit and watch life pass by for thirty minutes then return to the secondhand store to work until the store closed.

As I waited for him to join me, I set my hand over the box of pizza I’d bought, to warm the food up. My story wouldn’t be believable if it was cold. Because my goal was to gain his trust. That’s the only way I could figure out how I was going to get access to his beautiful soul.

“Jet?” Toby stood in front of me, eyebrows furrowed. “What are you doing here?”

A little extra for Toby ~ Read a snippet from DEMON ON JACKSON STREET #Romance #MPreg #PNR #MLM #8Sunday #Books #Reading


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! This weekend, I'm sharing another snippet from the fifth book in my Shifter Towers series, DEMON ON JACKSON STREET. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM (gay) paranormal romance.

**FREE Kindle ebook** HIS OMEGA ON STAGE is FREE until February 16th!**

Set-up: Last weekend, Jet officially introduced himself to Toby after saving him from his bullies. But, when Toby asks Jet why he came to help him, Jet says he saw him earlier and thought  he could use a friend. Toby doesn't trust that reasoning and wants to get back to his apartment. So, Jet shrugs and leaves.

This weekend, I'm finishing off that chapter, when Toby is back in his apartment, and discovering something abnormal....


“How was your day, Toby?” Mimi asked as soon as I stepped inside the door.

“Um, okay.” I didn’t want to answer questions as to what had transpired and still wasn’t sure myself. But at least I still had food in the bag and her medication. “Would you like some soup?”

“That would be wonderful, Toby.” She adjusted herself in the bed. “Thank you for working so hard and taking such good care of me.”

I shrugged then turned to start putting the groceries away before I began to make dinner. As I removed the contents of the bag, I noticed there was far more than what I’d bought and paid for and more than food. 

**And here's a little more...**

On top of the extra cans of soup broth and noodles, there was shampoo and scented body wash, a container of fresh strawberries, and cookies. All stuff I never would have splurged on. Where had it come from? Because I hadn’t seen any of it on the sidewalk when Jet helped me to clean it up. And it’s not as if he’d been carrying anything when he’d arrived so suddenly. None of this made any sense.

Though, I didn’t have any more time to contemplate. Mimi started one of her coughing fits. I rushed to her side to help her sit up and rubbed her back. Eventually, she stopped, and I finished making our dinner. But I still had no idea what to think of that mysterious stranger named Jet.
