Sneak Peek Sunday: Soul of the Dragon Excerpt #2

Welcome to Sneak Peek Sunday! Thanks to Sara Walter Elwood/Cera Dubois for sponsoring this weekly six-paragraph sneak peek blog hop. Click here to see more great excerpts!

Here’s a bit of the first scene where heroine Alexa Ranger’s boss, Rock Davis, appears in Soul of the Dragon. He’s the hero of book two, Soulflight, coming soon!

Reacting by instinct, Alexa stepped back to regain her balance, braced, and tossed the man over her shoulder. Instead of landing on his back, however, he flipped all the way and landed on his feet, then spun to face her, laughing.

“Rock!” She wanted to press a hand to her heart, vibrating as it was with adrenaline, but couldn’t show any kind of “female weakness” to her boss. Ex-boss. She stuck her hands on her hips instead. “What the hell do you think you’re doing?”

Rock Davis shrugged. “Keeping you on your toes so you won’t be out of practice when you come back.”

Alexa rolled her eyes and strode past him to the swing, where she dropped onto it and pushed it into violent motion. “I’m not coming back, Rock.”

Without jarring the swing or interrupting its timing, he eased himself onto it and settled back. “Oh? Then what do you plan to do with your life after this personal job is done?”

Good question. She’d been concentrating so hard on the outcome, she hadn’t considered the aftermath.

    Ha! Love this! I think I said it last week. *No one* gets to sneak up on this girl, even guys named Rock. Damschroder heroines are always so cool and capable but still all-woman. I also took a peek at the cover for Soulflight. Nice! I hope we see more in coming weeks.

    Nice one. I’ve not learned nearly enough about this lady, yet!

  3. Thanks, Delynn and Nancy! I appreciate the comments!

    Hey, a chick who can flip a guy, even if he lands on his feet, is a winner with me. So, does she come back, and is Rock there when she does? Nice, Natalie. Love discovering new authors.

    1. Thanks for coming by and commenting, Mac! 🙂

      Alexa doesn’t come back in the way Rock wants, but all works out just fine in the end. 🙂
