I just love the setup, Kirsten. I'm a sucker for damsel-in-distress stuff. And this one has a terrific twist. What a great opening!

Ooh, thanks, Gina! I entered a couple of the scenes from C'sB in Diva contests (the first kiss and the argument) and got lots of good feedback there.

Divas are freaking blamm0!

Of course, it's gonna take me ages to work my way through all those fellow Divas' excerpts. :P

Crista said...

Great opening - I loved the imagery you used. It definitely helped bring the atmosphere to life.

Ella Drake said...

Great scene. Descriptions put me there, the reactions of Collin got me into his character, and the intro of the woman is mysterious and intriguing. Makes me want to read more.

Stephanie said...

Loved your excerpt. Congrats on the contract with Samhein! :)

Barbara said...

Love the new site, Kirsten! And I noticed you have a m/m/f coming out. My kind of story ;)

Nice idea posting excerpts like that. I went over to Jeannie's and read hers. Very interesting.

Read yours the other day and love it!

Also read the excerpt for Rhianna and Lianon's story. Yes... it's gonna be smokin, I can tell. :D

Thanks, everyone. :D

As for Lianon and Rhianna--smokin', Leah? I'm not sure. I mean, I'm at 10 000 words, and they haven't even kissed yet. Weird.

smokin', Leah? I'm not sure. I mean, I'm at 10 000 words, and they haven't even kissed yet. Weird.Oh yeah, you writing it? It's gonna be smokin. :D

And I can already feel the heat between them...even though, they haven't even kissed yet.
