Sneak Peek Sunday: Shot Through the Heart



Welcome to Sneak Peek Sunday, where we showcase a bit of our WIP or Book. This is from my Crimson Romance, Shot Through The Heart:



            An eerie moan carried on the wind.

            Derrick’s skin crawled. He had not just heard that ghostly cry. The girl was dead. Long gone.

            Just to be sure he checked her pulse. Nothing. The noise had to be Turbo or the muck sucking at his feet.

            A dead girl was getting to him.

            He wasn’t a wimp by any means, but he wasn’t used to stumbling across human corpses in the woods. He was imagining things.

            Gasping, he knelt for moment and thought things through. No way to call for help. He didn’t have a cell phone with him, and there was no reception out here anyway. Night crept in around him and he didn’t think he could pack a cadaver out of the wilderness in the coming pitch-black rainstorm. Dead was dead. The girl wasn’t going anywhere. First light would be soon enough to take her back to the ranch where Search and Rescue could transport the body to the morgue.
