First look

Here’s a snippet from Talk Of The Town, where Craig goes backstage to greet his next guest–a man who claims to be a vampire. Carl looks up, right into Craig’s eyes, and Craig sees …

 

He glanced up from his magazine, and Craig saw them clearly then.  His breath caught in his throat.  They were beautiful, one of the only really attractive physical features he possessed, soft liquid brown like melted chocolate and expressive, with long feathery eyelashes.  Craig found himself staring into those eyes, looking at his reflection in them with an almost hypnotic suggestiveness.  He imagined those long eyelashes touching the man’s cheeks when Craig kissed his neck, letting his lips trail down–

He dragged his own eyes away with effort and turned to shut the door behind him, glad his partner was out of town.

  2. Oooh, nice snippet. I wonder how much was Craig and how much was the vampire’s power of influence.

    1. Thank you ❤ Let's just say that Craig is lucky Carl wore his glasses — a little further into the book, Craig finds out just how powerful Carl's eyes are, and how little power he has to resist them 🙂

    1. Thanks 🙂 I’ve been interested in them for many years, but I’ve only crafted my own recently. Car, unlike my Alasdair, is still fairly young, having been turned in the Renaissance 🙂

  11. Thank you so much ❤ Carl's eyes are one of his greatest weapons; that's why he has to wear eyeglasses most of the time 🙂
