Happy New Year Snippetters! To start the year off I have a snippet from one of my favorite books, Electric Candle (book 2 of The Sleepless City). The series was cowritten with Anne Barwell.
Declan laughed, and again, his voice was full of warmth and affection, the sadness gone. “It’s late, and I need my rest.”
“How do I find this guy? Boggslake isn’t a huge city, but there are still a fair number of people in it.” That’s when Forge had another, more disturbing thought. “What if it’s not a he?” he blurted into the phone.
“Relax. I’ve never heard of a vampire having to go against his or her sexual nature when their soulmate was involved. Of course, he’s a he. You’re a detective. Detect.”
Forge sighed when a text came through, this one from the station. “I’ve got to go. Apparently, there is a dead body, again. Soulmate or no, I have a job to do.”
Declan laughed. “Isn’t that what the Homicide Department deals with? The dead? Go be a master detective and bring the bad guys to justice. I anxiously await the headlines.” There was a pause then, “Talk to me when you can. I miss you and be careful,” Declan said softly before he disconnected.
Forge read the address and responded that he had to get his car and would arrive shortly. He jogged to where his vehicle was parked and was on his way in a few minutes. His destination was a good ten minutes’ drive to an area closer to the lakeshore. Forge knew the way without having to think about it, which was good since his mind was churning over other things.
