Sunday Snippet: Major Issues

February 1, 2015

One more week until Bitten returns with season two. I can't wait!! Banshee is amping up the tension and I'm looking forward to the next episode. Makes me miss Strike Back and look forward to whenever it comes back to my television screen.

My usual fare, The Flash, Arrow, Gotham, and Sleepy Hollow had good showings. I'm enjoying the story arc on Arrow even if my twitter feed seems to hold a different opinion. I love the flashbacks and how they reveal information about Oliver's time off the island.

Also need to take a moment to mention Lost Girl. It's the final season and I'm so going to miss the show when it's gone. Thankfully, I'll have Orphan Black to look forward to soon and will get to see Ksenia Solo in a new role. J

Tonight's post is from Major Issues, a novella where a past secret is resolved, opening the door for the hero and heroine to start on a new journey.

Here's the tagline:

Ellis Wright, a damn good pilot who works hard at her job, runs into an old nemesis—Major Anton Burnhard—and he tries to put her on the defensive again. But Ellis isn't the same raw cadet from five years ago. This time around she'll bring in her backup—Trey Shuttleworth—if she can convince him the rumor about her affair with the major isn't true.

And a sneaky peek…

Trey stopped her. "Wait, what are you saying?" He shook his head. "Why didn't you set people straight?"
Ellis shrugged. "No one asked. They assumed it was true." She pinned Trey with her gaze. "You did."
Trey looked away. She had him with that one.
She lifted her shoulder again. "Frankly, I didn't care enough to worry. Why bother?" Her mouth thinned. "People think what they want."
Trey argued. "But if you'd only said something—"
Ellis cut him off. "Said what? That I was stupid?" She snorted. "What happened, happened. Five years ago. Ancient history."
Trey countered. "Not so ancient if it's biting you on the ass now."
Ellis conceded his point. "You've got me there." She waited a beat. "You gonna help or not?"
Trey let the image of the tall, hulking major fill his head. Ellis wouldn't have stood a chance against him. And the guy would go down for trapping her in a no win situation.
Trey nodded. "Oh, I'm in. Count on it."

I'm loving the twisty turns in this one. Can't wait to write more.

That's it for this week. Catch everyone on the flip.
