Six Sentence Sunday - February 13th

 
Here’s another snippet of six from my newly released fantasy erotic romance book Tears on a Tranquil Lake
In this selection, I'll give you a taste of my favorite character from the book...a Haitian vodoun Mambo named Teega. I'm fascinated by characters who are both good and evil, capable of great kindness and unspeakable wrath...like Teega.
Art reference: Mrs-Dracula9274
            “Relax, my child, Teega es here. I heard yer heart crying from over a mile yonder. Ye be the saddest soul on tis island tonight. I have come te help ye.”
            Her voice comforted, its sweetness pouring over me like warm maple syrup. It gave me the courage to turn around. A beautiful, middle-aged woman with skin dark as the night sky leaned over me.

Characters like that give me the shivers!

Marie Dees said...

Oh, I love characters like this. And a bit of magic in the story.

Love how I can hear Teega speak through the phrasing of the dialogue, and how she's drawn to the MC's misery.

I love characters like this too, the ones who are neither good nor evil, but can, at times, play both roles. Especially when they walk a line so narrow the reader can't decide if they will help or hurt the hero and/or heroine.

Powerful lines.

Nice snippet! Are attention to detail in the dialogue.

Very cool snippet and I really like that picture a lot too!

I do like the use of accent here. It makes her stand out.

I would say make a noticable difference between e as in eh and e as in ee, but that's just my personal craziness.
