Good afternoon bookworms! 😍🐛 Today has been pretty good so far. I got my math classwork done early today so I've been able to read A Gathering of Shadows when I have free time at work. 😁 I hope my second shift goes by quickly, I already can't wait to go home, relax, and open all those boxes waiting for me. 😍😍😍 Happy Friday everyone! 🎉

Excerpt of The Witches of Hant Hollow by D.F. Jones
She swam in full frontal view of the young man. The darkness in her wanted him.
Iris took her time getting dressed as she looked across the river into the young man’s eyes then for the fun of it, she popped over in front of him using magic. He stumbled backward and fell.
Iris laughed as she knelt beside him. “I’m Iris Doanhart. I’m sure you’ve heard stories of my girls and me.”
Thomas sat up. His dark, soulful eyes seemed to reach inside of Iris so deep she felt the tiniest sliver of ice melting away from her cold heart. He placed his forearm on bent knee. “My father sold the property to your family. It used to be a part of our farm, and I still fish here sometimes.”
“What’s your name, young sire?”
He reached over and caressed her cheek with the palm of his hand. “My name’s Thomas, and you are a most beautiful woman." He stroked her hair. "Red hair, the color of an autumn sunset, and blue eyes like the ocean.” He leaned in and kissed her softly, trailing the edges of her lips with his tongue.
Iris lost herself in the moment of his tender kiss then she stopped abruptly and smacked him hard across the face.
Thomas grabbed her wrists and pushed her on the ground covering her body with his. “You reveal your nakedness to me in such a way and expect me not to take a little sample? Satisfy my hunger and quench my thirst.”
