#8Sunday: Chance delivers the bad news…

It’s time for Weekend Writing Warriors (WeWriWa) in which authors present eight sentences from an existing work. My snippet is from Destiny’s Chance, a reincarnation erotic romance to be released by Loose Id on May 14. To recap the story to this point: Destiny Grable was in a serious car accident with her best friend Zoe Richards. She awakens in the hospital to find Zoe’s ex-boyfriend, Chance Everett at her side…

Although he and Zoe had split up recently, they had remained on good terms, and since she had no close relations, authorities would have notified him. So why was Chance with her and not Zoe?

Unless…unless…

She would have bolted upright, except for Chance’s hand on her shoulder. “Oh my God! She’s…she’s all right, isn’t she?”

Bleakness darkened his eyes. He shook his head. “She didn’t survive the crash.”

Unofficial blurb for Destiny’s Chance

Destiny Grable can’t help that she’s fallen in love Chance Everett, her best friend’s boyfriend, but she’s never, ever acted on her feelings — until she and Zoe are in a car accident, her friend is killed, and she is reincarnated in her body. She never wished for something like this to happen, but perhaps now she’ll be free to love Chance the way she always wanted to.

Chance might have had pursued Destiny, but he has a kinky side and she was a nice girl. But now she’s dead, and the accident has forced him to take in his ex-girlfriend. As soon as she recovers and moves out, he’ll get on with his life.

Will two star-crossed lovers find happiness?

    You gave me goosebumps.

    I didn’t get at first, from the snippet, that Destiny was reincarnated in Zoe’s body. But when I read the blurb, well, that’s just wow. It adds a whole new level to the story. The snippet was great though, an excellent start to the story, just the right amount of tension without being over the top. When does your book release? Oh, and congrats on your book deal with LooseID. 🙂

    I’m in complete agreement with the general consensus. What a unique spin on reincarnation but, really, why not? Looks like this is the one to buy cuz I have no patience when I’m intrigued. Great 8.
