Happy Sunday! Sexy Snippets are seven sentences taken from a work in progress or published book, brought to you every Sunday.
Today, I give you a sexy snippet from my dark frontier romance, RED BLACK DAWNING ❤
In this scene, Annabelle is in labor. She’s scared half to death and in horrible pain. She has just survived an Indian attack on a settler convoy headed west, but doesn’t know how the hell she and her baby will make it alive in the wild.

Soft footfalls sounded nearby.
Sniffing, she looked up and adjusted her sight through the tears in her eyes.
Black Wolf walked up from the river with hasty steps, lines of worry on his forehead. He looked like a half-naked prince of the wild, dark and beautiful, and she couldn’t help noticing how his wet loincloth showed the neat outline of his manhood as he moved.
Lord, have mercy!
Her heart leapt in her chest, and a quick pulse thundered in her ears. Warmth filled her, driving away the bad feelings. If she succumbed to exhaustion now and never awoke, at least, the last image to forever etch on her mind was this half-erotic one of her Indian savior coming for her.
Comforted, she took a long, deep breath and closed her eyes again.
Anno 1865. Three regional conflicts, three conflicted hearts.
As the Indian Wars rage in Colorado, Ute hunter Tókwar wanders without purpose after finding his wife and unborn son murdered and mutilated by white trappers. Sick with grief, he’s about to leave for the Spirit World when he witnesses a joint Arapaho/Cheyenne attack on a convoy.
Heavily pregnant Annabelle is the daughter of a cotton plantation owner and his black slave. While her fiancé, a renegade Confederate soldier, is imprisoned at Camp Douglas, she flees the Civil War-ravaged Arkansas with a group of settlers to build a new home at the western frontier.
Dog soldier Hevo thirsts for blood. With his band of warriors on the prowl, he aims to avenge the innocents slaughtered at Sand Creek and wipe out all Pale Faces. His plan comes to an abrupt halt when he’s wounded during a raid gone wrong and forced to assist an enemy Ute deliver a baby.
Becoming responsible for a newborn amid the chaos and pain gives Tókwar some solace, but he knows it’s temporary. The beautiful, feisty mixed-blood mother is restless, and despite his growing attraction for her and fatherly love for her son, he and Hevo must travel east and return her safely to her man. But how will he enter the Pale Faces’ war zone without risking his life—or once more losing his heart?
