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 has waded into the river for a bath after her delivery, but the current is too strong and she too weak.

Labor had taken all her strength. A gasp of fear escaped her as she drifted downstream, unable to correct her direction. The only way was to flap with her arms, paddle like a dog with her legs, and try to work with the current while slowly steering toward the shore.

Something—no, someone caught her shoulder from behind and turned her around. Swallowing water, she swiveled and found herself face to face with Tókwar.

Thank goodness!

Features tense, eyes searching hers, he held her arm and started to swim for the shore. She could only work with him and be grateful for his strength. When their feet touched ground, he stopped, slid his arms underneath hers, and pulled her to his large body. God, such strength. She felt like a puppet in his arms as he stepped backward to the shore without a word, holding her tight. She clung to his strong neck, grateful he took care of her.

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?
