Wounds of the Warrior (Part 1 of 3) has been published. This is the first of three parts in a 15400 word story and features a M/F couple.
This story takes place following Marks of the Protector though it can be read as a standalone. One of the leads in Wounds is a side character in Marks, but I liked him well enough I thought he deserved to have a larger part in another story. One of the leads from Marks also puts in a short appearance. Very short though–I don’t particularly like it when a member (or both members) of a couple from a previous story try to take over a sequel.
Now, that being said, I will admit that there is no sex (I know, I know, I’m sorry) in this story. It just didn’t make sense. You can probably tell from the title, but wounds are involved and I’m not so silly an author that I’m going to make my characters start humping like rabbits when one of them is bleeding all over the place/suffering from infection/dealing with a broken bone or two.
Don’t get me wrong…they want to, it just isn’t feasible in this story. So, this one is more for those of you into fantasy and slow-building romance than those who like straight-up erotica.
