Six Sentence Sunday: "Blacker Than Black"

For this week's six, a sneak-peek at Black, on the boulevard in the opening scene. A vampire just eased up to the curb in a snazzy little coupe, its glassy curves refracting the blue-lit glow from the buildings.
I soak up the sensation, willing the stranger not to move, or speak; I want to stay in this moment for a while.  To freeze this pristine instant of unrealized potential.  Before the vampire flaps his lips and makes an ass out of himself.  It happens every time, without fail, and every time I manage to conceal the sigh of disappointment and refrain from putting voice to whatever sarcastic comment pops in my head.
Silence, magical energy.  May it last, please, for just a little longer?
Like what you read and want the rest? Pre-order your copy of "Blacker Than Black" over here at Riptide.

Good stuff. Elegant and slightly jaded. I want to know what the vamps usually say, lol.

Thanks for coming to visit, ladies! I'm glad you enjoyed this little excerpt. I imagine it will probably be part of the excerpt that ends up on Riptide once it gets closer to release.
