Eight Sentence Sunday with Vonnie Davis


 
Welcome to my stop on the Eight Sentence Sunday blog tour. Sundays are a great time to sit back, relax and hop from blog to blog, reading the excerpts of some great authors. I find a new writer to fall in love with every Sunday--more often than not, two.

My excerpt today is from RAIN IS A LOVE SONG, book two of my Red Hand Conspiracy romantic suspense series.

Gwen and her daughter have traveled to Paris for the birth of her sister's first child. While sitting at a sidewalk cafe, Jean-Luc arrives on a motorcycle dressed for undercover work, wearing long white angel wings over his black jeans and t-shirt. He and his boss at the French counterterrorism unit are talking further up the street when Gwen's child is snatched...

They’ve taken my child!” Gwen dashed for the van as it sped away. The vehicle took aim at Jean-Luc’s motorcycle and crushed its back wheel in the process, then careened into the street.

Heavy footsteps pounded behind her and a blur of white feathers sprinted by. The vehicle, trying to weave through traffic on the two-lane street, slowed. Jean-Luc’s long legs ate up the distance. He leapt onto the back bumper and scrambled for the top. The van spun around the corner with an avenging angel clinging to its roof.

Okay, where's the rest of this book? I would NOT want to be the driver of this van when that avenging angel tears his way in!
