Rainbow Snippets is a fun Facebook group where authors gather weekly to share pieces of their work.
Today’s snippet comes from book 4 of my River Wolf pack series, which has River and his mate and friends on a quest for a new territory. The book will also tell about Milo, Justin, and the others in the Angel Hills Pack, which is anxious for the new omegas to start breeding. This scene comes very early in the book when River finds Patrick (one of the rogues he took in a while back) lounging on an overhang watching Jax, Brooks, and David below.
Patrick nodded to River in greeting as a sudden breeze ruffled his ginger-colored hair. Below, River could see Jax, David, and Brooks laughing and splashing in the pool. Why Patrick was watching them, River wasn’t sure, although it was certainly a pleasant place to sit–the view of the rounded green mountains rolling into the distance nothing less than spectacular.
River watched David jump onto Jax’s back, the human staggering briefly under the weight before heading for deeper water. Brooks disappeared under the surface and shot up again in a rush, knocking David off Jax and under water. David came up sputtering and sent a large splash into Brooks’ face.
“I’ve never liked humans,” Patrick suddenly broke into River’s thoughts about how much fun the three men seemed to be having. “After what they did to my pack, I despised them.”
“Anyone would,” River said.
Patrick turned to him, his lean, pale body freckled from recent sun exposure. “I didn’t like you much when I met you. Thought you were crazy for what you were doing. I mean, didn’t you realize how ruthless humans are? Didn’t you know that they’d killed children? My whole fucking family?” He looked back over the cliff to the men splashing below. “And you’d mated a half-human. I couldn’t imagine that Josiah could be anything but cruel.”
