Every week I, Effing Feline, give the followers of my weekly blog the incalculable benefits of my wisdom. Now it’s your turn. I’ll tell you about it after this word from my sponsor, The Saint of Quarantine Island.
Kendo Carlisle, the Saint of Gilford Island, responds to Janet’s striptease.
“There’s something you should know about me.” His voice was a ghostly whisper, scarcely audible over the pounding of her heart.
She couldn’t answer. After her outlandish behavior, she no longer had the right to speak to a man such as him.
“I…” He paused, licked his lips then looked away from her face.
Whatever he was about to say about himself must be disgraceful…horrible…maybe illegal.
“I didn’t kill my wife.” His composure crumpled. His face contorted as he let out a low moan. Shaking with silent sobs, he wrapped his arms around her, his hands hot on her bare flesh, though they remained on her back above the waist.
I hate to burden you with too much reading (there are a lot more snippets to get to), but here are a few more.
After a long, awkward moment, she hugged him back. Could she have heard him right? He was upset because he hadn’t killed his wife?
Had Gilford turned him insane, too?
Effing Feline here again. This week, in addition to being able to comment on my pet human’s writing, you can, for the first time ask me a question. So go ahead, fire away. I’m a big cat, I can take it.
The Saint of Quarantine Island
Instead of the usual blurb, here is an excerpt from a new review of this book from Ind’Tale Magazine.
An intense work, “The Saint of Quarantine Island” is a sci-fi/psychological drama featuring stellar writing with diverse themes, powerful emotions, and complex characters. As a technical work, this book is incredibly well-written. The flow, character development, world-building, emotions and more will thoroughly engross the reader from beginning to end
