Blank Cloud

Welcome to another week in the challenge. The topic is My Earliest Memory. You would think this would be an easy topic. Just cast your mind back in time to your childhood, jot down a few lines and you’re done. Nope. Then there is the complication of a similar topic in the 2017 challenge.

Whether it is because of a focus on getting through each day, my age (I admit to rolling past a double nickle, but nothing else), or bad events knocking back good ones, when I tried to search for a memory, there was a blank cloud. That is not to say there is no self-awareness. Just that the images no longer roll by on command as if watching a movie.

So, I won’t mention falling off a pony or extended summer stays in the mountains with grandparents, nor my first crush.

Finn Conleth leads his team of enforcer dragon shifters with an iron fist and a cold heart.

When his body eventually gives out, he’ll leave, living his last days alone.

Delaney Hamilton moved across the country to escape the freak fires that plague her. But when another suspicious fire erupts and rapidly escalates around her, her hopes for a new life go up in smoke. She has no choice but to turn to the mysterious men who come to her aid.

Finn knows the fire is dragon-caused, which puts Delaney’s problems directly in his jurisdiction. No matter how her wounded grey eyes call to every part of him, he refuses to risk her life in the mating process.

Until another dragon threatens to claim Delaney for his own, and Finn has to sacrifice everything to keep her alive…

Author Bio:

Award-winning paranormal romance author, Abigail Owen, grew up consuming books and exploring the world through her writing. She attempted to find a practical career related to her favorite pastime by earning a degree in English Rhetoric (Technical Writing). However, she swiftly discovered that writing without imagination is not nearly as fun as writing with it.

No matter the genre, she loves to write witty, feisty heroines, sexy heroes who deserve them, and a cast of lovable characters to surround them (and maybe get their own stories). She currently resides in Austin, Texas, with her own personal hero, her husband, and their two children, who are growing up way too fast.
