Tuesday’s Word

Pressing at his side and burying her nose in his thick ruff, she denied time and fate and the moon’s dominion.

About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, faeries...you name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.

  1. Ah, I’m flattered you used my book for your Tuesday Word! How cool!

    Ruff is such a fun word. As a kid, and even now, I thought it was hilarious that it makes the same sound as a dog who has one. 🙂

    Fun word, though I never thought it matched the description for some reason. I love the sentence Laura used it in. Just beautiful!
