It’s all Greek to me…

PinchOfTheGame[The]FSHola Snippetteers!

Yesterday got away from me but better late than never, yeah?

Here’s another snippet from The Pinch of the Game. I’ve posted some smexy bits, and some worldbuilding, and today i’m sharing a little magick. I’m up against the limit of what i can post from this story now, though, so i’ll have to figure out something new for next week. 🙂



“Hey.” Michael growled, low and menacing. It turned me on more than it should have. “Maybe you want to keep your voice down? We’re not alone here.”

“See what I mean? I don’t mean to insult you, Michael, but those two over there are listening because they think it’s cool we’re speaking Greek.”


“Yes. They haven’t understood a word of what we’ve said, and they won’t unless I want them to.” I charmed the taste from the rest of that rotgut scotch, and tossed it back like it was smooth single malt.

Thanks for reading!

If you’d like to read the rest of The Pinch of the Game, today is a good time to buy. My 2nd anniversary sale runs through the 28th at the Dreamspinner store, and all of my stories are 30% off.

Okay, now it’s time to visit more snippets. If you didn’t come from there (or even if you did :)), check out the Snippet Sunday group on Facebook. Have a lovely Sunday!

  1. Nice use of magic… unless, of course, the two men listening are Greek. LOL Love fixing the taste of the booze, too. (And Michael’s voice turning him on more than it should have.)

    In short, great snippet!

  2. Hahahahaha! Fantastic. I’ve always wanted to be in the same position. Must be why I learned Russian. 🙂 Great snippet, Charley.

  3. Learning how to understand strangers is what drew me to learning languages in the first place… So, what does he have the equivalent to a Universal de-Translator?

  4. So sorry for the late response this week around. I’m playing catch up on Sunday Snippets.

    Anyways, I loved the snippet. Interesting use of magic and I like how Michael had no idea they were sounding Greek to those other two. I like the main character’s attitude, so laid back and funny. Awesome snippet!
