The LOOK Challenge

I've Been Tagged!
 According to the rules, you're supposed to do a search in your work in progress for the word "look" and then paste the surrounding paragraph(s) and tag as many people as possible.
So here goes....

My post comes from my next release, THE BELTANE CHOICE.

   “You claim to be a branded warrior-woman?”
   His tone was contemptuous when he stared at the spear brand decorating her upper arm, though she wore no armbands below it. It was Nara’s turn to scowl, exasperated by the aspersions he cast on her abilities. Though his glances were askance, the warrior considered her just as thoroughly as she did him. Two moons ago no man would have given her such frank assessment, but it was impossible to look away now. An instinctive tremor prickled her spine when the centre of his eyes darkened to cavernous black.
      A conflict of sensations washed through her. She hated his superiority in the situation, detested his contempt, but could not deny his seductive stare made things happen inside her–which no man had ever managed to do before. Quelling the stimulation at her womanly core seemed impossible. Yet, try she must. 

I'm tagging: Liz Flaherty, Hywela Lyn, Joanne Stewart, Paula Martin, Catriona King, Carin Walker, Mark Patton, Kim Walker, Michela Sacchi O'Brien.
