With release day only 24 hours from now I thought it would be a great time to share a teaser from the novella. So grab your coffee and enjoy this small excerpt of The Hunted a novella which begins my series Guild of Assassins.
With great care, Taren lightly brushed away the tears with his fingers before cupping her face and tilting her head up to meet his gaze head on. “So beautiful, tasa meela.” His deep voice held a husky note, sending a cascade of warmth through her, sweeping over her breasts and down to the juncture between her legs.
“What does that mean?” Her question came out in a breathless whisper as his heat caressed her, building a pulsing need hammering through her.
“The closest translation in your words is ‘bright spirit’.”
Taren drew nearer touching his forehead to hers and stroking her cheek with gentle fingers.
“Oh, I like that.” Leigh whispered placing her hand over his.
Time froze for one perfect moment as they stood poised at the brink of a precipice she sensed there would be coming back from.
“My mind tells me this is wrong, what is between us. Still, my soul cries out for you, your body a sweet siren’s song I must follow.”
Her breath caught on his words, her heart opening to him. She was dangerously close to falling in love with him, just as she knew she could trust him with her heart and soul, her very life.
Everything about him and her felt…right. Not wrong as he argued.
She drew away just enough to stare up into his beautiful dark eyes, missing the swirl of red she spied that morning in their dark depths.
“I am yours to take, Taren. I have never before felt such a pull. All that I am calls out for you too.” To lend power to her words, she reached out fingers sinking into thick golden strands of his hair. She marveled in the silkiness before lightly tracing his tightly curved horns.
On a shudder, his eyes closed, his breathing labored as she stroked them. Who knew a Demosian’s s horns could be so sensitive?
On pre-order through Amazon.
