I’m in a teasing mood today, so I thought I would share something special with you…a short excerpt from Forevermore (Blood & Bone, #3). Oh, and the book releases March 14!
* Fair warning: there are probably typos and maybe some missing words. The book is with the editor right now! Gah!
Excerpt from Forevermore (Blood & Bone, #3)
There was definitely something wrong with me because I was enjoying this. The verbal fencing, the tension that shimmered between us, I liked it. It was exciting and invigorating.
Macgrath pushed off the door, dropped his arms to his sides, and crossed the short distance between us. My muscles grew tight as he leaned over me and placed his hands on the arms of my chair. Our faces were only a foot apart, close enough that I could see the emerald of his irises and the sunburst of gold that surrounded his pupils, spiking into the green like the points of a star. He also smelled of leather and soap and something else that I couldn’t place. Something earthier.
“If you think that locking me in this room with you will make me talk, you’re wrong. Being close to you, even trapped in a room with you, isn’t a punishment, Ava.” His gaze moved over my face, hesitating for a bit too long on my mouth. Then his lips quirked in a wicked half-smile. “It only gives me all sorts of interesting ideas.” He inhaled deeply and the amber in his irises glowed. He stared at me, his gaze probing and intense. “And I’d give anything to know what you’re thinking right now.”
Thinking? I couldn’t think. All I could do was feel. My body alternately throbbed and tingled, my fingertips itching with the need to touch him. Heat spread beneath my skin. I was quickly losing all semblance of control.
Then reason pierced the spell he’d woven around me. I was letting that stupid dream weaken my defenses. The Macgrath in that dream wasn’t the vampire standing before me. He was a fantasy, created by my subconscious. The real Macgrath, the one standing before me, was an enigma. His smiles weren’t as warm or genuine, and he carried darkness within him. He was dangerous and…thrilling in a different way.
I hope you enjoyed the excerpt!
