There’s a Deadline Up Ahead

I have a deadline coming up fast! While I’m sure all of you are waiting with bated breath (shhhhh…just nod, smile, and let me live with that delusion for a little bit lol) for the ramblings of my mind, I have a manuscript I need to finish. Buuuut, just to wet your whistle, here is a short, unedited, and subject to change excerpt from The Veiled Path to Destiny~The Veil Book 2.

“I will not leave you unprotected when you seek solace from this new life I have brought you to.” Iauron explained. His large hands had cupped he side of her face. His blue eyes had sparked with a fire that never failed to draw her into their depths. He was a brilliant flame. She was a moth all too willing to have her wings singed by the heat of his gaze. Through him, she was reborn again and again.

She pulled back from the memory, yet his presence remained. It wrapped her in a cocoon of his warmth, infused within her body in such a way she knew she would never be alone. A hand reached up and skimmed the surface of her lips. She could smell him on her skin. Like Pavlov’s dogs or cats as the case may be, she instantly longed to rub her body against his. His kisses were an aphrodisiac, fueling a never satisfied hunger. His touch was a spark that set her body aflame with unquenchable desire. He was her addiction for which there was no 12-step program to recovery. She fought it even as she reveled in it.
