Happy Scintillating Sunday. Today I’m sharing a few paragraphs from my paranormal romance, Dark Fantasies. I’m giving you a glimpse into an average conversation between two half incubus/ half vampire brothers, Kelan and Jackson. One is more beast than man and he’s having a hard time pretending to be human for his mate. The other wants nothing to do with mating. Enjoy.
“I need you to keep an eye on Ashley and see if she does anything to make you think she remembers me.”
“Oh no, not doing that.”
“Come on Jack.”
“There’s almost nothing I wouldn’t do for you bro. If you kill someone, I’ll help you bury the body. If you hurt someone, I’ll help you clean up the mess. If you end up going to war with these witches, I’ll fight by your side. But I will not go near your mate as long as there is air in her body.”
“I’ve seen how demons act when they have a mate. If you smell her scent on me you’re going to get pissed. You saw how Devin acted over Alyssa. The only thing we did was sit her outside so we could talk to him and the dude tried to kill me. I’m not going through that with you. In a few days your blood will be out of her system and you can compel her on your own. Until then, you keep an eye on her yourself. Just don’t let her see you and don’t drink from her again or let her drink from you.”
“I don’t trust myself around her.”
“Not my problem.”
“I could hurt her again.”
“Again, not my problem.”
“Jackson, I could kill her.” He hated saying that out loud.
“If you do, call me and I’ll help you get rid of the body. Until then, leave me out of it.”
One kiss was all it took.
Between work, family and her ex-boyfriend, Ashley Blakely is completely stressed out. She doesn’t have time to write in her fantasy diary or compete in the annual ‘fantasy wish’ competition her and her sisters have going. The only thing she wants for Christmas is normalcy.
All hope of a normal Christmas… or life… fly out the window the moment she’s kissed by Kelan Grant. Now she’s swept up in a whirlwind of romance, seduction and danger. She wants no part of this new life. Yet once she finds out that her sisters and her best friend are in jeopardy, she will do whatever it takes to keep them safe. Even allow herself to be kidnapped and handcuffed by a devil in disguise.
Dr. Kelan Grant always keeps his word. The moment he lays eyes on Ashley, he vows she will be his for eternity. He doesn’t care that his brother is mated to her sister and wants to keep their real heritage a secret from the Blakely family. Kelan will do whatever it takes to claim his bride.
Kidnapping her is the easy part. Winning her heart is going to take some strategic planning. But between the dark angels stalking him and Ashley’s constant need to break every item in his home, Kelan is having a hard time romancing the woman who he feels already belongs to him.
Will he get the eternity with Ashley he’s envisioned? Or will his enemies snatch her from his grasp and awaken the monster he tries to hide?
