Happy Monday! I hope your week is getting off to a great start. Here's a dreamy little book moment from Crystal Tide to get your day going. This scene finds Kay in what she thinks is a hallucination brought on by a psychic's meddling. She's swept away to an ancient time, landing in the palace of King Amphere who believes her to be a present sent to him from the gods. Never mind that he happens to look an awful lot like her sexy captor, the damnable Xieran who's accused her of being a spy! Read on for a moment of romance.
Amphere’s eyes flicked around the space then came back to her. She sank further down into the pillows. He really did smile then... and moved closer, swallowing up the bare distance between them.
“It’s just a resting place,” he said, his voice low and silky.
“A resting place?”
“A place to rest,” he kneeled down on the floor, his strong thighs, golden and naked, parted the sides of his garment. His eyes swept the length of her, making her skin prickle all over.
“… among other things.”
Kay’s eyes widened.
His chest was so broad. All of the muscles on his torso and arms gleamed in the torchlight. Sweaty, she thought trying to bring up an appropriate amount of disgust. Dirty. Think dirty she told herself. All that did was bring to mind more lascivious thoughts. Sweat on him looked good. Salty. She licked her lips.
“Uh… I-I’m not tired,” she said.
His head dropped down. He looked up at her through his thick, dark lashes.
“That’s good. Neither am I.”
There you have it! Your Monday Moment in Romance. For more moments with Kay, Xieran and... ahem... King Amphere, pick up a copy of Crystal Tide today.
Desires and Passion are brewing in the Tides - as unexpected as a hurricane and as old as an ancient land.
“That’s the funny thing about will…sometimes your own bumps up against that of another’s.” ~Xieran Amphere, Crystal Tide
Devastated by the loss of both parents and running scared after a break-in at her home, Kay Laurens jumps on the first plane out of Denver heading south to Miami. There she meets up with, of all people, a love psychic for answers. On the tip of the Bermuda Triangle, she is swept up into the dark world of an ancient cult and sent on the ride of her life. Then her incense induced visions come to life in the form of an inter-world travelling, suspicious and sinfully hot immortal agent for Mt. Olympus.
Xieran has no memory of who he was before being stolen by Hermes. The Greek god uses him to enter Earth's sphere under the guise of an affluent art dealer in search of an elusive artifact which, if he can find, will win him his freedom. When his latest mission is brought up short by a female grad student breaking into his complex travel system, he can’t help but be suspicious. It makes no difference that he finds her more and more irresistible with each encounter. With demon outbreaks, nefarious characters working in the Underworld and a power struggle of epic proportions going on, no one can be trusted.
As they are thrown into the Tides together, Kay and Xieran set out on a whirlwind adventure, racing through the streets of Rome, Miami and even Western Australia to chase down the answers that will win them their freedom from the overbearing gods. Will they come to terms with destiny and conquer the evil taking over the Tides, or will they succumb to the passion growing between them?
