Happy Book Teaser Tuesday everyone! Here is very romantic little bit from my favorite would-be villain couple. Azarus and Odile, the Sorcerer and the Swan. Oh, the things that man says to her.... swoon worthy!
“firelight becomes you.”
Odile felt a flush from more than the heat come over her.
“It is the same with you, my lord. Though, like you, I prefer the shadows.”
His hands traced the curve of her cheek. Then he leaned in and kissed her mouth. Odile opened to him readily. The smell of the Elder branches combined with his male scent, tempting her to breathe him in. Her hands roved over his chest, wrapping behind his neck to bring him closer. Their bodies met, Azarus pulling them together tightly while he plundered her lips. He searched out all of her secrets with his tongue. There was no hiding in the dark from this man, he knew it too well. He was the master of it.
Finally, they pulled apart for breath.
“Aye, right you are, dark maiden. We both are of the shadows—night creatures together. Our fire lies inside, don’t fear it. We can burn in secret, the way you like, for only each other.”
She smiled, wishing once again that these rites they acted were for more than just show. Every black thing she’d been taught to hate about herself, Azarus brought to the light. At first she thought he exposed her but now she knew the truth. Each moment with him healed her, forced who she really was to the fore. Like the primitive sounds of the villagers’ music, he wove the frayed strands of her soul together in a song so wildly beautiful it could never be heard by anyone’s ears but his own. She’d burn for him forever.
Enter the dark, seductive world of the black swan today.
