Happy Book Teaser Tuesday! One of my favorites from Crystal Tide, Tides of Atlantis.
A breathless minute passed. Xieran could barely hold himself back from rushing through the crowd of cultists because he knew what was coming. Karina, they had her.
He could feel her presence, sense her like he could the others but it was a different kind of sensing. He’d always be able to feel her, that he knew. He remembered the way he’d felt the first time she’d ripped into the water vault and smashed into him. It wasn’t the same sense he got from wicked spirits. What he got from her was different. This was a fire inside of him that only she brought to life. It was love. He loved her. She was his and he’d know her, feel her, anywhere. It was love. He loved her.
Still rocking under the powerful realization he’d just made, he shook with rage at what came next.
Down through the group walked four men. They carried a wooden slab between them supported by long poles over their shoulders. Karina was strapped to the board, naked, her eyes glazed. They’d drugged her. Xieran’s hands clenched into fists. He jerked forward to spring out of the cave, but Krav held him back.
“Wait,” the serpent said.
Xieran glared like he would kill him but then Krav pointed to the dais. Two guards stood on either side. They both held long sickle swords across the fronts of their bodies. She’d be killed immediately if he went rushing in.
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?
