Excerpt:

Standing on the balcony right outside Penny’s door, Seth reached down and wrapped his hand around hers.

 “Would you like me to walk you in?”

 Pursing her lips into a smile, she replied, “I’m sure Braden’s on the couch already so…”

 Not wanting the moment to pass him by, he offered, “Would you like to walk me in, then?”

 “Sure,” with a sweet expression on her face.

Leading her to his door, Seth let go of her hand and unlocked it allowing her to go in first.

Once they were both inside, he closed his door and turned to her. Taking her hand in his again, he lifted it, lightly smiling at her tattoo. Two interlocking hearts, one upside down and the other, right side up.

 “Did it hurt?” he asked focusing on the space in the center of both hearts.

 Drawing in a slow breath, she whispered, “Yes.”

Lifting her wrist higher, he leaned down and carefully touched his lips to the center where there was no ink just bare skin directly in the center of one heart pointing toward him and the other to her.

 Seth placed his thumb in the center of her tattoo where his lips had just been as he looked down at her softly sharing, “I can feel your heart beat.”

Penny let out a short breath as she closed her eyes tilting her chin up towards him.

Keeping his gentle hold on her wrist with one hand, Seth could feel Penny’s pulse quicken as he slowly brushed his fingers against her cheek and down the side of her neck with the other. He moved closer drawing out the moment as long as possible, just in case this was his one and only chance with her and it never happened again. As he watched her lips part in anticipation, Seth closed his eyes and touched his lips to hers.

True to her nature, Penny’s lips were warm and sweet as they moved against his. There was comfort in the feel of her smooth skin under his fingertips and the flavor of her lips when he took the opportunity to taste them. She was the cream and sugar that soothed and sweetened all the doubt and anxiety in Seth’s otherwise embittered life. And he could only imagine what feeling the rest of her would be like.

Synopsis

Immortal Descendants are disappearing and seventeen-year-old Clocker Saira Elian is next on the list…

Saira and Archer’s romantic London summer is shattered by the bold kidnappings of Immortal Descendants. It’s clear Mongers want control of the Descendant Families, and when they target a powerful Shifter, there’s no doubt they will eliminate anyone who stands in their way.

A split in time could be the cause of this new Monger aggression, and Saira, Archer, Ringo and young Shifter, Connor travel back to medieval France to track down their arch-nemesis Bishop Wilder – the obvious candidate for mayhem. One dangerous world is exchanged for another as Saira and her friends emerge on the gloomy streets of Paris in 1429 to find it besieged by marauding wolves. And wolves may be the least of their problems when they encounter a fanatical peasant girl who will be known to modern history as Joan of Arc.

Crossing the time stream to repair it has dropped them into the heart of the Hundred Years War on the eve of an epic battle, where friends are in danger, allies are enemies, and foes are lethal. To end the deadly game of cat and mouse with Wilder once and for all, Saira must confront her greatest challenge yet: the truth about her changing Nature.

Teasers

“I’d been resisting the idea of arming you in your bed, but now I think you should keep these under your pillow.” I grinned, savoring the weight of the daggers in my hand. “Means you can’t sneak in.” “No, I just have to be faster than you.” “Yeah, good luck with that.”

***

I smiled. “Really? Your eyes track her through a room. You find every excuse in the book to be next to her. And when you actually do let yourself accidentally touch her, it’s with so much wonder and awe, it feels … worshipful.”

****

“And in the end, when it was completely out of my hands, I finally surrendered to the reality of what it meant to love you. And it truly was surrender or break into a thousand pieces every day.” He took a deep breath. “Fear paralyzed me, but you, my beautiful woman, are always moving. So I had to break free of the fear to run with you, and since that day, and every day I choose not to fear, I have known more freedom and happiness than I ever imagined was possible.”

***

Archer, Ringo, Charlie, Connor and I became a family on the river Seine. We teased each other, tried to make each other laugh, told stories, and shared secrets. And mostly, we healed.
