Excerpt:

He’s gorgeous in an underwear model sort of way. At least until you reach his eyes. When the light reflected off them, I almost stepped back. They’re pale green, almost startling if you don’t look into their cold, lifeless depths. Pools of darkness lurked in the round orbs, so strong, it scared the fucking shit out of me. I’ve grown up around deadly men, but none left me trembling and wanting to escape the intensity of just a gaze.

I make a frustrated sound deep in my throat. I need to escape so I never have to look into his eyes again. Pounding the metal loop in the floor with my foot only adds to the raw flesh already there. He’s going to kill me for something my brother did. The worthless, evil, blood kin I’ve dreamed of killing for years. If only I were stronger emotionally and physically. Or maybe not. Given the chance, I’ll kill the man holding me.

I’ve thought about my own death so many times through the years I lost track. I shouldn’t be resisting the inevitable end to my life. My brother’s plans for me would pale in comparison. He’s told me often enough that I’m nothing more than a breeding machine to form better alliances.

Being given to one of the men my brother makes alliances with would be a nightmare worse than death and it’s all I’ve had to look forward to since my sixteenth birthday. That’s when the earnest threats began. To die for my brother’s sins is an ironic twist to a fucked up life I wish I couldn’t claim.

Guest Post with Holly S. Roberts:

Why Romance?

I breathe romance. Maybe it comes from marrying my high school sweetheart who I fell in love with at the age of twelve. He took a little longer to convince. That was many, many years ago and we’re still in love. Before I became a police officer, I owned a bookstore in Phoenix, AZ. Romance books kept my children fed and clothed and I can’t say that about any other genre. I don’t care what the story is or what genre it’s written for, if there’s no relationship, I don’t want to read it. Call me a snob and I’ll agree. Romance doesn’t just make the world go around, it’s in every part of our lives. Anyone who disses on romance is dissing on their unsatisfied life. Romance readers are the most well-adjusted group on the planet. You want to argue? Bring it.
