Royce Zarides has accepted his hand dealt by fate. He’s loved and left far too many women, in the bedroom that is. But one kiss from Belinda Raine Ignis was all it took for his eyes to open. Is she really the woman meant for him and his brother Ronin? Or will history only repeat itself? That’s the million dollar question he doesn’t want to answer.
Ronin does not believe that Belinda is for him and his brother. But one night with her isn’t enough. Even when he sees her for who and what she really is, Ronin still has a hard time expressing his fears and emotions where Belinda is concerned, and time is running out now that she’s to ascend to the status of Matria of the Phoenix Enclave.
Belinda (Bells) Ignis is good at ignoring men. She’s had her share of heartache. Jilted at the altar by her first love, she’s sworn all men off for good. Her mother and Matria of her community has other plans in mind, as well as the Zarides brothers. When faced with the heated glances of Ronin and the smooth tongue of Royce, what’s a girl to do?
The clock is ticking down for certain members of the Shadow Unit. Draven assumed dead, leaves a sour taste in every ones mouth. Jes’ new found abilities make for a great addition to the team. But when things seem to settle, they only get worse, as the team sets out to discover the origins of Mr. Black and the notorious Red Sun Organization. Secrets are uncovered and deals are made that result in a deadly blow to all involved.
“I need my shirt,” he said moving towards her. He’d just had a shirt.
She tried to move out of the way, but he continued moving forward. The hall was narrow, so she could do nothing but be backed into his room. There wasn’t enough space. He was too close for her own comfort. Hands clenched at her sides, Bells found herself leaning forward. He made her squirm, made her itch, and dammit he made her want things she had no business thinking about. His arm reached over her shoulder, the movement caused her to step deeper into the closet. He wasn’t honestly trying to reach the shirt attached to its hanger. No, what he was doing was purposely closing her in, cornering her as if she was a scared rabbit. The heat from his body was throwing off an enticing smell of man mixed with lust. She couldn’t place the scent, it wasn’t store bought. It was natural, all him. It was lulling and smooth, but rough at the same time. It was a smell that was quickly becoming an addiction for her. It got stronger as he moved closer. The air from the ceiling fan did nothing to stop its potency. The sultry and decadent scent rose to a level that would have her dropping her shorts to her ankles.
As he looked down at her with hunger, black satin sheets and lazy kisses is the image that collected in her brain. She saw herself sliding on them while he kissed her with long slow swipes of his lips. She absently licked her own lips in preparation, but quickly ducked her head so he wouldn’t get any ideas.
There is really not much to say… I love to write, read, and listen to music. My attempt at a music career sadly ended at the Apollo one warm night in May! LOL (Side note: I was not booed just outdone by two munchkins rapping to Biggy Smalls but they were good!)
Military brat extraordinaire; have traveled to a lot of interesting places.
The very first time I put pen to paper in story fashion, was in 6th grade. It was called The Case of the Missing Pepperoni.
It was a cute mystery where all the ingredients and shop appliances came to life when the store owner closed up for the evening.
