And I have teasers for Fire in the Darkness by Stacey Marie Brown, if you are one of the few who hasn’t read this book/series yet.
Fire in the Darkness Teasers & Excerpts:
I suddenly felt Eli’s nails grow, breaking through the fabric of my hoodie. “Run to the car and get the hell out of here.” He shoved the car keys in my pocket before pushing me to the side. His face was already half changed as he lunged for Drauk. I couldn’t move, engrossed in watching Eli’s body transform into a Dark Dweller.Eli had changed only partially in front of me before and in darkness. I hadn’t been able to see him change when he fought the phooka so I’d never seen the whole transformation. It was disturbing, fascinating, and somehow beautiful all at the same time.
Mesmerized, I watched his clothes tear. His body curved and twisted into another shape. A sleek, black creature emerged around the size of a large panther. His presence made everything feel dwarfed by comparison. Every muscle moved tightly under the midnight-colored coat. His jaw was longer than a wild cat’s, with razor sharp teeth. His spine was lined with small, sharp, spiked horns. There was also something about him that reminded me of a wolf. But neither panther nor wolf seemed to define him. His movements were graceful and stealthy. A deep, vibrating growl shook the room. Nails curved like sickles, ripped at the floorboards as he moved closer to Drauk. His eyes flared red.
“Don’t touch me,” I spouted angrily, but I didn’t move, my body pulsating with tension.
“Stop me.” As he moved in closer, I could feel the heat resonating off his body. He paused for a moment, waiting for me to act on his words. I didn’t. Grabbing the back of my head, he tugged a handful of my hair back so I had to look up at him. Breathing in shakily, conflicting emotions of hate and desire raged inside me. Fire burned in his pupils, making him look even more feral.
He suddenly pressed his body into mine, his lips coming down on mine with a savage hunger. I felt dizzy; my need for him was desperate and raw. His hand locked on the back of my head tighter as I pulled him by his belt loops closer to me. We were both fierce and demanding as we kissed. Biting. Tugging. Wanting.
