So I thought I’d try this for the first time since my idea for Quote of the Day on Facebook is bombing due to my totally lagging memory!
This is from my WIP Unbreak Me, a tale for the Spellbound Treasures shared world coming soon to Pink Petal Books. My hero is Major Marcus “Ren” Renniger. The heroine is Captain Tait Boland who is supposed to be dead. They are Pythian Elite warriors who use magic in conjunction with regular fighting skills. Ren thinks Tait betrayed him and sent his unit to their death.
Tait didn’t know what had clued him in as to her presence but Pythian warriors, especially those of the Elite, had skills and senses far above ordinary soldiers, and the man before her was the best of the best.
As he slowly turned to face her, she knew his awareness of her presence was personal. He didn’t just realize that someone stood there. He knew exactly who she was. Of course, the fact that they’d been lovers for five years and comrades in arms for eight probably gave him a heightened awareness of her despite the Alizar cloak that hid her from his hawk-like gaze.
“Are you here to finish the job?” he asked harshly.
