Her eyes opened and she looked. His hard-edged features were raw, but his eyes had cleared, and they were… Steady. Adamant. Bedrock.
“You will never lose me, faerie,” he said point-blank into her upturned face. “I love you too much.”
Then he pushed his pelvis against her one last time in a slow, hard, voluptuous grind, and the explosion of pleasure was so intense it seared her soul as he destroyed her again. God, she adored him. He was such a walking, talking holocaust of a man.
“Tricks, what the hell? Seriously.”
“I’m gonna be Queen, you know,” she said. “You gotta stop calling me Tricks. It makes me sound like a circus clown. And I don’t think I’ll be a highness for long, so you should practice calling me your majesty.” She hiccupped and waved a hand in the air. “You may begin.”
“I notice how you’re ignoring the important part of what I said,” Tiago told her. He squatted and suddenly his upside-down face was in front of hers. “So I’ll repeat: what the hell?”
She asked, “Has anybody ever told you, you look a lot like Dwayne Johnson?”
He scowled. “Who the hell is Dwayne Johnson?”
He tried to take the vodka bottle away from her. She clung to it.
“You know, The Rock? Hot, sexy football player–wrestling guy turned movie actor? Only ... you’re a whole lot meaner.”
Then not twenty yards in front of her a gigantic bird of prey with a thirty-foot wingspan plummeted down. For one split second he was caught full in the headlights of the SUV, enormous wings splayed high in the air and razorlike sword-long talons outstretched. He was shaped like a golden eagle, but his color was a dark sooty black.
He wrapped both arms tight around her and crushed her back against his chest. Here was the necessary place. Now that he had reached it, he said, “Of course. Now I understand.” For the first time in his very long existence, Tiago knew what it meant to come home.
“That is not an adequate response, faerie,” he growled. His Power lay in the room, a heavy brooding presence. “I require a series of words strung together that make coherent sentences.”
Tiago Black Eagle, a Wyr warrior and leader of the Wyr warriors has been assigned to travel and protect Tricks when she returns to her home to reclaim her throne.
The two have a definite chemistry but it's not going to be an easy road to travel for them. The elder races are not keen to have their future queen mate with a wyr. I thought he was pretty awesome ...how he was prepared to do anything to make Niniane happy....what matter the most was that he loved her and he cared for her happiness and safety above all else....
This story has a lot of intrigue, and politics between all the different Elder races, action packed, humour, suspense......and romance too......
