Relax, close your eyes . . . and dream. Nine tales, nine sensual dreams of enchantment, wanderlust and lovers’ longings, of searching and finding; these dreams tell of birds of fire, curses that lie like bridges between night and day, and hunger for sweet seduction.
Excerpt 1 from "Fortune's Song"
“Of all of them, you are the only one who has ever come to me willingly,” he said, his midnight eyes boring into hers. She could see the darkness draining from the irises, leaving just silver, strange and unnatural. She had known that he was other, but only now did she fully grasp what that meant.
She opened her mouth to speak, but her voice wouldn’t obey her.
“You came willingly,” he said again, reaching for her with his right hand. His palm came to rest on her neck, pulled her closer, not in a needy way, just steady, steady, ever so gently, until her wordless lips met his.
Her lips were parted still, and his tongue caressed hers, exploring and tasting, gently at first, but very soon hard and insistent.
“Willingly,” he said between kisses. His hands, until then just holding her, began to explore, sliding down her spine and lower still, cupping her behind.
She realized her hands were holding him also, if less tightly. And she wondered why she wasn’t holding him life vest tight. After all, was he not the most gorgeous man she had ever met? So what if he was old as song and cursed by the King of Shadows?
She decided to take what she wanted, pulling his shirt off like an explorer pushing back the borders of false maps to discover a new continent.
