Welcome to Sexy Snippets and Weekend Writing Warriors, where authors share 7-8 lines/sentences of a book or work in progress.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been sharing the build up to Talia and Hayden’s first kiss. Now it’s time to roll back a layer. In this snippet, Hayden is on the phone talking to the Vampire clan leader. Don’t you love when hidden agenda’s are revealed? Enjoy.
He ran one hand through his hair. “I’ll do it. Don’t worry. I understand its importance.” And the depth of the betrayal it entailed. He was going to curse Talia with the one thing she’d fought all her life to avoid.
“She may forgive you in time.”
“No, she won’t.” Her hatred, like his regret, would know no bounds.
“One woman’s anger is a small price to pay.”
And one man’s heart.
On the night of the full moon, any male shifter can call the Trials to race against Talia Orion, alpha of the united wolf-eagle clans. Clan law requires Talia to marry the winner of the Trials, a grueling twenty-mile marathon through dangerous, rugged terrain. Talia, the product of an unhappy, political alliance masquerading as a marriage, trains obsessively to ensure she avoids her parents’ fate. Her newest vampire trainer, Hayden Mitchell, makes her powerful even as he knocks down her defenses, and finds his way into her heart. Hayden has loved Talia since the first moment he saw her. As the destined ruler of the vampire clan, he has another agenda to politically unite Talia’s clans with his own—what Talia fears most, and will never forgive him for.
