Excerpt

Hope was there in her features, under her skin, as relentless as she was.
“Yes.” The word left his mouth, sealing his future. “I will go after your uncle on Minister Knut’s estate of Aveyn.”
It was as if Aliena had received a blow. Her eyes widened and her mouth gaped open. She stood there, breathless for a few seconds, then jumped.
She landed in his arms before he could move away. The shock of her supple woman’s body suddenly meeting his own almost made him fall on his ass. The impact ran along his veins and arteries, skittering inside his bones, leaving a mark on the fabric of his very being.
He buried his nose inside the lush mass of her hair, inhaling her scent. Mating Venom dripped on his tongue in a steady flow, pushing fire down his body.
His hands closed around her waist, pressing Aliena against him, molding her to his body in all the right ways.
It would be so easy. He could take her right here, in front of her people, as his instinct told him to.
No.
Still holding her small waist between his fingers, he pushed her away from him. Aliena looked at him, surprise clear on her face.
“When do we leave?”
Kamal found himself stunned into silence. How could she think he would allow her to come along on such a dangerous mission? He shook his head, frowning at her.
“When do we leave? You’re getting that all wrong, Little Bird.” Shock gave way to anger when Aliena lifted her brows in defiance, crossing her arms over her chest and tilting her head at the same time. “You’re staying here, where you can do the most good. I’ll go hunt the humans on Minister Knut’s estate.”
His words seemed have an impact on Aliena, who unfolded her arms. Uncertainty spread across her features.
“I can’t leave my uncle’s rescue to you—to anyone. I can’t wait here like some damsel in distress.”
“Your place is here, with your family, your people. They need you to protect them. That idiot Martin cannot ensure their safety in the dangerous times to come.”
His words drew lines of understanding across Aliena’s face. He saw the exact moment where she accepted what he was saying, accepted her role in this.
“I will retrieve your uncle and bring him and the others back.”
Aliena held his stare, her pure eyes like windows to her soul. She nodded, the gesture simple, yet laden with the depth of a new trust she was putting in him. A few seconds later, he broke the contact, turning away to walk past his troops. Back to the Mellark, back to the only life he had known for over a decade.
I will come back for you. And then, I will take you.

About Mary Auclair

Mary Auclair
Mary grew up in the quiet peace of a small rural village in the heart of Quebec, Canada.
She spent her childhood chasing butterflies and catching frogs, playing in the mud and generally being as unladylike as she could. Her love of science led her to complete a mechanical engineering degree at the Ecole Polytechnique of Montreal, where she met the love of her life.
Years later, as she enjoyed the role of full time mom to her two wonderful children, she decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer.
She now write as much as her busy schedule allows to bring to life her inner world, filled with exotic planets, mysterious creatures and off course, hot, alpha heroes and the women who melt their hearts.
When she's not writing, she can be found in the garden, walking her dogs or playing with fire in her kitchen as a part time hit-or-miss chef.
She loves to hear from her readers, so don't be shy and drop her a line!
