Ladies and gents... Book 2 of the Spellbound series by Lola James has arrived!
And guess what?!
I get to share with you three excerpts from it! So sit back, relax and read on my friends...
“She knew I was a vampire.” I dropped my head as astonishment casted over Kevin’s face. “It is my fault she is with Hades, I’ll take that blame.” I swallowed the lump in my throat that formed around my next words. “Do it, take me this pain away from me!” Kevin pressed the stake hard to my chest, and I closed my eyes, preparing to die.
In a flash, Catherine tackled Kevin to the ground, knocking the stake out of his hands. Dawn screamed and I picked up the stake with the swiftest of movements and drove it through Catherine’s back. She turned to ash while still atop Kevin whose eyes widened in shock.
We looked at one another, both bewildered, in the moment before I offered my hand to help him from the floor. Dawn eased closer toward us. As Kevin brushed Catherine’s dust off him; then he picked up his stake, and returned it to his back pocket. Kevin stared at me for a long moment before he gave a nod. "For now, vampire."
I picked up a strawberry and ate it as I wondered: Why would Hades want me if he has a wife? The more I thought about it, the angrier I became. I wasn’t in the habit of sleeping with married men. I prepared to go to him, sick with the news that I was no more than a mistress. I turned to walk toward Hades’ office. I stood in the hallway in front of Hades’ office before placing my hand on the door. It was amazing how that the mildew smell had just become natural to me—I didn’t think twice about it anymore. I pushed open the door and walked in.
“I was waiting for you, my sweet,” Hades said the moment he saw me.
The anger I had felt dissipated at the look in his eye. He smiled as I walked slowly over to him behind the black glass desk. I outlined the edge with my finger before I took my place in Hades’ waiting lap.
Ben and I stood alone in the hallway as I moved closer to him. The lust from our kiss still lingered and thick between us.
“Shhh.” His finger touched my lips, stopping my ramble of thoughts. “We have only a short time, and I need to plead my case to you so let me show rather than tell you why it should be me you pick for eternity.”
I had no words. I swallowed the lump in my throat and nodded my head as he took my hand intertwining his fingers with mine. We walked to the nearest door that was Hades office, once inside he closed the door behind us.
His lips touched mine, and my free hand fisted a hand full of his dark hair, deepening his light kiss into something more carnal. The faint taste of blood was still on his mouth and it turned me on.
