TAKEN BY SIN releases a week from today! How about an excerpt?
HE’S THE SEXY DEMON HUNTER WHO JUST SAVED HER LIFE. NOW SHE’S ABOUT TO SHOW HIM WHAT SALVATION’S REALLY ABOUT.
It’s a mission that could cost him his career and his life. But the woman he just rescued—his lover for one unforgettable night—has something Dalton desperately needs. That’s why the fearless demon hunter is risking everything to spirit Isabelle to a secret hideaway in the Louisiana bayou. Saving her is one thing. Banishing the demon inside her is another. Especially when this gorgeous seductress brings out the devil in him.
Isabelle can see the passion roaring inside Dalton—and it both frightens and arouses her. Is Dalton her enemy or her savior? All she knows is he’s beyond seductive and igniting all sorts of conflicting feelings. All Dalton knows is that they’re both in big trouble—hunted by demons and demon hunters alike in an all-out war for survival. As their pursuers close in and passion overtakes them both, Dalton must make a stunning choice…. Caught between sin and salvation, between darkness and light, will he make the ultimate sacrifice to save the woman he loves?
Dalton stood over a brick grill. He looked up and smiled. “Have a good nap?”
She slid into a chair and pulled her feet up. “I never sleep well. What are you cooking?”
“Fish and some vegetables.”
“Anything you need me to help with?”
“No. I’ve got it covered. They’re almost done. You can pour us each a glass of wine. It’s uncorked and on the table.”
He motioned with his head to the picnic table next to her, where he’d spread out their plates and glasses. She grabbed the bottle from the cooler and poured wine into the two glasses. Instead of taking a seat back on the chair, she stayed where she was at the table in the darkened corner. She could watch Dalton this way and he couldn’t see her.
He kept his attention on the food, ﬂipping, staring, not once turning to see what she was doing. He was deﬁnitely focused. She liked the way he wore his hair—a little long, the kind of hair a woman could sink her ﬁngers into and hold on.
Her stomach tightened, her thoughts drifting to the bedroom, to sliding along cool sheets with a hot man— with this man. Naked, sweaty, Dalton moving inside her.
She loved his mouth. His bottom lip was full, and when he’d kissed her that one time his kiss had been ﬁlled with deliberate, focused passion and determination. Dalton was a ﬁerce lover. She wanted that again.
She rose and moved toward him, her breathing stilted, sweat beading between her breasts. Her nipples grew tight, her sex moistening as animal heat consumed her. She lifted her arm, reached for him.
“I know, you’re probably starving. I’m just scooping it off the ﬁre now. You ready?”
She blinked, realized she was only inches from Dalton, but had no idea how she’d gotten there. Dumbfounded, she lowered her arm and nodded. “Yes.”
He lifted his lips in a smile. “Great. Let’s sit down.”
Swallowing past the dry desert in her throat, she followed him to the table and sat, grabbed the glass of wine, and took a long drink. Then another.
She remembered watching Dalton. Then…nothing. No, that’s not right. There had been something. What was it?
“You’re not eating.”
She looked up at Dalton, then down at the plate, not even aware it had been set in front of her. “Oh. I’m sorry. Of course.” She picked up her fork and moved it around the plate.
“Nothing. This looks wonderful.” She made an attempt to eat. She’d been really hungry earlier. She remembered that much. The ﬁsh had smelled so good. What happened to her? Where had she gone in those brief moments that she’d lost time?
