And now, for your reading pleasure, an excerpt of VERUM (Nocte Trilogy #2):

VERUM_frontDare pushes the bench back, and he walks straight for me.  My heart pounds as he bends, his lips close enough to graze my neck.

I remember those lips.  The way they feel soft, yet firm.  The way he tastes of spearmint.

“You smell like apples.”  His whisper is low.  I close my eyes for a scant second, because an apple is what destroyed Eden.

I open my eyes.

“I’m sorry I was rude earlier.  This is just so goddamned hard for me.”

I know.

God, I know. 

“Meet me in the garden tonight and I’ll make it up to you. Midnight.”

I glance up at him and I’m brave, but my bravery will get me eaten.  Whether he wants to be or not, he’s a wolf.

And I’m a lamb.

Dare walks away, because it doesn’t matter to him what anyone thinks.

Dare does what he wants.

He lives free.
