Excerpt From Book 1
She stared at him. The warm night air stuck to her skin, pressing in on her, making it hard to breathe. All their lives, she and her sisters had kept their gifts to themselves, feeling like they were freaks of nature. Were there others like them in the world? Could she trust Gunnar? She had met him barely an hour ago. He could be a lunatic. Regret and shame slammed into her. Why did I act like that in the club? Had he put some kind of spell on her? She certainly didn’t make a habit of public make-out sessions. She swallowed hard. “What are you?”
“Ah-ah, ladies first, Nicole. But I’ll give you a small hint.”
He lifted his hand. A tiny orange light popped into the air, dancing in the center of his upturned palm. The light grew bigger, until it was the size of an apple. It glowed and bobbed slightly, then went out as quickly as it had appeared.
She didn’t even care that her mouth was hanging open. “What was that?”
“It’s a useful weapon.”
“Well, it’s particularly effective on the lesser demons, but–”
“What are you talking about?” she yelled. “You just made fire appear in your hand! And you’re not hurt!”
“I created it. It won’t hurt me.”
“Okaaay. That was a very cool magic trick.” She edged backward.
He was at her side in a flash. “Uh-uh.”
“Gunnar, you’re scaring me.”
“I told you I won’t hurt you. And from what I’ve seen, you’re not entirely defenseless.”
Completely unnerved, Nicole’s legs shook. She felt like she had just fallen down the rabbit hole, and there was no climbing back up. Ever. She didn’t know if it was real or not, but Gunnar made fire appear in his hand. She instinctively knew that if he wanted to, he could truly hurt her. The rip-her-to pieces kind of hurt. She had already tried to fight him, with no success—now it was time for flight.
Whirling, she ran in the direction of the club. She managed to get all of ten feet from him when he grabbed her around the waist and twisted them both in mid-air. They hit the ground. He absorbed most of the impact himself, then rolled and pinned her beneath him.
Seconds stretched out as he studied her. He relaxed his hold on her a fraction, but she still couldn’t move under his massive bulk. “Nicole,” he said softly. “There are many things I want to do to you, but hurting you is not on the list.”
She sucked in a breath at his bold statement. I don’t want to die here, like this, with a fire-conjuring madman. Fighting hadn’t worked. Flight hadn’t worked. She didn’t want to end up dead in the park, so that left her with two options—distract him or start talking.
She gazed up at him with wary eyes. He was so handsome. A lock of dark hair fell over his forehead, and his lips looked way too kissable. Dangerous. She clenched her teeth and shoved the jumble of thoughts from her mind, disgusted with herself. He had her trapped, pinned on the ground, for heaven’s sake. She had to figure out a way to get away from him, not closer to him, like her traitorous body wanted.
