Welcome to the Halloween edition of My Sexy Saturday ~Don’t forget to click the link and keep hopping for a spooktastic selection of steamy fiction.
It’s been awhile since I participated, but I couldn’t resist the spooky theme. Also, it just happens my erotic fantasy, To Catch a Threeve, will be released this Tuesday, so I thought I’d share a selection of seven paragraphs in which Constable Axel Blackwood and Threeve Bryn Darrow “get to know each other”. Despite knowing perfectly well that threeves are dangerous and diabolical folk, Axel can’t help being attracted to the thief he’s just caught, who resembles Axel’s lost love, Liam.
He snorted and wriggled against his bonds. Nothing about his body language was like Liam. Liam had been graceful, easy, and relaxed in his strength. This sneak was strong, but more like a coiled snake, ready to strike.
Like a threeve, Axel thought. Drummond had suggested half-threeve. Was that even possible?
Now that he looked at the sneak with eyes adjusted to the dark, he noticed more threevish attributes. The large eyes were slanted, almost like a fox’s. The tips of his ears poked out of the thick hair, longer and pointier than any human’s. Had Liam looked like that?
“You’re a chatty one.” The sneak stretched out his spine and looked around. “Why do you hate threeves?”
“Why do you work for them? Why do you work their dark magic?”
“I asked first.”
To Axel’s irritation, the sneak smiled. It transformed him from strange forest creature to beautiful young man. Guard your heart, Axel.
Official Blurb for To Catch a Threeve ~ Release date October 28th ~
Axel Blackwood catches a thief and is astounded to see that he closely resembles Liam Alloway, the love he lost seven years ago in an attack by the evil woodland folk known as threeves. Axel suspects he’s fallen prey to dark magic, but can’t help becoming infatuated with his prisoner. He’s overwhelmed with the hope that he can at last bring his lost lover home, despite everything that warns him it’s all a diabolical trick.
Bryn Darrow, the half-threeve, half human orphan sent to trick Axel and rob him of much more than a simple gem finds himself equally as fascinated with his handsome human captor and the lure of someplace to call home, but he knows deep down that the constable is in love with a dangerous illusion. When he’s commanded by the threeves to murder Axel and steal a witch’s powerful grimoire, he’s forced to decide between the only family he’s ever known and the one person who might rescue him from a life of isolation and pain.
Will Axel and Bryn be forced into a deadly confrontation before they can discover the truth?
