It’s been a couple of months since I did the last MFRW Book Hooks post, but I’m picking up where I left off with Tova’s Dragon, second in my Kingdoms and Legends series. In this excerpt, my hero, Kane, finds an unexpected temptation.
“What brings you here, daughter of earth?”
Kane stared down at the woman who had sought shelter in his cave. He’d sensed her fear of the storm and used his powers to guide her here, but what was he supposed to do with her now? No one knew he’d returned to Velosia, or did they? Despite the possible danger, he welcomed the company after weeks of solitude in his cave.
He knelt and ran his hands over her limbs to be sure she had no broken bones. Good. He felt her pulse and found it strong. But her skin was cold, her breathing shallow, and her magic weak. That she was an earth mage, he had no doubt. He’d heard her pleas to the goddess, sensed her connection to the earth. But by the gods of fire and sky, he’d seen her deflect a lightning bolt aimed right at her. He’d never heard of an earth mage capable of such a feat.
“Who are you, my lady guest?” he murmured.
He picked her up and carried her to his chamber. She needed warmth and time to heal. She was a nice armful, round in all the places a woman should be round, with a fair face and a mass of rich brown hair. His body stirred to life. If she were amenable, he knew just how to make her feel better and replenish her powers—an act of healing that would also be a pleasure.
He lowered her to his bed of furs on the floor of the cave and removed her sturdy leather boots. Though she dressed like a boy, nothing could disguise her womanly curves. He removed her tunic and stripped off her wet shirt and breeches. Her skin was like flawless ivory. He swallowed hard and piled furs on top of her. She was a temptation he hadn’t counted on.
