Today's teaser comes from the story that I am currently working on, Blood Moon, Book two in the Love and Blood Series. Since I am working on this through #NaNoWriMo the story is getting done quickly. I haven't had a chance to really do any editing so please bear with me. On another note you also get to see the new cover. So, you get a teaser and a cover reveal all wrapped into one.
Anyway, here it is the second part the the story that many of you have loved.
“You need to sleep, Dominick.” I laugh as he nuzzles his face against the back of my neck. “It’s going to be night soon and you’ll be tired when you have to leave.”
“I’ll be fine.” He insists.
I sigh softly while reaching my hand up to stroke my fingers through Nix’s hair beside me.
He was sound asleep along with Kane.
“I’m kind of jealous of the connection that you have with him.” Dominick states softly as he pushes himself up to look over my shoulder.
“There’s no reason to be jealous.” I insist. “Our connection goes so much deeper.”
“Yes, it does but it doesn’t compare to what you have with him.” Dominick argues lightly.
“Either way I still love you both equally.” I reply as I turn to look up at Dominick. “I love you, I love Kane, and I love Nix. Each of you has a part of my heart.”
“You should tell them that. Nix needs to hear you say those words to him.” Dom stresses.
“I will when the time is right.” I reply with a soft sigh.
A moment of silence passes by as Dominick tenderly touches my cheek.
He sighs. “I don’t want to leave you.”
“I don’t want you to go either.” I reply.
“We won’t be gone long.” He promises. “The last war that I fought with the humans didn’t last long. The humans always severely underestimate what we’re capable of.”
“All it takes is a good show of force and they’ll retreat.” He adds confidently.
“After what my father did to me do you really believe that it will still be that easy?” I question.
“I don’t know, but at least we know what we’re up against.” He replies.
He had a point. They weren’t going into this fight blindly but there was no telling what other secrets that my father had that could be used against a supernatural army.
I couldn’t help but fear that I would lose one of them in this battle.
“You’re not going to lose anyone.” Dominick replies before glancing at Kane and Nix. “I will do whatever it takes to keep them safe for you.”
“Make sure you keep Nick safe for Tinsley too.” I reply.
He nods. “I was already planning to do that.”
Without warning Nix turns on his side before reaching out for me. He pulls me away from Dominick and snuggly against his body.
I laugh lightly as he begins purring.
Dominick shakes his head in amusement. “What are we going to do with both a dog and cat?”
I shrug while grinning. “I don’t know but we’ve already given them a home. They’re ours now no matter what happens.”
He snorts. “You are prefect.”
After a moment I pat the bed beside me. “Sleep, Dom.”
He nods and then lies down before closing his eyes. I watch him as his chest stops rising and falling as he quickly falls into a deep sleep.
Moments later I close my eyes before the darkness of sleep pulls me into its depths.
