Welcome to Teaser Tuesday.
In my upper teen paranormal thriller/romance, Challenging Destiny, Logan Ragsdale and his younger sister, Ariana, have been marked, Chosen to be unwilling participants in a war between angels and demons. Together, they must outsmart both Heaven and Hell if they hope to remain human and avoid being pawns in a coming war.
This excerpt is from Logan’s point-of-view. Enjoy!
She put her hands on my waist and rose to her tiptoes. “It’s a sweet thought,” she said, her breath warm on my lips. “But my fate has already been sealed.”
Her perfume seemed to wrap around me, filling me with the urge to pull her closer even though my brain screamed for me to step back. I wondered if this was how the people I made suggestions to felt—compelled to please me—because right then I wanted to sweep Kira up in my arms and kiss her. Although something inside of me clung to the thought that I needed to stay focused on why I was there, every other fiber of my being coaxed me to just let down my guard and enjoy being in a secluded place with a pretty girl.
Kira brushed her lips against mine.
“I’m not what I seem,” she said in a husky whisper.
She kissed me before I could reply. Her lips were too hot against mine. My mind exploded with images of burning rivers and pillars made of bone. Lifeless trees reached out of the ground like the hands of the dead. Fire and brimstone rained down on the living. I could hear the screams of people I couldn’t see and smelled decaying flesh. Nausea overcame me, breaking the spell I was under. I shoved Kira away, doubled over at the waist, and threw up.
“Like I said, don’t trust me,” she warned.
