Reviews Excerpts

Dreamwalker coverDamon Venizélos is an incubus — a dreamwalker trained by the government to assassinate people through their dreams, although he prefers to seduce women in their sleep. Aurora diScipio is a lamia — a born shapeshifter — and a master thief who delights in a challenge. For his next mission, Damon needs a thief and Rory is just the woman for him — if only he can catch her.

Rory is more than a match for Damon. But with a nuke missing and thousands of lives on the line, he’ll do everything in his power, use all his seductive prowess, to get her right where he wants her. Even if it means risking his heart.

Excerpts

“Looking for this?” The deep growl sounded from the depths of shadow behind a tall bush, almost as if it were part of the night. A bodiless hand held out her grapnel, the same one she’d anchored on one of the crenels on the darkest side of the museum, preset for a quick getaway.

With the barest scuff of heel, the Adonis of the park emerged into the half-light, a slight quirk of his lips giving him a triumphant air. He was dressed in dark clothes, his long hair tied back in a low, loose ponytail.

Rory’s nipples beaded in welcome as sensual awareness zinged her core. Even as she berated herself silently, she couldn’t deny he looked wonderful. If he weren’t a Fed out to get her—which was the only possible reason for his presence—she wouldn’t hesitate to take him as a lover.

He coiled her rope along the shank of the grapnel and tied it off neatly, guaranteeing that even if she managed to take it from him, she couldn’t deploy it with any speed—certainly not quickly enough to escape.

“Maybe.” Rory searched the shadows of the rooftop garden, looking for museum security and finding none. He was alone and wasn’t making any moves to call for support. Why was that?

Dismissing the question as irrelevant, she darted back, heading for the door to draw him away from her egress point. She didn’t plan on going back inside, but he couldn’t know that. If he wanted to capture her himself, he’d have to stop her.

He took the bait, chasing her in silence, the slight thuds of his boots the only sounds he made. She hadn’t been far off when she’d labeled him a predator.

Her traitorous body thrilled to his pursuit, a definite wetness creeping down her thighs. Rory could feel her labia swelling, her strides rubbing the damp lips together in sensual friction. Her unruly imagination titillated her with a scene of caveman sex: the Adonis throwing her down and claiming her. She shivered in reaction. Damn it, now isn’t the time for that!

A glance stolen over her shoulder found him catching up with every step, his long legs eating up the distance between them. The determination squaring his jaw had desire pooling in her belly, hot and heavy, throwing off her stride.

He shot past her, blocking the path to the door.

Changing direction, Rory swerved around a large ceramic pot, her feet feeling leaden, as though she were running through molasses. The humidity in the air didn’t help; it felt like a sauna.

He blocked her again, forcing her to round a pungent hedge. He was toying with her, herding her to where he wanted. Well, two could play that game.

She veered into a stand of palms, hoping her agility would offset his greater speed. For a moment she thought it would work, but the low leafy trees ended too soon, leaving her racing over a well-kept lawn.

He slammed into her like a runaway locomotive, sending her flying through the air. Then the night spun and she landed on hard, unyielding muscle. Before she could catch her breath, he twisted around, planting her facedown on the grass and under his big body.
