About the Book
In a world where no one understands her secret, Avera leads a lonely existence. She must not risk attraction, because the horror of her secret would lead to unimaginable results. She’s bound to remain alone or risk being called a freak…
The force of Nature has exerted its effect. Both human and animal, Surazh completely understands what she tries to hide. The instant attraction between them devours his intentions and places his mission in jeopardy. He must tread carefully with Avera, but no matter what, he has to run the hazard of exposing her to the arch enemy of their cohort – a deadly hunter who plays on their will and their minds, to kill for his lust.
Caught in the whirlpool of their passion, Avera and Surazh must unravel the forces of destruction and find strength to fight the final battle. But their fight is also waging within, to conquer vulnerability that each seeks to hide. Then Avera learns an ultimate, mind blowing secret that threatens to shatter the world she has known till now…
Bound to their own dark conflicts, will they stop the destruction in time?
‘I don’t know about golf.’ She met his gaze, acknowledging the gold flecks that indicated roused emotions. ‘Where women are concerned you seem to have talent.’
To her surprise, he flushed. A heated wave that rose from his neck upward. She watched, fascinated. Why would he not take the compliment? He had to know he was a great lover. Every practised move had been designed to captivate a woman.
For some reason, his reaction brought out the stirring of unease in her. That tugging of the smell of danger at the back of her mind.
Something he had said at the hotel came to her. ‘For your good and ours.’ Suddenly she knew it held a layer, a meaning.
‘What did you mean when you said that?’ she asked, repeating the phrase.
‘We are too short of time for me to go into lengthy explanations. Trust me. It’s better all around. There are predators hunting us. I won’t leave you here.’
‘I should know what I’m getting into.’ Was he evading answering her or just being practical? She’d agreed without being coerced. She had to remember it was her own decision. But how much did she really know?
‘Let’s go. My team is already in fidgets. I was supposed to back by this afternoon. You need to be there with us. Besides…’ He paused.
The silence held for moments. He waited till her gaze meshed with his. Tangled and lay entwined.
‘Besides, there’s us. I’m not ready to keep it a one-night stand. Are you?’
Avera knew her own confirmation wasn’t even needed. Back there she’d wanted to write it off as a one off but she knew she had been kidding herself. But now she wanted to fight him. Perversely, she had to get back at him. Her chin tipped, a challenge gleamed in her gaze as she replied ‘As you said, the time is short. Can we discuss it later?’
She saw a flaring up in the leopard eyes she could recognise now. For a wild moment, she wanted him to avenge that bit of defiance in age-old tradition of a male subduing his female. It was madness. She wasn’t his. And she certainly wouldn’t stand for subduing, however secluded she had been.
