We all want to find that special someone – our one true love – our soul mate. What if your soul mate isn’t of this world?
This excerpt is from Kela’s Guardian. Kela has taken on a quest, one that would tax any ordinary woman. Guardian Ansara is the perfect partner in every way possible.
Need a bit of extraordinary – Join Kela on her quest.
Vampires don’t exist. That’s what Kela believed before her fiancé joined the dark side. The cops think she’s crazy, but there’s a job to be done and someone’s got to do it.
Ansara has been ordered to destroy Vakkar, a demon bent on raising a vampire army. A celestial jump lands him in the middle of a fight between a feisty female and a group of vampires. Ansara soon realizes protecting this sexy warrior is as important as his mission. Their lust is as strong as the danger surrounding them.
Vampires, demons and a sexy hunk from a mystical galaxy? Kela’s carnal guardian quickly becomes an anchor in a world that has taken a decidedly supernatural turn.
How long have you been a guardian?”
Ansara set his empty glass aside. “Using Earth time as a measurement, it’s been centuries.”
“I can die only at the hand of a demon.”
“I was hoping you were invincible.” Kela finished her wine and set the glass on the end table. “The vampires had me. If you hadn’t shown up, I would have died, or worse.”
Ansara clamped a hand on her shoulder, squeezing gently. “You’re not alone in this battle.”
For the first time since this ordeal began, Kela had someone who didn’t think she was crazy. Someone to stand by her side. She buried her face against Ansara’s chest. The rhythmic beating of his heart soothed her as much as his words.
You’re not alone.
She’d lost her parents, her fiancé and her best friend, but now she had a guardian.
Kela slid her arms around Ansara’s neck. She needed the warm contact, the physical connection to another being. Maybe she just wanted to make sure he was real. There were far too many hours when she’d doubted her sanity.
Ansara wrapped his arms around her, providing the strength and security she needed. The heat of his skin penetrated her tired muscles and all Kela wanted to do was to remain in his arms.
Ansara kissed her forehead, his lips hot against her cold skin.
Seeking his heat, Kela tilted her head and pressed her lips to his. Heat flashed through her, firing muscle and bone, searing every sensual sensor.
He tightened his hold and deepened the kiss.
His size and strength fueled a desperate fire. A needy moan tore from somewhere deep inside her. Drawn to his heat and strength, Kela wanted Ansara. She needed him to banish the cold and the fear dwelling in her soul.
She pressed her breasts to his chest, her invitation obvious.
When he raised his head, ending the kiss, Kela opened her eyes. She expected the heat in his eyes, but not the set of his mouth.
“You’re exhausted,” he said. “You need sleep more than sex.”
“Sex helps me sleep.”
“Don’t tempt me, Kela.”
“Guardians can’t have sex?”
“Let’s not talk about sex,” he said, stripping her down to her underwear.
Kela hoped he’d change his mind, but he tucked her into bed and pulled the blanket up and over her shoulders.
“So guardians do have sex?”
A grin touched his lips. “We have all the necessary equipment.”
