Here’s a set of six from my YA fantasy-romance Heir to the Underworld, available now wherever ebooks are sold!
Feisty Frederica Fitzgerald is one day shy of her sweet sixteen when she’s nearly run over by a mysterious stranger. Dressed in Greek armor. Riding a horse. Freddy can deal with the running over part—no harm done. The real problem is the rider, Mr. Tall, Dark and Mysterious. Also known as Deg. Freddy’s hooked on the mysterious Deg right from the start (although dude, togas went out of style several thousand years ago), but he’s got secrets he isn’t sharing, and trouble follows him closer than his own shadow…in this scene realizing just how much Freddy has come to mean to him…
Polydegmon squeezed his eyes closed, his hand trailed over her arm and rested atop her hand on his cheek, holding her fingers there, never wanting to let go, to leave this moment. He rattled a breath into his constricting chest. “Ubi tu Gaia, ego Gaius.” He whispered the words, reverent, moved, as sincere as the day he had sworn by the river Styx to protect her. “Where thou art Gaia, I shall be Gaius.” Even with his eyes closed, he swore he knew how far she stood from him, how many bare finger lengths separated his lips from hers.
