SSS: Facing down fears

Thanks so much for visiting! And thanks especially for your comments. They absolutely make my day.

Here's a bit more from my fantasy, A Hard Day's Knight, to release from Decadent next month as part of its 1NS series. Lance receives the same invitation from two women, for two very different reasons:


The curve of a fishnet-stockinged knee ended at the black skirt’s edge, hitched thigh high, and the black-haired wench leered at him. “Dance with me.”


How the same words sounded like heaven uttered by one woman, and hell when spoken by another, confounded him. With the strong scent of apples suffusing the air, he knew exactly why she intruded. She came from the isle of apples: Avalon.


“Tempting as your offer is, I’m promised to another,” he said, and let his cold smile taunt her.
