With the e-book now up for preorder and release day on 02-27-17, it seems only fitting that I share the opening lines from Colin’s story for today’s sneak peek:
Colin Terriot studied the scorched circle placed in his palm, brow furrowing. The wide band of polished steel never left his step-father’s finger. A gift from their king, it was Abel Conroy’s most prized possession, a symbol of prestige and loyalty.
Her sudden slap nearly knocked him to his knees, not from the strength of the blow, but because he’d never in his fourteen years felt the brunt of a hand raised in anger by someone he loved; as the son of a king, reared in the shadow their clan’s fiercest warrior, no one would dare, and surprise left him defenseless.
Fury throbbed in his mother’s voice as she demanded, “Where were you when they were dying?”
They’d died? His step-father, his half-brothers? The shock too huge to absorb all at once, he looked up, eyes tearing, throat too tight for speech as he put his other palm to the fiery mark on his face. Meeting his mother’s glare, a crystal-clear understanding settled deep and cold inside him: His protector was dead, and his king indifferent, and in that moment, Colin knew everything in his world had changed.
Here’s another look at my brawny prince . . .
Obsessed with an enemy - the only female to ever walk away from him . . .
Colin . . . Prince in the House of Terriot
Brawny, cynical negotiator for his clan, Colin Terriot sees a move to New Orleans as an escape from a painful past and his reputation as a legendary lover. What he didn't expect was to fall hard for a rival spy, the female who tricked and betrayed him by leaving his bed for his brother's. Now, he now must work with her, up close and personal, as the envoy for her clan. Things are about to heat up.
Determined to have him - even if having him means losing all . . .
Mia . . . Strong-willed Guedry heir
Denied her rightful legacy, Mia Guedry plans to stake her claim over the bodies of those who killed her family. But best laid plans fall before her desire for the one male she can't resist, the one who will never trust her once burned by her necessary deceptions. Saving her Terriot prince from plans already in motion may cost more than her inheritance . . . the price could be her life.
“Hold onto your heart (& your panties, ladies!) . . . the Terriot princes are back! Things are heating up in New Orleans in this powerful story of obsession, betrayal and revenge. Intricately woven plot lines and complex characters carry PRINCE OF POWER to a block buster revelation in another Page Burning Must Read! Five Hearts!” – Cross My Heart Reviews
