He would have his revenge. Nothing and no one could stop him.
Ferris has spent the better part of six years training and preparing for vengeance. The barbarians who abducted his sister so long ago would pay for their sins in blood. With the help of his magic, he’d avenge her honor, and wipe out the Black Isles once and for all. It’s all so clear, until he starts to wonder if he’s fighting for the wrong side.
She knows she must kill him. So why does she hesitate?
As right hand woman to the General, Eryn plays an important role in the defense of the Black Isles and its people. When a ship full of human mainlanders is spotted in their territory, she knows they must strike the enemy hard. War will tear the Isles apart if the warlock on-board the ship isn’t stopped. Only, she can’t bring herself to do the needful… He has put her under his spell.
They’re sworn enemies, fighting for opposing teams. The battlefield is the last place where love should bloom. But as they are about to discover, passion and hate are two sides of the same coin…
Eryn couldn’t believe her luck. Every day, Ferris had come to spend time with her and to care for her. She had cherished their moments together, even if she assumed it would all come to an end once she was fully recovered.
Somewhere in the back of her mind she’d always wondered, what if this was something more than just friendship? But she’d rejected the notion as quickly as it had come up.
She wasn’t from one of the prominent Black Isle families like Rhea and even Yorrick. She was a commoner.
Why would he care for her like that?
But he had surprised her, despite all of her protests and concerns.
“You’re perfect just the way you are.” These words continued to ring in her ears, moments after he had first said them.
She was overwhelmed by the realization that all the things she’d been trying not to think about, he’d been thinking too. The attraction she’d felt from the start, he had felt it too.
That’s why he had joined her on the battlefield, when he could have performed his magic anywhere and not been so dangerously close to the action.
And it was also the reason he had avenged her injury and burned down half of the mainland’s fleet of ships. After all that, he had mustered the last of his reserves to try and bring her back from the dead. She’d seen in his eyes just how close to the brink he had come. All for her.
What more could she ask for in a mate? And if the queen didn’t object, then…
“Do you really think it’s possible?” Eryn asked.
“Anything is possible now.”
He leaned over and placed his hand on the side of her face. His touch made her cheeks burn up, and caused her breaths to quicken.
“Unless Rhea tries to arrest me again,” he added.
“Don’t joke,” she said.
He was so close to her now, his heady perfume stirred up those same desires she’d had all along. Instinct was threatening to take over. All the things she knew her body craved; they were now within reach.
“Prove it with a kiss,” she whispered.
He didn’t need any more encouragement than that.
The moment their lips touched for the very first time, she knew there was no turning back. All the tension, all the yearning she’d felt, it was all about to be unleashed.
It was the animal side of her, taking over. Just what she’d been afraid of all this time, she could no longer remember.
It felt so right; his flesh against hers.
She got onto her knees on the edge of her bed, and pulled him closer by his hand until they were more evenly matched. The taste of his lips was intoxicating.
He pulled away just enough to speak. “Tell me if it hurts.”
His breath tickled her face, which sent her heart racing even faster.
“My wound healed days ago,” Eryn said. “Don’t worry about me.”
She wrapped her arms around him and pulled him against her. This was what she had craved. It was the sort of passion that made you stupid. She’d never understood it until this very moment.
His body was firm to the touch, muscular like her own, but also very different. His skin was so smooth, she couldn’t stop running her hands over him as they continued to make out.
What a beautiful man he was. He didn’t have the rough edges of some of the islanders. Only a few scars adorned his skin. She touched every single one of them with the tip of her finger.
Ferris. It made her happy to say his name.
Now that she had given herself permission to feel, she was overcome with so many emotions at once. She could laugh, or cry, or both at the same time.
Was this how it felt to love?
Eryn had no idea that things would get more intense still.
Ferris joined her on the bed and guided her down on her back. His hands were on an exploratory journey of their own. Her side, her hips, her stomach and her breasts, he caressed her all over.
As he looked down on her, Eryn noticed his eyes had turned almost black with lust. She could smell the change in him, heard the racing of his heart as his body was overcome by desire.
It made her want him more.
