Excerpt

Book 3: Gypsy Love by Angela McPherson and Lynn Vroman

“First things first.” I went to her dresser, pulled out a T-shirt and sweats, and tossed them to her. “You’ve got to cut me a damn break.”

Mia caught the clothes with a grin, that treacherous robe revealing more skin. “You’re sure?”

“No, but…look, I’m trying to be a gentleman. Humor me.”

She headed to the bathroom, mumbling, “My dream and he calls the shots.”

As the door slammed, I laughed. The woman had strength, intelligence, and beauty. The perfect trifecta.

Miryah’s face flashed through my mind, especially her anger as she plunged the dagger into my chest. From witnessing firsthand her ability to suck me into a dream, Mia had that kind of power, too, more than any other Kotorara I’d seen. Maybe even more than Miryah.

A warning shot through me as she walked back into the room, a shy smile lighting her face. Hopefully Mia didn’t have her ancestor’s taste for revenge.

“So, here’s the deal. If I have to change, so do you.” Mia chucked a wad of clothes at me.
I barely caught them. “Excuse me?”

“Listen, I love the whole pirate thing you’ve got going on, but seriously, you look like you just stepped off the cover of a romance novel.”

“Ah, what?” I looked down at my breeches and shirt then held up the sweats and T-shirt. “And where did you get men’s clothes?”

“My dream, my rules, remember?” She raised her brow. “Unless you changed your mind? I have no problem getting naked.”

She’d be the death of me. Again. “Not fair.”

“No one said anything about fair. Go change, and then come on back so we can have our little meet-and-greet.”

I grinned and headed to the bathroom. Gypsy magic.


 

 

 

 

About D. Nichole King

Born and raised in Iowa, d. Nichole King writes her stories close to home. There’s nothing like small-town Midwest scenery to create the perfect backdrop for an amazing tale.

She wrote her first book in junior high and loved every second of it. However, she couldn’t bring herself to share her passion with anyone. She packed it away until one day, with the encouragement of her husband, she sat down at the computer and began to type. Now, she can’t stop.

When not writing, d. is usually curled up with a book, scrapbooking, or doing yet another load of laundry.

Along with her incredible husband, she lives in small-town Iowa with her four adorable children and their dog, Peaches.

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. A man who never reads lives only one.” –George R. R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

About Sunniva Dee

I write New Adult fiction with a paranormal twist and don’t shy away from romance and heart-wrenching passion when necessary.

I moved from Norway to the United States in 2001, and the first awesome five years I spent in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles. Then I read “The Book,” aka Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, which spurred my husband and me to move cross country to beautiful Savannah, Georgia.

I’m currently on my seventh year in the Deep South, where I enjoy the heat and the humidity. Besides writing, I spend my time with our “petting zoo” as in an opinionated parrot, a herd of cats that are experts on keyboard shortcuts, and puppies that…uh, bark.

I hold a Master’s degree in languages, with concentrations within literature and linguistics. I taught at college level for a decade before settling in as a graduate adviser at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Writing is my passion, my joy, and my addiction. When I’m not writing, I read.
Shattering Halos is my debut novel, and its standalone sequel, Stargazer, is due out later this year.
