I'm currently working on Galen and Jessamy's novella - I thought you all might like a little sneak peek. Jessamy isn't in this particular bit, but it's from her point of view.
Unedited advance excerpt from Angels' Dance
A ringing blow with the flat of the blade against Dmitri’s cheek, a kick to the gut and suddenly, Galen had the advantage, the tip of his broadsword touching Dmitri’s jugular as the vampire’s chest heaved where he lay on his back on the ground. “Yield.”
Dmitri’s unblinking gaze locked with Galen’s, the merciless predator within the sophisticated vampire very much at the forefront. But his voice, when it came, was a lazy purr languid as a summer afternoon. “You’re lucky the babies are watching.”
Galen didn’t so much as a flinch, his focus absolute.
Dmitri’s lips curved. “Bloody barbarian. I yield.”
