Excerpt: Tangle of Need

Never say I don't listen to you. As requested, here's another small excerpt from Tangle of Need. I had the choice between an intense one and a fun one, and I chose intense. I'll put up the other one late next week. 

This takes place during Hawke and Sienna's mating ceremony, and yep, you do get to see the entire ceremony in the book.

Hope you enjoy!

Excerpt from Tangle of Need

Matthias’s jaw brushed her hair. “No pressure, darling.” They danced in warm silence until Adria caught a scent that made her spine lock—right before Matthias said, “I think someone’s about to steal you away.”

Not wanting to make a scene and mar the celebration, she didn’t protest when Matthias stepped back. “Take care of my girl,” he warned.

Riaz muttered something pithy in Spanish that made Matthias laugh, but all Adria could hear as he took her into his arms was the frantic beat of her pulse, thudding in time to his own. Too fast, both of them, their skin too hot. 

“Why are you doing this?” she whispered, her voice stripped bare.

Riaz’s answer sounded torn out of him. “I can’t stop myself.” 

He shifted her closer, the move so unexpected, she didn’t resist—and found herself plastered to the hard strength of him. His arousal pushed into her abdomen, the hot male scent of him seeping into her veins until she could taste the dark forests and biting citrus of him against her tongue.

Quibbler said...

Whew! Intense is right!

How much longer? I'm climbing the walls with impatience. Especially since I'm in Australia so I'll have to wait just that little bit longer (That's so cruel! Why do we always get stuff later than the north?)

Mujerluminosa said...

ISITMAY29thYET!!!!!!!!!!!!?????? Smoking hot scene - and we get to see Sienna and Hawke's mating ceremony too - yay! Which means the Lauren boys -- sigh! -- will be there too. Joy! Thanks Nalini!

Love it but what sucks is this is the only P/C book coming out this year from what I can see. I just hope next year there is more than one book for this series published. Nope, I don't read the other series, does nothing for me.

I have to agree with Donna, Snippets are cruel. I want the whole book!

The fact we see the entire ceremony just made my MONTH Nalini! Thank you so much! More than anything (Yes, even Riaz's story) I wanted to see more Hawke & Sin, how their relationship evolves and the pack's reaction to it :)
