Happy Hump Day! Today I share an excerpt from my second Redcliffe novel, Love Kills (A Redcliffe Novel), where the love triangle begins to form between the witch, her werewolf, and her vampire boyfriend.
“This is all for you, Jessica,” Danny said, “I can no longer deny my feelings for you.”
My heart skipped a beat and the room spun around me. It was nothing to do with the whiskey. I swallowed nervously, again glancing from Jack to Danny. My boyfriend was silent at my side, and I was aware of Simon standing just in front of the desk.
“W-what do you mean?” I asked shakily.
Danny placed his hands on my knees, and I sat rigid, unable to move. Suri stirred again within me. I was aware of her lifting her head, surveying the scene with interest. I could hear her thinking how useful this situation could be to her. She pleaded again for me to allow her release.
“Not now, Suri,” I whispered, and Danny looked at me sharply.
“Your tiger is here,” he said with a faint smile, “I can feel her. She wants me. Do you want me, Jessica?”
I licked my lips nervously. Yes, I wanted Danny, and it terrified me. How could I do this to Jack? Surely, I could not be in love with two men. It wasn’t possible. Well, maybe it wasn’t love. But I certainly felt something for Danny, and I could no longer deny it. He knew. He stared at me with growing comprehension, and his expression grew triumphant.
