During NaNo I've been working on, and sharing snippets from, a Romance Fantasy that stars a support character from my Illuminati series, so here's an excerpt from Book I in the series!
She drew her bottom lip into her mouth, considering. Vargas was looking at her in a strange way, his gaze focused, probing, as he considering Rashid’s words. She wished Rashid had not revealed so much to this stranger. What must he think of a father who would allow his daughter to be whipped? She could just imagine what he would think of a father who had ordered it done. He didn’t say a word, but just kept staring at her as though it had just occurred to him that she might have problems and obligations to equal his own. Why did she care what he thought?
Honesty, she decided, would work better than torture with him. “Rashid, Arai, take the Bedouin. I wish to speak to Vargas alone,” she announced.
Ljluka Vargas, immortal prince and the cool-headed enforcer for the Vargas Dynasty, must go up against his most intriguing enemy, the mysterious Nalini. She intends to beat him to the secret archaeological site of The Book of Life which contains the genetic secrets of their ancient ancestors.
In order to escape the cruel domination of her family and gain freedom for her mother, Nalini assumes the role of assassin. In her rival, the sleek and deadly Luc, she finds a different kind of danger. She’s supposed to eliminate him, but that would foil destiny’s plan for them to be together.
It’s a race from power-hungry D.C. cabinet rooms through the secret realms of the Vatican, from cloud forests and desert sands to the caverns of the Underworld as mankind hangs in the balance. For whoever possesses the Book of Life has the potential to rule the world, offering or denying immortality to the human race.
I blog there the 18th of each month!
