It’s Wednesday…time for the Hump Day Hook. This week, in honor of my newest book being launched this Saturday, I’m sharing an excerpt from Odyssey. This book is a companion piece to The Vampire Destiny Series, and is told in my heroes POV.
This scene takes place with Stefan, Josephine and Stefan’s vampire child, Lukas. Enjoy!
“Please come home. I need you.”
Josephine’s frantic request made me walk out of the meeting I was in with potential investors. I could not care less about their money. I had more money than I could spend in 20 lifetimes. I only had one mate.
Bursting into the living room, I looked around anxiously until I found her in the kitchen. I did not acknowledge Lukas’s presence. I rushed to her side and jerked her in my arms, muttering inaudibly against her hair. She clutched at me, her fingers twisting in my shirt. She began to weep, her knees giving out on her. I sank to the floor with her, rocking her in my arms.
“Lukas? What happened?” I demanded harshly. I needed to know who had done this to her.
“I don’t know. She hasn’t had the chance to tell me anything.”
“Kian,” she sputtered. “Stefan, let me show you.”
Giving me access to her memories, she replayed her confrontation with her father at the art gallery for me. I stiffened against her and was ready to find Kian and rip him apart piece by piece.
“What?!? Will someone tell me what’s going on?” Lukas asked, tapping his foot impatiently.
