Enjoy an Excerpt

Theseus’ entire body must have been made in the nectar of desire
because she wished to bury herself in his arms. And he didn’t stop her from
running to him. She jumped when a crash cracked through the air. Blinking,
unsure of what happened, her body became rigid. Theseus pulled her into his
arms and onto the ground seconds before the giant flew over the pair of them.
He took his hand off her head. He had protected her. Again.
Staring up at him stirred something unique inside her that she never
believed could happen to her. She’d seen the plays and the tragedy that love
caused, but never understood temptation. The fire in her belly burned into
every part of her body from his smoldering eyes. He looked down at her as he
cradled her in his arms. “That was Sinus. I don’t think he’ll kill anyone else
ever again.”
“He won’t. How do you know his name?”
“He’s the reason I chose this path when I was fifteen. I had planned to
prove my courage to my father, and take out the biggest villain on the road.”
“Check that off the list of goals then.” she said. “Good job.”
She continued to embrace Theseus, making her body tingle from crazy
stirrings. What would he taste like? She’d die a happy death if he put his lips
on hers. My, what was she thinking?
“I never believed you’d be here, or that my goal in that moment would
turn to protecting you.” he said, pulling her closer.
She shook off her desires. She needed to let him go. She focused on
logic instead of the male body in front of her. “I don’t know what to say.
Today has been the craziest day.”
“It’s the middle of the night, little one.”
“You’re right. I don’t know what’s happening to me anymore. Theseus,
this never happens to me.”
“What doesn’t happen to you?” he asked, smiling.
“I don’t know.”
He played with her hair, and straightened her clothes. “Your innocence
and desire are a siren’s call to me, Ari, and you don’t have a clue, do you?”
“Who’s Ari?” She half expected to be disappointed with whatever he
would say.
“You are. It fits you much better than Ariadne. Ari trembles for me.”
She licked her lips, wanting to kiss him. But she couldn’t. Theseus
embodied a man out of her dreams.
She looked away thinking of what waited for her when her father’s men
found her. “I don’t know my bridegroom. I’ve only ever known my duty.”
Theseus’ body tensed. “You’re betrothed?”
“I never agreed. The bride price, I’m told, paid for my father’s
upgrade to the artillery. In the morning or someday soon, I’ll be found.
But…can you do me one last favor?”
“What, little one?” His arms grew warm again, tightening around her.
She dared for a different life, where she lived with a chance of walking next
to him in life. Letting him go and going back to the life her father chose
sounded cold and dreary. She couldn’t, not yet.
“Kiss me, Theseus, just once.”
Taking a step closer to him, she looked into his mesmerizing eyes. His
strong hands framed her face, his fingers circled her mouth and his eyes
darkened with tenderness. When he leaned into her, her eyelids fluttered shut.
His light pressure sweetly opened her mouth.
Her secret wish had come true. The prison walls in Ariadne’s heart
disappeared in her soul, and today Ari’s lips ached.
He bent his head close. Then, she felt his strong
lips on hers, and she lost control.
