She often spends her days slinging digital ink, and partaking of delectable lunchtime reads.
What inspired you to write your book?
During the writing of “In the Arms of the Dark Elf,” I fell in love with Dek and knew his story had to be told. Reader requests for more books prompted me to expand the novella into a full novel, and I’m really glad for their feedback. I love Liyelu and Dek together and may write more about their story in future books.
Here is a short sample from the book:
“Were you off to break my heart again?” He asked, his words so charismatic, she couldn’t tell if he was speaking with sincerity or merely being playful.
“I intended to make the rogues pay once my brother was freed.”
“Spoken like a warrior.”
“They’ve harmed more than my brother.”
“And they will pay, Liyelu.”
The pixet looked Dek over like she wasn’t so sure.
“You’re not the only one who’d like to mete out justice. But it won’t be tonight.”
“Why would you… help me?” Liyelu asked shakily.
Dek’s brow creased, and he cocked his head as if struck by her question.
“Have you no idea?”
The pixet looked at him, tracing the curve of his sculpted cheekbones and the tantalizing almond-cut slant of his eyes.
“I betrayed you.”
“You set out to betray me before you knew me, I suspect.”
“It doesn’t change that I did.”
“It changes everything,” he told her with a phrasing that made his assertion sound much like a truth.
Liyelu watched him keenly then, pausing as she considered his words. When her head finally lowered, Dek extended his hand, gesturing her to come to him as she lifted her head, and he saw the emotion that glazed her eyes.
She swallowed her nerves, locking gaze with him then, quickly, as if struck with a need she’d struggled to suppress with great difficulty and lost. Then she was crossing over to him and covered his mouth with her own, quickly straddling his lap.
