Because it takes a lot of work to make Mondays fun, we at Inkspell decided to start a blog feature we like to call Eyecandy Monday. Each Monday we will feature the characters from one Inkspell novel and share with you all the fine details and tasty tidbits we can dig up about these interesting and well written main characters. We want to revisit some of our favorite hotties from our favorite stories! As we revisit our eyecandy, we are sharing with you an excerpt to wet your appetite about the character and the story. After all, you can't get enough of book eyecandy!
Excerpt:“I know that you remember me.”
I stared at her, this mystery girl who’d been a part of my life for so long. Suddenly I was tired and didn’t want to argue. It unnerved me to know that I wanted to stay with her; I’d been wrong. I loathed being in Gran’s house alone, with only memories for company. “How could I ever have forgotten you?”
Though my voice was soft and gentle, my words had a powerful effect on the young woman in front of me. She blushed crimson and glanced down to hide her face. “Please come with me.”
Slowly, I placed my hand in hers. It was warm, as in my memory. “Where are we going?”
“I need to show you. Otherwise, you will think I am a hallucination again.”
“I suppose that’s true.”
She didn’t answer me, but she smiled back as she handed me a rough-looking knife with a black handle. “Put this in your pocket.”
“Are you anticipating that I’ll have to stab someone on the trip?” I wasn’t the kind of guy who routinely carried weapons around. More often than not, I could be a bit uncoordinated.
“I hope it does not come to that.” And before I could register that remark, I found myself running out into the night with her.
“Where are we going?”
We reached the steps that led down the cliff face. A dog howled in the night, setting an ominous tone for our journey. Calienta glanced at me for a moment but didn’t answer as she turned back to the direction in which we were heading. She pulled me close to her.
My hand burned where she held it and the air around us was thick with tension; that was how aware I was of her physically. A storm brewed between us.
Wow! Kellen was willing to follow Calienta into the cave as his whole life changes. Excited to read more? Pick up The Star Child today!
