“What did you do?” Ethan’s voice swirled around me, coming in and out of focus.
I felt heavy, and let my eyelids flutter before forcing them open. Ethan’s beautiful face hovered inches above mine. He smiled at me and my heart leaped.
“You’re alive.” I breathed out the words like a prayer.
He ran his fingers through my hair and shook his head. “I thought I’d lost you.”
“Me?” I asked. “You were the one that was bleeding to death.” At the memory of his injury, I sat up, intending to check that he was healed. My head spun and I fell back onto the bed.
“Stay down,” Ethan said. “I’m fine. I woke to find a healer sitting in the corner, but she didn’t heal me. She said I was mended before she arrived.”
My lips parted, but I didn’t have any words. I was too happy to see him alive and well. I reached toward his face, tracing his pink lips with my fingertips. “I thought you were going to die.”
“You shouldn’t have used so much magic,” he said. “I’m not worth the risk.”
“Yes, you are.” I stared into his clear blue eyes. How did I make him understand how much he meant to me? I’d never felt a true connection to any human being before and here I was, feeling completely at ease with this Fae prince. It was as if we’d known each other our whole lives. Like we’d simply been apart for a few days but fell back into our old habits.
He leaned closer, slowly pausing with his lips above mine. I felt his warm breath on my skin and every inch of me felt like it was on fire. My breath hitched in anticipation and he pressed his lips against mine. His kiss was soft yet hungry and his lips moved with mine as if they were dancing. It was familiar and warm and maddening all at the same time.
His fingers wove through my hair, his hand cradling the back of my head, pressing me harder into him. I reached around him, digging my nails into the fabric of his ruined tunic and pulling him against me. His strong chest pressed against my breasts, making them ache for attention.
Ethan broke away for a moment, his shallow breaths matching my own. “Forgive me.”
“For what?” I asked.
“That wasn’t appropriate,” he said. “There’s just something about you that makes me lose control.”
“Then lose it,” I said. “I give you permission.”
My story is probably similar to a lot of other writers out there. As a kid, I was creative, imaginative, and loved to write. I’d write scripts for plays and make my sisters act them out. I got excited about the writing prompts for standardized tests in elementary school. I started writing my first (unfinished) novel in 5th grade. Then started another one in middle school. For a long time, I was a closet writer. I didn’t tell anybody that I had a hard drive full of abandoned stories. After years of not finishing anything, I finally took the plunge and started taking writing, and myself as a writer, seriously. My first novel, Heir of Illaria, published January 23, 2017. Book 2 is right around the corner. It’s gone from closet hobby to full on addiction. Thankfully, I have a wonderfully supportive husband who doesn’t look at me like I’m crazy when I talk about my characters as if they’re real.
