Happy Saturday to everyone! Here’s hoping your weekend is off to a great start. Today’s sample is from Her Dark Knight, a paranormal romance. Enjoy!
“If the treasure is discovered by the wrong people, there will be war as we have never seen, pestilence and death. Everything as you know it will be gone.”
“You are speaking of the Apocalypse?”
Michael did not answer. His silence was answer enough.
He would not accept that he was the only man standing between life and the end of the world. The only man for the rest of eternity? Nay.
“You will encounter those who want to take the treasure from you, who will do anything to have it. You alone know where it is buried, but only the key
can break the seals.”
“What is this key you speak of?”
“You will know when you find it.”
He shook his pounding head. “You speak in riddles again.”
Michael lowered himself to one knee and folded battle-scarred hands over his bent leg. “The key will reveal itself in time. For now you need to protect the treasure. You have been given eternal life to do so. Death cannot claim you.”
He stared at his rescuer turned jailor, anger and desperation and defeat churning inside him. “You lied.”
Michael cocked a brow in question.
“This is hell.”
