"Looking at him made me desirous for things I never thought I would want."
Abby Davenport has spent the last ten years forgetting her past until a fateful night reveals her false reality. Thrust into a new world of dark sorcery and ancient magic, she's shocked to discover her destiny lies as the keeper of a powerful relic. Now everyone wants to control, own, or destroy her. No longer able to discern truth from lie, she’s torn between a charming guardian and a mysterious summoner. Abby finds herself strangely drawn to each man—one sworn to protect and one who calls to her soul. Can she survive the strange and dangerous labyrinth of the first realm, where every move, emotion, and reaction must be a calculated one?
His index finger tapped methodically against his glass as watched me. “Everything in good time.”
“Sounds like I’m more of a prisoner than a guest.”
“I don’t take prisoners, Ms. Davenport. They’re a waste of my time.”
I tried to think of anything I could to hang over his head. “I doubt the Council would appreciate the way you’re treating me.”
His face was suddenly very dark. “The Council is only concerned with their continued reign over the realm. They only need you alive and doing as they say. Your comfort, your happiness, is irrelevant to them.”
Doubt crept through my mind. Was that true? God, I hoped not.
“You know what? I’m done talking to you. I want to go. Now.” I stood up from my chair. “So send me to the dungeon or wherever the hell you plan on keeping me. But send me now.” At this point, I’d take anywhere except being near him. I had too many conflicting emotions, especially when he was around.
Laughter rumbled through his chest. “You are in no position to be making demands.”
“And you are an asshole.”
He looked mildly entertained by my outburst, the corners of his mouth lifted into a wicked smile, but something in his eyes held a new respect. His gaze shifted from my eyes to my lips, leisurely traveling up and down my body.
