I’m very excited to have Jane Burrelli on my blog again. She has the second book in a delicious science fiction series coming out today! The Bride of Fire Series is spicy and truly enjoyable to read. Let’s take a peek at her latest…
PLAYING WITH FIRE
This princess isn’t afraid to play with fire, are you?
When the gods breathed life into us they blessed us with an element, a pity they didn’t care to bless us with anything else.
Princess Nymira’s life changed forever when a coup forced her to flee north and in doing so she found herself mated to Zorren, the formidable Ice Lord. Their instant connection is undeniable but their budding relationship is not without challenges.
Mira must now face the open hostility of a foreign court as she attempts to carve out a niche at Zorren’s side. New enemies work tirelessly to drive a wedge between the newly mated pair and their tentative bond of trust is tested to the limit. Are Mira and Zorren strong enough to withstand the storm or will her most guarded secret drive them apart?
He sized up the battle lines drawn between us and quirked an eyebrow. My eyes narrowed. That. One. Single. Movement. Sent my justified anger up another notch.
“Is that right?” he purred. The hair on the back of my neck prickled as he slowly stalked closer.
“I mean it, Zorren,” I hissed wanting to keep him as far away as possible. I drew myself up to my full height and still managed to feel small. “I’m going to call it an early night,” I stated with as much dignity that I possessed. “I have a terrible headache.” His firm lips curled at the blatant lie and my toes copied the movement. Would he call me on it? My back bumped the wall, though I was not sure when I started moving. Zorren’s arms bracketed my head and his lean hips pinned me in place. Dancing blue eyes looked down at me and I snapped mine shut. Bracing myself for the tide of desire that washed through me. My heart sped up oh, so predictably and my hands fisted tightly, digging my nails into my palms. I would fight the pull.
“Shall I let that lie slip, little mate?” The low graveled words curling around my ear was almost my undoing. The soft rasp of stubble scraping across the crook of my neck made my knees quiver. Of course, he wouldn’t let it pass. I raised my chin and met his unwavering gaze.
“It is not a lie.” I sniffed with disdain. “You are most definitely giving me a headache with your split personality.” Less than pleased Zorren’s lips thinned, the playfulness faded and a rigidity entered his arms.
“Is that so?”
“One minute you want me,” I accused my eyes blazing up at him. “The next, you pass me off to your friend and keep me at arm’s length. You swap between the Ice Lord and my mate. Well, at this moment I am not in the mood to accommodate either one.”
When I realised that the world was not hiring for a ‘sarcastic but benign Supreme Ruler of the Universe’ I’ve decided to focus on my passion. By day I work in a UK company’s finance department and by night I become my alter ego Scribble Girl or as my good friends have affectionately dubbed me the ‘sex author’. Always armed with a notepad and pen in the black hole I call a handbag, I have been writing never ending stories since the age of 11 and this all stemmed from my love of reading.
I love reading. Period!
I’m part of the Harry Potter generation and while waiting between books would literally devour any book I could get my hands on. Let’s put it this way J.K Rowling has a lot to answer for. I adore that there is no end in sight to where your own imagination can take you and that between the pages of a book you are transported to another world.
