Today I am sharing the first page of Entwined, which releases on 22 September, with you. I loved writing this story and I am even more in love with book 2, Entangled, which is half written and continues to the love story between Nate and Eve set against the back drop of a world filled with faeries, demons and angels.
I stood at the front of the room and surveyed the students, scrutinizing each of them.
The teacher introduced me. Her nasally voice sounded like white noise and I barely listened. It was all the same, anyhow, everywhere I went. She’d tell them my name, tell them where I was from, and ask them to make me feel welcome, which, for the most part they would. Especially the girls.
But I wasn’t here to mess around with girls, although that was always an added bonus. I was here because the clues had led me here. I was here searching for her.
Immediately, I dismissed half the class. They were boys and of no interest. Instead, I paid particular attention to the girls who stared at me with wide, appreciative eyes. I grinned. As cocky as it sounded, my appeal to the opposite sex was not lost on me. I was well aware of the impact I had on human girls, and how easily influenced they were. Maybe I could have some fun after all, I thought as I regarded the pretty, mortal girls with their bouncy curls and shiny, ignorant eyes.
I refocused my attention. I was here for a purpose. One purpose only.
All the clues had led me to this place and this time, and I was sure I’d not misread them. She had to be here.
As if in confirmation, the latest clue, tattooed on my wrist, started to throb and I rubbed the Russian words absently.
My gaze lingered on a pale girl, who stared at me with large, gray eyes fringed in long dark lashes. She reminded me of a startled deer, caught in the headlights of a car. As my gaze met hers, her eyes widened and the color deepened to a dark violet. Maybe…
But then she blinked, her cheeks flushing as she looked down at her desk.
No, I sighed, dismissing her. Maybe this is just another dead end…
I hope you enjoyed!!
