To celebrate the release of the fourth book in the Amaranthine series I am hosting ten days of giveaways on this blog! Each day from, May 22 – 31, I will post a tiny excerpt of the fourth book and a prize. To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment with your email address on the blog and you will be automatically entered to win the prize being given away in that blog post! (yes, that means to enter for all ten prizes you have to comment on each of the ten blogs.) If you’re not comfortable leaving your address in a comment, please email it to m at Joleene (at) JoleeneNaylor.com and be sure to let me know which blog you’re entering for. Random.org will pick the winners on June 4th. I will contact the winners for your mailing address and send the prizes shortly after.
Malick turned to Katelina with an indulgent smile. She couldn’t look away. Without realizing it, she stood and crossed to him. Physically, Malick was barely taller than she was, but his presence overwhelmed her.
He caught her chin with his fingertips and forced her to gaze into his dark, jewel like eyes. Where Jorick’s were like drowning in warm silk, Malick’s were like falling into naked flame. They seared into her consciousness. She whimpered but couldn’t move away.
He rolled over her until she lost all sense of herself or her feelings. The only thing that existed was the master and his flawless features. His skin was like tawny marble and, as if commanded, she touched his face. It was cool and smooth under her fingers. He was inside her mind. Instead of tearing at raw wounds as he had last time, he peered at things visible on the surface while a calming sensation gently cradled her.
When he released her, it was like falling from a vacuum into the real world. Her ears roared with the buzz of blood. She gasped for air, suddenly aware that she’d quit breathing. Her emotions and awareness of herself came rushing back. She saw her hand, still stretched towards him, and dropped it, mortified.
Three lucky winners will each get a set of three(3) bookmarks that include Verchiel, Malick and Torina.
Good luck and thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check back tomorrow for another fun giveaway, and if you haven’t yet, be sure to check out the other Ten Days of Giveaways blogs!
If you were Katelina, what memory or thought would you not want Malick to see? (I’ll share the most interesting answers(s) on facebook.)
