Ren and Axel are caught between two powerful magical races: one destined to end the bloodshed, the other out for vengeance.And now for the scene!
Seventeen-year-old Ren Pernell is prophesied to end the war between the Dracians and the Telalians. So when a Dracian, Axel Knight, is sent to find and bring back the prophesied one before she turns eighteen and Telalians discover of her existence, unexpected sparks start to fly between the two. Once Ren finds the truth behind Axel’s arrival, she wants everything to do with him and nothing to do with his mission.
Things prove to become difficult as Ren’s life is constantly threatened by the Goarders, humans who sold their souls, a Proxy Succubi, and the leader of the Telalians, who has been searching for her as well.
With the clock ticking and Ren’s life in jeopardy, it is no longer just a mission for Axel. It becomes a personal endeavor to save the only one he’s ever loved. In a heart racing ending, they must find a way to evade the preordained war that won’t also end Ren’s life.
Deleted Scene Chapter 25 –
Plane ride over to Chicago.
I’d never been a fan of a flying. You’re doing this for Pey, I told myself. At least I got the window seat after winning the wrestling match against Dean. It wasn’t much of a fight when he realized the girl he would be snuggling next to for the next four hours was a Barbie Doll.
Oh, she had the whole package. Perfect hair, the long dark batting eyelashes, big… chest.
“Wow, I hope I don't get too jet lagged.” Barbie twirled her brown silky hair glancing at Dean.
“Oh, where are you traveling?” Dean asked intrigued.
“Chicago,” Barbie squeaked.
“Okay, are you flying into Chicago from a different continent or something?” Dean raised a questioning eyebrow.
“No... why? I live in Chicago.” She puffed up her upper body and leaned in toward Dean, giving him full view of her assets.
I stifled a giggle.
“Well, you said you hoped you don't get jet lagged… so I thought maybe Chicago was just a layover or...”
“Oh, well that's because of the hour time zone difference between Chicago and Boise.”
This time I faked a cough, trying to hide my laughter. Dean looked my way rolling his eyes.
Nice! I mouthed to him.
Once we landed, I shuffled into the aisle, grabbed bags and waited patiently for the doors to open. I somehow managed to get right behind Dean as Barbie attempted to flirt her way into Dean’s pants.
“So, how about we hook up.” She ran her perfectly manicured finger down Dean’s chest, biting her lip suggestively. “What’s your number?” She looped her finger into the buckle loop of his jeans and tugged him flush against her.
Wow, people actually do that with strangers?
So I supplied his number. She turned toward me with a who the hell are you? look. I could tell she wanted to burn me alive, by the way she glared at me. I think I might have felt a flicker of heat against my skin. Not so good.
I put up my hands like I was submitting to her wrath. “Oh, I’m not his girlfriend. As a matter of fact, he’s single.” I grinned at her. I yelped in pain when I felt a sharp pain on my waist. I stuck my tongue out at Dean.
Once we’ve found out way to the hotel we were staying at, Dean cornered me, while the rest continued on their merry way.
“What the hell was that for? You giving out my number.”
“I was just trying to help my best friend.” I playfully pushed him with my index finger and Dean leaned into my personal space. He was close. Too close. “Plus, I thought Barbie’s efforts deserved your number.”
“I don’t need help,” he snapped and walked away.
What crawled up his ass?
