Before everyone knew about King Max, I wrote the story of one of his sons in a novel called The Stormy Love Life of Laura Cordelais. Max has six sons and one daughter. This book features how David Hilliard meets Laura. Since the Sexy Saturday Blog Hop Excerpt is about “sexy and strong”, other than King Max, my mind immediately went to his son David, who fought in the Civil War and “died” at Gettysburg.
Recently I was talking to a reader and David just takes her breath away. So here’s our sophisticated New Yorker in his own quest for love, before we know him as Noblesse’s big brother and the Captain of the Arnhem Knights. Seven paragraphs on falling like a rock in love. It’s not easy when you’ve made a new vampire, even if it was to save her life. There are details to work out like the sleeping arrangements in his apartment. It’s getting harder and harder to be a gentleman. (Pun intended.)
“Okay. You take the bedroom and I’ll sleep on the couch.”
Laura went into the bedroom to get him a pillow and blankets. Then she came out with a sad expression on her face. “Um, David, there’s only a coffin in there.”
“I can’t sleep in a box.”
“Okay. I’ll take the coffin, and you take the sofa.”
She sat down next to him on the sofa looking all adorable wearing only his white pin-stripe shirt with her pink panties. “Maybe we could both sleep on the sofa?”
“I guess. You stretch out here, and I’ll be your blanket.” As soon as he was in position, he knew that this would lead to something. Then he heard her soft voice in his head. I want you, David. I want you so much.
