I like to participate in the My Sexy Saturday Blog Hop. This week we are all talking about that sexy love that really gets the heart pounding, the guy who turns your head when he walks in the room and everyone else seems to disappear.
I considered the charms of all my heroes and their charms are many, but I narrowed this down to King Max or his son David. In many of my books, David Hilliard is a secondary or support character. He’s always there to be supportive, encouraging, or adding fun. In The Stormy Love Life of Laura Cordelais, he’s the hero and one hell of a man. You’ll see!
Love doesn’t always come easy, even when you find that one person who has your heart. When Laura meets a unicorn, she is offered the chance to become mortal again. David tells her the truth how unicorns hate vampires but they do have the power to make them mortal again. Then he releases her to make up her own mind. Because he loves her.
The scene with the unicorn is unique, and you’ll have to read the book to see what happens. It’s not what you would expect. This event is early in their relationship. I’ll give you a glimpse into the choice Laura made that is only a beginning to their larger love story, when she returns to David and asks him to dance.
His lips brushed hers. “I ache for you.”
The warmth glowed between them, increasing with each fervent touch. An electric current drew them together, and the fire eternal they created as their bodies rubbed against each other, teased, tantalized, and blazed white hot. It was a long while before he noticed that she had something in her hand.
“Thomas tried to force me to choose a mortal life. I found him unworthy.” She tossed the unicorn’s horn on the floor.
David smiled and kissed her hand. They twirled around to the music inside them. The storm outside sang. Laura never knew the beauty of the gale until that moment, as it whistled and howled around their sanctuary from the living. David led her into bed. Like children they laughed and pulled the blanket up over their heads.
“I knew you would remember that I love you.”
“You are my shining light in the storm,” she whispered in his ear.
