Teaser: Betray Me

Ahh, this scene nearly killed me when I was writing it. So much emotion! 💙🖤💙🖤💙🖤💙

Happy Teaser Day! 💙 I hope you like it! 💙


Kara dropped her battle-axe, as if to emphasize that she was not, in fact, going anywhere. Her blue gaze shifted toward Rose—glistening like ice, piercing Rose to the core. “You want me to betray you?” she said, her voice a low growl.

“Why not?” Rose said with a weary shrug. “You’d betray anyone else.”

“Because you’re not anyone else,” Kara said. Her shoulders relaxed, and everything about her seemed softer, all of the sudden, as if she’d cracked herself open, left herself vulnerable—for the first time in her life.

“Because I love you.”

Teaser: Kara’s Priorities

Kara’s Priorities:

1. Brag about new girlfriend.

2. Then…worry about the apocalypse. 😂

Happy Teaser Day! 💜🖤💜 I hope you like it! 💜

Excerpt:

“Kara Unnarsdóttir? In a serious relationship?” She laughed, “The world itself would end, if that ever happened.”

Kara exchanged an amused look with Rose, when Rose reached her side. Then, she slipped her arm around Rose’s waist, casually pulling Rose against her.

Rose smiled nervously, when the woman’s gaze shifted toward her. “Hi.”

“Hi,” the vampire repeated, offering her a baffled smile. “Who are you?”

With a painfully awkward shrug, Rose mumbled, “Serious relationship?”

The vampire’s eyes widened. Her wide, brown eyes shifted toward Kara, who simply smiled. “Oh, no,” she said, blinking. “The world is ending, isn’t it?”

“Well, I mean, yeah,” Rose said dismissively, “but not until tomorrow.”

All of the color drained from the vampire’s face. “Wait. What?”

Kara leaned in and whispered in Rose’s ear, “I hadn’t gotten to that part yet.”

Rose frowned. She turned to face Kara, feeling a little colder when Kara’s hand slipped away from her hip. “You said you’d warn everyone while I packed.”

Kara frowned worriedly. “Ah! I forgot to ask you to grab my battle-axe.”

“I got your battle-axe, Kara,” Rose laughed. “It’s kind of hard to miss.”

Relief washed over Kara’s face. “You’re wonderful,” she said, and then, she leaned in, clearly planning to kiss Rose—only to be stopped by Rose’s finger.

“Focus!” Rose said with a laugh. “You were supposed to warn everyone.”

“I am warning them,” Kara assured her. “I just haven’t had enough time.”

Rose gave her a skeptical look. “You haven’t had time to warn them that they’re all going to die, but you’ve had time to tell them I’m your new girlfriend?”

Kara grinned, her light blue eyes sparkling. “I’m very proud of myself.”

Rose tilted her head, flashing a sassy smile at her. “Aren’t you always?”

“Uhh, hello?!” the vampire interrupted. “You said the world is ending?!”

Teaser: Dating a Viking

The downside to dating a Viking… 😂 (Especially when she’s as brutal as Kara. 😂)

Happy Teaser Day! ❤️❤️❤️ I hope you like it! ❤

Excerpt:

“Look at you,” Kara said with a seductive smile, “commanding armies, as if you’ve done it your whole life.”

Rose’s blush deepened. She scrunched up her face in disbelief. “You may have forgotten, but I accidentally insulted an angry vampire in front of his peers.”

Kara lifted her wine-glass to her lips, sipping the dark liquid. “You and I have different understandings of the word accidentally, I believe,” she said playfully.

“It was an accident,” Rose said. “That doesn’t mean he didn’t deserve it.”

Kara laughed. “Don’t worry. He’ll be more…agreeable in the future.”

Rose’s eyes widened. “Kara,” she said hesitantly, “what did you do?”

Kara looked away, sipping her wine. “Zosime dances well, doesn’t she?”

Rose snatched the glass of wine out of Kara’s hand—which succeeded in getting her attention. Kara tried to hide her smile, but she was clearly amused. Rose reached out and grasped Kara’s hand—the one Kara had slyly hidden with the wine glass—and scowled. “Kara? Why are there blood-stains on your hand?”

Kara’s lips twitched. “Because there isn’t any running water down here?”

Rose frowned worriedly. “Please, tell me you didn’t dismember anyone.”

“I didn’t dismember anyone,” Kara recited, her light blue eyes sparkling.

Rose dropped her hand and rolled her eyes. “You’re lying. Aren’t you?”

Kara held her thumb and finger an inch apart and mouthed, “Just a little.

“Kara!” Rose said, her eyes wide. “Why would you do that?”

“Because he attacked you. Obviously,” Kara said, rolling her eyes. She took the wine glass from Rose’s hand. “Relax. It was just a finger. It’ll grow back.”

“You cut off someone’s finger?!” Rose exclaimed. “Are you insane?!”

“A bit, yeah,” Kara said, taking another sip of her wine. She chuckled, as she lowered the glass. “Don’t worry. He assured me there’d be no hard feelings.”

“Yeah, I’m sure I’d say that, too, if you sliced off my finger,” Rose said.
