If you've read OF LOVE AND DARKNESS, this teaser is really going to excite you....
“What’s wrong with you?”
Gavin blinked at the person who spoke to him. His brain felt fuzzy, like he was drunk. He shook his head, trying to clear it. “Don’t know.” He tried to reach for the refrigerator and his hand swiped at air. “What the fuck?”
“You look ill.”
“I feel ill. I told Sydney we should have had steak instead of shrimp for dinner.”
“I don’t think it was dinner.”
Gavin shook his head again. His brain finally determined the other person in the room was Killian, the Fate who wouldn’t know a good time if it slapped him in the face. While Killian allowed them to stay in his home, Gavin knew it was only because he was obligated to do so because Sydney was a Chala. It definitely wasn’t because he felt any real desire to help their cause.
“You’re right,” Gavin acknowledged. “Would’ve hit me before now. So what the hell’s wrong with me?”
“Have you ever thought about your curse, Dark One?”
Gavin furrowed his brow. “Every single day of my life.”
“Do you ever wish the curse was lifted?”
“Of course I do,” Gavin said irritably. “That’s part of the curse. I feel every bit of my Rakshasa heritage, but I’m forced to act and feel like a Light One.”
“I can lift the curse.”
Gavin’s mind cleared for a moment, and he took a sharp intake of breath. “Don’t,” he said, as suspicion began to fill his mind. Surely not . . . ?
“Why not? You can have your life back. Return to being a Rakshasa, like you want. No more guilt. No more depression. No more emptiness.”
“No more Chala,” Gavin snapped. No more love. He doubted that thought would have any impact on the dangerously delusional Fate, though, so he tried another tact. “If my curse is lifted, it’s a death sentence for Sydney.”
The Fate shrugged. “She’s surrounded by Light Ones who love her. They’ll protect her.”
“By the time they even comprehend what’s going on, I will have already walked into her bedroom and torn her body limb from bloody fucking limb.”
