Read this excerpt from Blood Ties, the latest Urban Fantasy novel from Julie Nicholls. Available in eBook, paperback and audio book.
Keagen sauntered into the first bar he came across. It was dark and dingy and only two other people took up space at the bar. Scanning the room thoroughly before pulling out a stool, there was a sudden rush of blood to his cock when the pretty bartender greeted him with a smile.
“Hey, stranger, what can I get you?”
“Now you’re asking.” Keagen grinned. “Coffee, please.” He couldn’t help but notice her scent and smiled. She had to be the girlfriend. If he dropped in, that would make for an interesting meeting.
Lyssa poured the tall, dark, and extremely handsome punter a mug of coffee.
“Are you new in town or just passing through?” Furnishing him with a cheery smile and wide eyes she couldn’t resist a flirt. Aside from Gabriel, he was the only other good-looking man she’d set eyes on.
“Oh, I’m here to check on family.” He sipped his coffee while glowering over the rim at Lyssa. Noticing pert breasts with peaked nipples, his cock thickened under the restraints of his jeans.
“You have family? Here?” Raising both brows Lyssa wondered who in Dewburn Falls had relatives this hot. “What’s your name?”
Keagen breathed deeply before pursing his lips. He wasn’t up for sharing right now although he was sure he could fob her off with a line. “I’m adopted, so my name wouldn’t be familiar to you but you can call me Keagen.” He leaned against the counter. “What’s your name, princess?”
“Lyssa.” She beamed. She liked the way he smiled. He was utterly delicious in a wicked‘I’ll rip out your heart’ kind of way.
“That’s a pretty name for a pretty lady.” He flashed another dazzling smile. “Are you spoken for, or may I ask you out to dinner?”
Blushing, and suddenly feeling cornered, Lyssa grimaced. “Yeah, I’m kind of involved with someone, but thanks for asking.”
“Well I guess I’ll have to eat alone, then.” Keagen thought for a moment. She had to be involved with his prey. He snapped his head toward the door and watched another young and attractive female move closer.His brow arched. Dewburn Falls had much to offer. His nostrils flared as the scent drifted his way. Wolf. Another one. There’s no wonder he’d moved here;there’s wall-to-wall pussy. Well, sort of.
