Through the mist, near the garden’s boundary where the hills’ wildness began, an outline caught her attention. She vacillated between curiosity and fear. A man moved towards her window. The sunrise lightened the sky. It revealed Xavier’s dark broody face. A rush of adrenaline flooded her body. Her heart rate increased, its beats so loud they disturbed the room’s silence. Her mind was awash with questions, none of which she could answer. He stared at her window. He must recognise her. Startled, she stepped back. A frisson of alarm raced along her spine.’ ©Jane Hunt 2013

‘He reached a solid wooden door carved with intricate Byzantine designs. He howled once loud and prolonged then stepped back from the door poised for flight or fight, whichever came first. The door creaked open and a slight female creature stood in the doorway with an expectant look on her face. He bent his head. She stroked it with cold fingers so long and thin to the point of emaciation they seemed disproportionate to the rest of her body. Zane growled softly in greeting. Nightwalkers often used telepathy, but they wouldn’t open their minds to a stranger. “You’re welcome, wolf. Follow me. The council is ready to meet with you.” She indicated the door at the end of the long wide hallway, bedecked with renaissance treasures all adorned with thick dust and cobwebs.

Zane hesitated. This could be a trap, his wolf insisted. He risked opening his mind, but its tentative search found nothing. Insurmountable mental barriers forced his retreat.’

Sunday Snippet – The Dragon Legacy Jane Hunt

I’m so happy that I have my release date for ‘The Revenge Masquerade’ that I thought  I would share a snippet from the first book in the series, ‘The Dragon Legacy’ , for all those who haven’t read it yet.

These few lines feature Jasmine and Zane. Their adventure is told in ‘The Revenge Masquerade’.

‘Jasmine stared at Zane, her face a dichotomy of fear and intrigue. Curiosity won. “Is it dangerous when you become
a wolf? Can I watch?”

Zane couldn’t hide his surprise. “It’s private. Dangerous if you get too close.” Jasmine’s expression mirrored her disappointment. Zane gave in. “All right, you can stay, if you’re careful. Whatever you see, and whatever pain I’m in, you mustn’t interfere.”

“I promise.”

“I mean it, Jasmine. I’m out of control when I transform. I don’t want you hurt.”

“I promise no interference.” Jasmine raised her hands in surrender before she almost covered her eyes with them. “Zane!” Zane removed his clothes with no embarrassment. She stood transfixed.’

‘At last her suitcase appeared. She reclaimed it and joined the line of people in the main concourse of Verona airport. Amid the noisy crowds, she looked around for her uncle’s familiar face. Jostled from behind she pitched forward. Jasmine closed her eyes as immediate impact with the hard concourse floor seemed imminent. Instead she was hauled against an unfamiliar muscular chest less painful but still alarming. “Let’s get you out of here Cara.” Jasmine leaned back in her rescuer’s steely embrace. Compared to her the man was a giant. He stood way over six feet and her neck ached with the strain of looking up at him. Her rescuer’s attractive face radiated power and ruthlessness. He smiled briefly and started to forge a path through the crowds with a reluctant Jasmine in tow. Digging her heels in and refusing to move crossed her mind but the momentum, by which he propelled her through the crowd proved unstoppable.’

 ‘He pushed the horrific images from his mind and sought a diversion. The answer to his prayer walked down the stairs in a black lace dress, demure, with its buttoned up lacy collar and long sleeves. Jen’s hair restrained again, his fingers itched to free it, barely any makeup, pale skin added to her air of fragility. Jared captured and held Jen’s troubled gaze. Driven by a protective instinct he ran up the stairs. Enclosed in his warm grip, the coldness of her delicate hand alarmed him. He stroked the soft skin and encouraged the blood flow, the scent of roses drifted off Jen’s body. His arousal went into overdrive. She smelled so good. “Are you okay kitten?” ‘
