Welcome to another week of Book Hooks, the weekly meme hosted by the MFRW Authors Blog. Here?s a chance each week for readers to get hooked on a new book! Authors each share a short excerpt from their books. If you enjoy the sample, consider purchasing the full book.
This scene takes place between Orix (the king) and Raik (the Vhalgenn). They’ve loved each other since they were old enough to say the words, but his royal, arranged marriage separated them. Raik has come back to deliver the message of a battle, and is alone with him for the first time in ages. It opens with the king speaking.
“Vhalgenn, I promise. She’ll never know.”
“No!” I moved away from him. “She’s no fool. She’s your queen and she’s risking her life to have your child. The least you can do is be faithful.”
The look of horror on his face tore out a piece of my heart. Then I realized he was looking past me.
His pregnant queen stood in the darkness, right outside the door.
