Chivalry or something more…

Romance author Jenna Jaxson came up with something to fill the (hopefully temporary) void of Sweet Saturday Samples–which I do miss along with its illustrious creator J. Gunnar Grey (I hope everything’s peachy for you, dear!) In the meantime, Jenna suggested Sweet Nothings, so for this week, here’s a tidbit of PASSION’S SACRED DANCE.

My heroine Stacy is having a really bad day when a handsome, mysterious, new friend steps in to save her from disrupting the peace of her gallery with a fist fight with a very strange foe:

Aaron turned to face her. “This should never have happened,” he said. “Forgive me, Stacy.”
Surprised to see his medallion glowing with a soft golden light and his eyes an unearthly shade of green, Stacy gasped. She stepped back only to be jostled aside as the patrons slowly filed into the parking lot.
Wondering why the woman threatened her and why Aaron felt the need to rescue her, Stacy bent to pick up a broken glass—what had once been the discarded dishes before the fight started.
What was going on? Why was Aaron Fielding even here? A second more and she would’ve shoved the woman into her security guards’ hands.
“Thanks, but I didn’t need your help,” she said.
Peering through the crowd pushing through the back door, she could just make out the flutter of Miss Silver Eyes’ skirt. “What was that woman on?”
“Better to ask what she is,” Aaron said. Then he shook his head. “No. You don’t want to know. We were lax in our vigilance, and this intrusion never should’ve been allowed.”
His gaze came back to hers as the door shut behind the last patron. The glow in his eyes was gone. Had she hallucinated?
“I give you my solemn vow that I’ll do everything in my power to see it doesn’t happen again.”
“Do you?” She stood, glaring at him. “And who are you?”
“Is that truly important?”
She had a sneaking suspicion she knew the answer, but wanted his confirmation. She’d heard fables all her life about women and fated love with mystery men.
Was the tale just the stuff of silly bedtime stories? Was Aaron merely defending her from an attacker as any gentleman might? Or did his purpose spring from something other than chivalry?

Passion’s Sacred Dance

Battling mounting debt, Stacy Macken is determined not to lose her historic art gallery. When Aaron Fielding appears and offers to help, she fights to keep the attraction sizzling between them from clouding her judgment. He may be her savior in disguise–but can she trust him?

Aaron intrigues her with tales of the Tuatha dé Danann, sworn warriors who protect humanity from the monsters seeking their destruction. If Aaron can prove what he claims, she would give up anything to help–even the gallery he claims is sacred ground. But with her property set to stage the next epic battle, she needs answers. An old family diary will confirm the ancient legend is true, if only they can find it in time.

If the battle is lost, the enemy will take control of Earth for the next five hundred years. Stacy and Aaron’s budding love might only complicate things.


As usual, the book is available at Amazon should you like to see more.
