Betraying the Jackal – Sons of Anubis #3

Here’s a snippet of the third Sons of Anubis story, featuring Rana and Hector:

Rana’s only about 500 years old or so, and this Daughter of Isis is a healer. In fact, she’s completed med school and did a stint in Doctors Without Borders a couple of decades ago. Hector is second-in-command to Markus, the leader of the Sons of Anubis and has a well-known and understandable dislike for Isis witches.  Which will make their story full of passion and angst and betrayal. Did I mention passion?  Here’s a very rough snippet of their story that I just wrote this week:

“Are you using me?” he suddenly demanded. “So that you can have a daughter?”

She stilled, the mistrust and buried pain in his eyes stealing her breath. How could she make him understand? “No. That’s not why I’m here with you.”

“Then why?”

She reached up slowly to cup his cheek, giving him time to move away if he chose. “Because you make me feel things I’ve never felt before. Wonderful things. None of the others have done that. Only you seem able to scatter my thoughts, fire my blood, and make me hunger for your touch and taste.”

“Rana.” He loosened his grip and then he was inside her again, scattering her thoughts, firing her blood, and making her hunger for his touch and taste.

“I’m not using you.” Harshness sharpened his features as he stared down at her. “I’m not.”

She softened, receiving the answer to the question she didn’t dare ask. “Okay.”

“You tie me in knots,” he continued, his hips moving as if he couldn’t help himself. “You consume my thoughts and invade my dreams. Your scent fills my lungs and soothes my soul. And this.”

He thrust against her, causing them both to groan. A slow glide out and a slower glide back in left them shivering with want. “This proves to me that paradise is real.”

I am so loving this story! This has been such a fun series to write and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!
