Excerpt snippet #10 Nov. 23

 King Roan narrowed his eyes at me.

A sudden stab of dread pierced my gut like a cold blade. “I-I’m sorry. What year is this?”

The king sneered. “The Christian monks call it the year of our lord 450.”

I gasped, struggling to breathe, and staggered right into the king’s arms. When the commander tried to intervene, the king waved him off and steadied me with his strong embrace. He smelled of sandalwood and sweet woodland herbs, and my body tingled, my knees trembling.





(This is a standalone story in the Shadow-walkers series.)

*Erotic paranormal romance*

Time can’t separate them, but fate can.

Do you like time travel stories with a hot elven king and lots of twists? The women are the rock stars here, and they command the supernatural alpha males in their lives. Grab a copy now and enter the sexy, scary, and thrilling world of Shadow-walkers. This compelling romance will capture your soul.

She’s the most powerful Shadow-walker…and the most vulnerable.

Dina, the wild, strong-willed drummer for Hecate’s Fury and wearer of the Gateway rune, is thrust back in time where she meets a tall, handsome faery king. Beneath all the beauty of the aes sidhe city lurks a dark, menacing danger, and nothing is as it seems. She may be the only one to help them, but the cost to her is high.

Beware a kiss in moonlight.

Roan may be the only male to tame Dina’s restless spirit, the king’s cold nature both enticing and challenging. However, another covets her Shadow-walker and bruja powers. The rival’s obsession is relentless, his magic difficult to resist, even for a Shadow-walker.

Past and present collide as both males vie for her. Only the power of love and sacrifice can unite her with her true mate.

That is some ancient history! 450! Woah! I also enjoy her modern perception in this historical world.

AD 450 is quite the shocker! Great snippet, Kelley!

This is soooo cool! And I don't suppose it's often that strange women get close enough to fall into the king's arms. This snippet is full of surprises! LOVE! Happy Medieval Monday, Kelley!
