Today’s Teaser Tuesday is a look at VAMPIRE REBORN from THE CALLING IS REBORN Vampire Novel Series. I just love exploring where FBI Agent Diana Reyes and vampire Ryder Latimer are going in their relationship and I hope you’re enjoying it as well. I’ll shortly have DARE TO LOVE, the next installment in the series, up for you and will be working on FIGHT FOR LOVE, the next step in Diana and Ryder’s story, for late 2017.
Here’s a little teaser from VAMPIRE REBORN.
Although his vampire blood called on him to rest during the day, Ryder regularly fought that need in his desire to be more human. To share time with Diana the way normal couples did. He had worked at his desk in the morning, checking on his various investments, and now the two of them were in the gym, working out.
Ryder moved through the steps in the kata, Diana beside him, shifting in unison.
A left turn to face forward followed by a low block with the left hand.
A step ahead with a sharp right-handed punch.
A quick whirl and back to the front for another low block.
They glided, pushed forward and back, almost as if in a ballet.
Pivot, forward, punch, and then retreat.
An upper cut followed by a drop of the hands to the hips with another one hundred eighty degree turn and a double high block.
From the corner of his eye, he measured Diana’s movements and strength since he hadn’t been the only one who had almost lost his life weeks earlier.
Not that you could tell from her fluid and powerful movements. There wasn’t a hint of hesitation or fragility to attest to the fact that his wife had not only been on death’s door, but that she’d recently given birth. Well, almost nothing. Her warrior’s body wore its lean muscled strength nicely, but the womanly curves were ever more rounded, especially her breasts.
Her command came in his head through their shared connection. Focus.
The warning made him stumble through the final punch and slide of the kata, but he recovered to end it gracefully.
They faced each other and bowed to acknowledge the completion of the exercise.
With the kata finished, she grinned and rolled her eyes. “Men. Show a little tit and it totally throws you off.”
Reaching out, he playfully squeezed her breast and said, “Nothing little about those.”
She slapped at him and he recognized the invitation in her gaze. “Think you can boss me around?” he asked.
“I know I can, remember?”
Yeah, he remembered all right. She’d beaten him more than once during their workouts, but he’d been training hard and this time, he planned on coming out on top. Literally.
“Prove it,” he challenged and put his hands up in a fighting stance.
She arched a brow and her demeanor grew a tad too serious for his taste. “Are you sure?”
“If you’re meaning to ask if I’m up to it – ”
“Are you?” she asked, but raised her hands and braced her legs slightly apart, ready for battle.
Her words stung more than any punch she could have landed. “Don’t patronize me, darlin’. I’m fit enough to protect you and Charlie.”
