Stealing Fire by Angela Castle
Excerpt Heat Level: 2
Book Heat Level: 5
In the land of the Kell, Tuthal and Tamara are content in their new relationship until Tuthal uses Tamara as bait to steal back the soul he sold long ago.
Adalardo, King of Kell, has found his queen in Penny, an abused housewife from Earth. Adalardo must challenge Penny’s husband in order to claim her as his queen.
The soul demon, who is angered over the betrayal of Tuthal, seeks revenge, targeting not only Tuthal but all those around him.
When the demon strikes a blow right into the heart of both men, they must join forces in hope of defeating the evil that has taken their women.
Tamara’s feet dangled above the precipice. No matter how she tried to calm her racing pulse and rapid breathing, she felt the panic rising.
How had four weeks with the most gorgeous magical man she had ever met, turn into this? Tuthal, sorcerer of Kell had shown her the wonders of his alien land, brought her pleasures that left her weak, sated, and never wanting to leave his side. He had stolen her heart in a matter of days, yet she sensed there was a hell of a lot more to her magical sorcerer than he chose to reveal.
Tuthal’s tower, and the place he called home, remarkably resembled a lighthouse. It was positioned by a bay inlet along the eastern side of the Kell coastline. Tamara was curled up on a soft couch by a blazing crystal fire. She glanced up at him as Tuthal had come down the steps from the upper room.
“It is time, my Tamara.”
“Time for what?” She gave him a seductive smile; there was always time for some hot sweaty sex with her hunky alien sorcerer.
“There is someone I wish you to meet.”
“Okay, cool.” She jumped up, trustingly putting her hand into his. Tamara had seen the glint of his sword as the robes he wore parted slightly then he turned and waved his staff to open a red glowing portal; portals being a source of magical transport between worlds, and only Sorcerers like Tuthal were able to open them.
“Remember when the time comes, my beauty, I need you to scream for me.” Before she could question what on earth he had meant, Tuthal had tugged her though the red swirling portal.
Tuthal did not allow her time to think or react. He gripped her wrists, lifted her off her feet, and shackled her wrists either side of her head between two poles.
“Tuthal, what the hell are you doing?” She was trying to stay calm, hoping this was some kind of kinky game he wanted to play. Tuthal’s expression was passive, giving nothing away behind his miss-matched eyes.
“I need you to be my sacrifice to the soul demon, Tamara; you are the one I have needed for a very long time. Trust me Tamara, all will be well.” She watched as he had opened another portal and stepped through, leaving her alone in the darkness of what could only be described as hell.
“Stay calm, it’ll be alright, stay calm, stay calm.” Tamara repeated like a mantra trying to believe the words she spoke. The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy always had the best advice in situations like these; ‘Don’t panic.’ But that was easier said than done.
Stealing Fire has everything you could ever want in a fantasy romance! I absolutely LOVED it!
