Kissing a Fae Prince

Here’s a sneak-peek excerpt from King of Always from Raff’s perspective. It’s not every day a girl kisses her first fae prince, and in a tower cell too…

“You know I cannot lie.”

“Yeah, but I can. And if I want to, I have every right to call in the bargain we struck on Mount Cúig and make you kiss me.”

“And you would be a fool to waste your command on something I would give you freely a thousand times over.” I place her palm on my chest. “Feel the pound of my heart, the heat of my skin, then look around and count the nightmares in this cell. This, sweet Isla, is not how I pictured our first kiss.” I touch her cheek, marveling at the silky texture. “I imagined a lavish feast in my chambers. A roaring fire in the hearth. Fine wine. Soft furs. I want you to feel like a princess when I touch you, not a prisoner.”

“And I want warmth and comfort. And, just for a change, a zing through my blood that doesn’t come from fear or confusion. I want heat and fun. So I’m asking you to give me this now just because I want it. Let me have power over something. Take my mind off our reality, Raff. I don’t want to think about where we are anymore.”

Even if I were dying, I could not deny her. As her cherry lips move slowly closer, I frame her face with my palms, losing my last scrap of sanity in the inky depths of her eyes.

Chains chink between us—but they may as well be fashioned from feathers. A soft palm cups my shoulder. Her lashes drop. Her mouth opens—an intake of breath. I press my lips to hers and the poison sizzles in my blood, then stops, halting its progress toward my coal-black soul.

She presses closer, her hands going to my face. Our tortured breaths combine, panting in sync. Our mouths slide deliciously, pulses pounding, skin on fire. Minds combusting.

The cell disappears. I’m cleaved in half and dragged two ways—one part joins the endless galaxies that spin the fabric between worlds, the other melts slowly, and with every soft moan and ragged sigh, merges with Isla’s being.

This girl is mine. I am hers. Sealed with a kiss. My fiery queen.

  1. You know, I’d really like it if the new book were available. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to read it! I got completely immersed in the first one and now I have to wait for the second and it’s like that black poison is eating away at my soul instead. END THE CURSE!! RELEASE THE NEXT BOOK!! Pretty please?

    1. Lol!! I’m very sorry to advise that you’re just gonna have to stay cursed, dear Aquarius, for SIXTEEN MORE DAYS!!! Only then, if you survive, shall I release you. 🌞 Wishing you all the best until then! Love J. 🥰🥰🥰

      1. Son of a DRAYGONET!! How could you DO THIS TO ME?! I DEMAND A RECOUNT!! Sixteen days?! How will I ever survive?! All my love, Aquarius. 🥰

      2. Bwahahaaa!!!!! 🧛‍♀️ *** rushing off to insert Son of Dragonet! into some dialogue 🤣 love that so much! Now, tell me, how shall I credit you in the back of the book? As Aquarius? 🤔 Or are you willing to divulge your other evil aliases? Hmmm? Hmmm? ❤️ from a fellow aquarian!

  2. OMG I’m dying!! 🤣🤣🤣 For real, I’m actually a Libra 🤣 but if you want my other evil aliases, please send me an email and I’ll divulge them to you. One of them is Aquarius Black. I stream on Twitch when I can. And if you ever need more funny curses to throw into your books, let me know! I have all sorts that I use in public for fun. Usually food-related. ❤️❤️

    1. 😮😮😮 Email on it’s way!!! My moon’s in libra, so I’m still claiming you as one of my own! 🧡🧡🧡

      1. I love it!! I just may have to re-read Prince of Never while I wait for the next book! I’m certain there were parts that I may have missed and not realized it the first time around. I’ll be looking for that email! 👍

  3. I just finished Prince of Never and couldn’t put it down, I can’t wait to read King of Always! I loved Rafe and can’t wait for his story, we really have to wait 16 more days?? I will only wait if you tell me that Kian gets his ass kicked in one of these books. He is such a douche canoe. With “friends” like him, who needs enemies?

    1. 🤣🤣🤣 Yeesssss–Raff should definitely punch him in the nose. Several times! But, spoiler alert, you’re gonna have to wait for book 3 for Kian to get what he deserves. But, oh boy, by then, he’s going to deserve one helluva comeuppance! So happy you enjoyed Prince of Never!!! 16 more days till more… bwahahahaha!!! ❤️❤️❤️

  4. Ok, knowing that Kian gets what is coming to him will make the wait worth it for the 3rd book! Counting down for book 2!
