Excerpt:
Breathing Her Air
By Lacey Thorn


Vulcan gave a cry from the air above, jerking Alea out of her thoughts. It was harsh and full of warning and she quickly searched the area for what Vulcan sensed. There was nothing…and then there was way too much. A man stepped out of the trees mere feet in front of her, followed quickly by another one. They were both well over seven feet tall, huge even compared to her cousins who stood seven feet even. They had shoulder length brown hair streaked on the sides with a deep silver that seemed to catch in the sun, and she would have said that they were identical until they looked up and clashed gazes with her. One had a piercing gaze that hooked her and wouldn’t let her go. She had never seen such a pure silver before. Except on the beak and talons of her best friend, Vulcan.
As a slow smile took place on his lips another caw filled the air. Alea was poised to run when the unthinkable happened and the bird that called none friend but her landed on the arm of one of the warriors in front of her.
“You must be Alea,” the one with the piercing gaze said and slowly headed toward her. “We’ve come a long way to find you.”
And then it hit her. These were the Xandova brothers, her chosen mates. These two men would claim her and mate with her and she would belong to them. As fear took over Alea was paralyzed, unable to move or breathe. The last thing she heard was a harsh gasp as the black cloud obscuring her vision overtook her and her knees gave way. The ones she had hoped wouldn’t show were here. And they had come for her.


And this is only the beginning of the end...more to come in the final book of this exciting series.

I liked the phrase, "the bird that none called friend ..." Very elegantly worded. Your series is startling. I admire your creative imagination. I have never tried to create a different world from the one we live in.

Speaking of crows. They are a damned nuisance in Victoria. We have way too many. They drop into our garden daily and drink from our nice clean bird bath. The only good thing about them, the rats won't come out when the crows are around.

LOL Love the crows then as I am phobic of rats! And thank you so much for the praise on this series. I'm working on the final book and it is really hard because I feel as if I am saying goodbye to family. I'm sure you know how that feels!
