Favorite Quote Friday—The Lasaran

Happy Friday! Thank you so much, everyone who has pre-ordered The Lasaran! You made it an Amazon #1 Bestseller!



I was so thrilled by your reactions when you realized the hero is Ami's brother. ๐Ÿ’™ He's been wanting me to tell his story for a very long time, so I thought he would be the perfect hero with whom to launch the new series. I can't wait for you to read it!

For those who are new to my books, don't worry. You don't have to read my Immortal Guardians books to enjoy The Lasaran. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

A lot of audiobook fans have been asking about the audiobook. The Lasaran will release in audio on the same day as the ebook and paperback—April 21st. Kirsten Potter is narrating it and has already finished recording. Woohoo!!

It's time for Favorite Quote Friday! Today I thought I would give you a first peek into the pages of The Lasaran. This snippet features the hero and heroine—Taelon and Lisa. This is the first time they meet in person, and the hero is so wounded that speaking aloud increases the pain, so he speaks to her telepathically:
_______________________________

“Is this really what you look like?” The words barely emerged a whisper. “Or is this the illusion?” Lisa desperately wanted this to be true.

This is really what I look like.

“It isn’t another trick… like the monster?”

This is my true appearance. I may be able to project images into your mind and make you see something else, but I can’t actually change my form. If you need confirmation, touch me.

Touch him where? He was riddled with wounds.

But she needed to know.

Reaching out, she tentatively rested a trembling hand on his shoulder. His skin was cool and bore a light coating of perspiration. She drew her hand down over his biceps.

His Adam’s apple bobbed, and something Lisa couldn’t identify flickered in his eyes.

“I’m sorry,” she said, her voice hushed while the alarm continued to blare. “Did I hurt you?”

No. It’s… You’re the first person who has touched me—not with intent to harm, but with kindness—in a very long time.

His words broke her heart.

Thank you, everyone, for sharing in my excitement! I hope you'll enjoy Taelon and Lisa's story.
