And here is a sweeeet tease!!
Fierce Dawn by Amber Scott
The dance club smelled of human mating season—sweaty, perfumed and booze-ridden. Elijah ignored the stink and watched Sadie. The guy she stood talking to set Elijah’s teeth on edge. Something about the human’s vibration felt wrong. Off.
He couldn’t approach Sadie in this large a crowd. Not after her reaction to him in the library. If just seeing him had sidetracked her enough to have her crashing a book cart there, what would she do here?
Guilt slapped at him. The stricken look on her face as she scrambled to right the cart and replace the books branded into his memory. He shook off the image.
He had a responsibility. Protect Sadie until she could protect herself.
The music changed. Sadie’s vibration shifted with it. The lilt in her inner hum whispered his way. Bass thumped out of the speakers. Pale blue lights cascaded over the backlit dance floor. More bodies joined the clutch, moving and grinding to the beat.
Elijah’s chest pressed with the shift in her. He could feel her decide and when she nodded to the guy standing next to her then turned for the dance floor, Elijah’s energy cloak faltered.
The light flickered over her bare back as she zigzagged through dancers to the center of the floor. The human followed her, his signal’s tone growing more sinister. Elijah’s pulse kicked higher.
He swallowed, gathering his energy inward so as to remain undetected. Her back muscles outlined in shimmering light. The curve of her jaw. The line of her throat. Sadie swayed with the beat and Elijah could not look away. The music seemed to dance with her, an energy all its own, surrounding her in tendrils of light and beat.
A weight settled at the top of his gut.
Sadie ran her hands through her hair. The pale tresses fell to her back, swishing there. Did her hair tickle the surface of her warm skin? The weight in his stomach slid lower.
The realization jolted him, snapping his attention back to the whole of the club. Getting distracted would put her at risk.
Besides, he had no business reacting to any human. Even a changeling human.
Sadie left the dance floor. She began searching the perimeter, likely for the woman she came with. Elijah should know where her companion was. He didn’t. Anger tightened his scalp. He should know where her companion went. He couldn’t risk taking his eyes off of Sadie. They guy she’d danced with might have left her, but his vibration warned he’d be back.
Elijah remained still, focused on keeping his energy even keel. Plenty of time to rage later when detection wouldn’t matter. Sadie’s panic pushed out in waves. Elijah watched, ready to spring to her aid, willing her to find her companion, to stay calm.
Sadie paused, she turned. The light hit the hollow of her collarbone. Elijah’s pulse quickened, his cloaking faltered. Her mouth parted, her eyes widened. Adrenaline shot through him. For a sliver of a second Elijah swore, Sadie saw him.
All of him.
Right down to his trembling wings.
