I’m back with another excerpt from the bestselling Highland Shifters boxed set. This one is from Roots and Fang by Skye Eagleday and Red Phoenix
Excerpt from Roots and Fangs
“And aren’t you a lovely lass,” he said. He was tall and lean. His hair was a dark auburn and his eyes light green. “My name is Niall. And you might be?”
“Maeve,” she smiled. He looked like a very handsome man. But she could smell that he was really one of the Daoine Sith—her Scottish fairy cousins. They were such EEgits—too thick to realize she was one of their own…Well, what fun it would be to trick one of the Fair Folk. That would rack up more personal points than tricking humans.
“What can I order for you,” Niall asked, taking the seat beside her.
“A good scotch whisky, of course,” she grinned.
“Aye, life’s too short to be drinking bad whisky.” He placed an order with the bartender and then gave his full attention back to the Pooka. “So, how long will you be in town?”
“I’m not tied to time,” she touched her glass to his, “it’s a vacation for me and many years since I was back in the Highlands. I plan to take things slow and enjoy myself.”
“Have you family here?” He put the glass down and held her eyes with his. She could feel him trying to use his glamor on her. She smiled as she let it rush over her body, leaving her untouched.
“I’m the trickster,” she thought. “Not you.” Aloud she replied, “Not in Scotland, no. Irish through and through. How about you?”
She consciously enlarged her pupils to look more interested. Niall didn’t need his magic to seduce her. Pookas were always up for some fun.
“My family has deep roots in the Highlands and I’m in town to conduct a wee bit of business. Perhaps you’d do me the honor of having dinner with me this fine evening?”
“I don’t know what it is about you, but how could I refuse an offer of your company? In fact,” she put down her empty glass, “why don’t we go upstairs to my room and continue our conversation there?” She smiled to herself at how easy it was to manipulate a male Sith. It was a relief to skip all the courting and drag him into bed. Other than Fiona, it had been years since she had slept with anyone supernatural.
She didn’t wait for him to respond, but picked up her purse and started off towards the lobby, confident he would be right behind her after he paid for the bill. A few minutes later they were in the penthouse suite and she dialed room service to send up a bottle of scotch.
