EXCERPT FROM TEMPTED BY FIRE BY ERIN KELLISON
Sending a woman was not a mistake. Whatever momentary confusion her name had caused, someone had arranged it. No question.
Thane guided her to the house’s study, a hand just skimming the back of her silk blouse. “Can I get you something to drink?”
He stopped at the bar cart to pour himself a glass of Scotch. He needed to give himself something to do. Strangers unsettled him, pumping his blood just a little too fast to be completely safe. And a woman… Well, he’d not allowed one close for years now.
She walked deeper into the study, standing in the center of the room just before the overlarge desk. One of her arms touched the briefcase hanging near her hip. Not quite nervous. As Bloodkin, she should know to be at the very least wary of an old dragon. We bite.
She was shorter than most dragon-born. She had clear brown eyes that were level and circumspect. Her light brown hair was too straight to be natural, a layer cut to frame her face. She had a pouty mouth, merely glossed. Her narrow skirt fell to the knee. And her blouse barely showed the notch between her collarbones. She was curvy, but she wasn’t here to seduce. Nevertheless, his fingertips itched to touch her. All of her.
What did they mean by throwing a Bloodkin woman at a dragon near his change? A distraction? A peace offering? For his wife and child? No.
“The Heolstor brothers seemed just as surprised when they met me,” she said.
“Were they?” He held up his Scotch to remind her of his offer.
“Oh, no, thank you,” she said as she looked around the study. It wasn’t his, so she’d learn nothing if she were here to spy.
“How did your meeting with Dr. Buckley go?” she asked.
“The remains of the woman and child belong to me.” He’d only allow this farce to play so long, abiding by the Bloodkin Assembly’s strictures on inter-kin conflicts. In this modern age, the Triad who controlled the Assembly had become absolute on maintaining secrecy about dragon matters. No fighting. No fire in the sky. “And the Heolstors know it, too.”
“I wouldn’t be surprised,” she said and returned her direct gaze to him. “Nevertheless, there is a process.”
How politic. She seemed too intelligent to allow herself to be a pawn.
She went on to describe the actions she’d taken with the university and the donors. When he requested documentation, she reached into her briefcase and produced it. Efficient. Prepared. If she was a pawn, she wasn’t a helpless one.
“I hope you can understand,” he said, “how offensive this process is when the remains being kept from me are that of my late wife and son.”
The space between her brows wrinkled in what seemed like momentary confusion. Thoughts flickered behind her eyes—she hadn’t known about his loss?—but she kept her composure. “I will do my utmost to bring it to a speedy—”
Thane slapped the desk in frustration and felt one of its legs give with a crash. “Who sent you?”
She blinked at the noise, startled, but she didn’t shrink. “My boss informed me that a Bloodkin had to handle this matter, and so here I am.”
“Who? A name. Who directed you to take on this mediation?” Her involvement had to have somehow been arranged by the Heolstors. Have this woman for the one we took from you. He was not so easily bought.
A knock sounded at the door.
Thane ignored it.
The door opened anyway.
“My lord, if I may—”
Thane inclined his head over his shoulder, snarling. “Get out.”
When he looked back at Emerson Clark, her gaze was full of censure, but still no fear. If anything, she was showing more grit. “My boss is Martin Fraser.”
Thane was not so unaffected. “Fraser isn’t a Bloodkin name.”
“I’m not sure who’s Bloodkin and who’s not within the company. I just do my work as well as I can.”
Not sure who…? Unbelievable.
Of course, the Bloodkin had staff all over the world—lawyers and businessmen to manage concerns. Few were kin themselves, and those who were of the Blood, were young like this Emerson—a ridiculous name for a woman—and only there to educate themselves on how the world’s networks operated.
“Were you taught nothing as a child?” he spat.
The muscles in her clenched jaw twitched. Her eyes challenged him.
Fire and burn, how she got his blood up. Her scent was affecting him, too. All those modern products loaded with perfumes. He passed a knuckle over his mouth to breathe through it.
Her gaze dropped to his hand and lingered on his fingertips for a moment. These past years, the dragon growing emergent, his nails had grown black, thick, and slightly tapered.
She rolled her eyes.
Shock warred with a flare of his anger.
“I think I saw a fly.” She stepped back, putting space between them and exaggerating her movements as she looked around the room.
He couldn’t help himself. He laughed. What a little liar. Thane Ryce Ealdian had stalked this earth for over a thousand years, and she thought him a fool. Thought the signs of his imminent final shift were…what? An affectation?
“Are you Bloodkin or not?” he demanded.
“Are you sure?” She didn’t sound it and seemed utterly ignorant of their ways.
She swallowed hard and took a deep breath. “I apologize deeply for any offense I might have caused.”
He’d bet gold she was going to blame her “allergies” again.
“Really, the pollen is killing my eyes,” she said. “I’d better go.”
She made a wide berth around him to get to the door. “Mr. Chandler has my contact information if you need me. And I’ll be in touch when I hear from Dr. Buckley.”
“Stay,” he commanded.
She opened the study door. “I’m sorry, I can’t. I have a dinner date.”
“With whom? One of the Heolstors? Ransom or Locke?”
She smiled politely. “No, neither. Rest assured, this has nothing to do with the Bloodkin.”
And then she had the gall to turn her back on him and start down the hallway to the front door.
The dragon stretched within him. His vision went hazy, breath hot. His gaze lingered on her tiny waist and the sway of her rounded hips.
“My lord—” Matthew clutched the hilt of his short sword, sheathed at his belt under his suit jacket. Did he think to use it on his lord to save her? Had the whole world gone mad?
“I’ll be in touch.” Emerson Clark opened the door and walked out.
A Bloodkin woman of age, with no protection but her intelligent eyes and that clever mouth.
Thane gaped after her. “What is she?”
Matthew shook his head. “I don’t know. Bait? Or a provocation?”
Meant to force his final shift into dragon? Thane growled. “The first casualty, more like.”
Thane turned away from the sunlight, disgusted. “In what will most certainly become a war. Follow her. See that she gets wherever she’s going safely.”
