This weeks snippet is from my paranormal about an Egyptian goddess who falls for a mortal man, Seducing Damian. Enjoy!
Seconds before she responded, a large man appeared at her side. Damian felt dwarfed by him and his stomach churned over the loving and familiar smile she sent the man. He had to swallow back the bile that rose in his throat.
Finally, her attention fell to him. She met his gaze and smiled at him this time. “Hello.”
Damian became as hard as stone at the mere sound of her voice. It was the same voice from his dreams. Only this time…she was real.
“I’m Damian. Professor Damian Keith.” He offered his hand while taking in her beauty.
“My name is Amenitré Seini.” She placed her soft hand into his. The feeling of abandonment he had felt when his mysterious presence left him vanished at her touch. “And this is Talios.”
It was so hard for Damian to tear his gaze away from his dream woman. Her beauty was so powerful it actually hurt. Placing his gaze on the man beside her, he nodded. “Nice to meet you.” His hand stayed clasped with hers, the softness of her skin evoking a maelstrom of emotions within him.
Coal black eyes assessed him. “Professor Keith,” was the reply that the giant emitted.
Indigo met tawny as Damian focused back on the woman who held his gaze directly. She did pull her hand free of his grasp, but her eyes stayed upon him. “I have to tell you, I love your name. It is very beautiful,” he admitted, even while he admired how her dress embraced her figure.
“Thank you.” One dark hand gestured around the room. “A lover of artefacts, I see.”
“Definitely. I love all antiquities, but mostly ones from Egypt.” He boldly raked his gaze up and down her body, ignoring the tall man beside her. Damian couldn’t help it. Finally he was able to put a face to the lover he’d had in his dreams. He wasn’t about to pass on the opportunity. For the first time in his life, museums of Egyptian artfeacts weren’t the most important thing for him to see.
Sekhmet smiled. She turned her gaze to the man beside her. “Thank you, Talios. I’m fine now.”
Talios nodded. “As you wish, Goddess. I will be near”.
“Nice to meet you, Professor Keith.”
“And you,” Damian said, barely glancing at the man. The moment her tall protector left, he reached out with one hand and stopped inches from touching her face. “I feel like I know you.”
She arched a brow. “You do.” Her eyes never left his face.
Before he could say anything in response, a hand grabbed his arm and Angela inserted herself beside him. “You do, what?” she asked.
Amenitré’s eyes grew harder and Damian noticed as she looked at the blonde woman hanging on him. “I was just telling Professor Keith that he had an open invitation to come to my house and view my personal collection of Egyptian artefacts.”
Angela tilted her head to the side, “And who are you?”
“Amenitré Seini.” she gazed between the two people before landing back upon Damian.
Angela gasped. “I’ve heard of you. Your father is Amon Seini, the famous Egyptologist.”
“That’s the rumour.”
