Cursed: Brides of the Kindred 13
by Evangeline Anderson
A girl with a past full of pain caused by his kind.
When the two of them go undercover on a dangerous mission will they bond?
Or are they Cursed to be apart forever?
“What is wrong with the female?” the male face boomed. The creature strode towards them, glaring at Charlie.
She backed away—all she could see was the two-faced monster that had terrified her so long ago. The recurring dream so dark and horrifying it made her afraid to go to sleep unless her sister was right there beside her. But Missy was gone now…had been gone for years…
Suddenly her back bumped into something hard and warm. She looked up to see Stavros standing behind her, looking down at her with obvious concern.
“Charlotte?” he said softly. “Are you well?”
“I…I…” The old fear robbed her of speech and she could only shake her head.
A sudden impulse struck her—the desperate urge to turn and bury her face in his broad, bare chest—to seek safety and shelter in his arms until the nightmare was past. He was so big and strong…clearly he could keep her safe!
Somehow she managed not to do it. She hung onto her dignity by a thread and stood her ground. But she didn’t try to shake off his hands when he placed them firmly on her shoulders. Instead, she huddled back against him, feeling his big body like a comforting wall, radiating heat and safety that surrounded her.
“Well?” The monster was getting closer and closer. Charlie couldn’t bear to look anymore—she closed her eyes.
“Step back.” Stavros’s voice was soft but it had an edge of steel in it. Pressed as she was against him, Charlie could feel it rumble through her entire body.
There was a little gasp from Nar’sa. “You must not speak so to a Joined One!”
“I will speak however I feel necessary,” Stav growled. “You are distressing my mate. Now step back.”
