In The Dark
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Mothers were supposed to love unconditionally. Mine didn't. In fact, she tried to kill me on my thirteenth birthday, when she saw just how different I was. My dad saved my life that night. He also took her away on an extended vacation, leaving me with an ever-absent uncle.
Five years later, solitude was something I lived by. I had to because I was different and people tended not to cope well with the unusual. In fact, they hated me for it, were even scared of me because of it.
I thought I was meant to live alone, until Isaac Grey took notice of me. He changed my life, taught me I wasn't the only one who was different, and I didn't need to be alone.
But with love comes sacrifice and then pain. Could I ever escape living in the dark?

I added, "And I should only be an hour." By the way, I'm going to see a pack of dogs, so if I'm not back
jump, they're right in front of me, so close I can reach out and touch them… No, touch the face that belongs to those red eyes. I want to. I need to. Even though a small amount of fright fills me, I still know I'm safe. The red eyes study me. "You're mine," the voice growls… When I jolted awake, I found an elbow in my left eye and one in my right rib. I pushed Jeremiah's arm from my face and Xavier's elbow from my rib and sat up. I looked around and smiled. They were all still sound

"I would get up and hug you, but I'm naked under here and that would just feel weird." I smiled, making her laugh. "Don't your clothes change with you?" "No. When I shift, my clothes fall away. Why, do yours?" "Yes." Sofia nodded. "I believe the difference is that Sofia is a shape-shifter, where Leila is a were. Your

She stayed that time because from my swaying, I couldn't convince her I'd be safe enough in a shower on my own. Not that she got in with me; she stood silently by the door. I turned off the water and Jezanna handed me a towel. I tried to be quick drying myself, but there was no hope in that. My body still ached too much
nodded. "Stay close to me," he ordered. She kissed his neck quickly. "I'll try." He groaned and shook his head. "This is bullshit. They're just girls," Jeremiah blurted, which was really the wrong move. "A girl who could knock your dumb-arse to the ground," Sofia snapped, her hands going to her hips. He snorted. "I wasn't myself then." She cocked her head to the side and asked, "Do you want to try it again?" Seraphine clicked her fingers together. "Can we stop with the foreplay and get
