The second book of my Blood Magic series releases on Monday. This one is Shifter's Delight.
His beautiful golden eyes with flecks of brown opened slowly to greet her. Sensing that he would be fine she turned to Micah which was easy since she knelt between them.
“Micah,” she said softly. “Wake up. We still have things to talk about remember?” She would discuss whatever he wanted, her wandering ways or anything, if only he would open his eyes.
“You gave me breath,” Merced sounded awed by this as he sat up beside her.
“Yes,” she nodded still focused on Micah. “But your brother is still weak. Is there anything you can do to help him?”
Merced stared at her for a moment before turning to his brother. He inhaled deeply and leaned into his brother’s face before exhaling. She watched in amazement as a golden glow seemed to leave his mouth and sink into Micah’s skin. Within mere seconds Micah was opening his eyes and sitting up beside her. Without thought Lynx launched herself at him raining kisses over his face.
“Micah,” she smiled. “I thought I had lost you.”
“Not so easily little cat,” he whispered.
“You should not be so foolish brother,” Merced interrupted them and Lynx would swear that she heard anger in his voice. “You almost lost your life and yet still it would not have saved me.”
“And yet here you are?” Micah stated.
“No thanks to you,” Merced replied. “It was your little cat that breathed life into me.”
Micah gasped and looked down at Lynx. “She breathed into you?” he asked and she was getting confused.
