PYROS (a DarkWorld Origins novel).
This short is the origin story of sexy Fire Mage Logan Westin from Skin Deep.
Logan Westin, is the
brooding hunk that steals Kailin Odel’s heart in SKIN DEEP. Even the fact that
she’s a panther shifter and he’s plain old human couldn’t stop the sparks from
flying between those two.
But Logan has his own little secrets, a history that weighs down on him,
memories that seem to escape him. PYROS tells you where Logan comes from both
in the origin of his powers and the source of his troubled mind.And remember, Pyros comes before Skin Deep chronologically.

 

 

Excerpt It was supposed to be a special day.

 

 

Logan Westin’s mother had promised to take him
to his favorite diner. The one he loved to look at when they walked past on
their way to the bus stop. Sometimes he’d slow down. Press his hands to the
window and peer inside. Logan loved the look of the red-cushioned seated and
the bright gleaming chrome.

 

 

Today was his chance to go inside and mother
had said she’d get them strawberry milkshakes.

 

 

Logan was so excited he couldn’t walk. He had
to hop or run, do something more than just stroll along as if their destination
wasn’t a place that made him so excited he wanted to laugh out loud.

 

 

But Logan didn’t laugh. Father wouldn’t
approve. And even though Father no longer lived with them, Logan knew he had to
be careful. For Mother and for… For? Who else was he meant to protect?

 

 

Logan frowned and skidded to a stop in front
of the diner. When he pushed the door open he inhaled the smells, and it all
made him giddy with excitement. Coffee, and cooking meat and the polish from
the black-and-white checkered linoleum beneath his feet. He pasted a huge grin
on his face as he walked inside. Mother followed closely by a little girl whose
laughter tickled his insides. She was as excited to be there as he was. They’d
waited for so long.

 

 

When Logan turned to pull her pigtails he
paused, stunned and confused. There was no one there. Even though her laughter
still rang through the diner, the haunting sound so filled with happiness, so
innocent and bubbly. He knew that voice. Knew if he reached out she’d hold his
hand and her skin would be soft and smooth. Knew she’d grab his hand and pull
him inside and accuse him of dragging his feet.

 

 

But there was nobody beside him.

Excerpt

 

 

Clutching the phone, I whispered Anjelo’s name into the device. The
darned thing promptly advised me to speak more clearly, its tone annoyingly
authoritative, seeming to laugh at me.

Damned machine.

Clearing my throat, I spoke his name again, this time restraining the urge to
shout at the piece-of-crap phone.

Dial tone. Thank Ailuros.

“Kailin? What time is it?” Anjelo grumbled, his voice thick with
sleep, grumpy and perplexed. He loved sleep, even more than his widely known
love affair with Italian pasta. Nothing the school cafeteria supplied would
ever tempt his taste buds. Anjelo had gourmet taste.

All he would’ve heard was my grunt of pain as I slid further to the floor, the
phone suddenly too heavy to hold to my ear.

“Kailin, you okay?” His voice gurgled as if I were underwater—hollow,
strange.

I took a deep breath and gripped the phone, pulling on every last dreg of
energy, and said, “Sure. Shot. Bleeding. But okay.”

My voice cracked on each syllable, and I barely heard his urgent request for my
location. I scowled at the phone, again so heavy it began to pull my hand to
the floor, inch by inch.

Why was he shouting at me? I could hear him perfectly.

I spoke with a false calm. “I’m at the center.” Then I let the phone
fall, unable to bear its incredible weight.

Scrambling. The knocking sounds of someone bumping into things in the dark.
Muffled oaths, and then a slamming door.

Good. Anjelo’s coming.

ExcerptI was too light-headed to do anything but sink to the floor, my knees at last losing the fight to hold me up. The heavy-bottomed drinking glass slipped from my grasp falling straight to the wood floor, smashing into a million pieces. As the glass hit the ground water burst from it like a geyser, spraying droplets all over the kitchen. And all over me.

Good job, Odel. Now who’s going to clean up this mess?

I lay where I fell, my face resting close to my poison-wreathed arm. I stared at it as it throbbed and pulsed, as if the poison had taken on a life of its own and was just waiting for the next moment to advance further into my flesh.

becsuse they don’t want you to.
You’re much better off not asking any questions.

Mel
Morgan is a Master Teleporter. She can move through the Veil into the
otherworldly planes. A handy skill when looking for missing people. It’s
a lonely job, but with her gargoyle partner she’s never minded lonely.

Until
a certain super-hot Djinn walks into her life. He needs her help to
find someone he loves. And Mel can never say no to someone in need. But
the road to helping Saleem is fraught with secrets better left
uncovered.

Can Mel and Saleem dodge demons and sorcerers long enough to save the ones they love?

This book is part of the DarkWorld world but can be read on its own.

Saleem
stared out the window at the truck. At the back of Morgan’s dark head of hair.
She raised her eyes to the rear view mirror and met his gaze. And for that one
moment he couldn’t look away.

Neither did she.

Then she raised her hand up high
enough for him to see it and flipped him off. Saleem grinned.

I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognize that reading
was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of
the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am
essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practice
given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers,
my confidantes… I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It’s a
fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of
each others loves – it works wonderfully…
 
My heart is currently broken in two. One half
resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still
longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer
downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been
transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha,
beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly
inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands – I shall forever
remain cross-eyed.
