Today is tidbit Thursday! My favorite day of the week because I get to share a little snippet of a book already published or even a snippet from the WIP I'm focusing on. Does anyone else like to go back and read something again just because you haven't in a long time? I know I haven't read His Salvation in a long time and I am going to sit down and read it again.
For those wondering, is there going to be a sequel? Yes. Some point in the future I will have a sequel for it. I already have a basic plot outlined for it as well. Just need to get busy writing.
Haven't read His Salvation yet? You're in for a treat! ;)
In an attempt to atone for his sins and find some solace, ADA Agent Gabriel Romero helps other Deviants in need. But with threats from both sides—Normals and the Deviants who despise them—he finds it harder and harder to outrun his ghosts, especially after a difficult mission to rescue twin brothers held at an enemy compound, where Gabriel meets Alexander Ryker. Gabriel finds his new charge unexpectedly attractive, and that’s a complication he does not want—one he thinks he doesn't deserve.
Despite the frosty reception from the stubborn agent who rescued him, sheltered telepath Alex feels an instant connection through the pain he sees in Gabriel's eyes, and he does everything he can to gain his attention. The realities he must face while mastering his ability are hard, but failing to learn to defend himself is not an option. Soon he'll need his newfound strength to convince Gabriel he deserves to live and love again.
“WHAT the hell is this?” Gabriel demanded, staring down at the two little foil packages in his hand before glaring at Preston.
Preston lifted an eyebrow at him. “If you don’t know what they’re for, then maybe we need to have the ‘talk’.” He made air quotes on the last word.
Gabriel scowled at him. “You know what I mean, smartass!”
Preston laughed for a moment and then grew serious. “Well, it is pretty obvious something changed between you and Alex these last couple of days. Hayley and I just wanted to make sure you were being safe.”
Gabriel almost choked at Preston’s words. “We didn’t… Alex and I haven’t….”
“Then they’re just in case.” Preston shrugged.
“I am not going to have sex with Alex,” Gabriel snapped, clenching his hand around the condoms.
“Why not?” Preston asked.
“Several reasons, Pres! He’s too young, I’m too old, and we’re all running for our lives right now. Do I need to go on?” Gabriel folded his arms over his chest, shaking his head.
“Bullshit,” Preston replied lazily.
Gabriel’s mouth dropped open in surprise. “What?”
