This week’s #MySexySaturday ‘s theme is Talk Sexy To Me. The excerpt I chose is from Troy, book 12 in the Whitedell Pride Series, that came out on September 1.
“So you’re half harpy now?”
Troy shrugged. “Not sure it’s half, but… yeah.” He waited for Emery to understand exactly what it meant, but Emery only smiled at him and stroked one finger down Troy’s cheek. “It also means that I’m half… half woman.”
Emery’s eyes widened just a bit before he schooled his expression. He looked at Troy, his eyes moving from Troy’s face down his body to stop at Troy’s groin. Emery cocked a brow. “You look all male to me.”
Troy blushed. He couldn’t help it, not with his pale skin.
Emery smirked. “That red looks very good on you, and I love your freckles.”
Emery’s words had two results. They made Troy blush even harder, and they made him smile. “Thanks.”
“You’re not a monster, Troy, and you’re not a woman. I understand you’re having a hard time accepting everything, and it’s normal, but it won’t get better if you don’t step out of your shell.”
“I just… I don’t want to see pity in people’s eyes, or fear. I know I’m not normal anymore.”
Sometimes you have to make the best with what life gives you, even if it’s something you don’t want.
Troy has been handed an ugly hand by life. He was kidnapped, his DNA was tinkered with, and he doesn’t know what or who he is anymore. Even if the pride has accepted him without questions, he hides in his room, scared of what he could see in the other peoples’ eyes.
Emery is used to a lonely life. He lost his family years before to the Krsnik wars, and he’s happy to have found new friends within the pride. He’s even happier to find out his mate lives in the mansion, even if Troy makes approaching him difficult.
Troy pushes Emery into mating, scared that Emery will flee once he finds out just how wrong Troy has become. He doesn’t, though, not even when something incredible, something no one could have forecasted, happens. Will they be able to face their unsure future together, or will one of them crumble under the pressure?
