Gracelan has dreams of being a world class fashion designer. She receives an inheritance from her aunt that lets her pursue the dream. At the house, she discovers an odd request, to bring libations to a clearing on the property and introduce herself. Thinking the demand a little silly, she does it anyway.
The next morning Gracelan notices a gift on her back porch. When she repeats the ceremony the second night, a handsome stranger knocks at her door only to return the basket she had brought to the meadow. Intrigued by the visitor, Gracelan learns Lorian is a fae and he wants her more than anything. Drawn to him beyond any other man, it isn’t until she uncovers her secret past that they can be together.
I spun around and saw Lorian leaning against the tree. He was tan in the light with a glittery quality to his skin. My breath stopped in my throat when I saw him. He was beautiful. His lips were twisted into a breathtaking smile and it took all my will to stand my ground and not go to him.
“What do you want?”
“You.” He beckoned me over to him, wiggling his finger at me.
I tried to stop myself from going to him, but it seemed I had lost all my will power. He had control over me. This place was his to command and so was I. I knew it was a dream, but I wasn’t going to force myself to wake up. All of me desired to see where this would lead.
“Why me?” I stood a few inches from him.
He reached up and flipped the hair from my shoulder. His long finger traced my cheek then my lip. “I have my reasons. Tell me to leave and I will. Tell me you desire me and I’ll infuse you with a passion you’ve never known before.”
