Exclusive Excerpt from Archangel’s Shadows by Nalini Singh (& Giveaway!)


I don’t know anyone who has read Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series and not liked it. I recommend a lot of books, and this urban fantasy series with plenty of heat factor continually hits the mark. Singh’s writing is stellar and her characters are engaging. So, everyone at VBC is eager to read the next installment Archangel’s Shadows.

As Archangel’s Shadows doesn’t release until Oct. 28, we needed a taste now. Nalini was kind enough to oblige us with an exclusive excerpt. We also have a giveaway of any earlier Guild Hunter book at the end of the post. This means you can get caught up on the series. (And you should!)

Excerpt from ARCHANGEL’S SHADOWS by Nalini Singh (October 28th, 2014)

Archangel's Shadows by Nalini Singh // Out October 2014Once out of the Enclave, he turned the bike in the direction of the Adirondacks. The night wind whistled past them and other vehicles overtook on the left because he kept the speed undemanding, the snow on the sides of the road glittering in the beam of his headlight when they passed out of the more populated areas, the trees clean silhouettes against the night.

Flicking on the microphone and speaker system embedded in his helmet with a tilt of his head, he said, “There’s something about going for a ride with a beautiful woman wrapped around me.”

It took her a couple of seconds to figure out the system on her end. “Since when is a hand on your shoulder ‘wrapped around you’?”

The old sadness and older hurt he’d sensed in her since the instant she came face-to-face with her brother was still there, but he could hear his Ash rising through it. “Ah, perhaps I am simply indulging in a fantasy. Foolish male that I am.”

A snort sounded from behind him . . . but then she slid her arms around his body, pressing her chest flush to his back, the strength of her grip making him feel possessed, owned. The contact eased the aged, potent need inside him enough that his chest no longer hurt, air filling his lungs again.

“So, I ask and I receive. You’re in a generous mood.”

“Don’t get too cocky, cuddlebunny.”

His grin was bright. “What’s a cuddlebunny?” he asked, genuinely curious.

“You, at the moment. Sexy, non?”

He loved it when she teased him. “Oui, if it makes you cuddle so close.”

Her laughter was husky, and it was all he needed to hear.
