It was slow, painful torture, but she refused to give in. #MidWeekTease on Seamus's Mate (Alpha Protectors) #paranormal #erotic #romance

Happy Hump Day, lovelies!

I'm happy to be back with you all and sharing a snippet from my latest release, Seamus's Mate (Alpha Protectors II). 
  
Enjoy! 





In today's snippet, we're having a look at some painful memories from our heroine...

Kaila stifled a yawn. She raised her head and looked out the window. The sky blazed with red and orange colors, and the clouds painted in a pale yellow. She’d been sitting here for hours. Her stomach rumbled, reminding her she hadn’t eaten anything all day. She sighed. She didn’t have as much information as she liked, but there was nothing to do about it. She couldn’t sit at home and wait any longer. She had do something to save her sister. Tomorrow, Kaila would venture into the Sin’s dimension and into Sloth’s lair. She shut her notebook and dug her fingers in her hair. She stretched languidly.  

When she opened her eyes, her gaze fell on the tall sycamore tree atop one of the rolling green hills which surrounded the Academy. She bit her lip and tried to evade the memory, but it was inevitable. One look at that place and the memory of Seamus came crashing over her. Her hands became clammy and her heart began to race as she stuffed her things in her bag. She refused to dwell on the past.

Yet, as she straightened and threw her bag over her shoulder, she found herself looking at the spot again. Sitting under that tree to read a book used to be her favorite thing until the incident with Seamus. He’d ruined everything.
 
How long had it been? Ten or twelve years at least, probably more. Her fingers dug into the strap of her purse, and she could feel the rough fiber against each tip. Who was she kidding? It’d been close to sixteen years. 
Nowadays, she had finally managed to stop thinking about him during the day. Sometimes, she was even capable of doing it at night. However, there wasn’t a single week in which she could say thoughts of Seamus hadn’t crossed her mind. It was slow, painful torture, but she refused to give in.
 
It didn’t matter that they were mates. Nor that her body went haywire every time he was near. The fact she dreamed about him almost every night and woke up yearning for him was of little consequence. No one, not fate, destiny, gods, or spell casters, could
force her to be with Seamus. She had a mind and body of her own and the right to decide whom she wanted to be with. He was not the man for her, not after what he’d done.
 
Kaila pulled her gaze from the hill. She didn’t have time for painful memories. She had to save her sister. It was all that mattered.
All she had left.

Kaila is His. His Mate. Forever. 

When Seamus discovers Kaila is in danger he sets out to save her. He couldn’t care less that she doesn’t want him there. His objective in life is to love and protect her. Besides, she might refuse to be with him, but her body knows better. With both their lives on the line, she can’t say no to his aid, can she? 

For years, she has ignored her feelings. Kaila’s mission was supposed to be easy: enter the demon’s lair and save her sister. Then, he came along. For close to twenty years she has been fighting against the mating pull. She has avoided Seamus at all costs, but now they’re both trapped in hell and she has nowhere to run, except, maybe, into his arms.
