In the Tower of the Wizard King #TuesdayTeaser 5

It’s release week! Can’t believe it’s here already and I’m super excited to have the book finally out. Here is today’s final teaser to whet your appetite! If you want to learn more about the book, I’m blogging over at The Romance Studio today! Click here. There’s also an except posted here! EXCERPT: His pupils expanded and his eyes turned black, a shadow of rage creasing his features and changing him from handsome to frightening. Her hand landed on her dagger as she whipped it out as quickly as he gave the signal to his men to charge her. She flung the dagger at the first one on her left. It hit him square in the chest. He staggered backward, his hand clasping around the hilt. The other three had drawn their swords but she was much faster than they could even hope to be. It was something she had taught herself over the years—a way to control her magic and fuel her body with it. She had discovered, quite by accident, she could speed up her movements which certainly came in handy when faced by three royal guards who meant business. In a second, she had the bow in her hand and an arrow nocked against it. She fired the first round then reloaded. She killed the third guard. One more and the fourth one was dead at her feet. She nocked another arrow and this time pointed it at Niall, holding the string taut. Niall hadn’t even moved…

In the Tower of the Wizard King #TuesdayTeaser 4

Another Tuesday, another Teaser! Here’s another little snippet from the book. Enjoy! EXCERPT: It was in that instant she understood why Cian didn’t know who she was. In the flickering half-light of the dank dungeon, she could see her reflection in a pool of water on the stone floor. Her face had been beat almost to beyond her own recognition. She had two black eyes. Her cheekbone was swollen, red, with a large gash down the center. Her bottom lip was also cut and swollen. She remembered Cian kicking her in Winnie’s chamber, but she did not recall such a brutal beating. Had she been unconscious for that? She hoped so. Cian grabbed a handful of hair and yanked her head up so she had no choice but to look at him. “You call me a filthy liar when you’re the one who has been lying all along. I’m done playing with you. You refuse to give me the truth so you will give me your life instead.” He released her and stepped back. “Take her to the gallows. She hangs today.” For Cian, it wasn’t enough she was beaten. Two of the guards hauled her to her feet and started for the open door. She reached for the silvery thread of magic that resided deep inside her, but she couldn’t find it. It was as though it had been snuffed out. Panic set in. She had to find a way out of this mess but what could she do?…
