Onyx Teaser

Since so many people have asked, demanded, pleaded, and begged for an Onyx teaser, here you go. 

           He looked me straight on. “You are a terrible liar. You do want this. Just as badly as I do.”
            My mouth opened, but no words came out.
            “You want this as badly as you want to go to ALA this winter.”
            Now my jaw was on the floor. “You don’t even know what ALA is!”
            “American Library Association midwinter event,” he said, grinning proudly. “Saw you obsessing over it on your blog before you got sick. I’m pretty sure you said you’d give up your firstborn child to go.”
            Yeah, I kind of did say that.
            Daemon eyes flashed. “Anyway, back to the whole you wanting me part.”
            I shook my head, dumbfounded.
            “You do want me.”
            Taking a deep breath, I struggled with my temper… and my amusement. “You are way too confident.”
            “I’m confident enough to wager a bet.”
            “You can’t be serious.”
            He grinned. “I bet that by New Year’s Day, you will have admitted that you’re madly, deeply, and irrevocably—”
            “Wow.  Want to throw another adverb out there?” My cheeks were burning.
            “How about irresistibly?”
            I rolled my eyes and muttered, “I’m surprised you know what an adverb is.”
            “Stop distracting me, Kitten. Back to my bet—by New Year’s Day, you’ll have admitted that you’re madly, deeply, irrevocably, and irresistibly in love with me.”
            Stunned, I choked on my laugh.
            “And that you dream about me.” He released my arm and folded his, cocking an eyebrow. “I bet you’ll even admit that. Probably even show me your notebook with my name circled in hearts—”
            “Oh, for the love of God…”
            Daemon winked. “It’s on.”


Coming August 14, 2012

  14. So, new super obsessed fan over here. I Kindled up Obsidian a couple weeks ago and was super excited that Shadows was coming out so soon after I read it. So I might have stayed up all night last night reading Shadows and then reread Obsidian AGAIN this morning. And now... here I am stalking your blog(and I've read probably 4 blogs in my lifetime) and I still can't get enough. Initially, all I really wanted was to find your Chapter 1 of Daemon's POV SOMEWHERE online because I could just eat him right up (I like my steak rare) but all the sneak peeks and POVs from your Lux series have filled me up until tomorrow where I very well might just camp out at the bookstore to read it. Needless to say, HUGE FAN OF YOUR WORK. I know it's out of your control, but I teared up a bit when I noticed the change of release date for Onyx. And yes, before you ask, Half-Blood will be purchased in the next 10 minutes, I need my JLA fix. <3 Wendy
