Dark Kings #3
September 25, 2012
For centuries, the immortals knows as the Dragon Kings have hidden their shapeshifting powers from the world. But when a mortal enemy threatens to expose them, the warrior Banan must leave his secret lair in the Highlands, risk his life for the dragons within – and resist the temptations of human love…
Jane Holden has never considered herself beautiful. But when the impossibly handsome Banan casts his gaze upon her, smoldering with sensuality, she feels like the sexiest woman on earth. Banan, however, is a man on a mission. He refuses to succumb to this modern woman’s charms – or his own desires. Two of his warrior brethren have already surrendered to forbidden love. But as the danger closes in, Banan realizes that he needs to possess Jane – mind, body, and soul. For she is more than his match.
She is his destiny…
Jane walked down the hall to Elena’s office and found her standing in the middle of the room, staring blankly at her desk.
“Are you all right?” Jane asked softly so as not to startle her.
Elena whirled around in surprise. A sad smile pulled at her lips when she saw it was Jane. “I’m fine. I was just remembering the last time I was here Sloan was telling me we were going caving.”
“I know this must be difficult. I wish you had more time to adjust –”
Elena laughed and set down her purse. “Let me guess. Richard wants to see me?”
“I think it has to do with the necklace the earl wants made for his daughter’s eighteenth birthday.”
Elena ran her fingers through her wealth of blond hair before gathering the locks into one hand and securing it into a ponytail. “Well, we mustn’t keep Richard waiting.”
Jane followed Elena as they made their way to Richard’s office. Jane resumed her position behind her desk and began to sort through the pile of papers and manila folders.
She lost track of time, but when she finished sorting the papers she looked up to find Elena standing beside her desk.
“Do you need me to get you anything?” Jane asked.
Elena frowned. “What? Oh, no. I’m just thinking. Jane, did anyone work in my office while I was gone?”
“I know Mr. Arnold went in there a couple of times looking for things while he handled some of your clients. Is something missing?”
“No,” Elena said, a small frown marring her forehead. “No, I don’t believe there is. How long have you worked here?”
“Since last summer. It’s been right at a year.” Jane was beginning to suspect there was more to Elena’s questions than met the eye. She glanced at Richard’s closed door and lowered her voice before she asked, “Should I be looking for another job? I know Mr. Arnold isn’t exactly thrilled with my work.”
Elena smiled and leaned down next to Jane. “He’s British,” she replied in a whisper. “He thinks he’s perfect.”
Jane couldn’t help but return her smile. Elena always put everyone at ease, which was why she’d climbed the latter of success at PureGems so quickly. Her clients loved her. Coworkers loved her.
Everyone loved her.
Banan has never had a problem using humans to help further hide the Dragon Kings. Not once has he ever thought twice about lying regarding who he was to get what he wants. After all, he’d been one of the Kings who had fought to save mankind.
But all that changes the moment he sees Jane Holden. It’s his duty to get close to her and discover any secrets she might have regarding the Kings, but when her life is threatened, Banan doesn’t hesitate to save her. Or show her who he really is.
