about A Grave Inheritance:

Selah
Kilbrid may descend from the goddess Brigid, but her heart beats—and breaks—the
same as any human. Yet enduring the scorn of London’s most noble lords and
ladies is a small price to pay for a chance at true happiness. Selah would
endure much more for love, and her betrothed, Lord Henry Fitzalan, is prepared
to challenge anyone foolish enough to stand in their way—even another goddess
born.



But
when a captivating young gentleman draws Selah into a world shadowed by
secrets, she is forced to confront her darkest fears. What if some differences
are too great to overcome and a future with Henry is doomed from the start?



With
these doubts threatening her impending marriage, a violent attack on an
innocent child pushes Selah to the very edge of her power. She must find a way
to cross into the Otherworld and regain her strength—or forfeit the streets of
London to death and disease.

Excerpt from A Grave
Inheritance:
Shifting my weight, I subtly gathered a large handful of silk
skirts. Then in one deft movement, I turned to face Henry, planting one knee on
either side of the cushion and straddling his lap.
His initial astonishment eased to a grin, and I leaned closer
until our lips almost touched. “I suggest a duel.”
Henry didn’t even blink. “Gladly. I shall have my second visit
Lord Stroud in the morning.”
I tightened my knees around his thighs. “You misunderstand, Lord
Fitzalan. I have just challenged you to a duel. Do you accept?”
He studied me for a moment. “I’ve never faced a woman before.”
Firelight played against his skin, illuminated the mix of curiosity and
amusement in his eyes. “Which weapons do you propose?”
“Hmmm. What shall it be? Swords or pistols at twenty paces?” My
body thrummed with excitement, and I had to exert every bit of self-control not
to press myself against him.
“I’ve always preferred swords à l’outrance,” he said, his voice
noticeably deeper.
“To first blood?”
“To the uttermost.” His warm breath brushed my lips. “Does that
suit you, my lady?”
Henry moved his head forward to claim my mouth, but I pulled back
just out of reach. “Oh, no,” I laughed. “I’ll be using an even more deadly
weapon.” I tightened my knees once more as Brigid’s fire flared to life inside
me.
“And what would that be? I’ve heard the only suitable weapon for
women is either poison, or their…” His voice trailed off and he swallowed hard.
I leaned closer to whisper in his ear. “Shall I show you?”
His hands gripped my back as a low growl sounded from deep inside
his throat. “Yes, please…”
