~Blog Tour~ Tempest of Vegengeance by Tara Fox Hall (Excerpt, Book Trailer, and GIVEAWAY!)

Posted by BookGroupies


A chain of tragic events cumulating in the shattering of the magical "dream bond" between Theo and Sar turns the lovers against one another, as Ulysses attacks from all fronts, hoping to destroy Devlin for good. The return of Lash reignites the fire between he and Sar, even as he saves her daughter Elle from certain death. Finally joined under Oath, Lash, Devlin, and Sar face the storm of Ulysses's wrath, knowing it will take their combined strength and courage to save all they love from his tempest of vengeance.

“I need to know something.”
            “Then ask,” Lash replied. “You know I’ll tell you the truth. Always.”
            “You said you cared for me. What does that mean, exactly?”
            The silence stretched for a long minute.
            “I care for you very much Sar,” Lash said, hugging me.
            “Do you love me, Lash?”
            Lash was quiet for a long time. But he didn’t let me go.
            “Answer me.”
            “I care for you, Sar. More than I’ve ever cared for any woman in my whole life. I want you more than I’ve ever wanted any woman, too, were or human. You make me happy, being with you, making me food, talking and laughing together. It’s so good, waking up with you in my arms—”
            “I asked you a question,” I said harshly. “Answer me. Yes or no?”
            Lash looked at me and sighed. “No,” he hissed very softly. “No.”
            I felt so crushed I couldn’t speak. I couldn’t say anything, keeping my tears in by force of will alone.
            Lash held me close. “I smell your hurt, and I’m sorry. But you wanted the truth.”
            “I’m sorry, too,” I said heavily. Then I took his arms from around me, and got up from the bed. Lash got up as well, and stopped me from leaving, putting his hand on my arm. I tried to pull away, but he pulled me into his arms, and held me close.
            “Why isn’t it enough that I care for you?” Lash hissed, upset. “I know you take pleasure in me, Sar. I meant what I said, that I’ll do anything you need me to. I’ll be faithful to you. I give you my word I haven’t been with anyone else, and I won’t be, if you—”
            “It’s not that, Lash. I never doubted your faithfulness. It’s that you aren’t in love with me. You don’t feel for me like I feel for you.”

            There was dead silence that stretched. Then slowly Lash pulled back from me and held me at arms length. He looked down at me, his eyes wide with disbelief. “You love me?” Lash rasped out. “Me?”
