Happy Unbearable Desire Release Day! The next shifter tale is out in the world!
And not only is it release day, it's also #TeaserTuesday! So how's about one more peek inside?
Moira and Hugo have a complicated history... but there's no time like the present to work through decade-old emotion...
“I’m sorry,” he said. “Sorry that I gave you the wrong impression. Back in Canada.”
Her head snapped up then, brown eyes piercing. “Now? You want to discuss this now?”
He shrugged. “You just seem really irritated with me lately. I thought if we cleared the air—”
“The air is plenty clear. Crystal. Blue skies.” Her gaze landed back on his hand and he half expected the next swipe of antiseptic to be rough, but she was as gentle as ever.
“I’ve always felt bad that you stayed for me and I couldn’t—”
Her head snapped up again, hard enough to give her whiplash. “Excuse me? Stayed for you? Don’t be such an egotistical ass, Hugo. I love this pride. I stayed in spite of you.”
He blinked, taken aback by her vehemence. “I’m still sorry,” he said. “For leading you on before you got here. For giving you a false impression of what we had—”
“Was it false?”
“Ah…” He’d never seen her like this. Her words sharp and aggressive. Moira was gentle and nurturing. She healed people, but now her words were sharp enough to cut.
“Was it really false, Hugo? Was everything that happened in Canada really in my head or did you just get home and chicken out?”
“I don’t know what you—”
“Unrequited love is easy. There are never any flaws in unrequited love. You never have to work through an argument or make a hard call about putting another person above all others when you’re only worshipping from afar.”
“I hardly think—”
She didn’t even let him begin. “This grand passion of yours is childish.” She slapped a bandage over his cut, securing it with surgical tape, deft and gentle even as she railed at him. “Love, real love, isn’t always a fairy tale. It isn’t just adoration. It’s making the choice to put one person above all others—not just believing that they were put on earth for you to worship from afar.”
