Sensual Sunday is brought to you today by Her Warrior Angel, which is the third book in my popular Her Angel romance series. Sensual Sunday’s always feature a hot excerpt from one of my paranormal romance books. Read on for this Sunday’s sensual snippet…
Einar held the door to the hotel suite open for Taylor. She passed him and flicked on the lights. The living area between the two bedrooms held her attention in a way that wasnâ€™t natural. There wasnâ€™t much to look at. Two gilt-framed cream couches, a wooden coffee table and a flat screen TV on a side cupboard between the two tall windows opposite the door. Was she avoiding looking at him?
Angels had acute senses. He could feel her fear and desire. They mirrored his own feelings so perfectly that he hadnâ€™t noticed them as hers at first. It didnâ€™t help that she insisted on flirting with him one moment and trying to push him away the next. Was she as confused about this as he was? Both of them knew it wasnâ€™t right, even if it did feel as though it was.
Taylor walked to the door of the second bedroom. Einar watched her backside sway and appreciatively raked his gaze over her. She was more than tempting. He wanted her without a doubt, but no good would come of it. She knew what he was, and why they couldnâ€™t do this.
She stopped at the door and looked back at him. Her black hair swept over her shoulder in a graceful wave, blending into her leather jacket, and her blue eyes held his, mesmerising him.
He went to her without thinking, his feet moving of their own volition, carrying him towards the one thing he shouldnâ€™t want but the one thing he couldnâ€™t resist.
She was beautiful.
And he was starting not to care about her blood or what she was, because all of that made her into the woman standing before him. This beautiful woman with so much passion and fear in her eyes, so much conflict that he wanted to touch her cheek and kiss her, and show her that it didnâ€™t matter where they had come from in life. It only mattered that they were falling for each other.
Einar almost laughed at himself.
What foolish thoughts were those?
She flirted with him but that didnâ€™t mean she actually wanted him. For all he knew, this was some devious demonic game to her, a challenge to make an angel fall.
He stopped close beside her, staring deep into her eyes and trying to decipher her true feelings. A sparkle of tears wet her lashes and for a flicker of a moment, pure fear replaced any trace of desire in her eyes.
This wasnâ€™t a game.
This was real, for both of them. They were both scared. She was just fighting it better than he was.
He had given up the moment he had touched her, and she had touched him, last night.
Taylor stepped up to him, pressed her hand against the breastplate of his armour, and tiptoed. He couldnâ€™t move as she brought her mouth towards his, her eyes closing, and kissed him. It was soft, tentative, and mind-blowing. Any hint of reserve he had shattered in that instant. He started to kiss her but she pulled away and took a step backwards towards the open door of her room. She trailed her fingers down his breastplate and smiled.
â€œThanks for the date, Romeo.â€ With that, she turned away into her room and closed the door on him.
Einar stood staring at the white panels, breathing hard and struggling to regain control. Was she trying to break him? Was she just toying with him or was she serious? He fought the urge to kick her door down and ask her, and kiss her, and make love with her. Every inch of him tightened at the thought of burying himself in her sweet body and slaking his thirst for her.
He pressed his hand against the door and drew deep breaths, wrestling for some sort of command over his feelings.
She moved around on the other side, coming closer one moment and drifting farther away the next. Einar listened, trying to convince himself to turn around and go to his room. It was impossible.
He didnâ€™t care if it was real or not.
He didnâ€™t care about the consequences.
Einar kicked the door and it burst open, slamming against the wall on the other side. Taylor gasped and his gaze sought her out.
She stood at the foot of the white double bed, clutching her black top to her bare chest, her blue eyes wide.
He breathed hard, glanced over her, and then crossed the room in two strides and pulled her into his arms. She dropped her top and pressed her hands against his breastplate when he dipped his head and captured her lips. He crushed them with a passionate kiss, his tongue delving beyond the barrier of her teeth and into her mouth to tangle with hers. She moaned, leaned into him, and slid her hands up, settling her arms around his neck. He shivered when tingles cascaded down his spine and she buried her fingers into his hair.
It didnâ€™t matter that it was forbidden.
It only mattered that they wanted this, needed this, and had feelings for each other.
To Hell with it.

Her Warrior Angel
One of Heavenâ€™s top hunters, Einar is on a mission to uncover why an angel was working with demons. When he finds the first demon fighting a beautiful woman, he intervenes and saves her life, even when he knows Heaven will hold it against him. The alluring, lethally seductive female is half demon.
There is no love in this world more forbidden than that between an angel and a demon.
Taylor vowed long ago to protect her city from the lowest demons and she isnâ€™t about to let an angel waltz in and take over, and sheâ€™s certainly not about to fall in love with him, even if he is gorgeous. Determined to do her job as a hunter, she convinces the dangerously sensual warrior to team up with her, but as the mission leads them deep into the cityâ€™s demon underworld, desire flares white-hot between them and not even fear of the consequences can stop the flames of their passion from consuming them both.
Can a love so forbidden ever have a happy ending or are they destined to break each otherâ€™s hearts?
