Day (Stronghold 4) is nearly done!

Stronghold is the last defense against humanity’s ancient enemy…

I’m busy putting the finishing touches on DAY, the final book of the Stronghold series. Here is the blurb–>

Bruno Day knows the moment he sets eyes on Amy that he won’t be able to stay away from her, but he doesn’t want to drag her into his dangerous life—his duty is to save humanity. She may help them survive if he makes her his mate, but what if the price is her death?

Amy Roderick never expects Bruno Day to show up at her house and ask for her help. She’s just an ordinary person, and he’s the larger-than-life leader of the Sentries. What could she possibly do to help? And why are her instincts telling her they’re meant for each other?

Power and determination have kept them safe for years, but now Bruno and his brothers must face the ultimate battle: an alien swarm that could devour the entire planet. Everything depends on the decision of one young woman: will Amy follow her heart or sacrifice her life for duty?

The Sentries are territorial, guarded, and relentless in their duty to defend humanity from a secret, deadly menace. In order to remain vigilant, these semi-immortal men must remain aloof and solitary. No one, not even their true mate, will distract them from their mission to protect Earth from annihilation…

Greyson Dark, Sentry, specialization: fabrication and engineering. Brown hair, brown eyes, grouchy and gruff. Territory: Ohio and westward.

Solomon Dusk, Sentry, specialization: scientist/computer science. Brown hair, light brown eyes, secretive. Territory: Mt. Washington, New Hampshire and points north.

Isaac Dawn, Sentry, specialization: pilot/power focus. Dark brown hair, green eyes, seemingly careless exterior hiding a focused intensity. Territory: San Francisco Peaks.

Bruno Day, Sentry, specialization: politician/leader. Very suave and polished in public, temperamental and often angry in private. Territory: Manhattan, New York and south.

Saige Ellis can spot a liar from a hundred yards away, and she knows her history professor is bad news. She hates the way he hides behind his stupid sunglasses and beard. She hates the way his ridiculously perfect body makes her feel. When he asks her to stay after class, she asks him what he’s trying to prove.

Isaac Dawn hates having to hide his identity, but it’s the only way he can get close to Saige without tipping everyone off about his identity as a Sentry. He knows she’s his perfect match, but she’s skittish and angry, and for good reason—her abusive father has been stalking her for years. When he asks her to give him a chance, Saige demands the truth, and he blows it.

However, when murderous aliens are real, and a mysterious shadow follows Saige home, is her demand for honesty worth her life? Can she accept Isaac’s help without losing herself?

DUSK by Erin M. Leaf

 

First Kiss:

“I should have called you sooner,” he said, surprising her. He put a hand on her arm, tilting her away from the office window. “Earlier this summer.”

“Why would you?” she asked him, floundering. He didn’t owe her anything. In fact, she owed him, for saving her life.

He looked at her for a long moment. Lucy was about to step back, but then he reached up and cupped her cheek. Her heart knocked against her ribs.

“The moment I touched you to heal you, I knew,” he murmured, eyes soft.

Lucy swallowed, trying to breathe past her panic. “Knew what?” she whispered. Heat washed through her in a wave. He smelled like fresh air and sun-baked stone. She couldn’t help it—she leaned into his palm.

He frowned and dropped his hand, suddenly staring at the door. He looked abruptly unapproachable. “I must go.”

Lucy stepped back, cursing herself for letting him get so close. “You confuse me,” she said past the lump in her throat. You’re just a silly girl to him, she told herself, embarrassed. She stepped back further. He’s hundreds of years older than you.

He turned back to her, his eyes dark and worried. “I’m sorry,” he murmured, then to her shock, he cupped her face with both hands and quickly kissed her.

Lucy stood there like an idiot. Do I kiss him back? she wondered, and then before she could do anything, he moved away, head tilting once more as if he was listening to something only he could hear.

“Solomon?”

His hands fell away from her as he stared at the door. “Stay here,” he said, frowning. “Something is wrong.”

“What?” she asked, but he was already outside. She touched her mouth, dazed. “What just happened?” Her lips tingled.

Lucy Soren never expected to live through an alien attack. Months later, her nightmares won’t let her forget the pain she suffered, or her strange attraction to the man who saved her from certain death.

Sentry Solomon Dusk never wanted to heal a mortal woman, but he can’t forget Lucy’s bravery or beauty. Even though he vowed to never again fall in love, Lucy attracts him like no other woman ever has before.

When the alien Spiders again slip past the Sentries’ defenses, Solomon’s only thought is to protect the woman he refuses to love. Lucy’s only hope is to run from the danger to her heart. Unfortunately, the fate of the planet rests on their ability to work together. Will their fear of commitment keep them from saving the planet… and each other?
