"Easy, we're not going to hurt you," he said, leaning down so his mouth was against my ear.

Involuntarily, I whimpered, feeling defeated in his unbreakable grasp. "Please. Just let me go."

"Shhh, everything is going to be fine," he said. His voice was soothing, calming, like a spring breeze.
I took a deep breath, catching the scent of rosemary and honey. My body relaxed momentarily and he eased his grip on me. I tried to press against him, a last attempt at freedom, but even with the lessened grip, I didn't budge. Feeling defeated, my shoulders dropped.

"We are trying to help you," another male voice said.

"Is that what you call it?" I asked. "Do you hold everyone you try to help against their will?"

"I like the fire in her," the man who was holding me said.

I looked up at him and focused on his face for the first time. He had a strong chiseled jaw and smiled at me with full lips. His bright green eyes seemed to sparkle in the sunlight and stray dark brown hair fell in a messy pile onto his forehead. I opened my mouth to speak, but my gaze remained fixated on my captor. It wasn't possible for someone to be that attractive. I squirmed against his chest and realized I could feel the muscles below his tunic. Whoever this man was, he was strong.

"I will put you down now, but you need to promise not to run," he said.

That's when I realized, my feet weren't touching the ground. My captor lowered me and took his hands away from me.

I looked up, surprised to find that the handsome man was a whole head, maybe even two taller than me. I'd always been tall for a woman, but this man made me feel petite, not an easy feat. I looked to my right to be greeted by another equally attractive man.

The man on my right had bronze, sun kissed skin and warm brown eyes. His long dark hair was plaited into a braid behind his head giving me a clear view of his pointed ears.

I gasped. "You're not human." I felt foolish saying those words out loud because it was painfully clear now that I looked at them again. No human male was this tall, or this strong, or this beautiful. "Your ears. You're Fae."

"That we are," the male who had been holding me said.

I blinked a few times, looking at each of them in turn. My breathing slowed as I stood there letting it sink in.

"That's better, see now we can talk about things like civilized people," the first male said. "I'm Dane, and this is Cormac."

"I don't understand what’s happening," I said.

"We're not exactly sure ourselves, love," Dane said.

About Dyan:

My story is probably similar to a lot of other writers out there. As a kid, I was creative, imaginative, and loved to write. I’d write scripts for plays and make my sisters act them out. I got excited about the writing prompts for standardized tests in elementary school. I started writing my first (unfinished) novel in 5th grade. Then started another one in middle school. For a long time, I was a closet writer. I didn’t tell anybody that I had a hard drive full of abandoned stories. After years of not finishing anything, I finally took the plunge and started taking writing, and myself as a writer, seriously. My first novel, Heir of Illaria, published January 23, 2017. Book 2 is right around the corner. It’s gone from closet hobby to full on addiction. Thankfully, I have a wonderfully supportive husband who doesn’t look at me like I’m crazy when I talk about my characters as if they’re real.
