Day 3 with our first author of the day! There may even be a giveaway today. Let’s see!
Author: Christa Paige
Book: Compelled by Fate, Book 2 of The Kan Asma Vampiress
Genre: Paranormal Romance (Vampires)
Vastian is the deadliest warrior prince in the history of the Kan Asma Vampire Council. He’d willingly give his life to follow his revered leader’s orders to protect their people, no questions asked. Brutal wars have honed his skills as a ruthless killer while the beast that hides behind a human façade craves vengeance for the infiltration of his homeland. It is all a distraction from what he truly wants.
When the unthinkable happens, and tragedy follows, Vastian must reveal a secret that alters his life forever.
His blood-bound oath to the Council and their the long-held traditions forbid him to uphold the solemn vow he made to save the one female his heart desires but can never have. He can’t risk falling in love with Thalia, but he will keep her safe and alive…no matter what.
Because she will die without him.
Vastian is about to wage the biggest battle of his life. If he fails to win this war, it will mean losing her, forever.

“You could never handle being mine.” His whispered growl raised gooseflesh on her skin. Her heart raced as she envisioned what being mated to Vastian might be like—passionate, intense, oh so hot.
“It would’ve been a mistake,” she answered too quickly.
He bent close, his breath feathering across her cheek. “Believe what you want, but I know it would’ve been right. It would’ve been amazing.”
Exasperation increased her anxiety.
Angrily, she slapped at his smug face. He caught her hand mid-swing and hauled her into his chest. She glared at him because she couldn’t deny what he said.
The intensity shining in those beautiful eyes staggered her. Sharp fang tips flashed as he licked his lips and drew in a long breath scenting her. Time stilled as she fought the opposing desires clashing within her.
“But you wanted me. I felt it. I saw it. There was hunger in your eyes.” He stared at her face, his gaze settling on her lips. “Why, Nathalia?”
Again with her full name. It shouldn’t sound so sensual. She shouldn’t like hearing it.
“Because,” she managed to answer. Because.
Vastian did nothing to conceal his aggression. She stepped backward seeking Kai’s comforting presence.
“Yes, Nathalia. Stay away from me.”
Oh hell, the way he said her full name sounded as if he’d admonished her.
Indignant, she marched to him and lifted her chin in defiance. “I said don’t tell me what to do.”
“It’s a waste of breath since you’ll just do what you want.” He tilted his head, long hair draping over his shoulder.
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
“You know,” his voice lowered, with a hint of something else—disappointment?
Oh yes, she did. He knew she’d found him intriguing. Sexy.
Vastian had flirted with her. He’d teased. There’d always been desire in the possessive way he’d watched her.
The sweetest hint of female arousal clung to the air, teasing his senses. Inside, he rioted. His features shifted, stinging as the bones aligned into his predatory state. He fought against his inborn nature while the line between humanity and the animalistic creature in his soul vanished.
He wanted her. Craved her.
When his eyes turned, his field of vision expanding, he saw her heat signals, watched the minute changes of her pulse. She swallowed reflexively, as if nervous. Her shell-pink lips parted, and little breaths tore from her chest. If he didn’t take her in his arms and touch her, warm her, taste her, he was going to lose his freaking mind.
He lifted his arms, hands up and forced himself to speak, “Let me help you then.”
She had ten seconds to march out of there and put distance between them. It was all he could manage. If she stood there any longer, he’d shove his humanity into a dark corner of his soul, muzzle the bastard and take what he wanted.
She looked past his shoulder and shook her head.
When her vibrant green eyes, so full of life and joy, had fixed on him, pleading for his allegiance, his gut had clenched, his fingertips had tingled, and forbidden emotions flickered to life in his soul. Regret. Envy. Desire. He’d banked those sentiments. No way in hell he could act on any of them. So, he did the only thing he could for her and vowed to stay quiet.
