To Kill a Fae C.S. Wilde

To Kill a Fae
C.S. Wilde
(Hollowcliff Detectives, #1)
Publication date: October 10th 2019
Genres: Adult, Romance, Urban Fantasy

Fae enjoy playing dangerous games…

In detective Mera Maurea’s experience, three things motivate a murder: secrets, convenience, or passion. But none of the three can explain why the Summer King is dead.

With a tight deadline hanging over her head, Mera has to figure out who’s the culprit before the frail balance that holds the nation of Tagrad together crumbles into dust.

To aid her—or turn her life into a living hell, hard to tell which—is her fae partner Sebastian Dhay, a snarky detective with a penchant for the illegal. He’s a volatile wild card who will do anything to solve the murder, even if it means his doom.

The clock is ticking. And Mera is hiding a deadly secret of her own.

EXCERPT:

Bast began unbuttoning his vest and nodded to a door close to the kitchen. “You can sleep in my bedroom.”

Mera barely recorded what he’d said. She couldn’t take her eyes off him.

He threw the vest on the sofa and proceeded to unbutton his shirt, a burning dare in his eyes.

Mera took in his strong, defined abs, and a delirious warmth went down her spine.

He tossed the shirt atop the sofa too, showcasing his perfect chiseled torso and strong biceps, meant to wrap around a woman as she rode his…

“Enjoying the show, are we?” He began undoing his belt, his deceiving, sharp eyes burning with lust.

Mera’s throat was so dry it might be made of sand. “I…”

Noticing the massive bulge underneath his black boxer briefs, she stepped forward. She wanted, needed, to touch that part of him; lick it, hold it, shove it inside her until…

No!

This was wrong. He was her partner, at least for the time being.

“Stop being a dick, Detective Dhay.” Grasping her bag, she hurried into the bedroom, slamming the door closed behind her.

Author Bio:

C.S. Wilde wrote her first Fantasy novel when she was eight. That book was absolutely terrible, but her mother told her it was awesome, so she kept writing.

Now a grown-up (though many will beg to differ), C. S. Wilde writes about fantastic worlds, love stories larger than life and epic battles.

She also, quite obviously, sucks at writing an author bio. She finds it awkward that she must write this in the third person, and hopes you won’t notice.

Author Bio:

Before finding domestic bliss in suburbia, S.T. Bende lived in Manhattan Beach (where she became overly fond of Peet’s Coffee) and Europe… where she became overly fond of McVitie’s cookies. Her love of Scandinavian culture and a very patient Norwegian teacher inspired her YA Norse fantasy series’ (Viking Academy, Elsker Saga, Ære Saga, and Night War Saga). And her love of a galaxy far, far away inspired her to write children’s books for Star Wars. She hopes her characters make you smile, and she dreams of skiing on Jotunheim and Hoth.

So who am I?

Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.
Now, I live in a small town in West Virginia where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.
I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

Ten songs and three bottles of water later, I follow him onto the deck, putting my arms on the railing and looking out at the water.
            “Feeling better?” He leans against the rails beside me, watching the ocean roll in and out.
            “Yeah… Have you ever been jealous of the waves, Jonah?”
            He turns to me, puzzled. “No, why would I be?”
            “When I was younger, my father used to tell me how dangerous the water was. I can still hear him laughing at my fear of the waves while trying to warn me of the real dangers below the surface. ‘The waves are simply the ocean dancing, Princess. The real danger is what you can’t see, so never go in alone. The currents will pull you under and turn you around until you have no idea which way is up.’” I smile at Jonah, wiping away a stray tear.
“He’s a smart man.” Jonah nods.
 “Yes, he was. See, those waves are the most carefree part of the water. No matter how hard the ocean tries to pull them back in, to break them of their dance… their freedom… it can’t. Those waves-” I motion to the water, whispering. “-are everything I try to be. What’s not to envy, Jonah? Their spirit? Their strength?” Wiping away another tear, I look into his eyes, my voice breaking. “The currents are winning, Jonah. They have pulled me under, and I am drowning.”
“Eliana.” He huffs out my name as if he’s been punched.
“I wanna be a wave, Jonah.”
“Then let’s be waves, beautiful.” He takes my hand.
“Things are different now.” We both look at my ring.
“A current?” he asks.
“No, he’s drowning, too. He just won’t admit it.”
“Are you in love with him?”
“It doesn’t matter.” I smile, stepping off the deck and wiggling my toes in the sand. “If I can’t be a wave, then at least we can dance with them.” I grin up at Jonah and then sprint down the sand into the water, screaming when the first wave rushes over my feet.
“It’s three a.m.! You’ll freeze.” Jonah sweeps me up, trying to carry me back to the dry sand when an unexpected surge of water knocks us over.
“Holy shit, that’s cold,” he yells out, and I laugh.
“You feel that, Jonah?”
“The cold? Yeah I feel it.” He scoops me into his arms and carries my shivering body up the shore, placing me on a lounge, and runs up to grab the blanket from the deck. Sitting behind me, he pulls my back to his chest and wraps the blanket around us both.
“That, Jonah, was a wave trying to remind me who I am.” I lean into him, shivering, slowly warming back up as my eyes begin to get heavy.
“And who is that, beautiful?”
“I am Eliana Annalise Jameson, and I am a hell of a lot stronger than the woman I have allowed myself to become.”
“Yeah, and what are you going to do about that?” I can hear the smile in his voice.
“I’m going to fight back.”
