This week's paragraph is from HOLIDAY GEM, my holiday story set to be released on December 31st.
Gemma was beautiful; a redheaded Snow White with the most perfect porcelain skin he’d ever seen. She had none of the freckles either of her other sisters he’d gotten to know had. Her lips were heart-shaped, perfectly formed and a deep shade of red. Suddenly he wanted to touch them and know how they would feel against him. He’d had hundreds of women and none had ever spoken to him the way she did. Of course, he’d made certain none of the women he’d taken were from the Circle of Magdalena.
Maybe that’s what was different about Gemma. She was one of the holy ones, one of the women his parents had taught him to cherish as angels above all other beings. Certainly, it was how his own father treated his mother. The Circle of Magdalena sustained the Valendite Breed. They were a treasure. Clearly, that’s what had him so shaken.
