I’ll start my post with a micro-excerpt from the first book in the Otherkin trilogy, Sins of the Heart:
“You’re gorgeous when you’re stabbing things, Roxy Tam.”
Yes, when I said “micro” I meant exactly that. But that tiny snippet of dialogue exemplifies so much about Dagan Krayl, the dark, sexy hero of Sins of the Heart. And it also tells us quite a bit about the heroine, Roxy Tam.
Dagan’s every instinct screams for him to stand in front of Roxy, to protect her, to pound his chest and shout, “Mine.” But he knows that if he does, he’ll lose her, because Roxy isn’t the type to be owned or possessed. She’s been taking care of business on her own for her whole life, and she isn’t about to stop now just because a guy—a gorgeous, luscious, incredibly sexy guy—decides to turn her world upside down.
Roxy’s a kick ass kind of girl. She’s smart and savvy and she uses her brains to solve problems, except on those occasions when brawn will serve her better. In those cases, she isn’t averse to using a bit of physical coercion. She gets the job done. That’s who she is.
And despite his inclinations to be the über-alpha male, Dagan can’t help but find Roxy’s strength and independence incredibly attractive. So he reins in his natural inclinations and lets Roxy be Roxy, even when it means she’s standing shoulder to shoulder with him. Stabbing things.
The question is: What things?
