It is my pleasure to host Carolyn Brown today on her book tour for He Came For Mine, Book Two in ‘The Protector Series’.
BLURB: He Came For Mine, Book Two in ‘The Protector Series’
Fending for herself for almost two years,
Jazz worries she will never see Sebastian again.
A new man enters her life, but he holds a secret.
Will Jazz trust him?
Sebastian discovers an ancient ritual which must be performed
on the Chosen One’s son before his first birthday, or he will die.
He returns to Earth to find Jazz in the arms of another man.
A man he knows very well.
A man he does not trust….
My emotions were heightened as I waited for Seb to begin. On the table in front of him lay a small silver dagger, I had seen it before, it was the one he had used to pierce open his chest for me to drink his blood during our love making, the very first time.
The room was in silence as the ritual began. Seb chanted a verse in a language I had never heard, whilst the others gathered around the table, joined in at various intervals. My imagination took me to the many eerie dark magic and horror movies I had watched and I began to feel somewhat uneasy!
Bliss sitting on my right, must have sensed this and placed her hand in mine lending me her support, to get me through whatever was about to occur.
Time seemed to stand still and stretch on forever, as the words being spoken by Seb continued until he suddenly paused and reached for the small dagger in front of him. With a flare of dramatics he sliced his skin across his wrist and filled an empty crystal goblet with the droplets of blood escaping from his wound.
Once the wound had stopped bleeding and had begun to close and heal, he picked up the goblet and moved towards the symbol drawn on the far wall.
Using his blood he marked it with his fingers writing letters and words in his language at certain points across the large symbol marked on the wall.
Everyone in the room was now completely quiet, their eyes closed, I watched in fascination as the blood which had marked the symbol seemed to shimmer and move from the wall and make its way toward Auron, who was sitting quietly on my lap.
I felt the pressure of Bliss’s hand in mine, giving me a silent message of courage as I sat transfixed upon Seb’s written words moving and entwining themselves together as they danced before my eyes.
Seb walked across the room and gently took Auron from my arms, quickly removed his clothing and held him up in front of the moving words.
Unless I had witnessed this for myself I would not have believed it. The words seemed to pass through Auron’s small body twisting and twinning a path around his frame until somehow they melted into his skin, leaving small markings tattoo like across his body in the shape of the letters Seb had written over the symbol on the wall.
Seb still holding the dagger in his hand cut a small incision across Auron’s wrist and held his arm over the goblet collecting a small amount of his blood. He then placed Auron back into my arms and walked over to the symbol on the wall marking it in blood for the second time.
New symbols formed as Seb once again recited the chant and the others began to join in. For the second time the words Seb had written twisted and turned and pulled themselves from the wall and floated this time towards Seb. In a few short moments the markings had buried themselves across his chest where his heart lay.
When all the blood had found its way into the bodies of the two I loved, everyone in the room opened their eyes in unison and began cheering loudly!
Not really knowing what was expected of me, I stood up and moved closer to Seb who took Auron from me and placed him on the floor, he gathered me into his arms while our friends and the gathered Protectors congratulated Auron with pats on the head and soft kisses.
Seb whispered into my ear, “He is joined with me and we can be a part of one another! He will be safe now!”
About Carolyn Brown
I live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia and love the beach lifestyle. I try to share some of the wonders of this area with my readers, in the content of my books.
I am happily married and have two children, one in university the other in his second last year of High School.
Many years spent supporting high school students with Learning Difficulties has inspired me to take on the challenge of writing, which I am finding I am enjoying immensely. I spend my free time reading and writing and try to relax on the beautiful beaches I live near, walking my dog and swimming, at every possible opportunity.
I love and am drawn to the dark and mysterious things that go bump in the night and love writing in the paranormal romance genre for New Adults as I enjoy enticing my audience with small hints of sexual fantasy.
