About FORGED IN STONE:
The son of darkness is all grown up…
James is a Guardian. He is tasked with protecting the most important person in his world. For eight years
he has done his job without complaint, but he has grown tired of living under the shadow of a father
who is responsible for the most unimaginable violence and destruction his world has ever known.
Ainsley is at a loss for what to do with her life. She hates her two dead end jobs and the family who
betrayed her. She has resigned herself to living one day at a time, but she longs for an escape from her
When Ainsley finds James in her bed, their two lives and worlds collide. They may have both found

“I still don’t know enough about you.”
“You know I am the son of evil. I live in a fortressed city far from here, and I enjoy a good Pinot and fast
cars as much as you do. Is there anything else you need to know?”
She seemed pensive for a moment. “Do you have a girlfriend?”
“A girlfriend? No.”
“Then a wife, or anything else?”
“None of the above.” I shook my head. “And if it puts you at ease, it has been longer than I care to admit
since I have been with a woman.”
“It doesn’t put me at ease. It means you’re desperate.”
“Desperate? If I were desperate I would have slept with the girl hanging all over me at that dive bar the
“You hang out at dive bars?”
“It’s the atmosphere that attracts me. I like to blend in. I go there because no one knows me, and no
“That sounds kind of sad.” She played with the hem of her pajama shirt.
“It’s no sadder than you turning into a recluse because of what happened to you. They are the ones that
should hide. Not you.” I took her chin in my hand. “You should never hide.”
Our eyes locked, and I didn’t think. I leaned in and brushed my lips against hers. She didn’t respond at
first, but then she started to move her lips against mine. I sped up the kiss, and she put a hand on my
shoulder, pulling me in. I pushed my way into her mouth, wrapping my arms around her waist as I
eagerly explored her mouth. I was out of control, I could not think straight. All I was aware of was her
sweet taste, and the way her fingers tangled in my hair. I wanted to devour her, experience everything
she had to offer, explore the places that no one had explored before. But I couldn’t. Not yet. I forced
myself to break the kiss. I stepped back.
She watched me, breathless, and with wide eyes. “You kissed me.”
“You kissed me back.” I smiled. I was as affected as her, but she was not doing a very good job at hiding
“I did. I kissed you back, and since we are all about being honest, I want to kiss you again.”
I laughed. “That eager?”
“You ended it too soon.”
