Rights Back!

I got the rights back from Harlequin for most of the books in my Unbound series based on Norse mythology! (Nocturnes/Paranormal Romances) To celebrate, I’m posting the prologue from Guardian’s Keep. :) Guardian’s Keep by Lori Devoti (coming soon in ebook) The wind howled and leaves slapped against branches. The smell of damp earth and animals panicked by what was roaming the forest tonight was everywhere. Fenrir, the cause of their fear, strode on. What was his had been taken, and he would stop at nothing to save it. “Garm,” a voice boomed. Fenrir ground to a halt, the length of chain he held knocking against his knee at his sudden stop. He gripped the links more firmly in his fist, readied himself to use the makeshift weapon when his hidden opponent decided to show himself. “Let him go,” he called out, the chain heavy and hot in his hand, his heartbeat slowing as he let his senses travel over the surrounding woods, searching for those who had stolen what was his. “Will you come?” the voice asked again. “Let me see him.” A demand this time. Fenrir didn’t believe in playing meek, didn’t know how. “If we do, and he’s safe, you’ll come with us?” Fenrir hesitated, his mind going back to Aesa, her face pale, drawn, worried. If he went with them, would he see her again? But.. .his fist tightened around the chain.. .if he didn’t, if they went through with their threats? That would kill her…kill him, too. Lifting his chin, he replied, “I’ll come.” A second chain was looped around his neck, pulled tight—not cruelly, just enough to remind him that it was there, that he was no longer free. His captor stepped in front of him—Tyr, one of the lesser gods, sent to do the bidding of those more powerful but also more...

Chapter One Rachel Daniels grabbed at the darkness. Shards of stone cut into her fingers then fell into the void beneath her. Seconds passed before the bits landed with a light clatter, telling her she had climbed too far to consider returning the way she had come. She tightened her fingers around the rock under her hand. Her chest was flat against the stone-faced cliff; blood oozed from her wounds. One false move and she would fall like that shard, roll and break until she lay lifeless on the ground below. Her eyelids screwed shut and tears leaked from her eyes. Now was not the time to panic, not the time to think about what she had left behind. In the distance, or maybe only in her mind, she heard the noises again–metal screeching. Metal like a car being torn apart. Another screech followed. This one from some animal or creature. A shiver shot through her, but guilt did too. She should go back. Her friends were still there, and Nancy at least was alive…or had been. Rachel sucked in a breath and tried to regain control of her rampaging mind. When she’d started up the cliff, it had seemed her only option, but now she realized what folly the choice had been. Up or down? Her foot slid back the way she had come. Her body slid too. One foot, two. She had lost control. Panicked, she clawed at the stone. Her foot hit a root or plant that had somehow managed to grow out of the...
