But last Tuesday wasn't a total loss. If you don't already know my book Guided was on tour last week. And if you don't know check out the link here to see all the stops and enter the Giveaways.
As you may know I have been hard at work on Deceived book 2 in The Jade Ring Series and as I said on another post I am also writing a prequel to Guided, about the years that Jasper is assigned to watch over Jo. It is all from his POV and will give you a great look at why Jasper is the way he is. I am having a lot of fun writing this one, so naturally your Tease today is going to come from Jaded.
*Please remember that this has not been edited and may change.
And now I give you an excerpt from Jaded....
The barista turned to walk away, but not before reaching across the table right next to us, being sure to show Titius exactly what he would be getting later. Titius bit his lip as she wiped down the table.
“Um, hm, hm. Why don’t I come down here more often?”
“If you like I can leave so you can bang her right here on the table. I mean why wait.” I goaded him. Of all The Council members he was the one that got under my skin the most.
Titius turned his hard stare on me. “You don’t like me do you Jasper?” The way he said my name made it sound like it was acid on his tongue. I can see the feeling is mutual.
I sit back and cross my arms over my chest. “What do you want Titius? You called this little meeting, remember?”
“I have a new assignment for you,” he states sliding the envelope across the table.
I pick up the envelope more curious than anything. This is not how assignments were doled out. Usually you are summoned before The Council and the job is dealt. To say this is a little unorthodox would be the understatement of the century.
“We may have a bit of a situation. A new witch has come on the radar.” I skim through the contents of the envelope. It’s a picture of a girl and a slip of paper with an address on it.
“So? Get one of your loyal minions to Guide her. I have enough shit on my plate at the moment,” I scoff sliding the envelope back across the table.
“I don’t want just anyone to Guide her Jasper. I need someone who knows what they are doing on her. Besides, she’s special.” Titius paused. He knew I would bite.
“Why is this one so special?” I ask even though I know I am going to regret it.
“Because she is a Hannigan.” And like that, I’m in. I lean forward in my chair, placing my forearms on the top of the table. “Interested now?”
