How are you enjoying this hop? Today I have award winning author Laurel O'Donnell with one of my favorites Angel's Assassins. Enjoy :)
“Of all my men, you were the biggest challenge to me. The strongest, the smartest. I could never fully control you. Certainly, you did as I asked. But when I looked in your eyes… I saw defiance. Fear is a powerful motivator for most. But you feared nothing. I had you whipped for insubordination. You never cried out. Not even when the flesh was being ripped from your back. Death never bothered you. You sought it as a reward. The one thing you cared for was your freedom. And as strong as your desire for it was, I was always suspicious that one day you would still walk away from me.”
Damien stood, awash in amazement. “What does sending me on this mission have to do with your insecurities?”
Roke’s eyes flashed with anger, before subsiding.
