Wolf Sirens: Forbidden
by Tina Smith
When Lila unwillingly moves to the country town of Shade, she can’t imagine the life-altering events that lie in wait for her. Shade has a curfew and has always been surrounded by myths. A central feature of the town is its famous statue of Artemis, Goddess of the Hunt, whose spirit is said to protect the innocent.
Lila falls in with a group of intriguing teenagers with luminescent eyes and soon she is drawn into the shadowlands of fantasy and reality, where destiny collides.
A mysterious local girl, Cresida, warns her to stay away, but Lila is drawn to them like a moth to a flame.
Cresida knows their fatal secret and she is honour-bound to protect those who are endangered. But she underestimates Lila’s passion for the mysterious and charismatic clan of youths. Lila begins to feel a call she cannot ignore. Yet her heart is filled with vulnerable desires that begin to turn the underworld upside down, for both hunter and hunted, as she learns they have been waiting for her…
Inspired by the legend of the mythical femme fatale, Wolf Sirens is an intimate tale of unrequited and forbidden love in the underworld, a masterpiece of romance fantasy.
He placed his arms over me without hesitation, before it was necessary, as he listened to Sam’s instructions. It felt odd standing there, his hands on my waist, burning holes through my skin like lava. I barely heard Sam’s instructions. I felt I would burn up into ash and fall in a pile on the floor.
He asked, “Tell me if I start to hurt you, okay?”
He looked into my eyes with blazing blue green irises. I nodded, not knowing if I could speak. He had never addressed me directly before. His touch was nearly more than I could bear; my heart began to pound out of my chest. Surely he could hear the blood throbbing in my body. I began to shake, he lifted me much too slowly and with complete ease. I started to panic. I wobbled and shook trying to maintain the pose. I wavered unsteadily on his shoulder and I almost fell, though he held me tight in his grip. Bianca jumped in to help catch me as I slipped. Sky had grabbed me with one hand as I fell. Bianca steadied me with strong hands, I was against his body - now I was hot, my cheeks scorched.
