Book Tour with Tara Fox Hall

Hello all, on JoAnne's Blog this week I have the lovely and talented Tara Fox Hall. She is here to showcase her new release, from her Tempest of Vengeance series, #11 Promise Me. Please make her feel welcome, leave comments and now here's Tara.

A chain of tragic events cumulating in the shattering of the magical "dream bond" between Theo and Sar turns the lovers against one another, as Ulysses attacks from all fronts, hoping to destroy Devlin for good. The return of Lash reignites the fire between he and Sar, even as he saves her daughter Elle from certain death. Finally joined under Oath, Lash, Devlin, and Sar face the storm of Ulysses's wrath, knowing it will take their combined strength and courage to save all they love from his tempest of vengeance.
              Lash came down later, and paused in the doorway, studying me. After so much time apart from him, it was odd to feel him watching me again.

            “What is it?” I asked, looking up at him from my sewing. “Were the fish okay? I wasn’t sure what kind you liked best, so I got trout

            “They were good, Sar,” Lash said in a raspy voice. “Thanks for getting them for me. I had to change badly. It was a relief to be snake again.”

            “How often do you need to change?” It was hard for me to believe I’d known him so long, and never asked him that. But how much did I know about him really? For all we’d talked, he’d rarely talked about himself. I knew a lot about his tastes in movies and books, but not too much else. Killer, assassin, weresnake, part Spanish, had once eaten people, was born back around 1900-something in Florida, had once — well, now twice — been in jail, worked construction in his youth, loved sex/good in bed, and liked to hide his emotions. That about summed it up. Oh, and seemed to still want to get in my pants, maybe.

            “I like to do it every week or so,” Lash said, looking at me with interest. “I can’t do it too much more than that, because I can’t guard Dev as well as a snake as I can as human.”

            I got up and went over to him, touching his arm gently. “Would you like me to make you something to eat? Eggs? Bacon? Pasta?”

            Lash reached out for me in a deft movement, pulling me close and embracing me tightly.

            “Lash” I began hesitantly.

            “Shh,” he hissed. “Don’t talk. Let me hold you, and breathe in the scent of you, Sar.”
             I hugged him to me, going silent. He held me for about ten minutes, breathing deeply, his arms tight around me. But it wasn’t a sexual hug. It was a hug of recovering something that he’d been apart from for a long time that he cared for, something that had been lost but was now found.
