Donna’s Review of Crux Untamed by Tillie Cole

by Tillie Cole
Genres: Dark Romance

 

 

 

 

 

ONLY BOUNDLESS LOVE CAN SILENCE THE WHISPERS OF THE PAST . . .

A broken woman.
A damaged man.
A free spirit intent on saving them both.

Elysia ‘Sia’ Willis lives a solitary life. The only person in it is her big brother, Ky, vice-president of the infamous Hades Hangmen. She loves him, but she has absolutely no love for the outlaw MC he belongs to.
Raised in secret by her mother, Sia grew up separated from her brother and distant father. No one knew she even existed.

After the tragic murder of her mother, Sia spiraled into a rebellion against the rules of the Hangmen. A rebellion with dire consequences that now, years later, she still can’t escape.

As she lives once again in secret, happy on her own at her secluded ranch, a devil from her past comes calling. A devil who wants to possess her once again and take her from the simple life she never wants to lose.
And he will stop at nothing to collect what he believes is his: her.

Valan ‘Hush’ Durand and Aubin ‘Cowboy’ Breaux have finally found a home in the mother chapter of the Hangmen. The notoriously private Cajun twosome have, for now, put aside what chased them from their beloved Louisiana. But as threats toward the club build, Hush and Cowboy are given a task—protect Elysia Willis at all costs. Cowboy welcomes the job of watching over the blond-haired, blue-eyed beauty.
Hush fights against it.

Scarred by events from his past and a secret that plagues his everyday life, Hush refuses to let anyone else get close. Only Cowboy knows the real him. Until a certain sister of the club’s VP begins to slowly knock down his defenses, shattering the heavily built walls that guard his damaged soul . . . with his best friend leading the charge.

As lost and open hearts begin to meld, taking each other from indescribable pain to the never-before felt relief of peace, the newly-mended threesome must first endure one more rocky path.
Only then will they finally shake free of the shackles of their pasts.
Only then will they shed the bonds that have for too long held their happiness captive.
And there is only one way to survive that path . . . together.

 

Dark Contemporary MFM Romance. Contains scenes of violence and explicit sexual situations. Over 18’s only.

 

Review

Where do I begin, I have no idea how to explain this book, other than its one of the most beautiful love stories I have read for some time. Is it your conventional love story, No. Not by a long shot. Is it broken and heartbreaking, Yes! But its beautiful all the same.

This is also not quite the typical Hades Hangmen story either. The violence and no-nonsense way of dealing with things are the same but the emotions that poured from this book was like none other from the past. The Klan feature heavily in this book and for me, it’s a tough subject. Maybe even more so than previously tackled. The pain felt in this book, really tore me apart. The hatred of others that are different, from the “norm” is not easy to take in and deal with. Why? Is a question that can never be truly answered.

Hush, Cowboy and Sia are the main characters in this book but all the Hangmen feature somewhere in its pages. Even some that haven’t appeared before. The Menage theme was brilliant and the way it came about was truly due to a un-selfless act of a true best friend and brother. And a special bond that is timeless.

In true Hangmen style nothing has an easy path in their world and you are taken on a rough journey through time and past lives, lived by the three main characters. Hush/Valan, Cowboy/Aubin and Sia/Elysia. This trio is meant to be and you will see that through the pages of this book. There is one saying that will stay with me for a lifetime to come. “Love doesn’t see colour, Only pure hearts”.

This books ripped my heart out in places, I sobbed so much reading it. But by the end, my heart was mended and put back together again. I really recommend this amazing book and series. Although you will find it very different but it’s just as good as the rest.

Robyn’s Review of Double Vision by L.M. Halloran

by L.M. Halloran
Genres: Contemporary Romance, Dark Romance
Title: Double Vision
Author: L.M. Halloran
Genre: Dark Romance/Contemporary
Release Date: February 22, 2018

 

LM Halloran is a new author to me and an exciting find with this amazing story. This sure is a different style of book but one that is fabulous and hard to put down.

Eden Sumner was adopted but didn’t find out for many years, it made no difference as she really loved her adopted parents. Moving to Los Angeles changes everything for her though and is where she meets Liam Rourke!
She also finds out there is a lot more in her personal history than she bargained for or ever imagined.

The story is told in different time phases, then and now and even in the now it splits up into six years beyond. Eden narrates the story and it is important that she does as she is its centre.

The characters are quite complex, especially Liam. He is one hot Irish alpha who I wanted to shake at times and hug others. What adventures Eden goes on is mind-boggling and firms up her inner strength.

With the huge amount of action and drama, you find yourself sitting on the edge of your seat, biting your nails. Yes, there is violence, criminal activity, kinky sexual proclivities but there is a romance as well. Definitely not light and sunny but deep and dark, never the less it is very powerful.

Reviewed by Robyn

Beyond the Covers Blog – “…a dark, erotic thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat.”


Author Holly Hall – “This book was unputdownable…Unexpected and edgy and sexy.”


Author Steph Poe – “If you are looking for a dark romance with thrills and suspense… this is one I highly recommend.”

Everything has a price, and the price of truth is steepest of all. 

Eden has an ironclad five-year plan. In three months, she’s saying good riddance to Los Angeles and returning to the Pacific Northwest for medical school. Nothing is going to get in her way.
Nothing… but the impossible.
When she glimpses her doppelgänger at a party, the seemingly accidental meeting turns her life in a direction she never imagined, shredding everything she knows about herself and where she comes from. 
The one constant in her collapsing world is Liam Rourke, a man whose dark desires are matched only by his tenderness. But Liam is more than a master in the bedroom—he’s a master of lies.

Uncovering the truth might cost Eden her life.
Her family.

Her love.
Some things are worth dying for.

Nat’s Review of Up In Smoke by T.M. Frazier

by T.M. Frazier
Genres: Dark Romance

BLOGTOURSBPR-TM FRAZIER

Up in Smoke, an all-new gritty standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author T.M. Frazier is LIVE!

Smoke FULL COVER

I’m a man without a conscience.

I deal in murder and mayhem.

I’m the best at what I do.

Frankie Helburn is supposed to be an easy job.

A means to flush her father out of hiding.

Simple.

Except there isn’t anything simple about Frankie or the secrets she’s keeping.

She’s stubborn as hell and the sexiest god damn thing I have ever seen, sending dark, dirty animalistic desire coursing through my veins.

She’s cocaine with legs. A f*cking addiction that makes me question things I’ve never questioned before. Want things I’ve never wanted before.

I might have her, but she isn’t mine to keep.

If her father doesn’t show his face, she will be mine.

To KILL.

** Other books in the King Series DO NOT have to be read to enjoy Smoke’s book. Up in Smoke can be read as a standalone. **

Review

WOW from start to finish this book was intense… Smoke the no feeling, hot as tattooed biker who is a killer for hire… he gets the job done, no mess, no fuss… that is until Frankie (Hellion) Helburn! She won’t go down without a fight, she’s as feisty as she is smart and she’s hiding a massive secret that could threaten everything. His job is to use and hers is to survive, together these two are electric and raw… rub either of them the wrong way and it will be explosive! Old and New characters are bought into the mix and that’s what makes this story great, the old characters whose stories you know and love the banter they share so easy and the new characters who bring new blood and heat to the mix… this book had it all.

Excerpt

“All these bruises,” Smoke muses. “And not one of them caused by me.” He trails a hand up my arms and down my flat stomach. “Pity, but I still have time to leave my mark on you yet.”

My entire body stiffens. I’m as rigid as a corpse.

Smoke chuckles and I’m glad I’m facing away because his laugh is pure torture, causing his erection to vibrate against my folds which are aching for more contact.

“You will be punished, hellion. You can be sure of that.”

I look over my shoulder and meet his dark eyes which darken even further as his pupils dilate. His lingering gaze rakes me over from my feet to my breasts and back down to the space between my thighs. He licks his full bottom lip.

My stomach flips. My will to fight him off doesn’t waiver, but my body isn’t getting the message. My core clenches again. I turn back around to face the tile, digging my teeth into my lower lip until I taste my own blood.

His chest presses against my back, and his hardness pulses between my legs, rubbing against my inner thighs. He squirts some shampoo in his hand, working it into my hair. He tilts my head back and rinses my hair then slides his slick and soapy hand down my body.

I’m breathing rapidly now. Short quick breaths I can’t control. There’s a deep rumble in his throat. His hand travels lower and lower on my stomach until it’s between my legs. He’s working his thumb over my swollen nub, sending sparks of need, pangs of pleasure, and a wave of self-hatred, surging within my battered body and bruised soul.

“What…what are you doing?” I ask, seeing flashes of white hot lust behind my closed eyes.

“More questions…” his voice a hearty amused rasp. His fingers circle my clit while he continues to rock his hard cock between my legs. The pressure building is so strong it borders on painful.

Tears leak from my eyes. I’m so fucking mad at myself for being turned on. For Smoke being right. I’m so wet. He feels it. There’s no way he can’t feel it.

He leans in close. I’m stone still except for the tremors gripping my body. He licks the tear off my cheek and groans. He dips the tip of his finger inside of me and I tighten around the intrusion. It’s a foreign sensation. Strange. It feels both wrong and right. Pleasurable and painful. “Your tight little pussy is weeping too. I wonder if its tears taste the same.”

I look over my shoulder as he withdraws his finger and sucks it into his mouth. He groans. “Fear or desire. They both taste real fuckin’ good to me.”

He places his hand back between my legs. When I try to squeeze my thighs together to keep him out he parts them with his knee on a grunt and begins circling my clit again. This time harder. Faster.

I’m staying as still as I can, but when I feel something begin to happen inside my body. The sparks he ignited within me are all crashing together. I can’t hold back. My face scrunches as I try to fight the orgasm fighting its way out, but it’s no use. I can’t fight it. It’s too fucking strong. I’m so fucking close.

I arch my back without thinking, pressing my ass against him, begging for more. For what I need to push me over the edge.

Smoke hisses. “Oh, what I could do to this beautiful little pussy.”

The pleasure builds and builds as he strokes me harder. Faster. I’m about to come all over his fingers when the feeling is lost.

I spin around.

Smoke is gone.

I can’t see through the steam so I shut off the spray and wipe the water from my eyes only to see Smoke toweling off in front of the sink on the other side of the bathroom.

The only proof I have of what just happened between us was real is his cock. Erect. Thick. Huge. The purplish swollen head bobs against his abs, jutting out over the top of the towel he wraps around his waist.

“What…what just happened?” I stammer, leaning back against the wall for support.

Smoke steps forward, and when I go to jerk back, he reaches out and pinches my nipple painfully hard. I yelp and leap back, slipping on the tile, falling on my ass, taking the shower curtain down with me.

Smoke rips the curtain off my head and glares down at me with a triumphant grin on his evil beautiful face. “What just happened was called punishment and you got off easy. Next time I’ll split that tight pussy in two with my fucking cock.”

He goes to leave but stops. “You want pain?” he asks. “I’ll give it to you. You want pleasure? Now that’s something you’re gonna have to earn.”

He leaves, slamming the door behind him.

I release a shaky exhale.

I’d hoped the rest of my time with Smoke would be tolerable, but there’s no fucking way that’s going to happen. Not now. Not with my skin crawling with need. I’m losing my mind. About where I am. About what this is all about. About this beautiful horrible evil man.

I feel like I’ve already been split in two.

What Smoke is doing to me is far more than punishment.

It’s pure fucking torture.

Must Read!! Check out Our Reviews of Madman by WS Greer

by WS Greer
Genres: Dark Romance, Thriller/Suspense
Title: Madman
Series: Love & Chaos #1
Author: WS Greer
Genre:  Dark Romance/Thriller
Release Date: February 5, 2018 

 


Eyecandy Bookstore – “WS is a natural story teller in a raw, in your face kind of way.”


Natalie Weston – “THIS BOOK!!!!!! Madman was my introduction to W.S. Greer and I have to say what an introduction it was.”


#Minxes Love Books – “A beautifully dark, twisted and well written story that takes you hostage and will hold your attention right to the very end…”

People fear what they don’t understand. Maybe that’s why they all fear me. I’m sure they have their reasons, I just couldn’t possibly care what any of them are. As long as they’re afraid. 

Born to a drug dealer father and a drug addict mother, I’ve been through enough to make a normal person lose their mind five times over. I’m not normal. Normal is for weak people, and I’m anything but weak.

My childhood was made of nightmares, but there was one light in all my darkness. Her name was Reina Wilde, and when my mother would hit me or pass out in the middle of the living room on her high, I would confide in her. We were from completely different worlds, but she meant something to me, though I never figured out what, because she left. In the years that followed, I built a reputation for myself, and let go of any and all deluded notions of love. 

I’ll never go straight now. It’s just too much fun taking things from people who are powerless to stop me. And make no mistake about it, I take what I want, from who I want, when I want. 

I’m infamous in this city. But everything changes when, after years apart, I finally see Reina again, and she’s standing next to my enemy–the underboss of the Philadelphia mob. 

It’s not just about power anymore. It’s not about respect. No, this is personal now. 

Gasoline has been thrown on the flame, and for Reina, I’m about to burn the whole world to the ground.

OMG!! What an amazing book that was it was one of the best books I have I read for a long time. The title describes Solomon King to a T and what a character he really was but he wasn’t alone in the chaos that flew from the pages of this book. His sidekick and best friend Nix was very much a part of it. Reina also plays a huge role in the power plays in this book

This story starts on the troubles streets of Strawberry Mansions and how two young men refused to let their upbringings define who they were. They were going places whatever it took. To say they did anything to make there lives better is an understatement. In amongst the chaos, there is a broken love story between Solomon and Reina and it’s a beautiful one at that. I can’t tell you why and how it was broken because where’s the fun in that.

The Characters, yes all of them provided a fantastic story that just kept you hooked and wanting more destruction. Solomon was Bat Shit Crazy, you can’t deny but he also had a little caring side but his early life made him change from a fragile boy whom just couldn’t take any more of the kicks that life gave him.

This book is a huge recommend from me. Another contender for book of the year. But be warned it’s not a book of sunshine and flowers.

Solomon King met Reina Wilde the day he turned seventeen and she was nearly fifteen, both similar but also very different at the same time. Quickly becoming ‘friends’, which is unusual seeing as Solomon doesn’t really make friends!
That is until she vanishes!

This is a fast-paced book and very easy to read, not because it’s sunshine and rainbows-far from it- however, it’s written extremely well. This is the first book by this author that I have read but I’m positive it won’t be the last! He uses very emotive language that helps to give an extremely clear visual such as: ’embrace’ situations and no ‘regard’ to what is happening and feeling ‘livid’. WS Greer certainly takes his readers on a tumultuous emotional hurdy-gurdy.

A sarcastic wit is a tool used when Solomon reflects about his life. This author doesn’t beat around the bush, he shoots straight from the hip with his words, expressions and descriptions. Readers are never in doubt of what is happening.

The underworld of crime starts to really heat up just as Reina reenters Solomon’s life. Should he trust her? That’s the big question! Reina is such a strong, gutsy character and hard not to like but then the same goes for Solomon who is super confident in his abilities and doesn’t take any rubbish from anybody.

The best news is that this is only book 1, there will be more to follow!

Ella

Since I was a little girl, I have been surrounded by hate, death, murder, and
slavery. I’ve been guarded my whole life by my brother—Raze, the kingpin of the
underworld and the most feared individual in the United States of America. And
then further more guarded when I found out the president of The Devil’s Own MC
was my long lost half-brother. Being tossed around from one extreme protection
to another has left a part of me yearning to break out of it’s cage. The part
that I’ve tried to sugar coat and hide, because if she’s unleashed, everyone
would see just how much like my brothers I am.

Panting, wanting, needing to unleash the side of me I’ve always known was
there.

My secret is mine and my brothers.

Only they know what I hide and why I hide it. How I fight for love because if I
don’t, my rage would win and I’d be a mere shadow of the girl people have grown
to know.

But I broke.

And the man who held the hammer that shattered the walls I spent years building
to cage in my rage—was a psychopath.

I was so looking forward to finally read about Frost in this Devils Own MC series, the author has been teasing us with this complex character for a while and I am pleased to say the wait was worth it! From the first page you travel back to Raze, Miles, Millie, Beast, Hella, Meadow and the other characters who literally come alive on the page!

Ella and Frost, Frost and Ella…not an easy relationship but then they don’t do easy. Both very different but similar too in many ways!

Along the way there are some twists that make for even more interesting reading. Changing the dimensions and shaking things up is what this author excels at in her books.

Great descriptions of both characters and their inner thoughts as well as settings makes it easy to visualise this story. Even though they are mainly crazy, tough characters you can’t help but like them.

Bring on the next book please!

I have been waiting for this book for what seems like ages and could not wait to sink in and devour it which is exactly what I did.

Well, I thought I had just met him, but it turns out, there’s so much I don’t know about myself. That’s all thanks to a past so twisted, so warped, that no amount of money, or presidential status could wipe it clean. 
 
I’m the rebel child. Or as some may see it, the disappointment. I’ve never cared about expensive wedding gowns, or how much someone paid for a tailored suit. I don’t care if your wedding dress is from Walmart, or if it’s from some fancy, upscale designer line. 
 
So why am I marrying the devil dressed in a thousand-dollar 
suit? 
 
I’m about to find out how I got here. To marrying one of the most powerful men in the country. The road to finding out, though, is paved with darkness, painted with the blood of innocents, and it leads my ass straight to hell. Only this hell is a multi-million-dollar penthouse suite in New York City where Bryant Saint Royal, sits on his throne.

Wow… EPIC story once again!! I was turned inside out and upside down by all that was going on in this book! This is not a story for the faint of heart, be warned this is totally dark, totally twisted but totally insanely great… with an ending that will leave you speechless and wondering ‘what the hell just happened?’ I’m so freaking excited but also a little scared to see how far Amo will take this series!! Be sure to buckle up as this sure is going to be one heck of a bumpy ride!

Another incredible story by this very talented but somewhat scary author!

Isa is the daughter of the President of the USA and knows she is a round peg trying to fit into a square hole in her world. Brantley is a rich, powerful man in his early thirties who takes an avid interest in her. I can’t say too much more or I’ll give away too much.

Lurid descriptions of both characters and scenes throughout the story give extremely graphic details to enable you to feel like you are there watching everything unfold. It certainly keeps you on your toes with the fast pace of the story. Things become very wild on this Crowned by Hate ride.

This author uses some fantastic expressions like this one…
‘He’s maxed out of ego fuel.’
…when ISA talks about Brantley after meeting him at a fundraiser.

Little snippets of the story puzzle are littered throughout and yet I do believe it will take all three books to really comprehend this story fully. Bring it on sister!

Where do I begin to review a book that I neither loved or hated. I just found this story to be very flat and was dark more for the shock factor rather than out of necessity. Now don’t get me wrong. I love Amo Jones and her writing but this book just wasn’t for me. I may be over dark, I really don’t know. The book was well written in saying that as is always the case. I can’t go into detail as it would spoil this for someone else.

I would still recommend this book for the dark lovers out there as we all love different things, I guess this book will be someones book of year. Unfortunately it just isn’t mine.

You are either going to love this book or find yourself in a complete wonder as to how you feel about what you just read.  For me it is the latter.  I didn’t hate this book and I didn’t not like it, I just found that I couldn’t get into it and found it difficult to follow at times.
This book, however, will not stop me from loving this amazing author!  As you can’t LOVE everything they write and I am not going to write a review that is not an honest reflection of my feelings after reading it.
You may love it!  There is only one way to tell, Give it a try!!!

Robyn’s Review of Thumbelina’s Virtue by Geri Glen

by Geri Glenn
Genres: Dark Romance, MC Romance
Title: Thumbelina’s Virtue
Author: Geri Glenn
Genre: Dark/MC Romance/Modern Day Fairytale
Release Date: November 13, 2017

 

Cover: Cover Crush Designs
Edited: Rebel Edit & Design
Formatting: Shanoff Design

 

It’s Astor Bloom’s eighteenth birthday and things aren’t going her way. Enter the gruff and sexy biker to save the day, dubbing her Thumbelina and getting on her very last nerve. Before they really get a chance to know each other, his Thumbelina disappears, snatched from her bed as she sleeps. Now Cory’s on a rampage and will stop at nothing to save his girl from the clutches of the evil men that have taken her.

A dark and modern twist on the age-old fairytale, complete with bikers and plenty of steam.

* This is a novella that was previously published as part of the Fractured Fairytales Anthology. Some modifications have been made to the story. *


Thumbelina’s Virtue is another wonderful example of how this author knows the right formula to create an exciting and entertaining story, even a short one!

Astor Bloom is a young woman who has been overprotected by her mother. Cory O’Neill is a member of the local MC who meets her in unusual circumstances and sees the purity that is Astor. Being kidnapped is just the start of an adventure that is extremely scary for Astor.

Told from both Astor and Corey’s points of view we get to clearly see what each lead character is like and how they think. Both are really likeable and Corey’s mum is a highlight. Of course in any traditional fairytale, there are the evil characters and these are truly rotten to the core.

Being a novella it is a quick read but one of the main reasons is because of its fast pace and solid storyline. Excitement and fear are both felt on Astor’s traumatic adventure but there is a small pinch of humour to balance things out too. I honestly could have read more and more it was so good!

Where do I begin to describe this book and just I feel about it? I really don’t know and I was a little unsure about some of the content as I read it but I read it none the less and I am glad that I did. The creative mind of Tillie Cole is one that will have you completely baffled and wondering what, when and how the hell she comes up with these stories. I can truly say that I am glad that she writes these thoughts and limit provoking books as I am sure the world would be a little duller without her kind of dark.

This book as I said will provoke you, make you feel things that you have never felt before and caused a deep rage that you find hard to control.  I was angry at the world as I read this book. I was angry for the people in this story but also because I know that the world hides this stuff on a daily basis in plain sight but we just don’t see it for looking.

This story is Amazing, twisted and messed up but it’s a book that will stay with me for a long time to come and one that will see me looking at the world a little differently. After reading this book I will be a little less likely to turn a blind eye to a lot more.

This is a huge recommendation from me but be warned it not for the faint of heart or for those that have triggers. Go read this and enjoy……. Tick Tock!

Oh my this title is so apt! This author always stuns and amazes me with how she can create such dark stories where you feel every emotion deep inside!

Ellis lives at her family estate with her father and six uncles, her mother having passed away, a Mrs Jenkins was in charge of her day to day care. The groundskeeper’s young son, Heathan, came to live with him there and became firm friends with young Ellis. This is their story!

Tillie Cole does warn that there are possible triggers and that it’s a dark story…and it is! This is not a story that accepts the inappropriate behaviour, rather it highlights the disgust for it.

Very clever use of names from Heathan and the prisoner’s nicknames to the ‘Uncles’ personas given by Dolly and Rabbit. The whole correlation is genius!

The lead characters are so very different yet so easy to feel empathy for and compassion. There are some parts that are quite humorous like this thought of Heathan’s….
‘Dolly turned, and I saw the cashier try to make sense of what Dolly had said. Non-killers, I thought. So f***ing boring, living their mundane little lives.’
As well as some great vocabulary that is used expertly, like ‘bonkers’.

A few mysteries are wound through the story where, like a jigsaw puzzle, bit by bit is pieced together. The pictures are not pretty, they are devastating but answer many questions.

This is a very fast paced story and one that will blow your mind! Tick Tock! Tick Tock! Take the time to read this incredible tale.

Another fabulously dark psychological thrill ride by the wonderfully talented Tillie Cole!! I can’t begin to explain how this book made me feel… a story in which two characters had their souls completely destroyed and found in each other a f*&ked up bond that only the two of them could comprehend. Two unlikely friends… Dolly and Rabbit who were so cruelly ripped apart by a tragic twist of fate as children, only to be reunited 11 years later all grown up with hearts so black and vengeance on their minds. This was a book that will have you rethink all the fairy tales you were read as a child… down the rabbit hole we go!!

Rabbit turned off the country road we were on and pulled onto a dirt path. Bushy tree branches curled above us to create a tunnel. I leaned my head back and caught the last rays of sun slicing through the leaves. When I lifted my head I saw a building up ahead. A house made from wood stood before us.
Rabbit pulled the car to a halt. There were no sounds coming from this house. No screams or crying. Everything was just . . . silent.
Rabbit’s hands slid from the wheel, and without looking at me, he said, “This is where we’ll be staying for the next several days.”
I leaned forward and looked out of the window. “Your home?”
He shook his head. “The first stop on our adventure.” I looked at him and found his silver eyes were already on me. “We have many stops to go.”
My heart fluttered in nervous excitement. “And this is number one . . .” I whispered, more to myself than Rabbit.
Rabbit opened his door. I was still staring at the woods surrounding this place when my car door opened too. Rabbit stood, rabbit-headed cane in hand, waiting for me to leave the car. I swallowed back the nerves that were creeping up my throat and stepped out. The ground crunched beneath my shoes.
“This way.” Rabbit held his arm out toward the house. I fell into step beside him. I glanced all around us, searching for any sign of people. As if reading my mind, Rabbit said, “There is just you and I here for now. We will meet more people when our journey truly begins.”
“It has not begun?”
Rabbit led us to a wooden door and paused. Gripping the head of his cane tighter, he faced me and said, “Soon, darlin’. Before we go, we must prepare.” He opened the door. “But first . . . tea.”
My breath caught in my throat. Beyond the threshold lay the most perfect tea-party spread one ever did see. “Rabbit!” I gasped. My hands flew to my mouth. I took a step forward into the house and onward into the magical room just beyond. As I passed Rabbit I looked up to see him watching me. I moved swiftly to the long table in the center of the wooden-paneled room, and my eyes widened as I beheld the spread. A white tablecloth lay over the table. Tall seats were positioned around it—eight to be exact—and at each seat was set a plate, a teacup and a saucer. I ran my hand over the cloth and smiled at the silver-domed dishes in the center of the table. I looked behind me to find Rabbit, but he was nowhere in sight. Turning back to the table, I lifted the first silver dome to peek at what was underneath. My mouth watered when I saw strawberry tarts. Smiling in excitement, I skipped to the next. Victoria sponge. Desperate to see them all, I removed each cover—cucumber sandwiches, Bakewell tarts, Battenberg cake, carrot cake . . . so much cake! All of England’s finest delicacies.
My favorites.
A floorboard creaked behind me, and I turned to see Rabbit walking back into the room. I opened my mouth to ask him where everything came from, but then I spotted what he held in his hands.
“Tea?” I asked as Rabbit placed the silver tray, which held a teapot, a jug of milk and a bowl of sugar, on the table. I walked closer and closed my eyes as I inhaled deeply. “Earl Grey,” I whispered, smelling my absolute favorite tea in the entire world.
“Only ever Earl Grey for my little Dolly,” Rabbit confirmed and pulled out a chair for me. I sat down, and Rabbit tucked me in. He took the seat a few places down and gestured to the food. “Help yourself. After all, this tea party is in your honor.”
A giddy laugh escaped my throat as I reached forward and carefully selected a variety of cakes and sandwiches. When I had filled my plate, I took the teapot and poured myself a cup. Rabbit watched me with a peculiar look on his face. His lip was hooked at the corner, and his eyes were . . . soft. His eyes were never soft, always hard and focused, but as he looked at me now, they were almost gentle.
I swallowed, unsure what this strange feeling in my stomach was. I pressed my free hand to my stomach as a comfort against the strange tingling sensations inside. “Tea?” I offered, my voice barely above a whisper.
Rabbit nodded; not a word escaped his mouth. His gaze became more intense as I moved beside him and poured the steaming liquid into his cup. As my arm neared him, I felt him stiffen in his seat. Only a sliver of air prevented our limbs touching. His breathing grew labored as he watched me pour.
But we didn’t touch.
Clearing my throat, I placed the teapot back on the tray and moved to take my seat once again. Just as I took a step, an image floated into my head. Of me and Rabbit. Lips touching. My entire body tensed.
I heard Rabbit’s ragged breathing behind me. Goosebumps broke out along my body, chasing one another up my arms and up to the back of my neck. Shaking my head clear of the image, I sat back down.
I raised my eyes and found Rabbit watching me intensely. I lifted my teacup toward my lips. Rabbit did the same, but just as the lip of the teacup almost reached his mouth, I shouted, “Rabbit!” He froze. “Your little finger!” I scolded. I lowered my cup and shook my head. “You cannot drink tea without raising your little finger, silly!”
Rabbit exhaled, then bowed his head. “You’re right, darlin’. How could I forget?”
