Jarek(Dragons of Preor Book 1)(55)By: Celia Kyle & Erin Tate
She smiled against his shoulder. “Like yours?”
“Shaa kouva, my heart has been many things. Battered and bruised then blackened when I nearly lost you. Almost destroyed when I believed I would die before I got to claim you.” He pulled away and cupped her cheeks, making sure she saw the truth in his eyes. “And now it glows with my feelings for you and what is yet to come for us.”
“What’s to come?” Her voice was barely a whisper.
“Love. Dragonlets. Pummeling their Uncle Evuklar for eavesdropping.” He glared at his friend lingering near the sliding glass doors and Melissa mirrored the movement. A wide smile slid over her lips and he felt himself smile in return. “And life, shaa kouva.” He reveled in the feel of her in his arms and vowed to enjoy the embrace as often as possible. Hopefully naked more often than not. “A very long, very happy life.”
