The World Release Day!!!!!

The World Cover Art

The end of the Banished Gods series has arrived!  I had so much fun writing Ava and Odin’s love story- and today is the day The World finally releases!  This entire series has been a 5 year labor of love, and I can’t wait for you to read the final book in this now-complete series!

Here is a short excerpt:

More than anything, Ava wanted to touch Odin. She wanted to run her hands over him, make sure he was real. Make sure he was hers. Lowering her bad foot, she steadied herself against the Hummer.

“I’ve missed you,” she finally said and swore she saw relief in his silvery eyes. “Every day, trapped inside my head, I thought of you. And then one day, you came for me.” Her voice was full of wonder, even now, at the memory.

And still, he just waited.

“Was any of what you said true?” she finally asked, heart thumping. “Or was it only to help me break free?” She hurried on, scared to hear his answer. “Because if it was only to help, that’s okay, too. I totally get it, we’ve been enemies for a long time, and…”

Somehow, he’d moved to her, and now she was staring down at the front of that awful, bloody shirt. With a finger, he tipped her face up to his. “Everything,” he told her in a rough whisper. “Every single word I said that night was true.”

She sobbed out a breath, then sniffed.

“I’ve loved you for so long, I don’t think I even know when it started,” he told her softly, his thumb now caressing her cheek in languid circles. “Only that you’ve ruled my thoughts…” He kissed her forehead. “For so long now, I can’t even imagine you not being in them.”

His lips traveled down to her cheek, lingered there for a long moment while she waited in anticipation.

“All this time…every moment you’ve been gone, has killed me inside.”

She closed her eyes, savoring his warm breath on her lips.

“And now that you’ve come back to me, all I can think of is what you taste like.”

Finally, Odin claimed her lips, his kiss sweetly chaste. “Perfection,” was all he said as he drew back, his silver eyes glowing.
