The Great Pick Up Line featuring
Keir by Pippa Jay
“If you think we should leave, say so now,” she told Keir, her tone challenging.
“You believe you should remain?”
“Absolutely. I don’t like it when strangers come looking for me. Last time it was a bounty hunter working for the Siah-dhu.” She shivered and made a face. “But I can send you back to Lyagnius if you’d prefer.”
“I will not leave you here alone, not if there is a chance you are in danger.”
“Good. I wanted you to stay.” She grinned her approval and finished her drink. “Would you like to dance?”
Keir stared at the dancers. Although the steps were unknown to him, he recognized the formality of it as akin to something that might have been performed in the Adalucien court. But it had been twenty years since he had learned that.
“I do not know how.”
“Nor do I,” she admitted. “But it looks like fun.” She extended her hand to him in a slow, deliberate movement.
His breath caught. He stared at her open palm. Of its own volition, his hand moved until his fingers hovered just above hers. Then he withdrew it.
“It doesn’t matter,” she said, a fraction too quickly. “We don’t have to hold hands for the next one.”

A demon waiting to die…
An outcast reviled for his discolored skin and rumors of black magic, Keirlan de Corizi sees no hope for redemption. Imprisoned beneath the palace that was once his home, the legendary ‘Blue Demon of Adalucien’ waits for death to finally free him of his curse. But salvation comes in an unexpected guise.
A woman determined to save him.

When Keir mistakenly unleashes the dormant alien powers within him and earns exile from Lyagnius, Quin chooses to stand by him. Can he master his newfound abilities in time to save Quin from the darkness that seeks to possess her?
