Sweet Saturday Samples-Child of War Rising Son Preview
Greetings! Welcome to my post for this week’s Sweet Saturday Samples
The following is taken from the rough draft of Chapter Five of the upcoming
Child of War-Rising Son Book #3 in the OF WAR Series of ADULT paranormal romance/erotica suspense and drama.
“I never thought my noble lines would come to this. That I should watch some feral half-breed sit in that chair and be lauded.”
Ares turned around to see Zeus behind him watching Raven lap up the attention the women lavished on him. “I seem to remember Hercules sitting in that chair once. There was a feral half-breed, yours if I remember correctly. So just live with it, Father.”
“Perhaps I won’t have to live with it for much longer,” Zeus returned with a tinge of hopeful sarcasm.
“I’m sure Hades’ Trial will be no picnic for Raven.” That wasn’t the subject Zeus wanted more information on tonight, “So is it true? Did that Dark Fae whore of yours speak through the little vlákas
Ares heard the whispers all about the room and knew that Hunter couldn’t wait to open his mouth to his Mother when he got home earlier in the day. “I’m getting tired of people calling Rose by anything other than her name.” He glanced back at the little girl whom Onya was helping down from the table to join the party.
Most of the Olympians gave Rose a cursory glance and a quick ‘hello’ but it was obvious they didn’t want anything to do with her, she embarrassed them because she wasn’t perfect and beautiful, reminding them that they weren’t so damn perfect or beautiful either no matter their outward appearances. Holding Onya’s hand Rose toddled around the room trying to show her pretty toga and her new shoe to her relatives who just ignored her once they passed the point of civility. Hunter ran around the room and was paid much attention by all of the Olympians even though he wasn’t half as well-mannered as Rose. He was told how good, how strong, and how handsome he was while his Sister wasn’t given as much as a hug. Hunter was a sharp knife, he knew what was happening, he taunted her with it. Running here and there to everyone and keeping an eye on Rose’s face as the same people who passed her by stooped to talk to him. Ares felt the pull at his heart as the excited smile on Rose’s face began fading as she realized she wasn’t wanted here. That was until Hera held her arms out for the little girl and then settled her on her hip to rock back and forth even as she talked with Poseidon. Hera hugged Rose, kissed the girl’s cheek, and told her how pretty she looked tonight. Ares’ heart lightened a little but he couldn’t wait to get her out of here, back home, safe in the Fortress and her bed for the night far away from those would look down on her.
