Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Nothing can stop Raine Cooper when she wants something…
Raine finally knows that her gorgeous neighbor, Torin St. James, is a legend straight out of Norse mythology, and that her feelings for him are strong. Torin is crazy about Raine too, breaking the one rule he lives by: Never fall for a mortal. The problem is he no longer remembers her, his memories erased by Norns—Norse destiny deities—to punish her for defying them.
So Raine comes up with a plan…
She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over again.
But she quickly learns that well-laid plans do not work when dealing with deities and supernatural beings. Desperate, Raine makes choices that could not only tear her and Torin further apart, but lead to the destruction of everything and everyone she loves.
Before I drew the curtains, I glanced across at Torin’s. This time I could see him.
He sat on his window, his nose buried in a book, the lock of hair falling across his forehead. "What things are you doing or sacrificing for me?" I asked.
He glanced up and cocked his eyebrows. Funny how he could convey so much with just a look. Right now, his expression said I was bugging him.
"Are you talking to me?" he asked.
He smirked. "Can’t keep away from me, can you?"
My cheeks grew warm. "I’m not stalking you if that’s what you’re thinking."
"Looks like it from here. I’m sitting here, minding my own business and you—"
"Please, just answer the stupid question and I’ll leave you alone."
He laughed. "I’m not sacrificing anything for you, Freckles. Andris is mistaken."
So he’d overheard our conversation. Why would Andris imply something if it weren’t true? I’d hate for Torin to put his life in danger again without me knowing about it. He went back to his book, completely ignoring my presence.
I studied him, his chiseled cheekbones and the slope of his strong jaw. My heart squeezed. I missed looking into his teasing sapphire eyes, the wicked grin he’d switch on and off on a whim. I didn’t want to walk away from him. From us.
"You’re staring," he said without looking up.
I wanted to ignore him, move away from the window, go downstairs, and lick my wounds, but my mouth tended to move faster than my brain.
"You wish." He glanced up and smirked. "I’m sitting in my favorite place, and you just happen to be in my line of vision," I added.
He cocked his eyebrows. "From that look in your eyes, you are plotting something. My untimely death perhaps?"
His previous words echoed in my head. …the girlish crush you think you have on me, it will pass.
"I’d have to care to contemplate hurting you, bonehead. You’re nothing to me."
