Book Release – A Love Unfinished by Bethany-Kris

Thanks so much to Molly for letting me stop by to introduce Dani to you. She seems quiet, but the girl has some fire behind her sweetness, I promise you that.

Your name: Dani Heartview  

1. Could you tell me a bit about your story?

Sure.

After my ex-fiancé, Holden, disappeared one morning without so much as a word, I was left heartbroken. I ran off to New York desperate to start fresh, to get away from the past I shared with him. A year after his disappearance, he shows back up in my life like he hadn’t missed a thing and demanding me back. But this new Holden, well, he’s nothing like the old one in some ways. Physically, emotionally, and characteristically different, I knew there was something going on with him.

Finally, I got it out of him. He’s a dragon, or he shifts into one.

Suddenly, things started to make a heck of a lot more sense.

2. Do you have a habit  you wish you could break?

The anxious smoking. It’s not social, or regular, but when I go into a panic, I smoke. Kind of ridiculous, I know. Crappy for your health, too.

3. What feature/s do you like most about yourself?

My eyes—they’re the window to the soul, after all.

4. What feature/s do you dislike most about yourself?

See above. I can’t get away with too much.

5. Do you consider yourself to be an introvert or extrovert?

Before Holden left, I was pretty extroverted. Now, I’m sadly introverted. But I’m getting back there.

6. What is your idea of a perfect day?

Now? Holden, a camera, the forest, and the dragons. That’s all I need.

7. If I asked you to write an entry in your journal what would it be about?

Forgiveness. Being humbled by the weight of it and how it feels to give it.

8. Tell me something no one else knows about you.

Holden knows everything about me. So, it’s not something no one knows. I’ll watch scary movies because I like them but be terrified for a week after because I did watch it. It’s an addiction. A horrible, nasty cycle.

9. What makes you happy?

Finding home.

10. What makes you sad?

Losing home.

11. What was it about Holden that made you fall in love with him?

He told me I was the first thing to ever feel like home to him. What more did I need?

12. What’s next for you?

Our story isn’t done, yet. Things like us can’t be left unfinished, so we’ll be around. Leading our clan, staying together, and loving like crazy.

Clans of Fire, Book One

Excerpt:

“Get away from me,” I hissed. “You have no right to be here.”

Emotion broke through on his handsome features, marring it with sadness as my eyes blurred with unshed tears. “Please, Dani…”

“Stop saying my name.” My voice was rising to an unhealthy octave. My heart was pounding at a too fast pace. Why would he be here? He had to have known I wouldn’t want him here. “Stop sharing my fucking air. For God sakes, get out of my space, Holden.”

“Ouch, man.”

Holden didn’t even glance back at his friend. “Shut up, Duran.” There was a timber in his tone, something else I didn’t recognize from the man standing before me. I felt wetness drip down my cheeks. “Oh, Dani, please don’t cry…I didn’t come here to make you cry, baby.”

Baby? “Who in the hel—”

“Dani!” Jade was out of the kitchen and rushing over to my side. She barely noted the men or my heartbroken expression. That, or she mistook it for the pain of the coffee spill. “Did you get burned?”

“I’m fine.” Those words were the biggest lie I’d ever spoken.

“She’s not,” Holden replied quietly. “Could you get a cool cloth and the first aid kit, if you have one?”

“I’m fine,” I repeated. “Jade, could you handle these guys, please?”

“Dani, wait.”

“Holden, I swear to God if you don’t walk out of this place right now and never look back, I will…” I couldn’t finish my sentence because there wasn’t anything I didn’t already feel for him. Hate. Love. Desire. Disgust. I felt all of that. With him being so close, it only served to make me more confused. Defeated, air rushed from my lungs, in a harsh exhale. “Leave, right now.”

Jade appeared lost. “Um…okay, I’m going to grab the first aid. You’re going to stay here and sit down.”

Duran smiled at Jade when no one responded. “Thanks, sweetheart.”

Holden hadn’t taken his eyes off me. When he moved forward, I backed up. “Don’t come any closer. I don’t want you near me.”

Agony pulled Holden’s full lips into a frown. “Let me explain.”

“I told you this wouldn’t be the best place to approach her,” Duran said. “We should have waited.”

“We don’t have that kind of time.”

“Why haven’t you left?” I asked, feeling a seething rage beginning to take over my initial shock and pain. “Have I not made it clear enough yet that you’re not welcomed?”

“You made it clear.” Holden’s gaze flickered up to the ceiling, a tick showing in his strong jaw. “But it’s not that simple. One minute, Dani. That’s all I’m asking for. After all we were, don’t you owe me that?”

“Owe you?” My hands trembled. The sudden burst of fury and courage that swept over me was all consuming. I stepped up to him and slammed my fist into his chest. Holden barely flinched and the action hurt me a great deal more than it must have him, but emotional pain registered in his eyes. “I owe you. Are you fucking insane? You left me, Holden. Left me in Tennessee with nothing. Not a goddamned explanation, not a goodbye…nothing!”

I hit him in the chest again, disbelief coursing through me. “How could you ever say that I owe you after everything you did to me? I waited for months. I called your phone every day. I texted, emailed, and left messages until your inbox was full. You could have been dead if not for that stupid note. I defended you when it was clear you didn’t want me anymore … Once, Holden. All you had to do was answer me back just once! You up and walked away from me, from our home, and our life without a single care in the world. And you have the audacity to say that I owe you anything?”

“Do not…” he growled, face suddenly mere inches from mine, “…say that I just walked away from you, Dani. I never would have walked away from you like that had I been given the choice. Ever.”

His response only served to fuel my rage. “Well, excuse me for living. What would you call me waking up to an empty house, with a note on the counter, and no you to be seen again, exactly?”

Anger clouded his face. “What did that note say, Dani?”

“Holden, calm down.” Duran was up off the bench, a hand on his friend’s shuddering arm. Rippling tension flowed between the men, but my former lover and fiancé didn’t register the one person attempting to help the situation. No, his focus was solely on me. “Come on, we’ll do this another time.”

“You won’t do it ever again,” I spat hatefully.

“Yes, I will. I have to. I can’t be me without you.” That confession struck me like a knife in the chest, the blade twisting painfully. Holden breathed deeply, the fight suddenly gone from his body as quickly as it came. “I will always come back for you. I lo—”

“No, you don’t. You never did. If you had, this…” I said with a wave at us, “…wouldn’t have happened.”
