One thing the readers would find unique or interesting about this book:
There's a Hero Gryphon destined to fly into the readers' life with hopes of redeeming himself, and a sassy thief that is sure to steal your heart as she attempts to help. The tale is full of fun, intrigue, and a second chances.
Fearing she’d spring to life and bolt again, he soared to his feet and strode toward her, but she lay unmoving with only the rise and fall of her chest to tell him she still lived.
“Unfortunate for you, my dear sweet thief,” he murmured. Her unconscious state made slicing her neck and taking back what belonged to the museum that much easier. He crouched down next to her and released his talons from his fingertips with a slight shift.
“Ah...soooo...nice,” the thief murmured, her voice like a sweet melody to his ears.
He frowned and stared at her, his clawed hand ready to slash, but he didn’t act. Instead, he found himself mesmerized as her tongue slipped out to moisten those pink lips of hers. He thought she would awaken, but then she shifted her bottom and settled as she curled on her side.
He retracted his claws. Curiosity got the better of him, and he had to behold the thief’s true features. He reached for the ski mask and yanked it off her head. Waves of ginger strands tumbled out like autumn arriving by storm and summer being left behind by the raging winds.
He blinked in surprise, and his blood pounded in his temples as he absorbed her every feature, features he knew as well as his own. “Callista?” he breathed the name, though it took all the air from him as if she sucker punched him.
The thief...this woman couldn’t be his lady wife.
