At that moment, a very tall man with long brown hair, a neat beard and mustache, iridescent green eyes and a glowing green jewel in the middle of his forehead strode casually into the room. With one long finger, he pressed a button with a large X engraved in the center. The room stopped shaking as the engines powered down. The man had an amused look on his face as he extended his hand to Leah.
“Welcome to Castle Necros,” he greeted. “I am your host, the Marquis Ciaran Kabral.”
“Leah La Sirene, witch queen of New Orleans,” Leah returned in a subdued voice. “I do humbly apologize for nearly launching your tower into space. I am not quite sure how it happened.”

“Is this really necessary?” Sonny demanded. “Couldn’t you just cuff her hands and allow her to walk freely? That collar must be choking her!”
“It is a light metal, Sir,” the guard, whose name was Zheng and who looked like an ancient warrior reassured Sonny.
“It’s all right, Sonny,” Felice reassured the junior Walton. “It really isn’t heavy at all. I’m grateful to be released from that cell. I know that you won’t let anything bad happen to me.”

This snippet comes from the ninth installment in the Carnal Invasion series entitled Love, Lust, and Lunacy.

  2. Sounds like it's only temporary freedom for Felice, unless she can put those 'fiddle playing' skills to greater use. ;) Nicely written!
