Spotlight and Excerpt: Lure Of Obsession by Lisa Kessler

Lure Of Obsession by Lisa Kessler

Fated Mates meets Clash of the Titans!

Melanie Jacoby is the human vessel for the Muse of Tragic Poetry, but she isn't prepared for the tragedy of finding her roommate dead at the bottom of the stairs.

Nate Malone is the detective assigned to the case, but as the evidence points to an accidental fall, the visions begin. He sees a killer in a gold Kronos mask.

Mel is the next target, but Nate's determination to protect her is almost as strong as his desire for her.

And tragedy isn't part of his plan.

The Prophecy - "Every generation the nine daughters of Zeus are reborn, and with their rebirth are also nine Guardians. They will be marked by the gods, and given gifts to protect his treasure. Their abilities will only be unlocked when they find their muse."

Thanks for having me on the blog! I’m Lisa Kessler and I write paranormal romances with tortured heroes and strong heroines.
This scene happens after their first night together. Nate Malone still has MANY secrets, but his muse, Mel, is already cracking through his tough detective shell.
Mel wandered over to his closet and selected a black dress shirt for her morning ensemble. She had it almost buttoned all the way when Nate came out of the bathroom and froze.
She cringed. “Do you have a thing about someone wearing your clothes? Sorry. I should have asked first.”
No, it’s not that.” He swallowed and shook his head as a crooked smile crept onto his face. “If this is your ploy to get me back here fast, it’s definitely going to work.” He crossed the room and pulled her into his arms, one hand sliding up her leg and under the shirt to cup her ass. “You are so sexy.”
Mel grinned. “If I didn’t have morning breath, I’d kiss you.”
He laughed, pressing his lips to her forehead. “I’ll be right back.” As he headed to the door, he called over his shoulder, “And I’ll be collecting that kiss.”
Mel wandered into his kitchen and opened the fridge. Food, or lack thereof, could tell you a lot about a person. He had the typical “man staples,”—bacon, milk, eggs, a hunk of cheddar cheese, a little bit of butter—but the bottom shelf made her laugh. There was an open package of sour gummy worms. Cute.
She took out the eggs and bacon and went to work. When Nate came through the front door twenty minutes later, the bacon was almost done and she was whipping up the scrambled eggs.
He put a shopping bag on the counter and grinned. “Smells like heaven in here.”
Why, thank you.” She poured the eggs into the frying pan and handed him a spatula. “Can you cook these while I clean up?”
He took the spatula and smiled, and she headed for the bedroom, only stopping once to see if he was watching her ass wiggle under his shirt.
He chuckled. “I’d have to be dead not to look.”
I’m glad to see you’re in good health.” She grinned.
