Book Excerpt

Indigo tangled her fingers in Bobby’s hair and tugged until he lifted his head. “You’re really not staying the night.”

“Nope,” he said firmly, and hoped she didn’t hear the regret or remember the erection he

still sported.

She arched her hips and rubbed against him, and he sighed. She hadn’t forgotten the


“I can’t believe this.” She pushed him off and sat up, and he backed hastily away. “This is so not what I expected from you.”

“Sorry,” he said, and winced when she hit him, a full-blown punch in the shoulder.

“Don’t you lie to me, Bobby Upton.” Her voice hit him like a battering ram, beating at the guilt gnawing its way through him, degrees harder than her fist had been. “What’s going on here?”

“Nothing. I just have to go.”

He eased back again and she pounced, tackling him onto the bed. He fought her in a panic, deflecting her hands as gently as he could while she grappled with his limbs and tried to turn him over. Her hand slipped through his guard and grasped his penis in a firm grip. He stilled, careful not to shift suddenly. Her hand tightened, making his breath hitch.

“Indigo, be careful.”

“Oh, I’m going to be careful, you weasel.” She squeezed again and his breath whooshed out of his body with the pressure of her hand, somewhere between pleasure and pain. “I want to see your back.”

Fear shot through him, as wild and desperate as his need for her. “No, baby. Please don’t ask me to do that.”

Her other hand latched onto his balls and her fingernails dug into his scrotum. “Turn over.”

Her face had gone cold, expressionless, though her voice was choked with anger and hurt. He sat up slowly and, when she let go, gave her his back, exposing the tattoo he’d tried so hard to hide from her, and with it, yet another reason for her to run from him. He squeezed his eyes closed against the regret and the fear, and breathed a silent prayer to the Lady Goddess.

Please let Indigo forgive me.

The hope that She would hear his plea eluded him.

“Whose mark is it? No.” Indigo’s breath came in heavy, uneven pants and her hands fell away from him. “I don’t want to know. Just tell me, Bobby. Tell me how you could have sex with me when you wear another woman’s mark on your shoulder.”

About The Book

enemyfrontTitle: The Enemy Within

Author: Lucy Varna

Genre: Romance (Paranormal/Suspense)

After fourteen years, Indigo Dupree returns to Tellowee, Georgia, to face the past she left behind. She’s tried of running, tired of hiding, and wants nothing more than to help her mother through the final days of her pregnancy. What she doesn’t want is to become romantically entangled, not even to the sinfully handsome Bobby Upton, whose kiss sent her fleeing a decade and a half before.

Bobby is the son of the Blade and a ruthless warrior in his own right. At sixteen, the age of manhood among the People, he tried to claim the woman he loved and failed, and spent the next decade hacking his way through Uncle Sam’s enemies. Now a successful businessman, he’s given the task of tracking down the People’s enemies, including India Furia, the twin sister of his heart’s only love.

Duty demands that Indigo atone for the sins of her sister by helping to bring her in. India has other ideas, ones that draw Indigo and Bobby into a deadly game involving the Prophecy of Light, forcing Indigo to choose between her duty and her heart.
