Stone Guardian in DARKLY DREAMING
by Danielle Monsch
“Excuse me? If you were so worried, then you shouldn’t have disappeared on me. I wasn’t the one who ran away after kissing someone senseless!”
“I…” Terak straightened, wrapping himself in his usual dignity. “I did not run away.”
“Sure seemed like that to me. For weeks every time I turned around I tripped over you, and then suddenly we share a kiss and you are nowhere to be found? What would you call that if not running away?”
“It was not running away. I needed to think upon the events of the last few days.”
“Yeah, including how you kissed me.”
“It was…it was…” He looked defeated. “Do you regret it?”
Talk about turning it around. Now she was on the defensive, looking into eyes filled with pain and hope. Larissa pushed her hair back, ducking her head. “I wouldn’t say I regretted it,” and she really shouldn’t mumble like that, because she didn’t want him to ask her to repeat what she said.
“Then what would you say?” he asked, his eyes sharpening.
“I’m…not unhappy it happened.”
“Does that mean you are happy it occurred?”
Wasn’t this leading the witness? Oh right, they weren’t in court. “I would have preferred other circumstances.”
“Such as you not being engaged.” Ha! There, couldn’t argue with that one.
“Valry and I are no longer Intended.”
Back the truck up. “What? When… How? Really?” Eloquence, thy name is Larissa Miller.
He studied her for several moments, and then he smiled.
A full-blown grin such as she had never seen on him. Happiness radiated from him in a way she’d never experienced before, and how was she supposed to respond when the sight was frying the synapses in her brain?
He advanced, walking toward her with a predatory grace he’d never displayed before. “You seem pleased by that news.”
Who was this gargoyle? He had always been reserved, almost courtly in his bearing before, not this magnetic, determined animal stalking his prey. And by his direct stare, there was no doubt that his prey was her.

Danielle Monsch Biography
Born to the pothole ridden streets of Pittsburgh, PA, USA Today Bestselling author Danielle Monsch started writing in a time long ago, a time when there were not enough vampire stories to read and she had to write her own to fill the void. Yes, such a time of darkness did indeed exist.
Danielle writes stories full of fantastical goodness and plenty of action, but always with lots of romance (and a bit of woo-hoo!) mixed in. Vampires and Werewolves and Demons and Angels, Sword & Sorcery, Fairy Tales, Updated Mythologies and the like - if it's out of the ordinary, it's fair game for her stories.
When not writing, Danielle reads comic books and watches cartoons (though she says she reads manga and watches anime, because saying it in a different language makes all the difference.) She listens to music, plays D&D, follows XKCD, watches movies with the Rifftrax on, and is mom to two amazing little girls and wife to her favorite guy in the world.
