This week beginning is from Stroke of Enticement, my favorite side story in Nalini Singh's Psy/Changeling series. It is a story I love to re-read and is from The Magical Christmas Cat by Lora Leigh, Erin McCarthy, Nalini Singh and Linda Winstead Jones. Re-reading it now at Christmas seemed appropriate.
"Annie looked up and met the angry eyes of the seven-year-old sitting at the child-sized desk in front of her own, arms crossed and lip jutting out. Bryan glared at her, the fury of his leopard apparent in every line of his body."
