Who Is Mistral Dawn?

Mistral Dawn is a thirty-something gal who has lived on both coasts of the US but somehow never in the middle. She currently resides in the Southeast US with her kitty cats (please spay or neuter! :-)) where she works as a hospital drudge and attends graduate school. Taken By The Huntsman is her first effort at writing fiction and if it is well received she has ideas for several more novels and short-stories in this series. Please feel free to visit her on FaceBook or drop her a line at mistralkdawn@gmail.com

#FlashBackFriday!!! :-) An #Excerpt From #Taken By The #Huntsman!

#TGIF!! An #excerpt from #Taken By The #Huntsman! :-)

He jumped to his feet and Cassie backed up a step. The look in his eyes was dangerous and she was suddenly unsure of herself. He walked towards her, with all of the liquid grace of the predator that he was, and she retreated until she found herself backed against a wall. She looked up into his face and saw that his green eyes were glowing. He leaned towards her and put his hands on either side of her on the wall. Unaccountably she found herself getting aroused and was horrified. How could she be turned on at such a time?!?

Cadeyrn scented Cassie’s growing desire and growled again. He opened his mouth to better catch the scent and Cassie saw that his canines seemed to have lengthened. She gasped and Cadeyrn lowered his head and inhaled deeply right beside her neck. Cassie felt her heart beating a mile a minute but she also felt an answering pulse for each beat from between her legs and she felt moisture begin to gather. Her breath caught and she raised her hands and put them against his chest. She didn’t push him away, but she kept them there as a barrier.

He gently ran his lips up the side of her neck from her shoulder to her ear where he whispered “This is what I mean when I say you enjoy being chased. You are excited to be pursued and aroused by being trapped. Do you dare deny this when the scent of your desire hangs so heavily on you?” He gently nipped her ear and then ran his tongue over it.

Cassie gasped and felt her knees wobble. She tried to swallow and found her mouth was dry. She cleared her throat and pushed against his chest. “I want you to stop. Please stop now.” Her voice trembled.
