Excerpt from Royal Captive...
Without quite knowing how it happened, Grayson walked the streets of Duvan with Imara on his arm and her bodyguard shadowing close behind.
There was an uncomfortable twist in his gut and his cheeks felt too warm, though that could have been from the Mortisian summer heat.
Cooking meats sizzled, spicing the air with an array of exotic peppers and spices. Men and women called out wares, children laughed and raced around the large market square, and those now-familiar purple flags fluttered everywhere. Music drifted among the stalls and some men and women sang, eager for every coin dropped in their cup.
“It’s more beautiful than I imagined,” Imara said, her eyes alight as she took everything in.
Grayson’s view of things was decidedly different. The square was overcrowded, chaotic, and far too loud. Assassins and thieves alike would thrive in such an environment. He kept his gaze moving over the continually shifting crowd.
Imara’s turquoise skirt swished against his leg as they walked, and she only released his arm when they reached a cart selling a variety of drinks. She chose one made from lemons and small red berries. She claimed it was tangy but sweet.
Grayson asked for water.
Imara watched him over the rim of her cup. “Are you sure you don’t want to try this?”
“I’m sure.” Just the smell made his mouth pinch.
She shrugged her narrow shoulders. She really was very short; her head barely reached his chest. After swallowing another sip, she said, “You’re quiet.”
“I don’t have anything to say.” Conversation was not a gift he possessed.
“That’s all right. I have a hundred questions! Now, let’s see . . . Is it true you made your first kill when you were three years old?”
Grayson choked on his water, coughing harshly as he whipped his head toward her. “What?”
“That’s how the story goes in Zennor,” she said easily. “The Black Viper learned the art of killing in the nursery—the way all Ryden children do—but he loved death more than the others. He killed his nursemaid when he was three and drank her blood, and he’s never gotten enough of the taste since.”
Grayson blinked at her. There were no words.
Her mouth twitched. “I’m assuming it’s not true, then?”
He finally managed to find his voice. “No.”
She bobbed her head. “After meeting you, I didn’t think it could be true. You’re not half as intimidating as your reputation.”
That didn’t exactly sound like a compliment.
Before he could make any response, Imara fired off her next question. “Is it true your mother has a poison garden?”
From the corner of his eye, he could see her bodyguard’s hand on his knife. It had probably gone there at her last question, though Grayson had been too busy choking to notice. “She does,” he confirmed.
“How interesting. My mother only embroiders.”
Imara grinned. “There! The Black Viper can laugh. Another rumor, utterly wrecked.”
