This story is coming together really easily and well
Loving it- thinking of calling it Grieving Hearts
which will follow, Eternal Hearts and Bonded Hearts- we shall see :)
Hugh’s hand cracked across her cheek with a force that split her lips.
She tasted blood and smiled. Her vampire’s would kill him for this.
Seeing her smile, Hugh growled and hit her again. This time so hard that she was thrown to the floor.
