InkSlinger Tour: Excerpt from RAVAGED by Elisabeth Naughton

Meet Elisabeth Naughton, author of RAVAGED

Before topping multiple bestseller lists—including those of the New York Times, USA Today, and the Wall Street Journal—Elisabeth Naughton taught middle school science. A rabid reader, she soon discovered she had a knack for creating stories with a chemistry of their own. The spark turned into a flame, and Naughton now writes full-time. Besides topping bestseller lists, her books have been nominated for some of the industry’s most prestigious awards, such as the RITA® and Golden Heart Awards from Romance Writers of America, the Australian Romance Reader Awards, and the Golden Leaf Award. When not dreaming up new stories, Naughton can be found spending time with her husband and three children in their western Oregon home.

Daphne knew she was playing with fire, but she no longer cared. Before Ari could push her away, she pressed her lips to his.
He tensed against her mouth. Every muscle in his body went rigid. And though she tried to keep it back, doubt rushed in. Doubt that she’d misread the look in his eyes. That he wasn’t attracted to her like she thought. That his being nice to her here was simply that: politeness and not motivated in any way by the same desire she’d been fighting ever since she awoke in this hold and realized the sexy, rugged, wounded Argonaut had saved her life.
Slowly, she eased back, breaking the kiss. He didn’t speak. Didn’t move. Just stared at her with those mismatched eyes that seemed to flicker just like the firelight. And in the silence her mind tumbled for excuses, for something she could say to ease the sudden awkwardness. She was a nymph, trained in the art of seduction by Sirens. Awkwardness wasn’t supposed to happen to her. But then he wasn’t supposed to happen to her either, and here she was, hoping for something that had absolutely nothing to do with her mission. Wanting—
“Where do you think you’re going?” His arm snaked around her back and pulled her in close to the heat of his body. “That wasn’t nearly enough.”
Daphne drew in one quick breath before Ari’s mouth closed over hers, but relief filled her lungs, seeped into her body, and made her more lightheaded than any wine. She opened instinctively, drawing his tongue into her mouth, groaning at the sweet, masculine taste of him filling her senses. His lips were soft, his mouth wet and alluring, and when he leaned closer and kissed her harder, she knew she was lost.
She let go of the blanket, pressed her hands against his chest, then shifted her weight and straddled his hips. The blanket fell to her waist. He didn’t break the kiss, continued to nip and suck and lick like he couldn’t get enough. Inching forward, she slid her fingers up his pecs then across his soft, scruffy jaw. His hands found her waist, tugging her even closer. His mouth turned greedy beneath hers. Hot. Wild.

Ravaged (Eternal Guardians, #7.5)

Ari--Once an Eternal Guardian, now he's nothing but a rogue mercenary with one singular focus: revenge. His guardian brothers all think he’s dead, but he is very much alive in the human realm, chipping away at Zeus’s Sirens every chance he can, reveling in his brutality and anonymity. Until, that is, he abducts the wrong female and his identity is finally exposed. It will take more than the Eternal Guardians, more even than the gods to rein Ari in after everything he’s done. It may just take the courage of one woman willing to stand up to a warrior who’s become a savage.
