I have another snippet for you from A Harmony of Fire and Earth, which came out on Monday. (Yay!) I was going to check in with the book's other couple today, and then I decided to give you another snippet of Arden and Edmund first. They've survived the royal wedding and everything associated with it, and they're finally alone on their wedding night.
In their bedchamber, the curtains were already closed, candles providing a soft light, a fire in the fireplace warming the room. He went to the bed and pulled back the blankets. Arms wound around his middle, and he went willingly as Edmund pulled him back against his chest and pressed a kiss to his cheek.
And found himself turned and tossed among the pillows. Arden let out something close to a shriek in his shock, but it turned to laughter as Edmund climbed into the big bed with him. Arden opened his arms and drew Edmund close, welcoming his familiar weight, curling one leg around Edmund’s thighs to keep him close. They were smiling as they kissed, smiling still when Edmund leaned back enough to look into Arden’s eyes. “What do you want tonight? What would make you happy?”
