“Don’t come any closer or I’ll shoot.” Her gun shook in her hands as if shewere a damn rookie. She fought to control her emotions but they swirled insideher. If she didn’t pull it together another tornado would manifest, and thatfrightened her more than the half-naked man with the eagle eyes in front ofher.

“Not another step,” she ordered, but he continued to stalk towards her.

She held her stance. Her finger trembled on the trigger.

He reached her. His chest pressed to the muzzle. He easily towered over her.She stared up into his golden eyes. No fear. Instead, she read another emotionin his eyes.


She should have felt threatened, and she did, but not because she believed hemeant to hurt her—it was much more fundamental than that. Her whole body seemedto come alive in his presence. Her breath shortened and she felt a flushstealing up underneath her tanned cheeks. She lowered her gaze and let herweapon fall to her side. Keeping her fingers tightly wrapped around the gripreminded her to remain grounded. Her reaction to him was so totally unlike her.

Up close, she found herself staring at a broad chest covered with a mantle offeathers. The man was made of solid muscle. Without volition, her gaze traveledupward, noting the powerful shoulders, the hard jaw, the firm lips and thestern expression he wore.

“You’re very brave, but your gun won’t help you against the tzitzimime.”

Ixa swallowed, searching for her voice. “Who are you? What are you?”

His hand came up. Gently, he traced the image of the hummingbird tattooed onher right bicep. Her muscle quivered under his touch. “Just as I thought. Youbear the mark,” he murmured.

In the distance she heard the confused shouts of her fellow officers. “They’llbe here soon.” They would have heard the shots. They’d be searching for her.

“I distorted the sound so they check in a different area. They will not be uponus yet.”

“You can do that?” It didn’t seem possible, except she didn’t have anexplanation for anything that had happened. Her brain seemed to be functioningin first gear, unable to catch up to anything that required substantialthought.

“I can do many things, you will find.”

He cupped her chin and tilted her head. His golden eyes came closer until hishead blotted out the sky and everything around her. Helpless, she waited forhis lips to touch hers.

His lips brushed hers, once, twice. She let out a sigh. He pressed down a thirdtime and she leaned into him, but before she could deepen the kiss, he releasedher and stepped back.

Her entire body zinged with energy. She stared up at him, bemused.

He chuckled, which snapped her out of her daze. Had she lost her mind?

“Don’t ever do that again.”

He smiled, an incredibly sexy smile that made her nerve endings sing with need.Before she could lash out at him again, he raised his arms up. A breeze passedaround them, ruffling the feathers adorning his chest. His image wavered andbent. She heard bones cracking, reshaping. Wave after wave of feathers burstforth in a soft, rippled covering. Where a warrior once stood, now a largeeagle spread its wings and gave a loud cry. The eagle flapped its wings andtook to the skies.

Ixa gasped. The gods will find a way to convince you. Her abuelo’s wordsechoed in her mind.
