Falling in love wasn’t the goal. In fact, I didn’t think it was possible. That was until Bilan Asad-Yasin turned out to be more than I anticipated when I finally decided to explore her that early spring evening. Those curvy thighs, chiseled cheekbones, auburn freckles, her powerful resilience, and endless intellect.
She was a bad decision, this I knew. She’d be a great risk, this I understood. I was an Ellis man, she’d eventually learn. And she did. That’s when she ran, attempted to escape a world she’d soon have to learn to navigate and survive.
Yet, I was not the only one with esoteric layers. Bilan had her own secrets she kept from me, from the world. Those were the truths I’d use as fetters to keep her close forever.
She’d now assimilated the Ellis world.
Publisher’s Note: He Who Is a Lover is book TWO of a THREE book series. It ends on a suspenseful CLIFFHANGER. This book contains angst, violence, profanity, sexually explicit content, and gory material. If any of these elements is not what you prefer between the pages of a novel, this is not the venture for you.
Author’s Note: Yes, I proposed the winter of 2019 as a release period. I was done writing this installment by then, but didn’t have it to my editing team in enough time for it to be released before March 20th. However, twelve days late is better than twelve months. I missed the deadline for the first time in my career, and it will likely not be the last time. I just ask that you consider my release track record for serial installments (approx. every 2-5 months, and not egregious amounts of unaccounted time), and show some grace. #DMTPCO ~LB
