The Prophecy, Book 2
For one agonizing moment, Zeke Neekoma thought his most feared vision had come true. Liz was lifeless in his arms, murdered by her own clan for one traitorous act—loving him. Then her father’s healing touch brought her back.
She hasn’t emerged from death unchanged. Now her healing gift leaves her drained, weak. Worse, Zeke is still tortured with visions of a woman covered in blood.
Liz aches for a future with Zeke, to always know the thrill of his body imprisoning hers with mindless pleasure. At her reanimation, she redoubles her determination to use her healing gifts to help his people—except Zeke refuses to allow her to use them.
But with her clan leader set to launch his next attack, Zeke and Jacob have no choice but to try to heal Liz with the same sensual force she used to save them. Yet it may not be enough to avert a merciless plan that will test Zeke’s humanity, risk Liz’s life—and threaten their timeless bond.



He brought her inside. Jacob followed.
“Close the door,” Zeke ordered.
His brother did.
Liz looked from the door to Jacob, and
finally to him. “What’s going on?”
“Take off your clothes,” Zeke said.
Liz didn’t move, not understanding
Zeke’s intent. Apparently, Jacob didn’t either.
He stared at his brother, his face
betraying his confusion and surprise. So different from days before when Jacob
would have delighted in her nudity and would have demanded his right to mount
her first.
Liz noticed how he avoided looking at
her now.
Jacob went to Zeke and spoke quietly.
“What are you doing?”
Zeke’s expression grew pained, perhaps
from sorrow, jealousy or a mixture of the two. He spoke on a sigh. “She needs
both of us.”
Liz shook her head. “What are you
talking about?”
“You refuse to stop healing,” Zeke
accused. He approached so quickly, Liz stepped back without thinking. Zeke
loomed over her, his masculinity heightened by his anger. “Nothing your father
or I say makes a difference, does it?”
Liz rested her hand on his chest. His
heart drummed fiercely, further betraying his frustration and worry. “How can I
stop what I was born to do when someone’s life is at risk?”
“What about your own?” he countered.
“If anything happens to me, my father
“No, he can’t,” Zeke interrupted. “He
doesn’t know what his power will do. I might lose you forever.” He grabbed her
arms and pulled her into him, burying his face in her hair. Anguish laced his
words. “Don’t you know that would kill me? Don’t you fucking care?”
Zeke. Liz wrapped her arms around him, resting her cheek against
his shoulder. As she spoke, her breath puffed against his tee. “How can you
even think that? I’m doing this for you. What if you’re injured?” She moaned at
the thought and held him even tighter. “What if you’re killed? Do you think I
could stand by and do nothing? Do you actually believe I’d want to save
Swearing beneath his breath, Zeke
hugged her so hard Liz could scarcely breathe. Then, as if he’d made a decision
he released her and stepped back. His eyes were shiny.
Jacob stood to the side, looking lost.
Zeke cleared his throat, then said,
“When you healed me and Jacob, you poured your life force into us. I don’t know
how your gift works. I wish to fuck I did. But I’ve been thinking that the part
of you we have inside of us—what allowed us to heal—can hopefully be returned
to you. It can somehow undo what the reanimation changed.”
“What?” Jacob blurted.
“It’s all we have,” Zeke said to his
brother. “What if her father’s gift stops working on her? What if it’s too
strong and does more damage than good? They’re related— so sharing the same
genetic material might also be a problem. I don’t know for certain. And I sure
as hell don’t want to risk finding out that her father’s healing power killed
Liz without any possibility of him bringing her back. We have to do this.”
Clearly bewildered, Jacob shook his
head. “Do what?”
“Make love to me,” Liz answered. “Get
as deep inside of me as you can. Return to me what I gave to you.”
Surprise and naked desire registered on
Jacob’s face, followed quickly by apprehension. He regarded his brother as though
he expected an argument from him because Liz had guessed wrong and there would
be another fight over her.
Zeke spoke softly. “I don’t know what
else to do. Liz needs your help.”
She could see that Zeke believed as
much. Never had he appeared as torn. He didn’t want to share her. She’d known
that shortly after she’d healed Jacob. However, Zeke was willing to do this to
make certain no harm came to her. That if she continued to challenge him and
saved anyone, she wouldn’t risk her life.
Jacob looked more uncertain than Liz
felt. “You’re sure about this? What you’re asking me to do.”
Zeke nodded.
“What about you?” Jacob asked Liz.
Doubt made him even more hesitant. Gone was the cocky warrior who’d demanded
she pleasure him, who’d played at sex and love. He was a man who didn’t know
where he belonged, what place he had in her life—if he had any at all.
“I know you don’t love me,” he said,
filling the growing silence before she could. “Just seeing how you look at Zeke
tells me what you feel for him. That’s okay. Nothing I can do about it.” He
looked past her as though it pained him to have admitted that and to meet her
gaze. “But do you at least like me a little? It doesn’t have to be a lot. I’m
not expecting or even hoping for that. Just a—”
“Jacob.” She’d spoken his name gently
so he’d stop. She ached for him, her sympathy mixed with tenderness she’d never
be able to deny. Leaving Zeke’s side, she went to Jacob and cupped his face in
her hands so he had to look at her.
Longing and despair shone in his eyes.
baby. Liz ran her thumbs over his cheeks, feeling the rasp of his
coming beard, enjoying how male it felt. “You’re wrong. I like you so damn
much.” Especially when he wasn’t putting on an act to try to compete with his
brother. When he allowed himself to be the man he really was…gentle and kind.
“I always have.”
He swallowed. “You’re sure?”
“I’ll prove it to you if you let me.”
Jacob glanced past her at Zeke. All the
previous times Jacob had wanted her, Zeke had made certain to stand in his
brother’s way.
Not now. He joined them, sandwiching
her body between his and Jacob’s.

Liz’s belly fluttered at their size and
scents, the warmth radiating from their skin.
