VIRTUAL TOUR & #GIVEAWAY - Shadowed Origins by Shyla Wolff

Shadowed Origins

by Shyla Wolff



The road to freedom is rarely an easy journey.

Following a lifetime of captivity and torture, fate tosses Kyley into a world of freedom and opportunities, danger and espionage. During her inspirational journey, discovery of life’s offerings shores up her determination to conquer the fears that keep her from exploring a world where romance is more than a fantasy. Her continued hard-won freedom hinges on the abilities of the paranormal group that rescued her. Always looking over her shoulder, she knows Roth must reacquire her to complete his plan for mass annihilation and anarchy.

Taylor’s telekinesis and special-ops training granted him seamless passage to work with Kenner’s paranormal unit. When he rescues a young waif from the clutches of her psychopathic guardian, he’s unprepared for the emotional backlash created by their connection.

The knowledge that her emotional baggage includes years of abuse dictates he help her conquer her triggers and fears. Aware she’s not encountered a kind touch, much less any expression of passion, he represses his own desires in order to teach her that not all physical contact includes pain. He longs to free her adventurous streak and inspire her to achieve emotional as well as physical confidence.

Since being adopted by her psychic warriors as a kid from the streets, Kiera’s never doubted her place in life or the direction of her path. Her unusual upbringing included weapons training, unique fighting skills, and how to maximize her paranormal abilities. After pulling Carlin, a computer prodigy, from death’s grasp, she learns you don’t always get to choose whom you love. Her destiny is twofold. Protect Carlin from the monster who wants to destroy the USA and find her mate—a man who will save her life, more than once.

A chance meeting between Kiera and Kyley sets off a chain of events they couldn’t prepare for and might not survive. Can the girls work together and prevent Roth from destroying the ones they love?


“Kyley, don’t push it.” Standing tall in front of her with feet at shoulder width apart and hands on hips, he silently dared her. The tears gracing her lashes didn’t detract from her beauty or cool his lust.

“Taylor, I need to know what you’re feeling. Please don’t hide anything from me. I’m not a child.”

“No. No, you’re certainly not. I can attest to that.” With an arched brow, his gaze drifted down to her chest as his tongue slowly licked his lower lip.

A blush rose from the top of her t-shirt to stain her cheeks a bright crimson.

Maybe that will be enough…

“Now you’re just being evasive. If you’re not going to be honest there’s no need to talk, is there?”

Akin to the snap of his wrist slingshot long ago, his control cracked. “Kyley…” He took her hand in his and boldly placed it on the front of his jeans. The evidence of his desire was plain to feel. “Does this feel like pity to you?” Christ! What in the hell am I doing? I’m not the kind of man she needs. Like a god damned roughneck courting a ballerina.

Her wide-eyed expression would’ve been priceless—on anyone else.

“Um…No.” Instead of snatching her hand back in revulsion, she pressed firmly.

The tables turned in the blink of an eye. Taylor’s legs almost buckled. Though his hips tilted forward if only a fraction, he attempted to lift her hand away. He wasn’t ready for this.

Instead, with her other hand, she removed his hand, but kept hers in place over his rapidly swelling dick.

Dear God, she’ll be the death of me.

Seconds passed, he tried to speak but nothing came out. Instead, pre-cum moistened the tip of his cock in preparation to what both heads desired. Down boy, not gonna happen.

Still, her smoky gaze held his while daring him to prove his words further.

“You really do want me…”

“Jesus. Of course I want you, Kyley.”

“Maybe you could show me? More?”

“Now’s not the time for this sweetheart. For what I have in mind, your body needs to be healed, one hundred percent. We’d better head back downstairs. Otherwise, we’ll be putting on a show for anyone who walks by. I’ll come back and fix the door in a bit. “ With a gentle firmness, he removed her hand. An instant chill accompanied the sudden return of reality and abhorrence of his behavior.
