Soul Ties by Lisa Swallow Book One of the Soul Ties Series Published on July 22, 2013 by Limitless Publishing LLC
Synopsis:Ava didn't expect to find terrible secrets about the fate of the souls she takes. Or fall in love... Soul-hunter Ava has retrieved hundreds of souls from demons, but has never been assigned the dangerous mission for a Nephilim soul. She must hunt down Keir since she needs his Nephilim soul to trade for her freedom. When she arrives on campus and meets Keir, she also meets a strange girl, Dahlia, who has an inexplicable hold on him. Unexpectedly Ava discovers Keir holds secrets that are more valuable than his Nephilim soul - secrets she could trade for the life she wants. When she uncovers the true fate of the souls she takes back to her superiors, Ava's world is turned upside down. She finds herself in the middle of a war where the lines between good and evil are blurred and she only has two choices...
Betray Keir and live or join his battle and risk going to hell.
Cool air blew Ava’s hair into her face as the door swung open. Her neck tingled; someone was standing behind her.
Ava turned. Keir’s face was centimeters from hers. His eyes. Sucking her in like whirlpools - she wouldn’t let him.
“You got a hair cut,” she said, flicking her fingers toward his head.
“And yours is a different color.”
Memories of the night in the alley flew unbidden into Ava’s mind. Their bodies didn’t touch but electricity flowed from him, reddening her cheeks. Positive she saw a desire flicker across his eyes, Ava closed hers. Fuck. Make him move away. She breathed deeply, inadvertently inhaling his scent, sending more memories scattering across her mind and spreading the heat deep into her belly.
Keir’s mouth turned up at one corner, aware. “I knew you were listening. Dahlia didn’t.”
If he was expecting her to show surprise and yield he was wrong. “So what did you decide? I think I missed the crucial part, where you decided if you were going to get rid of me, or however Dahlia so delicately put it.”
“We didn’t decide anything, Ava.” He lifted an arm and set his palm on the wall behind her.
Dizziness crept up, her breathing came in shorter bursts, unsure of his intentions. His lips hovered close to hers, breath warm against her cheek.
“If you know who I am, why I came, why didn’t you kill me that night?” she said hoarsely.
Keir stepped back, pupils dilated. “You came to take my soul, correct?”
She squeezed her eyes shut. He knew the answer.
“You haven’t tried yet - why?” he asked.
Ava’s head scrambled through the fog to come up with a believable response. One which would keep her alive.
