Excerpt Spotlight: Dangerously Divine (A Broken Riders Novel) by Deborah Blake

November 28, 2017

302 pages
The author of the “wonderful” (Tamora Pierce) Baba Yaga novels and Dangerously Charming is back with a magically mesmerizing new tale about the dashing and daring Broken Riders...

The Riders: Three immortal brothers who kept the Baba Yagas safe, now stripped of their summons to protect. But fate is not finished with them—and their new callings are even more powerful...

Though his physical wounds have healed, Gregori Sun, the eldest of the Riders, remains in spiritual turmoil. His search for his mother, the one person able to heal his soul and save his life, is failing—until he crosses paths with a beautiful and fascinating librarian who might be the key to his salvation...

Ciera Evans’s bookish ways are just a guise. The product of a difficult past, she has dedicated her life to saving lost teens—by any means necessary. She works alone, but when a dark, brooding stranger proposes they team up to solve both their problems, she is tempted—in more ways than one...

After Ciera and Sun’s plans are derailed by dangerous enemies, they find themselves entangled in an ungodly affair—one that will force them to either find new strength together or be forever haunted by their pasts alone.

“Hello,” he said, tossing the black plastic bags effortlessly on top of the ones already teetering in an unsteady and odiferous mound. The new additions slithered wetly into place. “Were you looking for me?”

Ciera studied him for a moment before she spoke. Her posture was deliberately relaxed, but her clenched fists and tight jaw revealed some inner tension.

“Are you following me?” she asked, eyes boring into his. “Did he send you?”

Sun cocked an eyebrow. “If anything, it would seem that you are following me,” he said, indicating the Dumpster and the door. “And I do not know to which ‘he’ you are referring, but I assure you, the only one who sent me here was my teacher at the monastery.”

“Monastery?” Ciera blinked and shook her head, as if trying to adjust to a small but seismic change in the ground under her feet. “You’re amonk?”

Sun smothered a laugh at the dubious tone in her voice. Mikhail had used almost the exact same tone when Sun first informed his younger brother of his plans.
