BOOK SPOTLIGHT - EXCERPT & GIVEAWAY: Immortals (Runes #2) by Ednah Walters

Day two of our spotlight on Ednah Walters, Runes series, see's us taking a look at Immortals. If you haven't had the pleasure of reading this series as yet, then scroll down to enter the giveaway at the end of this post.

Nothing can stop Raine Cooper when she wants something...
Raine finally knows that her gorgeous neighbor, Torin St. James, is a legend straight out of Norse mythology, and that her feelings for him are strong. Torin is crazy about Raine too, breaking the one rule he lives by: Never fall for a mortal. The problem is he no longer remembers her, his memories erased by Norns—Norse destiny deities—to punish her for defying them.

So Raine comes up with a plan...
She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over again. 
But she quickly learns that well-laid plans do not work when dealing with deities and supernatural beings. Desperate, Raine makes choices that could not only tear her and Torin further apart, but lead to the destruction of everything and everyone she loves.

“I’m throwing a Halloween party next week. Want to come?” Drew asked.
“Maybe.” Cora, Eirik, and I had a weird Halloween tradition. We went treat-or-treating together then poured all our candy on the bed and traded pieces. Trading was the fun part. “Can my friends come, too?”
“If one of them is Cora, then yes,” Drew said and smirked.
Before I could respond, a telltale shiver rushed under my skin. Torin.
“What are you three plotting,” he asked from behind me. He was so close I could feel the heat from his body. Did he have to stand that close? I’d bet it was deliberate.
I took a deep breath before glancing at him, which was a mistake on so many levels. His scent, earthy and masculine, filled my nostrils, and my traitorous body responded. I wanted to wrap myself around him like a pretzel, bury my face in his neck and just soak him in. He looked so good in a dark-blue shirt under his leather jacket, which made his eyes pop. He hadn’t shaved again, but I wasn’t complaining. The shadow on his chin made him look even yummier.
“Cat got your tongue?” he teased.
“No. It’s still here.” I stuck out my tongue.
His eyes drifted to my lips. My mount went dry, my heart picking up tempo. When our gazes met, I blinked. How could he claim he didn’t want me yet look at me with such heat? I wanted to kick him or yell at him then kiss him senseless.
“We’re discussing my Halloween party,” Drew said.
“You’re coming, St. James, right?” Keith said.
Torin didn’t even look at them, his hot gaze on my face. “Are you going?”
His voice was velvet soft, making me want to purr. I had to swallow before answering. “Yes. Are you?”
“Aren’t you too busy to be partying?” he asked sharply, disapproval on his face.
Just like that, he destroyed my romantic thoughts. I shot him a mean smile.
“For Drew and Keith,” I hugged the two jocks’ arms. “I’ll make time. So are you going?”
“I don’t do Halloween.” He smirked and sauntered past me.
“Chicken,” I retorted.
He stopped and turned. The glint that entered his eyes should have warned me he was about to do something I wouldn’t like. He took a step that brought him closer. My first instinct was to walk away. Run. Say something. But the terrier in me was wagging its tail. His hand slipped around my waist and nudged me closer. My breath hitched. He grinned, liking my response. I stopped breathing altogether when our bodies touched. He felt so good, all muscles, heat, and pure temptation.
“Chicken? Me?” he mocked, his head dipping slowly, eyes daring me to, I don’t know, repeat what I’d said, stop him?
I wanted to say something snarky, but my mouth was too dry. When his nose gently brushed mine, I moaned. He was going to kiss me. Yes! My lips parted in anticipation.
