Sylvia Day


Disclaimer: May be edited or deleted prior to publication.

We cleaned up the mess from dinner together. As I reached for the rinsed dish Gideon held out for me to put in the dishwasher, he faked me out. He grabbed my hand instead and deftly set the plate on the counter. Catching me around the waist, he spun us into a dance. From the living room, I caught the strains of something beautiful laced with a woman’s pure, haunting voice.

“Who is this?” I asked, already breathless from the feel of Gideon’s powerful body flexing against mine. The desire that always smoldered between us flared, making me feel vibrant and alive. Every nerve ending sensitized, preparing for his touch. Hunger coiled tight with heated anticipation.

“No clue.” He swept me around the island and into the living room.

I surrendered to his masterful lead, loving that dancing was a passion we shared and awed by the obvious joy he felt in just being with me. That same pleasure effervesced within me, lightening my steps until it felt like we were gliding. As we approached the sound system, the music rose in volume. I heard the words “dark and dangerous” in the lyrics and stumbled in surprise.

“Too much wine, angel?” Gideon teased, pulling me closer.

But my attention was riveted to the music. The singer’s pain. A tormented relationship she likened to loving a ghost. The words reminded me of the days I believed I’d lost Gideon forever and my heart ached.

I looked up into his face. He was watching me with dark, glittering eyes.

“You looked so happy when you were dancing with your dad,” he said, and I knew he wanted treasured memories like that between us.

“I’m happy now,” I assured him, even as my eyes stung at the sight of his yearning, a longing I knew intimately. If souls could be mated with wishes, ours would be inextricably entwined.

Cupping his nape, I pulled his mouth down to mine. As our lips touched, his rhythm faltered. He stopped; hugging me so tightly my feet left the floor.

Unlike the heartbroken singer, I wasn’t in love with a ghost. I was in love with a flesh and blood man, one who made mistakes but learned from them, a man who was trying hard to better himself for me, a man who wanted us to work as desperately as I did.

“I’m never happier than when I’m with you,” I told him.

“Ah, Eva.”

He took my breath away with his kiss.

    Just finished reading bared and reflected – which means I am now completely addicted!! Counting down the days till May 7!!! 129 days to go…

  • I really think you should give us the first chapter preview, as you did before Reflect’s publishing…We were expecting Entwined in 2012 and May 7th is too far away 🙁

  • i don’t know why, but this passage seems like the epilogue…..

  • Martha

  • DebbieSB

    Hello Sylvia, I was wondering if you listen to various genres of music as I do. Anyway, there is a song recently released by Brian Culbertson, entitled “You’re My Music.” OMG it is a sultry love song that speaks to Gideon’s feelings for Eva. Also there is another called, In Your Hands by Jaheim. I just thought I would share.

  • Sweetheart

    This series is ADDICTIVE!!!!!! NEED MORE! I have had practically nothing to read since i finished Reflected in You!

  • Baedrei09

    She danced with her dad…….like a father daughter dance at aaaaa……….WEDDING?!?!? Did they get married and now hes trying to make memories for them??? I seriously can’t take this waiting!!! Please release before May 2013!!!!!

    • Kati Croatia

      no… she danced with her father when he came to NY to visit her… she also invited Gideon and Ireland, and as they came into the appartement, Eva was dancing, singing and laughing with her dad

  • How do you get these snippets? Do i need to sign up for something so that I can see all the new snippets or do you just keep checking the website??

  • EmbracingReading

    Amazing book…No matter how hard I try to distract myself by reading other books or try to get involved with other characters from other books…at the end of the day I still think about Eva and Gideon. I am 100% sure before the final book is released I will be rereading the first 2. I cant remember any of the previous books I have read leaving such an impression on me. Job well done Sylvia.

  • ces5210

    I would definitely read Seven Years to Sin and The Stranger I Married (in no particular order) and then check out the Georgian series that starts with Ask For It. Her historical fiction is really brilliant!

  • Al

    Historical – Love Pride and Pleasure!!!!

  • Judy

    Where are snippets # 2-4? I just finished Bared and Reflected and I’m dying here for more. LOL

  • Ed Hunyo

    so curious about this —–> “…… one who made mistakes but learned from them, a man who was trying hard to better himself for me,…. ” i wanna learn more about Gideon. …. and I hope Evas’ character has gone mature in this book. The last 2 she is a bit bratty (although she loves Gideon for sure) and makes things so hard for Gideon, fortunately he is very much inlove to her. ..

  • camille_daigo

    Seriously, I cant’ wait to finally read this book, it always keeps me hanging..

  • Read “This Man” by Jodie Ellen Malpas
    “Collide” by Gail McHugh
    “Sin’s and Needle” Karina Halle
    “Thoughtless Series” by S.C. Stephens
    “Consequences” by Aleatha Romig
    “Beauty from Pain”
    These are all great books – I read. Loved it all.
