Razor’s Traitorous Heart
The Alliance, Book 2
Kali Parks is a shadow in the war between two factions that are fighting to gain control of Chicago. Born and raised on the streets, she stands as a silent sentinel at her brother’s side as he battles to gain control. She will do whatever it takes to bring peace to those she has pledged her life to protect, including fighting against the creatures that came to their world almost six years before.
Razor, a councilman for the Alliance, has been sent to oversee the remaining Trivator troops on Earth and make sure the transition for the induction of Earth into the Alliance goes smoothly. He is the one the Alliance calls when they have a situation that needs to be resolved once and for all. His reputation for dealing with difficult rebels is renowned. He asks no questions and takes no prisoners. His job is to eliminate all threats to the Alliance.
He finds himself torn between duty and something he is unfamiliar with, his heart. When a shadow warrior saves his life and disappears, he discovers his world is no longer as cut and dry as he thought. The more he learns, the more he discovers he is not immune to the warrior’s passionate desire to fight to protect her people.
Forced by duty to settle the conflict, he must decide between the Alliance and his own desire to claim the unwilling warrior. When the conflict escalates, he does the only thing he can; he makes a pact with one of the factions in exchange for a prize that will surely cause a battle of a different kind – the one for his traitorous heart.
Will he be able to claim her before she escapes from him again? Or worse, will she sacrifice her life to protect those she loves before he can?

“Hey, is anyone alive in there?” A soft voice called out from behind him. “Oh God!”
Razor turned his head as far as he could but from the position he was in he couldn’t see who had called out. He could only feel it. A deep heat mixed with the pain running through him. Frustrated, he closed his eyes and wrapped his hand around the top of the metal in his leg and pulled in another deep breath in preparation for the pain that would come with removing it.
His eyes jerked open when he felt slender fingers close around his wrist. “Wait,” the husky voice whispered next to his ear. “Let me make sure it didn’t hit an artery. If it did, you’ll be dead before I can get you to safety.”
Razor turned his head and breathed in the sweet scent of wildflowers. A low moan escaped before he could contain it. The heat inside him flared again, rushing through him at such a speed that he had to close his eyes again to calm the dizziness.
“I am dead either way,” he murmured as the metal around them creaked and shifted again.“Not on my watch you aren’t,” the voice replied with a trace of amusement. “Now, keep your pantyhose on....
“Are you crazy, female?” His deep, rich voice asked in disbelief as he stared at her hanging from one hand over certain death. “You are going to get yourself killed!”
“Not tonight, I’m not,” Kali replied in a husky voice. “Just… Don’t let go of me yet. I’d hate for you to prove me wrong.”
He felt her body tremble. At first he thought it was because of fear of what her male would think of her risking her life. A flash of hot rage swept through him at the idea of her belonging to another male. A male like – Destin Parks. It took a few seconds for him to realize the trembling was caused by her chuckling.
“I don’t have a ‘male’ as you put it,” she replied as she gripped the open frame of the window and stepped through. He grasped her hands when she turned and held them out to help guide him through the opening. He used his good leg to steady his body as she pulled him inside. “Even if I did, he wouldn’t have much say about what I do.”
Razor rested his hands on her shoulders as she worked at cutting the thick cloth from his waist. “I would,” he answered in a surprisingly husky voice.
A soft, rich growl escaped him at her comment. “Where is your protector? Your male should not allow you to do such things.”Teaser 4:
“There is an underground utilities tunnel that we missed,” she replied. “I’ve given the information to Mason. He and his crew are sealing it even as we speak. That is why I was late. There may be others. I’ve instructed Mason to go back through the archives to see if there are any more building plans available. From the look of the tunnel, I would have to say it was built at the beginning of the last century.”
“Damn it! You went down there? Alone?” Destin asked, glaring angrily at her. “What if there had been more of Colbert’s men down there? Kali, if Colbert gets his hands on you…”
Kali’s eyes softened at the slight fear that creeped into her brother’s eyes as he remembered what had almost happened before. She stood up and walked over to him, wrapping her arms around his waist and resting her head on his chest. Her eyes closed as she listened to the steady beat of his heart. They only had each other and it terrified both of them when they thought how close they had come to losing each other.
“He won’t,” she promised as he held her close. “He isn’t smart enough and he knows if I ever get near him again it will be to shove a knife through his heart.”
Destin’s soft chuckle pulled a smile to her lips. “You’ve turned into a blood-thirsty little demon,” he remarked before he sobered and released her to step back. “You have to be more careful.”
“I will,” she teased as she returned to her seat. She was glad she had when he answered her next question with one of his own. “So, what are you going to do about Jeffrey?”
“Kill him,” he replied coldly as he returned to his own seat and sat down. “Now, when are you going to tell me about your encounter with the Trivator warrior and why you think they are going to be making a move on the city? I’ve been waiting two weeks and you still haven’t submitted your report on that incident.”
“Shit!” Kali exclaimed in irritation. “You weren’t supposed to know about that.”
Lifting her legs up, she found a good foothold and reached up to grab the back of his seat. The move had her straddling his legs and her forehead pressed firmly against his. She knew that he was going to be pissed with what she was about to do but there was no time for making the task at hand any easier. The moment he released her hand, she gripped the metal shard in his leg and pulled it out as quickly as possible.
“I’m sorry,” she whispered, staring into his eyes. “I’m so sorry.”
She dropped the blade of metal, letting it fall through the shattered glass to the ground below. Readjusting her position, she reached into her back pocket and pulled out the bandana that she sometimes used to hold her hair back. It was barely long enough when folded diagonally to wrap around his thigh.
She hated having to hurt him but some instinct told her that they were running out of time if they were going to get out of this alive. She needed him to be able to move and he wouldn’t be able to with a spear of metal in his leg. She glanced up as she finished tying the strip of cloth.
His head was pressed back against the seat, not an easy thing to do considering he was hanging by a few straps. His face was pale and his lips were pressed together so tightly they were almost white. His eyes had turned to a darker gold. It was the look of pain, anger and exhaustion shining in them that pulled at her sympathetic heart. She knew all too well all of those feelings.
She reached up and touched his cheek before pressing her lips lightly against his. It was the only thing she could think of to give him a moment of comfort. Resting her forehead against his again, she reached down and grasped the buckle holding the straps together.
