    Skin of the Night – Chapter 3

    Skin of the Night § 3. Won’t You Come In? © Copyright C.K. Bennett 2022 His statement expelled the air from my lungs, but I couldn’t take my eyes off him. He had me trapped in his gaze. Astonished, I asked, ‘Are you always this crude?’ ‘Sorry,’ he apologised insincerely and put my cocktail back on the table. ‘I can’t seem to think straight in your presence. My tongue travels before my mind.’ The edge of his mouth tucked up to form a crooked smile, and I recognised it as the one he had already presented several times. It was unique to him, and a testament to his cunning and…

    Skin of the Night – Chapter 2

    Skin of the Night § 2. That’s More Like It © Copyright C.K. Bennett 2022 His bold reply took me aback. I hadn’t anticipated that he would be so direct, but I couldn’t deny that it was strangely refreshing. Suddenly I grew nervous. My heart started pounding. ‘Well . . .’ I drew in a deep breath, mustering courage. ‘You got what you wanted – something original.’ His lips tucked into a smile. ‘Without a doubt. Is your name as original as your personality, though?’ The astute method he employed as he made a third attempt to fish out my name impressed me. He was obviously a cunning man, so…

    The Night Series update: 26 June 2022

    The night series update 26.06.2022 My dear readers, For the sake of transparency, I’ve – after some serious consideration – come to the conclusion that I should probably announce the following to you lot: Before I say anything else, I just want to stress: do not panic. What I’m about to say will not actually impact your reading experience at all. I have made the decision to unpublish Skin of the Night and Into the Night with the intention of altering them. As such, I have now made the books unavailable for purchase. This is the exception to the rule and is not something I will be repeating for other…

    Heart of Stone: Release Update

    Heart of stone update 14.03.2022    My dear readers, Unfortunately, my editor has, same as me, been infected with COVID-19. To take the pressure off and get sufficient time to heal, she asked whether I could extend her deadline by a few weeks. As a consequence, I have decided to postpone the release of the book until I am sure she is feeling better. I don’t know when exactly this will be, but she’s told me that she hopes to return the manuscript to me by April 11th, 2022. Obviously this isn’t the best news, but at the same time, somebody’s health must always come first. Luckily I myself am…

    Heart of Stone – Chapter Three

    Heart of Stone 3 | Thought That Counts © Copyright C.K. Bennett 2021–2022 Leo’s dark eyes moved in Ferro’s direction, but I couldn’t read the emotion in them. The younger brother merely gazed back, as only Leo had heard me. Steering his eyes back to mine, Leo leaned close and whispered in my ear, ‘We’ll talk about this later.’ His tone was so cold that the hair rose on my arms. He was clearly angry, but I couldn’t understand why. Why did he care? It wasn’t like he actually wanted me, so why should it matter who I had kissed before? Besides, it had happened two years ago during a…

    Heart of Stone – Chapter Two

    Heart of Stone 2 | First Kiss © Copyright C.K. Bennett 2021–2022 While Leo and Ferro attended to business upstairs, Donna and I discussed the details of the upcoming wedding, which was to be held on the Amalfi Coast in Italy, where Leo’s family had roots. I wanted to get married by Lake Garda, but Isabella, Leo’s mother, had denied me the pleasure. Just as I thought of her, she climbed the stairs to the second floor, her wide hips swaying from side to side in her crimson mermaid gown. Her long black hair cascaded down her back, swinging with her smooth and attractive movements. Ten years her husband’s junior,…

    Heart of Stone – Chapter One

    Heart of Stone 1 | Engagement Party © Copyright C.K. Bennett 2021–2022 I drowned out the incessant droning of the crowd with my thoughts. It was something I had taught myself to do over the years. Being a child of one of the ‘Five Firms’ of London meant growing up in the spotlight with events to attend left, right and centre. Today was a bit different, however, because today, the occasion was mine and Leo’s engagement party. And he was late. ‘I just knew he would do this,’ my future sister-in-law, Donna, said with a sigh after a glance at her diamond-decorated gold wristwatch. Donna had soft, small features, and…
