“I’m here,” he said, and went over to pick up Tavvy. Tavvy put his head down on Jules’ shoulder, looking sleepy, and getting paint all over Jules’ t-shirt. But Jules didn’t seem to care. He put his chin down in his younger brother’s curls and smiled at Emma.
“Forget it,” he said. “I’m going to take this one off to bed. You should probably get some sleep, too.”
But Emma’s veins were buzzing with a sharp elixir of anger and protectiveness. She could almost taste it in her mouth. No one hurt Julian. No one. Not even his much-missed, much-loved brother.

Julian’s blue-green eyes narrowed. “Emma, don’t try to —”
But she was already gone.
I love Emma and Julian’s relationship and how protective they are of each other!
Lady Midnight, the first book from her new trilogy, will be published on March 8, 2016.
