Guy talk on a #ScintillatingSunday

7141383_orig

Happy Scintillating Sunday!

Have you ever wondered what demon brothers talk about? Wonder no more. Today I’m sharing an excerpt from my Paranormal Romance, Dark Fantasies. In Dark Fantasies, both brothers are driven by the demons inside of them. However, one brother embraces his inner demons, while the other fights his which makes for some interesting conversations between the two. Enjoy!

Excerpt-

“They wouldn’t let me leave,” Jackson argued.

“You expect me to believe three tiny females prevented you from leaving their home?”

“I’m serious K. Whenever I would try to go, one of them would beg me to stay. You know what that does to my incubus side. I can’t possibly leave the bed of a woman who needs me.”

Kelan was not only pissed that his brother had ditched him to go home with two sisters and their cousin. He was also pissed that he’d spent the six hours his brother was away thinking of the female he sniffed. Sniffed, who the hell does that? Thinking of her had made his prowling scent fill the air causing people who drove past him to almost wreck their cars since their attention was on him instead of the road.

What pissed him off even more was that he hadn’t joined his brother as the females requested, no begged. They begged him to join and he’d rejected them. What the hell was wrong with him? A quick, ‘sex and feed session’ would’ve eased the tension coiled within him. But no matter how prettily they begged, his beast was only prowling for one female – the brunette with the brown eyes. Again, man and beast were of the same mind. They wanted her and they would have her. First, they had to find her.

“You know if you would’ve come with us, instead of waiting outside in the car, you wouldn’t be in such a bad mood. I know you hate the animal inside of you, but if you give it what it wants every now and then you wouldn’t be so uptight.”

“I’m not a slave to my beast.” Kelan straightened his tie that had become crooked while he slumbered, waiting for Jackson.

“Yeah, yeah, I know. You’re a super demon and you know how to keep your thirst for blood and sex at bay. If you would’ve…”

“Just start the car and go.”

synopsis

One kiss was all it took.

Between work, family and her ex-boyfriend, Ashley Blakely is completely stressed out. She doesn’t have time to write in her fantasy diary or compete in the annual ‘fantasy wish’ competition her and her sisters have going. The only thing she wants for Christmas is normalcy.

All hope of a normal Christmas… or life… fly out the window the moment she’s kissed by Kelan Grant. Now she’s swept up in a whirlwind of romance, seduction and danger. She wants no part of this new life. Yet once she finds out that her sisters and her best friend are in jeopardy, she will do whatever it takes to keep them safe. Even allow herself to be kidnapped and handcuffed by a devil in disguise.

Dr. Kelan Grant always keeps his word. The moment he lays eyes on Ashley, he vows she will be his for eternity. He doesn’t care that his brother is mated to her sister and wants to keep their real heritage a secret from the Blakely family. Kelan will do whatever it takes to claim his bride.

Kidnapping her is the easy part. Winning her heart is going to take some strategic planning. But between the dark angels stalking him and Ashley’s constant need to break every item in his home, Kelan is having a hard time romancing the woman who he feels already belongs to him.

Will he get the eternity with Ashley he’s envisioned? Or will his enemies snatch her from his grasp and awaken the monster he tries to hide?

Dark thoughts on a #ScintillatingSunday

7141383_orig

Happy Scintillating Sunday. Today I’m sharing a few paragraphs from my paranormal romance, Dark Fantasies. I’m giving you a glimpse into an average conversation between two half incubus/ half vampire brothers, Kelan and Jackson. One is more beast than man and he’s having a hard time pretending to be human for his mate. The other wants nothing to do with mating. Enjoy.

Excerpt-

“I need you to keep an eye on Ashley and see if she does anything to make you think she remembers me.”

“Oh no, not doing that.”

“Come on Jack.”

“There’s almost nothing I wouldn’t do for you bro. If you kill someone, I’ll help you bury the body. If you hurt someone, I’ll help you clean up the mess. If you end up going to war with these witches, I’ll fight by your side. But I will not go near your mate as long as there is air in her body.”

“Why not?”

“I’ve seen how demons act when they have a mate. If you smell her scent on me you’re going to get pissed. You saw how Devin acted over Alyssa. The only thing we did was sit her outside so we could talk to him and the dude tried to kill me. I’m not going through that with you. In a few days your blood will be out of her system and you can compel her on your own. Until then, you keep an eye on her yourself. Just don’t let her see you and don’t drink from her again or let her drink from you.”

“I don’t trust myself around her.”

“Not my problem.”

“I could hurt her again.”

“Again, not my problem.”

“Jackson, I could kill her.” He hated saying that out loud.

“If you do, call me and I’ll help you get rid of the body. Until then, leave me out of it.”

Her Dream Lover wants forever. #ScintillatingSunday #TheDarkestLegion

7141383_orig

Happy Scintillating Sunday!

Today I’m sharing eight paragraphs from my latest paranormal novel, Her Dream Lover. The story follows the lives of Brandi Connelly and Draken Barrand. Brandi is the new overnight ward clerk at the psychiatric hospital Draken is trapped in.

After being an unwilling patient in the hospital for years, imagine Draken’s surprise when he finds out his mate is now working there. Having thought he’d never have one, Draken is obsessed with learning more about her. What he learns makes him eager to claim her. But first, he has to break free of his cell. Enjoy this snippet.

Drakentease

The sound of the doorknob turning put him on high alert. He heard her enter into the room, no, he felt her enter into his room. Her presence sent chills up his spine and kicked his need to protect into overdrive.
Slowly she made her way over to his cell. She whispered his name. Draken shivered. He rolled over onto his back. He didn’t yawn or attempt to play drowsy. He just stared at her and she returned his gaze.

“Hey,” she finally said after what seemed like forever. He would have been content with just staring at her.

“Hey,” he replied. Another round of silence followed.

“Did I wake you?” Draken shook his head. “Were you resting, because I can come back?”

“No, I wasn’t resting. I was thinking.”

“You seemed to have been deep in thought. Did I interrupt, because I can leave…?”

“I was thinking about you.”

A beautiful blush crept up her neck and flamed her cheeks. Draken wondered if her whole body was the same flushed color. His inner demon growled. Not yet, demon, Draken calmed the beast stirring inside him.

synopsis

Every time she closes her eyes he’s there…waiting for her.

Working night shift at a mental hospital was never Brandi Connelly’s dream job, but in order to pay her grandmother’s medical bills she’s willing to do whatever she has too. Her new job seems like a piece of cake, there is only one thing keeping her from enjoying it – Draken Barrand, a patient.

Thoughts of her patient haunt her night and day and she’s too embarrassed to tell anyone about the strange dreams she’s having about him. Partly because she’s afraid they will think she’s crazy…mostly because the things that go on while she’s sleeping make her blush.

As the nightly visions become all too real she’s afraid they’re not dreams at all. If these nightly fantasies are real, that means everything her dream lover has told her is real, which means that the little mating ritual she so excitedly participated in was real. Soon she will change into a demon and there is nothing she can do about it.

Claimed and marked, she now belongs to a creature of the night. There’s just one up side to this – he’s trapped behind the walls of a mental institution. That means she has time to figure out a way to stop the change… well she would’ve had time, if her mate hadn’t broken out of his cell.

Get Ready For Some Christmas Confusion on a #ScintillatingSunday


7141383_orig

Happy Sunday!

Welcome to another week of scintillating excerpts. Today I’m sharing eight paragraphs from my romantic comedy, Christmas Confusion. Christmas Confusion is a fun story about two neighbors who just can’t seem to figure this thing called love out.

Bailey is the shy virgin who gets nervous every time her neighbor talks to her. Max is the sexy boy next door who only wants one girl, Bailey, but he just can’t find the right words to tell her that. This Christmas it will take the help of their two besties to bring them together. Enjoy eight paragraphs from this hilarious romance.

excerpt

Oh–my–gosh, Bailey had no idea the movie ended on a sex scene. She was mortified. Beside her, Max’s eyes were glued to the screen. He sat completely still, he hands clenched into fists.

The hero lifts his bride’s dress up, exposing her slender white legs. She moans as her hero kisses her neck.

Bailey couldn’t suppress the moaned that escaped her lips, she was aroused. Max turned toward her, his eyes widening in surprise. Bailey could only imagine how ridiculous she looked to him. Cheeks flushed, lips parted slightly due to the moan that slipped through. “He’s a very thorough lover,” Bailey talked loudly, trying to drown out the moans coming from the TV screen. She had no idea the movie ended this way. It was supposed to be a romantic comedy. Sex wasn’t usually this… arousing in romantic comedies.

“That he is,” Max said, with his eyes on her and not the television screen.
His eyes on her, combined with the sounds coming from the television, was causing her to feel things she’d never felt before. Why was she imagining Max doing those things to her and why was he still staring at her? Was he hoping for the same things she were, a touch a caress… anything to get rid of the need that was taking hold of her.

Bailey licked her lips, she felt parched. “Um, can I have a bottle of water?”

“Water? Yeah, yeah, water. I got water.” Max jumped up quickly, causing the comforter to wrap around his legs nearly tripping him. Bailey reached for him, trying to keep him from falling. Her hand landed on his jogging pants, close to his… unmentionable part. She snatched her hand away quickly and he recoiled from her touch just as fast.

“Sorry… I didn’t want you to fall… I tried to catch you…” Bailey let her sentence trail away, as she watched him right himself and untangle his feet from within the covers.

“Thanks, it’s okay. I’m okay. Everything is okay. I’m gonna go get your water now.” Max exited the room quickly, as if hell hounds were nipping at his heels. She should go, she could tell she was making him uncomfortable and she’d almost touched his junk. Her whole body throbbed with a need she didn’t understand, and those damn TV characters wouldn’t stop moaning. This little date or whatever you wanted to call it was turning into a disaster.

Naughty Dreams On A #ScintillatingSunday #HerDreamLover

7141383_orig


Welcome to this week’s Scintillating Sunday Showcase. Today I’m sharing an excerpt from my paranormal romance, Her Dream Lover.

HDL NEW COVER

In Her Dream Lover you have two characters who are both struggling to find their place in this world. Plagued by insecurities and fears, they find that together they can accomplish anything and defeat any foe. But the road to that discovery is filled with obstacles that cause them to wonder if their mating is a blessing or a curse.

excerpt

“Uh, your clothes are wet,” Brandi told him in an attempt to lighten the mood, and rid his eyes of the dark look they held.

Her attempt failed, his dark look intensified. He took another step closer. This was definitely different than dreamland. The arousal she felt in her dreams was nothing compared to what she was feeling now. Her flesh was practically begging him to touch her.

“You’re wet.” He told her.

“Well I am standing naked in a pool beneath a waterfall.”

Draken lifted his hand which shook slightly. He caressed her nipple with his thumb. “Your wetness has nothing to do with water.”

Brandi swallowed and leaned into his touch.

“You’re wet because of me,” he told her.

“I am,” she confessed.

Working night shift at a mental hospital was never Brandi Connelly’s dream job, but in order to pay her grandmother’s medical bills she’s willing to do whatever she has too. Her new job seems like a piece of cake, there is only one thing keeping her from enjoying it – Draken Barrand, a patient.

Even Alphas can be vulnerable.

HDL NEW COVER

First of all, I must tell you that it was so fun writing these characters. From the main characters to the secondary characters, each one is captivating in their own way. I had fun watching the love story between Brandi and Draken unfold. I hope you love these two as much as I do. 🙂

Excerpt-

He would do whatever he had to in order for the painful memories of her childhood to disappear. He just hoped she didn’t one day consider this mating a painful memory. If he had more time he would do it the right way. He would court her and gain her trust, however time was not on his side. Draken deepened the kiss, enjoying the way it felt to finally have her in his arms. She was his, but there was still more to be done.

The mating words would mean nothing until they became one and he drank from her and she in turn drank from him. Draken brought his mate’s body closer to his and groaned at the contact. He was already hard. Brandi opened her mouth and a moan escaped. Draken took advantage of that by sliding his tongue pass her lips.

She tasted of mint gum. Mint was his new favorite flavor. His mate brought her hands up and cupped the back of his head as Draken grinded against her. He didn’t want to rush. He wanted this to be special for her. There were so many things he’d dreamed of doing to her, but he would have no idea if he was doing them right or not. What if she didn’t enjoy it? What if he couldn’t bring her to an orgasm?

He knew how to fight, knew how to protect, but he didn’t know how to please her. Brandi’s nails dug into his skin as she held on to him. It stung, but the pain felt good. He could feel his demon half crawling to the surface.

Though his demon couldn’t fully emerge, Draken still pulled back and stared down at his woman. She blinked up at him. The lust she felt showed in her expression. He wanted to satisfy her, wanted to slate her lust then tease her body until it returned.

“Why did you stop? I didn’t want you to stop.”

Both man and beast growled with pleasure. She didn’t want him to stop. Her confession made his confidence soar. It was a miracle he hadn’t scared her away with his inexperience. If he did it right, maybe she wouldn’t notice that this was his first time. Taking a deep breath, he silently begged his beast to be patient. There was something he wanted to do to her, something he’d dreamed of doing since he first smelled her scent. He would do it now, before he lost the nerve.

“Lie down on the pillows,” he told her. “I want to taste the rest of you.”

Tease Me On A #ScintillatingSunday

7141383_orig

Welcome to another Scintillating Sunday. This week my post is going to carry you on a journey out of this world. Enjoy eight paragraphs from my steamy sci-fi novella, Tease Me, Taste Me.

Tease Me, Taste Me is a story of four friends who get a chance to help their best friend’s mother with her new cyborg company. The only thing they have to do is test the cyborgs out and make sure they perform correctly. What they’re not supposed to do is fall in love with them.

Excerpt-

He slid her hair behind her ear. He looked just as in awe with her as she was with him. He twirled her hair around his finger. Tiffanie held herself still, wanting to touch him, to familiarize herself with his flesh.

But she didn’t know if that was appropriate or not. How was she supposed to behave in front of him? What all was he programmed to do? She thought they were created solely for sexual pleasure, yet he seemed content standing there playing with her hair. She was confused.

“I wondered what you would feel like,” his deep voice washed over her. She could listen to him talk all day long. He didn’t even have to say anything meaningful. She would be content hearing him recite the alphabet over and over again. “So far the only things I’ve touched are items in this room and items in the lab.”

“Really?” So he was a virgin. She was going to be his first. Well duh, this is a trial period. Still, she thought someone would’ve tested him out before her. What if he malfunctioned and electrocuted her or something?

“Yes, really. Before today, I’ve spent all of my time in the lab.”

“But,” how could she word this without sounding like a freak.
“You’re supposed to be knowledgeable in everything erotic.”

“I am,” he released her hair and rubbed his knuckles over the side of her face. “I learned by watching movies and…”

“So basically you studied porn?” He grinned and she nearly swooned. This dude was sex on a stick. She wanted to eat him up. Or maybe she’d let him eat her up.
