Sneak Peak Sunday

Here I am, trying to do two at once and I’m not even at home right now. Half the fun of these hops isn’t just reading the comments left by others, but it’s getting to read sneak peak snippets from all the truly talented authors who participate in the Hops with me. I am on the road this weekend, so anyone I don’t get a chance to read in the hotel, I will do as soon as I get home on Tuesday.

My Sneak Peak submission is from Demon Seduction. In this scene, Kael the Corruptor has trapped Delilah in the back broom closet at the bar where she works. As the line between seducer and seduced begin to blur, his wooing attempts are interrupted by the bartender. Kael Taps him–a form of mind control or, as Kael describes it, “Short-term memory loss combined with a healthy dose of imposed compliance. Don’t worry, I have no intention of sending him out to play in traffic.”

* * * * *

The bartender blinked, swaying. “The usual?”

“Please. Why don’t you go back to your bar and give us, say, fifteen minutes or so.”

“You need to leave,” Delilah told him. Those pink spots of embarrassment on her cheeks had flared into spots of real upset.

Kael looked at her, then sighed. “You’re right. That is shameful. Too much time spent with prostitutes; I apologize. I don’t know what I was thinking. Jackson, make that forty minutes.”

“Oh my God! You are a pig!”

“Forty minutes is extremely respectable considering I intend to do all the work, and this is a broom closet. My darling Delilah, I am trying to think of you.”

My 8 sentences for the Weekend Writing Warriors is going to be from Karly’s Wolf again. In this scene, Karly is coming out of the grocery story to find two Fish and Game wardens hovering near her car where Puppy is riding shotgun and waiting for her.

* * * * *

“Lap dog is a really good look for you.”

“Shut up. Go away.” That must have been the other warden, though it was such a dead-ringer for Colton’s voice that Karly froze again. She ducked down, trying to see if there was another pair of legs under the car, just in case Colton was on the driver’s side, but there was nothing. She crept closer, eyeing the unknown warden suspiciously.

Shaking his head, amusement heavy in his tone, Gabe asked, “What are you trying to do?”

“I’m sitting and I’m staying,” the voice—she could have sworn was Colton’s—dryly replied.

“Buddy—” Both wardens chuckled as Gabe leaned over the window, resting his arm across the top of her car. “—she’s got one hell of a surprise coming when she asks you to speak.”

* * * * *

Blurb: On the run from her abusive husband, Karly Whitaker flees across state lines, finally settling in an old mining town called Hollow Hills. Starting over had never been so scary, and to make it all worse, her first night there, she hits a dog—the biggest, blackest, wolf-like dog she’s ever seen. Although he appears more dazed than hurt, Karly takes him home. Now all she wants to do is hide, but fate, it seems, has other ideas. The local residents are determined to make her a part of their celebration, Fish and Game won’t leave her alone, and every morning Puppy vanishes, leaving her to deal with Colton Laurens all on her own. Colton Laurens—the dark-haired, honey-eyed Game warden, whose gentlest touch makes her battered heart ache and whose hungry kisses burn her from the inside out. For the first time in her life, Karly knows what it’s like to live unafraid. But Karly has more than ghosts haunting her footsteps, and not everything in Hollow Hills is what it seems.

Welcome to the 5/21 Hump Day Hook!

humpdayhook

Welcome to the Hump Day Hook! This week’s excerpt is from Demon Seduction. The set-up: Kael the Corruptor has tracked Delilah to the bar where she works and where he now sits, plotting her not-so-subtle seduction.

* * * * *

She tried to resist when he applied gentle pressure, but he turned her arm, exposing the pale, tender flesh of her inner wrist. His eyes never left hers as he bent and breathed her in, the faint freshness of her laundry detergent, bath soap, the deodorant she’d used this morning, and her—that individual flavor encoded in the very cells and form of her. He searched—Lila…not quite pure, not quite innocent…how utterly delicious—he smiled.

“Delilah.” His eyes closed. He rumbled, exhaling just so he could breathe her in again. Her flavor was almost orgasmic. “Right up there next to Eve on my list of favorite betrayers.”

* * * * *

Blurb: Kaelythus the Corruptor was a demon of the ninth echelon. He was strong, formidable, one who had walked the world for almost two millennia—and he had a problem.

It wasn’t that he’d been mugged on his way home, or the subsequent slip in self-control when he’d revealed himself in all his demonic glory and sent his would-be mugger running down the street. It wasn’t that news of his disgrace seemed to be developing wings, spreading farther and faster than he could counter. It wasn’t even that Kael was going to have to join forces with the infamous Hesoniel, a demon turned Redeemer, in a desperate bid to save himself before the Powers That Be judged him…retire-able. No. No, a clever demon could still come back from all that. Unfortunately for Kael, his biggest problem was who had seen him: his lovely, across-the-alley neighbor, Delilah.

The name alone should have told him something…

Thank you so much…

For all the comments. I did not expect so many! I was trying to respond individually, but apparently WordPress is having issues.

This was my first attempt at this and I didn’t do it quite right, but I promise I’ll get my act together for this weekend and have a blurb ready. 🙂

5/18 Weekend Writing Warriors

Hi all! This is my submission for this week’s Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors blog hop. This is from my current project–Karly’s Wolf–due out sometime next month. I hope you enjoy it and thanks for stopping by!

Karly's Wolf_ARE

She’s running, Mama Margo had said. Go and make your acquaintance so she’ll know who to go running to.

At the time she’d said it that had actually annoyed him a little, but now…his hand tightened even more. He despised bullies and men who beat on the women they should be protecting. He shook his head, already feeling that rock hardness tightening in his gut, spreading out cold before the heat of Change tempted him. He didn’t need to check the rearview mirror to know the honeyed amber of his eyes had lightened. Going wolf.

He swallowed back the urge.

Incubus Moon

Incubus Moon_ARE

Ishara, the Goddess of Life and Birth, once wandered the world of men and she loved them. She loved them so much that she gave birth to the incubi and spread her children among all who worshipped her. But her ‘gifts’ were not well-received and her children grew hungry and cruel. Now, centuries later, demons overrun the world and man is fast becoming an endangered species.

When the tiny farming community of Breckenhold is attacked, Veda becomes its only survivor and her life inextricably changed. Her body and will no longer her own—the captive plaything of the incubi who save her—it is to this shunned and forgotten goddess that Veda must now go if she hopes to stop Ishara’s savage children before her people and all of those she now holds dear are hunted into extinction.

Golden Song

Golden Song_ARE

Psychic Polly Martin saw him for the first time standing across the subway car. She knew he couldn’t be real. No one was that tall, that strong, that handsome. No one growled like that, so low and seductive under his breath, a rumbling sound that moved through her traitor’s body like a physical caress. Certainly no one had eyes like he did—glowing and yellow, vaguely reptilian in the way he watched her, so hungry and intent. Predatory, even as he smiled.

No, there was no way a man like that could be real. She had to be hallucinating. And really, after four very long days without sleep, the only thing that ought to surprise her about that was that it hadn’t happened sooner.

Warning: This is an erotic romance novelette is 23k words in length (78 printed pages) and involves dragon shape-shifters. There are explicit sex scenes, menage situations and anal intercourse. If you find any of that disturbing, you might not want to purchase this story.
