Coming Soon!!

Blood, Book 2 in The Vampires of Linbridge Series

If you missed my post yesterday then I'd like to announce the release date again. Blood will be released (insert drum roll)...

Friday August 25th, 2017!!

Isn't this exciting!! I cannot wait to share the next book in this series with you. I've worked long nights in order to get it written and edited. I'm so glad that it's finished and ready to be published. So, after a long wait here it is. The pre-order link is below.

****

Running from Linbridge is the last thing Harper ever expected to be doing, but she really has no other choice. There was no way she could stay, especially after killing Clara and attacking Ivan and James.
At least she doesn’t have to run alone. Drake stays by her side through it all, just like he had promised to.
Even though they intended to run far from Linbridge they end up staying in the neighboring town where they find a friendly hotel owner who gives them a much needed break.
Just when Harper has a chance to catch a breath the clan finds her. James finds her and he’s not about to leave without her. Surprisingly he doesn’t hold what Harper had done against her. He only wants her to be safe and right now she’s not exactly safe, not with the vampire that Erik and Ivan are after running loose.
After some convincing Harper gives in and allows James back into her life. After all he hadn’t hurt her nearly as bad as Ivan and Erik had. James had remained in the background, until now. Now he was the only connection to the clan that Harper had. If she ever expected to get them back she needed to form a strong relationship with James.
With time and a push from James, Harper gives in and returns to Linbridge. Of course the fact that Ivan and Erik have been oddly silent pushes Harper to make her decision quicker.
Once James and Harper return to Linbridge they become increasingly worried, and for good reason. Ivan and Erik have changed, and not in a good way. They’ve allowed their vampire sides to take over fully causing them to be vicious and cruel.
Bringing them back lands on Harper’s shoulders.
She’s the only one who can reach their softer sides.
Just when things seem to be coming back together everything spins further out of control, especially after she meets the newest resident of Linbridge. Silas, he’s human but there’s something that’s drawing Harper towards him. His blood is calling to her even though she can’t drink it.
There’s only one choice to make and that choice only causes more problems. Marcus attacks and takes Silas away once he learns about Harper’s connection with him. Marcus then uses that bond to torture Harper along with Erik, Ivan, and James. He aims to destroy everything they have unless they give into his demands.
The clan isn’t going to allow that to happen, not without a fight.
Marcus has to be destroyed.
Unfortunately once they finally get the upper hand on Marcus the hope of getting Silas back disappears.
Harper’s left with more choices to make, ones that could cause the end of her or the end of the clan. For now all that Harper can do is keep Silas from completely losing hope.
They will find him; they just need more time and a little luck on their side.

Happy Reading!!

Coming Soon!!

Coming Tuesday August 22nd, 2017...

Sacrifice, Book 3 in The Angels Evermore Series!!

I bet I had everyone excited for a moment thinking that this post was about Blood, Book 2 in The Vampires of Linbridge Series. Well, guess what...I picked a release date for that too.

It will be coming Friday August 25th, 2017!!

Now that everyone has had a second to get their excitement out I'm going to continue on with the post for Sacrifice (Tomorrows post will be for Blood). Sacrifice is the final book in The Angels Evermore Series. I couldn't be happier to bring this series to an end. I love the story and the characters but this was one of the hardest stories that I've ever written. I swear pulling teeth would have been easier. Anyway, it's come to an end and while the third book isn't exactly as long as I had wanted it to be it wraps up the story nicely. I've even included some extras from Eli's Point of View at the end. 

****

Being in Marcus’s grasp is the last thing Piper wanted, but she’s stuck. It’s the only way to keep Eli and the others safe for now.
Unfortunately, is doesn’t keep her completely out of trouble.
It certainly doesn’t stop the war looming over their heads either. What it does do is speed it up. Eli wants Piper back and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen.
Marcus’s little games nearly end it all.
One terrible choice leaves Piper feeling unsure if she should even return to Eli. It was a simple mistake but one that she would never be able to take back. It was a mistake that could destroy their relationship.
When Eli finally comes after Marcus they end up finding themselves on the same side.
Their little feud is nothing compared to what’s about to happen.
A war amongst all angels is in the making. It turns out that Eli and Piper’s union had caused and unexpected impact. Angels can now be killed by other angels.
One by one the pure angels are being destroyed.
The end of days is closer than they expected.
Living in their last moments, Piper fixes her relationship with Eli while Marcus tries to make up for his own mistakes. They must pull together or parish in the upcoming battle.
Everyone must make sacrifices.
They will lose each other, but in the end they all get second chances.
True love will prevail.

Pre-order here: Sacrifice (The Angels Evermore Book 3)

Tuesday Teaser!!

Teaser Tuesday!!

This weeks teaser, once again, is from Blood, Book 2 in The Vampires of Linbridge Series.
(This will be the last teaser until it's release.)
I will be posting a release date soon!!
You may hate me for this teaser because it's one hell of a cliffhanger but it's not exactly as bad as it seems, I promise.  Enjoy!!

          “James, where’s James?” I cry.
          “I don’t know.” Erik breathes out before turning his full attention towards Silas. “Find James and then take her home where she’s safe. Call Godric and let him know that we’ve been attacked. Have him send Drake to help you watch over her until this is over.”
          Silas grunts in response as he nods his head.
          Without another word Erik rushes forward to help Ivan while Silas tugs me to come with him.
          I move along reluctantly. I wanted to help Ivan and Erik but at the same time James needed me, wherever he was.
          Silas stops and then turns to face me. He places his hands on either side of my face while looking deep into my eyes.
          “We need to do as Erik says. James needs us and the two of us need to stick together. If one of us was to get hurt it means that both of us will hurt.” Silas stresses.
          I nod in understanding.
          He was right. We would be of no use if either one of us ended up getting wounded.
          “Come on, James has to be somewhere close.” Silas insists confidently.
          Lightning brightens the sky and from the corner of my eye I catch the form of a body lying on the ground in an awkward position.
          I nearly scream as we approach.
          It was James but he was a mangled mess lying in a pool of his own blood. His chest was barely rising and falling with each breath.
          Kneeling down I take his face into my hands as tears mix with the rain dripping down my cheeks.
          He tries and fails to speak. Instead blood spill from his lips.
          “Shhhh. Stay quiet.” I whisper.
          “What do we do?” Silas asks in a near panic. “How do we fix this?”
          “I don’t know.” I whimper.
          The only thing I could think of was to give him my blood but since he was choking up blood I knew that it wouldn’t matter. He would never be able to swallow mine.
          Since both Silas and I were still new to this vampire world neither of us had any other idea of how to fix this. We were helpless.
          “Silas, help Ivan.” I command. “I need Erik here, now.”
          He nods and then stands. “No matter what, stay alive. As long as you’re alive I will survive.”
          I nod and then watch as he runs away.
          When no one returns I sob while grasping James’s hand in mine. “Please, don’t leave me.”
         “I’m not going to leave you.” He promises weakly within my mind.
          His strength was dwindling and at the rate he was losing blood he wouldn’t last much longer.
          Once a vampire lost too much blood they turned feral and then if they still didn’t get blood they would waist away and die.
          It wasn’t often that we heard of a vampire dying, but it happened. It had been the punishment for some who had broken the town’s rules. From what I had heard, it was a painful way to die for a vampire and from where I sat now I could see it was true.
          This was the exact scenario I had been afraid of when James had told me that he’d only seen darkness in his future.
          I feared these would be our last moments together.

This weeks teaser is from Blood, Book 2 in The Vampires of Linbridge Series. Enjoy!!

          “I have one question.” I begin. “Why did you do it, why did you bring Clara here?”
          He sighs while rubbing the back of his neck. “At first I thought it would be a good idea. I thought that she could keep you safe. I never expected her to be so vindictive. When she proposed the idea of joining our clan again I didn’t think twice. I was jealous of what you had with Ivan.”
          “Clara convinced me that it was a great idea. I had no idea that she’d completely push you out. Before I realized it she had her claws deep into Ivan, and you…you were out of my reach.” He adds.
          “Why didn’t you just talk to me?” I push.
          “I didn’t think that you’d listen.” He breathes out. “You were so wrapped up in Ivan that you barely noticed me, or even James, for that matter.”
          “Erik, I had no idea how this clan thing was supposed to work. No one told me that I couldn’t just be with Ivan.” I argue.
          “That’s my fault. I shouldn’t have allowed it to happen.” Erik replies.
          “I’m sorry, Harper. I can’t say it enough how sorry I am.” He then breathes out.
          I nod and then stand back up. “My heart has ached every day since I watched the three of you kiss Clara at the club. The only other time I felt that pain was when Finnick broke my heart.”
          “Everyone I’ve ever loved has broken my heart.” I whimper.
          “I can’t speak for the others but as long as I live I will never break your heart again, Harper. I want you and only you. Right now you hold my heart in your hands.” Erik replies before pausing briefly. “If you want me I’ll stay and if you want me to leave, I will.”
          “Erik…” I breathe out as I bow my head. “I don’t want you to leave. I never wanted you to leave. Even while I was with Ivan I felt something for you, you know that, and that’s why what you did hurt so much.”
          “What do you want me to do?” Erik asks softly as he takes another step closer to me.
          He lifts my chin to look into my eyes but I shrug his hand away. He sighs softly before kneeling down in front of me. I bite my lip as he gazes up at me while his hands grip my hips.
          “Please, forgive me, Harper. I’ll get on my knees everyday and beg for your forgiveness if that’s what it takes.” He pleads.
          Reaching down I place my hand against his cheek. He leans into my touch.
          “I can’t forgive you, Erik. I will someday, but not right now.” I whisper gently. “Give me time.”
          He nods and then closes his eyes.
          “Erik…” I whisper.
          “Yes…” He replies hoarsely as he reopens his eyes.
          “I still love you.” I insist sincerely.

This weeks teaser is from Blood, Book 2 in The Vampires of Linbridge Series. There's a new character coming to town!Enjoy!!

          “Would someone like to tell me what’s happening?” The stranger nearly screams as he places his hands on the back of his head nervously.
          “Harper is a special kind of vampire, Silas.” Godric answers him. “She only drinks other vampire’s blood. She is harmless to humans, such as you.”
          “Seriously…?” He barks out in disbelief.
          “Yes.” Godric replies shortly.
          “Godric, she bit me pretty deep.” Drake breathes out.
          “I’ll stay and heal you afterward then.” Godric sighs as he turns his attention back to us. “I need to speak with you, Megan, and Tyler anyway.”
          “Megan, can you get me another bag of blood?” Drake asks.
          This time Megan hands the bag to Silas. He stares at it for a moment before bringing it over to Drake. He holds it out towards us and I growl.
          Drake chuckles as he pulls my back against his chest while I continue to feed. “Easy, Silas, she gets a little possessive when she drinks. Most vampires do actually, and it’s best you don’t forget that.”
          Silas nods and then tries again to give Drake the bag of blood. This time I release my bite on Drake before I lunge towards Silas. Before I can bite him Drake grabs a hold of me.
“What was that?” Drake laughs nervously as I fight against him.
            “Silas, step back.” Godric commands before moving in front of me.
            He studies me closely before glancing over my shoulder at Drake. “Has she ever done that before with any human?”
           “No. That was a first.” Drake answers him.
           “Huh…” Godric breathes out.
            He turns to Silas before grabbing his arms roughly. Silas’s eyes go wide before he begins fighting against Godric’s grasp.
           “Silas, this would go a lot easier if you’d stop fighting me.” Godric growls out.
           “You can’t be seriously.” Silas spits out. “I did not sign up for this shit.”
           “This is the price you pay to live in this town.” Godric snaps. “Now, stop fighting.”
           “Godric, stop.” Drake demands.
           Instead of allowing Godric to follow through with whatever he had planned Drake holds onto me tightly with one arm while he place his wrist back into my mouth. My hunger takes over the rest. I close my eyes and drink down his blood as I sigh softly and relax against his body.
          “Maybe it would be best if I took her back to James.” Drake sighs.
          Finally gaining control I pull away from Drake. “I’ll be alright here with you guys, Drake.”
          “Are you sure about that?” Drake questions as he spins me around to face him. “You just tried to attack Silas.”
         “I’m fine. I just lost control for a few seconds.” I insist.
         He searches my eyes for a few moments before nodding his head. “Alright, but if you stay here you’re not leaving my side, okay.”
