Tuesday Teaser

Tuesday Teaser!!

Here's a throw back to an older work of mine. I just went through it, updating and editing. Even after all this time it still gets to me. My heart is in this story and no matter how many times I read it I can't help but love it. If you haven't read it you should go check it out.

This is a short teaser from Losing Levi

****

“Is she okay, Logan?” Dax asks quietly.
“I’m not sure, Dax,” Logan whispers.
I groan and open my eyes a little. Unfortunately, the voices I hear and the face that comes into view are completely different.
I look deep into the green eyes that I loved so much and smile.
“I miss you, Levi,” I whisper and then close my eyes tightly as I listen to their voices again.
“Damn, she really is messed up, isn’t she?” Dax states quietly.
“Yeah, you would be too if you lost someone that you loved. It’s not something that goes away overnight, and from the little she told me yesterday she only just lost the guy.” Logan explains.
“That really does suck.” Dax’s voice pauses and then continues. “That guy you saw her with last night, she told us that was her brother. I just figured I’d tell you that so you wouldn’t be mad about it when she does finally come back around.”
“She said he was her brother?” Logan asks with a hint of relief in his voice.
“Yeah, it was her half-brother. You must really like her, cause I’ve never seen you so mad about seeing a girl with another guy.” Dax snorts.
Logan answers after a few moments of silence. “I like her, but she will never fill Maggie’s place, no one will.”
Their voices go silent as I drift off into a deeper sleep.

Happy Reading!!

Update


Update


Image result for writingI've been absent for a little while so I'd like to give an update on what I'm currently working on and what you can expect for the coming months ahead.

As of right now, I am going through all of my already published books. I usually do this at the beginning of each year, but things kind of got in the way.

So, for the month of October, I'll be sorting through, updating, and editing all of my previous works. Right now I've gotten through three of my series and a few of my singles. If all goes as planned, I should be finished with this updating by November.

While I've been updating, I have been working on Brave, Book 4 in the Onyx Wolves Series. It's a slow process since I'm not focusing all of my attention on it, but I'm making progress.

Once I finish updating all of my previous works I'll be focusing my time on getting Brave done and then I'll move on to the next book in The Chosen Series.

Since the holidays are coming, I'm not going to make any promises for any releases this year. What I will be doing is gearing up for next year. I'll be planning releases while writing as fast as my fingers can type.

You can expect lots of Tuesday Teasers, Giveaways, and other fun things from me over the next few months.

A day in my boots.

Ever wonder how my day goes during the week, well wonder no more. Here's a little insight into my everyday routine being a stay at home mom and full time writer. (And thanks to my post's title the song 'These Boots Are Made For Walkin' by Loretta Lynn is stuck in my head. It fits perfectly.)

****

Early Mornings

First of all, let me say that I am definitely not a morning person and neither are either of my daughters. It makes getting all of us up for school an ordeal unlike any other. There are alarms for other alarms. We even have an alarm to remind us it's time to leave. When we all do manage to get up it's a scramble to get dressed and get fed before we're rushing out the door. I swear that 8 o'clock leave time comes way too quickly.

As you can see my phone is full of alarms. Alarms to wake up. Alarms to get my butt moving, and alarms to leave. I know that if I leave at a certain time I'll get to my destination at the correct time. I pride myself on never being late to drop my girls off for school or when picking them up.




The Drive to School

While other moms are putting their kids on buses I drive mine to school. It's a twenty minute ride there and a twenty minute ride back home. The plus side is the beautiful scenery that we get to see along the way. Most of our rides to school are pretty quiet but my oldest loves to sing along with the radio. As you can see the four lane highway we travel is pretty empty. I hardly ever have to go any slower than the speed limit. I might have to watch out for crossing deer but after living in Chicago I realize how fortunate I am. I love not having to fight traffic. (My daughter took the pictures of  our drive to and from school over my shoulder since I despise using my phone while driving. We had a nice discussion about that both times. It's never too early to teach them to use technology safely.)

Coming back Home

Once I get back home my goats and chickens demand my attention. Like my goats literally yell at me as I exit the car. They're only happy and quiet once they're fed. These lovely pygmy goats are Bae-Bae, Buckie, Rayne, and May. Once I'm done outside with the chores that need done every morning I move back into the house. The second I'm inside all of the indoor pets demand my attention. Kitties get fed, puppy dogs get fed and let outside to go potty. The bunny gets fed, and fresh water is distributed to everyone.


Hot Chocolate Time

Who doesn't like a nice cup of hot chocolate?

Once everyone is happy I finally get to sit down, if only for a moment. I don't drink coffee but I do have a morning ritual of drinking a cup of hot chocolate mixed with a breakfast essentials pack. Since I skip breakfast this is the next best thing. Mind you, I don't usually get to sit down until around 9:30 or 10:00.

While drinking my hot chocolate I bring out my laptop and check stats for the day while sitting on the couch. I put together necessary posts and whatnot. Most days I'm terrible at this and I end up putting it off until later in the day.

My Desk

This is where some of the magic is made. I just got my desk early September so I've been spending a lot of time here. And yes, it's always this clean. I can't stand clutter. Everything has to have it's place or I get a bit crazy.

As you can see I'm never alone at my desk. The second I leave my chair someone is always stealing it. That little darling on my chair is my special kitty, Sweetie. She absolutely adores me and has to be near me at all times. She also leaps into my arms and loves to give hugs and kisses.She's got some of the most beautiful blue eyes. Unfortunately, you can't see them very well in this picture.




Work and Housework

As soon as my hot chocolate is gone I get back to it. I do what needs to be done around the house to keep it in order. In between tasks I sit down and write. Sometimes I get a few sentences and other times I get a chapter out. I try to do my best to schedule out housework so that I'm not overwhelming myself. There's a fine line that I walk to keep everything running smoothly. Some days I take this time to catch up on sleep. Since I stay up so late at night I need this time in order to function.

The Pickup

When it's time to pick up my kids from school I leave early. I bring my laptop and a pop along. If I get to school early I get a great spot in the line of cars waiting to pick up students. I've learned that if I don't get this great spot my kids believe I'm leaving them at school. The last time I was slightly late I had both of them crying as they exited the building. I felt terrible and vowed never to let that happen again. So, I get to school forty minutes before dismissal. During this forty minutes I sip on my pop and pull out my laptop to get some more work done. Usually, I can type out at least a page before I have to put my things away. Trust me it helps the time pass by quickly.

Home Again

The ride back home from school is always lively. I get stories about how their days went. We sing and tell jokes along the way. Sometimes we take the back roads home. It takes a few minutes longer to get home but the kids love seeing the horses, cows, and other critters along the way. Once we're home it's time to unpack book bags, time for a snack, and then time for homework. I found getting homework done sooner rather than later in the day is best. Of course when it comes to math papers those wait until daddy comes home. He's the math wiz in our house. I'm terrible with math. Don't get me started on the common core math, ugh.

(Again, my daughter took the picture. I think she did a fantastic job.)



A Moment to Breathe

Once everyone is finished with homework I get to sit down for a break again. I usually snack on something quickly before I'm back up getting dinner ready. I always try to time it just right for when the hubby gets home.

Dinner Time

These things are the best. I'm a great cook but let's be honest sometimes it's a pain to prepare meals. When I'm not feeling it I pop one of these baby's into the oven and walk away. Thankfully everyone in this house gets excited for these meals. Sometimes they even request them.

Things get easier after dinner. I relax with the hubby and kids for a little while before I begin getting things ready for the next day. I pack lunches for everyone and then help the girls pick out outfits for the next day.

Before long it's bed time. My husband puts the kids to bed every night and then sits with me for a little while before going to bed himself. He wakes up super early for work so he gets sleepy pretty quickly.



The Night Shift

This is how I spend most of my nights. I sit on my comfy couch while watching Netflix. Can anyone guess what I'm watching tonight? Here's an easy hint: (You have to sing it) ' Two can keep a secret, if one of them is dead... '

Did you figure it out? It's Pretty Little Liars!!

I either spend my time watching some of my favorite shows while writing or I plug my headphones into my phone and listen to some music. It gets pretty quiet here at night while the hubby and kids are sleeping so between 10pm and 3am is when I get the bulk of my work done.





****

So, there you have it. That's a typical day for me. Of course there's a lot that fills the space between but I doubt anyone wants to see pictures of me mopping floors and scrubbing toilets. Doing what I love is the best, even if it doesn't mean my life isn't as exciting as the characters in my books.

Tuesday Teaser!!

Tuesday Teaser!!

I know I should be working on one of the many series that I'm behind on but I've been working on a side project. Sometimes these side projects give me a break between books. They help me clear my mind and give me a boost to work on other projects. Anyway, here's a teaser from a new Reverse Harem book that I'm working on called Midnight Moon. Those who have read Ivan's story may have noticed that I added the first three chapters for this story at the end.

Here's a slightly steamy teaser from Midnight Moon.

**Fair warning, this probably won't be released until sometime next year.**

****

Kane falls asleep quickly while I struggle. I couldn’t ignore his body pressed against mine. The vampire side of me was in overdrive. It wanted to be closer to him.
It takes every ounce of strength I have to keep my hands to myself.
I had to stay in control before I did something that I would regret.
Unfortunately my hormones win and I find myself turning to face Kane. I place my hand against his cheek and then lean in closer.
He doesn’t move as I press my lips firmly against his. Within a few seconds he comes to life under my touch. His hand reaches up to thread his finger through my hair while he kisses me back.
His yellow eyes stare into mine as we continue to kiss.
When we break apart he pants for his next breathe. “What was that for?”
“I couldn’t stop myself.” I whisper before reaching around to grab a handful of his hair to pull his lips back down to mine again.
After a few more minutes Kane pulls away. “We need to stop before this goes too far.”
I nod in agreement before placing my forehead against his chest. My fangs bite into my bottom lip as I fight to stay in control.
Moving slowly I kiss his bare chest before moving my lips to his neck.
His heartbeat speeds up as I scrape my fangs against his skin.
Before I can bite him he pushes me back onto the bed before moving his body over mine. Our combined weight pushes me into the mattress.
A soft moan falls from my lips as he nuzzles his face against my neck.
I close my eyes and grip him tightly as his fangs scrape across my neck. His touch causes me to shiver uncontrollably with excitement.
“Bite me.” I plead desperately.
If we weren’t going to go any farther I needed him to do this for me. I need a release and being bitten was nearly as good as having sex.
At least that’s what Tinsley had told me.
Right now I was really hoping that she had been telling me the truth.

Ivan Book 2.5

The Vampires of Linbridge

****

I've released Ivan's story early. Since things are a bit crazy here I decided not to wait. On a good note my father's surgery went well and he's recovering nicely.

Anyway, here it is...Ivan's story. Enjoy

****

Ivan has a war brewing inside of him.
He can’t escape the messes that he’s made and he can’t seem to figure out how to fix his relationship with Harper. He feels more like an outsider rather than part of the clan.
It doesn’t help that he also feels as if Harper is replacing him with Silas.
Struggling to contain his inner demons Ivan realizes that he can’t fight them on his own. He needs Erik. He needs James, and he needs Harper most of all.
Meanwhile, the search for Silas continues. Just when they lose hope of finding him Harper reveals a clue to where Marcus may have hidden him.
The clock ticks as the clan and Ivan rush to find Silas.
Just when everything comes together, Ivan faces the reality of mortality. Thanks to one of Marcus’s traps Ivan’s life is put at risk. He realizes that this might be the end, but he’s not going down without a fight. He’s got too much to live for.
Will he survive? With a little luck, he might.

Release Date and teaser for Ivan!!

Release Date for Ivan

Friday, September 29th, 2017!!

I've got a lot of work to make this happen but there it is, the release date. As soon as I've got the description ready and the pre-order I'll post links. For now since I'm falling a bit behind I'll leave you with a teaser. 

****

After a few minutes James looks at me. “This is bad, like really, really, bad.”
“What is it?” I ask reluctantly.
I wasn’t sure if I wanted to know what I had gotten myself into.
“I can’t do anything with it. If I do it will blow. If you move it will blow. Marcus rigged it so that no one could diffuse it.” He explains.
“What aren’t you telling me?” I push.
James sighs and glances away from me for a moment before finally answering me. “It’s rigged to a timer.”
“How much time do we have?” I ask.
“We have less than five minutes.” He replies.
“Damn it.” I curse.
I pinch the bridge of my nose while closing my eyes. “What do we do now?”
“I’ll search the rest of the house. Once I’m done I’ll figure out how to get you out of this house alive, okay.” James replies.
“James…” I breathe out. “I don’t think that’s a good idea. The last thing we need is both of us stuck in this position.”
“I’ll be careful, Ivan.” He insists.
Without another word he rushes off to check the rest of the house. Closing my eyes I take in a deep breath to keep myself calm.
I wasn’t honestly sure I would get out of this in one piece.
I sure as hell wouldn’t risk James’s life if it came down to it. I would force him to leave and stay behind to deal with this situation myself, even if it cost me my life.
After the longest three minutes of my life James returns.
“Did you find anything?” I ask.
He holds up a few sets of keys. “I found these scattered around. I have no idea why but we might need them. With the games that Marcus liked to play we can’t take anything for granted.”
I nod in agreement. God only knew what the keys were for. For all we knew they were necessary to release Silas. Then again they may have been placed there just as a distraction.
Either way it was smart thinking on James’s part to collect them.
“Were there any downstairs? I didn’t pay attention.” I reply.
“Obviously…” James snorts before sighing. “I’ll check quickly.”
He rushes off in a blur of motion before returning a few moments later.
I raise my brow in question as he holds up a sealed envelope with Harper’s name written on it.
“What the hell?” I breathe out.

James shrugs. “Who knows, but this doesn’t matter right now. Right now we have to figure out how to get you out of here before you get yourself blown up.”

Tuesday Teaser & Cover Reveal!!

Tuesday Teaser!!

I'm going to bundle a Cover Reveal and a Tuesday Teaser today. So, here it is Ivan's book. It's going to be Book 2.5 in The Vampires of Linbridge Series. It's going to be in Ivan's POV and will bridge Book Two and Book Three much like Erik Book 1.5 did. I've nearly finished writing Ivan's story so I'll be planning a release date soon. For now here's a teaser from Ivan's book. Enjoy!!

****

My mind wonders back to the days I had spent with Harper. I sort through everything I had done right along with everything I had done wrong.
Choosing Clara over Harper had been the worst mistake.
I had been a fool and it had cost me everything.
After a few more minutes on the road I spot a secluded rest stop where I could hopefully find someone to eat since I had failed to pack any blood before I had left.
Once again I was full of poor decisions.
Pulling into the rest stop I park my bike in the parking lot before climbing off of my seat. I sigh roughly while pulling my helmet off.
I scan the area quickly but only find one heartbeat inside the building.
Fortunately there wouldn’t be any witnesses but unfortunately I had to feed on whoever was there. I had no other choice. I had gone too long without eating.
When a young woman walks out of the building I curse my luck.
She looked just like Harper which was going to make this entire encounter painful. It was also going to make this situation dangerous for the girl.
Instead of moving towards her I force myself to remain in place while she goes to her car and then slips inside. It was best to let her leave.
I struggle not to run after her as she drives away.
Closing my eyes I growl out in frustration. Seconds later I find myself running after the girl’s car as my vicious side is unleashed.
She doesn’t get far before I slam my body into the side of her vehicle hard enough to cause it to flip. The pain from the impact only lasts for a moment as I watch the car roll over twice before landing upside down.
The scent of girl’s blood hits me and my fangs cut into my bottom lip as my hunger grows.
Once again I watch the girl as she crawls out of the car window and through the broken glass scattered on the ground. The glass only causes her to bleed more which sends my senses into overdrive.
Before I can stop myself I attack.
The girl screams but I ignore her while drinking down her sweet blood.
I don’t stop until her heart stops beating.
I finally pull away and pant for my next breath. I begin to panic as I look down at the girl and then towards her blood covering my hands.
I had killed her.

I had murdered this girl without a second thought.

Tuesday Teaser!!

Tuesday Teaser!!

While everyone's been reading Blood I've been working on Book 2.5. This one is going to be in Ivan's point of view. I chose him because there's a lot going on with him right now and he needed a voice to explain it all. I haven't created a cover yet so bear with me. The good news is that I'm nearly finished and I will be moving directly on to book 3. For now here's a teaser from Ivan's POV. Enjoy!!

****

The second Harper pulls away my world becomes dark once again. Our moment had ended and definitely not in the way that I had expected.
Her eyes revealed her disgust.
I swear my chest felt as if she had punched her hand straight through my chest to squeeze the life out of my heart.
Instead of sticking around to hear anything that she had to say I walk away.
Once I’m in my room I slam the door shut before leaning back against it.
Closing my eyes I try and fail to block the pain slicing through my heart. I pant for my next breath before whimpering softly.
When I can’t take any more I grab the nearest object, which happened to be a framed picture of Harper, and I, and throw it against the wall. The glass shatters and then falls to the floor.
I growl out as I grab something else and throw it.
Before I know it everything in my room is left lying in broken pieces on the floor.
I freeze in place when the door squeaks open.
“Oh, Ivan…” Harper whispers.
“Go away, Harper.” I snap a bit too harshly.
“No.” She replies stubbornly.
Growling in frustration I turn to face her before pointing towards the door. “Leave now.”
She shakes her head while crossing her arms across her chest. “No.”
“Damn it, Harper, just leave.” I try one more time.
“I’m not going to leave, Ivan. Not like this, not when you’re…” She trails off.
“When I’m what, Harper?” I grit out. “…When I’m about to lose control, when I’m about to rip my heart out because it hurts too much, or would you rather stare at me with disgust some more?”
“Enough, Ivan…” She snaps. “I’m worried about you, okay. I still care about you.”
“Then why did you look at me like the very thought of biting me made you sick?” I push.
 “I was angry with myself, Ivan.”She replies. “I didn’t want you to take more away from what happened than what it actually meant.”
“Obviously I knew it didn’t mean anything.” I growl out.
“Are you sure because from where I’m standing it appears that it meant much more to you than just nothing.” Harper argues while waving her hands around at the wreckage in my room.
“What does it matter anymore, Harper? You’ve already replaced me. You never have to love me again. James, Erik, and Silas can give you everything you want and need.” I reply.
“Ivan…” Harper begins softly. “I still need you.”
“No. You’re just being selfish.” I bite out.
“And you’re being a jerk.” She snarls. “Did you really think this would be easy, that it would be easy to stand in front of you after what you did to me?”
“I’m sorry, Harper.” I reply. “How can I make you see how sorry I am?”
She shakes her head while closing her eyes. “You just don’t get it, Ivan.”
“What is there to get?” I ask.
“You crushed my heart and then you flaunted your relationship with Clara in front of me. I can’t look at you, even now, without seeing her still.” Harper replies.

“I will never be able to get close to you until she disappears completely.” She adds.

Happy Reading!!

Harper is a young girl who grew up in a special town, a town called Linbridge. What’s so special about this town? Well, it might be the simple fact that most of its residents are vampires. They aren’t the bloodthirsty type though. They only want to live in peaceful harmony with the humans surrounding them. Of course no one dares to defy the rules that the vampires have placed over the town. When Harper’s eighteenth birthday comes it comes with the chance to become a protected or an unclaimed. The protected are well taken care of by their vampire protectors while the unclaimed are fair game for whatever goes bump in the night. A week before her birthday her current protector, Finnick, rejects his claim to continue being her protector. Harper’s whole world changes in an instant but it’s not all bad. She meets a few new friends. There’s a connection she has with them, one that she can’t exactly explain. Along with the new friends she is reunited with an old one, Alex. He’s one of the unclaimed. Just when things seem to be at their best, everything once again crumbles down around Harper. Lies are uncovered and some truths are revealed. There’s a bigger picture to Harper’s connection with her newest friends. They aren’t what they seem. In fact they aren’t even human. They’re vampires, part of a vampire clan to be precise and they hunt down other vampires who break the laws of their kind. Harper soon falls for one of the clan members but it all comes unraveled with the sudden appearance of an old flame. Clara has held the clans hearts for centuries. Will Clara’s past with the clan destroy everything Harper has or will another threat take her life away? Can love prevail or will it only destroy her more? Harper may run but she won’t be able to hide forever.

****

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.

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.

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.

Teaser Tuesday!!

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.”
