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 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.”

Progress Update



Progress Update

Image result for amwriting

Alright, I thought it was time for me to put out a progress update. I use to do monthly updates but somewhere along the way I got so busy that I stopped. Anyway, I missed being able to share my progress and the current projects that I'm working on. So, here's a list of projects I'm currently working on, planning, and a rough timeline of when I'd like to get these projects done.

****

Blood, Book 2 in The Vampires of Linbridge Series

First, I'd like to share my progress with Blood, Book 2 in The Vampires of Linbridge Series. So far I am slowly getting back on schedule. I'm really hoping to get the first draft done by August 1st. If that happens I could plan a release as soon as mid August, which is what I'm aiming for.  I'm really excited for the future of this story and where it's going. I'm also planning on a novella for James once book 2 is finished. That's still up in the air though. I have so many other projects that need my attention. I know fans of this series would like me to focus on only it but that's not possible. I will place it at the top of my list but I have other series that need my attention too. There are some that need finished and others that need second books written. Like I've said countless times before there's just not enough time in the day to write.

****

Sacrifice, Book 3 in The Angels Evermore Series

Once Blood is done my next project will be finishing up a series that I started way back when I started publishing. I will be editing and then hopefully publishing the final book in The Angels Evermore series. I'll tell you now that it might not be what everyone who has read that series expects but it wraps the series up. To be completely honest that has been the hardest series for me to have written. Nothing was easy. The entire process was a struggle which is why I'm ending it. I'd rather end it than leave it unfinished. That's my goal for all of my series actually. I may take awhile to get it out but none of my series will ever just end without some sort of closure. That's a vow I take to heart. I've read so many stories that end with book two and then never carry on. I fully understand how frustrating that can be when you fall in love with a series. Anyway, I would like to release this story around then end of August. It's all written but needs some major editing so I want to give myself more than enough time to do what needs to be done so I'm comfortable with the final draft. (I'll be sharing a cover reveal within the next few weeks for this book.)

****

The Rebels, Book 2 in The Chosen Series

Next on my list will be the second book in The Chosen Series. I loved this story the second I wrote it and I've found myself longing to get back to it. I love my sci-fi stories. One of my favorite things is to create new worlds. I have a feeling that I'll go from writing book 2 straight into writing book 3. That would be ideal but we'll see when the time comes. I would really like to get book 2 finished and released before the end of the year. I'll aim for a October release. Of course if possible I'd love to release it sooner.

****

Brave, Book 4 in The Onyx Wolves Series

After all of that, I'd like to get back to The Onyx Wolves Series. So far, I have a third of the forth book finished so it should be an easy project to continue with. Again, if I get on a role with writing this series I'll continue on with book five, which will possibly be the end to that series. I would love to have a November of December release for this series. Of course if it gets finished sooner I'd be glad.

****

Book 2 in The Winter Fae Series

This is another series that I need to work on but it's getting pushed back since I just released the first book only a few months ago. There's still a lot of planning that needs to be done but the second I get a chance this will get written. More than likely this book won't be released until the spring of 2018.

****


Last but not least, I have been planning, on the side, another Reverse Harem series. I'm not going to say much about the story right now but I'm getting excited about it. This is exciting for those of you who have become fans of The Vampires of Linbridge. I can't wait to share details about this series once I'm able to.

****

So, there it is, my list of to do's. As you can see I've got my plate full but I'm confident that I'll get these projects done and released soon. It may take some long sleepless nights in order to get them written but I'll do whatever it takes. 

****

Happy Reading!!

Tuesday Teaser!!

Teaser Tuesday!!

Since last Tuesday's teaser was for Snow I decided to share a longer teaser for The Vampires of Linbridge today. Enjoy!!

****

“Are you ready to go?” James calls out.
“Yes.” I breathe out.
He nods and then starts the bike’s engine. A moment later we take off down the road, away from the hotel that had become like home and back towards Linbridge.
It doesn’t take long before the town comes into view.
My heart pounds within my chest with a mixture of excitement and fear. I had no idea what to expect once we crossed the border but I was also excited to be able to see my family and friends again.
Until now I hadn’t realized how much I had missed them.
Once we’re in Linbridge James turns down the road in the opposite direction of home. Instead he drives towards my parent’s house on the other side of town.
I was relieved but at the same time nervous to see my parents. It had been a while since I had visited them and I felt guilty for not even calling to check in with them.
After a few minutes James parks the bike behind my father’s car in the short driveway. I climb off and then remove my helmet before staring at the house where I had grown up.
A million different emotions slam into me before James steps in front of me.
“Focus on me.” He instructs while placing his hands on either side of my face.
I nod and then sigh softly.
“Don’t worry, Harper, your parents have understood everything that you’ve been through. I’ve keep in contact with them while you were gone.” James then explains softly.
“You talked to them?” I whisper while searching his eyes.
“I did. I told them everything. I figured you’d want them to know that you were alright.” He replies.
“Did you tell them about Clara?” I push.
“No. They know she’s gone but they don’t know the truth. No one knows the truth but our clan, Drake, and Godric.” James reassures me.
Before I can say another word Mom rushes out of the house and down the steps. She holds her arms out towards me and I run into them.
“My baby girl…” She whispers softly into my hair as she embraces me tightly. “I couldn’t wait to hold you in my arms a second longer.”
“I’m sorry, I was just nervous about seeing you.” I reply honestly.
She leans back slightly to look me in the eyes. “You never have to be nervous to see us, Harper. I could care less about what’s happening. I just want to hold my daughter.”
“Now, come on inside. Your father wants to see you too.” Mom then pushes.
She guides me into the house with James following along behind us.
The second I step through the door Dad grabs me into an abrupt hug. “You had us worried, Harper. If it wasn’t for James we would have been frantic.”
“It’s been bad here the last few days.” Mom chimes in.
“What do you mean?” James asks.
“Erik and Ivan have been out of control.” She answers. “Elizabeth is dead and the council has fled. The only one who stayed behind is Godric.”
“The town is falling apart.” Dad breathes out.
“Have Erik and Ivan killed anyone?” James questions nervously.
“No but they’ve been attacking and feeding without caring about the town’s rules. Other vampires have begun following them.” Dad explains.
James curses while pinching the bridge of his nose. “This explains why I haven’t been able to connect with them.”
“What’s going on, James?” I whisper, unsure if I wanted to know.
“They’ve turned feral.” He answers simply before continuing on. “We’re going to have to stop them and force them to gain control again.”

Her life from that point hasn’t been pleasant. The only good that had come out of it is her best friend Avery. They comfort each other like brother and sister.
Nearly eighteen, Avery faces the possibility of being tossed out onto the streets.
Luckily a family comes for him.
Once again Izzy faces watching her best friend and her rock being pulled away from her, possibly forever this time. Her heart breaks as she realizes that her fate could land her on the streets if no one comes forward for her, too.
Izzy manages to catch the attention of the same family who had taken Avery. But it’s a first for them to take in a girl. Up until this point they had taken in boys to give them a last chance in a happy home.
To avoid any snags the oldest, Dorian, and his fiancée, Amber, decide to take Izzy in.
It’s the perfect fit. Instead of only having Avery Izzy finds herself surrounded by seven protective brothers who would do anything for her. Each of them is special in their own way but the one thing that they all understand the life of a foster child.
Unfortunately nothing can stop Izzy’s past from catching up with her. It’s something that could change her life forever. That is until fate steps in. Fate has other plans for Izzy.
Once things begin looking up for Izzy she jumps back into life in an attempt to move on and to place her past behind her once and for all.
That’s when she catches the eyes of the twins, Walker and Lynx. Walker is the brother who catches Izzy’s attention. At first she pushes him away, but once she realizes her mistake it’s too late. Walker has already moved on with another girl.
With everything stacking up against her again will Izzy be able to find her prince charming or will her past catch up with her again and snatch it all away. Will her prince be able to save her? Izzy can only hope for a happily ever after.

Tuesday Teaser!!

Happy 4th of July!!

I hope everyone is enjoying their day!! Here's your teaser for this week. Since Snow is so close to being released that's where the teaser will come from. Those who were hoping for a teaser from The Vampires of Linbridge will have to wait until next Tuesday, sorry.

****

Izzy…come on. Open the door.” Avery pleads for the tenth time since he had come home from school.
He and the guys had each tried to coax me out of the room but I had ignored each of them.
“Isabelle, please. We want to help you.” August tries this time.
Everyone goes quiet in the hallway before Dorian speaks loudly. “What the hell is going on?”
“She locked herself inside her room.” Avery snarls. “What did you say to her?”
“I didn’t say anything to her. I drove her home from school and dropped her off here.” Dorian replies.
“She packed her bag, Dorian.” Avery nearly yells. “You said something or did something that made her believe that you were putting her back into the system.”
No one says a word.
Seconds tick by painfully before Dorian lets out a long string of curses.
“Boys, why don’t you go do your chores. Dorian and I will take care of this.” August grunts.
I listen as their footsteps fade down the stairs before I move to sit up on the edge of my bed again nervously.
“How do I fix this, Dad?” Dorian asks.
Standing up I move over to the door quietly before placing my ear against the wood so I could hear them better.
“She’s scared, Dorian.” August replies. “She needs you to reassure her that she’s not going anywhere.”
“Do you really think she’s going to believe me?” Dorian whispers.
“Prove it to her, Dorian.” August insists. “She needs you. She needs a father.”
“How do I do that, Dad?” He questions, his voice filled with anxiety.
“You’ll figure it out.” August replies. “Give her some time.”
Without another word August’s heavy footsteps fade, leaving Dorian alone.

Teaser Tuesday!!

Teaser Tuesday!!

I know I'm late posting this but here's a teaser for Blood, Book 2 in The Vampires of Linbridge series.

****

Without warning James scoops me up into his arms before he carries me towards the bathroom. He stops at the door for a moment before glancing back at the door.
“The rooms free, Drake.” He calls out.
James then carries me into the bathroom before placing me to my feet. The sheet falls to the floor, exposing my bare body to him once again.
He pulls me snugly against his body while cupping my cheek in his hand.
“I’m going to spend a lifetime making you happy.” He vows. “I want you by my side every minute of every day.”
“That’s going to be hard to do when you return to Linbridge without me.” I whisper.
“I’m not going back without you, Harper.” He replies seriously. “There’s no way I would return home without you.”
“James…can we do this later?” I reply softly.
I wasn’t ready to talk about going back to Linbridge, not yet anyway. Thankfully James doesn’t fight me on the subject.
He nods. “Of course we can.”
Leaning down he brushes his lips across mine before moving to the side to turn the water on in the shower. He tests it a few moments later before lifting me up in his arms again while placing my legs around his waist.
I gasp as he carries me into the shower, under the hot water.
Another gasp leaves my lips as he once again joins his body with mine.
Being with James was an entirely different experience than being with Erik or Ivan. James was gentle. He made every move and every touch feel as though it would light my body on fire.
There wasn’t a moment where he took his attention away from me.
He made me feel the way I had always wanted to feel. He made me feel wanted. He also made me feel loved, and adored.
Right now Erik and Ivan didn’t matter, only James and I did.
“I love you, Harper.” James whispers into my ear before he nuzzles his face into my neck.
“I love you too, James.” I reply wholeheartedly.
I meant it too, with every fiber of my being.

Luckily a family comes for him.
Once again Izzy faces watching her best friend and her rock being pulled away from her, possibly forever this time. Her heart breaks as she realizes that her fate could land her on the streets if no one comes forward for her, too.
Izzy manages to catch the attention of the same family who had taken Avery. But it’s a first for them to take in a girl. Up until this point they had taken in boys to give them a last chance in a happy home.
To avoid any snags the oldest, Dorian, and his fiancée, Amber, decide to take Izzy in.
It’s the perfect fit. Instead of only having Avery Izzy finds herself surrounded by seven protective brothers who would do anything for her. Each of them is special in their own way but the one thing that they all understand the life of a foster child.
Unfortunately nothing can stop Izzy’s past from catching up with her. It’s something that could change her life forever. That is until fate steps in. Fate has other plans for Izzy.
Once things begin looking up for Izzy she jumps back into life in an attempt to move on and to place her past behind her once and for all.
That’s when she catches the eyes of the twins, Walker and Lynx. Walker is the brother who catches Izzy’s attention. At first she pushes him away, but once she realizes her mistake it’s too late. Walker has already moved on with another girl.
With everything stacking up against her again will Izzy be able to find her prince charming or will her past catch up with her again and snatch it all away. Will her prince be able to save her? Izzy can only hope for a happily ever after.

Release Day!!

It's Finally Here!! 
Release Day!!


 ***This short novella is intended to give this series a different point of view. This story is not required to be read between Book One and Book Two. Book Two will begin where Book One left off.***

Told from Erik's point of view.

In an instant Erik’s life comes crashing down around him. He runs after Harper only to find out that she’s attacked Clara, Ivan, and James.
Unfortunately, Clara’s dead.
Her death sends Ivan into a tailspin. He wants Harper to pay for the damage that she’s done.
Erik realizes too late what led up to this. They had pushed Harper too far. This mess was their own fault. Clara’s death was on their own hands, not Harper’s.
Of course getting Ivan to realize that takes time, time that they don’t have.
In order to keep Harper safe Erik does the only thing he can to ensure that Clara’s death doesn’t get pinned on Harper. He lies. He blames a known killer. Marcus. This lie comes with a price. The council wants him caught. They want Erik, Ivan, and James to hunt him down.
Given no other choice Erik agrees. Getting Ivan to agree to it is another story, and getting James to agree to the hunt is impossible when his attentions are only aimed at getting Harper back.
The clan breaks apart but Erik manages to pull it back together, if only for a moment.
While James runs after Harper, Erik works with Ivan to mend their relationship while they hunt down Marcus. No matter what they have to make certain the lies that they’ve spun are never uncovered.
Will they be able to capture this dangerous vampire? They will, but only if they work together.

Teaser Tuesday!!

Teaser Tuesday!!

It's that special day again. I have a surprise for everyone. I'm going to make this a Double Teaser Tuesday!!  I'm also going to make this a cover and title reveal for Book 2 of The Vampires of Linbridge.

So, this weeks teasers are going to be from Erik, Book 1.5 and (insert drum roll) Blood, Book 2 of The Vampires of Linbridge Series.

First, the teaser for Erik...

“Why are you following me?” Marcus bites out. “Did someone send you after me?”
Instead of answering him I stay silent. I wasn’t about to give away any details that he could use against us. The less he knew about us the better advantage we had.
At this point it was all we had. The element of surprise was long lost.
“Did Elizabeth finally send some hunters after me?” Marcus snorts before continuing on. “I wouldn’t put it past her. Honestly, I expected it sooner.”
He growls as he tightens his grasp on Ivan. “I’m not going to be hunted down like some animal.”
“That’s not what we’re here for. We were searching for a girl.” I insist.
“What girl?” Marcus questions with a raised brow.
“The girl that I had been watching from the stage, the same girl you decided to go after.” I clip out.
“Interesting…” Marcus replies as he places Ivan down to his feet. “She must be something if the two of you are after her.”
“She belongs to us.” Ivan snaps.
Marcus growls and easily tosses Ivan to the floor before a maniacal grin crosses his lips. “We’ll see who she belongs to.”
With that threat he disappears from view within the blink of an eye.
“Where the hell did he go?” Ivan asks in a panic as he jumps up to his feet.
“I don’t know.” I breathe out as I scan the dark room that we were standing in.
Never had I ever witnessed a vampire disappear before. It was a power that I never knew existed. To be honest it scared me, especially since he now had his sights aimed at Harper.
“We messed up big time, Ivan.” I whisper.
“I know.” He breathes out. “Let’s fix it before it ruins everything.”

****

Don't forget Erik, Book 1.5 will be released this Friday, June 23rd!!
Pre-order is available through Amazon, just follow the link below.

Next, the cover reveal and teaser for Blood, Book 2...

“Drake…” I sigh.
He reopens his eyes to look at me. “Yeah…?”
“Do you think that we’re safe here?” I ask.
“Yes. I highly doubt that anyone would expect us to stay so close to Linbridge.” He insists confidently. “They probably think that we’re miles away, not in the next town.”
I nod and then place my face into my hands while closing my eyes tightly.
“Relax, Harper.” Drake commands gently.
“That’s easier said than done.” I breathe out. “I can’t stop thinking about what I did, Drake.”
After a moment I look up at him. “I killed someone, Drake. I attacked Ivan and James. I will never forgive myself for that.”
“You couldn’t control yourself, Harper.” He replies.
“That’s what scares me the most.” I whisper. “I don’t want to lose control like that ever again.”
“As long as you practice control it won’t happen again.” Drake replies before continuing on. “You can’t beat yourself up for what happened though. They pushed you into losing control. They’re the ones who should have known better.”
“I should have stayed away from them.” I breathe out before I lie back on my bed.
“Do you really think that’s possible? You’re part of their clan, Harper. I don’t think you’ll ever truly be able to stay away from them.” Drake replies seriously.
“Probably not, but it’s not like I can go running back to them now.” I reply with a heavy sigh. “There’s no way they could ever forgive me.”
“You’re underestimating their love for you, Harper.” Drake insists.
“Drake, if they loved me they never would have brought Clara into Linbridge. They never would have chosen her over me either.” I argue.
“They messed up. I bet they realize that now.” He replies.
“Don’t you think…?” I reply sarcastically.
Drake grunts in response before he lets out a low groan. “No matter what I don’t think returning to Linbridge anytime soon would be wise.”

Tuesday Teaser!!

Tuesday Teaser!!

Just in case you missed it I've set the release date for Erik, Friday, June 23rd, 2017!!
You can pre-order this novella on Amazon. Just follow the link below.

Now, the Teaser.


“I was beginning to wonder if you were ever going to get your ass down here.” Ivan chuckles as he places some papers down onto the dining room table.
Every inch of the table was covered with photos and file folders.
“What’s all of this?” I question as I move to study one of the photos taken of Marcus closer.
“This is the path of destruction that Marcus has left behind.” Ivan answers.
“Seriously…?” I blurt in shock.
There were so many deaths, so many attacks. Whoever Marcus was he was more dangerous than I had originally thought.
“He’s bloodthirsty, Erik.” Ivan stresses. “He lives for killing vampires.”
“I see that.” I breathe out.
“Do we know who changed him?” I question as I look through a few of the papers within a folder.
“All the council has disclosed is that it was a vampire passing through Linbridge. Nothing else is said about it in the paperwork and no one else has looked into it any deeper.” Ivan replies.
I nod and then glance up at him. “I have a feeling that one of the council members changed him.”
“Who do you think it was? Elizabeth?” Ivan pushes.
“That’s exactly who I think it was.” I reply. “I think that’s why she basically stated that she wouldn’t mind him being killed instead of captured.”
“What are we going to do about that?” Ivan asks.
“Nothing…” I answer simply.
Ivan opens his mouth to argue but he stops before a single word is uttered. Even he knew there wasn’t anything to be done or said about Elizabeth. She ruled this town and if we tried to defy her we would pay dearly.
After a few moments Ivan sighs roughly. “This sucks.”
“I know.” I agree.
“Do you think that Harper is safe out there with this guy roaming around?” Ivan questions softly.
“Honestly…I don’t know.” I answer truthfully.
Harper was new at being a vampire and so was Drake. Neither of them would be prepared to face anything like this. I highly doubted they knew how to defend themselves.
“We have to find her.” Ivan stresses.
