Throwback Thursday!!

I'm getting back on track so it's time for another throwback. This week I want to shine a little light on my Eden One Series. It's a completed series of four books. It's also a science fiction tale with lots of twists and turns. This series is one of my absolute favorites. I look forward to rereading it every year. I hope you'll give it a chance. I'm sure you'll love it as much as others have.

Links to purchase this series are below each book.

****

Book One

What do we do when the world as we know it ends? What will we do to survive? Only we can decide the answers to those questions.
Now, fast forward 237 years into the future.
Earth is no longer livable, and only seven space stations hold the keys to our future.
Each station has its own special reasons, and each has a certain group that will be able to travel to any new planets they find and begin life anew.
The stations consist of the farmers, the engineers, the scientists, the breeders, the doctors, the military, and the alphas, or also known as the future leaders.
Mackenzie was lucky enough to be born on the military station and is quickly following in her father’s footsteps to becoming a leader of her very own squad, a squad that would someday be sent down to a whole new world.
They were the future.
As their future soon becomes reality Mackenzie and her team are tested to their limits. She has to fight her emotions and do what's best for everyone, but will it be enough?
Will it keep them all alive when they finally reach the ground? And when a red devil threatens what’s between Cash and her, will Kenzie lose him?
On this lost planet, anything can happen.
Things aren't always what they seem.
One second Mac finds herself with friends and the next she’s being chased down by enemies.
Will she be able to survive, or will she have to make the ultimate sacrifice in order to ensure her team’s future?

Fox’s whole life has been turned upside down, and all because of one tiny human girl and her team. He finds himself willing to do anything for her, even if it’s the last thing he wants to do.
When one of her teammates needs help, Fox has no choice but to leave her behind, but saving Grey ends up being more than either Fox or Riker bargained for.
Fox quickly finds himself under attack by his own people.
It ends up being him and Cash against them all.
Barely surviving they somehow manage to escape, but now they have an even bigger issue to deal with. Mackenzie has been taken. But the question is who took her and why.
They get their answer when they return to the spot where Fox had left her last.
The Gealtach, the most feared beings on the planet, were after her. But she wasn't being chased by just any Gealtach. She was being tracked by hunters.
Now, both Cash and Fox have hard decisions to make, but will they make the correct ones?
Will they be able to save the girl that they both love? Or will they choose the wrong path and lose her forever.

Book Two

Still in Aden’s grasp, Kenzie begs for an end to his torture. Every part of her hurts, including her heart.

She gives up and gives into wanting everything to just end. All she wants is to escape the nightmare.
Day after day, hour after slow hour Aden continues to ask the same question. Where is he? But Kenzie doesn’t even know who Aden is referring to.
When her question is finally answered, she knows that she must keep his secret.
Death whispers her name, but Aden won’t allow it and neither will an unexpected Gealtach friend, Dax.
What happens will change Mac’s future forever. But will Fox still want her this way?
Being something not quite human is a major change for Kenzie. Then again, being a mix of three different beings has its own complications, especially since no one has ever been mixed up like this before.
With a bond between both Dax and Fox, Kenzie has to choose.
Before she has a chance to escape it all, Aden yet again interrupts her life. He takes everyone away from her.
When everything in her life shatters into pieces, one unlikely being comes to help.
Storm, Fox’s brother, quickly allies with Kenzie even though she has fears of his powers. And for good reason; he’s dangerous, very dangerous.
Both Storm and Kenzie begin planning on how to get his brother and her team back. Before they get a chance to put their plan into action, they are forced to flee.
Instead of just going somewhere safe on Eden One, Mac transports them to the space station.
Everything changes from there, but those changes won’t come without a cost.
There will be blood.
There will be death.
And Kenzie’s world will take yet another turn.

After finally getting free from the cell on the human’s space station, Storm finds out that Kenzie wasn't the one who had rescued him.
It was Dax that had saved him.
Kenzie, on the other hand, had other things going on.
She had gone mad.
Without hesitating Storm throws himself into a new mission along with Dax.
He needed to find her and bring her back, but first, he had to bring back his dead brother, Fox. With his help, they could fix Dax and Kenzie’s broken bond.
In order to bring Fox back from death’s door Storm first needs to find his long-lost brothers, Leaf, the leader of the wolvetts, and their other brother Ronan.
Of course finding them would be the easy part. Talking them into helping him bring back a brother that hadn’t been so nice, that was going to be the hardest part.
Will it be enough though? Together can they save Kenzie?

Book Three

Waking up in a burned out room once was strange enough for Kenzie, but to wake up in the same place over and over again was too much.
At first, everything appeared normal, or at least as normal got for Kenzie.
When it quickly turns into a nightmare, Kenzie finds herself thrown into making a major decision. Who will she choose? Will she go for this new Duine, Leaf?
Her maddening dream ends up taking away that decision for her. She decides on Leaf; he was supposed to be her true mate after all.
Her heart was still breaking for Dax though, and the pull between them just wouldn't fade away.
When that pull becomes too much, Kenzie gives into it and explores it more with Dax while Leaf is away gathering fighters to fight in their upcoming battle.
But when Leaf returns and finds them in a compromising position he does something drastic. Ronan thankfully sees through Leaf’s lies. He saves Kenzie.
As all of Leaf’s lies come unraveled, their group finds themselves under attack by the enemy. Leaf had never gotten the reinforcements. He had brought Aden’s army down on their heads.
When everything seems so hopeless Shade comes through and brings along the much-needed army that Kenzie needs to succeed in the war that had begun.
The new plan now wasn't to fight on the ground.
No, she wants to take over the sky above.
Using her powers and Dax’s combined they transport their entire army onto Kenzie’s old home, the military station.
Getting to the station is the easy part. The hard part is the fight they have ahead of them. It's made even worse when they lose the element of surprise.
The Humans gain the upper hand on the Gealtach.
The war was quickly being lost even though everyone around her was telling her otherwise. They were losing even though they couldn’t afford to lose. Kenzie wouldn’t allow that to happen.

Dax could kick his own ass for letting Kenzie walk into danger like he had. It was stupid to let her make such a terrible decision, but it was for a good cause.
Meanwhile, he’s left with a battle that he had to win. It was a battle he had to win in order to get her back.
The hardest fight wasn't the one against the humans. It was the one raging inside of him to free Kenzie. His heart wanted to rescue her from the horrible things he had been forced to witness through her eyes.
There just wasn't a way to do that without compromising the mission he had on the space station. There were too many of his Gealtach brothers counting on him to lead.
With his emotions held at bay, things become clear. They would win this war with the humans on the space station, but not without a high cost.
Many would die in the name of freedom.

Book Four

Stuck in Aden's house of horrors Kenzie is losing all hope.
She hasn’t felt anything from Dax, and she hasn’t been able to reach him in any way through their connection. It’s like he had built up a brick wall.
Despair takes over.
Fear of dying in that horrid place fills her mind. Then again, maybe death wouldn’t be so bad. It couldn’t be any worse than losing Dax altogether.
Just when Kenzie doesn’t think she can handle any more trauma, Aden waltzes in with terrifying news.
Dax is dead.
It’s her worst fear confirmed. But how; how could he be dead while she’s still alive. It all becomes clear once the lies are revealed, and the real truths come out.
Dax isn’t dead, far from it actually. He’s on a mission to save his mate. He was coming for her and the others.
Finally, there is hope.
But how would Dax respond to knowing that Kenzie was pregnant? And last but not least, would she have to choose between Dax and Fox again. Who would she pick, the father of her baby or the mate that had stolen her heart?

The battle had already begun, but with the minor mishap of having all of his warriors spread apart, Dax had no choice but to retreat and regroup.
Now that they are back together as one he has to return. Aden must die, and the compound must be destroyed.
Kenzie has her own battles going on when Dax leaves to finish what he had started. The baby was pushing primal urges.
They were also affecting Dax while he was in the middle of his battles, which makes for a dangerous combination.
The urges and emotions that Dax feels from Kenzie only drive his hatred for her child higher. He doesn’t like the fact that it isn’t his, but he wouldn’t dare tell her that.
Kenzie knows how Dax feels though, their connection doesn’t allow for secrets to be kept.
Only time will tell if Dax will come around.
Then again, this could be the one thing that will split them up and force them to go their separate ways.
The future is yet to be written.

They had won the war with Aden, and things seemed to finally be going their way.
Dax was still a little distant, but it was something that Kenzie thought they could overcome.
It isn’t until Dax tells her to leave that it hits Kenzie. Maybe things couldn’t work between them.
The baby growing inside her wasn’t something that Dax could easily get over. Leaving Dax was the only thing she could do, but it would break her heart in the process.
The only problem she has is where she should go, and who would keep her safe?
There was one person still out there who cared for her, loved her, and who could be a father figure for her unborn child.
And that’s where she was going to go.
Before she can get anywhere the baby decides now is the time to be born, and once again Kenzie’s life is thrown off course.
It does bring Dax back but having this new powerful child brings other dangers.
Only time will tell if they will be able to escape.
And only love can conquer all.

Tuesday Teaser

Tuesday Teaser!!

Today's teaser comes from the story that I am currently working on, Blood Moon, Book two in the Love and Blood Series. Since I am working on this through #NaNoWriMo the story is getting done quickly. I haven't had a chance to really do any editing so please bear with me. On another note you also get to see the new cover. So, you get a teaser and a cover reveal all wrapped into one.

Anyway, here it is the second part the the story that many of you have loved.

Enjoy!!

“You need to sleep, Dominick.” I laugh as he nuzzles his face against the back of my neck. “It’s going to be night soon and you’ll be tired when you have to leave.”
“I’ll be fine.” He insists.
I sigh softly while reaching my hand up to stroke my fingers through Nix’s hair beside me.
He was sound asleep along with Kane.
“I’m kind of jealous of the connection that you have with him.” Dominick states softly as he pushes himself up to look over my shoulder.
“There’s no reason to be jealous.” I insist. “Our connection goes so much deeper.”
“Yes, it does but it doesn’t compare to what you have with him.” Dominick argues lightly.
“Either way I still love you both equally.” I reply as I turn to look up at Dominick. “I love you, I love Kane, and I love Nix. Each of you has a part of my heart.”
“You should tell them that. Nix needs to hear you say those words to him.” Dom stresses.
“I will when the time is right.” I reply with a soft sigh.
A moment of silence passes by as Dominick tenderly touches my cheek.
He sighs. “I don’t want to leave you.”
“I don’t want you to go either.” I reply.
“We won’t be gone long.” He promises. “The last war that I fought with the humans didn’t last long. The humans always severely underestimate what we’re capable of.”
“All it takes is a good show of force and they’ll retreat.” He adds confidently.
“After what my father did to me do you really believe that it will still be that easy?” I question.
“I don’t know, but at least we know what we’re up against.” He replies.
He had a point. They weren’t going into this fight blindly but there was no telling what other secrets that my father had that could be used against a supernatural army.
I couldn’t help but fear that I would lose one of them in this battle.
“You’re not going to lose anyone.” Dominick replies before glancing at Kane and Nix. “I will do whatever it takes to keep them safe for you.”
“Make sure you keep Nick safe for Tinsley too.” I reply.
He nods. “I was already planning to do that.”
Without warning Nix turns on his side before reaching out for me. He pulls me away from Dominick and snuggly against his body.
I laugh lightly as he begins purring.
Dominick shakes his head in amusement. “What are we going to do with both a dog and cat?”
I shrug while grinning. “I don’t know but we’ve already given them a home. They’re ours now no matter what happens.”
He snorts. “You are prefect.”
After a moment I pat the bed beside me. “Sleep, Dom.”
He nods and then lies down before closing his eyes. I watch him as his chest stops rising and falling as he quickly falls into a deep sleep.
Moments later I close my eyes before the darkness of sleep pulls me into its depths.

Tuesday Teaser for Brave!!

Tuesday Teaser!!


Today's teaser is from Brave, Book 4 in The Onyx Wolves Series. This bit is after Parker meets Jake's brothers Kane, Max, Flynn, Dane, Larik, and Gavin, who are also shape-shifting bears. Parker already met Kane briefly in Book 3 but Kane has more of a presence in this book. I'm nearly finished writing this book so watch closely for more teasers and a release date. Enjoy!!

****

We need to go, now.” Kane stresses as he runs into my room with me and Jake.
I shove the remaining clothes into my bag before turning towards Kane as Jake grabs my other bag from the bed.
“We’re ready.” I reply.
“Good, the rest of your pack are in the truck with my brothers.” Kane replies.
“Lucas…?” I whisper.
“He’s with your silver wolf. He hasn’t let go of him.” Kane replies.
I nod and then glance around at my room before moving forward. Together Kane, Jake, and I run downstairs before we exit the house.
I run towards the garage and grab the keys to my bike and then to my jeep.
“You can take the jeep, Kane.” I state while tossing him the keys. “Jake and I will take my bike.”
Without saying a word Kane grabs my bags from me and Jake before jumping into the jeep while Jake climbs onto my bike. I slip on behind him and then hand him the keys.
The engine roars to life before Jake backs us out of the garage.
Kane stops the jeep near his truck where the others were. Dane, Gavin, and Larik jump out of the truck before getting into the jeep.
Seconds later we take off down the driveway.
The gate opens at an agonizingly slow pace but once it’s open we ride through.
My heart beats wildly in my chest as I tighten my grasp around Jake’s waist as he speeds down the roads, following the jeep and truck.
We don’t make it far before two bikes join us.
They had hunters in full gear riding them.
“Jake…” I stress nervously as they gain ground on us.
“Do you trust me?” Jake asks.
“Yes.” I reply quickly.
He grunts and then revs the bike to go faster. He pulls next to the truck and then glances over to Flynn and Max in the back of the truck.
“I want you to jump, Parker.” Jake states loudly.
Without hesitating I move on the back of the bike. I stand up and then wait for Flynn to hold his hands out towards me.
“Now, Parker…” Jake commands as he moves closer to the truck.
I leap and grab for Flynn.
He manages to grab me before pulling me into the back of the truck. He holds onto me tightly as Jake slows down. Once he’s next to the jeep he moves to stand up on the bike.
Dane reaches out for him and Jake leaps towards the jeep.
My heart nearly skips a beat as he grabs hold of the jeep’s side. He slips and nearly falls but Dane manages to pull him inside.
The bike wobbles for a brief moment before rolling. The hunters behind it don’t get the chance to swerve out of the way as my bike comes their way.
In seconds they hit the road causing pieces of twisted metal and shattered plastic to skid across the road along with the four bodies of the hunters.
“Damn…” Flynn whispers as I bury my face against his chest.
Even though they had been hell-bent on killing us I still didn’t like the thought of taking a life.
There was no way they could have survived a wreck like that and if they had then they were in one hell of a world of hurt.
After a few moments Flynn pushes me to sit down between him and Max.
“You’ve got guts, Wolf.” Flynn states. “I’ll give you that.”
I remain quiet as I watch Jake now sitting in the passenger seat of the jeep behind us.
He gives me a reassuring smile while Flynn wraps his arm around my shoulders.
“Jake is tougher than you think, Sweetheart. That little jump was nothing for him.” Flynn states before snorting. “I imagine that you taking that leap scared him more than anything.”
“His jump scared me.” I reply.
“You really care about him, don’t you?” Flynn replies.
“I do.” I answer honestly.
Even though everything between me and Jake wasn’t real we had become close. I cared about him and the way that he was looking at me now said that he cared about me too.
