Sneak preview

Emerald’s Ring

A snippet of a work in progress

Harmonia Shae kept close to the wooded cliffs along the mountainside of Sandovia where she hoped to reach the portal without detection. She hid among the large white and red blossoms of the cliffrose flower and the sagebrush covering the desert terrain.

Her destination and means of escape was the elliptical portal into the human realm, which shimmered at the opening of the cave on the west side of the tallest oak tree. Another thousand feet and she’d be in Sedona.

An eerie sensation prickled the hairs on Harmonia’s neck. A nauseating stench filled her nostrils. Only one terrestrial in their realm carried the odor of rotten egg and damp dirt. Searching the clumps of trees, a troll emerged from the underground tunnel parallel to her right. His beady laser ray eyes followed her as she sprinted to a nearby Jupiter tree.

Along the cliffs ravine the troll’s heavy body stayed in lock step watching her like a predator stalking his prey. Taking a moment and a deep calming breath, she scanned his energy field. Taking hold of the Jupiter’s heavy limb, she pulled herself onto her feet and without fear made  eye contact. His hard gaze watched but made no aggressive movements.

Harmonia gave the area a once-over before her eyes returned to the Troll.  He pointed toward the mountains edge right as two djinn shifters from her stepmother’s harem left the caves’ entrance. With each ticking minute her chance of escape might be foiled.

Tilion warned her under no circumstance was she to teleport into the human realm, she must enter through the portal.

She needed to distract her opponents and spotted a patch of prickly cacti between the djinn guards. One of her gifts she’d inherited from her grandfather was the ability to channel water. With a deep breath, she cleared her mind concentrating on the molecules and cells within the plant forcing the water inside the cacti to push to the surface and explode. Hundreds of thorny spikes showered down upon the two djinn.

Harmonia wasted no time and crouched low to the ground.  A large roar echoed from the ravine and the troll sounded his war cry. The djinn took after him.

She sprinted the last fifty feet and ran through the cave opening not slowing down until she was through the oval portal and on the other side of the realm.

She emerged inside an old tool shed the only light the residue of her energy field. She’d made it. Her heart pounded like an endless roll of thunder on a stormy night. The troll, a fatal feeling of doom filled her soul.

Writer’s Wednesday

It’s nice to have a day off in the middle of the week. But it’s so important we honor and remember why we celebrate this day. Thanks to all the people who serve and keep our country safe. Faerie’s Ring release party was fun and I enjoyed talking with all who came to offer me support. Here is a teaser excerpt.

Taking a deep, pained breath, Rafe closed his eyes and attempted one last time to merge with her auric energy. All was dark. The hollowness in his body grew strong. He’d die without her. Her eyes were vacant. She’d retreated to the dense fog of her mind, leaving him alone. Alone, unable to communicate, he, the Keeper of Dreams was unable to salvage his own dream. Until now, he hadn’t any real dreams. Always the warrior and protector of the sidhe Queen, but now he wanted her, his mate.

He pulled the covers up to her chin and used a sleeping spell to help her rest. As he shut the bedroom door, Rafe struggled to reign in his anger.

Tom cradled Peter’s head in his lap and his gnarled fingers soothed the boy’s cheeks, while Mab and Tristan healed the broken bone.

Rafe wondered if Peter’s mental state would survive the torture and death of his father. Pushing past his limits, he found the strength and joined the others in the healing of Peter’s body. He gave Peter a dream, a dream of roving seas and animals. The animals he’d saved in the fire.

The boy’s eyes moved beneath his closed lids and a smile formed on his lips.

Dourine joined Rafe and together, they searched the light in his heart.

“The daemon failed in destroying his goodness, his pure heart,” Dourine said.

A cold shutter of wickedness seeped into Rafe’s thoughts and he looked to Dourine. “The daemon buried in the sweat lodge still lives. His words still have the power to manipulate one’s mind.”

Tom placed a talisman around Peter’s neck. “Archangel Metatron will protect the boy. He refuses to allow his brother to destroy one so pure.”

“If we survive, he’ll grow into a great leader of men,” Rafe said, grateful.

It was a strong omen that a leader of humans laid among them.

Tristan lifted the boy and opened the light pools and summoned the energy trod. “Jason will stay with him in Gaston, until the daemon is fed to the mouth of the burning fire, and the flame of the iris reignites.” He closed the pool of light, taking Peter to safety.

Bad Boys Wanted

Title: Bad Boys Wanted, an erotic romance anthology

Author: Various

Publisher: Roane Publishing

Release Date: October 21, 2015

Keywords: Erotic, Romance, BDSM, Bondage, Alpha Males, Domination / Submission, Sex Toys

Description:  When they’re bad, they’re oh so good. This collection of six steamy erotic tales featuring the best of the bad boys is sure to leave you wanting more.

Unrepentant  –  Lila Shaw

Lucky Lotto winner Amy Burns has had enough of family members begging for handouts. With her millions safely hidden from the general public’s knowledge by way of an anonymous trust fund, she’s moved west to find a new beginning. She’s also found Jazz, a taciturn employee at her gym she can’t seem to stay away from.Only problem? He’s an ex-convict. Can Amy trust the former thief with her heart, especially after her relentless step-brother discovers her whereabouts and threatens to expose her secret, or might an unrepentant bad boy be the real winning ticket?

Over the Edge  –  Stella Berkley

Nothing short of a lobotomy could make Roman King forget Sloane Holliwell—part angel, part devil, and all his. If only she wasn’t the love of his best friend’s life. Even though they’re broken up, Roman would never hurt his brother from another mother that way.

Sloane has been self-destructing since her darkest fantasy, Roman, cut her out of his life. When he finds her bruised at a bar, he saves her from yet another boyfriend disaster. But he still won’t claim her despite their obvious attraction.

Instead, he offers to teacher her how to be a submissive, so he can find her a master that will take care of her. Once he gets her in the playroom, though, he discovers Sloane is playing games of her own.

Death’s Angel  –  Kastil Eavenshade

Four years ago, Constantine lost the only woman he ever loved. Now the incubus is culling the responsible vampire brood’s food source. One by one he steals the souls of the blood sucker’s familiars to turn the human population against his enemy. Blinded by vengeance, he makes the one mistake that could cost him the retribution he seeks.

Half-werewolf, Indira is thrust in the hands of the vampires to maintain peace amongst the clans. Instead of being an ambassador, she becomes a prisoner and forgotten by her pack. When the vampires bring a mysterious man trussed into their dungeons, he stirs something inside long since buried. Sexy and beyond anything she’s dealt with, her beating heart yearns to sacrifice her soul for one taste of Constantine.

In the throes of revenge, can the light of one angel tame a beast bred in hell?

Finding Forever  –  Lynn Burke

Samantha likes to bang a guy’s headboard and take off long before he bangs up her heart. Temptation returns in the form of a Zeus-like, tattooed hunk, the man whose first kiss roused her teenage hormones. His arrival carries the promise for more, but Sam’s determination to enjoy a taste–or two–without risking her heart could cost her the chance at finding forever.

Temptations of the Cage  –  R. Brennan

While she’s never considered herself a submissive, Katrina Norton has always had a bit of a pain fetish, so when the opportunity to work at one of the city’s most popular BDSM clubs presents itself, she decides it’s the perfect way to indulge her darker desires and earn enough money to pay for the expensive medications her ailing grandmother requires.

But when she meets handsome club owner, Damien Michaels, Trina has to remind herself he’s a potential boss, and off limits. Certainly not someone she should be imagining kneeling before and begging for just a taste of what’s hiding beneath his expensive tailored suit.

If she could just get her traitorous body to stick to the plan.

Without Words by Lolly Tova

y McPhee dreads attending her high school reunion, but she’s willing to brave her childhood tormentors to see the bad boy she sat beside everyday on the school bus. Though they never exchanged a word, a decade later, he still owns her heart, and she’s determined to find out if the connection she felt to him all those years ago was a shared experience.

Ollie Ashwood, lead singer of the successful indie band Infraction, is still every inch a trouble maker, but his days of partying and womanizing are over. He’s finally ready to claim the only girl he ever cared enough about not to sweet talk into his arms. Playing a set at his school reunion seems the perfect ploy to draw Ivy out and tell her she’s the woman of his dreams.

Any chance of the two alumni discovering the depths of their feelings for one another is shattered by a scheming ex-student. Only revelations about the past can get Ollie and Ivy back on the right track, but Ollie must first persuade Ivy to bear her bully’s teasing long enough to listen.

When her Privateer father continually refuses to allow his only daughter to sail, Ellie defies him, disguises herself as a boy, and goes in search of a captain who will give her a chance to prove her worth.

Daniel goes in search of a job and a sense of normalcy, earning himself a position aboard Captain Winter’s ship, The Siren’s Call.

Both experts in deception, they must find a way to trust each other in order to quell the raging storm between them, and have any hope of hunting down the captain’s killer.

Keywords: Summer, Beach, Ocean, romance, contemporary, Summertime Romance, short stories

Description: Summertime love is always the sweetest. These eight sweet tales of summer romance are the perfect companion for a day at the lake or the beach.

Truly Paradise – Michelle Ziegler

Waiting for the right one can be torture.
Too bad for Hailey, impatience got the best of her. Finding Mr. Right in time for a destination wedding couldn’t happen fast enough. Instead of listening to reason, or rather her friends, she’s stuck in paradise alone, again. Nothing ruins a tropical paradise faster than catching your date with another woman.Justin’s ready for a change. He’s been caught up in his own success for too long and is looking to finally settle down. Timing is everything and his cousins wedding is the perfect start of his new life. His luck is changing with the captivating mystery woman on the beach.  Now all he has to do is find her, before he agrees to his family’s match making plot.

Ocean Dust – Laurie Treacy

Carly Dawson, 18, is facing her last summer before leaving for college, all alone. Still nursing a broken heart over the loss of her boyfriend, Chase Montgomery, she wants the next two months to be different. A shocking unexpected visitor one night just may offer Carly the excitement she seeks. Her only decision is whether or not to choose what this visitor offers her.

The Beach Rose – Christa MacDonald

Annie Thomas can’t believe her good luck when she inherits the family’s beach house in Oceanside Maine.  It’s one of the few places she was truly happy so she sells everything she owns, quits her job, and moves in hoping that her new business, The Beach Rose, will bring in enough money in its first season to let her live up there year round.  But on her first day things aren’t as easy or as simple as she’d hoped.  To cap it off she discovers that her best new client is actually the boy she had a huge teenage crush on.  So much for rekindling a summer romance.

For Craig, Annie was everything he wanted when he was a geeky seventeen year-old.  Now that he’s pushing forty and the owner of half the real estate in town, he wants another shot at convincing her that he’s everything she needs.  He didn’t count on her owning the business he just signed a contract with though.  Craig has to find a way to help Annie’s struggling business without her knowing it since anything else would push her further away and that’s the last thing he wants.

Together they may get a second chance for a summer romance.

When the Sea Swallows the Sun – Kim Strattford

A trip to Clearwater Beach was supposed to be a fun escape from the D.C. rat race for Emma and her boyfriend Sam.  Until Sam dumped her, leaving her with a ticket she was too cheap not to use and a resolution to enjoy her time in the sun and get over him.  A plan that sputters when Sam’s good friend Rick shows up.  Rick, who’s never seemed to approve of her for reasons she’s never understood.  Rick, who seems to think he has license to bug her just because he bought Sam’s ticket.  Rick, who may be a much nicer guy than she ever realized, and who might have a very good reason for not thinking much of her.  Can they make peace in the beautiful Florida sun and surf?  Peace—or maybe more?

All she needs to do is understand what tore them apart in the first place. But, overcoming this is harder than it seems. Will she be strong enough to find her way back to him?

Above Reproach – Sheryl Winters
