UPCOMING RELEASES

Blood of the Gods (The Vampire from Hell Part 5) Cover Designs by Cora Graphics

In the fifth installment of the Vampire from Hell series, it’s open season on the Ancient Council.  Angels and gods alike are being systematically wiped out.  Only one person can save them, the vampire from Hell.

About Vampire Tears (A Collection of Poetry)

This first collection of poetry by author Ally Thomas focuses on paranormal creatures, primarily vampires. Think of it as if you are walking through the mind of a vampire. You witness their confessions, their fears, their trepidations, their doubts, and their tears. Many of the thirty poems, written in free verse, are ‘dark poetry’ and each shares a vampire’s heart and soul filled with regret, longing, perhaps anger or rage, and some of quiet desperation left unspoken.

Happy Friday! We’re putting on our cowboy hat today for Author Catherine Wolffe!

Today > Friday, March 7th, Catherine is releasing the second book in her western romance series, The Loflin Legacy. Join us TONIGHT for the Facebook event for Casey’s Gunslinger. Click here or on the banner below.

Usually I read paranormal fiction. I’m not one to pick up a western romance, but I can definitely say after reading an advance copy of Casey’s Gunslinger I’m enjoying the western world and romances created by Catherine Wolffe.

About Casey’s Gunslinger

When Casey St. Clair returns to Tyler to locate her birth father, she seeks the help of the town’s attorney, the wickedly handsome, Charles Harrison. Abandoned as a baby by the town’s most influential man, Earl Loflin, Casey’s plan includes going to any length to shame the man who sired her. Charles sees her plan as a foolhardy attempt at revenge. He’ll do his best to protect her without resorting to the methods of his past. But when his past comes calling and Casey walks blindly into a trap, he’s the only man who can save her and any future they have together. Casey’s Gunslinger is the second book in the Loflin Legacy series. Learn more at www.catherinewolffe.com

Excerpt

He moved toward her.  “Casey, something’s wrong.  I want you to tell me, did he do or say something to upset you?”

The stern, protective quality was there in his question now.  Oh, for a father who truly cared.  Still unable to meet his gaze, she shook her head.  “I said no.  What more do you want?”  With the last question, she managed to yank free, putting her desk between them.

Charles rounded the oak slab smoothly, gripping her forearm before turning her to face him.  “I want you to tell me everything.  For example, what he said, the questions he asked and the answers you gave him.  I’m your attorney.  Talk to me.  I’m here to help.”

His eyebrows lifted in what could only be described as sympathy.  Damn him!  She didn’t want his sympathy.  Struggling against growing madder by the second, Casey yelped when he pulled her up on her toes, kissing her solid on the mouth.  Unable to get free, she fisted her hands, beating on his chest until he gathered her closer, pinning her body next to his.

“Easy, I won’t bite.”  He buried his face in her nap.  “Um, you smell good.”

Shocked, Casey squirmed to no avail.

“I’m not letting go until you tell me what went on here in my absence.  Understood?”  Now his brows drew together in a benevolent interrogation of sorts.  How did she get herself into these predicaments?  With as much patience as she could muster, she went through the whole ordeal.  “Now, are you satisfied?”

“No, I’m not.”  Pausing to lean in, Charles captured her mouth again, only this time, he took his time, lingering over every inch of her lips.  He slanted his mouth against hers, shifting to taste her with his tongue.  “Do you always protest a man’s attentions so violently?”

Stiffening in his arms, she squeaked when he lazily ran his hand up and down her back, ending possessively on her rear.

“Ah, you’re so damn sexy.”  The groan, which rumbled from deep in his throat, spoke of desire and untold pleasure.

Terrorists take over the ship and hold the passengers for ransom, Marc and the other SEALs are the only ones who can stop the plot. Will Marc’s actions be enough to save Sophia or will he have to sacrifice himself to save the woman he loves?

EXCERPT:

Marc started to stand, but she stopped him with her hand on his forearm.  He did sit back down, but he crossed his massive arms in front of his chest, leaning back into the couch and looking the opposite direction, away from her.

“I know none of this makes sense. Not sure I do either. I thought that—well I just thought a little night of anonymous sex with no strings would be something—and this is a totally selfish thing here, I admit it—I thought I could just have…” This was going to be much more difficult than she’d planned. Everything she wanted to say wasn’t right. “I just wanted one more night being single, being free to choose, being with someone without it being complicated. And I’m sorry. I realize now that that was a huge mistake.”

His passive, hulking frame and dispassionate stare into the distance broke her heart.

“Please Marc, look at me.” He did, but his eyebrows were raised, his eyes contained the look of someone who thought she was full of crap. She mustered her courage and added, looking into his sky blue eyes, those eyes she’d gotten lost in, eyes she would remember forever, “I am truly sorry. I am not a good person at all. I did this without any regard for your feelings.”

Their eyes did connect, and for a second she could see the hurt there, a little dream in his heart that was dying too, just as hers was. Instinct told her to reach over and kiss him, hug him, tell him how sorry she was for her behavior, but she knew that was the wrong way to handle it. As much as she wanted to touch him and let him know how awful she felt, she needed to keep her distance.

Just tell him the truth and get out.

            Marc hadn’t dropped his eyes. He was searching for something in her face she hoped didn’t show up. He was looking for evidence she cared for him. Wouldn’t it be wiser to show coldness? Let him understand there was no future between them?

But was that the truth? Really the truth? Did all this happen because of her niggling doubts about Ricardo and the life she would have with him in Brazil? If she were certain of her decision to marry him, would the night with Marc have happened? She honestly didn’t know the answer to that.

“It was the most beautiful afternoon I’ve spent in my entire life. I will never forget it. Never, Marc,” she said.

His crooked smile with the dimple on the right side of his full lips was sexy as hell, and changed the mask of his face.

“It was a pretty incredible afternoon, but hey, no worries, Sophia. I’m not looking to get hooked up with anyone. I’m getting ready to deploy. This is just a little R and R before we go. It kind of worked, in a sick sense of the word.” He looked at his palms.

She hadn’t expected that.

“You aren’t angry?”

“For an afternoon of the best sex of my life? Fuck no.”

It was a nice thing to say, but she felt the blunt force of a verbal slap. “I think it was more than that, is what I’m trying to say,” she said, her voice low and husky.

Marc shot up, put his hands in his cargo shorts. “I’m glad. While you’re working your way through the cruise ship males, I’ll be having beers with my buds and probably swearing off Italian girls for awhile.” He began to walk out of the bar.

She had to do something. She ran and stood in front of him, to stop him.

“Wait a minute. What I want to say is that it wasn’t just a hookup. I mean it started that way, but it became more, I guess is what I’m saying.”

“Well, that’s fine, honey. And if you get that itch again, I’ll scratch it. No worries. I’m not going to get pissed off and ruin another good time.” His brilliant white teeth and blue eyes melted her bones.

“So it wasn’t—“

“You don’t have the right to that privileged information, honey. You’re engaged to someone else. I don’t gotta tell you anything about me or how I feel about anything, remember? But if you want another anonymous hookup, I’m not going anywhere. We’ve got like twenty days together. We’ve already proven we can let our bodies do the talking since the words seem to get in the way.”

He left the bar. She felt her stomach drop to her ankles.

It wasn’t easy to put it out of her mind, the look on his face as he turned, bowed slightly and walked out of her life. She’d already cried for him once as she was walking away from him in the Piazza. She’d left a part of her with him that day, and now today he took away another piece as he walked down the marble foyer, pushed the up button and left in the elevator.
