EXCERPT Featuring Rayea and Blick
Meet Rayea, the vampire from Hell and her best friend, Blick. After first meeting Blick as a hellhound in Hell who rescued her, she works at becoming comfortable with his human side. This excerpt is from The Vampire from Hell: A Vampire Among Angels (Part 2).
“Have you been up all night…again?”
Blick found me on the terrace, gazing at the ocean. It was the break of dawn, and he was headed out for another day of training. I wanted to ask him if he was okay with my missing a lot of our martial arts practice sessions, but I forgot the question when I saw him. I feared my sleep deprivation was causing me to hallucinate, and then I remembered Blick’s change.
Since arriving at the House of G, Blick had transformed from his Lycan-Underworld-movie look to that of a tall, unassuming man with chiseled facial features and gleaming gold eyes.
“I can’t get used to your shift into human form. Your goatee is very nice. You are handsome for a hellhound, you know?”
“Is that a sense of humor I detect today?” he replied, ignoring my observation. He was confident and determined standing there in his workout clothes which consisted of a bright white T-shirt clinging to his tanned lean frame, a pair of royal-blue gym shorts, and white sneakers. The wind from the sea pushed a few wisps of his jet black hair into his eyes and he brushed them aside.
Hearing the love in his soft baritone voice was music to my ears. Since we didn’t need to be secretive anymore, we had fallen out of the habit of talking to each other telepathically.
“What about the nightmares?” he asked.
Tears rose in my eyes. I gritted my teeth and fought to compose myself, so I didn’t burst out crying like a little girl in front of him. “Ongoing,” I muttered. “Anytime I try to sleep, I see Father and Stephanie turn into monstrous snakes and chase after me.” Because I hadn’t been able to sleep for weeks, my life consisted of three activities: wandering around Blick’s home, surfing the internet on my computer, or hanging out on the terrace (usually at night).
He nodded and placed his hand on my forehead, checking my body temperature. “You’re burning up,” he insisted.
“I think that’s just my natural temperature now.” I smiled up at him weakly. The seven-foot hellhound I had raised from a pup in Hell was actually a seven-foot shapeshifting angel who was trying his best to take care of me. Lately, I had marveled at his human appearance especially when he was fussing over why my health was steadily declining. Blick wasn’t the only one worried about me. I was too.
“A friend is coming by later with some supplements. Will you answer the door this time, please?” he asked.
We stood on the terrace of his home in silence for a few moments, watching the waves. About eight two-story properties of high ranking angels including Blick’s home lined a sandy white beach nestled in a cove. His home was in the center of the arch-shaped cove, and I could look out from the terrace on the second floor and see the ocean. Towards the east, the ocean stretched out to what seemed like infinity. It was more beautiful than I’d imagined oceans could be. Now in the morning sunlight, the water glistened and danced, merging into hues of light blue and green. Were the oceans on Earth this blue? One day, I thought to myself, one day I’ll find out.
My 2nd Giveaway – Download The Vampire from Hell: The Beginning – Part One (FOR FREE)
According to Rayea, the oldest daughter of Satan, the origin of vampires started in Hell, and it started with her. Here’s her story about how it all began. Rayea isn’t daddy’s little girl, even if he is the most powerful fallen angel around. He wants her to take an active role in the family business. But she’s not interested in his schemes for world domination. Instead she wants to spend her time shopping on the Internet, rescuing humans from a horrific eternity, and practicing martial arts with her seven foot hellhound. Then one day everything changes.

My 3rd Giveaway
Young Adult Romance
Snag this beginning part of a new series I’ll be releasing next year.
For some, love begins when you least expect it. For Elana, falling in love begins in Hell. When twenty-one-year-old Elana is kidnapped and finds herself in Hell of all places, she discovers something unique in her ancestry. She’s a werewolf and she’s fallen in love with someone unexpectedly Dante, the young demon who agrees to help her escape.
EXCERPT Featuring Elana and Dante
Meet Elana, a werewolf who falls in love in the most unlikely of places, Hell. Dante is the young demon who agrees to help her escape from a certain death at the hands of his evil father, Lucifer.
Then finally, he embraced me again. “Not this time. He won’t succeed this time.”
The moment I felt his hand on the back of my neck, I moaned quietly. The emotions in me rose to the surface. I couldn’t control it. And I couldn’t deny it. I had found love in the most unlikely place, at the most unlikely time. I remained frozen in Dante’s grasp. If my freedom was at the hands of this demon, so be it. If it meant losing my heart to him in the process, so be it. I wanted to spend eternities being in this young man’s arms. Forever.
Elana, think with your head. This demon is the enemy too. We must destroy them all.
For the first time in my life, I ignored the Wolf.
“I’m sorry about before. I didn’t realize my words would hurt you, Dante. Please forgive me.” I swallowed down the Wolf’s words as I recognized the fact that my priorities were quickly changing.
Dante’s arms tightened closer around me. “Just because I live among demons doesn’t mean I will stay a demon. Haven’t you wanted to better yourself or be someone different?”
“I like who I am, Dante.”
“A wolf girl in a frilly dress?”
I considered his insult. Maybe I was a snotty brat. That’s what my stepmother called me. But I didn’t care what others thought. I was fine with who I was. “I like being a werewolf. Thank you very much. I can’t think of what else I’d want to be. A vampire?” I sighed loudly, more for Dante’s benefit and not my own. The idea of me having to change for someone infuriated me and I refused to do it.
“If war comes, you’ll have to think about more than your dresses and parties. That’s all I’m saying.”
I nodded, holding back a line of more insults. Now was not the time. “If you can help me escape, I’ll be in your debt,” I stated.
Pulling away from me as he gazed into my eyes, he tucked a portion of my long blonde bangs under my cap again. He searched my face for answers. A million problems seemed to be knotted up behind his eyes. His brows drew together in an agonized expression. “You don’t owe me anything. This is between me and Lucifer, not you. These games must end now. I know that now. He’ll never stop unless someone steps in.”
His discourse didn’t seem directed at me.
“I can say that I only wish we had met under more favorable circumstances because I fear that when you leave you will be taking my heart with you,” he added.
Tears rose in my eyes and I pressed my face into his chest. “I’ll keep it safe, Dante. I promise. But first I must tell you something.” After realizing he had just handed his heart over to me, I decided to come clean and tell him everything. My charade of the silly party girl was wearing thin and my emotions were all over the place. Would Dante understand?
