I was falling, emotions first, in The Raven’s trap. And I didn’t try to stop myself.

Raven was undoing me piece by piece, knitting me tighter into his trap.

The Raven was shaping and fastening me into a hot mess. His hot mess.

Excerpt from Opposing Sides:

I stepped out of the director’s office and entered the main area. Standing in all his six foot two glory was the star quarterback of our universities’ football team. I had never seen him in person, and I felt like a midget looking up at him.  Even though I didn’t know him personally, I’d heard and read enough about him to know he was a womanizer and had a drug problem.

Another reason why I shouldn’t help him.

“Hi, I’m Lexi Thompson and I’ve been asked to consult with you.” I made it clear that it wasn’t my choice to help him.

“Lexi. Hmm, I like that name.”

Uh, no you don’t.

His full lips spread, revealing the most charming smile, coupled with a deep dimple on the right. Now I knew why every girl fell for him.  But I was smarter than that. “I’m Raven.” He stalled for a moment, his eyes giving me a thorough exam to the point that I bet he knew what color my panties were. “Raven Davenport.” He ran a hand over his short buzz cut, and he looked like the perfect model for an Abercrombie and Fitch ad. Minus his T-shirt.

He was toxic and smelled of sex and drugs. Well, not that I knew what all that smelled like, but his aura beamed bright red warning me to be careful.

“Are you ready to get started? Because we only have an hour.” I held out my hand, motioning to a small table in the corner.

“That’s plenty of time.” He raised his brows.

I rolled my eyes and walked to the table. Taking a seat, I took out the agreement that Dr. Philips prepared. I signed my name, and moved the papers in front of him. “Please sign this.”

Raven leaned over the table. “I was thinking you might want to do this somewhere private.” A seductive grin spread across his lips as he pressed his weight against it, as if testing the durability of the wood.

My jaw dropped. Was he serious? My fiancé didn’t even tease me that way. Although that would’ve been nice. Then again, we hadn’t even made out on a bed much less on a table. I had to restrain myself from slapping him.

“Excuse me, Mr. Davenport?”

He pulled out a chair and sat down. “You can call me Raven.”  I guess by the tone in my voice he knew I meant business.

“Please read the agreement, and let me know if you have any questions. I indicated we would meet twice a week for an hour and more if a mutual agreement can be established.”

“Okay. Sounds fair. Do you have a pen?” He held out his hand. His long fingers curled up in a perfect cup. A hand that was made for a football and caressing various female parts.

Whoa! Where did that come from?

Extending my hand, I gave him my pen. He eased it from my fingertips in a gentle motion. “Thank you, Lexi.”

He signed the paper and handed it back to me.

“Aren’t you going to read it?”

Shaking his head, he said, “No, I trust you.”

“But you don’t even know me.”

“Not yet.” His green eyes sparkled. “But my gut tells me we’re going to get to know each other real well.”

It was obvious why Lisa didn’t want to work with him. I made a mental note to call her the second he left. I sucked in a quick breath and let it out to clear my head. “Whatever.” With haste I removed my Hodge’s Harbrace Handbook and another pen from my backpack. I opened the folder Dr. Philips gave me and took out his papers.

“I reviewed your file and—”

“You and everybody else.” His head lowered and his shoulders sunk.

I continued, unsure of how to handle the comment. “I have an idea of where you need the most help with your writing.”

His head popped up and a layer of relief removed the downward slope of his lips. “You do?”

“Yes. I think we should start with some grammar basics.” I opened the book to the first chapter and moved it between us. I placed one of his papers below the book, prepared to show him examples so he could relate easily to the concepts. “I’ll give you a quick and dirty overview of the parts of speech to start off.”

He moved his chair closer to me, and a fresh sent of juniper and bergamot swept over me. The guy smelled like a cologne insert from one of my magazines, and I tried hard not to breathe it in. But the more I tried not to, the more I loved the smell.

Darn, I wish Collin smelled that good.

He flashed me a grin. “I like it quick and dirty.”

I wanted to slap myself. Could I have used a poorer word choice? “I’m sure you do Raven. I mean, you’re a guy and a football player.”

“True,” a half smile formed, “but not every guy likes to do things quickly or get messy doing them.”

A rush of heat inundated me. I yanked a hair band off my wrist and pulled my hair up in a messy bun. I raised the sleeves on my shirt and braced myself.

I’ll be damned if I let this jerk get to me.

Ignoring his comment, I pressed forward with my instruction. Raven listened intently and nodded his head while asking related questions. When the guy wasn’t being a big flirt, he was actually pleasant to be around.  I felt sorry for him because he had gone through school without learning grammar rules. Then again, most people never make it a point to learn them and base everything on how people talk. No wonder the guy couldn’t write a proper sentence. The weird thing was his verbal skills seemed fine, but his written skills, well, that was another story.

Helping him might not be so bad after all.

After forty minutes of reviewing grammar syntax, he began to lose interest. He shifted his weight and yawned a few times, stretching his arms that nearly wrapped around me. I scooted to the edge of my chair, praying he wouldn’t rest his elbow behind me. Before he lowered his arms, his phone buzzed. His eyes widened with delight as he looked at the screen.

“Excuse me, I need to take this call.”

“Um, no, you can’t.” I pointed to a sign on the wall. “Policy says—,”

“Hey baby, what’s up?” He answered the phone, ignoring me and the rule of no talking on the phone in the writing center.

He rambled about his schedule and practice for a minute or so before shifting gears. I contemplated if I should get up and tell Dr. Phillips. That would mean instant removal from the writing center and I wouldn’t have to help him. Then again it probably wouldn’t matter because the coach had called in a favor. I started to stand but stopped when the lure of his voice made it too hard to resist listening to his conversation. His smitten words rolled off his tongue and he sounded like Eros himself. Warmth rose from my belly, and I turned around to see who else was in the center. Luckily, Sara had already left and Kyler was talking to a student and not paying much attention.

Raven was having phone sex with the girl he was talking to!

Visuals flashed through my mind, and my face burned hearing the words he spoke. I covered my ears but it didn’t help. My heart raced, and my breath quickened. I shifted in my chair, crossing my legs tightly until my feet went numb.

“Yeah, baby, right there.” He winked at me.

I gasped. “I’ll be right back.” I rushed out of the room and headed straight for the bathroom.

Closing the door to the lounge located next to the stalls, I paced the small room as I fanned myself. Being a virgin, I had never come close to experiencing anything so dirty but sensual at the same time. And the worst part, it wasn’t even directed at me! The guy was blessed with sexual creativity. Why the heck didn’t he use some of that imagination and gear that toward his school work?

Sure, I had read those types of sex scenes in romance books, but it was entirely different hearing them firsthand. Well, second hand in this case. But nonetheless, I had just become hyper aware of tingles and sensations caused by an actual human being.

By a guy that was sitting next me.

And the saddest part, it wasn’t Collin.

I sighed as I collapsed onto the cushioned bench. The situation wasn’t good, and every warning light was flashing.

Reason number 3 — don’t lust over something that isn’t yours.

Excerpt from The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4)

“Smoothies.”  I smiled and secretly prayed the green smoothie was not for me because I instantly thought of the color of my father’s demon eyes when I saw it.  Green was not a favorite color of mine.

“Yes.”  He shoved the glass at me.

I stepped back for a moment as the liquid nearly sloshed out of the glass.

“That was a waste of fucking time.  Typhean is being such a prick!  J wants us to take a break to cool down.”

When I heard Blick’s curse word, I almost choked on my smoothie.  Blick did not swear…ever.  From that comment, I knew the situation was bad.  I swallowed the liquid quickly and thought, ‘Of course it’s bad.  I’m on my way home to Hell, and I bet I have to go alone.’  I remained quiet, watching him inhale the large glass of green whatever.  I paused for a moment, still staring up at him because he was so much taller than me.

His gold eyes flashed as he returned my gaze.  I wanted to reach out and grab his hand in mine, but I hesitated.  “You’ll have to change into something more battle-worthy if you have to go.  Can I talk to you while you do, back up at the house?”

“Sure,” I brightened, finishing off my red smoothie.  Not being able to taste any blood was wonderful.  That was Blick’s secret.  I loved how he made them where I couldn’t taste the metallic-ness.  My efforts didn’t produce the same results, so I stuck with blood tea.  For a brief second, I thought to ask whose blood I had drunk, but seeing how preoccupied Blick was, I let the question drop.  Instead, I went for the comedy relief angle.  “Always trying to get me out of my clothes, hmmm?” I purred.

As I reached out for his hand, he immediately pulled it away.  He clenched his jaw and a vein in his neck spasmed.  “This is work, Rayea.  We don’t have time for that.”  He yanked his fingers through his black hair with both hands.

Feeling defeated, I assumed the same professional manner with him.  “You bet.  My apologies.  What was I thinking?  I was making a joke to lighten the mood, Blick.  That’s all.  But hey, fuck me, okay.  I’m an idiot.  I get that.”

I stomped past him, feeling one of the laces on my sneakers loosen.  I made a big production about walking by him.  “Why don’t you stay here on the beach?  I can dress myself.”

Before I knew it, he pulled me into his arms.  His large height of seven-feet enveloped me and I came face to face with his muscular chest.  His white t-shirt glared in the sunlight.  Thank god, I can’t burn up to a crisp in this sunshine, I thought.  But if I did, Blick’s beautiful chest was the last thing I’d want to see.  Well almost the last thing, I laughed to myself.

I closed my eyes and let Blick hold me.  My mind and body instantly calmed.  I sank into his embrace.  No questions asked.  He didn’t say a word as he held me.  He simply rocked me slightly back and forth as he stroked my black hair.  I wanted to collapse into a pile of jelly on the beach before him.

I eased back from him some to give us a little bit of distance as his hands slowly traveled to rest on my waist.  I felt his touch tickle the small of my back as he laced his fingers in a couple of the belt loops on my blue jeans.  Must this end? I wondered.

“I’m sorry, Blick.  I know this is no laughing matter.  I’ve got to go.  I’ve got to save Lynn and Ashton if it’s not too late.  What did J tell you that I’m not supposed to know?”

“It’s your first mission.  It’s a test.  J said if you save your friends, the council will look favorably on that.  But he wants to explore more options.  He’s making some calls now.”

My eyes grew wide as I listened to him.  “We’re running out of time!”

He nodded.  “I know.  I know.  It’s such bullshit.  I’m so tired of the politics.  It’s J’s call.  How am I supposed to deny J’s wishes?”

I swallowed hard and let my head fall on his chest.  He was right.  After the near brain-melting exercise I had been in with J, I knew better than to disagree with him unless I had an extremely good reason for doing so.  I’d have to see this through on my own.  It would be too dangerous otherwise and I didn’t want any more of my friends getting hurt.

Blick continued to rub his hands through my hair, lazily, aimlessly.  It felt like it was an eternity before he spoke again and shattered our tense silence.

“I can’t go with you.  I’ve been instructed to stand down on this one.”

My body tightened and I broke our embrace, immediately sobering as reality reared its ugly head again.  I heard a light vibration sound and realized it was Blick’s phone.

He pulled his iPhone from his back pocket and stared at it.  His face reddened slightly.  He muttered a few expletives under his breath and my heart sank.

“Beelzebub contacted J and made a deal with him.  You’ll accompany Beelzebub to Hell…” He paused, fighting to control his growing rage as he violently stuffed his phone in the back pocket of his jeans.

“Blick,” I whispered.  This time I grabbed his hand, knowing he could very easily rip it off if he changed into his werewolf self in front of me.

“I’m okay,” he grunted and stepped away from me.  Crouching down, Blick rubbed his hands over the upper portion of his jeans.  Repeatedly he bent down, rubbed his hands over his jeans, and then stood up again.  He chewed his lips like he was waiting for a quarterback to hike a football.  Is that some new meditation pose? I wondered.

Suddenly he jerked up again and flung his hands out.  “You’ll accompany Beelzebub to Hell as his prisoner.  They agreed it’s the best way to get you in.”

“That’s ridiculous,” I began.  I felt like I had been kicked in the stomach and I was ready to vent to the gods and have a knock down drag out “Hell to No” conversation with Blick and anyone else who thought I was going back to Hell like some bound schmuck in restraints.  “No, no way.  No.  No.  No.”

Out of the corner of my eye, I saw that Blick was not trying to calm me down as I made a scene on the beach.  The odd position?  Anger management.  He was fighting to keep his own emotions in check.  Calmly he simply nodded now and then, glancing back at the deck occasionally.  But his gold eyes told a different story completely.

Having always protected me from any and every threat, Blick refused to put me in harm’s way.  He was beyond livid and he detested having to do as J said, especially when it came to my welfare.  Then it dawned on me.  My going to Hell would be harder on him than me.  If I didn’t agree with J and Beelzebub’s deal, I would have to come up with one of my own and freaking fast.

“Can you give me a second please?” I asked.

As Blick wrinkled his eyebrows at me, he asked, “What are you up to?”

“Just a second.”

“You’re not calling anyone.  Hand me your phone now.”  Blick knew me too well.

I produced my phone from my back pocket and placed it in his hands.  His tan was so lovely.  It made me wonder just how much of his body was or wasn’t tanned.  Momentarily, I thought of asking him if he had any tan lines, but I let the thought drift to the back of my skull.  Later, I surmised.  I can ask him that question and many others when this is all over.

I stepped away from Blick and faced the water.  I knew he was still close enough in proximity that I could reach for him if necessary.  I used every ounce of vampire speed I had to think of a million scenarios.  I felt the blood from the smoothie race through my veins.  Images flashed before my eyes as I let the possibilities play out in my head like I was playing a hundred chess games at once.  It was a trick I had learned while patiently indulging Typhean in the few firepowers he showed me.  His imagination was weak at best.  He wasn’t the strong blood god he pretended to be.

I had my own deal with Beelzebub and I was going to hold up my end of the bargain even if he didn’t.  Getting Lynn and Ashton free was my top priority.  Beelzebub could have control of Hell then.  My safety was secondary.  I didn’t want to tell Blick that, but it looked like I was going to have to make a deal with the devil, in this case my sister, if I was going to get my friends out of Hell.  She wanted me.  She didn’t want them.

Letting the images go and disconnecting from the telepathy channel I had tapped into helped me relax.  This time it had been rather easy and I wondered if the red smoothie had anything to do with it.

Then quite suddenly a face assaulted my mind’s eye.  The creature’s green eyes glowed at me in the dark.  He shouted a few times in my direction, but I realized he wasn’t talking to me.  Who was he yelling at?

“Where is she?  Is she with him?  Tell me, human!  Is she?  My daughter should be at my side, not his,” he roared.

“Lynn!” I screamed.

I came to as I saw Blick jolt up from a resting place on the sand.  He tried to grab me by my elbows so I wouldn’t fall, but I fell anyways.  The brief moments of seeing Father again even through my mind’s eye evaporated my strength.  I could not focus on that.  My friends were in danger.

“Rayea, Rayea, are you okay?  What?  What is it?”

“Where’s J?  Where is he?  We have to tell him.  Blick, it’s Lynn.  Father has her.  He’s alive.  Father’s alive and he’s looking for me!  We have to do something!  We have to get them out of there!  He’s going to kill them!”

Before I could regain my energy and stand, a searing hot pain crossed over my back like it was on fire.  Shrieking, I fell to the ground.  “Blick, Blick,” I gasped.

He dropped my iPhone in the sand and reached out for me, falling to the ground in front of me.

I couldn’t move.  My body pressed into the sand as if a massive animal had its foot on my back.  I pulled my face up so I could see Blick.

He stared at me.  The look of horror on his handsome face scared me more than I wanted to admit.  The pain ripping across my back did little to console me.  I knew I was in trouble.  This would be the end of me.  Blick’s hand found mine when I heard Typhean’s voice, hissing through my head.  He laced his fingers around mine and squeezed.

Typhean had entered my body again in the form of the dragon tattoo I had on my back.  The pain raging across my shoulders increased.  His voice was the only thought I could hear in my head.  I saw Blick before me.  I saw his lips move, but I couldn’t hear him.  I saw his hand wrapped around mine, but I couldn’t feel his touch.  It was like I was sealed off into a dark place with just Typhean by my side, even though Typhean was not visibly there with me.  Only Blick was there.

The time is at hand, my lady,” Typhean said telepathically.  The dragon tattoo that represented his body on my back pressed tighter against me.  I struggled to keep my head up.  I didn’t want to take my eyes off Blick.  I wanted to understand what he was trying to tell me.  His lips moved, but I couldn’t decipher the words.

“We must be on our way.  Your father is calling for you and he has reclaimed his throne in Hell.  He wants his daughters at his side.  We mustn’t be late for the party.

“Blick,” I screamed when I heard Typhean speak to me again.

The last thing I remembered was gripping Blick’s strong hand in mine.  I was sprawled out on the beach, trying to speak to Blick’s mind, but I couldn’t.  Darkness overwhelmed me and Blick’s face, the sand, the beach, everything vanished.  I felt like I was falling.

Then I felt a soft kiss Blick commonly placed on my nose touch me in the darkness.  His signature kiss.  I heard his words swirl around me, like his tender touch on my shoulder from before.  “That smoothie you drank.  It contained my blood.

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.

Excerpt from The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4)

If I could count the times I have woken up tied to a chair, I’d be a millionaire by now.  That’s where I found myself when I heard the voice of Stephanie, my demon sister.
“Welcome to Hell! We’re having a party in your honor, and you’re sleeping through it,
sssister,” she hissed.
I felt a blow blast across the right side of my head.  A hit delivered by someone I couldn’t see.  A blow for my sister’s amusement.

“What a lovely welcome home, dear sister!” I said sarcastically as I raised my head.It was on now. I smacked my mouth open wide, cranking my neck upwards as I extended my fangs.  The freakier I could look, the better, I thought.  When I surged my head upwards, a sharp pain sliced into my neck.  Something restrained me.  My fangs flipped inwardly and retreated to their hiding spot in the roof of my mouth. I tasted my own blood, and I had not bitten my tongue.  This could be bad, I thought.

“I’d be careful if I were you, sissy,” Stephanie said.  “That collar has spikes going into your neck.  The more you move, the more Typhean there will turn the corkscrew that holds the collar together.  The spikes are drilling into your neck.  If you jump suddenly, it’ll rip your head off, and then where will you be? One dead vampire.”
