A quote from my “secret project”

I’m working on a HUGE project, but it’s still a secret, so I can’t reveal the details yet. And this quote is not from CK 3….

Lion: A Quote From Sniper

This excerpt sums up Sniper in a few sentences. Sniper’s one of my bad boys (he’s a mobster), and if you follow my books, you know my bad boys aren’t just “bad“, they’re wicked and deadly. I can’t wait to let you meet him. I’ll post a quote from the hero in the book soon, too. I’m terrible with setting release dates, so I’ll just post when it’s up, which should be very soon.

So…what do you think of the cover? Damn sexy🙂

CK3 Excerpt: Shadow’s Nightstalkers

darknight

Here it is! Your preview of Christian’s Kisses: Shadow.

A “tense scene” got the most votes, with “Anything with Christian” coming in a close second—–like, it lost by two votes that’s how close it was.

So sorry, you can’t read a sexy scene with your favorite master vampire today (And OMG there’s some SUPER awesome ones in Shadow), you’ll have to wait until the books release. But, I gave you some quotes from him instead.😉

And thanks to everyone who voted!  When I get closer to setting a release date for the books, I’ll be sure to let you all know, so look out for that!

Enjoy the excerpt!

“Get on your plane okay?” Addison sounded worried, a few voices in the background making hers a little hard to hear. He could hear Christian talking, but it didn’t sound like she was sitting next to him.

“Leaves in a bit.” He tossed his cigarette to the ground, grinding it into the pavement. As he scanned the space ahead of him, he saw a few figures approaching. Licking his lips, he glanced around again cautiously.

The parking lot was pretty desolate on this side of the airport, so it seemed odd such a large group of people were gathered together. He studied them with sharp eyes, trying to see if he could make out any faces. He knew all the hunters here, but none of these men were anyone he knew.

Ever since the attack on the manor, Josh was a little high strung. He hadn’t seen a Nightwalker yet, and he’d be glad never to.

Addison continued, “Where are you going? Christian said—“

“I gotta go, Addy. I’ll call you when I get there, ‘kay?” Josh then hung up. He shoved his phone back in his pocket, then started walking briskly toward the door.

As soon as he turned his back, he was jumped from behind. One of the attackers started choking him and dragging him away from the building, Josh frantically trying to break free. He spit out his false teeth and sunk his fangs into the man’s arm. When he tasted the spoiled blood of a corpse, he recoiled, Josh ripping the man’s arms off him.

ckInitiation2015Running as fast as he could, Josh took off. He knew if there was one Nightstalker, there were a few more. And there was. A whole gang of the uglies, most likely stragglers from the attack the other night.

Josh wiped at his lips, the taste of curdled blood still lingering in his mouth. He felt a slight tingle to go with it, his tongue feeling a bit numb. He knew Nightstalkers’ blood was poison to vampires, but he didn’t know how much. And because he was on such high alert, he didn’t have time to worry about it. He needed to find an exit. Now.

Like a raging lion, he began fighting off the foes. Ripping through their soft, rotten flesh with his sharp fangs, Josh overpowered them and plowed through each one that stood in his path.

And right now, he seemed to be winning. He took down a few on his way out to the parking lot. He knew better than to bring this fight inside the airport.

This was also the first time the Nightstalkers had attacked in a public place that he knew of. That meant they didn’t care if they were seen. This was not good and Josh didn’t want to stick around to find out why, or meet the one leading this pack of undead. If Shadow was here, too, he would be in big trouble.

A few caught up to him, the Nightstalkers running at super human speed. Even the ones he wounded had shaken off the normally fatal wounds, and came at him like rabid wolves.

Instead of fighting back anymore, Josh knew it was time to retreat. He ran as fast as his legs could carry him, and with his vampire blood, he was able to out run the Nightstalkers.

Finally, he had lost them, and was able to reach a safe place before he collapsed. He stopped near a small donut shop. Standing against the building, he paused to catch his breath. His shaky hands took out his phone. He was feeling sick, his stomach turning.

Then, he felt it. A great burning in his throat. In his fight, he didn’t know how much Nightstalker blood he had ingested. But now he realized it had been too much.

He started to vomit, Josh’s face reddened. His vision was blurry, Josh feeling like he were about to faint. A figure shot out of the darkness, slamming him against the wall. Josh’s eyes settled on the man’s face. It was covered by a demon mask, the man wearing a cocky smile, large fangs protruding from his bluish lips.

ckseedofthemastercot2015He looked like an elite. One of Josh’s own. But this man was not just an elite. No…he couldn’t be an elite. This man possessed demonic powers. Josh could feel it. That icy kiss of hell’s blue flame emanating from this man. Hanging around him like a dark, heavy shroud.

The man chuckled, the sound of his sadistic laugh echoing in Josh’s head. Josh couldn’t move, the man’s hands now the only thing that kept him standing. This man’s touch felt like ice, his fingers burning the elite’s flesh.

This had to be Shadow. The one Christian had been searching for. Josh knew he was in big trouble, and though his brain screamed at his body to move and resist the demon, Josh couldn’t. He was paralyzed, his skin feeling like it was being pricked by a million tiny needles—each one going so deep, he could feel it in his bones.

“Sleepy, sleepy, Joshy….” Baring his fangs, Shadow chuckled with his excited words. He sunk his teeth into the soft flesh of Josh’s neck. Josh opened his mouth to scream, but nothing came out.

 

Poll: Preview of Christian’s Kisses: Shadow

ckInitiation2015Since I’ve had a few people asking me for this, I’ll be putting up an excerpt from the newest novel in my Christian’s Kisses’ series, Shadow.

Christian’s Kisses has some dedicated followers (thanks for the love, me and Christian are lapping it up.)  And I’m super psyched that you’re so excited for it’s release. But…it’s still a rough draft, so you might be waiting a while lol.

On a poll I posted (I think it was this spring?), it was the series that most people voted to have another book for, Nightwalkers coming in second.  And the margin was pretty one sided in favor of Christian, which I wasn’t expecting.

You all wanted it, so I wrote it. See how that works? Butter up one of your favorite authors, and she’ll write a new book for one of your favorite series.

Hopefully, this little tease will keep you going until the book comes out. Ha ha, or Christian will tease you too much and you’ll want to clobber me.

I thought it’d be fun to do a poll on what kind of excerpt I will post. Because I will only post one……

Add your vote in the box below to pick how you like to be teased😉

 

Update on my series and WIP’s

nightwalkersbanner2016

I need to quickly address some things, so you’re getting a second July update. I’ve been getting a few emails asking about Nightwalkers, so I’m going to address the plans for the series, as well as some of my other WIPs.

I plan on releasing these books in the near future. If one of my stories isn’t on this list, then it’s not on the list for edits or potential publication. They are listed in the order I hope to get to them. Of course, things may change, but this is where they stand in order as of now.

—————————————————————————————————————————————

Lie’s Prince and Lie’s King:

These books have been recently contracted to Hartwood Publishing, so they should be my next books released. They are my top priority at the moment. I will give you more information about those books, like release dates, etc, when I get them.

 

ck1Christian’s Kisses Books 3 and 4:

Both of these books are written, but I’m still debating on whether they will be a part 1 or Part 2 type of thing. They are the same continuous story, so they have to be read together. CK 3 and 4 are more intense than the first two books and written in a slightly different style, so that’s a bit of a change.

 

foreverblackNightwalkers Book 4 and it’s spin-off book, Kiss of the Moon:

Nightwalkers 4 is roughly outlined, but I’m not giving away any details about it yet. If you read the ending of Blood War (book 3), you may already guess some of the issues that will arise in Book 4.

The spin off book, Kiss of the Moon will follow the “past” love story of the Count and Countess. It will take all the flashbacks in the books, put them in order, and fill in the rest of the story that you haven’t seen. It will be set in medieval times, so it will not be a contemporary romance like the rest of the books in the series.

Mistletoe:

This is my sports romance. It’s currently completed as a short story, but I want to make it a full novel. So yes, to all my hockey lovers, I’ll be releasing another sport’s romance in the future.

———————————————————————————————————————————–

dollshoppecoverrepub2016noAlso, keep in mind that CK and Nightwalkers are no longer contracted to a publisher. That means I have to go the self-publishing route with the next books in the series. So, it will take more time to get them out because of that.

I am planning on formatting some of my published books for print, also. When I do, I will start with Nightwalkers. So, if you’re looking for a paper back version of one of my books, I should have them available sometime in the near future.

And just a heads up, I know they are listed as having paperback versions on Amazon already, but they those books aren’t available anymore. Those are the SCP versions of the books and were taken down when I got the rights back to the books.

And I’m sure if you nudged me a bit, you’d get them faster. There hasn’t really been a need to go to paperback, so I haven’t done it yet. But…if I know there is, I will get them out faster. So, let me know if there’s one you want and I’ll make it a priority😉

If you have any other questions, feel free to shoot me an email and I’d be glad to answer it. I love talking to fans, so I’ll try to answer your questions to the best of my ability.
