Excerpt

The ride over to Cyrius Eats didn’t take long. As she sat on the passenger side of the SUV, she took in the sights she’d not been able to see under cover of darkness. It was still early, and as the car drove towards the destination, Onessa watched as life in the bayou crawled at a slow pace. Mist clung to the surface of the dark, murky water. A blanket of white hovered over the still depths. Darkened tree trunks rooted to the bottom of the swamp reached as high as their rotting limbs would allow as moss hung on for dear life. Her pulse sped up as she noticed something slicing its way just beneath the surface, displacing the white curtain floating just above. When two eyes appeared, she held in her grasp and turned to face front. The road was empty as they drove along in silence. She’d been going in the right direction, and if it hadn’t been for the wolves, she’d have made it. She’d start by apologizing for her tardiness and tell him she was ready to learn. When they pulled up to the restaurant, Alaric jumped out of the car and opened her door.

“Go in through the door, and head back through the kitchen. The office is the second door on your right. I’ll grab your bags.”

Onessa followed his instructions. When she reached the office, the door was open. There was someone already there. Someone obviously male. His back faced her, and the distinct smell of hard liquor scented the air. When he turned around, her breath left her. She’d been expecting a Gerard Depardieu-looking kind of mentor. Not the Incredible Hunk.

Cover Reveal: The Black Prince

Here is the beautiful cover of The Black Prince, done by Dreams2Media! Isn’t it beautiful! I’m so excited about this book in the series. Things are getting stirred up, and as usual things are not always what they seem. Enri is our resident bad guy, controller of the Death Walkers, and all around bad ass.. (Although, Royce wouldn’t agree.) I’m looking forward to everyone meeting him, and the heroine of the story, who is Dietrich’s sister, Yewa.

The Tide is changing, and Chaos has a name. A line has been drawn and sides must be taken. The Black Prince, the 5th book in my Shadow Unit Series coming late November 2016.

Tidbit Tuesday: A Slow Burn: Stories from Beauville

Welcome back to Beauville, where anything is possible.

Here is a snippet of how it all started. A snippet from A Slow Burn, book 1 in my Stories from Beauville Series.

 

“Annabelle.”

“Sheriff Storme.”

He smiled, and I swear my heart beat a little faster at the sight of his dimples. Joey and Treat were talking quietly amongst themselves leaving Jackson and me alone.

“City life too fast for you? My sister told me you’d moved back from New York.”

“Nah, just home for a while, taking a break. Joey didn’t tell me you were the sheriff. The badge looks good on you.”

Hell anything would look good on him, present company included.

He didn’t respond to my comment, just tipped his head forward again. That was one thing I didn’t really care for about southern boys; they were always so damned polite. However, I’d learned a few things while living in New York, and one of my most valuable lessons was to live in the moment. Snatch it up and run with it because who knew when opportunity was going to throw you down on a bed, hell the ground at my feet, and give it to me raw and dirty like I knew Jackson could.

“How long are you going to be in Beauville?”

“Depends.”

I wasn’t going to beat around the bush. I know when a man wants me.

“On what, Annabelle,” my name was like gravel in his mouth. Like he was having a hard time talking to me, or maybe he was annoyed that I hadn’t given him a flat out answer. But damn his voice was darker, the drawl that all southern men came standard with became slower, affecting that place between my thighs I so badly wanted to introduce him to.

“On you, sugar.”

I watched as Jackson’s pupils dilated and his nostrils flared. I could flirt with the best of them and not even bat an eyelash. I knew I wanted him. I wanted him something fierce, and had for as long as I could remember.

“You taunting me, Annabelle?”

He took a step forward making me look up into his heated gaze. This conversation had taken a different kind of turn. I expected Jackson to be shocked, maybe even a little hesitant. But our harmless flirtation had become something altogether different, something sexy. Dare I call it foreplay?

Normally, I needed to be touched, coaxed into the horizontal mambo, but Jackson Storme could make me come in zero to ten, I was one hundred and fifty percent positive we were eye-fucking right out in the open for all to see. The man threw off animal magnetism in large doses. Someone needed to bottle his scent, which had somehow over powered my senses, and sell it at top dollar, he was that intoxicating. It was a combination of virile man and hot summer mornings that slowly heated, until finally by mid-afternoon you were dying of thirst, because it was too hot.

“Jackson Storme,” I smiled sweetly using my own southern drawl and said, “I would never-ever think to do such a thing.” I batted my lashes and turned in the direction of Joey and Treat, thinking I could get away. The plan was to have him eating out of the palm of my hand by the end of the day. But he only let me make it five steps before grabbing my arm and turning me around to face him. The skin on skin contact had my breath hitching and my eyes widening in apprehension. Maybe I wasn’t ready for Sheriff Jackson Storme. His face was hard as he peered down at me and frown lines began to form around the corners of his mouth as he pulled me closer to whisper into my ear.

“Ms. Macon, do have a care in how you tempt me. I’m not like those little boys in the city. You can’t and won’t control me, honey.”

Mayura: Sanskrit for Peacock Diary Entry Number: 1

There are many different stories or myths in regards to the Peacock. The moment I realized I was surrounded by feathers, and that they belonged to the majestic bird. I did some research. This first entry is just one of the myth’s about the Peacock.

The legend goes that the Mayura was created from the feathers of Garuda, another semi-divine bird of Hindu Myths. Which Garuda is thought to be a vahana or conveyance of Vishnu, one of the Trimurti. The Mayura are mythical and is a symbol of the cycle of time.

So imagine being where I was, and waking to find I’m surrounded by feathers, and then, later on down the road you look up the significance, because they say all dreams mean something, you find that this particular bird, in Hindu scriptures is associated with the cycle of time. Does this mean my time could have been up? Or was it just beginning? Or did my time somehow get interrupted? I pondered that greatly until I remember something my grandmother told me about Peacocks. But I’ll save that for another entry. It’s time for me to go to PT with Beau. I haven’t admitted it out loud to anyone, least of all Jackson, but Beau is definitely a looker. But he’s also professional so he doesn’t make it weird between us when we do PT. Instead he’s a relentless bastard that I want to kill at the end of our sessions. Until Next time!
