Scattered Flames ~ The Dragon Queen Series

Sacrifice

Lost in a sea of pleasure, Imrie cried out, never wanting the sensation to end. Whatever he desires of me, I will do it. She turned her head, allowing him to drink freely.

Ukemi appeared in the doorway.

Imrie went rigid.

Thankfully, the vision and blood lust had Lord Lucius distracted, or for lack of a better word, occupied. Had he seen Ukemi, he would’ve reacted.

“Ukemi, you shouldn’t be here! If he sees you…”

With her sweet face bunched in disappointment, she shook her head. “You’re no better than your husband. You sold your soul and body to the devil just to trap the dragon queen, and now he owns you.”

“No my dear girl, I sold my soul and body to the devil so you wouldn’t have to. Now please, return to your quarters before he senses you.”

“She is torn between the darkness and the light” #TouchTheDark #99Cents #ASMSG

TOUCH THE DARK

Silent Screams ~ Yvonne Nicolas

“Torn between darkness and light, can Rayne save mankind?”

Touch The Dark

Silent Screams Excerpt

The erratic pounding beneath her chest had her pulse racing. Her body felt strange. A static charge started at her head and worked its way down to her toes. In waves, it rolled back up her body and left the center of her back pulsating. “What the hell…?”

SilentScreams_ebook_final_smallBewildered, Rayne reached back under her shirt, and brushed her fingers over her dragon tattoo. She vividly remembered when she got it. It was years ago in Hong Kong. On that day, she was a little tipsy, and feeling mighty damn adventurous.

As she stroked her tatted flesh, it thumped against her fingers like a heartbeat. Weird!

In the thick of her confusion, something really freaky happened. Time slowed down. Rayne turned in a circle watching everything in motion drag to a sluggish pace. After that, everything went mute. She couldn’t hear the sounds of cars driving by, or the chatter of the people walking along the strip, who literally moved in slow motion as they sauntered by.

It was like being caught up in some bizarre dream.

A presence… She felt a presence that made her insides flutter. She’d felt this presence before, in her mind. Could it be him? Demetri? Had he actually found her?

Nervously, she clutched the end of her shirt and scanned the area for just a glimpse of him. No one stood out. No one even looked her way. Was he teasing her, or was her mind truly playing tricks on her? “That’s it, make me even crazier than I already am,” she muttered.

Along the side of the street, a cab pulled up next to her. The driver, a middle aged man with a cropped haircut and a broad smile, stepped out of the car. He trotted around the vehicle to where she stood and opened the back door. Sweeping his hand through the air, he gestured for her to enter.

Without asking any questions, she slid into the cab.

It was a quiet ten minute ride to the beach. Still smiling, the driver helped her out, and then waved for her to follow him.

Her Adidas’ rubber soles dug into the sand as they trudged along the deserted beach.

Off in the horizon, a pale pink tint from the moon beamed over the small waves in the ocean and highlighted the grains of sand. They sparkled under her appraisal like a trillion tiny diamonds in the spotlight.

The driver led her to a small gazebo near the shore. Sheer red curtains covered the openings. Through the transparent fabric a chaise lounge sat in the center of it. On the side, was a tall bucket filled with ice, chilling a large bottle. Probably wine. Long metal torches on either side of the shelter added to the glow already cast from the moon above.

“This is lovely, but why’d you bring me out…?” She turned to find the driver gone. “Ohh-kay, Houdini, where’d ya’ go?”

A gentle breeze blew ripples over the water and pushed the curtains back, as if to welcome her into the cozy enclosure.

Swallowing hard, she moved toward it.

A deep croon brushed the side of her neck. “Do you approve?”

Startled, she whirled around and tumbled backwards. The heel of her shoe dipped into a patch of soft sand and she lost her balance.

A pair of hands caught her by the arms. She was jerked upright and drawn against a hard masculine body. Her breath came out in shorts spurts as his arms circled her waist. “Oh God,” was all she could whimper.

Deathly afraid to look up into his face, she clutched the lapels of his jacket and squeezed her eyes shut. Panic picked at her nerves. Suddenly, she realized she was holding her breath.

Breathe, Rayne, breathe.

This was no dream, or vision. This was actually happening. He’s here! He’s really here!

The enticing scent that made her horny as all hell swirled around her in teasing ribbons of ecstasy. She couldn’t help but breathe him in with every inhale.

His long fingers slipped beneath her chin and tilted her face up to his. “At your request, I am here.”

She opened her eyes and her next breath got caught in her throat. Whoa!

Jet black, wavy hair draped his broad shoulders, and framed his porcelain face. Mid-high cheekbones and a narrow-bridged nose added to the perfection of his features. Accented by a fan of thick black lashes, bright, exotic eyes that shimmered like the ocean were fixed on her.

Plainly put, this man was crazy hawt, a real stunner. Never in her life had she seen a man, or woman, so incredibly beautiful. He was unreal. Just looking at him made every muscle in her body tingle, every nerve quiver and her lady needs increase. “Demetri?” she whispered, giving into the shudders darting up and down her spine.

His plush lips curved up into a sexy smirk, enhancing his beauty as he slowly removed her shades. “Hello, Angel.”

Happy Friday, friends! Thank you for swinging by.

Some weeks ago, I promised to post the progress photos, showing how Kyle “K-Boogie” Chaney created the image of Rayne in her full transformed form. I got wrapped up with writing and editing and totally forgot my promise. Sorry about that.

Better late than never, aye? 😉

Now, for your viewing pleasure…

Devil’s Heart from Scattered Flames #ASMSG #SaturdaySnippet #ParanormalRomance #Erotica

Happy Valentine’s Day, Lovers! Here’s a little snippet from my upcoming release, the 3rd book in The Dragon Queen Series, SCATTERED FLAMES. Enjoy!

YN_logo_White

Latching onto her flailing arm, Maurisio grumbled, “I see those wings are gonna be a problem.”

Rayne wasn’t sure how to use them yet, but they clearly responded to her emotions. The pain he’d blocked out came back full blast. Her head whirled. For a moment, she couldn’t breathe. The anger growing within tripled in size. It joined forces with the desperation crawling under her skin.

Jerking back, she growled in a fit of rage. She felt like an animal, trapped, bounded against her will. Gotta get away. Gotta get to him. “Let me go!” Her wings flapped with her motion. “Get your damn hands off me!” Wind gathered beneath her feathers, giving her the force she needed to pull away from him.

“Stop!” Sliding across the pavement, he held her firm by the arms. “Stop struggling, Rayne. I’m not letting you go.”

“I know what you’re doing,” she hissed, her voice deepening as she spoke.

“Don’t you see I’m trying to help you? I’m not your enemy!”

“You’re trying to keep me away from him.”

“Away from who?”

The question seized her. There was a hidden meaning behind his words, a meaning she didn’t like.

“If I let you go, who would you go to?”

Frozen in place, she blinked a few times. Her lips parted. Instead of an answer, a shaky sigh left her body. Who would I go to? The answer was clear in her mind, yet at the same time, smudged in the black abyss of her thoughts.

Maurisio’s gaze darkened, tears welled beneath his lids. He lifted her off her feet and yanked her against him, where their faces mere inches apart. “You have no idea where my brother’s being held ‘cause you can’t feel his location. He doesn’t exist in this realm anymore. His soul link has been severed, which is the only way our family bond could’ve been broken. So, what name lingers on your mind? Tell me, Rayne! Who does your demon desire?” His venomous words stabbed her in the heart as his fangs lengthened. “In his absence, who would you go to?”

Lucius. The name crept into her thoughts like a sly serpent. Lucius. Ice cold need rushed through veins and stilled her heart. Lucius! She needed Demetri with every fiber of her being, but somewhere deep inside… I want Lucius!

Fangs clenched, she spat out, “Fuck Lucius!”
