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.”

Sex, Drugs, Rock n’ Roll… and Murder

Toshiro Matsuda, a tenacious Japanese inspector, is on the hunt for a serial killer who has left a trail of bodies across the globe. The latest victim was slashed backstage during a Scorpion Tail concert in a small town in Georgia.

The indie band’s wild, rebellious sound and dark lyrics catches Toshiro’s attention. He delves into the band members’ sordid pasts, and discovers that they are linked to the most recent victim.

MonaLisa–aka Queen Sting–the lead singer, hatches a plan to distract the inspector in order to protect her band brothers. In a turn of events, she becomes attracted to him. She wants to give in, but if she acts on her desire, Toshiro may uncover the secrets she keeps, and that will put her band at risk.

Toshiro was never one to fall for seduction, but there is something about the sassy rock star that intrigues him. However, he is not the only one who is fixated on her.

Will Toshiro be able to catch the killer, before MonaLisa is added to the kill list?

Scorpion Tail Excerpt

Smoke and Strawberries

“What do you have over these cops? Have you given favors to them all? Even the chief? Is that why you carry on like you own the place?”

MonaLisa swirled around and cocked her head to the side. “Hold up. Did you just call me a whore?”

Toshiro shrugged. “If the shoe fits…”

The smile she offered was full of malice. “Ooo, what a trashy prince you are. You’re just begging for my attention, aren’t you? Well you got it. Consider yourself on my radar.”

On her radar? Is that a threat? In a flash, he was in her face. With his hand braced against the wall behind her and the other wrapped around her arm, he pinned her to the building. Despite the position he had her in, she continued to puff away on her cancer stick, which in turn, infuriated him further.

Toshiro snatched the cigarette from between her lips, threw it on the ground and stomped on it. Noses inches apart, he breathed in her aroma. She smelled of smoke and strawberries. The combination disturbed him, more so because it also aroused him. She confused his senses, made him feel things he wasn’t quite sure of. This close, he could see the specks of gold lining her chocolate brown irises. They shimmered like stars. Aside from her face, it was one of the prettiest things he’d ever seen.

What are you doing, Toshiro?

He swallowed the lump easing up his throat. “After I catch my perp, I’m going to make it my business to bring you and your band of thugs down.”

“Is that right?” Her eyelids fluttered, her breathing wavered. “A’ight then.” She flicked her tongue out and swept it over his lips. “Game on, Mah-soo-dah.”

He scrambled back, nearly falling over the hood of a police cruiser. A heatwave rushed over him and settled in his groin. Wiping at his mouth with the back of his hand, he glared at her. His lips quivered, his cock throbbed.

She released a deep, sultry laugh. “Ohh, you’re just too easy. Gotta toughen up if you’re gonna pick fights with me. Catch ya’ later.” Her swaying rear end taunted him as she headed for the shiny royal blue and white antique vehicle.

If he wasn’t mistaken, it was a Plymouth Fury. Couldn’t give her credit for lady-like behavior, but at least she had good taste in cars.

She spun around on a playful twirl and dared to light another cigarette. “Just remember, Inspector Mah-soo-dah…” She took a draw from the end and winked at him. “When you bust, I’ll bust harder.”

His chest drew so tight he could hardly breathe. What was pure rage manifested into something explosive, something he couldn’t control. “That is it!” As his feet carried him forward, his mind went blank.

Saturday Teaser 2 #ScorpionTail #FadeToBlack #ASMSG #ComingSoon

A snippet from SCORPION TAIL (Fade To Black) **COMING SOON**

ScorpionTail_fbcover

Alicia lumbered into the kitchen, yanked the fridge open and grabbed a bottle of milk. The light within cast a glow over the round table by the window. The gleam brought a dark figure into view. At first, it looked like a harmless shadow.

But then, it moved.

Her heart lunged up into her throat. Gasping, she scurried backwards. The bottle fell from her grip and cold liquid splashed over her feet.

A deep sigh-filled exhale came from the shadow. With it, a smoky scent drifted by her nose.

Eyes glued on the intruder, she inched over to the wall and flipped the switch. The single ceiling light flickered on. Her mouth went dry and her body tensed.

Seated at the table, dressed in all black, was Becca. Legs crossed, he gazed out the open kitchen window as he puffed away on a cigarette. His long hair concealed the sides of his face, making him appear as nothing more than a silhouette. Black leather gloves covered his hands, which meant one thing. He didn’t want to leave any fingerprints.

Gun. She had it hidden in the cabinet above the fridge. How could she get to it, without sparking his suspicions? “How did you get in here?” Stupid question, but it was the only thing she could think to say at the moment. She’d never been this scared in her life. His presence alone shook her to the core. “Are… are you here kill me?”

He breathed out a stream of smoke, then finally turned and fixed those eerie, bright on her. “That’s entirely up to you.” Using his foot, he pushed the chair adjacent from him out from the table. “Have a seat.”

Feast your eyes…

PassionUnleashedSerenityKing

Cover artist: Tara at https://fantasiafrogdesigns.wordpress.com

Caught between Fate and Passion, Nylora finds herself trapped in a world of the unknown. Her best friend, Uta Thurmaine, warned her to stay away from Max’s bar, but she doesn’t heed her words. Will Nylora’s encounters change the course of her life forever? Or will Passion and fate collide, thrusting her into the point of no return?

In the wake of a blood feud within the family, Costin Riszen has watched over the human-Nylora for some time now. When Nylora disappears into the night, it will take all Costin possesses to find her and keep her safe—even if it means binding her to him forever to do so.

Passion Unleashed: Nylora’s Fate *Unedited Excerpt*

Despite Uta and Stefan’s warnings against going to Max’s alone, Nylora had decided to throw caution to the wind and have a night out. She needed it. She’d been working extra hard at the business that she’d practically been running herself since Uta and Stefan had gotten together. Nylora didn’t mind. She liked the fine Mr. Stefan Ascott, even if Nylora did find him a bit eccentric and at times over protective. Very protective of Uta.

Nylora had a feeling that she should have heeded her friend’s warning. For the first time since she began coming to Max’s, she was a bit uncomfortable. She just had a feeling in the pit of her stomach that all was not well. That coupled with the feeling someone was near. Nylora kept thinking that someone was standing in front of her, but no one was. Strange feelings she was having tonight.

She suddenly felt a slight burst of wind next to her that caused her to tremble and wrap her arms around herself as one would trying to keep warm. The only problem was she was in a building and not sitting next to any window or the door. “So what the hell was that?” she whispered, and couldn’t contain the shiver that spread across her. “Time to go. My grandmamma said when that happened someone had walked over your grave.”

Nylora got up and tried to make her way over to the door to leave; however her departure was hindered when she accidently bumped into someone and stumbled back. A long arm staked out and grabbed hold of her to prevent her fall. Instinct caused her to look up at the person who had saved her from being even more embarrassed than she already was, and gasped. The liquid silver eyes of her savior pulled her deeply into their depths. Mouth agape, Nylora could only stare into his eyes. That was until she saw the smirk on his face. ‘Oh brother,’ she thought. ‘Just another loser thinking he’s going to score.’ She pushed away from him and quickly made her way to the door and outside.

“Oh damn. Tonight was not the night to park down the block, Nylora,” she chastised herself. She’d gotten a quarter of the way down the block when she got a strange feeling that someone was following. She looked on either side of her and behind her and didn’t see a soul. Nylora knew from experience that just because you couldn’t see something didn’t mean that it wasn’t there. Her hand went to her cell phone case and began to push the razor that she kept hidden in the homemade slit, and rapidly used her thumb to push the razor out and into her hand.

There it was again. The feeling that someone was following her, only this time she thought she heard laughter. Fear began to set in causing her to quicken her steps—straight-razor at the ready.

Quickly looking back, Nylora still didn’t see anyone—yet the sinister laugh came again. This time the laughter was more prominent. “I’m not going down without a fight,” she said to no in particular, and then stopped in her tracks at the sound of her friend screaming her name. “Uta?” she cried, quickly turning around. No sound came out at all as her world suddenly turned black.
