Novel Snippet!

Scattered Flames ~ The Dragon Queen Series

The downpour had let up some, but it continued to drizzle. Lazy clouds drifted across the sky, covering and uncovering the sun. They would be forced to rely on the leaves, along with the cloak she’d borrowed from the priestess for shade.

The mysterious magic weaver’s unexpected visit this morning invaded her thoughts. Like a divine dream, the sorceress appeared in her bedroom. She’d broken through the spiritual barrier cast around headquarters, without alerting any of her teammates. Even Cain, who slept soundly next to her, was unaware of the woman’s presence.

Havoc vividly remembered her appearance.

Dark amber dreads dangled past her waist and stormy brown eyes peered into her soul. “You’re going to need this if you expect to bring him back alive.” As the priestess stared down the barrel of Havoc’s double gauge pistol, she tossed the cloak onto her bed and bowed. “May the Gods be with you, young huntress.”

A moment after the priestess vanished, a penetrating pain brutally assaulted her. Her throat-searing scream followed. Havoc ran a hand over her chest, remembering the feeling of something alien being shoved into it. She’d never felt anything like it before.

Her teammates bombarded her with questions after the incident. How did you tell a pack of supernatural hunters that you had a blood connection to a vampire—namely the worse vampire of all—and that you had to bail out in the darkness of the morning to go to that particular vampire because he was in danger?

She couldn’t, so she didn’t.

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.”

Sharayna ‘Rayne’ Piers lives a life in the spotlight as one of the hottest singers around. Beneath her life of stardom a dark threat rises within her thoughts and an unnatural hunger seduces the very core of her. Visions of women getting brutally murdered by an unseen force tortures her mind. When women near her age begin to disappear all over the world, she realizes that her nightmares have somehow become reality. Her life takes an unexpected, but deliciously sexy turn when she is approached by the beautiful demon vampire, Demetri Bithanos. He awakens her dark side and gives her the only thing that will sate her deepest craving. Blood. But her moment of euphoria doesn’t last. The dark lord Lucius — the spawn of the devil — is after her sacred blood and he will do whatever it takes to get her.

An artist at his best! #FanArtFriday #FantasyArt

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…

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!

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!”
