Can a single kiss change your life?

 

Businessman Cole Dunbar stays focused inventing the latest techno gadgets. When he learns of his deceased wife’s betrayal, he shuts the door on any personal relationships. There’s just one problem—the sexy Dina Wright who lives down the hall. He can’t keep her out of his thoughts and fantasies. When he sees her frightened on a New York City street, he tosses aside his reservations and reaches out to her.

Dina is high on life. Not only is she starting an advertising agency and her best friend is returning to NYC, an honest-to-God hunk is sending her spine-tingling looks. Despite past betrayals interfering, the budding romance picks up momentum, but Mother Nature spins her wrath. Amidst the chaos, Dina vanishes.

Excerpt:

A single gunshot echoed in the night.

An invisible death-grip tightened his throat. The road and buildings warped. Sound faded. Cole’s fear came to fruition, the worst moment of his life.

He needed eyes on Dina now!

Cole forced his legs to move faster into the darkness. The small amount of glow, seeping around the trailer from the junker’s headlights, gave him a visual to the only other intact car, parked next to the overturned truck.

The cloud pattern shifted and the moon brightened the darkened sky. Beyond the downed trailer, demolished truck, past the crinkled unmarked car, hope soared, clenching Cole’s heart and stealing his breath. He stopped and stared, not sure if he could believe his eyes.

The moon spotlighted Dina standing in the middle of the wreckage, staring at the road, her body shaking. Fright and pain visible in her profile felt like a bullet to his chest, forcing the wind out of his lungs and weakening his muscles.

Her gaze left whatever caught her attention and she peered over her shoulder. Their eyes locked. In that moment of time, no one else existed, not the swirling bright blue and red lights approaching or the loud sirens demanding attention.

Too afraid if he ran, his legs would give out from the overwhelming emotions, he walked toward her.

Not moving her gaze from his, she pulled her lips inward and wiped a hand across her face. She’d been through so much. Instinctively, he wanted to pull her to him, feel her warmth against his chest. Afraid sudden movement might scare her, he tempered his urge and stopped in front of her. “Awe, babe.” He stroked a finger down her cheek and searched her face.

Tears welled in her eyes, and something more frightening smeared across her skin—a reddish-brown color—blood

Work In Progress: Space Cowboys & Indians

shutterstock_64087615I may have gone slightly mad.

I’ve been working feverishly on a sci-fi romance, which I’ve named Space Cowboys & Indians. So far, it’s been really fun. I’m a couple hundred words shy of 20K and expect it to end up around 60K, which is near 250 pages. It will be available in e-book and print sometime this year.

SC&I is a mashup of the movies Cowboys vs Aliens meets Six Days Seven Nights.

Right now, my hero and heroine still hate each other. That’s fixin’ to change :D

Be prepared for space tourism, asteroid mining, Mescalero Apache Indians, aliens, Roswell, NM, time travel and romance. I see it as a trilogy.

Spotlight on The Martini Club 4 Series

Downton Abbey Meets Sex in the City: 

New releases from Amanda McCabe, Alicia Dean, Kathy L Wheeler, and Krysta Scott…The Martini Club 4 Series.  Four stand-alone, related novellas centered around a speakeasy based on a gathering place—the Martini Lounge in Edmond, Oklahoma—where the four friends meet every Friday for martinis, conversation, and lots of laughs.


MC4 New Banner

Four young English women discover friendship, romance, and danger in 1920’s New York City…

  • Jessica:  An aristocratic reporter with a penchant for trouble, she encounters sexy, mysterious Frank Markov, owner of an elegant new speakeasy and a man with secrets she’s dying to uncover. ~ Rebellious – Book 1 
  • Eliza: She fled England in pursuit of a better life, but her illusions are shattered when she falls prey to a scoundrel who draws her into a life of prostitution. When she meets Vince Taggart, a former boxer in search of his missing friend, she finds hope and the promise of love. ~ Ruined – Book 2
  • Margaret: Her impulsive nature lands her face-to-face with gangsters and bootleggers. Even more disarming is her undeniable attraction to the enigmatic Harry Dempsey. ~ Reckless – Book 3
  • Charlotte: Her dreams of owning her own bakery crumble when blackmail and murder land at her feet. Is the dashing detective her ruin or her salvation? ~ Runaway – Book 4

Excerpt: Jessica turned back to look at the building.  The windows stared down at them in blank darkness, and she could only hear the faint roar of traffic from Broadway, a woman’s shrill laughter, a cat howling from behind a trash can.

“No, not from here,” she said.  But she saw the shallow flight of stone steps Meggie had told them to look for, leading down to a shadowy doorway.  “Come on!  We’ll be late.  Maybe Eliza is already waiting.”  Eliza had said she would meet them there after her shift at the factory, though they hadn’t seen her for a while.

She tugged Charlotte down the steps after her and knocked three times on the door.  A tiny, grilled window set high above her head slid open.

“The elephant’s eyebrows,” she said, repeating the passwords she’d been given.  Obviously, someone there had a weird sense of humor.

The window slammed shut, and for several long seconds there was no sound except that distant hum of cars and the pounding of Jessica’s heart.  Had she done it wrong?  Had she come this close to finding a real story, to finding her shipboard Romeo again, only to be turned away?

Excerpt:

Lord Renwald bellowed, then fell to his knees, one hand on his head, blood seeping between his fingers. His mouth gaped like a fish, his eyes wide and agony-filled. He reached his free hand for her and nearly gripped her skirt, but she jumped back, out of his reach. He frowned as if perplexed, then thudded to the floor—still as a corpse.

Eliza stood frozen for a moment. Her entire body trembled. Warm stickiness coated her fingers. She’d killed a man. Not just a man, but an Earl. Dear Heaven, she’d killed him. If they caught her, she’d be put to death. The realization jolted her from her trance. She dropped the vase and rushed to the door, flinging it open. She raced down the hallway, to the stairs that led to the lower floor. Nearly flying, she hurried down the steps, past the wide-eyed stares of the other housemaids, and opened the cubby. Just as Maud promised, the valise was inside. Eliza snatched it and rushed to the back door. Her heart ached that she hadn’t had a chance to tell Maud goodbye, to thank her. But she’d promised the woman she would run and never look back. She didn’t know where she would go, or how she would get there, but she knew she would never return.

Excerpt: Shadows loomed, and every so often a match struck, and the red-tipped glow of a cigarette illuminated a face. Meggie pulled a deep breath to steady her jumpy nerves. Adapted her mind into her stage persona mode.  Forced a casual stride. It occurred and surprised her in how comfortable the oxford-styled uppers were compared to the toe-choking heels she wore nightly. She shoved her hands deep into the pockets of her coat.

The closer she grew to Club 501 the tighter her stomach knotted. She reached the block and crept around the building, nerves taut as the gory details relayed by Jess and Charli in her head like the film with Ramon Navarro she and Jess had seen, only the scene in her head appeared in vivid colors. The most dominant being red.

Fingers clenched to stop their trembling, she hugged the side of the building. Nothing.

She didn’t know whether to be relieved or furious after all of her and Georgie’s painstaking efforts.

Just as she let out a dejected sigh, a truck rolled in with the lights cut. Meggie sank to the ground behind a row of bushes and watched. The overhead door to Club 501 raised and Butch hurried out, Harry following in his more deliberate gait. A hundred bats flew into motion deep within her abdomen. Could she do this? Eliza. Eliza needs help.

Excerpt: “I-I have nothing to say to you.” She whirled and marched away from the expectations that had besieged her since the day she was born. Arranged marriages had been outdated since the early 1800s, even in England.

Heart thumping, breathing shallow, Charli escaped. From him. From her previous life.

Loud, firm steps thundered behind her. What had she expected? The man had followed her from London. Fury pressed through her veins. Well, that was his choice. She hadn’t asked him to look for her. But she couldn’t…wouldn’t go back to that life. She walked faster. Almost running, but strong fingers curled about her arm, jerking her to a stop.

“Charlotte.” He gasped for air. “What the devil are you doing?”

“Getting away from you.” Her hand flew to her mouth. Had those words just come out of her? Only six months in New York, and she’d gained gumption. From wherever the fortitude rose, she embraced it. Clung to it. Needed it. She yanked her arm from his grip, and before he could stop her, continued down the sidewalk. “Leave me alone.”

“Why are you being so obstinate?” His voice echoed in the quiet of the night. Still, he trailed her. The familiar entrance to her flat lay only two blocks ahead. She pushed to close the distance—between Geoffrey and her old life—to reach her haven.

Blurb:

They see death. Can they share a life?

Ruth Scott can read the energy of every person she meets. Then she meets Deacon Walker. She can see his ice-blue eyes, his black hair, and his gorgeous face. But this beautiful stranger has no aura.

Deacon is just as unsettled by Ruth—and, having spent more than two hundred years ushering souls to Purgatory, Deacon is seldom shocked by anything. As he helps Ruth to understand her true nature, she awakens desires that he decided long ago a Reaper can’t afford.

A demon invasion forces Deacon to confront the darkness in his own past even as he fights to save the human souls he’s charged to protect. When he’s taken captive, his first concern is for Ruth. But Ruth just might be able to save herself—and the Reaper she can’t live without—if she can learn to wield her newfound powers.

All her life Ruth Scott, has been able to read the energy of every person she meets. She can read their auras. Each color represents a different emotion, yellow is happy, green is peaceful, and the worst is white, which means death. Now she finds herself in a hospital where her mother, her last living relative is dying. All her life Ruth and her mother have been at odds. When she first told her mother about seeing other people’s auras, her mother turned away from her.

When Ruth lost her father, she lost the only person who really loved her. Since his death she and her mother have been estranged, but she will not let her mother die alone. After her mother dies, she leaves to make arrangements for her funeral when she knocks into a man, Deacon Walker, a reaper and on the way to retrieve Ruth’s mother’s soul. It hits her right away that the man has no aura and she isn’t sure what that means. In the meantime, Deacon realizes Ruth is more than a human since she, too, has no aura. It is possible she is a reaper like him, but is totally in the dark about what she is?

Deacon ushers souls to purgatory, at the same time he battles demons who try to poach souls to take to Hell. He has to find Ruth and figure out what she is. If she is a reaper, he has to train her. With more and more demons showing up, they can use all the reapers they can get. When Deacon confronts Ruth, she realizes her life will never be the same. When Deacon discovers Ruth was adopted, it becomes clear why she was never told about what she is.

Deacon takes Ruth on her first trip to purgatory to indoctrinate her about her new position. While there, they run into Kylen. Kylen and Deacon were once best friends, until Kylen made a deal with a demon. He was willing to allow the demon to inhabit his body if the woman he loved, Kara’s, soul was sent to purgatory instead of Hell. When she was killed, the demon managed to procure her soul before Deacon or one of the other reapers could. He made a deal with the devil, and now he is lost to Deacon. Deacon has never given up hope he can save his friend.

Deacon and Ruth enlist the help of Nate, a witch who is able to place a protective shield around Ruth’s house. Once Kylen discovered Ruth’s importance to Deacon, she became a target. Deacon and Ruth fall in love, but they are constantly fighting off demons. When Deacon is taken to Hell, Ruth knows she needs Nate and Kylen to free him. But first they have to free Kylen from the demon. Ruth has a lot ahead of her and she needs to learn about being a reaper very quickly, because time is not on her side.

I loved this story and especially the characters. There was romance, sex, demons, angels, reapers, and even a witch. It was a constant battle of good against evil and war is on the horizon. In spite of it all, there was always a touch of humor. There were also some tense scenes, especially those that take place in Hell. The author does a great job of scaring the heck out of you with her description of Hell. I highly recommend this book and can’t wait to start the next one. There is no cliffhanger, and to that I say HOORAY!

THE REAPERS – 2

5*****Stars

 

Novel: Reap & Redeem

Series: Reaper – Book 2

Author: Lisa Medley

Publisher: Harlequin

Genre: Urban Fantasy/Romance

Rating: Adult     

 

In book two of the Reaper series, we are once again reunited with Nate, Ruth, Deacon, and Kylen, who was finally freed from the demon who had possessed him. Ruth and Nate were able to save Kylen, only in this book we learn what his freedom meant to him and how he is handling it. He was possessed for a hundred years, so it is unknown if the evil he lived with is completely gone. Does he still have a link to the dark side?

Now that he is free, he has only two desires, a death wish and revenge. He has become a demon killing machine and killing them is all he has left. He still mourns for Kara, the woman whose soul he saved when he allowed the demon to possess his body. He is also angry with Deacon, the man who was his best friend. Deacon had promised to never allow a demon to take control of his body. He would do his best to kill the demon and release Kylen from his possession, only it was something Deacon couldn’t get himself to do because he never stopped believing he could save his friend.

One night Kylen hears screams coming from an alley. When he arrives, there is a demon about to possess a girl. Kylen saves her life and brings her to Ruth’s house where it doesn’t take long for them to realize she is surrounded by a white aura and is near death. Her name is Olivia and she has a rare form of bone cancer that is killing her. Since his freedom, Kylen has lost his ability to see auras and can no longer see colors. His world is all in shades of grays until he holds Olivia’s hand. When he touches her, he realizes that he is giving her his energy. He, in turn, can see the colors around him. When he is not touching her his world is once again gray.

Nate, Ruth, and Deacon are now all living together and Kylen has a trailer outside their house. He still feels a connection to Hell and to the Imps that keep following him and taking his orders. Is he willing to give himself over to good? Is he still fighting not going back to the evil he lived with for one hundred years?

Deacon has been promoted and is now able to consume the demons. They can finally be destroyed before taking a new body. War is coming; more and more demons are showing up. Portals are popping up all over and the Reapers are having a tough time fighting them all. In spite of the infusions of energy from Kylen, Olivia is losing her battle with cancer. Once again is filled with anger. How can the powers that be allow her to fall into his life and then make him care about her? Is he once again going to have to watch a woman he cares about die?

There is trouble brewing. Evil is trying to take over and good is fighting them tooth and nail. On the brighter side, Ruth is pregnant and a new life is on its way. I loved watching Kylen’s fight to not give into his dark side. I loved watching how he tried desperately not to fall in love with a woman who he knows he will soon lose. Nate has become part of the family and is joining in the fight in any way he can. Although there is no doubt the book will continue to follow all the characters the book does have a good ending.

Spotlight on Rachael Slate’s Trancing the Tiger: A Chinese Zodiac Romance

Today I’d like to welcome author Rachael Slate with her new release Trancing the Tiger: A Chinese Zodiac Romance

Blue blur background

Delve into a world steeped in tradition and superstition…

After her parents become infected with the Red Death, Lucy Yeoh flees to Malaysia seeking answers. Everything in this closed-off section of the world is paradise—from the lush tropical climate to her sexy new neighbor, Sheng…who just might be delusional. He claims the Plague God unleashed the Red Death and only a circle of Chinese Zodiac spirit animals can cleanse the Earth. Even more, he insists she’s one of them: the Rabbit. Long furry ears and fluffy bunny tail included.

He’ll show her how to fight to save the world…

As the Chosen of the Tiger, the burden of restoring balance to the world has fallen onto Li Sheng’s shoulders. When he discovers that the ally he’s long awaited, the Dragon, is actually just the Rabbit, Sheng is quick to dismiss Lucy. If only she’d stay dismissed. Lucy’s Rabbit refuses to cooperate, undermining the authority of his Tiger at every turn…and seducing him to the limits of his darkest desires. He’s not supposed to want her. Not when he needs the spirit circle complete and she’s their weakest link.

She’ll show him a love worth fighting the world to save…

Sheng’s enemies draw closer, and not everyone wants Lucy alive. Together, they’ll have to navigate a treacherous world where a line between duty and their hearts has been drawn between them. They must either sacrifice one, or find a way to surrender to both.

Reaper Redux: Heaven, Hell & the In-Between

Talking about world-building today again and some of the settings of the Reaper series.

grand-central-station-i8040

Purgatory 

This is the angel Rashnu’s domain. Rashnu is the sorter who sends the reaped souls to their final destinations after reapers deposit their cargo via a tube-like system inside Purgatory. There are many tunnels and tubes in the stone walls of Purgatory all leading to different destinations and levels of Heaven or Hell. Imagine if you will Grand Central Station completely underground and encased in stone. That’s Purgatory. There’s even a Star Wars-esque cantina where reapers—all sorts of reapers—can have a drink and share war stories.  Purgatory is members only and patrons need to be carrying a soul to enter or a.

 Excerpt from Reap & Repent

“Ruth opened her eyes to complete chaos. There were creatures everywhere. She would have been hard pressed to prove most of them were now or ever had been human. It was like the Cantina scene in Star Wars without the fun band. Ruth’s mouth gaped open. It was dark, foggy and damp in the long unground cave-like chamber. She’d never seen anything like it.

It was a depot of sorts with long tunnels crisscrossing and disappearing into the stone walls. The floors and ceilings were also rough stone and light from an unseen source emanated down through strategically positioned skylight structures along the ceiling. Creatures were everywhere. A scant minority of the occupants appeared to be human. There was so much to take in it was overwhelming. Chiseled placards demarked the top of each tunnel in a language she didn’t understand. At both ends of the main channel huge platforms rose above the fray and what looked like an angel, complete with a flowing purple robe, sat upon a stone throne.”

 

Heaven

Most of the story takes place on the earthly realm, Purgatory and Hell. We don’t get to see Heaven but we know there are levels of Heaven just like there are levels of Hell. One passes through them on their way to perfection.

Certainly something to strive for and about a bazillion times better than the alternative.

 

Hell 

The fallen angel Lucifer is the King of Hell. He has a palace and everything. You’ll get to see quite a lot of it actually.

The trip there: Excerpt from Reap & Repent

“They spun and sputtered through a long tunnel of red strobing light that made Ruth’s head hurt. Her stomach turned as she tried to close her eyes, but the light strobed against her retinas as intensely whether open or closed. They seemed to slide through the tunnel forever. It was much longer than was comfortable or than she ever traveled on her trips to Purgatory. A carnival ride gone bad.

When she was sure she was going to vomit, they crashed to a stop at a dusty crossroads. Red fog hung low as far as she could see which wasn’t very far at all. Nate landed hard but stood up quickly, dusting the red clay off his jeans. Kylen frowned as he looked down the road towards the red glow in the cloud-covered covered horizon.”

 

What they see when they arrive: Excerpt from Reap & Repent

They walked on for what seemed like several miles, enveloped in their manufactured auras. Nate maintained his with only an occasional push or touch from Ruth. He was getting stronger despite his reluctance to admit it. His calling was still unclear, but he’d already proven himself useful more than once with the powers he had. Who knew what other resources lay within him, waiting to emerge.

There was nowhere left to hide, and the closer they came to the palace, the fog began to dissipate. The place looked like an impenetrable fortress, complete with a moat of what appeared to be flowing lava.

Wonderful, Ruth thought.

A guard stood post at the main entrance. It was small and toadlike, an imp like the one Ruth had run through with a fire poker in her living room only a few days ago. It seemed like an inadequate guardian for such a tremendous palace, but then again, Ruth assumed that not too many folks were hot to visit this place of their own accord.
