    About the Book:

    Dr. Jason Ayers unleashes all of his rage and his frustration through fists and brute force in an underground boxing ring. The werewolf may be the pack’s doctor, but he can’t even heal his coma-stricken father after the Nero Organization’s attack stopped his heart. And as his Pack brothers settle down around him, he still refuses to believe in the fairy tale notion that every wolf has a true mate…

    In hiding and on the run, nurse Kilani Akamu is a loose end that Nero is desperate to tie up. She can’t afford to be attracted to a doctor—especially one as unexpectedly hot and complex as Jason. Yet the sexual sparks arcing between them are undeniable…and Kilani’s precognitive senses warn her that temptation is inevitable.

    All it takes is one touch to send Jason’s wolf howling. But even if he could protect her from Nero, he can’t protect her from himself…

    A war is brewing; the Tribunal wants to possess her. And one Reaper will give his soul to love her.

    Victor is the Reaper over Violence he doesn’t do warm and fuzzy. He definitely doesn’t do damsel in distress. But apparently Dante didn’t get that memo. And Elle was most defiantly a damsel in distress.

    Now he only needs to can keep her alive long enough to find out who wants to kill her? And why the hell did the Tribunal want her so badly?

    Elle was having a really bad day.
    Amazon Smashwords Kobo Print BN

    He had almost lost her today and something deep in his chest had broken lose at the thought of losing her, and he just needed to feel her close to him. He would be damned straight to hell itself before he walked away from her right now.
    So he kissed her, he wrapped his arms around her slippery body molding her against him under the pounding hot spray of water. Slanting her full lips over his, pressing them open he sank his tongue into her mouth to tangle with hers. She moaned into his mouth and wrapped her arms around his neck, making it easier to sink further into the kiss.

    Victor lost himself in the kiss. The feel of the woman in her arms, full breasts pressed against him. And he grew light headed with desire; he broke the kiss to drag air into his starved lungs.

    She tasted like warm sunshine, and the second he could breathe, he dipped his lips back to hers. Elle moaned into his mouth and Victor was lost, he thrust his tongue deep into her mouth, rubbing against her and drawing her tongue into his mouth he sucked on it. Drawing her unique taste and flavor into his mouth. Memorizing her, gods he couldn’t get her taste deep enough into him. She made the most amazing sounds as he drifted from her mouth to the side of her neck. Elle burrowed into him resting her head against his chest, he thanked the gods he had left his boxer briefs on. As he tried to control the urge to press her against the shower wall and take her.

    “Elle.” Her name came out more as a moan.

    I blotted my Petal Pink lips on a piece of memo paper and capped the lipstick.


    Trying to retrieve the tube with the tip of my open-toe heel, I only succeeded in pushing the lipstick farther away. “Ugh.”

    Unable to bend that far in my pencil skirt, I hiked the hem up to my thighs and crawled on all fours, shimmying my behind, then stretching my arm till my fingers finally gripped my favorite lipstick.

    That’s when I heard a low, masculine whistle from someone standing behind me.

    Scooting back, I shot off the floor and slid my hemline back to my knee, all under the steady gaze of Paxon Nightwing, silhouetted by the sunlight that filtered into the foyer of Linden and Burke.

    Towering above me with jet-black hair and matching sharp-edged wings, wearing a charcoal button-down, black slacks, and a devilish smile, his voice crooned when he spoke. “Now that’s what I call a warm welcome.”

    “I, um, well, I…”

    He extended a bronzed hand. I reached out with my right, nearly dropping the lipstick again. I shifted it to my left hand. “I like pink.”

    I like pink? I like pink! For God’s sake, Ella. How old was I? Five?

    His extended hand engulfed mine, then he drew our bodies closer. Grinning wide and stroking his thumb across my knuckles, his melodious voice sounded sultry and sinful.

    “So do I.”

    I blinked stupidly till my brain started functioning again. He didn’t say a word, mesmerizing me with ridiculously deep brown eyes.

    “I’m, uh, Ella Barrow.”

    “Paxon Nightwing. Pleasure to meet you. But I think we’ve met before.”

    I tugged on my hand. He didn’t let go, tightening his hold.

    “Uh, well, I’m friends with Sorcha and Jessen.”


    I knew this guy was a player, the kind to make a girl swoon with a glance and charm the pants right off her. Literally. Jessen had even kissed him in a club once. And while his carousing behavior should make me want to run away, I couldn’t forget that Jessen had said on a scale of one to ten, his kiss was a ninety-nine.

    He still held my hand, angling his body closer. “I’ve also seen you at the Vaengar games. With Kerrington.”

    “Yeah. We’re, um, dating.”

    “That’s a shame.”

    I tugged again.

    He released me. “I have an appointment with Sorcha Nightwing.”

    “Yes. I know.”

    Pulling myself together, I pressed the comm device on my desk and cleared my throat. “Mr. Nightwing is here.”

    “Thanks, Ella. Show him to my office, please.”

    Rounding behind the desk, I gestured down the hall. “This way.”

    “After you.” A sly grin.

    I tilted up my chin, pretending I wasn’t afraid of him, then led him toward Sorcha’s office. I was good at pretending.

    As soon as I stepped in front of him, a primal shiver vibrated through my bones.

    His eyes were on me. I felt his gaze, as if his gaze were a caress, brushing up my legs, curving over my behind, rounding my hips to the dip of my waist and finally settling on the blond waves that fell past my shoulders. By the time we reached the door to the office, my heartbeat hammered in my throat.

    Gesturing for him to enter, I kept my eyes on the floor, trying desperately to regain control. He stopped in front of me, but I held my gaze until I realized I was fixated on his crotch. I jerked my head up. Amusement flickered across chiseled features. He was about to say something, but I didn’t give him the chance. I marched back up the hall to the receptionist area.

    About the Author:

    Juliette calls lush, moss-laden Louisiana home where the landscape curls into her imagination, creating mystical settings for her stories. She has a B.A. in creative writing from Louisiana State University, a M.Ed. in gifted education, and was privileged to study under the award-winning author Ernest J. Gaines in grad school. Her love of mythology, legends, and art serve as constant inspiration for her works. From the moment she read JANE EYRE as a teenager, she fell in love with the Gothic romance–brooding characters, mysterious settings, persevering heroines, and dark, sexy heroes. Even then, she not only longed to read more novels set in Gothic worlds, she wanted to create her own.

    Juliette is a multi-published author, including her Nightwing series with Kensington Publishing and The Vessel Trilogy with Samhain Publishing.

  • S is for Stolen Moments, Surprise new release by Cara Bristol!


    Meet Author Cara Bristol. I’ve read almost everything Cara has written! She’s an awesome person and writer. Here’s a great place to start…

    Hi Cara, tell us about your surprise release!


    This summer is my 6th anniversary as a published author of spanking fiction. In appreciation to my readers, Stolen Moments, a new romantic comedy /spanking romance, is available on Amazon for 99 cents and through Kindle Unlimited. Stolen Moments is my 20th book title!

    The characters and scenario are near and dear to my heart. The main character is a spanking romance author. No, not the heroine, the hero.

    The blurb:

    Is it crazy to be jealous of a fictional character?

    While Mary Sue is proud of her construction-worker husband Billy’s new-found success as an author of spanking novels, she also finds herself resentful of Beverly Golightly, the fictional heroine who gets everything Mary Sue wants: her man’s undivided attention, lots of hot loving, and many delicious spankings.

    But is Mary Sue’s jealousy any crazier than the plan she hatches to recapture her husband’s attention?



    “You should let me spank you. Then you can describe the sensation to me. If it burns or stings. How long the pain and color lasts.” He’d approached her after book number three, The Misfortunes of Beverly Golightly. All the Beverly books were named “Mis” something.

    So tempting. Hadn’t she fantasized about being spanked? When she’d discovered spanking romances, it had been like stumbling upon lost treasure. She couldn’t bring herself to confess that her interest in spanking ran deeper than reading about it. If he spanked her and she hated it, a beautiful fantasy would be ruined. On the flip side, if he spanked her and she loved it, she feared it would ignite a longing that would go unsatisfied most of the time. Billy’s interest in spanking was purely financial.

    “Absolutely not,” she’d said emphatically. “Besides, you don’t need me. You’ve been writing about it long enough.”

    “Well, yeah, but I got to wondering, maybe I ought to have some real-life experience to build some street cred.”

    “Then swat yourself. You’re not going to spank me.” Quite convincing she’d sounded too. If ever there’d been a time when she’d wished Billy had overridden her objections, that had been it.

    Mary Sue shredded a carrot and sliced a tomato to add to the salad.

    She’d decided if he brought it up again, in the interest of “research,” she would assist him. But, he never asked again. She sighed.

    Warm arms wrapped around her waist from behind. “Are you still mad at me?” Billy nuzzled her neck, his shadowed jaw prickly against her skin. When writing full steam, sometimes he didn’t shave for days.

    “No. I wasn’t mad. Just, well, you know.” She relaxed against his hard body. The one thing he did take time for was working out. He still went to the gym three times a week.

    “You smell good,” he said.

    “Shampoo,” she answered. Better than hamburgers, French fries, and onion rings. “Did you finish your book?”

    “The end!” he said.

    “That calls for a celebratory beer. Would you like one?” she offered. Reaching “the end” marked a milestone, not the finish line. Next, he would sequester himself to rewrite and revise what he’d already written, then he’d edit it, email it to a couple of author friends for beta reading, then forward it to his publisher, who’d send it back with suggested changes.

    For now, this evening, he was done—unless he stepped into his office for something and got sucked into the vortex.

    “I’ll get it.” He squeezed her in a hug, then released her to open the fridge. “What’s in the white container?”

    “Chicken-fried steak.”

    “My favorite!” His cheeks dimpled with pleasure, and the last vestiges of her irritation melted away. His large hands dwarfed the beer can as he popped the tab. Tossing his head back, he took a long, slow pull. Mary Sue watched him, enjoying the movement of his Adam’s apple as he drank. Billy had a killer smile and laughing eyes, a perfect-V torso, and a muscled physique. The accident and subsequent surgery had left him with a few jagged scars on his back, but they didn’t affect his good looks an iota. No one would ever guess this poster boy for machismo wrote romances under a female pseudonym. Of course, if they did, he might sell even more books.

    Mary Sue could envision female fans lining up in droves to meet him. She’d have to beat them off with a stick. And she wouldn’t hesitate to do it either. He’s mine. Keep your hands to yourself!




  • Space Cowboys & Indians: Asteroid Mining of the Final Frontier



    Last week I wrote about the Rosetta probe, the Philae lander, Comet 67P and how they influenced the writing of Space Cowboys & Indians. The heroes of SC&I don’t mine a comet however, they are attempting to be the first to mine the asteroid Amun.

    According to Mining The Sky: Untold Riches from the Asteroids, Comets and Planets by John S. Lewis, the asteroid Amun is a NEA (near-earth asteroid) only two kilometers in diameter, the size of a typical open-pit mine on Earth. What’s especially appealing about Amun is its makeup. Amun is projected to be made of a typical iron meteorite composition of iron and nickel with a mass market value of $8,000 billion. Another $6000 billion in cobalt and another $6000 billion in platinum-group metals. The total market value of that one small asteroid could be close to $20,000 billion.

    It’s no wonder several companies are scampering to get there or to other NEAs first. Money like that could fund all sorts of space firsts: space tourism, space colonies, space recreation.

    One of the very best articles I found on the subject is How Asteroid Mining Could Pay For Our First Space Colony. This one story really launched my plot. Pun intended.

    All you need is startup money and willing souls to make the trek. Here are a few space pioneers to follow if you are interested:

    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.
