Hey Everyone!!! 🙂

Have you ever had a terrible secret you didn’t want anyone to know? Petri does and it may get her killed. Life is hard on Upworld, especially for the residents of Under City, and it’s even harder for those who don’t fit in. Petri has alway been different and now those differences may cost her life. Her one hope is to leave the only home she’s ever known while evading the mob that’s calling for her blood. But Petri has never been outside of her sector of Under City, never mind off the planet. And the laws of Upworld forbid people like her from leaving. Will Petri overcome the odds and make good her escape? Maybe…with a little help from her friends.

Okay, okay, I know, enough stalling.  If you’re as excited as I am about this story, I know you’re all ready for a peek:

 

Rainbow Dreams Chapter One

 

Lightning bolts of fire and ice shot up and down Petri’s spine as she moved over the human man on the bed. Her short, slender body bowed with the sensations that washed over her. His lust was like a fountain of cold water on a hot day, and she was parched. It had been too long; she needed this. Desperately.

 

Looking down at him as she slid her body onto his straining cock, she smiled. This client had wanted to be blindfolded; he said he enjoyed the mystery. There was more mystery in Petri than most humans would know what to do with, so that was fine with her. With him blindfolded, she didn’t need to be careful to keep her own eyes shut. This was going to be a good feed, and there was no way she could have kept her eyes from glowing.

 

The man moaned in pleasure. Being fed upon felt as good for humans as feeding did for Petri. None of her clients knew she sipped from their energy, their life force, when she fucked them. All they knew was that she was one hell of a talented dolly. A win-win for all involved.

 

This client was a regular; Petri had shown him many times how good it could be with her. Some of her regulars came to crave her, almost like the dream dust that was sold in the club below. They were guaranteed repeat business, and she always made sure to show them a good time. After all, that was her job.

 

The energy of the man’s lust filled Petri as she glided up and down on top of him. She shivered. It was renewing, rejuvenating. She couldn’t get enough. A few grains of dust remained on his upper lip as evidence of his earlier indulgence in some of the chemical delights that were available at Abracadabra.

 

It was clear her client was high long before Petri started feeding. Before she blindfolded him, she had noted the man’s dilated pupils and the flush of pleasure on his face. She had no doubt the management of Abracadabra would go to great lengths to make sure he received the maximum enjoyment possible during his visit. There was a reason it was the hottest nightclub in this part of Under City.

 

The club specialized in hedonism in all its forms. Drugs of every description, games, gambling, and other, darker pleasures could be found within its walls. House dollies, little more than sex slaves, waited to fulfill the customers’ every desire. Freelance dollies, like Petri, rented space to ply their trade as well. The house allowed it because the dollies offered the club’s clientele more variety and were motivated to attract business. Once a patron had satisfied their lust, they often wandered downstairs in search of other entertainments.

 

Leaning down, Petri pressed her cat-like mouth to her client’s lips in a sizzling kiss. Their tongues tangled as he responded, and she undulated her hips against his, faster and faster. The drugs he had consumed tainted his energy, giving Petri a pleasant buzz. She never took dust herself since it interfered with her ability to control her power, but she enjoyed the effect when one of her johns indulged. As their sex intensified, Petri drank deeper, swallowing down the man’s whimpers and sighs of ecstasy as she swallowed his desire.

 

Lost in the haze of feeding for the first time in days, Petri didn’t realize it at first when the man suddenly went still underneath her. His penis remained stiff and eager inside her, and she continued to ride it, draining his energy. It was only when the cold, clamminess of his skin penetrated the pleasurable trance she often sank into when feeding that she realized that she had gone too far. Her heart skipped a beat.

 

Swinging her leg over him, she clambered off his body and knelt beside him on the bed. She grabbed his shoulder, shaking him, but there was no response. He was as still and cold as death.

 

Petri’s breath froze in her chest as she tried to suppress her rising panic. She slapped him, hard, across his face, trying to provoke a response. There was nothing. Leaning down, she put her ear against his chest, listening for something, anything. Any sign that a spark of life remained in the man. She wasn’t sure, but she thought she might have heard a faint fluttering within.

 

Taking a deep breath, she closed her eyes and put her hands on his chest, fingers splayed. She had never done this before, but her instincts said it might work. The process of drawing energy from others had come automatically when she reached physical maturity. It was as natural as breathing to her. But reversing the flow of energy… That was something else altogether. She forced herself to focus; all she could do was try.

 

Reaching down into the well of energy within her, Petri tried to snag a wisp of it. It was like trying to catch fog. Gritting her teeth, she concentrated and managed to grab a small piece of the mist and tease it up, out of herself and back into the man. It flowed at a slow trickle, but it did flow. The man took a deep breath and Petri slumped in relief.

 

Before she could stop him, or even turn away, the man reached up and snatched the blindfold from his face. When he saw her glowing eyes, he shrieked, “Mgeni!”

 

Petri swore. She knew she didn’t have much time. Sitting up, she sucker-punched her client hard in his stomach. The man folded over, clutching his gut, just like she knew he would. As her former client coughed and wheezed, Petri scrambled into her tight, red mini-dress and stiletto pumps and clambered out the window. She couldn’t risk trying to make it through the crowded club below; she needed to be gone before the man recovered enough to sound the alarm.

 

As she scurried down the fire escape, Petri cursed herself. She should have known she needed to be more careful. After having gone without feeding for several days, she shouldn’t have broken her fast in such a public place. At least he wasn’t dead. That was the one thing that might save her. If she had killed an Upworld client in Under City, the houses would have banded together and hunted her no matter where she went.

 

The funny thing about Under City was it could be a wild, crazy place, but only within certain parameters. In some ways, it was as restrictive as the world above. Upworld citizens were fair game for cons, beatings, muggings, pick-pocketing, and many other crimes. As long as the citizens left Under City breathing, the houses would look the other way. After all, most people from Upworld came to Under City for the thrill of danger, so, in many ways, the underworlders were just giving them what they paid for.

 

But too many deaths were bad for business and that the houses would not allow. The only reason an Upworld citizen could be killed in Under City with the blessing of the houses was if the citizen killed an underworlder without paying for it first. Life was cheap in Under City, but it wasn’t free. And no one left Under City without paying their bill. No one.

 

Even though the man was alive, Petri’s life was still in danger. She had survived thus far in Under City because everyone thought she was a Human/Paka hybrid. Half-breeds weren’t especially loved, even among the generally open-minded underworlders, but they were tolerated. Arcanum, on the other hand, were universally despised, and the glowing eyes and energy draining power were unmistakable. Petri was now a marked woman, and it wouldn’t be long before half the underworlders in the Southern sector were howling for her blood. She needed to get away.

 

The problem was where could she go? Each sector of Under City was isolated from the other sectors, and the only way to get from one sector to another was to travel through Upworld. And the only way underworlders were allowed into Upworld was if they had a pass. Even if she did manage to get to another sector, that would only be a temporary reprieve. Word would travel and her appearance was too distinctive for her to be able to disappear into a crowd of strangers.

 

No, the only possible way for her to survive was for her to find passage off-world. Petri grimaced. She might as well wish for the planetary presidency.

 

The moment she reached the ground, Petri looked both ways down the alleyway she was in. Everything seemed normal. The bass from club Abracadabra throbbed through the street, lending the night a syncopated heartbeat. The fast food dollies who worked the crowd outside the club seemed to be doing a brisk business. The groans and gasps of pleasure from their johns blended with the music.

 

Other than the regular street activity, nothing was happening. Maybe the hottest club in the sector wasn’t the worst place this could have happened. At least, she was central. It wouldn’t be hard to get anywhere in the sector from here; if she could only decide where it was she should go.

 

Hiding and lying low were out of the question. There were too many people in Under City who would be thrilled to earn a couple of easy creds by informing on her. Which also made going home impossible; that was the first place they would look for her. The distant rumble of a subway broke through her temporary paralysis and got Petri moving.

 

But she didn’t run. Running in Under City was never a good idea. Running meant trouble and attracted attention. Predators chased those who ran, and Under City was full of predators.

 

Neon signs glittered in the night, advertising the wares to be found in the many businesses in this central part of Southern sector. Outlines of naked men and women, frothing drinks and steaming food, new hairstyles, and more had been recreated out of glowing lights and buzzing bulbs. Abracadabra wasn’t the only purveyor of pleasures in the area; there were others, though each was smaller and had a narrower focus than the popular club. Brothels, restaurants, bars, dust dens, casinos, gaming establishments, salons, and chop shops abounded. This part of Under City existed to cater to the whims of the rich, and there was nothing subtle about the offerings that were available to those with money.

 

Shops of all kinds welcomed customers from Upworld with open arms. Clothing, children’s toys, vehicles, sex aids, personal electronics, game programs, jewelry, and domicile furnishings could be purchased right next to each other at any time of the day or night. “Come In!” flashed their advertisements. “Good Deals!” “Low Prices!” “Rare Merchandise!” A constant siren song of the consumerism that ruled the underworld.

 

There were also businesses with darker, less obvious entryways. The snuff industry was alive and well in Under City. Upworld citizens who had the creds could indulge their most twisted and violent fantasies, and there were snuff houses that specialized in providing those services. Fights, snuff porn, torture, cannibalism—it was all available for the asking. And no matter if a citizen wanted to watch, participate, or direct, their most hidden desires could be satisfied by the snuff houses. Customers were only limited by their bank accounts, and the grinders waited to clean up the mess afterwards.

 

Petri ignored all the enticements and offerings and tried to keep her mind away from where she might end up if she failed in her escape attempt. A short, brisk walk brought her to the transit station just as a train pulled up to the stop. It wasn’t a perfect solution, it wasn’t even a good solution, but at least it was a stopgap that might give her the time she needed to formulate a plan. Being a moving target was better than being a stationary one.

 

She hopped on the train and found an empty car. As she dropped into a seat at the back of the car, she sighed. It had started out as such a good night.

Blood Ties Paperback Giveaway

Hey Peeps!!

I’ve just set up another #Amazongiveaway and this time it’s for a paperback. Blood Ties, the first book in the Blood Trilogy can be winging it’s way to you! All you have to do is enter…no purchase necessary.

The paperback is a little bit special. I created custom lettering for the interior and it looks fab!

Here’s a sneaky peek! (warning…sizzling hot)

 

Sweat ran down Keagen’s muscular back as he pressed the female against the wall. His rock-hard body, with perfect proportions and stamina that would outlast a stable of thoroughbred racehorses, was nowhere near to flagging. He’d pounded the woman for the last hour, nonstop. The female on the receiving end of his attention cried herself hoarse more than twenty minutes earlier. She needed to rest, but large hands cupped her ass, supporting her weight, and only when he’d had enough would he let her down.

With the air-con turned up high the smell of fresh sweat and sex hung in the air. Keagen loved to fuck; he had some catching up to do after his sex-starved existence for the first part of his adult life. Puffing out a few quick breaths, he built up his pace. He was ready for a beer and wanted the woman out of his room.

Keagen was tall, muscular, and stronger than most men were, although he wasn’t exactly a man. His genes were human DNA with a hint of animal, courtesy of Solgen Laboratories. It wasn’t common knowledge what the company did, and their labs were all in secret locations. Only their financial backers knew where they were. Who supported them was unclear. Possibly the government, private military organizations, or even wealthy dictators; no one knew. You would not find any documentation about it. It wasn’t legal what they were doing, that’s for sure.

Keagen tracked and hunted escapees and always caught his prey, but just one eluded him, and it pissed him off. Nevertheless, he was closing in, and soon he’d return to base with his prize in tow. Given free reign to come and go as he pleased, Keagen enjoyed the freedom, and as long as he brought in the bounty, all was well. Sometimes out in the field for days or weeks at a time, he upheld contact by phone; a check-in, but he wasn’t worried. Sometimes he needed ‘Keagen’ time. Holed up at his secret hideaway, or a motel, where a steady stream of females frequented his room, he could easily fob off his supervisor. The geneticists made the mistake of giving him just a little too much intelligence. Consequently, his IQ already rivaled some of the top minds in the world, and he was smart enough to hide that fact from his testers.

Grunting and hissing through gritted teeth, Keagen screamed his orgasm as he fucked the flagging woman; those last deep thrusts into her satisfied pussy filling the room with a guttural cry. Throwing his head back, his wet hair slapped against his shoulders. The muscles in his thighs held the female firmly against the wall for a few moments until his hips finally stilled and finished jerking. Catching his breath, he rested his head against the cool plaster before releasing the sighing woman. As she tried to stand her knees buckled, but he quickly scooped her up and laid her on the bed.

While he left her to recover, he went into the bathroom and rested his hands on the vanity unit. Looking at his sweat-ridden face, his drenched hair clung to his skin. He grinned. The cold water refreshed his sweating skin when he splashed it over his face. Keagen took a minute to cool down before turning and leaning against the unit while wiping his face with a towel.

He’d heard that he was close, and tomorrow Keagen intended to introduce himself. In the meantime, he would spend the rest of the evening relaxing with a few beers now he’d satisfied his other needs. Appreciating the female’s attention, but ready for her to leave, he turned on the charm.

Returning to the bedroom where his latest conquest recovered, he smirked.

“Are you ready for another round?” Keagen knew the answer, but this was a tried and tested method. “I can go all-night.” Drawing nearer to the bed, he palmed his cock.

“It’s already gonna take me a week to recover, so I’m gonna have to pass.” The female rolled onto her side and watched his hand moving as her mouth curved into a slow, delighted smile.

Keagen frowned. “Aw, really?”

“I’ve never met anyone like you, but as much as I’d love to stay, I need to sleep.” She laughed and pushed off the bed to gather her clothing from the floor. While stepping into her panties, she looked up at him. “We’ll have to do that again, after I’ve recovered.”

“That would be great,” Keagen lied as he sidestepped to grab his pants from the chair. “You’re gonna think I’m an asshole, but I’ve forgotten your name.”

“Nah, I don’t. I can’t remember yours either.” She snorted.

“Ouch!”

“Welcome to the 21st century. I’m Ellie.”

Keagen beamed. “Beautiful name. It was a pleasure, Ellie.” He pulled a black T over a muscled chest and then smoothed thick hair into a ponytail, tying it with a band. “I’m Keagen. I’ll give you a ride home, seeing as though you’re having trouble walking.”

Ellie finished zipping up her dress and grabbed her purse before heading for the door. Keagen held it open.

“You’re a true gent.” Her heart raced at the thought of meeting for a follow up, but realistically she knew that wasn’t going to happen. Hot men didn’t fall into her lap that often, especially ones like Keagen.

Win Demon Within

A former slave who is now a feared warlord, a princess, a king, angels and fallen-angels make this an epic romance you will love from the start.

When the Seraphim ruled the heavens, a vain angel dared to risk everything for the love of a human and paid the price of eternal damnation.
Sold into slavery when he was six years old, Kai has never known love. As he reached maturity, his slavers realized Kai was no ordinary man. There was something else lurking inside. An uncontrollable force which feeds on his rage and anger giving him the advantage when thrown into the fighting pits of Darkmide to fight for his life. Here he learns that killing brings rewards when after each win he is given a female slave to sate his sexual needs.
After years of many victories and a life of pain under the lash, in a bloody battle Kai breaks free from his chains and releases all the slaves, and raging a war against the slavers, he kills them all. Closing down the goldmines in Darkmide, he vows no one else will die doing the backbreaking work of harvesting gold.
His deeds are famed throughout the lands, and after four years, he settles in Blackhill, a town not far from Darkmide, where he rules with a firm hand.
King Garlan from Brightstone, afraid of losing his throne to a threat from the Highlands, and hearing of Kai’s formidable reputation, sends his envoy to request an alliance with the infamous warrior. The agreement is to offer his daughters hand in marriage, Princess Eloise, in exchange for Kai’s support. Kai instantly falls for the beautiful princess and soon discovers he’s not the only one with a secret.

Stubborn and running away from confrontation, Kai is about to lose everything, and only his trusted friend, Sabe, shows him that his fears of dying alone will come to fruition unless he admits his need for love. Submitting to his needs, Kai and Eloise unite and the alliance forms once more.
A connection between Kai and a fallen-angel, who is systematically destroying all the nearby towns, is revealed, bringing the two of them together in a battle that could kill everyone in Blackhill and all those Kai cares for. He attempts to fight the fallen angel, but he is badly injured. In a twist of fate, Eloise is the key to aiding Kai and his friends to defeat the vengeful fallen angel.
Can Eloise save Kai and the town of Blackhill from the destruction of the fallen angel? What does the future hold for Kai?
Join Kai and his friends on an epic journey which takes you in to a world of angels and fallen

Sneak Peek to a hot n sexy BDSM new novel

Hey peeps!

I want to share with you a sneak peek from that talented author, Jordan Buchanan. She’s just recently released On The Job Training, and she’s given us an awesome snippet.

Excerpt from On-the-Job Training – Orientation

The sommelier, elegant in a tuxedo, brought our wine and poured for John’s approval. After receiving the nod, he poured for both of us. I’m no wine expert, but this sparkling white was fantastic. Even if I had to force myself, food was a necessity. Drinking on an empty stomach could lead to a disaster.

Without warning, John reached across the table and took my hand, his thumb stroking my palm. “Laura, am I deluding myself in thinking there’s something between us? Do you feel it?”

I nodded and took another sip. “Yes, I feel it.”

“Was that really hard to say?” His voice was soft but firm.

I grinned and deliberately shook my head instead of answering which made him laugh out loud.

“You know what you are? You’re a brat.” He raised my hand to his mouth and brushed his lips across my knuckles. “A smart, beautiful, talented, stubborn brat.”

The waitress picked that inopportune moment to bring our food, and it was almost delicious enough for me not to hate her. John cut into his steak, stabbed a morsel with his fork and turned to me. “Here, open up.”

“Mmm.” It was every bit as good as my chicken. “Would you like a bite of mine?”

“No, not of your chicken.”

Holy shit. This was getting more interesting by the minute. He fed me another bite before settling into eating it himself.  Under the table, my leg jiggled nervously, and I forced myself to be still. When I finished my wine, john casually refilled my glass. I looked at him, brows raised.

“You’re not driving, and it’s your day. Two glasses aren’t over your limit, are they?”

“Of course not! I can handle myself.” I took another sip to prove my point.  Maybe I was a brat.

He put his knife and fork down, wiped his mouth with his napkin, and leaned back in his chair with a sigh of contentment. I followed suit and shifted slightly toward him in my chair. “Did you enjoy your meal?”

“Very much, you?”

“Very good, thank you for bringing me here.” I hadn’t felt this awkward and gawky since I was fifteen. I lifted my chin and tried to brazen it out. “Do you have room for dessert?”

I’d never seen brown eyes blaze, but his did at that moment. “Not exactly,” he said, and reached for my hand again. “I’m going to ask you something. Regardless of what your answer is, know this. Your job is not on the line.  If you can look me in the eye and say you don’t wish to pursue a relationship with me, everything will go back to the way it was last week. Trust me. You do trust me, don’t you?”

“Yes.” I did. Although I’d known him for little more than a month, he was consistently a man of his word. Not only with me, but with his clients, subcontractors, and vendors

He leaned forward a bit. “Then tell me. What do you want, Laura?”

It was now or never.  I sucked in a breath and met his gaze directly. “I want to be with you, John.”

I saw relief wash over his features. “Thank God,” he murmured and closed his eyes briefly before locking them onto mine again. “There’s no right or wrong answer to my next question. Okay? Have you ever fantasized about being sexually submissive?”

Oh. My. God. He knew! How the hell did he know? I should laugh it off, right? How could I possibly admit my deepest, darkest desires to him? I opened my mouth to deny it and then snapped it shut. Oh great, now I look like a fish out of water–appropriate, yes; attractive, no. A memory of me in bed with Walt came to mind. It was one of the few times we’d spontaneously had sex without scheduling it beforehand. I’d pulled my nightgown over my head but left my arms in it, effectively creating my own sad form of bondage. Walt, oblivious as always, said, “Here, let me help you with that,” and pulled me free.

“Yes, I’ve always been curious.” If I never take the first step, I’ll forever be the woman trapped in her own bonds alone.

A smile, like the sun sliding out from behind a cloud, spread across his features. My heart was yammering in my chest. After years of waiting, I was being given an opportunity to experience what I’d only read about before. I didn’t know what to do; my mind was racing through my favorite scenes in every book in my collection.

“Laura? Earth to Laura?”

“Yes, um, Sir?” That part was easy. In the South, we’re taught from the cradle to say sir and ma’am.

He shook his head slightly. “You have no idea what it does to me when you call me that. Thank you. Don’t worry; we’ll start out slowly.”

“I have no idea what I’m doing.” I took another sip of my wine, my hands shaking slightly. I glanced around the restaurant; everyone else was eating, chatting, as if nothing were amiss. Why did I feel like a big neon arrow was flashing over our table?

“That’s the beauty of it, Laura. I’ll tell you what to do. You need only to do it.”

“Good.” My relief must have been evident on my face; it made him chuckle.

“Ready for your first command, brat?”

“Yes, Sir!” Suddenly, I was raring to go. Maybe it was the wine, but I doubted it.

He leaned closer and whispered in my ear. “Go to the ladies’ room, take off your panties, and bring them back to me.”

Damn. What have I gotten myself into?

Blood Brothers…2nd book in the Blood Trilogy, coming soon

I’m working on the 2nd book in the Blood Trilogy, Blood Brothers. Here’s a little sneaky peek. If you’ve not already read, or listened to Blood Ties, make sure you check it out!

Blood Ties - Urban Fantasy Romance
Urban Fantasy Romance

Snippet from Blood Brothers…

His fist smashed against the leather and he cursed. The words seeped into his mind and he was unable to stop them. Four more rapid punches then following with a left cross, sent the heavy bag flying.

“Did someone piss in your Frosties?”

Keagen spun to face Ghost. She was sneaky when she needed to be. He hadn’t sensed her presence given his attention was elsewhere and now it posed a problem. Should he tell her? Faced with platinum blonde hair tipped with blue together with ebony eyes, he blinked. Never knowing what color hair or eyes would greet him, he was caught off guard, but it gave him time to ponder over his dilemma.

He wiped the sweat from his brow. “Nah, I’m always grumpy in the mornings.”

“Yeah, you are.” Ghost chuckled and clapped both hands together. “So are we training or do you want me to leave you alone?”

“I’m good. You wanna tussle?”

“Always,” she smirked.

Ghost didn’t waste any time and lunged at Keagen with her right fist. He dodged her easily and teased.

“Too slow, Joe.”

She wasn’t about to let him get away so easily and before he’d finished grinning, she kicked out.

Reeling back to dodge a spinning kick, Keagen quickly recovered. Stepping forward with his left leg, he responded with side kick, but Ghost blocked his kick and sidestepped to sweep the leg past. She then lunged with an elbow smash to the back of Keagen’s head. He fell to the floor holding his head and cursed.

“I didn’t hit you that hard, get up you pussy.” Ghost rested both hands on her hips and stared at Keagen rolling on the floor. He wasn’t fooling anyone. They’d been here before and she knew if she moved to his aid, he’d spring back to his feet and head-butt her just like yesterday.

“Keagen!” She poked her toe at his back but he replied only with a string of curse words. Her brows knitted together with the realization he wasn’t faking. Dropping to the floor she knelt by his side. “I’m sorry, I must have caught you badly.”Blood Brothers by Julie Nicholls

“Nah.” Keagen continued to rub his head. “It wasn’t you. I’ve had a headache for the last few days.”

Ghost expression turned from concern to annoyance. “That is no fucking headache. You fell over in agony.” It suddenly dawned on her. Remembering what Gabriel told them after returning from Milwaukee, she wondered if his symptoms were cause for concern. If he was part of the same batch that was experiencing a rejection or something, he could be having a relapse. Quickly rising, she aided Keagen to his feet.

“I think we should call Gabe.”

“Ya think he’ll run over with some Tylenol.”

Ghost slapped his arm. “No, dumb-ass. To call his sister at Solgen and ask what problems the other subjects encountered first.” Her lower lip found its way into her mouth as she thought. “We can catch it before it worsens.”

“There’s fuck-all wrong with me. I’ve just got a headache. Chill out woman.”

Taking a few moments to rest, Keagen smoothed his hair back into a ponytail after his constant rubbing freed too much hair. He faced Ghost with a raised brow. “Come on. I’m ready for ya this time.” His hands rose in an attacking position, but Ghost wasn’t moving.

“Nope.” With feet fixed to the floor in a, ‘I’m not budging’ stance, she glared at Keagen.

“Bet I can make ya change your mind.” He lunged with a left hook and narrowly missed her temple. “Ha. Made you move.”

“Don’t think so.” She smirked. “Okay. Fine. You wanna play?” Ghost stepped back and just as she twirled, her body slipped into stealth mode.

Keagen called it that when she used the chameleon genetic enhancements. He wished the geeks at the lab had that in the syringe when they spliced him. It would have come in handy. Disappearing in front of his eyes as she blended into the scenery, Keagen cursed when her foot landed against his chest. He grunted as he fell back.

“That’s cheating!” He spun around to get a fix on her position. Learning quickly when she moved in stealth-mode, the light seemed to bend around where she stood, and he could sometimes get a lucky punch in. “I see you!” He grinned and attempted to sweep her leg away, but she was too fast.

“Missed, and it’s not cheating. I’m using my skills. Just like you.”

Her laughter brought narrowing eyes. Keagen straightened and concentrated on her scent. She had a specific smell and when she shifted, it grew stronger.

“I know what you’re doing.” She suddenly appeared with folded arms across her chest.

“Just using my natural abilities, not cheating.” He smirked but soon turned slack jawed as Ghost began unzipping her suit.

“Uh-huh… Me too.” Pulling down the zipper slowly, she slowly turned her back. She glanced over her shoulder and peeled the suit down. “New rule. If you can catch me, I’m all yours.” Just as she pushed the clothing down to her ass, she disappeared, leaving the visible suit in a heap on the floor.

“Fuck.” Keagen groaned as the tantalizing view of her ass disappeared. The searing pain in his brain suddenly vanished when his cock twitched, encouraging him to get his ass in gear since there was a game in play he certainly didn’t want to miss.

Closing his eyes with flaring nostrils, he drew in a deep breath. She was close. He could not only smell her, but also felt the change in the air as she spun past. He waited. Slowly, slowly, catch your monkey…

Keagen made a grab for Ghost when she touched his shoulder, but missed by a split second. Keeping his cool, he waited for another opportunity. He may not be lightning fast like her, but he still had the higher IQ and waited for the opportune moment. Taking a breath, slow and easy, he concentrated then snatched to the side, snaring his prey. Ghost squealed in his tight hold while he pulled her close. She slowly appeared from the camouflage and stared into ebony eyes.

“Well done.” Her attention drew to Keagen’s lips. She’d thought about them often. Pressed against hers, or sucking on her nipples or something equally exquisite. Her body melted in his arms, and she felt the slickness pool between her thighs. Her body was ready to submit. Keagen stood her equal in strength, stamina, and agility. She wondered what the sex would be like. Two genetically enhanced humans. That would be a showstopper.

Stay tuned for more sneaky peeks and a release date of Blood Brothers!!

Men as Sex Slaves… Makes a change I suppose

I don’t often like to use the term, SEX SLAVE and our hero, Kai of Darkmide from Demon Within knows all about this.

Sneaky Peekurban fantasy paranormal romance author

Walking their horse at a steady pace, they were almost home. Kai, still overwhelmed at the miracle Eloise had performed and astounded she wasn’t held in a higher regard by her family, squeezed her lovingly. He felt her warm breath fall against his skin and realized he’d never appreciated how pleasant the sensation could be. He felt a connection he’d not had with anyone else.

Robbed of deep feeling his whole life, Kai struggled to connect emotionally with a woman. He’d always simply satisfied his sexual demands and then dismissed his women afterwards with no further need for their counsel. After winning his first fight at sixteen, he was rewarded with a young woman to use for his sexual pleasure. Thus his only education had begun with regard to women. Equal to a stallion used for stud, he’d learned quickly and performed his duties well. Detached from any emotion, he didn’t need to know the names of the women he serviced. They were slaves, like him. Once he’d completed the task, they were removed from his cell. He’d never see them again.

As a child learns the difference between right and wrong from his parents, Kai learned the same from his slavers. It was a twisted education that taught him killing earned rewards, and women were a mere commodity. Years of systematic training made him a warrior, a fighter, and a breeder. They didn’t teach him about love; that would have to come now from someone who could forgive his life of butchery and carnage.

Fallen Angels Series Final Book

Ascension Within is the final book in the Fallen Angels Series. We ‘ve seen Eloise change from a timid princess into a strong and powerful queen. Her husband, Kai of Darkmide has also had some life changes and now finds himself in Hell. The task to take Samyaza back to his prison was a task Kai chose, but not everyone was happy with the arrangement.

Read the final book in the series and learn the whole story!

Smoke and flames billowed around the fallen angel, Samyaza, as he disappeared under the earth. Clinging onto him, Kai gasped for air as the choking fumes filled his lungs, but he wasn’t about to release his captive. For what seemed like an eternity, they tumbled back to the depths of hell, both fighting along the way. Samyaza tried to free himself from the half-angel. His arms flailed in frustration, and his temper grew when he realized that ridding himself of the warrior was fruitless. He screamed an ear-piercing howl when his feet connected with the charred ground.

“Scream all you want fallen, you’re staying here!” Kai struggled to keep his hold on the demon, and although he held him fast, he worried he’d be unable to fulfill his task and secure Samyaza to his prison. Cursing as he searched the chasm for the means to hold the prisoner, Kai’s attention drew to a shape hovering close by. Despite the orange glow from the burning tar pits, there remained darkened corners, and his eyes narrowed as a hooded figure emerged from the dimness.

 

“Hereurban fantasy paranormal romance author, bind him with this!”

A thick chain, seemingly glowing, flew towards Kai, and catching it with one hand, he hissed at the hot iron.

“Your skin will not burn if you hurry,” the concerned voice called.

Hurrying as instructed, Kai looped the chain around Samyaza’s thick neck. The ground suddenly trembled, and the sound of cracking rocks caused Kai to glance over his shoulder towards the noise. Grinning, he watched in amazement as a means to fasten Samyaza appeared before his eyes. Anchored into the stone, an iron ring, large enough to thread the chain through, glowed brightly. He stretched his hand towards the hoop, and growled. Reluctant to relinquish his hold on Samyaza to reach for the ring of iron, Kai cursed.

“Throw it to me!” The voice urged.

Narrowing his eyes, Kai could barely make out the features of the shrouded man, but had no option than to trust him, and threw him the chain.

“Quickly! I’m losing my hold.” Kai pulled on the cable, tightening it around Samyaza’s neck as he tried to free himself. “I cannot hold him!”

“Almost finished… just a moment longer!”

The expanse filled with a deafening roar when Samyaza felt the chain tighten. He tugged at the burning iron using all his strength, but it was useless. His wings spread wide and swiped at the cloaked figure.

“Watch out!” Kai could barely hold onto his quarry as Samyaza’s arms and wings thrashed.

“He is bound!” The figure pushed the hood of his cloak over his head to reveal golden hair, scraped away from his face and secured by a leather band. “You may release him, son.”

Kai paused for the briefest moment before loosening his hold on Samyaza. He quickly ducked to avoid his flaying wings before moving to stand by his father’s side.

They watched as the walls expanded, seemingly breaking apart before engulfing Samyaza. His cries diminished quickly as the stone reformed, sealing him away.

No words passed between Kai and Adram, his father. They studied one another, noting every detail of each other’s face.
