Excerpt

Deafening buzzing interrupts my thoughts and a searing pain in my temple follows. My hands instinctively cover my ears to blot out the painfully loud noise.
“What is it, Scarlett?” Dizelli asks.
Elyan turns to me. “Scarlett!”
My eyes snap shut as intense pain cuts through my head once more. If I knew what a migraine felt like, I’m sure this would be it. There’s so much noise. Buzzing…and screaming.
“NO!”
“What? Scarlett…what is wrong?” Elyan kicks the chair away as he jumps up.
“MAORI!”
Her name bursts through my lips in a scream.
“She’s afraid.”
The emotions rip through me. Pain, sadness, loneliness, anger, and rage. It’s a torrent of feelings I can’t escape. My heart is breaking from despair. Everything Maori is feeling at this moment is coming to me.
“Elyan, we need to go. NOW!”
The room is quiet as everyone stops what they’re doing. Elyan starts giving orders.
“Bring the horses! Warriors… gather your swords. Our dragons are under attack!”
The room erupts into activity once more.
“How do you know?” Earl Gwilim asks his son.
“Someone is attacking Maori. Scarlett feels her pain. We need to ride to the mountains, and quickly.”
“I will go with you, Elyan,” Mostyn says.
He doesn’t wait for Elyan to reply and instructs his father’s soldiers to have his horse saddled.
Dizelli wraps her arm around my shoulder. “Come on, Scarlett. We need to go. Can you stand up?”
“Yes. Just let me lean on you for support.”
She helps me out of the room and we wait outside for the horses. Torches are lit and the warriors are scurrying around under Elyan’s bark.
“Bring the fastest horse for Scarlett!” Elyan shouts at the groom. He runs over leading two horses. “Scarlett, you and I will lead. You must reach Maori before it’s too late.”
I can’t bear the thought of her suffering. The pain isn’t so bad and the noise is subsiding a little. Maybe she knows we’re coming and is saving her strength. I hope so. It’s going to take us a while to get to her no matter how fast the horses are.
“Scarlett, let me help you,” Elyan offers.
I hitch up my dress and he helps me onto the horse. Once I’m seated, he touches my hand.
“Can you still feel her?”
“Yes, but we should hurry, Elyan.”
“We will ride like the wind. The warriors will lead the way with torches and we will be on their tails.”
“Let us go! Our dragons need us!”pre-order-dragon-moon

I’m handing my blog over to Jordan Buchanan today so she can tell you about her latest release!!!

On-the-Job Training: Permanent Position by Jordan Buchanan

Release date: August 7

 

In the exciting conclusion of the On-the-Job Training serial, John Mackenzie and Laura Benson face the most daunting, and dangerous, obstacles in their relationship. Wanting nothing more than to enjoy their romance and their exploration off dominance and submission, they’re confronted instead with real life issues that keep getting in the way.

Suspecting Jacqueline Deane, the widow of John’s business partner, of embezzling from the company, John and Laura are stunned to learn her true identity and set a trap to catch her in the act. When Laura and Mistress Aleksandra go on an undercover road trip to learn more, thy discover Jacqueline is likely guilty of far more heinous crimes than mere theft.

As if dealing with that isn’t enough, there’s a playground to build, a bedroom to remodel, and a business to run. It’s a wonder they ever have time to play with their new bondage gear…but they find a way. Miss Evvie comes to the rescue once again with interesting items for John’s toy bag and who doesn’t love new toys?

Together, they face every challenge and Laura finally begins to feel comfortable in John’s home….until she finds some very personal mementos from his marriage to Lainey. She must find a way to banish her insecurities once and for all. And even if she can, Jacqueline has no intention of letting them have their happily-ever-after.

 

Excerpt:

To say he was delighted with my purchases would be the understatement of the century. As he ran the Wartenberg wheel over his own forearm, his eyes took on the wicked gleam I’ve come to recognize and crave seeing.

With two purposeful strides, he was at the office door, locking it and shuttering the blinds closed. He leaned against it and gazed at me, with what I thought of as his “Dom face” sliding into place. “Stand and strip, baby.”

There’s something so much more hedonistic about playing in the office than at home—something naughtier and nastier that sets my heart to pounding. My fingers flew through undoing buttons and hooks and zippers until I stood naked at my desk, my clothes tossed on top of it.

Wearing a lascivious grin, he commented, “Leaving your toy to keep you company while I was gone seems to have worked out well. Your high beams are on, baby.” He didn’t make a move toward me but continued to talk in a low, husky voice. “You look good enough to eat, so I think I will. After I get you properly prepared that is.”

“Yes, Sir.” I awaited his orders; thoughts of anything other than this moment, this encounter, fled my mind.

“Go to my office and clear my desk. I think we’ll need all of it. I’ll be right there.”office3

It wasn’t a difficult task to accomplish; John didn’t load his desk up with a ton of stuff the way I did and there was room for most of it on his credenza. The buzzing inside me increased to its highest setting as I was putting his stapler and desk clock into a drawer and I damn near dropped them. Not only was the toy vibrating, the tip of it was rotating. I closed my eyes as waves of pleasure inundated me. All I needed to come was friction on my clit, and that was one thing this vibrator didn’t do.

Water ran in the kitchen sink and then the refrigerator door opened and closed before John walked into the room. He had our new gear and a couple bottles of water in his arms. “Sorry to keep you waiting, baby. I wanted to wash my hands and grab us something to drink. Looking at you made my mouth go dry.” He winked at me as his brazen grin broadened.

After placing the cuffs and the spreader bar on the sofa, he turned to me and motioned to the desk. “On your back across the desk lengthwise.”

I settled myself, the smooth wood surface cool against my skin. He had me scooch down so the edge of the desk hit me at the bend of my knees. He placed a throw pillow from the sofa under my head and caressed my cheek with the back of his hand tenderly. Checking my position with an appraising eye, he nodded. “I think we need some mood music, don’t you?” He started up a playlist on his phone, and I smiled as some old-school R&B wafted out. “That’s sounds about right,” he said.

“Yes, Sir. I like it.” I was already high on sensation. It was always this way when we played—anticipation mixed with my calm confidence that whatever happened next was going to be perfect no matter what he ultimately chose to do to me.

He pulled his shirt off over his head, tousling his hair. I had talked him into letting it grow out a bit and I loved the way it curled just a little at the ends. He’d picked up some more sun during our walk on the beach, and I envied the effortless way he tanned.

“Close your eyes and keep them closed until I say.”

“Yes, Sir.”

He positioned my arms so my hands were palms up and slightly away from my body. The next thing I felt was a prickling sensation as he ran the pinwheel ever so slowly up my left arm. It was amazing! He continued across my collarbone and then down my right arm before reversing the path.

“Is that good?”

“Oh yes, Sir. Surprisingly so.”

“If I press too hard or do anything that hurts in a bad way, it’s your job to call red light, Laura. I have no way of knowing what you’re feeling otherwise. Understand?”

“Yes, Sir. I’ll keep you informed, I promise.”

He ran that sucker all over the tender skin of my inner arms, my belly, around my breasts and then very, very gently over my nipples. That move drew an involuntary gasp from me.

“Baby?”

“Green, green, green as grass, Sir.”

He chuckled. “I guess that means I should do it again.” So he did.

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.

On-the-Job Training was never sexy…until now.

He wasn’t a billionaire with a dungeon full of toys; he was the Dom she’d always wanted.

She wasn’t a wide-eyed young innocent she was the submissive he’d always needed.

When a mutual friend puts her in contact with John, she jumps at the opportunity for change.

During the interview, each feels a spark and John hires Laura on the spot.  After fighting their growjulienicholls.coming attraction to each other as long as they can, they begin to explore building a Dom/sub relationship that works for them. There’s only one problem distracting the couple from the euphoria of their new relationship. Someone is altering John’s job orders and substituting dangerously substandard materials and forging his signature on them. Before disaster strikes, John begins his search for the culprit while Laura contends with the platinum blonde shark—Jacqueline Deane.

Book Cover release for Blood Brothers

I’m showing you the  book cover for my sequel to urban fantasy Blood Ties,  the 2nd book in the Blood Trilogy, Blood Brothers.

I know, we’ve only just had a book cover release for Blood Ties! However, I’m really enjoying writing the 2nd book and have prepared the cover.

Our dynamic duo, Keagen and Gabriel have their work cut out for them again in the 2nd book.

Blood Brothers Urban Fantasy Book

Here’s a sneaky peek. I can’t give too much because there are spoilers!

Blood Brothers, Book Two -Chapter One

For the fifth night in a row, Keagen awoke to the sound of Ghost shouting. He expected this would happen. Leaving the employment of Solgen Laboratories was a difficult adjustment. Gone were the money, fast cars, weapons, and security, not to mention the title of top hunter. It would be difficult for her to adjust, but she would manage, eventually.

Welcome to the real world.

Jumping from his bed, Keagen rushed to Ghost’s room to find her in a state of unrest. She thrashed her head from side to side, unable to wake from the nightmare. Once more, she shouted in Russian.

“Nyet, spasibo! Ya ne khochu!”

“Wake up!”

Keagen roused Ghost from the nightmare. She lay on the bed, glaring up at him. Sweat soaked her hair and skin as she stared, wide-eyed and breathing heavily.

Perching on the edge of the bed, he pulled her into his arms and smoothed wet hair from around her face. “You’re okay. I’ve got you.”

Her terrors had become a nightly occurrence, and Keagen knew all too well what that was like. He’d been through it. Only time lessened the frequency, but they never stopped completely. Leaving the protection of Solgen Laboratories wasn’t a tough choice for him, once he learned about the early retirement they planned for him. While he was top dog, he would never have dreamed of leaving. But on discovery of the plans to replace him with Ghost, he had no choice.

Ghost closed her eyes and nodded. “I’m okay. Thank you.”

“Same shit?”

“Yeah.” She frowned. “I don’t know who the man is, but he keeps after me… I wish it would stop.” Ghost wiped away the sweat from her forehead.

“It will. It just takes time.” Keagen smiled. “You want me to get you something to drink?”

Shaking her head, Ghost sighed. “No, I’m good.”

As much as Keagen wished to stay in her room, it wasn’t helping his libido. Since Ghost had moved in, he’d refrained from driving into town to satisfy his aching balls. Abstinence wasn’t on his preferred list of activities. He was a natural predator and needed sex. Often. He couldn’t deny his initial feelings of hatred for the former hunter when he learned of her existence, but since they’d teamed up to take on Solgen, she was rapidly growing on him.

Breaking the hold, he jumped to his feet. “Okay, let me know if you need anything.”

“Did you find out anything about me yet?”

“Nah, I’m still trying to hack my way in. I don’t know why it’s proving difficult. I must be losing my touch,” he smirked. “Don’t worry. I won’t give up. This fucker is annoying me now. I’m gonna crack it, or die trying. Try to get some rest.”

Returning to his room, he settled back in bed. Hacking was one of his most precious skills, and he wasn’t going to let this issue get the better of him. Opening the laptop, he thought he’d have another go despite the mind-crunching pain in his head telling him to rest. For the last two days, a headache plagued him. He couldn’t put his finger on it, but he wasn’t on top of his game, and it annoyed the crap out of him. Keagen didn’t do half measures. He liked to win. Always. The determination to get into the encoded files was the most important item on his to-do list. For whatever reason, the coding on Ghost’s files was different from the others he’d hacked. If it took him all night, he didn’t care. He needed this information for himself, not just Ghost.

It was a mystery why she spoke Russian in all of the dreams. When Ghost was awake, she couldn’t speak the language. The secret was in her files. It had to be. Someone really didn’t want the information leaking. Keagen managed to break into his own files within days of learning about the other hunters. He was sure Keller and the lab geeks knew he had. As though it was accepted behavior for all super IQ hunters to go snooping. Ghost already tried but didn’t get anywhere, and now it was up to him.

He rubbed his forehead and groaned. Migraines weren’t something he suffered with, and yet this fucker was persistent, if nothing else. Always wary of taking meds, he usually avoided them. Once warned by someone at the labs that it could fuck with the viruses’ that rampaged through his body while the gene splicing took hold, he made it a policy to stay clear of all pills and potions, unless administered directly from Keller or his underling.

For the next two hours, his fingers worked the keys, and just as the first glimmering light from dawn crept into his room, he finally hit the jackpot.

“Gotcha, motherfucker!”

The morning looked promising. Keagen was on the road, traveling to a small town he’d never heard of. Filled with elation, thoughts of catching his prey made him smile. There was no need to rush. Despite his need to snag the escapee, he took a leisurely drive. Intel he received advised of a stranger who’d set up house in DeALTERNATECOVER with FWP logo FBwburn Falls, and was deemed a ‘badass.’

Keagen smirked. There’s a new player coming to town. Move over badass.

Relaxing into the soft leather seat of the BMW 328i, one of Keagen’s favorite rides, he took in the scenery and thought about his plan of action. Meticulously organized, he always had a fallback plan. He wasn’t at home being Mr. Cock-up, and hated if someone fucked up, which wasn’t too often as he mostly worked alone. Forced to team up on one occasion, it didn’t go well, resulting in a few deaths. Kicking off, Keagen said it was either his way, or he was retiring, which was funny considering they owned him; despite his reluctance to admit it. While he was comfortable, he’d put up with their shit and continued along his merry way. Doing their dirty work. With access to fast cars, the best weaponry, some not even on the market officially, and recreation time to fuck, life was good. He wanted it to continue.

His mind took him back to when it wasn’t so pleasurable, and his hands tightened around the steering wheel as he growled. While he didn’t have many memories remaining, he knew it wasn’t good. Faded scars on his body were the only reminders of his childhood, since Solgen wiped his memory. It was the standard protocol to start with a clean mind, and easier. Still perfecting the procedure, the scientists had made a few errors, but Keagen was their most successful guinea pig. Receiving top marks in all the tests, he confirmed loyalty to the company and, therefore, was allowed to leave the compound. At first, he was under supervision, but that had soon changed. After excelling in each mission within a few months, his reputation soared. Managing a hundred percent retrieval rate, with a required eighty percent coming in alive, he was the top dog. The twenty percent died because they resisted captureAVATAR FOR AUTHOR PAGE and return back to the labs. Keagen was strong. At the start of his hunting career, he didn’t know his own strength. Rarely bringing home a dead one these days, he’d learned to master his body and the enhancements.

The book has been up for sale for a week, to get a few sales in and hopefully some reviews, and I’ve been blown away by all the 5* reviews.

I’ve been likened to Christine Feehan, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and James Patterson which is fabulous!

See what the readers think.

OMG! I simply can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in this series! Ms.Nicholls characters are always smoking hot men with brains, brawn and a slightly twisted sense of humor. Along with a tiny vulnerability that makes you love them, even with their faults. The women in this book kicks ass. I love the plot and am so EXCITED for the next one. This series is COMPLETELY different from her Demon series, both are 5 stars. One of the best authors, especially if your looking for hot sex, luscious men, strong kick ass ladies and a fast paced read! You will not regret a book by Julie Nicholls, EVER! EITHER series.

Julie Nicholls is a magician when it comes to the written word because Blood Ties is ABRACA…DAYUM! I love Keagan’s “I’ve forgotten more dirty tricks than you’ll ever know” attitude and how he and Gabriel bring balance to each other’s lives. I identify with the square peg in a round hole life that Keagan, Gabriel, Alyssa and Ghost lead either by experiment or birth. She has erotica down to an art form. Julie’s books are roller coaster rides. Your emotions and imagination pushed to the limits! She literally puts you in the middle of the action. I wanted to be in the passenger seat of Keagen’s car, speeding down the highway. Driving straight into the unknown at the side of a smoking hot badass to the core alpha male! I didn’t want this on the edge of my seat book to end!
I’ve followed Ms. Nicholls writing career from the beginning and she never disappoints. Her stories are exciting and captivating. Julie’s instincts for knowing exactly what a reader is looking for are always on point.
Forget pins and needles…I’ll be on a bed on nails waiting for the next installment of this trilogy!

This book is a wee bit different than what many paranormal shifter books offer.

You get to follow Lyssa and Gabriel as they are put in danger because of Gabe’s past. A world of trouble is headed their way as a hunter who has Gabes DNA is on his way to bring him back to the labs he was held captive in. You also get to meet the ever so sexy (and cocky) Keagen and fascinating Ghost. The action is packed in with twists and turns through the story too keep your mind guessing who exactly is the bad guy and who is truly good.

You’ll find yourself hoping a certain character is killed off then wondering why you would ever think that the next chapter. My emotions have been on an up and down train ride and then you get left with a slight cliff hanger that makes you wanna ask….

Soooo…about that second book in their series? Is it ready yet?

Blood ties is currently in production for an audio book…narrated by the fabulously talented actor, Scott Richard Ehredt.

BLOOD TIES IS LIVE!!!

Hey Peeps

Due to a cock-up… Blood Ties is now live!!!

Amazon Buy Link

I know, it was my mistake. I uploaded a new document for pre order today but forgot to put the date in!! lmao!!!

Keagen sauntered into the first bar he came across. It was dark and dingy and only two other people took up space at the bar. Scanning thoroughly before pulling out a stool, there was a sudden rush of blood to his cock when the pretty bartender greeted him with a smile.

“Hey, stranger, what can I get you?”

“Now you’re asking.” Keagen grinned. “Coffee, please.” He couldn’t help notice her scent and smiled. She had to be the girlfriend. If he dropped in, that would make for an interesting meeting.

Lyssa poured the tall, dark, and extremely handsome punter a mug of coffee.

“Are you new in town, or just passing through?” Furnishing him with a cheery smile and wide eyes, she couldn’t resist a flirt. Aside from Gabriel, he was the only other good-looking man she’d set eyes on.

“Oh, I’m here to check on family.” He sipped his coffee while glowering over the rim at Lyssa. Noticing pert breasts with peaked nipples, his cock thickened under the restraints of his jeans.

“You have family? Here?” Raising both brows, Lyssa wondered who in Dewburn Falls had relatives this hot. “What’s your name?”

Keagen breathed deeply before pursing his lips. He wasn’t up for sharing right now, although he was sure he could fob her off with a line. “I’m adopted, so my name wouldn’t be familiar to you, but you can call me Keagen.” He leaned against the counter. “What’s your name, princess?”

“Lyssa.” She beamed. She liked the way he smiled. He was utterly delicious in a wicked ‘I’ll rip out your heart’ kind of way.

“That’s a pretty name for a pretty lady.” He flashed another dazzling smile. “Are you spoken for, or may I ask you out to dinner?”

Blushing, and suddenly feeling cornered, Lyssa grimaced. “Yeah, I’m kind of involved with someone, but thanks for asking.”

“Well I guess I’ll have to eat alone, then.” Keagen thought for a moment. She had to be involved with his prey. He snapped his head toward the door and watched another young and attractive female move closer. His brow arched. Dewburn Falls had much to offer. His nostrils flared as the scent drifted his way. Wolf. Another one. There’s no wonder he’d moved here; there’s wall-to-wall pussy. Well, sort of.

Lyssa smiled. “Hi, Sally. How’s it going?”

“Don’t ask.” Sally sidled behind the bar and grabbed a beer from the freezer. “I know it’s your night off, but I have a problem at home, and I wondered if you’d come back and work the last couple of hours for me? I’ll work your full shift tomorrow night. Would you do that, hon?”

Lyssa sighed. She hated working two shifts in one day. However, Sally had swapped with her in the past last minute. “Yeah, sure.”

“Thanks, doll. I’ll square it with the boss.” Sally gALTERNATECOVER with FWP logo FBlanced at the customer and sighed. Noticing his eyes focusing on her larger than average breasts, she smirked. “You need a refill hon?” She sauntered closer and gave him a better view as she leaned across to fill his mug. “Not seen you in town before. You planning on staying long?”

“Depends.” Keagen slowly licked his lips.

“On?”

“Whether there’s anything interesting enough to keep me.” He smoothed the flat of his hand over his hair. He’d tied it up in a man-bun, but a few stragglers had broken free.

Lyssa rolled her eyes as he flirted with Sally. Only two minutes earlier, she was a princess. Shaking her head, she should have known. Hot men like him don’t wait around, and if someone’s unavailable, they move on fast. No harm done. She was only flirting anyway, but it still annoyed her that she’d fallen for his charms.

The unmistakable honk of Gabriel’s horn outside made her squeal. He never let her down and always kept his promises. He restored her faith in hot men; they weren’t all cut from the same cloth.

“Okay, hon. I’m outta here.” She winked at Sally, then bolted for the door and yelled over her shoulder. “Have fun.”

Keagen’s eyes narrowed. Interested to know who the hottie was dating and if his suspicions were correct, he jumped off the stool and made for the door after throwing $10 on the counter.

A beaten-up truck pulled away and headed off down the street before turning right on a road leading out of town. That had to be him. Keagen ran to his car and followed the direction of the truck, keeping a safe distance. He didn’t want him spooked.
