Romancing The Capitol #mytripfailed

UGh, my disappointment knew no end last week when my flight was delayed due to lightning and storms then delayed, delayed and well…you get the pic. I tried one airline after another to get there but it just didn’t happen. I’m sorry for all the readers and fans I planned to see as well as authors. Now I feel like I need to sign up next year and arrive two weeks earlier so murphy’s law can’t screw with me :/ The pics from the conference were amazing and my writing bestie MK Eidem was awesome giving my books out since I’d already shipped them ahead. Nothing to do but move forward.

This means in a few days,  I’m going to do some small giveaways to handle the swag and gifts I’d planned to use at RTC. Keep your eyes peeled.

Happy Holidays

Christmas season is upon us and in a few days I will celebrate with family and friends. 2016 has been a trying year and I’ll admit I’m not sad to see it on its way out.  I didn’t have time in the rush of prepping and writing to do my usual holiday blog giveaway but I will do an autographed print copy of any book in my backlist to commenters who share a special memory. The contest is open now until Dec 25th midnight EST. I’ll pick 3 random winners.

 

Here’s my memory. When I was around 7-8years old my dad pulled me aside and said he talked to Santa who requested ice cold pepsi for Christmas with his cookies instead of milk. I happily complied with the drink request never realizing until years later that my dad the avid pepsi drinker enjoyed his midnight snack immensely. LOL.

 


Holiday Romance Blog Hop

sfrbholidayshowcase

The holidays are about 2 weeks away. I’ve finished shopping, wrapped most of my gifts and generally feel quite prepared for the holiday this year. To celebrate some of my “free” time I’m participating in the SFRB Blog Hop. I love blog hops because I discover new authors and new books. It’s been a while since I’ve done one too. Click here to see what’s going on with other SFR authors and maybe pick up some new reads. I know I plan to 🙂

I don’t have any holiday stories but decided to share a small snippet from my latest release Kyele’s Passion since one of my current WIPs is from the A World Beyond series.

Excerpt:

“What happened?” Azar asked calmly as Victoria turned her head away.

“She attacked me.”

Lasan held one arm in an iron clad grip while Victoria struggled. Rison wasn’t exerting as much pressure on her other arm but his hold was solid as well. Between the two men there was no where for her to run.

“You couldn’t subdue her, Lasan? One frail woman?” Azar asked, not taking his eyes from the sudden sneer on Victoria’s face. His heart clenched at the visible sign of her hatred for him.

Lasan smirked and tightened his hold on Victoria’s arm causing her to wince. “I merely slapped her to get her to cease.”

“Ah, I see.” Azar drew his weapon and fired his laser directly at Lasan’s head.

Victoria screamed as the soldier dropped beside her. Azar couldn’t meet her gaze and found it easier to face Rison. “She is mine.”

Azar waited for Rison’s sharp nod of acknowledgement. “She’s not to be injured. Ever. Make sure everyone knows this or there will be more useless soldiers to me.”

“Yes, General.”

He turned his back on them unable to face Victoria and her judgment. “Get her back to her room and have someone clean up this mess.”

“Yes, General.”

“You monster,” Victoria shouted behind him. “You’re nothing but a monster!”

He steeled his heart against the pain her words caused. It was a good thing his people thought he had no feelings. If they did, they’d know that he loved a human from Earth who wanted nothing to do with him.

And he was a monster. At least she had that right.

Peek at the book for those curious below:

Taking a deep breath and letting it out slowly, she waited as he made his way toward her, a large steaming cup in his hand. The bell jingled over the door.

“Antonia,” he purred in that unidentifiable accent.

Toni smiled and tipped her head to the side. “You’re gonna keep calling me that aren’t you?”

His fingers brushed at the loose curl on her face and tucked it behind her ear. A man to woman touch if ever she’d felt one. “Indeed. It’s a beautiful name.”

Toni blushed. At twenty-eight she stood in front of this gorgeous man and blushed. Toni blew out a breath and tried to gather her wits. Not an easy thing to do in his potent presence. “Thank you.”

Drake didn’t stop touching her. His thumb followed the hollow of her cheekbone, trailing over her nose and ending at her mouth. He pressed down firm on her bottom lip and Toni’s mouth parted on a gasp.

He never lost contact with her eyes. The violet hues swirled and made all sorts of promises that left Toni breathless. Leaning in close, Drake murmured, “Yes or no, Antonia?”

Toni wanted to pretend she had no idea what he meant but the heat from his touch set her skin on fire. Denial was not in her vocabulary. She wanted what his eyes hinted at. Craved it actually. “Yes.”
