Welcome back to the Tuesday Tease~! TOXIC Part Two is up and running!
Thank you so much to those of you who have already devoured it and stopped by on facebook/twitter to let me know your thoughts. And thank you to those of you who left reviews. I appreciate that so very much! And if you haven’t had a chance to read EPHEMERAL yet, this would be a great time because there are a few characters that bleed over into both series. Try not to hold the fact they’re Count’s against them. It’s a fun read that interweaves with Celestra and with Skyla’s new series even more so. I really hope you’ll enjoy it!
Right now I’m putting the final touches on SOMEONE TO LOVE and will have that up in a week to a week and a half. My editor is getting ready to bounce it back to me one more time.
ETHEREAL KNIGHTS is up next in the editing queue
If you won something through reader appreciation month, most of it is on its way. I’ll do another run to the post office later this week. If I owe you a book, it will ship slowly but will eventually show up in the mail.
This week for reader appreciation
One set of EPHEMERAL PJs
One Celestra Mug (Not pictured)
One signed poster
One signed copy of EPHEMERAL
Five signed bookmarks
Off to the teasers!
ELYSIAN (Celestra Series Book 8)
(Skyla and Marshall)
I hedge my way over to him. He’s so handsome, my heart breaks for him like this. I want to do something for Marshall, something special.
“Do you have a birthday?”
“No”—he cuts me a quick look before continuing with the task at hand—“I was created.”
“We should give you one. Halloween would be fitting,” I tease.
“Demon’s delight? No thank you.”
EVANESCENT (The Countenance 2)
(Laken to Cooper)
“Oh, I don’t know—if a strong guy like you could take on a zombie or two, I think you could handle sleeping next to me in a bed for a few hours.”
“Like I said, I’ll take the floor.”
SOMEONE TO LOVE (New Adult, mature audiences)
(Cruise talking to Kendall, a.k.a. Kenny)
“You’re so beautiful.” I press a kiss over her cheek and linger. Kenny would do anything I wanted. I could have her right now. I could burry myself inside her, put an end to this aggressive build up brewing in me once and for all, and explode with relief from the pressure but I can’t. Kenny deserves to have someone say those magic words to her, one of which is the very word she declared war against in class this morning. I suppose I’m a big enough asshole to take her anyway, screw good morals and serendipity but I can’t—not Kenny.
“I think tonight’s lesson is snuggling.” I gently roll her into me until we’re spooning again.
“Snuggling?” She burrows her hair into my neck, scented with flowers and vanilla and her skin burns an erotic hole right through me. I close my eyes and take in the ecstasy and the misery as if she were writing a poem over me with her flesh.
