Welcome back to the Tuesday Tease~!
Next week I begin reader appreciation month in which I give away prizes each Tuesday because you are beyond awesome and deserve them.
Toxic Part Two news~! My editor is still hacking through that thicket but once it reverts to me it’s on baby. I’m taking that book to task, working 24/7 until I crush it under my heel, I mean until it sings to me and then I will graciously pass it on to you~! In the meanwhile I managed to pretty up SOMEONE TO LOVE and will swap it out with T2 once she’s through. Honestly, my personal goal was to get T2 out to you by Halloween, so “boo” for me. Sorry about that. On the upside, each day it’s closer to completion.
Enjoy the teasers~!
TOXIC Part Two (Celestra Series Book 7.5)
(Chloe, Gage, Ellis, Skyla)
“It’s our senior year. This is it, the big one.” She slits her eyes over to Gage’s crotch when she says “the big one” and I suck in a quick breath at the audacity. “Then it all ends,” she whispers, “and everyone goes their separate ways.”
“We’ll always have Paragon.” Ellis picks up a stick and stokes the fire. “Half of us will probably never leave.”
*(Skyla and Marshall)
“Fine, I’ll go to Ezrina myself.” I take Marshall in with all of his physical perfection, feel his glorious vibrations of love pulsate through me, and wonder how I ever got so lucky that a celestial king such as himself should ever pay me any attention.
“My, my—pouring it on a little thick, are we?” He purrs, lapping up the stroke to his ego.
“Did it work?”
“Maybe,” he steals a quick kiss before pulling away. “What the heck. Let’s get this party started.” He snaps his fingers and we disappear.
(Wesley to Skyla after she threatens to rip his balls off in the Tenebrous Woods)
“I wasn’t kissing you.” Wesley twitches his brow the same way Gage does. It makes me wonder if Dr. Oliver had made a genetic deposit to some long gone girlfriend before he married Emma. “You’re beautiful, Skyla,” he whispers, “but my heart belongs somewhere else.” He tilts into me. “I was going say thank you for trusting that I wouldn’t hurt you.” He offers a bastardized version of a sarcastic smile. “And I won’t.”
SOMEONE TO LOVE
*New adult contemporary romance
(Kendall talking to her friends about Cruise)
“I asked him to instruct me in his wicked ways.” A devious smile plays on my lips but I won’t give it. “I told him I wanted to be just as sleazy as he is when I grow up and asked him to teach me the tricks of the trade.”
“Which consists of?” Lauren seems nonplused by my ability to enlist Cruise as my personal portal to promiscuity.
“I don’t know. It’s like my mouth started moving without my permission and before I knew it I was asking him to lead me through the deep dark forest of debauchery. The truth is, I sort of wanted to, you know, be with him but I was too shy and embarrassed by the fact I’ve never been with anyone before.” I shrug as though what just flew from my lips was morally sane. “I believe I referred to it as a social experiment.”
