Welcome back to the Tuesday Tease! I hope your New Year is off to a rockin’ start.
BIG THANK YOU to those of you who have read and reviewed SOMEONE TO LOVE!!! You have blown me away. I plan on revisiting Kendall and Cruise's world one day soon. I also hope to write Ally and Morgan’s story (Kendall’s bff and brother). Big hugs to you guys for your awesome support! XOXO
Congrats to Sarah Joy, one of my awesome editors who gave birth to a beautiful baby boy a few days ago. I’d like to think SOMEONE TO LOVE sent her body into a hormonal tirade and helped thrust her into labor. ;) I’m just thrilled Mommy and baby are doing great.
Book news: ETHEREAL KNIGHTS is done and will be sent Amy Eye (my other awesome editor) at some point today. I’ll spare Sarah since she has her own little ethereal knight to contend with. ETHEREAL KNIGHTS is ETHEREAL rewritten from Gage and Logan’s perspective. It’s a bit more heated than the original mostly because the boys are not as pure and innocent as Skyla was in the beginning.
EVANESCENT is framing itself out nicely, And ELYSIAN (The final Celestra Book) is in pieces, but I’m very hopeful for early spring. Skyla’s new series will begin on its heels. I really hope you’ll like the way Celestra ends and will join me on Skyla’s new journey. It’s going to be ~HOT~!
ETHEREAL KNIGHTS (Ethereal rewritten from Gage and Logan’s perspective)
(Logan thinking about Skyla)
I land over her gently and meet my mouth with hers, pouring my affection into her in one blissful exchange. I never thought I could feel this way about anybody. I never thought I could want—crave anybody so damn much. Skyla is water and oxygen, and I need to soak her in, drink her down—be near her—in her, just to survive.
This night is definitely ending far, far better than I had ever hoped.
EVANESCENT (The Countenance 2)
(Wesley and Laken at a Count ritual)
“You’re a treasure, Laken. Once you’re sealed, you’ll forever be a select possession.”
I glance down at the bowl of blood and ashes he’s cradling, fragile as a newborn. I’m pretty sure I’m not going to be anybody’s possession let alone the devils that run this twisted body smuggling operation.
“There’s one more thing.” Wes gazes into me with all of the tenderness he can muster. “I’ve poured my blood into this cup, Laken. I’m sealing you for myself as well—that is if you’ll let me. If you want to be with me and with no one else forever.”
Cooper blinks through my mind. I’ll be Wesley’s forever if I agree, at least according to the Counts.
Mom and Lacy hover in my mind like ghosts. I’ll sacrifice everything to save them, including Cooper if I have to.
“Yes, Wesley,” I say it sweetly. “I’m already yours forever.” A part of that is gospel—and the rest of its a lie of the highest order.
ELYSIAN (Celestra Series Book 8)
*(The final installment of the Celestra Series)
(Gage and Skyla in a confrontation)
Gage ticks his chin back and takes in a breath, incensed and angry with me of all people. We stare at one another a very long time with sorrow glossing our eyes, and yet neither of us is willing to let a single teardrop fall.
“Maybe that’s all this has ever been to you”— his brows swoop in like birds in flight—“one big game.”
My body comes to life with something just this side of rage.
“No Gage.” I stop shy of charging at him. “I’m not playing games. I’m through with games, now and forever.”
Hope you enjoyed~! Have a great week!
