Merry Christmas and the Tuesday tease~!

Merry Christmas! I hope Santa brings it all! Unless of course you've been naughty, then I hope he leaves a shirtless cover model in your oversized stocking to teach you a lesson or two. ;) 

ENTROPY releases this Friday! Yes! There's an end at last to Laken's story. I hope you enjoyed the stay the Ephemeral Academy. Laken, Cooper, and Wesley all wish you a Merry Christmas and hope you love the final ride. I had a blast with Entropy and I hope you will, too!

 On to the teasers!

ENTROPY (The Countenance Trilogy 3)

Prologue (Laken's POV)

   There is a shift in your mental state when death comes to knock you off balance—you become the odd pendulum, swinging too quickly—the clock on the wall with hands spinning out of control—the haunted door opening and shutting at an alarming pace for no one in particular.
   It is a dimension within a dimension, of sight and sound, with no eyes and no ears. You are the world’s. They can see you, touch you, feel you. You are so real in their fantasy it is almost unfair. But there is balance. After all, this is an orderly universe, created by an orderly God, who gives consideration to His every form of entropy.
   For so long, I thought I was lost, meandering, a still life on some incomprehensible canvas, swimming in the torrential river of someone else’s dream. Shattered, I watched as He put together the pieces, dislodged the bone of grief that dammed up the words I was choking on. The consolation came right on time but not before I walked through the valley of the shadow of death.

SUGAR KISSES (3:AM Kisses Book 3)

Roxy and Cole’s story.
 (Cole’s POV at the apartment while Roxy bakes in the kitchen.)

Roxy’s hair is spun in a knot with a wooden spoon driven through the beautiful mess. Her face is coated with powder. The entire kitchen looks as if a flour bomb went off, but her eyes glow like two hazel beacons warning me not to get too close or me and my dick will run aground faster than we did before.
I step in close behind her and lean in with my cheek less than a breath from hers. The warmth from her skin radiates over mine, and it takes a lot more effort than my testosterone-laden brain can muster not to steal another kiss off those pillow soft lips.
I swipe my finger through the batter and jam it in my mouth, moaning hard into her ear.
Roxy takes a breath, expanding her back over my chest. I go with it and tuck my lips into her vanilla scented neck.
She flicks the fork in her hand and a glob of batter blinds me.
“I never miss.” She glances down at my crotch. “Don’t you forget it.”

New Adult  17+

(Gage’s POV, Gage with Wesley)

“I’m pretty sure I’m going to kick your ass.”
His chest bucks with a silent laugh. “Wouldn’t that be a little like kicking your own ass?”
“No, it’ll be like kicking your ass, and I’ll make sure you feel it.”
“Try it but know I’ll fight back. By the way, I’m not into bruising—I’m into disfiguring. I’d like nothing more than inverting your baby blues—pulling your vocal cords out through your nose—so think twice before you threaten me.” He pulls me in by the shirt until we’re nose to nose. “Don’t you ever forget who I am and what I can do.” He shoves me into the wall before turning away.
I don’t waste a moment before kicking his feet out from under him.

Have blessed holiday!

Just finished entropy..I loved it! Couldn't put it down. So excited so many questions got answered and so many of my theories were right! Very excited to see that there will be more Laken, Cooper, and Wes in Celestra Forever After!

jstump - So glad you loved it! I really had a great time with that series. Until CFA... I can't wait to share more of their world with you as I combine the two series!

I love, love, love these books! I can't wait to see more of Laken, I love her! I think I might even like Laken a little bit more than Skyla. But I love them both. I am excited for Celestra Forever After, can't wait.
