Jessica’s Ten Favorite Lines from BRYCE: Galactic Defenders book one
(without any spoilers)

1 – Bryce raised his crossbow, lining his sights on the creature standing amongst the bushes, its branch-like tentacles undulating in the gentle breeze. Focusing the crosshairs on the alien’s torso, he drew in a deep breath. He had one shot. ==> These are the opening lines of the story. To me, it displays the intensity of the opening scene, and what is going to happen throughout the story.

2 – What child wanted to know her mother came from another planet? Or could keep the fact a secret?

3 – She’d heard the alien hunters used wormholes, but had never seen or traveled through one, and hoped to never again.

4 – “He’s probably really tired right now. Wasn’t very cooperative at first, but I managed to tame the beast.”

5 – Bryce had both Katrina and a young Kalaren on the ground doing push-ups. “Anytime you feel like releasing a little energy, this is what I want you to do.” He crouched in front of them while the other Defenders in the room watched in amusement.

6 – A little girl dashed out in front of her, jet-black curls bouncing along her shoulders. In her tattered white gown—probably a hand-me-down from an older generation—she stared up into her eyes, no reservations about approaching royalty. “Princess Lalia, where have you been? They taught us in school you were killed in the Erebus attack.”

7 – And what was she supposed to have told them? You must meet with me because I’m an alien princess? No doubt the truth would have landed her in a mental institution, or worse, a lab.

8 – A tiny head with jet-black hair peeked out from under a tree root. “Princess, is it really you?”

9 – “A planet has just been destroyed.” The thought of growling at the young Vella crossed his mind. Instead, he sidestepped him and headed to the control room to meet the leader of the Galactic Alliance. “There is no good news today.”

10 – “You may be responsible for sending them to Niesgoo, but you’re only responsible for their deaths if you leave them there to die.”

EXCERPT:

Bryce raised his crossbow, lining his sights on the creature standing amongst the bushes, its branch-like tentacles undulating in the gentle breeze. Focusing the crosshairs on the alien’s torso, he drew in a deep breath. He had one shot. If he missed, the Erebus would cry out and alert the natives of Terra to its existence, resulting in more casualties. At first glance, no one on the planet, also called Earth, would believe an Erebus anything more than an overgrown bush, but Bryce knew the truth. He’d trained to hunt the creatures from childhood.

Each step carefully placed, he advanced until he stood twenty feet from the Erebus, no chance to miss the shot. With a slight movement of his finger, he squeezed the trigger, sending a zuranium-tipped arrow racing toward the alien.

“Quinn, would you grab me another garbage bag?”

Fornax. The creature lunged toward the female voice, Bryce’s arrow stuck in one of its tentacles. A kill, but not instant.

He loaded another arrow. At the risk of being seen, he charged through the hedges. He had to cut the Erebus off before it had a chance to kill the Terran. He leaped over metal furniture and large urns, keeping his focus on the creature.

“What the hell? Get out of my yard!”

The woman rushed him, but Bryce darted around her. When the Erebus lumbered in front of him, he raised his weapon and fired. A clean shot to the middle. The creature dropped like a fallen log, crushing the furniture it landed on.

Bryce loaded the crossbow again. No time to celebrate the kill. He had to worry about the possibility of other Erebus in the area, along with the Terran woman who had seen him. Instead of running away screaming, as he’d expected her to do, she stared, wide-eyed in horror. Not at him, but the Erebus. Her body trembled as she shuffled backward, mumbling incomprehensible words.

An unexpected sense of familiarity washed over him. He couldn’t draw his attention away from her slim figure, the way her long brown hair flowed over her shoulders. Far more attractive than he’d pictured the Terrans when others talked about them. He took a closer glance. Lalia? How had she traveled so far from home without anyone knowing? She was no stranger, and definitely not Terran. Or, perhaps she was simply a doppelganger of the woman he’d once loved. He had the sudden urge to comfort her, relieve her worry. Hold her in his arms the way he had many years ago. But what if the missing princess had somehow made her way to a planet unaware life existed beyond their own? After she’d left Hemera and him behind without so much as a goodbye, he’d searched everywhere. Though not once had he thought to look on Terra.

A ground-shattering bellow pierced the night. Bryce spun around, finding himself face-to-face with another Erebus. It stared at him with beady red eyes. Thick black goop dripped from its mouth.

Bryce raised his bow, but the creature slammed him with one of its tentacles, flinging him back. The Erebus lunged at Lalia.

Rolling to his knees, Bryce aimed and fired. He hit the alien from behind, launching it forward. Onto his former lover. Slinging the bow over his shoulder, he raced toward her. The creature’s tentacles still pulsed, even though dead. Careful not to trip himself up, he shoved his hands under the creature’s torso and heaved it off her.

Lalia stood immediately and wiped the black goop from her clothes, as if she hadn’t been flattened by an alien. “They weren’t supposed to follow me. I was supposed to be safe here.”

Moon Bound by Michaela Rhua ~ “Girl to the Rescue” ~ #Lesbian #Paranormal @MichaelaRhua @EvernightPub

 

Girl To The Rescue.

I love a girl who can kick ass and stand up for herself. It has probably got to do something to do with trying hard to make my own decisions and step out from everyone’s expectations.

A sassy heroine who is independent, courageous and sexy grabs my attention every time. Misty is no different – she is the one who rushes to the rescue, not once but twice. But then when you’re a shifter who catches an unusual scent in the air a moonlit night, you have to go and find out where it leads. In Misty’s case it leads to Sofya and the chemistry between these two lead them to seek each other out for some night-time action of the intimate kind!

Oh dear me…things don’t go well after that!

Promo Slide 1

Blurb:
Under the glare of the full moon, friends and foes alike meet their destiny…

Wolf shifter Misty never thought she would rescue a damsel in distress, but when she stumbles across a bloodied girl on her run, she has to act fast. An action she ought to regret when that girl turns out to be Were shifter, and thus an enemy of her pack.

Feelings cannot be denied, however, and when she meets Sofya again, the girls give into their attraction for each other.

The path to true love is never smooth and tensions rise further when Sofya’s father is implicated in a shifter death.

Will this news tear the two lovers apart, and turn them into foes or can the moon bind them together to work out the truth?

 

Excerpt:

“What’s up? You okay?” Misty was confused about why she had suddenly stopped.

“This is weird. I feel connected to you like I want…” Sofya lurched forward, grabbed Misty’s face, and kissed her with such fierce passion that Misty was knocked back to the ground. Sofya’s lips were locked against hers in a way that spoke of possession. Misty was momentarily shocked into a frozen state. She was not usually the submissive one when it came to sex. However, this time, she was happy to go with the flow. Then her mind woke up and she gave her herself a kick in the butt. Get with the program. Misty pulled at Sofya’s thin clothing to get her as naked as she was. Sofya obliged by moving away so Misty could take her vest top off. Underneath were two heavy breasts and curves galore that made Misty’s mouth water. Dotted around Sofya’s body were fading bite marks. Misty gently kissed each one to take away the hurt they had caused. Then she pulled Sofya forward to suck each erect nipple and squeeze and massage those wonderful globes of flesh. Sofya moaned every time Misty sucked her delicious nipples and those little sounds of pleasure made Misty’s pussy tingle.

Sofya grabbed Misty’s hair, pulled her head back and kissed her with animal passion. A low growl came from Misty, who immediately pushed down Sofya’s joggers and grabbed her rounded ass.

Sofya released her mouth.

“I can’t explain this. All I know is that I have to have you right now, right here.” Sofya’s words caused Misty’s pussy to throb with need. She couldn’t believe how she longed to taste Sofya’s clit. Sofya was hot as hell and Misty knew deep down she had wanted her badly, even when she was recovering in hospital.

“Yes.” Misty nodded eagerly at Sofya.

Sofya licked and bit Misty’s nipples to the point of delightful pain. Misty wove her fingers through Sofya’s hair, enjoying the feeling of being pinned down under this luscious beauty. Sofya kissed down Misty’s stomach to her pubic mound and stroked the thin line of hair that went to Misty’s pussy. Gradually Sofya moved her fingers and went lower and lower, teasing Misty’s nether lips open.

“You smell like honey. I wonder if you taste like honey too.” Sofya didn’t wait for a response before she moved down to lick around Misty’s clit, then up and down faster and faster.

Misty spread her legs and rocked her hips to match the pace of Sofya’s tongue.

“Damn you’re good, Sofya. I order you not to stop,” Misty said through heavy breaths.

“Oh demanding, are we now? Well, yes ma’am,” Sofya replied huskily.

Misty’s brain was set to explode as soon as Sofya sucked on her clit whilst two fingers slid into her wetness. Colors danced before Misty’s eyes as Sofya pushed in and out of her. Sofya licked circles around Misty’s clit, then covered her clit with her hot, wet mouth and let her tongue have full reign. Misty was lost and she wasn’t bothered about being found ever again. Her body felt like it was on fire and her heart seemed to be beating out of her chest. When Sofya’s teeth grazed her clit, Misty’s orgasm exploded and her beast screamed into the night.

Interview with London St. James #Gothic #Paranormal @LSJRomance @EvernightPub

 

Good morning, London. Thanks for stopping by!
Congratulations on your newest release, “Rise of the Lost Prince”.

Thanks so much for having me! I’m super happy to be here. *Smiles* and does *Wiggles*

What can you tell us about the Lost Boys Series?
We’ve got some super sexy alpha males. Some evil darklings. A few battles. Some steamy moments of kissing (and other things) *Winks* A romance. An adventure. Oh, and Neverland which is an abandoned seaside amusement park in ruins.

What inspired you to write the series?
My muse had been pondering a story based loosely on Peter Pan, only with warrior types and a badass version of Peter, which is named Petúr. FYI, my muse is a bit crazy, because I was in the middle of writing another story, when the muse said stop and write about Neverland. Crazy as it might be, I listen to my muse, as I always do, sat the story I was writing aside for the moment, and brought Neverland and the Lost Boys to life. Problem was, the characters had much more to say. Maybe that’s not really a problem. *Smiles* But, we’ll see the rest of the cast of characters again, since Rise of the Lost Prince turned into the first in the Lost Boy series.

Will you be standing in line on Feb 14 to see the 50 Shades of Grey movie or will you pass?
I hate standing in lines. I only did that one time for a movie and I don’t want to do it again. I can’t stand all the crowding around me, so no I will pass on the whole line thing and watch the movie when it comes out in DVD format.

Name the biggest things about this business that make you frustrated?
Being a small fish in a big sea and trying to keep from being eaten alive by the sharks. Oh, wait. Did I just have a Finding Nemo flashback! *Smiles*

If you could write a book with any one author, who would it be?
Oh my gosh. That’s a super hard question. I love so many authors and their writing styles. It would be hard to pick only one author. I know. Why don’t you and I write a book together? It would be a blast!
Kacey: Would be a blast!! *g*

What are you writing next?
I have to take a moment and insert a *chuckle* here. I have so many projects on my plate I actually need a platter, or a whole dining room table to stack them all on. But, I’m really trying hard to work on book two of my Bad Boy Fever series. The follow up novel length book of my western erotic romance Novella length book Welcome to Paradise, called Trouble in Paradise. And, I could go on and on, but that would get boring. Let’s just say there’s no rest for the wicked! *Smiles*

Blurb:

They fight to protect those who would never welcome them into the human world…

Petúr always knew he and his brothers-in-arms were different. Something more. Something not human. Yet, he never expected to find out the truth of their origins, nor fall for a human woman whose father was set to destroy Neverland.

Ever since she was a child, Wyndi dreamed of an angel with eyes of the purest gold, although she never really believed such a man existed until she met the hauntingly beautiful Petúr of the lost boys.

With a prophecy to fulfill, a woman to protect, a portal to find, and evil darklings out for blood, will Petúr be strong enough to rise up and claim what’s rightfully his, or lose everything to a long-time nemesis, Grapple the Dark?

Excerpt:

“Where are we going?” Wyndi asked.

“My room.” Five rapid heartbeats later, they were inside his bedroom with Petúr kicking the door closed behind them. “I need to know something,” he said in his honey tones.

Wyndi glanced up at him from under her lashes, and shivered. He was staring at her with eyes glinting gold. The braid he wore in his hair dangled down the right side of his cheek, tickling her.

“What do you want to know?”

“This.”

Petúr bent his head, slanted his mouth over hers, tongue tasting the line of her lips until she parted them on an intake of breath. When their flesh met, she closed her eyes. Fireworks exploded inside her head, the luminous sparks floating, then falling, falling, and transitioning into a force crashing down over her—a title wave of longing. She moaned, tasting the summer sky, morning dew, the sweetness of rainbows, sultry nights, and rain storms.

Mind whirling, her body shifting, she was lying on her back, fingers tangled into the nape of Petúr’s satiny hair, the other hand pressed against the steely strength of his shirt-covered chest. Every part of her became aware of him on some sort of molecular level. Yet nothing could have prepared her for what she experienced when he tucked himself between her thighs and groaned. Heat slammed into her core. Her stomach quivered. Her panties dampened. An inferno. Yes, surely it must be an inferno which lapped at her skin while their tongues tangled into infinity.

****

Petúr was lost in an ocean of sensation, wave after wave, pulling him under. The connection to this woman beneath him was undeniable. Everything about Wyndi filled him up until there was nothing but her. Her taste. Her touch. Her scent. His chest expanded.

Damn, her scent. She tasted better than the cotton candy fragrance that wafted from her skin. Skin. Oh, yes, skin. That’s what he needed, to feel her soft skin against his.

“Wyndi.” He breathed, saddened to break the kiss, reaching over his shoulder, yanking the material of his shirt, lifting up with the other hand, and pulling the garment from over his head. “I must feel your flesh against mine.”

Her tongue darted out, licking her lips. Was she nervous? Well, he’d be the balm to soothe those nerves. He focused on her mouth. Those delicious lips were kiss swollen and moist, making his cock strain even more against the constraint of his pants.

“Okay,” she said in a small, breathy voice, the lids covering her blue eyes at half-mast.

He reached for the hem of the too big nightshirt covering the body he had to see, lifting until he revealed her little white panties and lacy bra covered breasts. Blood raced through his veins. He wanted to do everything with her. To her. Touch all over. Taste every inch of her. Put his fingers and cock into the tight, warm sheath he knew was awaiting him.

Take her. Hell yeah. Those two words became a chant within his mind. He wanted to take his woman in every position he could imagine and then some. His woman? Yes. Yes she was his, or would be. Slow your roll. You don’t want to scare her. He had to maintain. He couldn’t go at her like some out of control beast.

Leaning down, he kissed between the creamy mounds of her cleavage, skimmed his cheek across the apex of her right breast, watching goose bumps scatter across her flesh in a wanton invitation. Unable to stop himself from licking her, he lapped at her in one, long, lingering stroke, from the top edge of the bra, up her collarbone, only stopping because the material he’d lifted hindered his progress being bunched around her neck.

“Oh, hell,” he muttered. “You taste so good.”
