Getting Excited....How About an Excerpt?

So, again, I'm going to bemoan how horrible a blogger I am, and promise to do better. It's been a LONG time since my last post *blushes* But I promise it was for good reason. I finished two manuscripts, so that counts for something...right? :) The first of those manuscripts, Piercing the Darkness, Shadow Born Book 2.5, will be available from Samhain Publishing in April of 2015. The second is still under review by my editor, but I'll keep you posted!

So now that things have calmed down a little, it's time to get geared up for the release of FADING LIGHT. Have I mentioned how excited I am about this book? Because I am...VERY excited. Fading Light starts a few months after Shadows of Fate ends. Brenna and Gray come back to the Earthly plane to find they've been gone far longer than expected (time works differently in the different planes). The city is in chaos, and humans are randomly turning into dust. 

My goal was to make Fading Light a thrill ride from beginning to end, but, more importantly, to develop the relationship between Gray and Brenna. They've got a ton of hurdles to jump over before they can trust each other again.

I hope you enjoy FADING LIGHT. It will release September 23, 2014 from Samhain Publishing. You can buy a copy by following this link (or clicking on the book cover on the side of my blog). To celebrate that its book birthday is less than a month away, here's an excerpt. Enjoy!

Darkness embraced Brenna like a thick wool blanket. It wrapped around her, blocking the dim lamplight as she walked toward the seedy bar. Glass residue from the riots crunched beneath her leather boots. Mixed with snow, the bits of broken beer bottles and smashed windows glittered like an army of broken icicles. She breathed deeply, inhaling the cool night air. It smelled of sour beer and clove cigarettes and left a bitter taste on her tongue.
Shadows embraced the sides of the stone structure that housed the Dirty Ruby, one of the few multi-species bars in Denver proper. They stalked across the snow and mixed with the night to merge into a black mass. From its midst stepped a man. Well over six feet, he moved with grace in contrast to his size. The moonlight played across his face, highlighting his chiseled features.
Brenna’s pulse quickened and she took an involuntary step forward. Self-conscious, she ran a hand through her copper curls, freeing them from the careless bun. The thick strands streamed down her back like fire as she moved, her breath coming in quick harsh bursts. She slipped off her black leather duster and draped it across her arm. Without it the tight black corset left her taut belly and back exposed, but she didn’t feel the cold. She never did around Gray.
“Four demons. Thirty humans. Keep the casualties to a minimum.” Brenna brushed past him, tossing him her coat. “I’ll bring them out. You send them back to hell.”
“Hell?” Gray grinned. His teeth gleamed in the moonlight. “You speak human now?”
She shrugged. “When in Rome.”
Her back to him, she turned toward the freshly white-washed door. But before she could move, he had her shoulder in a vise grip. His fingers twined in the hair at the base of her skull. His breath hot against her cheek. “I know your other partners let you boss them around.” He turned her to face him. “I’m not them.”
He stepped forward, forcing her back. They moved in an awkward dance until her ass hit the stone wall. Trapped, she stared at him, wary. A shadow fell across his face hiding all but his piercing violet eyes.
“We enter together. Once they’re dead, we leave.” He stepped back, loosening his hold.
“The humans—”
“Won’t remember a thing.” He crushed his lips to hers even as he slid the duster across her shoulders. “And I’m not your coat rack.” Releasing her, he stepped back.
Brenna rubbed the back of her hand against her bruised lips. Gray would be the death of her.
If she didn’t kill him first.
She leaned against the wall to regain her bearings as he stepped into the light. He moved like a jungle cat. Ropes of strong muscles slid beneath his bronzed skin as his wild untapped power stirred beneath the surface. Akin to a force of nature, he would never go unnoticed. Even incognito, only a fool wouldn’t recognize Gray was dangerous. He was a beautiful, powerful thing to behold. And he was hers.
If she wanted him.
His black hair shimmered in the pale lamplight. It was tied with the usual brown leather strap, but a few pieces had slipped free. They curled around his face, softening his features. The sight of him stirred memories of what they had been to each other. Memories she had struggled for nearly a hundred years to repress. But she still wanted him with a fervor that was both frightening and exhilarating.
A sigh slipped from her lips as she pushed off the wall to follow him into the bar. Wooden planks creaked beneath their feet as they stepped inside. The room was crammed wall-to-wall with sweaty bodies. Humans surged on the dance floor, moving in chaotic abandon. Brenna stripped off her duster. The heat from the wood stoves was overpowering. Sweat beaded on her forehead. It dribbled down her face, sliding across her bare skin to pool between her breasts.
She threw the duster on the seat of a red plastic booth then slid in beside it. Her leather pants moved across the slick fabric like silk as she took a quick inventory of the room. Humans clanked beer bottles together, their shouts drowning out the death metal band screeching in the far corner. She closed her eyes to focus and searched for her prey. It took several minutes, but she found what she was looking for. The stench of rotten flesh and brimstone. It was subtle, but unmistakable. The demon was here, but he wasn’t alone.
Her seat shifted as Gray slid into the booth beside her. “This is new. They don’t usually hunt together.” He tossed a muscular arm across her shoulders.
Brenna leaned into his body. Her head against his chest, she breathed him in. He smelled of sage and wood smoke. “I doubt they’re aware of each other. Demons are territorial. They don’t play nice, and they’re not that bright.”
Gray shrugged. “There’s a first time for everything.”
He brushed a stray curl from her face. Unable to resist, she closed her eyes and enjoyed the simple touch.
“You take the males. I’ve got the females.” His breath was hot against her skin.
Her body tightened. She pulled back, a false smile playing on her lips. Beneath it she cursed her inability to keep him at a distance, even on a job. With a quick nod, she tossed back the shot of whiskey he shoved across the table. She leaned into him, her hands pressed against his chest. “We’ll meet at the van.”
“Agreed.” Gray kissed her lips. “Sam knows the drill.”
She could still taste him as he walked away, and that treacherous part inside her yearned for more. The best way to blend in was to act like a couple, but they needed another option. She was already sexually frustrated, and the night had barely begun. But there was nothing more cathartic than a good hunt.
Brenna glanced at the demon. It lounged on a barstool, deep inside a human man around thirty. With a bored look, he watched as a young woman, her shirt in tatters on the dirty floor, straddled him. Her skirt hiked to her crotch, her body trembled as he drained her life force. A second woman stood behind him. Clad in tiny purple panties and a lace bra, she swayed to the music. Glassy eyed, breasts heaving, she waited her turn. It was disgusting.
It had been a human war that had ripped through the Veil between the planes of reality, and the humans had paid the price. Supernatural creatures, the humans now called deviants, had poured onto the Earthly plane, only to be trapped once the Veil had healed. The humans had managed to survive the onslaught by allying themselves with sympathetic deviants, but they had gotten too comfortable. And the demons were taking full advantage.
Brenna slammed the shot glass on the table. Time to play human.

Finding Meaning

Okay.  First be warned.  I don't do a lot of posts that aren't centered around writing, but this is one.  As many of you know, the past two months have been a little stressful for our family.  Between my hospital stay and subsequent surgery, it has been a whirlwind of activity.  But, even so, the past few months have been a blessing, filled with new found strength and determination.  Enter Father's Day. 

To say Father's Day is difficult for me would be a gross understatement.  Despite the fact I have a step-father who loves me unconditionally and has always been there for me, I still struggle with the relationship (or lack thereof) I had with my biological father.  Maybe it's selfish (probably), but I always wanted to have a relationship with the man who helped bring me into this world.  And I did, too a point.  But not the one I wanted, or needed.  My biological father passed away almost five years ago and I was with him with he took his final breaths.  In the end, we made peace.  I'm lucky in that, because I know a lot of people who get a lot less.  But, even so, I wanted so much more. And the emotions attached to that desire elevate around Father's Day. 

Believe me, this isn't a pity party.  I am very blessed in my life and the men that are in it.  This is a reminder.  The trials we face in life make us the people we are, and cement the relationships we have with the people around us.  So look around you, grab the people you love and give them a hug.  Plant a kiss on their forehead.  Tell them you love them. Because that's what life's about....the people you love and who love you. The rest of it is simply filling.

Cover Reveal -- Fading Light

Today is the one month anniversary of the release of Shadows of Fate.  To celebrate, I'm going to give you a sneak peak at Fading Light, Book 2 in the Shadow Born Series. So without further ado, check out the AWESOME cover for Fading Light, crafted by the incomparable Kanaxa. 

 Shadow Born, Book 2

Everyone Has Their Breaking Point

Her hundred-year penance lifted, Shadow Bearer Brenna Baudouin returns to the Earthly plane with her partner, Gray Warlow, to keep the peace between humans and supernatural creatures—and to prevent another apocalyptic war from happening.

The attraction between them is nearing a critical point, but their checkered history has left Brenna unable to trust either her heart or her instincts.

It’s chaotic business as usual until humans begin turning to statues of dust. There is no explanation, no sign of magical foul play or a biological toxin. The humans are convinced it’s the work of a deviant supernatural faction, twisting the knife in the already tense relationship between their species. Brenna and Gray agree—the deaths have a former comrade-turned-rogue stamped all over them.

In a race against time, they enlist the help of both friend and foe to save the human race and stop the impending civil war. Along the way, they are forced to come to terms with their past and decide, once and for all, whether they will come together or fall apart.

Warning: Contains a heroine who knows her weapons but not her own heart, an outbreak of supernatural proportions, copious bloodletting, and a race to save an endangered species—humans. All tied up in a tight bow of sexual tension.
