Her pulse kicked under my fingertips. Confusion beat harder through her energy.
My gaze dropped to her slightly parted lips, and the memory of our kiss exploded in my mind. It was the only word that seemed accurate enough for the way her lips had felt: explosive. Her mouth had been soft. And God, when she had opened to me, when she had let me in... When she’d submitted, I’d lost all control. I’d felt every sweep of her tongue gliding along my nerve endings. She’d tasted like cranberries and blood; a bitter-sweet mixture, but it summed her up
so well. She was bitter-sweet: a heady mix of vulnerability and independence, hard around the edges, but with a soft centre she tried so desperately not to show, and yet, had failed because
whether she realized it or not, from Day One, she had let me see all of her.
“Bren—”
I pressed my thumb against her lips, silencing her

Blood Secrets

Blood Series: Book Two



Blurb:

When your life is messed up to begin with, how much worse can it really get?

Heather Ryan's life has never been simple. The latest in a long line of descendants who have made it their mission to hunt down and slay the Ancient Vampire, Marko Pavel, she is also the first born Infected. Up until recently, the biggest downside to living with the Vampyrric Virus was simply that she craved blood, but after receiving a DVD from her deceased Grandmother Sofia and being kidnapped with friend and so called guardian Werewolf, Brendan Daniels, she quickly discovers that she is also the inspiration behind the Vampires’ attempt to create a whole new breed of super monsters—Hybrids.

The truth comes at a cost, but how much does one have to sacrifice to gain success?

Following the breadcrumbs left by her psychic Grandmother, Heather and Brendan find themselves in new territory. Venice is where Heather hopes to find Marie, the second Bloodling of Marko, along with Brendan's three taken Pack members. But an old Peace Pact between the Italian Pack and the Colony means they are left hunting blind, and due to the Italian Alpha's reluctance to believe their story of kidnap and experimentation on Loup-Garous, time is running out. So when help comes from an unlikely source, they have no choice but to accept.

All families have secrets, but blood can't lie.



Caught up in an intricate and complicated scheme spun by the one she trusts the most and the friend of her enemy, Heather soon discovers that she is the pawn in a plan she would never have been able to conceive. But how many of her new allies were in on the game, to begin with?


This title contains explicit language, violence, and some scenes of a sexual nature.

Can another dance help them forget the pain of the past?

Eden and Janine were best friends throughout their childhood and early teenage years. Then something happened that shattered their friendship, leaving Eden devastated and confused. Ever since her efforts to sort things out with Janine failed miserably, Eden has avoided her ex-best friend. Unfortunately, she can’t avoid her forever, since Eden’s sister is marrying Janine’s brother.

Thrown together in the same room for the first time in years, can the two women finally put their issues behind them and move on? Or is their shattered friendship beyond repair?

Excerpt:

Eden had been dreading this day since the moment her sister, Carol, had announced she was getting married. A wedding was supposed to be a happy occasion, a cause for celebration. But not when your sister was marrying the brother of your ex-best friend.
Eden had done a successful job of avoiding said ex-best friend for ten years, crying off any get-togethers, school reunions, and even her sister’s engagement and hen parties. Understandably, it had made her incredibly unpopular with Carol and their parents, but she’d had to put up with their displeasure for the sake of her own sanity.
Today, though, Janine or no Janine, Eden was going to her sister’s wedding. It was kind of crucial, really, given she was chief bridesmaid. She was just thankful that Janine hadn’t been asked to be a bridesmaid. That would have been problematic.
“I honestly don’t understand what happened between the two of you. What made you fall out so badly that you still want to avoid her?” Carol was asking, as the hairdresser put the finishing touches to her up-do, then settled her tiara on top of it, leaving the attached veil trailing down her back.
Well you wouldn’t, would you? Eden thought, trying hard not to let her emotions show on her face. You’ve never been confused about your sexuality and come on to your best friend, have you? But she kept quiet, determined not to ruin her sister’s special day.
“Can you even remember what happened?” Carol continued, thanking the hairdresser and standing up. She moved over to the full-length mirror in the room and examined herself from every angle. The hairdresser held up another mirror so the bride could see the back of her hair. She nodded.
“Yes,” Eden replied shortly, then added, “You look beautiful, sis. Really gorgeous.”
Inside her head, though, she was already reliving that fateful night.

When Jordan can no longer stay silent, he gathers his courage and tells Pierre what he knows. To his surprise and relief, Pierre believes him, and Jordan finds an ally… and maybe more. Pierre vows to do what it takes to protect Jordan and Jeremiah and see justice done. He’s willing to fight for the man he’s growing to love and the family he’s starting to think of as his own. But Crawford is a powerful and dangerous enemy, and he’s not above ripping apart everything Jordan and Pierre are trying to build in order to save himself….

Excerpt:

The last place Jordan wanted to be was sitting at his desk outside Judge Crawford’s chambers, but there he was. He’d taken Jeremiah to his mom’s and kissed his still-warm forehead before leaving. His fever had spiked once during the night, and then he’d thankfully cooled off after a little while and slept through the rest of the night. This morning he’d said he was hungry, so that was a good sign. Still, Jordan would rather be with Jeremiah than here. But there was no way he could do anything out of the ordinary. There was way too much at stake.
“How’s Jeremiah?” Pierre asked as he came in, causing Jordan to jump nearly a mile.
He took a deep breath to try to cover it. “He’s doing better.” Jordan smiled and looked up from the file he was printing. He needed to make sure everything was set and on his desk for the day. Jordan’s fingers shook a little as he typed, and he glanced over at Pierre. “Shouldn’t you check out the room and make sure everything is safe… or something?” God, all he wanted was for Pierre to not be standing there looking at him or he’d start to sweat. First, because Pierre was hot as hell and just looking at him sent ripples of heat racing up and down his spine. Secondly, he liked Pierre. He was a nice guy who had come to his rescue last night, taking him and Jeremiah to the hospital and making sure they were okay. But third, he was freaking out, and that trumped everything.
Jordan wasn’t sure who he could trust. He needed this job, and he needed to not rock the boat so he could get Judge Taylor to finalize Jeremiah’s adoption. Nothing else mattered other than making sure the little boy who had taken up residency in his heart and home got to stay there.
“There’s no need to be nervous or anything,” Pierre said, watching him intently.
“I’m….” Jordan pushed back his chair. “Hell, I don’t know what’s going on, okay? I just need to get this done before the judge gets in. I don’t know anything, and I’m not involved in anything.” God, he had suddenly become infected with a case of verbal diarrhea. He needed to shut the hell up and get back to work.
Heavy footsteps sounded outside the door, and Jordan returned his attention to his computer and printed the last of the case documents. Somehow he managed to get the documents together and on his desk just as the judge walked in.

"...I’m here because I need to be..." #SexySnippets from Blood Secrets


It's Sunday so it's time for a Sexy Snippet. Today's 7 sentences are taken from  Blood Secrets (Blood Series: Book Two). 

This snippet carries on from last weeks, which you can read here.

Italy was hot even in October—the first thing I had noticed once I’d landed, but it hadn’t bothered me until this very moment. Right now, it felt like a fire had been lit under my skin, the sensation not helped by the sharp pinch of my Wolf digging his claws in my gut or the
insane urge I suddenly had to bite the graceful curve of her nape, to mark her. An urge that had my stomach in knots, and although part of me knew I needed to step back, I couldn’t move, couldn’t stop touching her.
She’s here. She’s fine. Everything is fine. Get your shit together already.
“I told you it wasn’t time for me to leave you.”
She rolled her eyes. “Yeah, well, I wouldn’t trust everything my grandmother says. Not anymore.”
“Hey?” I cupped her cheek. “I’m not here simply because Sofia wanted me to be. I’m here because I need to be, and because I want to be."
