Welcome to Snippet Sunday! It's been a while. I missed last week's post and will share why later :). Today, I have so much news to give you, but first, the snippet. :)
Last time, I posted about Sera Dionysios' dangerous attraction to a bad boy--Rafe Harcourt--who her mother warns against. But, can she help it? (The indents look wonky on the blog so please forgive me for that)
Start of snippet-->
She was naked in his arms, turning to putty, oblivious to the cold, her body now incandescent and pliable—his utter prisoner. Her shocking desires became a reality.
His eyes didn’t leave hers as he awakened each of her senses, one by delicious one, and told her with that act just how easily he could own her.
He bent down and claimed her lips in a kiss—a kiss like no other she’d had, not even with William.
He snaked his tongue into her mouth, exploring every nook inside, awakening every nerve ending within her. It warred with hers, because she couldn’t help abandoning herself to this erotic feeling. Only then did she close her eyes, denying herself the sight of him. Her body tingled with anticipation. She lulled her head back, exposing her neck to his touch, ready for him…
Then, as if floating outside herself, she noticed the puncture marks, the trail of blood falling down her porcelain skin.
She opened her eyes wide, once more inside her body. Arousal tinged with fear overwhelmed her.
He smiled, a half-smile, a wicked smile.
“I’m coming for you, Séraphine,” he said in that voice that was richer than velvet…
Then his expression changed—like landscape morphing from picturesque to feral and craggy. He reminded her of the doomed Heathcliff succumbing to madness and rage in the midst of the“Because your place is with me,” he finished, his talon-like fingers curling around her arms in a painful vise.
Yorkshire Moors. Dark shadows settled in his eyes, no kindness or desire discernible in their depths.
I know it's a bit long. I just couldn't decide which part to post! But I hope you enjoyed this one anyway! Now, I have a few things to share...
Today I'm doing a happy dance! I've been off for the last 8 days (which is why I was absent last Sunday - and still 2 off days to go. Time goes too fast when you're having fun!), taking a much needed vacation and keeping work to a minimum, but one thing Zee Monodee and I did do during this time: we prepped INESCAPABLE for publication. And it's now up on Amazon, Smashwords and Barnes and Noble!
Now can be downloaded from:

An immortal born from an unlikely alliance...
Beautiful mythic Greek heiress Adrasteia 'Adri' Dionysios has roamed the world for millennia, taking her pleasure where she wanted. Until one night, when Fate drops a baby wrapped in fire into her arms. Motherhood is a formidable challenge, but so is figuring out the identity of a mystery man who makes her pulse race.
A vampyre’s obsession…
Seraphine 'Sera' Dionysios' origins are shrouded in mystery. Torn between a mother whose blood saved her life, and a man who now possesses her soul, the only thing Sera can still cling to is her heart.
One rule matters above all others: Always protect the portal…
When Evil comes to Adri and Sera’s hometown of Shadow Bridge, a place where the mortal human world ends and the supernatural realm starts, it’s up to them to stop a prophecy as old as time itself...or die trying.
Praise for the first in this series has already trickled in...
Praise for INESCAPABLE:
“You won’t regret reading this series; you’ll regret missing it!”—Rebecca Royce, bestselling author of The Westervelt Wolves series.
“OMG … beautifully wrapped and weaved into a believable world…”
“I have no problem giving it 5 full stars. The writing is great, the story is great, the characters are believable. ”***
I can't believe what Zee and I have achieved since we first conceived this series in the summer of 2012. It first started as an idea for a trilogy, but quickly grew into a 15-book saga with so many twists and turns! Book 2, INDOMITABLE, is scheduled for release in September 2013 (cover reveal coming soon!), so there isn't a long wait :).
Over and out now, and I wish you all a great Sunday! Please don't forget to check the other cool posts on the Snippet list today, at the official FB group. Among them, Sharon Buchbinder, Sarah Wesson, AJ Nuest, Frank C. Etier, Vivien Dean, Karysa Faire, Sue Ann Bowling, Veronica Scott, Siobhan Muir, Claire Gillian, Jess Schira, and of course my bestie, Zee Monodee!
Hugs to all and 'see' you next week :).
