Paranormal Bite - Eight Sentence Sunday 5-19-13

Hey Readers!
Update: Just received a lovely award from fellow Author J. Rose Allister!



We've got another fabulous Sunday to indulge in eight awesome sentences! Here's an excerpt from my May 29, 2013 release of Blood Moon on the Rise.
(it came out early on Smashwords, click here to buy now!)





 Tamara and Nicholas the hero and heroine are members of a supernatural creature hunting society. An ancient law forbids them from falling in love and yet they were assigned as partners when they were fifteen years old. Now as adults, they are fighting the feelings which have only grown between them since they were teenagers. Here Nicholas is confronting a sorceress Jacqueline who put a deadly lust spell on him that almost killed Tamara.




Her prey was so close...
       A small crystal was tied to a leather band around Tamara Gilbert’s wrist. It hummed in a soft vibration against her skin as a warning of approaching danger. The magic trapped in the gemstone burned, getting her attention. Her breath quickened. Soon she’d be hunting. Her heart skipped a beat as a rush of adrenaline shot through her system. The effect was drugging; the heightened sensations, the heady sense of power, the knowledge that she had the advantage.


Want to know what happens next and find out how Tamara and Nicholas survive a deadly lust spell cast by a vengeful sorceress? Check back here on my blog or facebook for more details.

OFFICIAL BLURB:


Tamara wants nothing more than to protect the world from deadly paranormal creatures. Well, maybe she wants a little more than that. But the man she craves—Nicholas Rubin—is strictly off limits.


For years, Nicholas has been her loyal partner, helping to defeat murderous werewolves and take down unruly vampires.  Nicholas has always given Tamara his protection, friendship, and support. The only thing he hasn’t given her is his love. A relationship between Tamara and Nicholas is forbidden by ancient law, and the consequences could be deadly. 

But when a powerful Sorceress threatens both their lives, Tamara has a choice to make: Give into her feelings for Nicholas, and risk her life. Or take a chance on Nicholas, and receive his love—at a price.

  1. I loved this piece! You built the tension for me even as Tamara's exhilaration grew. Even when not facing down a sorceress, adrenaline can be a force for good or evil.
