Paranormal Bite- NEW RELEASE- 8 sentence sunday 6/2/13

Hey Readers!


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.







 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 meeting with the head of the Brotherhood of the Blood Moon, Damien MacQueen, a veritable legend among the hunters. Damien is warning Nicholas about the sorceress Jacqueline and her vampire brother who are dangerous.







“I didn’t tell you that to make you pity her, or me,” Damien said, and his eyes burned with intensity as he focused on Nicholas. “I want you to be careful, don’t ever underestimate Jacqueline. Even if she doesn’t come after you herself, she might send someone like her brother to do it for her.”

“I’ll be careful, she won’t get to us, Tamara is…” He clamped his mouth shut, swallowing the words that would have condemned him in front of his boss. “She’s too important to the cause, I won’t let anything happen to her.”

His boss studied him for a long second, his eyes sharp with a falcon-like glint, as though he’d seen something and was still debating what to do about it. Nicholas tamped down the rising magic, which always surged to the surface when his emotions ran high; he couldn’t expose his feelings for Tamara, not in front of the man who was supposed to enforce the rule that kept him and the woman he loved apart.




Want to know what happens next and find out how Tamara and Nicholas survive a deadly lust spell cast by a vengeful sorceress?

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.

  9. Maybe the boss could understand and change the rule to make sure to keep them alive, after all Jacqueline should be the priority.

  10. Here's hoping that Damien didn't catch that. Though I'm curious why it's so forbidden for them to be together - especially since it looks like they don't even have the option of quitting their "jobs" so they can be together...
