#MidWeekTease Darkness of Light and Creatures Boxed Set

Firstly, I need to apologize for not commenting last week. I was in the field, working 12 hour days and just couldn't fit it in. I promise to do better this week! I'd like to share a little more from Kimberly Gould for this week's tease. Gina Kincade and Kimberly Gould are co-authors of Darkness of Light, one of several paranormal romances in the Creatures Boxed set.

So curl up on your sofa with a steaming cup of tea and PreOrder today if you dare brave the beasts!

Lucius pulled Reverie past the last trees and onto the edge of a cliff. It wasn’t a sheer drop, but far too steep to walk down. She grabbed hold of her strong companion in fear of falling.
“Hey, don’t worry. I’ve got you. Don’t look down, but out.” He stretched his arm out, gesturing at the series of gullies and canyons that connected over the miles ahead. With the sun set, she couldn’t make out details, but she could see the other hills and slopes, the pockets of dark that were trees, the lights of cars and houses in the distance.
“And once you’ve done that, look up.”

She craned her neck, and gasped at the bright stars. She’d always lived in the city, and although she’d seen pictures of the sky full of stars, the most she’d ever seen at a time didn’t make three digits. There were thousands of stars here. The whole sky, dotted with breathtaking brilliance from the distant hills to the trees just behind them.
Lucius’ breath traced over the curved shell of her ear. “You’ve never seen them, have you?”
“No.” She shook her head in disbelief. She tilted her chin down and her nose brushed along his ear, her cheek tickled by his free-flowing hair. The breeze flicked the strands up, back, and let them drop again.
“I’m glad I could show them to you.” He kissed her earlobe and then beneath, his breath fluttering over her neck.
She fisted the fabric of his shirt, not flat on his chest any longer, and turned her head to find his lips, her nose bumping up to his.
He brushed his lips over hers, his breath cool on her heating skin. He let the first peck fall short, catching the corner of her mouth, but Rev wasn’t about to let it end there. She slid her hand up into his hair and pulled him toward her again, pressing her lips against his, a unique but heady spiciness filling her mouth.
His hesitation evaporated and he trailed his hand over her hip, over her ass, caressing the globes before squeezing and pulling her tighter against him, fitting her hips to his. She could feel the hardness of his belt, and below his belt. It made the dampness below her waist obvious for the first time.
As great as the kiss was, and as curious as she was to experience what his jeans hid, this wasn’t the place, and she definitely needed to know him better. Even with her logical self, and a tiny pinprick of guilt from Dark Eyes’ message, it wasn’t easy to pull back.

Don't miss all the great contributions this week!

Skye Knizley ~ Fresh Blood ~ One of 20+ stories in Creatures #paranormal #romance #boxedset #99cents

Mythical Creatures With
SKYE KNIZLEY
Creatures Box Set



Creatures AmazonCreatures Kobo
Creatures iTunes Creatures B & N
I don't have a "favorite" mythical creature. There are, however, those I am interested in, one being the Skinwalkers of Native American lore. For some reason people think that Skinwalkers belong only to Navajo folklore, however that is not true. Most have some version of the Skinwalker, including my own ancestors. Navajo are just the ones who get all the press.

The consensus is that Skinwalkers are evil shamans (or witches) capable of changing their shape to that of various animals. Depending on the tale being stretched around a campfire, they can change shape at will, change shape only to those animals they have killed and eaten or are those who can don the skin of other creatures and take on their characteristics. The latter are of particular interest to me as villains. The ability to kill and impersonate another human is far more frightening to me than appearing as a wolf or bear. Disinformation and betrayal is what destroyed much of Native American culture to begin with, and impersonating a friend or loved one is the easiest way to betray someone.
I find the idea of magical transformation to be fascinating, and many of my villains are capable of such a feat, often in the most gruesome way possible. Many of my most memorable villains eat human hearts, skin their victims alive or pluck out their eyes and devour their souls. Think about that the next time someone you care about seems to be being weird and tell me it doesn't give you the creeps.








Teenage girls are going missing in the St Louis area only to reappear sliced into bloody, unrecognizable ribbons dropped along a lonely stretch of highway, leaving parents in a state of panic and the police baffled. Twin monster hunters, Jynx and Piper Kane, take the terrifying case, digging in where angels fear to tread in hopes of finding a link to the lycan clan that turned their brother and destroyed their family. 


As clue after gory clue leads deeper into the darkness that lies just beyond the glow of the city Jynx and Piper find themselves facing a terror like nothing they've hunted before. Something with no fear and no remorse. 

It's out there in the dark... and it's looking for Fresh Blood.

#MidWeekTease Winter's Embrace, take a cool dip.

As the temperature rises, for today's MidWeekTease, I thought I'd give you a taste of Winter. This is a snippet from Wayward Magic, which I believe is still available on Amazon (free in KU). Verte has accepted marriage to Grey to seal the peace between their races, but she didn't quite bargain for his appetites, or her own.

“Stop fighting me.”
She jumped when a chill ran down her back. Winter magic. She cried out when it turned into a stinging slap on her behind. It was followed by a warm rush, Fire magic, that pooled at the base of her spine, nestling low in her hips. Her breathing became heavy and deep. Her lips parted and Grey pushed in, pulling her tight to him. His cold hands sent a chill through her clothing and his lips were like ice, biting hers. Her tongue froze as well when his entered her mouth.
She raised her hands to push him away, protect herself. The freezing would burn. As she did, however, her Fire magic betrayed her. She gripped his shirt instead, returning his kiss with a passion of her own.
Her knees started to tremble and Grey picked her up. Although she quivered, she tried to fight, kicking and shoving. Icy bands secured her ankles and wrists, cold aching up her limbs. Thankfully, the bonds were over her stockings and sleeves, dulling the pain.
“Stop fighting yourself.” His lips were still close enough to brush hers as he whispered. “I can feel your heart race, and your eyes and cheeks just got browner, darker. You want this as much as I do.”
“No,” she argued, denying. “I don't want you to touch me. Put me down.”
“No. Not here.” He laid her on the floor in front of the hearth, a lonely ember still burning. Without releasing his ties, he ran a hand under her skirt. The stockings protected her for a while. She continued to fight his bonds but couldn't do more than twist. His fingers passed the top of her stocking to touch bare flesh. Fire magic flared and she gasped, arching. Her knees fell slightly open despite her conscious wishes otherwise. It seemed her body had ideas of its own.
His touch burned for only an instant, Winter to her Fire. She expected him to use his own Fire magic against her, once she'd managed to seal hers away again. It was obvious neither of them could resist the surging waves of pleasure that came with it.
His eyes locked on hers when they opened and no magic accompanied the soft caress of his fingers.

OUT NOW! Mallory’s Mark: Book Two in the Demons of Darkness series! @erzabetbishop #paranormal #vampire


🐺 Find Your next great read. 🐺

OUT NOW! Mallory’s Mark: Book Two in the Demons of Darkness series!
Amazon     Nook     Google     Kobo     Etopia Press

From USA Today bestselling author Erzabet Bishop 
Step into a stand-alone novel  of shifters, vampires and a succubus on the run from her past.


Hotter than Hell and eager for sin...

Mallory is having a bad year, even for a succubus. Her adorable dog has transformed into the Devil himself, and she can't catch a date without someone dropping dead in her wake. Now a hot shifter detective is on Mallory's trail, and things are about to get dicey. Even a trip for a cut and curl can't ease her spirits. After Mallory rescues a dog in distress, her luck might finally be turning around. Sometimes the one you save saves you right back, and maybe that sexy investigator will turn out to be exactly what she needs as well. But someone from Mallory's past has a score to settle, and her hot new boyfriend may just end up on the menu.

All that glitters could be murderous...

Detective Bryce Richardson is a werewolf on a mission. A murderer is stalking the city streets, and all signs point to one very gorgeous lady with a string of one-night stands and a growing pile of bodies. Watching her with her blind rescue dog tugs on his heartstrings, and he finds himself falling for his chief suspect, hook, line, and sinker. A true mate is hard to find and when his animal speaks, he's learned to listen. But can Bryce keep his head long enough to solve the murders, or will he be next in the killer's sights?

Amazon     Nook     Google     Kobo     Etopia Press



Bryce watched the blonde woman sitting alone at the table on the outskirts of the bar. Nursing his drink, he sloshed the remaining amber liquid in the glass and pondered going over and talking to her. Pretty and petite, he had a feeling she would be interesting to talk to. At one point, she’d met his gaze and something tripped inside him, making the bold comment he’d planned sink into wordless nothing.
His wolf howled, pacing beneath his skin, definitely interested, the call to mate nearly boiling under his skin. Was she any different than the others? Barflies, he was learning, were not helping in his search.
There was no mystery as to what that meant in the shifter world. His animal had found a woman he wanted as a mate. But that didn’t mean his human side necessarily agreed. He should be gearing up to go to his pack’s gathering, but none of the females had caught his interest. And if not now, he couldn’t imagine that would change in the two months when he was expected to go. All unmated wolves were required to attend.
Fuck that.
His mate was right here, staring him in the face. But she wasn’t a shifter, and he had to take care. It would have been so much more simple if she had been. Chemistry would have taken over, and that would have been that.
If he were smart he would walk away and just plan on going to the gathering. But there was something about her, drawing him closer like a fly to honey. He’d walked by the table earlier, and her scent had snared him, his cock hardening.
Huh. Fly. The irony of the thought made him cringe.
Bryce had seen her here once or twice before, but she’d been with two guys. The one from before and another guy. They’d always laughed and had a good time. But today she’d been down, barely meeting the other guy’s conversation from the looks of it.
Interesting.
His wolf rumbled in his chest, unhappy with his choice to remain an observer. But something told him all wasn’t as it seemed. As soon as the thought came, it went as he watched the woman his wolf wanted as a mate.
He’d brought other women home, but it was always her in the back of his mind. No matter the curves. But damned if she wasn’t always dating some other guy. The man she was with before had gotten up and left, but she’d stayed. Was she meeting someone here?
She’d danced with one of the guys from the bar, but one song later and she was back at her table, a new drink in hand.
It was now or never. Before some other asshole decided to get in his way.
And he was tired of keeping his distance.
Fuck it.
He stood, his pulse thrumming under his skin and made his way over to her table. Her blonde hair cascaded down around her heart-shaped face, her eyes twinkling with merriment as she took him in.
“Is this seat taken?”
She glanced up at him, a smile playing at the corner of her lips. “Not anymore.

#MidWeekTease Jaqueline and Heidi - What happens when you get what you've always wanted? #KU Prowlers & Growlers

Happy Wednesday! I'm going to share another excerpt from Changes, my transgender contribution to Prowlers & Growlers. You can snag a free copy in Kindle Unlimited or $2.99 on Amazon.

We've met Jacqueline, and Heidi has made an impact, but how are the two related?

“Ah!” He managed to push the panties out with his tongue and his full-throated agony rang clear to Heidi’s ears, masked by cars passing by to any curious pedestrians.
“Yes, yes.” She continued riding him, the heat mounting in her. “Tell me it hurt. Tell me how a little girl made you weep.” Her clit was rubbing against his thick, coarse pubic hair. Her pussy ached and burned, and the head of his cock was pressing into her on each stroke.
Although flush with anger, tendons popping out on his neck, he was still thrusting up at her, not to shake her off, but to sink deeper. “Fuck, fuck, you, you, argh!” His belly crunched and Heidi tipped forward, bracing on his chest and wiggling her hips, coming around that throbbing cock.
“Thank you, Felix. That was perfect.” She almost purred as she put her shirt back on. Walking away, she didn’t reclaim her panties.
“Wait, you can’t leave me like this.”
She looked Felix over, his chest and abs still exposed, jeans open. She picked up a box cutter and tossed it in his direction. It fell within his reach. “Good night.” Walking out, she closed the gate behind her. As soon as she did, she felt the change coming. Fuck. She was just starting to have a good time.

***

Jacqueline wrapped her arms around herself, sinking to her knees. The bra she wore slipped off her shoulders, hanging loose. She revealed more of her chest than she liked due to the shirt riding high and hanging low, which made the empty bra more obvious. The skirt was short, and for some reason, she had no panties. Her feet ached to be free of the boots that seemed to crush her toes inside them.
“You!” A man came out of the construction site and seized her by the shoulders, picking her up. She shrieked. His work shirt was unbuttoned, revealing a hairy, muscular chest and abs. He was strong, strong enough to really hurt her. It wouldn’t be the first time she’d been beaten for her gender identity, but she screamed and hoped someone would help her.
He set her on her feet right away. “You aren’t her. Where did she go? A girl with dark hair. I’m going to kill her.” He stormed away and Jacqueline shook. She looked at her hands, half-expecting them to be unfamiliar. She couldn’t remember leaving the apartment, but she had a sinking feeling she knew who the girl with dark hair was.

When a Valkyrie tossed out of Valhalla and the handler who can’t seem to mind his own business meet, sparks will fly.

Sorrows Beginning by S. E. Babin
International Bestselling and Award Winning Author
Sorrows Beginning
by
S. E. Babin
International Bestselling and Award Winning Author
(@hungrybiblio)


Tossed out of Valhalla, Sorrow Hawke is forced to adjust to human life. But it’s hard when the handler assigned to watch over her won’t leave her alone.
Sexy as sin, with a wicked grin and a body that won’t stop, Hayden is making Sorrow’s new attempt at a normal life difficult. He knows he’s supposed to keep his distance, but he’s always been a sucker for a damsel in distress.
But Sorrow is a Valkyrie. She might be a damsel, but the only thing distressing about her is her wicked temper and proclivity for violence.


 Ignoring my wishes for him to keep his hands off my pods, he reached in and made himself at home. Once the liquid finished brewing, he ignored my offer of the half and half and pulled the mug up to his mouth.
I couldn’t help the sneer of distaste forming on mine. “Only heathens drink their coffee black.”
Hayden’s warm gaze sparkled with amusement. His tanned throat worked as he swallowed. “Only wimps drink theirs watered down.”
I stiffened, resisting the urge to draw my sword. “Take it back.”
The mug lowered from his lips. “No.” He was still amused, but something had changed in those few seconds. Tension crackled in the air.
I took a step toward him. “Take. It. Back,” I enunciated each word slowly. “Only fools diminish the battle prowess of a Valkyrie.”
Hayden set his mug down on the counter. His posture was wary, but his gaze sparked with interest.
Heat spread from my chest down to my toes.
I realized I wanted to taste Hayden Summers. And not his blood. This was something different than battle lust. This was pure and simple heat.
I stopped in realization.
No. We were both playing with fire.
I swallowed hard and took one step back, but Hayden wasn’t done with me. Faster than a snake, he reached out, grasped my arm, and slammed me into his chest.

Hi, everyone! I’m Sheryl. I write lighter paranormals and mysteries.

How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I’ve been writing forever, but began to seriously pursue the art about four years ago. I started my first (terrible) book in high school and never looked back.

How did you come up with this storyline?
I’m obsessed with all things mythology and thought it would be fun to write about a cast out Valkyrie.

What are the best and the worst aspects of writing? 
The best - all the coffee I get to drink and no one judges me. The worst? Edits or finding something in your manuscript that you cannot interpret. It always makes me think what in the heck is wrong with me and what was I trying to say??

What inspires you to write?
The every day. Writing is my outlet.

How did you conduct your research for Sorrow’s Beginning?
I’m more versed in Greek mythology than Norse, but I still have some knowledge. Basically I needed locations and some creature names.

What are 3 of your favorite quotes from Sorrow’s Beginning? 
"They are designed to hunt prey. Any warrior worth their salt cannot watch a cat for more than an hour and not realize they are constantly plotting to kill their human servants.”

"You leave here and stalk my window each day and night?" I asked, thoroughly confused.

I couldn’t help the sneer of distaste forming on mine. “Only heathens drink their coffee black.”

Any more Favorites from Sorrow’s Beginning:
The cat puzzle was my favorite passage.

What would your friends say is your best quality?
Honesty. They love it and they hate it.

Are reader reviews important to you? Why?
Of course they’re important! Readers are an author’s lifeblood. Without them and their feedback, I’d be writing for no one. And that wouldn’t be very fun.

What do you do when you don’t write? Like in “Real Life”
Prior to being a writer, I was in the military for a long time.

Tell us about your other books?
My other books are quite a bit lighter than this story, but they are all based on some form of mythology. I have a Greek mythology mystery series where Aphrodite is the main character. I also have a twisted fairytale series where Snow White leads the story.

If you could share one thing about yourself that you would like readers to know what would it be? 
Hmmm. I can make a mean cupcake! Plus, I’m working on a lot of new books, and I hope they check my work out!

Thanks so much for having me today!



S.E. Babin is an award-winning author with a passion for writing books with a paranormal twist. Whether it's romance or mystery, she loves taking the norm and turning it into the extraordinary. Her love of reading turned into a curious exploration to see whether or not she could write her own novel. Beginning with discarded pages of angsty novels and a slightly popular reimagining of Beowulf's Grendel in her high school English class, Sheryl spent way too much time in the library, killing any chance of her becoming a cheerleader or anything even remotely cool.
