She is not waiting for her prince to come save her on his white horse. She simply desires love, to feel human love again and will do anything to protect the love of Justin. 



When Justin discovers the truth about who and what she is, will he still love her? Will he still want her? Find out, as their hearts collide in this epic tale of love.

Excerpt
Chapter 7:
 
 “Why did you not give her a chance? Then maybe
you would be…”
“She isn’t you.
No one makes me feel like you do. No one,” I said and she looked over at me.
“You still
believe that? After all I have put you through? After all I have done?”
“Yes. I believe
it. I know it.”
“But you must
realize, that I am not what you thought I was. Don’t you?”
“Yes. I know
that.”
“But, I do not
understand. Does it not upset you?” she asked.
“Yes. It upsets
me. But you owe me the truth, and you are going to tell me the truth now,
right? No more lies?”
“Yes Justin. And
then, maybe you will go running to that girl. Maybe you should go after her
right now. There may still be a chance.”
“No. I don’t run
away. That is your thing.”
She sighed and
sat on the edge of the bed, naked. She turned her back to me. I looked at her
back, so sexy. Shoulders strong and defined. She had her arms across her chest.
She knew I was going to ask the questions. I think she was mentally preparing
herself for the blows.
“Go ahead
Justin. Ask.”
“First of all…
You’re not gonna tell me that you have to work in the morning, are you? Because
I ain’t falling for that shit anymore,” I said. It just slipped out of my
mouth. Like I didn’t have a filter between my brain in my mouth.
“No. I suppose
you would not.” She turned to look at me.
“And you are
staying here with me, right? I am going to have the pleasure of your company
during the day? Right?” I pressed, as I felt my anger rising.
“Yes, I will
stay. But I cannot go out with you during the day. You will have to keep the
shades drawn. It is just not that simple to explain.” She kept her head down as
she spoke these words.
“Fine. I can
handle that. Tell me, what exactly would happen if I did open the shades
Ambra?”
“I would burn up
and die,” she stated, flatly.
“What are you
Ambra? Are you ready to tell me to my face now?” I was insistent. “Because I
really need to know.”
“I am…” She
started and then, she became silent again.
“Say it, dammit!
I want to hear you say it to me,” I was really getting pissed.
“I am a
monster,” she whispered.
“What? What kind
of monster? You tell me God dammit!” I yelled.
“A vampire,” she
said it so quietly, keeping her back to me.
“You turn around
and say it to my face. You have kept this from me for so long. I want you to
look me in the eye! I deserve it!” I grabbed her shoulders as I yelled at her.
She turned to me, tears flowing down her cheeks.


“Justin, I am a
vampire.”

***
Wehr Wolff Castle
The Wehr Wolff Chronicles Book 1
by B. Bentley Summers
Genre: Historical Horror, LGBT
***
During the rise of Nazi Germany, Hagen Messer joins the Royal Air Force as
an American soldier who specializes in tracking. He’s attached to
British commandos and given a seemingly simple mission—to find a
captive and destroy a dam—but everything goes awry. Hagen’s plane
crashes into Germany’s Wehr Forest and he has to use his
extrasensory abilities to track the captive to nearby Wehr Wolff
Castle, a secret Nazi base where vile experiments are being conducted.

Hagen and his surviving team members must sneak into the castle and devise
a way to destroy the experimental labs creating diabolical creatures.
Hagen is horrified to find Nazis and scientists with no scruples, and
at the most inconvenient time, he learns that he may be in love with
one of his teammates, an Irishman named Liam. In order to protect his
love and his friends, Hagen must feign nonchalance amidst pure
degeneracy and suspicion. Hagen soon discovers, though, that he is in
over his head.
What may not only redeem him, but also save his lover and friends, is a
childhood past and a darkness lurking deep inside him, just waiting
to be engaged.

Bryce is a psychologist, author, and the founder of Queer Sense
Theory.

Bryce writes popular fiction genres meant for all audiences under Bryce
Bentley Summers, and pens gay fiction under B. Bentley Summers,
although he’d argue that anyone would enjoy his gay fiction pieces.
Bryce’s full time work is at the Veteran Affairs where he has been employed
for five years. He has extensive history of working with people
diagnosed with PTSD and he used these experiences when writing Fresh Meat.
The novel, Fresh Meat, recently won Dan Poynter’s Global eBook Awards for
best gay fiction. This piece is more than just a book, but embraces
gay identity while deploring the hateful violence that happens in the
U.S. prison system, and across the world. The book parallels the
vicious Man-Punk prison system to the long ago abolished American
Slavery System. However, Fresh Meat is not non-fiction, but fiction,
and it’s genre is best described as Supernatural Horror.
Rotville and The Zombie Squad, are two of Bryce’s recent completions. The
Zombie Squad is a teen Post-Apocalyptic Thriller that recently
received Reader’s Favorite 5-Stars. This novel has humor and is fast
pace, that follows four teens in New Orleans who find themselves not
only chased by psycho gangsters, but in the middle of zombocalypse.
Rotville is a new adult/ adult Sci-Fi Post-Apocalyptic Horror that
takes place in the near future, in a city called Rotville where
people with a rot disease are quarantined. Inside this city is the
mega prison Colleseo, where inhumane experiments are carried out on
inmates. It’s also the birthplace of Dylan, a super soldier who must
fight his way out, save a couple of youths from the new deadly
mutants, and keep from being re-caught by the greedy director.
Bryce is also the author of the fiction Young Adult Dark Fantasy/ Sci-Fi
series AMEN TO ROT. The novel NYTE GOD is the conclusion to this
series. The Amen to Rot series and Nyte God pit Ace and his friends
against alien invaders who are turning humans into mutant creatures.
Bryce authors popular fiction with a style that entices readers of all
backgrounds to consume, and makes every attempt to make his
characters diverse.
As noted, Bryce does dabble in gay fiction, and pens it under B. Bentley
Summers, though in truth, these works are meant for everyone to read.
Bryce is the founder of Queer Sense, a theory that describes how
people form attitudes. The theory provides insight into how specific
components in cultural contexts shape our beliefs and values, which
ultimately form our attitudes. The nonfiction book, QUEER SENSE: How
Are Attitudes Formed? A Revolutionary Guide for Teens, Parents,
Mental Health Professionals and Anyone Interested in Queer Theory, is
due out by 2016.

Secret of Souls by Aubrie Nixon – Book Tour + #Giveaway

10/10/17

 

          The
feeling the Iter gives me is unique. I have tried other drugs, of course, but
the Iter is specific with its high. I see things that are unexplainable, things
that any sane person would call disgusting. But since I am not sane, I continue
to crave the dark and disturbing visions that the Iter gives me.
          Some
of us don’t survive the Iter. You die flying on a cloud of pure bliss as you
fade into oblivion. Those of us who survive our first encounter are treated
like kings and queens. We are rich beyond measure and could have anything we
could ever dream of. Riches, cars, clothes, mansions, fame–anything we want, it
is ours. It is the least they can offer us. But, after having the Iter, we want
nothing but to feel the release and music it brings. We are the Iter’s muses,
and we need it as much as it needs us. We are one.
          I
lie there with black leather pants and a dark lacy bra on. My hair is done in
an elegant bun, and I have been painted with enough makeup that I might rival
them for their beauty. I cannot feel anything from the neck down. All of the
feeling in my body is gone. But for the time being, I can see things as they
do. The world is brighter. The colors I can see are vast–more than any human
brain can even begin to fathom. The first time I tried the Iter I wanted to cry
at the beauty that surrounded me. But of course I couldn’t. I have no control
of my body. I can do nothing but stare at the lovely room, and them.
          The
room is a garden in a large greenhouse near campus. The grassy ground is the
most lovely shade of pure emerald green. I can see dew drops on the flower
petals that surround me. I lie on a bed of fresh, blood-red roses on a table in
the middle of the garden. The trees are of varying heights and colors. Pinks
and reds, shades that I dream about when I am not here. The night sky is a dark
purple, and the stars shine brighter than even the sun.
          The
mirror on the ceiling shows me the scars on my pale skin. They are of varying
colors and age. The ones that mark my stomach are many sizes for different
organs. I watch as they place plates and trays around my body, filled with bloodied
meats and liquids. I am the main event tonight, the center of everyone’s
attention. Therefore, my table is the most exquisite. I watch as the masked
ones bring in the guests. They are the Elite, the powerful ones. They have paid
more money than I could ever accumulate in a lifetime to be here. They are here
to see me, to be able to be next to me. It is the highest honor to be the main
event.
          The
music starts as the Iter takes hold, and I become its puppet. I am surrounded
by a dozen of them. They are dressed in finery and expensive jewels. They
whisper excitedly as they take in the spread on of the table, and their eyes
rake over me hungrily. The chef welcomes them and introduces me: Elana Arravey,
20, of Norse descent. Diet: Sparkling water, strawberries, pineapples, and low
protein. The crowd applauds excitedly. The chef murmurs a few words in their
language, and then she cuts into me. Blood trickles down my chest as she cuts
open my skin. Servants catch my blood in champagne flutes, and pass it out to
the ravenous crowd. I feel the chef’s hand inside of my chest, as she reaches
inside me, through my sternum, and grabs my heart. I watch as she pulls it from
my chest. It pulses with life, blood squirting from the valves, painting the
chef’s pale, white hand like fondue. It’s beautiful. She places my heart in a
bowl.
          The
bidding starts at 1 million. I watch in the mirror as the heart is bid on by
the room. The pulsing never stops, filling the bowl with my blood. The crowd
grows frenzied as the bidding war continues. 2 million, 3, 4, 5 million. We are
down to three guests left bidding. 6, 7, 8 million. Two guests. 9, 9.5, 10
million. Going once, twice, three times, sold!
          My
heart, sold for 10 million dollars. A hush goes over the room. It is rare that
a heart goes for 10 million dollars, but it is the first time this organ has
been touched. It is a trophy to take someone’s heart for the first time. The
one that gets to taste my heart comes to claim his prize. I wish I could see
him. I hear the crowd murmur their excitement as the chef takes the bowl from
the servers and places my heart on a silver platter. I can hear him lick his
lips as he reaches for my heart. I smile as he licks it, the blood dripping
from his mouth. Just a taste.
          It
is over in mere seconds, as the chef whispers words in their language again and
places my heart back into my chest. She positions her fingers over my wound,
and my flesh magically closes. She motions for the servers to carry me away,
into the kitchens. I want to cry out because I know my time on the Iter is
coming to an end. My legs start to tingle as it wears off, and before I can ask
for more, my world goes dark.
          I
awake in my bedroom, the alarm blaring like a foghorn. I open my eyes,
everything around me blurry from the sleep in my eyes. I sigh as I sit up
slowly and place my feet on the cold floor. My body is numb except for the dull
ache in my chest. I smile at the pain, and start the shower.

Anyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never
met a stranger and take up conversations any where at any time. I
work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often
in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be
dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the
middle of the night.

I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything
is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love

PEARL’S DRAGON
A Novella in the Dragon Lords of Valdier Series
By S.E. Smith (New York Times/USA TODAY Bestselling Author)
Asim Kemark has lived a long, lonely life. It is only his pledge to his former king and to Mandra Reykill that keeps him, his dragon, and his symbiot from going crazy. He has given up on ever finding his true mate and devotes himself to caring for the wide assortment of creatures on Mandra and Ariel’s mountain retreat. The last thing he expects when he visits the palace is to lose control of his dragon and his symbiot when they sense their true mate. Before he knows it, he has kidnapped her!
Pearl St. Claire is enjoying a new adventure – learning to live on an alien planet. As a mature woman in her sixties, she thought she had experienced just about everything life could throw at her – only to discover she really hasn’t experienced anything yet! She is both amused and exasperated when one of the dragon-shifting aliens kidnaps her, believing she is his true mate.
Life is no longer boring or lonely as Asim courts the spirited human woman who has enchanted him, but he isn’t the only one who has noticed Pearl or the unusual animals under his care. When poachers attack, determined to steal the exotic creatures under his protection – including Pearl and a new clutch of alien eggs from Earth – he will do everything he can to protect them. Can one dragon keep the most precious creatures under his care safe, or will he lose the biggest battle of his life?

About the Author:



I have always loved to read and writing is just a natural extension of this for me. Growing up I loved to extend the stories of my favorite books and TV shows just to see where the characters went. I’ve been happily married for over twenty-five years to an awesome man and have two great kids. Now that the kids are out of the house, at least most of the time, I’ve found I have the time to write again. USA Today Bestselling Author.

THE PRINCE, THE PILOT, AND THE PUPPY
“Star Puppy” A Novella in The Star Series
By Susan Grant (New York Times/USA TODAY Bestselling, and RITA Award Winning Author)
Trysh joined the Space Forces with the secret hope that her absentee father might notice her accomplishments and acknowledge her. At the top of her game as a starfighter pilot, the last thing she needs is a way too charming prince to get in her way. Trysh had learned at a young age what happened when a person lost their heart to someone above their social class – it led to heartache.
Prince Rornn feels fortunate he can pursue his passion both in the air and on the ground. He decides being third in line for the throne definitely has its advantages – it allowed him to join the Space Forces as a top-gun starfighter pilot. What he doesn’t expect is to find a woman there who not only competes with him – she completes him!
Everything Rornn tries appears to push Trysh further away – that is until they rescue a tiny, starving yipwag pup from an alien world. It turns out that “Puppy” is as good at sniffing out terrorists as she is at helping her two clueless humans figure out that they need each other as much as they do her.
Can Rornn convince Trysh that he is nothing like her father and that she is just the right woman for him before the terrorists discover their furry little companion?

WIRED FOR LOVE

Narelle Bindu wasn’t immune to the tall, dark stranger working at The Zone. He wanted her – and she wanted him. The only drawback was she didn’t have room in her life for a man, not even one as tempting as Hunter.
When a deadly attack creates the perfect opening for an old enemy, the two lovers must work together to survive. What they never expect is to find an ally willing to help them – even if that help has four legs. Can their four-legged friend keep Hunter and Narelle alive long enough to find out that one night would never be enough?

TIME TRAP
A Novella in the Project Enterprise Series
By Pauline Baird Jones
Hiding in time is not as easy as you’d think…
Madison lives by the rules of a time travel rebel – never tell anyone your real name, not if you want to remain alive. On the track of a traitor, Madison and her parrot partner, Sir Rupert, time travel into a trap. Their only way out sends them back in time and into the arms of a man that ignites a fire inside her.
USAF Master Sergeant Briggs is in trouble – not the kind he’d like to be, but still in trouble. He is bored out of his mind! Ordered to recuperate on a quiet bay away from the Garradian outpost, he’s ready to mutiny and go back to his beloved engines. When his friends send him a gift from Area 51, he figures it will relieve his boredom for an hour or so – until he turns it on and he gets his second present of the day.
Madison would love to get to know Briggs better, but it is just too dangerous. Unfortunately, she might not have much choice. With a Time Service Interdiction Force on their heels, can the three craft a plan that will save a base full of geniuses and technology and discover a happy-ever-after forged through time?

About the Author:



Pauline doesn’t love reality so she writes books. She tends to wander among the genres, rampaging like Godzilla (they were born the same year) through her characters lives, mixing peril and humor into her romance, but she always delivers a happy ending.
