EXCERPT:
I can’t help but think about how after all of the years of waiting for the woman of my dreams—the one woman, who has claimed me, kept me sane and makes me feel…whole. These many years of only dreams, my mind’s way of showing me my one soul mate and now I have finally found her. Actually being able to hold her, have her, taste her…I, at this moment feel as if this amazing reality, so short lived, is being swept away from me and I’m not liking it one single bit. I want more than just the brief and amazing first time we had. I want to give her romance, show her what she means to me with actions as well as words.
We’ve not been alone or able to talk, get to know one another as couples should since we’ve consummated our…bond. Oh, what a night it was! It’s been one thing after another since that night at the club, that amazing meeting of souls that currently feels so long ago, yet it’s not been long at all.
We’re so fucking incredible together, in every way a couple should be. Even more than I thought possible when I thought of her as real through the years. Our bodies are so attuned to one another. It’s as if they call out and sing a song only our physical forms can hear. I know…I know. It sounds strange, corny even but it’s the only way I can think of to express the feelings and perfection that is us.
She’s tough, sexy as hell, loyal, loving and just absolute perfection in my eyes. I’d swear she was made just for me and only me! My mate, the filler that soothes the empty places within me. My woman, a woman I plan to enjoy, in every way possible. For the rest of my life.
I won’t tell her all of this yet. Not just yet.
I don’t want to take any chances of frightening her away or jumping the gun. Even though we’ve been on the same page from the first moment we touched with pretty much everything. I’d rather proceed naturally. Let it flow out, instead of over thinking it as I currently am, shit!

Stop right now Pete!

MEET THE AUTHORS!


***MEET JENNIFER***

Jennifer Theriot hails from the Great State of Texas. She is a career woman, working as CFO of a Texas based real estate investment firm. Working in her capacity as CFO, she felt something was missing and discovered her passion for writing novels–mostly at night and on weekends.

Jennifer took a chance that there could be an interest in romance with middle aged couples who are finding themselves at a crossroads and wrote her debut novel Out of the Box Awakening, which centers on the hope of finding happiness and passion through unexpected heartache. It emphasizes the need for family and friends as Jennifer has learned in her own life. The book has been described as “Mature Sexy” by one reviewer.

***MEET DIANE RINELLA***

 
Enjoying San Francisco as a backdrop, the ghosts in Diane’s 150-year old Victorian home augment the chorus in her head. With insomnia as their catalyst, these voices have become multifarious characters that haunt her well into the sun’s crowning hours, refusing to let go until they have manipulated her into succumbing to their whims. Her experiences as an actress, business owner, artisan cake designer, software project manager, Internet radio disc jockey, vintage rock n’ roll journalist/fan girl, and lover of dark and quirky personalities influence her idiosyncratic writing.

***MEET P.J.***


I was born in a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri named Bridgeton. During my time in Missouri, I explored the Ozarks, swam in the Mississippi River, and played kickball and endless games of hide and seek with the neighborhood kids. Spending summers in Kentucky with my grandmother, Ruth, are the fondest childhood memories for me.

At the age of thirteen, my family moved to Wisconsin to learn to farm. Yes, learn to farm! That was interesting. Taking city kids and throwing them on a farm with twenty-eight cows purchased from the humane society because they had been abused was interesting. I learned to milk cows, the ins and outs of breeding and feeding schedules, the never ending haying in the summer, and trying to stay warm in the winter. Our first winter in Wisconsin we had thirty-six inches of snow in one storm and were snowed in our house for three days! Needless to say, I wasn’t loving Wisconsin.


I am now married with four children and three grandchildren. I have learned to love Wisconsin, though I still hate snow. Wisconsin and the United States are beautiful, and my husband and I travel around by motorcycle seeing new sites and meeting new people. It never ceases to amaze me how many people are interested in where we are going and what we have seen along the way. At every gas station, restaurant, and hotel, we have people come up to us and ask us about what we are doing as well as offer advice on which roads in the area are better than others.

IT ISN’T ALWAYS BAD WHEN THINGS GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT!!! Enjoy this anthology of seven, hot, exciting stories by many of the same authors who brought you STRANDED WITH A BILLIONAIRE, AND HOT SOLDIER!


Cursed as a teenager, Eden has lived her life in pain and fear, a target for all paranormal creatures, including Smith, a vampire with a bad attitude. But Smith doesn’t want to cause her pain, he just wants her. Even though she’s everything he is supposed to despise, he craves her body even more than he craves her blood. Forced to work together to break Eden’s curse and defeat one of Smith’s oldest enemies, they might just fall in love, if they don’t kill each other first! HOT, DAMNED AND CURSED by Seraphina Donavan.


Ettie Stewart is such a nice, good girl, that she doesn’t even balk when her parents ship her off to a fat camp. But what if being everyone’s good little girl can have unexpected benefits in the form of the fat camp’s hot chef, Henry? Find out in WICKED GIRL by Kate Baum. 


Isolated her whole life, talking only to the animals only she can communicate, Melanie’s life changes dramatically when she meets Tim. Little does she know that Tim has secrets of his own. He understands her pain, because as a Reaper, he often delivers pain to others. But Melanie is different, and she makes him long for things that a Reaper shouldn’t… like love. REAP WHAT YOU SOW by AR Von. 


Secret desires haunt Death Angel, Bane. Obsessed with Willa Mae, the Angel of Willpower for a millennia, she’s his perfect counterpart. Willa harbors her own secret desires for Bane, but while he sees balance in their differences, she sees only despair and rejects him, damaging his ego and the fragile bond between them. But what will happen when an old foe reveals Willa’s secret? DEATH ANGEL by Charisma Knight. 


To save the life of an enslaved demon a druid will do anything to free him. A deadly rite will throw them together, but it’s their love they must rely on in the hunt for a future together. THE HUNTED byShannan Albright. 


From two different worlds Eloise Cummings and Baron MacArthur couldn’t be more different. She’s a druid and he’s a very ordinary, if successful, businessman. Still he’s drawn to her, after a chance encounter a year earlier and when fortune throws them together again, he feels compelled to pursue her. But Eloise can’t help but wonder what will happen when Baron learns the truth? Can this very ordinary man handle her very extraordinary nature, or will he walk away from her forever? HIS DRUID LOVER by Trish F. Leger 


Three supernaturals walk into a bar, and no, it’s not a joke. They’re on the hunt for a killer, one who’s targeting their kind. They’ve come to find Hennessee, a known hunter, and in the process they meet his student, the sweet and lovely Susie. All of them are charmed by her, but one of them has fallen hard for her. Love is always dangerous, but even more so when you’re hunting a vicious succubus. TAKEN by Leanore Elliott
