A Hunter Rises is LIVE!

Have you heard the word? A Hunter Rises (Book 2 in the Alliance of Power Duology) is LIVE on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited! Which means, this series is complete!

I can’t wait for you to see where this adventure takes Jules, Seeley, Henry and the rest of the mix-matched crew!

Look at these teasers to get you pumped …

Not enough yet? How about this teaser…

The doors to the room flew open, and a domineering man snarled as he entered. “Kellan! Lucian! So help me you had better be right and have gotten to her after you let him get away.”

I stared, wide-eyed, barely breathing as the tall man entered the room. His dark hair was combed and gelled to the side, slicked back in a perfect fashion. He wore a gray button-up shirt that had the top few buttons undone, with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows. His black slacks hung fitted around his waist and the pants followed his movements perfectly, like they were made just for him. The veins in his forearms and exposed neck were visible as he yelled in anger at Kellan, and the man next to me, who I assumed to be Lucian.

This man was terrifying, but incredibly alluring at the same time. I knew he was dangerous, I sensed it, but his appearance made him come off like he was a handsome superstar, instead of a threat. I was confident he was a vampire. I was also confident he probably didn’t have a hard time catching his prey looking the way he did.

The man next to me finally stopped muttering incoherently and stepped back, giddy with excitement as he turned to face the man who had just entered the room.

“My King, she’s here.” His voice held a reverent tone.

The man’s attention snapped to me, and the left corner of his mouth turned up. He stalked toward me slowly and bowed his head, searching my eyes, or Kellan’s because I wasn’t sure if I was actually here with him.

His finger slipped under this body’s chin and a cold sensation of fear tingled down my neck.

“Jules Van Helsing. We’re about to have so much fun together.” I shivered as he leaned in closer to my ear. “Come to me now, or Seeley Ronan dies.”

“No,” I gasped, feeling like I was being pulled away suddenly. I had to get away. I had to wake up. This was a nightmare, a terrible nightmare.

“We’re losing her, Mathias,” Lucian said.

My eyes snapped quickly back to the man before me and widened in shock. I was staring at Mathias, and he knew who I was. I screamed.

Meet the Authors: Souls and Shadows

Meet the Authors: Souls and Shadows

I’m sure you’ve seen me talking about Souls and Shadows, now that it’s officially available for pre-order on Apple, Barnes & Noble and Kobo (Amazon links are coming soon). It’s the limited edition, paranormal romance and urban fantasy box set that I’m a part of that is aiming for making the USA Today Bestsellers List!

I’m so excited about this set, I can’t even properly put into words how I feel — which I should be able to as an author, you know 🙂

My book is called, The Time Traveler’s Awakening. The Time Traveler’s Awakening has it all – sexy, rogue vampires who have taken up pirating, maliciously evil shifters and a time traveling heroine. When Ember Brighton learns that she’s much more than a medical student, she embarks on a dangerous journey to save time from those who wish to control it. With the help of the sexy vampire, Rane Andersson, she’ll either have the chance she needs to succeed, or realize she has much more to learn in this new magical world. If you like your romances packed with mystery, action and surprise, you won’t want to miss the prequel to the Magic Bound Saga, The Time Traveler’s Awakening!

I wanted to share with you, not only some details on MY book, but also a little bit about some of the authors in the set! Check out this great blog tour link that introduces you to some of my fellow authors AND to the books they have that will be releasing as a part of Souls and Shadows!

Happy Reading: http://celebratewithabook.com/2019/02/09/souls-shadows/?fbclid=IwAR2WfBqS_QTzDuOHEUjlp_GFtD02aaMS3l_h8USzh6el749dH2i7dg-Qk4M

“Who are you and why are you following me?” I repeated.

He raised one eyebrow smugly and began stalking around me, taking me in.

I huffed at his demeanor and wandering eyes.

“Excuse me?” I said, forcefully, knowing full well I needed to sound more disgusted that I felt. At the moment, his eyes made me more nervous than uncomfortable. “Do you mind?”

He came around front again, facing me and folded his arms across his chest. His white shirt was slightly damp on his chest, no doubt thanks to the stifling air. The lone breeze from earlier had been hot and dense and did nothing for the heat. He stood there, still watching me not saying a thing. His silence was bordering on the edge of uncomfortable, but I wouldn’t show him anything that made him think I was yielding to him in any way. If that’s what he was looking for, he had another thing coming.

Instead, I stood more proudly, hands on my hips and arched my own brow waiting in response.

“Someone seems to think you may cause some trouble,” he said in a voice that would have brought me to my knees if I hadn’t been trying so hard to be determined and strong in his presence. 𝘋𝘢𝘮𝘯 𝘪𝘵, 𝘴𝘯𝘢𝘱 𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘰𝘧 𝘪𝘵.

“What are you?” I asked, standing my ground.

He smiled slightly. “None of your concern. But I’m not here to harm you,” he said.

I snorted at the remark. He was certainly eyeing me up like a target. “Then what do you want?” I asked.

“I happened to stumble into this little mess and couldn’t help but watch. You just kicked three wolves’ asses on their own land. I’d call that disrupting the peace,” he said, tilting his head to the side and studying me.

“I’d call it a typical Monday,” I retorted, increasingly frustrated with his indignant behavior towards me when I didn’t know who he was.

His lips tugged into a more genuine smile, but only momentarily. “I’ll see you around then.”

And with that he was gone.

Now onto the Work in Progress Announcement: I’m so excited about this book. I haven’t been this excited about writing in a while, so I can’t wait to get more done and share some additional details with you all! For now, what I can tell you is that this book will focus on our main character, Jules Parker. Jules is a 24-year-old in her final year of a Master’s Program. She has an internship at Falcone Industries, the number one pharmaceutical company in the U.S. She hopes to become a Research Scientist, with a focus in Genetic Research.  It’s a paranormal romance, so you know things aren’t going to go smoothly for Jules for very long. She’ll get going on quite an adventure and we will get to meet some of her good friends, and some sexy new additions to her life along the way! This book does not have a title right now, but I’ll be sure to update you as soon as things get further along! The book will focus on vampires and vampire hunters! I can’t WAIT to share more!! Any thoughts so far???

That’s about all from me for now! Have a great rest of your week, and hopefully I’ll chat with some of you during Laura Lee’s Release Party on Facebook this Friday!
