EXCERPT:

I juggle my coffee as I slide the key into my studio door’s lock and push it open. Before I can get the lights on, the smell of fresh lilac hits me.

In the faint sunlight from the small windows, I see a floral arrangement on one of my work tables.

I flip on the lights and smile as I see the beautiful display in its glory.

The lilac sprigs are white and accent lush lipstick pink roses and baby pink peonies. It’s all my favorite flowers in my favorite colors.

I wonder if they’re a gift from Leslie so I cross the room quickly.

As I set my mug and my sketchpad down, I frown when I see the handwritten note by the flowers.

Not Leslie.

I finger the sheet of legal paper with lines of prose written in Sharpie.

Doubt the stars are fire;

Doubt that the sun doth move;

Doubt truth to be a liar;

But never doubt I love.

-Shakespeare

EXCERPT:

“What are your plans for the week?” Mateu asked me.

“Nothing much. Business has been slow, so I’m thinking of giving a class.” Usually I supplemented my income by giving classes in various forms of magic. I taught runes, potion making, and other activities. Sometimes it was struggle to keep things afloat and earn enough to pay for rent, but my store served a purpose in the community and I enjoyed the work. I also liked being in charge of my own work hours. Like many of the other specialty stores in El Born, I opened and closed my store whenever I wanted. And my customers were okay with it. Most of them had my phone number and I left a note on the door for those who didn’t. If I was nearby, I could return to the store and help them with what they needed.

“Do you want me to tell the other gargoyles to talk up your services? Give you a small marketing push?”

I shook my head. “No, that’s okay, I kind of need this week to prepare. I have a speaker visiting the store next week. It’s going to require a lot of coordination and work. I’ve told the local covens but I’m going to have to send out reminders.”

“Whatever you like. If you change your mind, let me know.” Mateu returned to people-watching.

To drum up work and business, I had put together a little event for witches and wizards. I had invited many of the nearby covens to sign up. I had ordered a lot of inventory and had to send out a newsletter letting them know what was in the store. I hoped that would help increase sales.

“In fact…” My voice trailed off. Mateu’s shoulders had stiffened and his body was on alert as he stared out the window. I tensed. “What’s wrong?”

“Come over here,” Mateu said, still focused on whatever he saw outside the window. I walked around the counter and made my way to him. He got to his feet and stared intently at the street. As soon as I was within arm’s length of him, he asked me, “Do you see that woman?”

“Which one?” I searched among the people outside the store. Locals walked past us going about their daily lives while tourists gawked at everything they saw. Across the street was a larger group of tourists. They were focused on the tour guide who held a cane and pointed at various landmarks around them.

“The one in the red T-shirt. She’s part of the group.”

I resumed my search and spotted the woman he was talking about. She stood across the street, her body turned away from us. She gestured at the same buildings the tour guide did and talked to her companion who appeared to be bored from the restless way her head darted around looking at anything but the building in question.

“Yes? What about her?” Before the words had left my mouth, the woman turned slightly towards us and I immediately saw the problem.

A mark over her eye pulsed with a faint blue glow.

“Do you think she knows someone’s cast a spell on her?” Mateu asked me.

EXCERPT:

Hercules clenched his jaw and balled up his fists. “Do you even hear yourself?” He raised his voice into a mocking tone. “’Poseidon doesn’t allow this. Poseidon prefers

that.’ Dear Zeus, Ursula. Have you ever taken a moment to think about what you need? How much longer do you think you will be able to survive under such stifling conditions?”

Suddenly, I was overcome with a sense of shame at myself. I had never taken a step back and thought about what it must seem like to others. There was no way to defend it, either. It was as it seemed. I was my master’s pet. He cared for me, ensured I had my necessities. All he required in return was obedience.

Still, I couldn’t deny Chiron’s earlier claim, either. I had become a stranger to myself in the time I had served Poseidon. There was a time not so long ago when I had harbored fight in my heart. I had to release that independence to save my life, and one way or another Poseidon’s shelter had consumed me until I loved him for it. I hated Hercules for making me question what I had grown so comfortable with. I didn’t want any further complications at the moment.

“It does not matter.” I lifted a chin. “I’m a servant. I have no say in it.”

“You do as long as you are here.” He nodded toward the food in the center of the table. “Eat, or I will starve as well.”

Starlight Christmas
Yumoyori Wilson
(Starlight Gods, #3)
Publication date: December 22nd 2017
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

Christmas.

A time for giving and receiving. A time for celebration. A holiday I’ve only read about in a storybook – page after page of seeing a little girl celebrating the joys of Christmas.

I had envied that girl, reading her tale on the cold, library floor while she was surrounded by so much warmth. So many cycles trapped in the facility by my Owner, my only presents the old, tattered books that surrounded me, my imagination my only salvation.

So many cycles, I’d spent wishing to be like the girl in the fairy tale, wishing I was surrounded by my loved ones, opening presents and enjoying their company.

My wish had finally come true. This cycle would be different. Rescued by my star knights, I vowed to enjoy every minute of this season with them by my side.

This Christmas, I would enjoy being free.

This Christmas, I would enjoy being free.

Starlight Christmas is apart of the Holiday Series. It will be FULL-LENGTH novel and does not take place during the same timeline as the main series. It’s recommended to read DARK WISH- BOOK ONE of the Starlight Gods Series to understand/enjoy this novel.

Recommended for 18+ audience, containing mature sexual content and strong language.

EXCERPT:

Marcus turned his attention back to me – a satisfied grin formed on his smooth lips. I finally realized what he just did.

“You’re evil.”

“I’m smart.”

“How long until they realize you totally lied?”

“If I’m lucky thirty minutes, but knowing how sharp Elias is, he’ll find Kai in twenty.”

“You do realize you’ll have three angry shifters after you.”

“I’m prepared for that.” He reassured me. I was about to stand up when one arm hooked around me and his other arm hooked underneath my knees, lifting me up with ease.

I quickly hooked my hands around his neck as I gave him a confused look.

“What are you doing?”

“I’m kidnapping the princess.”

“I don’t think you’re supposed to reveal your plans.”

“There’s no one here to stop me.”

“How about if I don’t want to be kidnapped?”

He buried his face against my shoulder – kissing my flesh. I moaned, biting my lip. He rose to kiss me on my lips before pulling away.

“Trust me, my Firefly. You shall enjoy me kidnapping you. Now, we must scurry away to my evil lair, aka my bedroom.”

EXCERPT:

Was Alexander dreaming? Was Olivia Moore kissing him? He refused to wake up, ever! As he was about to deepen the kiss Olivia moved away with an expression that told him she had acted on impulse and regretted it.

“The problem with you seems that you’re too modest. You should stop hiding the real you and transfer that confidence,” she nodded towards the podium, “into your personal, romantic life.” She said it in a breathy way as if she was trying to compose herself and was determined to sound professional. But she could not hide the flush of pleasure she had obviously shared during the too-short few seconds of their kiss.

He was growing wings of hope. Maybe she felt more for him than merely as a Samaritan for a doofus client.

“The food’s good, you want to stay awhile?” Perhaps he could muster up some courage to dance with her. She would do it in the name of her ‘responsibility’ to help him.

She nodded. A few minutes later she said, “You obviously have quite a lot of public speaking experience and a huge following.” Her eyes sparkled with respect. “I had no idea you’ve traveled so extensively. I’m beginning to wonder if you really need my help, and if you really are that shy in your personal life.”

Suddenly all he wanted was to tell her the truth about everything. This was his perfect opportunity. About why he was in town, why he had wanted her ‘help’ and about the non-existent Jessica.

The woman I want to woo is you! All I want is you, Olivia, just the way you are. Perfect.

But his throat closed up and he shook inside. Misunderstanding his reaction, the sensitive Olivia touched his hand again and said, “Don’t worry, I’m here. You’ll do just fine tomorrow. Just take some of the energy and drive you had up there,” Olivia pointed to the podium, “and you’ll sweep Jessica off her feet.”

Was that fleeting jealousy he saw within her expressive eyes, or was it his wishful thinking?

As they enjoyed the delicious menu, the pleasure of having her in his arms as they danced was marred by his cowardice. He was not only frustrated with himself but the heat and the rightness of being together fanned his hunger for her and impatience with himself. He wanted to kiss Olivia and hold her so tightly instead of merely dancing with her. He wanted to explore every curve and crevice of her gorgeous body, and quench the desire within him.

What would it take to grow a backbone? Why could he face an army of opposition and controversy in his business, and clam up in front of the soft, generous Olivia?

And what if he was misreading her emotions? Be positive, damn it.

What if by some miracle his purging admission was met by her reciprocating his feelings? What if she also felt their physical attraction and emotional synchronicity? All his brothers had found their own true love; what if Olivia was his one and only?

But he was not the purging type. Despite having meant every word about being fortunate in his family life, he now felt even more trapped within his lie. Olivia was a genuine person who deserved the truth.

What could he do now and not risk losing Olivia again?

(Paranormal INC Series, #2)
Publication date: December 29th 2017
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

New Year’s always ended with a bang, when I was partnered up with my best friend, Cece Alexandra Rose. She wasn’t just the demon queen – she was the party queen.

I expected no different this year – my suitcase packed with flashy, skin-tight dresses and Louboutin heels that I could dance all night in. My mission was to get utterly wasted before the clock struck midnight on the New Year, 5033.

Instead, I’m on an exclusive cruise for millionaires with my men in tow, assigned to a high-profile criminal investigation.

I, Scarlet Sinclair, was now undercover as Irina Locksworth, rocking a brunette wig and running for my life in a hot pair of not-so-running-friendly Louboutin’s, while praying our secret weapon didn’t fall out of my bra as we tracked down a drug lord, each tick of the clock pushing us closer to the New Year…and our deadline.

Time for Team Seven of Paranormal INC to end this year with a bang.

I just prayed to the gods it wasn’t also the end of us.

Visionary New Years is apart of the Holiday Series and does not take place during the same timeline as the main series. It’s recommended to read VISIONARY INVESTIGATOR- Book One in the Paranormal INC Series to understand/enjoy this novel.

Recommended for 18+ audience, containing mature sexual content, violence and strong language.

EXCERPT:

“Hey, what you-” I began lifting my head to question his sudden movement when his lips met mine. I smiled, closing my eyes; returning the kiss.

We kissed for what seemed like minutes when he pulled away; both of us out of breath.

“Do I have to distract you before you stay still?” He asked.

“I like distractions. Especially ones that require good kisses,” I replied. I pulled out of his embrace; changing position on the couch to face him. He lifted an eyebrow; confused as to what I was planning.

“Now I can kiss you and you can work on my back.” I grinned.

“Really?”

“It’s multitasking,” I emphasized.

“Come here.” He whispered.

Being the drummer for the hottest new rock band should’ve been a dream come true. Sold out shows, women, more money than I deserved…

But I didn’t want any of it.

The fame sucked, the money was a burden and I’d given away my only chance at ever having her—my best friend’s sister.

I wasn’t supposed to touch her. My best friend made me swear I wouldn’t. Then he was deployed, and he told me to look out for her. Except being around her while still keeping my distance was slowly killing me. Touring with the band should’ve been the perfect escape… Until I fucked up.

I fucked up so bad, she was half-conscious in my arms, fighting for her life.

EXCERPT:

I backed her against the wall and took her face in my hands. “I’m not leaving you alone.”

Her breath hitched, and her hands wrapped around my wrists, but she didn’t say anything.

I gripped her harder. “You’re not alone, you hear me? You will never be alone. I’m always going to be here for you. Always.”

Her grief, her tears, the tension in her muscles—it all stilled.

Then she stood on tiptoe and her lips landed on mine.

First shock, then eight years of blind fucking need surged, and I let loose. Growling with repressed desire and want, so much fucking want, I roared as I slammed my body against hers and shoved my tongue into her mouth.

Sweet fucking Jesus.

My hands tangling in her hair, my tongue dominating, I didn’t kiss her. I fucking took.

I took her kiss.

I took her grief.

And I took her fucking trust.

For one unbelievable moment, I had everything I’d ever wanted.

Everything.

My cock surged, my hips ground into hers, and I kissed her how I’d always wanted to. Then reality hit and I destroyed everything.

I ripped my undeserving mouth from hers and stepped back. Shattering her illusion of who I was, I rubbed the back of my hand over my mouth and prayed like fuck I didn’t break her worse. “I’m sorry.”
