When the Past and Present Collide
I’ve known my husband since we were six years old and our families went camping together. He taught me how to play Red Rover so he could hold my hand and then sent me a nice letter on school paper saying he loved me. We saw each other through the years but lost touch a little bit. Then one night we ran into each other right after college at a bar in town. Of course, he’d turned into a six-foot-five Italian with a motorcycle and a leather jacket…
So in my newest release, HUNTED, I had an idea of how the hero and heroine would view each other, considering they’d known each other for more than a century. In fact, they mated a century ago in a wild, passionate night. Then Conn (a vampire) had to leave Moira (a witch) to train for her calling…and he gave her 100 years. Hunted begins when Conn decides that time is up.
There’s something about being with someone who knew you way back when. Though Conn has no clue how powerful Moira has become, just as she has no idea how determined he can be. Their coming back together is both explosive and dangerous—and somehow sweet since they knew each other so long ago. And they share commitment to family and strong loyalty to their people.
Of course…their families might be going to war. But you can’t have any great romance without some slight wrinkle.
HUNTED was chosen as Grave Tells May Book of the Month. Here’s a quick excerpt:
The warrior in Conn roared to life, overtaking any rational thought. He shot his arm up to grab her wrist and force the blade from his throat. “Let go of the knife, Moira.” Soft skin covered toned muscle under his hand. He could tighten his hold and make her drop the weapon, but that’s not how this was going down.
“No.” She took advantage of his movement and dug her heel into his thigh, clapping his ear with her free hand.
Pain exploded in his skull. His temper howled. Clutching his fingers into her hair, he jerked her head back. The white column of her throat stretched. She yelped in protest. He lowered his head, his fangs elongating completely. His lips enclosed her skin.
Her entire body went rigid. The knife clattered to the floor.
He drank. Honey and spice exploded across his taste buds followed by a punch of raw power. His mind swirled. Arousal, lust, fire whipped through him until the need to get inside her pushed all other thoughts away. Quick swipes of his tongue sealed the wound and then his mouth was on hers, delving deep.
She moaned low in her throat, pulling him toward her. He released her arm, encircling her waist and tugging her forward. Better. Now he wanted her naked. Heat cascaded from the woman. His tongue tangled with hers, the little whimpers gasping from her boiling his lust even higher.
The boom of a gun being fired jerked him away.
The next book, CONSUMED, will be released on July 5th. Have a wonderful summer!
