EXCERPT…

Here is your exclusive peek into Crave the Darkness. To set things up for you…the heroine Darian, is not happy with her new assignment. She has to be bodyguard to another Shaede who she really really doesn't like. As soon as Anya and Darian met, they locked horns and their distain for each other has been brewing ever since. Here's how it goes...

“You might as well turn yourself around and go back to where you came from,” Anya said with a sneer. “I don’t have any intention of allowing you to be my shadow.”“From what I hear,” I said, closing my door behind me, “neither of us has a choice.”We made quite a pair, Anya and me. Standing in Xander’s hallway, the wall on one side, the banister on the other, we looked like a couple of gunfighters about to draw. And my trigger finger itched. I couldn’t even give her a proper beating due to her condition. From what Xander said, everyone would be treating her like she was made of glass for the next year. And I wouldn’t be the exception, either. Oh, no. I was going to have to keep her safe.I leaned against the banister, one foot slung casually across the other. I crossed my arms in front of my chest and looked her over, silently daring her to open her mouth and deny Xander’s orders. Tears glistened in her eyes, and I straightened. Anya’s gaze narrowed, and she swallowed hard before clenching her teeth. With balled fists and a quivering jaw, she spun on a heel and headed down the hallway and right back down the stairs without a single smart- ss remark. I had to put in some serious effort to keep my own jaw from falling slack. Whaddaya know, even stone-old Anya wasn’t insusceptible to hormones.“Making friends wherever you go,” Raif said, coming up behind me. “You’d better find out who’s threatening her and take care of it—fast. Otherwise, you might not survive each other’s company.”


Sounds good, yes? All you need to do to enter the ARC giveaway is to leave a comment and I’ll get you in the draw. Easy peasy. You have until Tuesday, Jan 15th (11:59 EST) to comment. Best of luck my lovelies!!

  2. I really like Tyler. I felt so bad for him and kind of mad at Darian. I understand what she did but I didn't like it. AT ALL. I am not too fond of Xander.

    2. Isn't it too funny how we all like different characters. I don't care much for Tyler but love Xander. LOL! I don't know why but there's just something about his arrogance that appeals to me for some reason. too funny! My favourite is Raif though. In this new book, there's a whole lot more introduced as a team that protects Anya. I'm only half way through and I love it. Darian is very remorseful about what she did to Ty.

  12. I love this series! What initially drew me in was the cover (of Shaedes of Gray), but then of course I was drawn in by the unique world, the action and characters. Thanks for the giveaway!

  18. Hi there! I just wanted to inquire if you have any difficulties with hackers?

    My personal past blog site (wordpress) appeared to be broken into and that
    i ended up being burning off many months connected with hard work because of absolutely no
    copy. Are you experiencing any solutions to quit cyberpunks?
