Book Talk Wednesdays - All Paranormals This Week!

Welcome, L.J. Kentowski, Sky Purington, and Yazmin Subha! I'm thrilled to have you visiting with me today! In Laura's "Guardian of Fate," Cassandra battles good and evil to save souls, Sky's trilogy, "Calum's Curse," weaves tales of magic and an ancient curse, and Yazmin's "Wildfire" tells of a hero seeking to regain his humanity. I won't waste time with chatter. As usual, links are close by, and authors are in alphabetical order. Read on! I'm sure you'll find something you like :-)


Fear of death is all too common. Visions of it chill the bones and skip heartbeats. Seeing it coming and knowing only you can rescue the soul of the victim from the fiery bowels of hell…that’s downright life-altering. 

Cassandra Cosgrove’s life was altered at the age of sixteen when she found out that it was her responsibility to save the lives, and ultimately the souls, of innocent victims targeted by Hell’s demons. As impossible as it seemed at first, she was able to live a fairly normal life, while secretly fulfilling her obligation as a Guardian of Fate. 

But years later Fate has its own plan when her visions begin drastically changing at the same time two mysterious men appear in her life. Cassandra suddenly finds herself caught in a battle between good and evil, with her own soul on the line. When it seems everyone in her life has a secret they’ve been hiding from her, who can she trust to be the Guardian of her Fate?

Braden has searched all his life for the one who will help him regain his humanity and give him absolute power. One bite and he knew Millie was the one he had been searching for. Millie, a fiery red head is the last one in the line of high born witches who would rather die than give herself to this vampire. After all he killed her mother for her blood as well, didn’t he?  But in a twist of fate Millie learns too late what the truth is. But will death be the only thing that unites them?
Excerpt:
She was slight, her curves meshing against him as though they belonged next to him. She continued to wriggle her lower half trying to get out of his arms. Only the friction awoke the fierce passion residing underneath his skin, and his cock hardened.
"Be still my wild fire, it will be easier." Braden spoke in a low tone directly into her ear. He caught the smell of her hair and could not resist burying his face in the mass of red curls. He groaned with need. Need for blood and need for her. 
His voice soothed her anxiety and he felt her stop trying to get out of his arms. Her heart beat slowed down, eventually matching his own. Synchronized again, Braden kissed the back of her head. Enjoying the feel of her silky hair in his face, he bathed in her curls. Moving the curls away from her neck, he bent down, opened his mouth, and sucked the skin on her neck. She tasted of nectar, his very own personal brand.  His head screamed to bite, to taste that rich blood he had sipped last night in the car wash. But the man in him wanted her to be willing, to take her as she reached the height of orgasm as she had nearly done so in the car wash. This time he would be inside her, not just pleasuring her with his hands.
His mind came back to the present as he felt little shakes coming from her, and he realized she was crying.
Her little voice wobbled and she gave a sob, "don't hurt me, please."

Hello, Ladies! Welcome to "Musings of an Independent Artist!" It's a pleasure having you visit :-)Please tell me a bit about your writing process in comments.

L.J. Kentowski said...

Hi Dariel! Thanks so much for having me on today, and with such great company!

My writing process isn't really a process, it's more of a get it while you can situation :) With a full time job, and a family, I really don't get the chance to sit down with my own thoughts until everyone shuts down for the night. Once that happens, I usually stick my headphones in and just let the ideas flow. Luckily, it's worked this way so far :)

I really admire that! It's so hard to juggle everything. I published my first book immediately after my first divorce! First I'd had time to focus on it. Keep up the good work. I'm late responding because internet's been down all day. We're close to the Gulf storms & tornadoes :-( Love the beaches, but we pay for them when storms approach.

L.J. Kentowski said...

I've been keeping track of that on the news. Looks horrible! Stay safe!

Dariel Raye said...

Thanks, Laura! It's NO I'm worried about. It turned more towards them, so we've just been getting heavy rain and wind. Internet's so sensitive, doesn't take much for satellites to be affected.

Thanks so much for featuring me, Dariel! Love your sites. :-)
