 Excerpt

 

Cullen hadn’t expected Mia Carter to be so . . . amazing. He’d never seen a woman fight with such passion or with movements so beautiful that he’d found himself watching her instead of finishing off the Colombian.

 

For the first time in Cullen’s life, he couldn’t find words. He could only stare at the beautiful woman with one thought—Valkyrie.

 

She was the epitome of what he imagined the winged creatures of Norse mythology would look like. All she needed was armor and a sword to complete his vision.

 

Now, as he sat in the cockpit of the British WWII Bristol Buckingham C. MK 1 plane, also known as the Bristol Type 163 Buckingham, he couldn’t keep his eyes off her.

 

Beautiful didn’t begin to describe this incredible woman. Every time her steely black gaze fringed with impossibly thick lashes turned his way, he became entranced. Her eyes were large and slightly tilted up at the corners.

 

He forgot to breathe as he took in her unblemished, sun-kissed face. With high cheekbones and wide, full lips, he was smitten.

 

Wisps of inky black hair escaped from her ponytail to fall along the narrow column of her neck. An olive tee skimmed her torso to show mouthwatering curves, and black denim showcased her lithe legs to perfection.

 

“It was Orrin who approached me,” she said.

 

That didn’t surprise him. His father had always had a gift for finding talent and using it to his advantage. “When?”

 

“A few years ago.”

 

It made Cullen wonder what else his father had been up to. While he and his brothers were off building their lives, Orrin Loughman had been setting up a team of Black Ops members to do some of the dirtiest jobs.

 

One of the missions, put together by the DOD, had sent Orrin and his team to Russia to steal a bioweapon.

 

Except something had gone terribly wrong. Someone betrayed Orrin Loughman. In the process, he’d been kidnapped, and his team was executed.

 

The last person to see his father was the woman sitting next to Cullen.

 

The years he’d spent as a Marine Force Recon captain had taught him many things. He knew how to fight his way out of various situations using his hands, body, and mind. He knew how to spot lairs and traitors. He also had dozens of rescues to his name.

 

He was damn good at his job. But he had to be more than good now. His father’s very life depended on it.

 

“How did you find me?” Mia asked.

 

“I went to the Air Force Base. When you weren’t there, I went to General Davis’s office. It seems they keep a record of every flight you make.”

 

Her lips compressed. “That they do.”

 

“To my benefit. If I hadn’t arrived, you would either be dead or in Camilo’s care. Neither of which sounds appealing.”

 

“I already thanked you.”

 

“Yes, ma’am. You sure did.” He linked his fingers over his stomach. There was something about Mia Carter he found compelling, and it had nothing to do with her beauty. She was very much like him, he suddenly realized.

 

Wary of the world with a look of cynicism she didn’t bother to hide.

 

“Tell me how a pilot with your skills is able to have a hangar on a base, work for the military as a contractor, and still be able to take jobs with criminals. Because let’s be honest . . .  Camilo was a criminal.”

 

“It won’t matter what I give you as an explanation. You’ve already formed an opinion,” she replied coolly.

 

In fact, he had formed an opinion. He suspected that she liked danger. She also loved to fly. Combine the two, and she was in heaven.

 

“You were telling me about how you and my father began working together,” he said, getting them back on topic.

 

She cut him a look with her black eyes. “What you really want to know is if I betrayed him. As I told Callie—and everyone listening on the phone that day—it wasn’t me.”

 

“I do remember that call. Though I’ve learned that people say a lot of things that aren’t the truth.”

 

“You want the truth?” she asked, turning her head to him. “I’ll tell you the truth. I hated taking orders, so I left the Air Force as soon as I could. But I wasn’t ready to give up flying. It’s my life.”

 

That much he could tell. It was in her blood.

Dark Kings #1

July 31, 2012

Dark Craving

Fueled by ancient magic—and enflamed by human desire—the Dragon King known as Hal can transform himself at will into one of the legendary winged creatures he is sworn to protect. But one thing he can never do is fall in love…with a mortal woman.

Searching for her brother in Scotland—and succumbing to the freezing cold—Cassie Hunter awakens to find herself in the arms of a magnificent Highland warrior. Across his chest is the tattoo of a fiery dragon. And in his heart is a burning passion that, once unleashed, will consume them both…body and soul.

This is a story of destiny and desire, magic and mystery, warriors and lovers.

These are the forbidden cravings of the Dark Kings.

Dark Craving

Read the Excerpt

Dreagan Distillery

 

Hal shut and locked the doors to the distillery for the day before he turned and looked out over the land. Snow blanketed everything and the light the crescent moon cast upon the ground made it look almost as if it were glowing.

The need to lose himself in the land in the forest sometimes was overwhelming, as it was this night. Other times he could ignore the call, but not tonight.

Hal didn’t bother to tell the others where he was going. He simply walked down the steps and into the night. The weather didn’t faze him.

His boots crunched in the thick snow, but he never noticed. His gaze was trained on the forest ahead. Every one of them answered to something, and for Hal it was the forest.

Always had been.

Always would be.

Once he was in the trees, he took a deep breath and lifted his face to the sky. Snow landed on his lashes and rain dripping from the limbs above pelted his face.

It was glorious.

Hal smiled and spread his arms wide. He touched his chest, through his jacket and sweater, to the tattoo beneath.

A person could get lost in the glens of the Highlands, and there were thousands of glens. Which made it a perfect place for Hal and the others like him to stay hidden.

It had been a long time since he’d allowed his other self to show, his dragon self. And for some reason, this night he desperately yearned to spread his wings and fly.

To feel the wind around him as he soared through the sky.

He still remembered flying low over the trees, the leaves brushing against his underside as the sun beat on him. He hadn’t needed to hide then. For once upon a time, he had been able to call to his brethren and listened to their roars fill the forest.

So very long ago he had lived a completely different life. Back before the humans betrayed them, before a war that changed everything.

A sound off to Hal’s right had him turning his head in that direction. He dropped his arms as his eyes fastened on a large, fast-moving animal loping through the trees.

Hal let his coat drop from his arms as he sprinted toward the animal. As he neared, he realized it was a dog—a very large dog. And the only person near Dreagan land who had such a dog was Dan Hunter.

With more frustration than Hal wanted to concede, he came to a halt. He had been able to take flight, but now he had to chase a dog. For several moments he watched the Great Dane running, his tongue lolling out the side of his mouth.

There had been a few times in Hal’s life where he’d felt that free, been that free. Those times were the barest of memories now.

When a person was as old as Hal, time blurred.

It was so easy to get lost in his memories, of what had once been, and what he had once been. But to allow himself to get absorbed in such recollections was not wise.

He pulled himself back from the brink and gave a loud, short whistle, which pulled Duke up short. The Great Dane turned his head to Hal and issued a deep, booming bark in greeting.

“Come here, lad,” Hal called.

Immediately, the dog ran to him, his tail wagging.

Hal rubbed the dog’s massive head. “It’s no’ like Dan to allow you to run like this. Nor is it like you to run off. What’s the problem, lad?”

Duke jerked against the hold Hal had on his collar. Hal narrowed his eyes. He’d learned very early in life to listen carefully when animals tried to speak. They might not be speaking your language, but they were talking. It was obvious Duke was trying to tell him something.

“Show me,” Hal said, and released the collar.

Duke took off at a run and Hal was quick to follow. Dreagan land extended far as the eye could see, and Dan’s cottage was the closest anyone lived to Dreagan.

It was because Dan rarely rented the property and didn’t cause any problems that Hal and the others hadn’t made a point of getting rid of him.

Hal easily kept pace with the Great Dane as they traversed over the land. When they crested the last hill that overlooked Dan’s cottage, Duke stopped and whined.

Dan’s Corsa could be seen by the light of the moon and despite the heavy snowfall. Thankfully, the rain had tapered off, but the snow made it difficult to see where Dan was.

Duke butted Hal’s hand with his head before he took off down the slope to the cottage. Hal had memorized the lay of the land centuries ago and knew where the boulders lay hidden in the snow.

He leapt down the slope and landed in thick snow. Duke caught up with him, and they both ran the rest of the way down the side of the mountain.

Hal rushed to the front door, but found it locked and all the lights out. When Hal turned to look for Duke, he found the Great Dane standing beside the car.

That’s when Hal noticed there was someone inside. In three strides he was beside the car. He tapped on the window, but the figure didn’t move.

A visit with Donna Grant and giveaway *part of “cancer” week*

Today our guest is author Donna Grant, I’m so thrilled that Donna agreed to be one of our guests for this special ‘week’. Please join us in welcoming Donna to My Book Addiction.

ForeverMine_300x190

I love that Wendy and April have dedicated this week on their blog to cancer. I hate that it seems the disease touches nearly everyone in some way.

My father-in-law had prostrate cancer. He found out about it a month before our wedding. The Monday after the wedding he began his treatments, and luckily beat it after an operation and chemo treatments.

For almost 14 years he beat cancer, but toward the end the doctor’s grew concerned that the cancer was coming back. We never learned if it did because he died after following a heart condition and then a stroke while in the hospital.

I’d like to say that was the only way cancer has affected my life, but it isn’t. I remember vividly being pregnant with my oldest when we drove the five hours to visit my brother. He’d suffered through years of having kidney stones that formed too hard to be broken up as most people’s had. He’d gone through so many surgeries that the doctors couldn’t chance doing more.

So, I thought the family was just going for a visit. Imagine everyone’s despair when he announced he’d been diagnosed with leukemia.

There was talk of doing a bone marrow transplant, but my husband wasn’t a match, and I was pregnant. My parents, the doctors said, were too old to be considered, and my other brother had health problems of his own that prevented him from being considered.

My brother lived for another six years before he was taken from us. I came a bit late in my parent’s life as my brothers’ were 9 and 12 years older than me, so at times he was more of a father than brother.

I pray for the day they find a cure for the many forms of cancer. Until then I hold out hope the medicines they’re developing will help everyone.

ForeverMine_300x190I’ll be giving away a copy of my Scottish Medieval novella FOREVER MINE to one lucky commenter! J

Here’s a blurb:

A Highlander bent on revenge…
Braden MacAlister only has vengeance on his mind. It has consumed him since the murder of his family. His every thought, every action is in bringing down the man responsible. Until he lays eyes on Jean.
A lass who dared to challenge her heart…
Jean MacKay’s entire existence is turned upside down when her clan is invaded by Niall MacDougall and he takes her prisoner. Yet, everything changes when Niall and his men are surrounded by The Ghost.
A union of two hearts…
Whispers of Braden MacAlister run rampant through the Highlands, but it isn’t until Jean sees the imposing warrior for herself that she realizes he is the answer to all their prayers. Jean defies everything to stand next to Braden and the love developing between them. But will it be enough to put an end to Niall once and for all?

Thank you again Donna for being our special guest today. And thank you for offering a copy of your great ebook FOREVER MINE as a giveaway. Readers keep in mind today one commenter will also win a “goodie bag” with some bath and body products, a note pad, a few surprises, and a tote that says “fight like a girl”, as well as an ebook copy of ENTANGLED (the anthology where all proceeds go to cancer research). So be sure to comment. And who knows there maybe a few extra books thrown in the goodie bag just because.

Also remember the purpose of this week to remind people to get tested, to talk to your family about cancer in all it’s many forms, please remember to hug your family today, let them know you love them and tell them to talk to their doctor about anything, to ask questions! There are sites where you can get a list of questions to ask. Thank  you again Donna for being our guest and sharing your story with us. You are an inspiration to us all!

*as a note this means there will be 1 winner of FOREVER MINE by Donna Grant and 1 winner of the goodie bag and ebook copy of ENTANGLED, so 2 winners*

51SxCOWMEEL__SL500_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-46,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_

Now for my blog post. Today I wanted to kick off this week by telling you a bit about my mother-in-law, Elizabeth Ann Whitley Keel. Now I know there are jokes about mother-in-laws and how bad they are, and while mine could drive me nuts, I loved her. She was truly like another mother, she’d get mad at me, she’d tell me things that hurt, but she loved me. She treated me just like her son, same as my mom does. My mom loved her as well. When me and my husband married we really did merge our families. My mother-in-law, who I always called, Mrs. Ann, was a great woman. She left behind a husband and only one son, my husband, and 2 grandchildren. She passed away too young.

02-03-2008 01;46;46PM

The image above is Mrs. Ann, my husband, and my father-in-law, Ray, it was taken on our wedding day, June 22, 1996.

Mrs. Ann battled breast cancer 15yrs earlier and won. Then she got a different form of cancer that took her life. She was a strong woman who battled this disease with grace and courage. I’m including various images of her. I’ve battled with what to write, she wasn’t perfect, but she was Mrs. Ann. She was a good woman, had her faith, and loved her family. I miss her still today. She knew before the doctors ever told her that she had cancer and that this time she wouldn’t win the battle, but she still fought it. We so wish she’d have won that battle, there are times when anger will peek it’s head up for all of us, anger that she died so young, anger that a cure hasn’t been found, anger that she didn’t fight harder. While we know she did all she could, I’m not gonna lie and say it’s not there. Here is one of my favorite images of Mrs. Ann, this is her as a little girl,

02-03-2008 02;30;23PMI don’t know why I love it, but I do.

And here she is with our kids, 02-03-2008 02;54;14PM

02-03-2008 02;16;32PManother favorite image of mine, Mrs. Ann with my husband a little boy. I just love the look of this image.

02-03-2008 02;47;45PM

The image above is one most say looks the most like her,she was a smoker and there was nothing we could do to change that, and nope Lung Cancer wasn’t what took her life.

moma, Mrs. Ann

The above image is hazy but this is my mom and Mrs. Ann on our wedding day. Me and my husband are extremely lucky we didn’t/don’t have one mother who loves us we have two. They both love us and can get angry at us, and don’t always take their child’s side in moments but through all we know no matter what both of these wonderful amazing woman will always love us. We are their children and for that we thank God. He couldn’t have picked better mother’s for either of us. Thank you God for giving us the mothers you did, we treasured our time with Mrs.Ann and miss her. We know each day is a blessing with my mother and pray we get to keep her for a LONG time.

If you would like to share your stories with us please do so. We will be featuring various authors later this week, some may talk about cancer, others not. I hope you will enjoy these posts and that you will learn things or find hope. I’m including a link to various resources for Cancer if you’d like to help out, help us promote ENTANGLED so tons of money can be given to research.

American Cancer Society

National Cancer, How to find Resources in Community

Susan G Komen for the Cure

Cancer Centers of America

There are so many more links I could provide. If you all would like me to, please let me know. For now I’ll give you details on how you can win a copy of ENTANGLED, ebook format only.

Giveaway

If you would like to win a goodie bag with some bath and body products, a note pad, a tote(says “fight like a girl”) and a few surprises, along with an ebook copy of ENTANGLED, all you have to do is comment here.I’d love it if you tweeted about this post and this week, helped us spread the word about ENTANGLED but I’m not making it a must.
