So Many Changes

As I’ve finished yet another two classes on my way to my BA in Psychology I can’t help but feel excited. One class to go which starts May 5 and I am in there. Recently I also took a CLEP for Public Speaking so I could complete my military degree in Logistics so I also am now the proud owner of an AA degree as well! It feels good. So many changes, good ones, and I couldn’t be happier. As I transition from military to civilian life it seems all my little ducks are getting in a row. Received great news on the condo I’m buying, we are progressing along nicely with that, was accepted to one of the grad schools I applied for, and I’ve been getting job offers left and right so I am so grateful for that. It’s one less thing I will have to stress about since I will be moving to a new place and meeting new faces. My career as an author is going pretty well, I just published my second book April 15th and I’m working on the third. The story is still flowing and I’m grateful that it is. I hope that as I grow as an author my story reflects all that I’m learning. So as I get ready for my last full week in the United States Air Force and take a week break before I start my last class, I’ve declared this weekend a lazy one. May you all have a great weekend as I know I will by either curling up with a good book/s and watching movies and TV shows!

What would you do if the one fate chose for you vanished into thin air? What would you give up? Who would you become to stay with that person?

Krista Bell finally knows what it’s like to be free. The torture she endured at the hands of her psychotic father have unleashed the monster her mother tried so hard to help her suppress. The only thing she wants to do is be the shadow in the night that everyone is afraid of.

Taser is barely holding it together. He lost Kris once to her father and now he’s losing her to the monster she is becoming. He’s also barely containing his own monster since Krista decided she didn’t need her mates anymore. Nathan is still near but he may not be enough.

Nathan is on the verge of losing not one but both of his mates. One vanished without a trace. The other is avoiding him. He has run out of patience with them both.

But when the monster that Krista has become comes to them with a proposal will they take her up on it and possibly lose themselves or will they try to talk her down and get the beast to put back on her chain?

Excerpt

1625

It had been two months. Two months since she killed her whole family. Two months since she ran and never looked back. Two months of looking over her shoulder. Something was wrong with her. Jennifer Johnston just knew it. She was craving things she had never wanted before, never ever had needed. It was getting harder and harder to resist the silent call, the cravings that started to crawl up her throat to the point of choking her with their mounting intensity. She didn’t know how much longer she could run, how much longer she could say no to these sudden scary and violent urges.

She needed to find someone to talk to, another Mystic perhaps, but she didn’t know who she could trust. She had done something no other Mystic had done before. She wasn’t like the rest of them. She was different. Some may even say defective. She didn’t want to become an inbred freak like the rest of them, but she feared it had been done. The things her uncle had succeeded in doing before she could get away from him, before she had the strength to kill him, may be coming back to haunt her.

She needed to rest for just a little while. That old barn looked like as good a place as any. She would only rest for a second more. As she quickly and quietly made her way to her destination, she heard noises in the distance. What sounded like a tiny cavalry was coming up fast behind her. She tried to duck before she was spotted, but it seemed her luck was still running thin. She braced herself for a possible fight.

“Halt! What business do you have on this land?” a male voice called out.

“I’m just a bit lost. Could you point me in the direction of an inn?” Jenny asked, trying to appear disoriented.

“Lying Mystic scum! We can smell your trickery and deceit from here. Where are the rest of you? What trap is this?” the male demanded.

Shit. Humans she could have easily dealt with, other paranormals not so much. This would be tricky. She counted eight soldiers. They should have brought more.

“I don’t want any trouble. Leave me be and I’ll be on my way,” Jenny tried to reason with the creatures.

“Grab her!” the male demanded.

Awesome! They were going to play try to capture the Mystic. Jenny did something she had never done before. She used her Mystic powers. She called upon all the energy she could muster, which was a whole hell of a lot, and let loose. Damn, something was defiantly changing with her right now, but she didn’t have time to explore it. She heard screams from all eight men. She had overloaded their nervous systems. She could see blood start to seep from any and everywhere possible. It was disgusting.

Not wanting them to suffer more than they were already, Jenny sent a final blast and everything stopped. Not a single heart beat anymore. She had killed them, every last one of them. She didn’t have time to feel bad for the lives she had taken. They left her no choice. The worst part of it all, she thought to herself, was that she should have drained at least one of them dry. She was so fucking hungry! She performed a quick spell to turn the bodies to ash and continued on her way to that damn barn.

Guest Post – Stephanie Williams

Office playStephFB

SW-OP-FG-750x1125

OFFICE PLAY By Stephanie Williams Coming this Spring.

 

 

Jeanette Foster is an outside auditor for hire and she’s very good at her job but nothings prepared her for this.

 

Someone is stealing at Lambert, Parker and Bradley, a prestigious advertising agency. And not just office supplies. Laptops, company cars and expensive software just for starters.

 

But that’s not what makes her assignment interesting. It’s her new working partner, the head of IT. A modern day Tarzan by the name of Adam. And she’s more than willing to be his Jane.

 

Adam Strathmore is the head of IT. The new outside auditor had him wanting to pound his chest and drag her off to his lair; where he’d keep her naked. He does something he swore he would never do again—get involved with someone at work. But the attraction is instant and he can’t contain himself. In or out of the office.

 

Can they solve what looks like ordinary office supply pilfering and get their relationship back on track without both of them getting fired?

 

EXCERPT:

 

Adam looked up from his cell, and stood in front of the Miss Foster’s office door. He pressed his ear to the door. He could hear her on the phone, but knocked anyway, hoping that she would let him in and he could set her up while she continued her conversation.

“Come in.”

He opened the door quietly and walked in. The woman hung up the phone and got up, a brilliant smile swept across her face. Her beautiful face.

“Hello, you must be Adam. I’m Jeanette Foster. I’m the new Chief Auditor of Operations.” She stepped from behind her desk and reached out to shake his hand.

“Yeah…Adam….Strathmore,” he barely croaked out. Va-va-va-voom! His crew wasn’t just talking this time. This woman in every sense of the word was drop dead gorgeous.

He took her hand, but kept his eyes focused on her. All of her. From her head to her feet. She was tall, at least five ten. Stacked! It’s been a long time since he’s seen a woman with real curves like this. Now he would admit, his thirty-five years hasn’t exposed him to every woman on the planet. But it seemed every woman he met at the club, or at work, seemed more focused on having a hard, lean, body more than him.

Her skin coloring reminded him of a rich cup of coffee, with just a dollop of creamer. Even with the hair pulled back, the thick black ponytail hung below her shoulder blades. Her face was heart shaped and her large round hazel eyes were dazzling.

Adam found himself moving closer to her, her hand still in his. It was her mouth that was pulling him. Those full, burgundy lips were calling to him. And damn it, if he didn’t want to answer.

In that brief moment, a vision of him and her on the floor of her office having buck wild sex played in his mind. The thought of them naked together made his groin ache. He never had a reaction this fast to any woman.

“Mr. Strathmore?”

Adam shook his head, when he realized that Miss Foster had been calling him. “Huh?”

“I asked if that’s my new laptop.” She pointed downward.

He looked under his arm. “Oh yeah. And please….call me Adam.” He finally let go of her hand. “I’m here to set things up for you.”

“Great, I want to get started as soon as possible.”

“That’s what I’m here for Ms. Foster.”

“Please, call me Jeanette. Ms. makes me feel old.”

“I don’t think anything could ever make you feel old. You’re an exquisite looking woman.”

Before anyone could react to his words, they both stood there looking at each other, while what sounded like her cell phone rang in the background.
