Synopsis

**Contains adult language and situations M/M/F**

Three destinies entwined since the beginning of time…

James Johnston, ruthless, evil, Mystic, is not looking for love. In fact, the only things keeping him going are revenge, obsession, and an ancient Prophecy. He’s back from the Hell his niece sent him to for the second time and is ready to make her immortal life miserable. He also has a daughter to mold and an ancient Prophecy to fulfill. He wants everything to burn and die around him. He feels no love, no loyalty—only rage. Yet, one action sprouts several reactions and before long, he may lose complete control over his own fate. But not to worry, he has a plan…

Alexander Carvanis, Mooyer. Legacy. After his occult upbringing, he only knows one thing: kill anything that has been labeled “Tarnished” by the Mooyer Society, led by his father. He is obsessed with one thought in his mind and it isn’t his own. The only things he’s ever known are what his father told him. He’s followed for years without question and it all comes tumbling down because of his blind obsession to bring down the one he never trusted. Five forbidden journals later and his whole life has changed. Now, the very person he set out to ruin is the only person he can trust not to kill him on sight…

Isobelle Mina, freak, or so she always thought. But there is more to her—so much more than she had ever dreamed possible. Secrets, lies, and betrayal threaten to push her over the edge. A destiny she isn’t sure she wants and two men who are fated to be hers, if only they can see past their hatred…

Will these three overcome a vendetta thousands of years in the making, or will the wounds be too old to heal?

I can not wait for the next installment to see where they go next. An excellent story by a truly talented author!!” – Janet (Amazon)
excerpt

Isobelle didn’t want to be partnered with that ass hat, but she didn’t want to be strapped to a desk either so she kept her mouth shut. But she was not getting in the car with him after his little display. She didn’t care if she had to walk to her car. She stormed out of the conference room in a daze. This day just kept getting better and better.

“Isobelle, hurry up and get in the car before I leave you,” Alexander shouted.

“Go fuck yourself! I’ll find my own way home,” Isobelle said.

“Excuse me?”

“Fuck off and leave me alone.”

Isobelle was pulled into a secluded room and pushed up against a wall. She was held firmly in place by one of Alexander’s knees and forearm. He gave her the strangest look before his mouth came crashing down onto hers. She stood there, stunned for several seconds before she grabbed him by the back of his neck and pressed her body closer to his. His hands came down to rest on her behind and he squeezed. He picked her up so quickly that she skipped a few breaths and then could feel something solid and cool pressed up against her back. He’d moved her on top of the table that was in the room. She could feel him through his pants, and the rubbing motions he was making were driving her insane. Isobelle had never been intimate with a man before and she was all but purring like a cat.

Alexander’s hands slid up under her shirt, blazing a path to her breasts. Just as quickly as they were there, they were gone and her shirt was being ripped down the middle to expose her in a way she’d never been exposed before. The look in Alexander’s eyes was one of possession. In that moment he owned every part of Isobelle and nothing else mattered. He started to attack her nipples with a vengeance and Isobelle arched her back up to meet him. She was greedy for his touches, his kisses, and most of all his eyes. She wanted his eyes on her, always.

Isobelle felt herself fumbling with the buttons on Alexander’s slacks when just as quickly as he’d attacked her, he pulled away. The loss of his skin on hers was so drastic that she shivered in its absence. The look on his face was a mix of horror and longing. Isobelle didn’t understand.

“Alex, what’s wrong?” Isobelle asked.

She was panting but she’d managed the words. He was silent for a long time, too long.

“Don’t call me that. This,” Alexander said, pointing between the two of them, “was a mistake that will never happen again. Either get in the car or walk home. I don’t care. Either way I’m leaving in the next two minutes.”

Isobelle watched as Alexander walked out the door without a backwards glance. She looked down at her ripped shirt and the thought of walking out behind him in the state she was in reduced her to tears. For the first time in her life she was ashamed, and for that Isobelle might never be able to fully forgive him. With as much dignity as she could summon, Isobelle held her shirt closed with her hands, walked out the room Alexander had pushed her in, past The Society’s secretary, and left the building to start her extremely long walk-of-shame to her car. Because, true to his word, Alexander had left when she hadn’t come out in time. She was falling in love with a complete and utter asshole and she had no idea what she was going to do about it.

MORE DETAILS

 

 

LIFE

How would you describe your life overall?

  • I am Jennifer Johnston a true pureblooded half-vampyra shape and half-shifting witch. Unlike any other Mystics, I am disgusted by my own family’s culture on marrying and engaging to sex to one of your family members just to keep the bloodline pure. With this in my mind, I wasn’t completely like all other Mystics, but I still considers myself as one of them as I still know how to torture and kill if I need to. I believe in love. I always wanted to find my Nyhiya fated mate.

 

What is your most memorable moment?

 

What has been the most important event in your life?

 

What do you consider your greatest achievement?

  • I think my greatest achievement would be my own daughter, Krista. I protected her for years. I even tried to show her the life is not all about killing. I helped Krista to be more than what Krista believes she was born.

 

What is your number one regret?

 

When were you the most afraid?

 

What is your greatest fear? Why?

 

What is the most honorable or “good” thing you’ve ever done?

  • The most honorable/good thing that I ever done would be not to be like any other Mystic who love their own kind, I chose another path and that is to dreamed of love and mating.

 

What is the most “evil” thing you have ever done?

  • It was year 1625, at Jamestown, West Virginia where we had our family dinner and the night I murdered my entire family. After that incident, I was known to be the most lunatic Mystic in our kind.

 

Have you ever been in love? If so, describe what happened

 

 

 

 

Do you have a notorious or celebrated ancestor/relative? Does that affect you?

  • Yes, it would be James my uncle. He raped me and it was much worse than the rest of what my family had inflicted on me. Much worse, it does affect me big time. I felt mortified and humiliated. My past still affects and invades my own future. I am rest assured that I would never have a moment of peace.

 

Do you have any secrets? If so, what are they?

  • Yes, it was when my uncle raped me. I kept this secret for a long period of time. I didn’t want other people to look at me pity and disgust after I got raped.

 

 

PERSONALITY

 

What three words would you use to best describe your personality?

  • I would describe myself as a deadly, cunning and vindictive Mystic. A killer and very powerful one. I know how to make decisions on my own, sadly, my daughter is not like that.

 

What three words would others probably use to describe you?

  • Lunatic (because I murdered my whole family from the past)
  • Nuts/Crazy (because no one can kill his/her own family like what I did)
  • Strong woman (despite being rape, I still decided to keep the child and raise her as much as I can)
  • Misunderstood Mystic (people liked to refer to as evil reincarnated)
  • Dual Nature

 

Why are you risking your life to adventure?

 

Do you tend to argue with people or avoid conflict?

 

Are you a listener or a talker?

 

How long does it take for you to trust others?

 

Do you hold grudges?

  • When my uncle raped me, I wanted to die, but then grief turned to rage (violent, uncontrollable anger)

 

Do you tend to take on leadership roles in social situations?

 

Do you like interacting with large groups of people?

 

Are you generally introverted or extroverted?

 

 

PERSONAL EMOTIONS

 

What makes you sad? Happy? Mad? Why?

 

  • Sad: My life was a living hell because my family is a bunch of psychos. I don’t even care about them.

 

I would also feel really bad if one of my mates will be lost/dead.

 

It was when Krista tries to kill my unborn child, it was the worst feeling in the world. To chose one child over the other.

 

  • Mad: I don’t share with my family’s perversions. I would never engage any sex either one of my brothers. My family’s culture just makes me feel disgusted.

 

I was shocked, pissed and a little numb when James took Krista from me.

 

  • Happy: I considered myself being lucky to have met my mates, they are always there for me. I could kill for them.

 

Do you have any biases or prejudices?

 

What do you think of love?

 

Do you believe in self-sacrifice for the greater good?

Blog Tour – Dark Indiscretions: A Prequel by Shakuita Johnson

Tomorrow starts the official week long blog tour for my third book Dark Indiscretions: A Prequel… 19 blogs have signed up but I figured I’d kick the tour off first 🙂

 

“A friendship forged out of necessity

A bond broken and turned into hatred

One once looked at as a brother

The other loved to much and too soon”


James Johnston and Kain O’Grady once had a bond like no other ever seen before. Not only were they brothers of the heart, they were also lovers.

Centuries they spent at each other’s side. Through good times and through bad, but never did their relationship suffer until one pregnancy and one prophecy changes their lives forever.

Betrayal is seen at every corner and madness close behind.

Excerpt #1

James didn’t know what to say to comfort Kain so he just said nothing. He let his body talk for him. He turned his body around so he was facing Kain and looked into his honey-colored eyes and felt something he couldn’t explain. His eyes traveled down Kain’s face and settled on his lips. He remembered that kiss just before he died. He wanted to feel Kain’s lips on his again. He moved his hands to run up Kain’s chest.

“What are you doing?” came Kain’s breathy inquire.

“Shh,” was all James said in reply.

He brought his lips to Kain’s again and this time pressed more firmly. He hadn’t a clue what he was doing but whatever it was he needed more. He felt not only himself but Kain’s hardness. He moved himself to straddle Kain’s thighs and let out a groan when their penises came in contact with each other. He wrapped his arms around Kain’s neck and felt Kain’s arms around his waist, pulling him closer. Locking them together more firmly. He started to rock his hips slowly and heard Kain’s breath catch in his throat, followed by a small growl.

Their kisses were becoming sloppier and more hurried. James started to rock his hips a little faster. He didn’t know what either of them needed but he just knew he needed to go faster. Kain’s lips left his to suck on his neck. He could feel the scrap of his fangs and it only served to make him moan louder. Water was sloshing all about as their thrusts grew quicker and their breathing harsher. He could fill tingling all over his body and his claws begin to curl out from his fingers. Whatev

er they were doing felt wonderful and he never wanted it to stop. Kain kept nibbling and sucking on his neck and had even removed one of his arms to fist his hand in James’s hair. Suddenly Kain pulled James’s head back and struck. His fangs embedded deeply into his neck and before James knew what was happening a shout was escaping his throat as thick ropes of fluid left his body through his penis. Kain experienced the same sensation.

Kain took his fangs out of James’s neck and bared his own flesh. Seconds later he felt pleasure unlike anything else when James pulled blood from his neck. Whatever they had just done would have to be repeated as many times as they could. Next time he would make sure to stretch it out, though. He vaguely remembered James licking on his neck before sleep took him from not only the shock of James’s second death but the sensations his body had just experienced. He was fairly certain that James had fallen asleep as well. The only thought he had was that it was going to be freezing in the bath when they awoke.

Excerpt #2

James looked up from the dirt piles he was playing with at the sound of someone shuffling up the valley. The midday sun was hot, blinding him with its light. Through the sunbeams, a small boy ambled to where James knelt in the dirt. He had never seen this boy before and James was wary. Mystics were the top of the food chain, and his father would kill him if he let someone get the better of him. It didn’t matter that he was only six or that the boy appeared smaller than him. It wouldn’t do to be taken by surprise by this stranger. He stood, baring his tiny fangs.

“Who are you? Why have you come here?” James growled, voice tinny but fierce. Even at six, he was a trained killer.

“My name is Kain. Our parents were talking down towards camp. They said you were here playing. I asked if I could come join you, so here I am.” Kain’s tiny hands curled to his side and his head cocked.

“Are you new here?” James asked, fangs still visible. He wasn’t ready to retract them just yet.

“Yes, we walked about two weeks time to get to this part of the hillside,” Kain said. “Would it be alright if I played with you?”

James eyed the strange boy suspiciously.

“Are you a Mystic, too?”

Kain smiled, his top lip pulling back to reveal his own set of small, pearly fangs.

“You don’t have a sister?” James asked.

“No. It’s just me.”

“Me too! Want to be bestest friends?” James withdrew his fangs at this unprecedented prospect.

“Yes!” Kain shouted while bouncing up and down, hands waving wildly.

“Good. We will be friends forever and ever.” James said with confidence.

To secure their blood bond forever, the two boys each nicked the tips of their forefingers with their fangs until blood bubbled at the slight wounds. When their bloody fingertips touched, an instant, unbreakable bond was sealed. They would be best friends forever, even as long as they both still lived and even passing into death. A bond between two Mystics could very well last forever. If nothing came between them, then James and Kain could be blood bound for an eternity.
