Dark Indiscretions Re-release

You may or may not have seen by now that I am revamping Dark Indiscretions book 1. I feel a lot of things were left out and I can honestly say I had no idea what I was doing when I first wrote it. Not only was it my first actually book (I’d only written poems and two short stories before this). I didn’t really know my world that I’d created. I kind of just went with it and lately all the pieces started fitting together into something that started to make sense. So I’ve held off on the rest of the series to go back to the beginning and flesh some things out. When it’s all said and done 8K will be added to the overall total word count. Bringing it to about 45K from it’s original 37K. Now for the most part the plot and people will stay the same but a few scenes as well as a bit of detail has been added. After thinking about it I saw that I left a lot of things out. Things that are important and I didn’t want to just randomly toss this information into the last two books of the Dark Indiscretions Series. The re-release will be Oct. 31, 2015. For now here’s a little snippet:

UNEDITED AND SUBJECTED TO CHANGE! COPYRIGHT 2015 SHAKUITA JOHNSON

He had a spell he needed to cast before he made his move. Reinforcements would need to be summoned before he showed his hand to Jennifer. She would not expect this turn of events. Making his way to the basement of the townhouse he’d bought, he went to the giant pentagram he’d etched into the concrete. The amount of magic he was about to channel would require a few herbs to focus the energy. Could he do it without them? Absolutely, but using the herbs would make the task quicker. Raw energy channel was always risky, no matter how old and experienced the Mystic doing the channeling was. And resurrecting people took even more energy and focus.
Going over to his impressive bookshelf, he looked through them all until he found the one he’d written centuries ago. It had the spell that would help him do this summoning right the first time. Looking over what he’d written he went over to his herb cabinet and pulled down some anise, gardenia, and thistle. They were good for conjuring the dead. The spell would make them whole again once the herb mixture summoned them to him. He took down a bowl and crushed the herbs up inside it. After sprinkling a bit of oil over them he struck a match and threw it in. Gently picking the bowl up, he walked back over to the pentagram and put the bowl in the center.
The smoke started to thicken as the herbs burned. Her started to slowly fan the smoke out from the bowl with his hands. Thinking of those he wished to summon until their shapes started to form around the circle. Once he could clearly see their confused spirits, he stood up tall and put as much of his power behind his words as he could.

Blood of my blood
Mind to mind
Ripped from your bodies
Now turned to spirit
My power calls to thee
Come back and follow me
Taken from this world too soon
Now on this day of a crescent moon
I nearby grant you all your power
So come and reclaim what was taken in your weaken hour
Revenge is close, within your grasp
Snatch it quick or for the opportunity is fast

Or something like that. He was never good at the writing spells part. He preferred just blasting raw power into his enemies. Once Jennifer was his he’d make her write him better spells. For now he stood by and watched his handiwork. The spell worked and that was all that matter. Jennifer wouldn’t know what hit her.

Title: My Fairy Darkness
Synopsis:
There are those that believe that fairies are cute, dainty, little creatures that can be held in the palm of their hand. This is a gross misconception. We don’t flit around, spread pixie dust or any other crap like that. I, for one, wouldn’t be caught dead in those skimpy, slutty, attention grabbing outfits that she parades around in. We definitely aren’t off spreading love and whatever else that little twit stands for. I am nobody’s Tinkerbell.
Who I am is the reason for this tale? It wasn’t supposed to be like this. I didn’t think that it would get this bad. Yet, here I sit. I am sitting at the head of the table, watching an annoying little man make his way to the elders of our community to inform them of something I already know about. If I weren’t who I was, then I would’ve left already. Unfortunately, I am who I am and I have to give a damn.
I’m called Sapphire to those that know death and evil.
Arabella Gwin is a fairy unlike any other. This particular fairy would carve her name in your chest if you remotely asked about Neverland or Peter Pan. She lives a dangerous life until she has an unexpected meeting with Cobalt. What happens next even she couldn’t anticipate.

The research gained from his loss won the doctor a spot in a Chicago hospital dedicated to experimental treatments for diseases like his son had. Though he would never be able to benefit from his research, the doctor hoped the new job would mend his family’s grief. That’s when the headaches started.
Brain cancer was eating away at him. Chemo was his only option. They said his life would get better. They said the treatment would work. But Doctor Stevenson knew his biological clock would fizz out one way or another—unless he could find a way to keep it ticking trapped in one of his patients’ bodies.

He has been lingering, and it both calms and arouses her. Calms her, because he claims that he will help her; arouses her,because she has not been touched by a man in many years and his feather-like touches are enough to send her off he edge. Her mind is clouded by her: desires, fears, and her duties.

All in the name of some archaic god or another, the Spook Squad mops up the mess, and it is usually – a mess. It’s a bloody job they do, don’t know how they sleep to be honest, I have trouble most days.
More often than not I’m called in for my extensive knowledge in the occult and my other less recognized abilities. Can’t really put on my application, ability to read memories, I’d be put into the crazy bin.

Book Title: Dark Indiscretions: Seer Destined (Dark Indiscretions Series, Book 3)

Author: Shakuita Johnson

Release Date: March 17, 2015

Seer_Destined

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?

Incredible story.[…] Must read!” – Kel Hawk

As we get more information the story gets more exciting. Is it all predestined or will free will allow the characters to make their own future. 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.

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?

Excerpt

1996

“So what in the hell is phase three exactly?” Sam asked.

“Weapons,” Alexander said.

If it wasn’t for all those years spent learning to contain himself, Alexander would have been jumping up and down at the thought of finally being able to use weapons. It was a dream come true.

“Like hunting rifles?”

“Better.”

“What’s better than hunting rifles? Ain’t nothing better than hunting rifles, boy!”

Alexander rolled his eyes. He swore Sam’s accent got thicker at times just to annoy the hell out of him. He did it on purpose to sound as ignorant as some of the other legacies thought he was, but Alexander knew better. Sam was smarter than Alexander and Alexander was a genius.

“You’re an idiot.”

“Yep and you still love me. Who’s teaching us these weapons you’re so excited about?”

Alexander gave Sam a rare smile.

“My father and your grandfather.”

“Don’t do that shit! I hate when you get that creepy smile on your face. It’s borderline psychotic.”

“And I hate when you sound like Hillbilly Bob, but you do it anyway to annoy me.”

“Truer words ain’t never been spoken.”

“Let’s go, Bob.”

Alexander and Samuel rushed to the shooting range on the hundreds of acres of land owned by The Society. Most of the Legacy families also had houses on the land but there was also cool stuff like the gym and this range. They were early as usual but Alexander’s father and Sam’s grandfather were already there as well.

“Well, someone’s eager for weapons training,” Derrick said.

Sam pointed his finger at Alexander and Alexander slapped it away.

“I just like to be early to things,” Alexander Jr. said.

“Like your father that way,” Derrick said.

“I learn from the best,” Alexander Jr. said.

“Flattery won’t soften me up, son,” Alexander Sr. said.

Sam snickered in the background.

“I can still beat you up,” Alexander Jr. said.

“I’ve been practicing with my brother,” Sam said, raising his chin.

He was back from the Hell his niece had sent him to for the second time and he was ready to make her life miserable. He also had a daughter to mold and an ancient “Prophecy” to make come true. He wanted everything to burn and die around him. He felt no love, no loyalty, only rage. Yet one action causes several reactions and before he knew what was happening fate had other plans for him, but he had his own plans…

Alexander Carvanis, Mooyer. Legacy. After his cult-like upbringing he only knew one thing…kill anything that wasn’t human and deemed “The Tarnished” by the Mooyer Society, lead by his father. He had one thought in mind and it wasn’t his own. The only things he knew were what his father had told him. He followed for years without question and it all came tumbling down because of his blind obsession to bring down the one he never trusted. Five forbidden journals later and his whole life had changed. 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. So much more than she had ever dreamed were possible. Secrets, lies, and countless betrayals 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 they over come a vendetta older than what they knew was possible or will wounds be too old to heal?

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?

  • Yes, I would sacrifice my own self and would kill anyone that with mess with my babies. I love both of my children.

 

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
