WeWriWa: May Day!! May Day!!


May brings the "Midnight" rerelease of vampire romance MIDNIGHT SHADOWS (a personal favorite!) As I've said, I adore the human hero, Frank Cobb, the shady g-man from MIDNIGHT REDEEMER. Along with having non-vampire leads (but plenty of really nasty preternatural goings on), SHADOWS is set in the jungles of Peru for a steamy (on more than one level!) journey into real and imagined darkness. I've seen the new cover (Awesome!) but have been sworn to secrecy so I'm dangling another sneak peek to whet the imagination:
SHE’D WANTED HIM to kiss her. 

That knowledge shook him nearly as much as the thought of her in danger, making him pace the porch, desperately wishing for a cigarette. 

He’d felt the instant her intent had shifted from seeking comfort to steeping desire, in the way her body went from inanimate to molten in a single luxurious movement. He’d been doing the noble thing in taking her into his arms, to console her like a child. Well, that child had grown up damn and disturbingly fast, and he’d found himself with a willing woman in his arms. 

He’d remained still while his imagination roamed every long and lithe degree of her, filling in what he didn’t know from the feel of how she pressed against him. No fragile girl – probably from toting that hernia-popping suitcase of hers-she was tough and toned and yet still deliciously woman. He’d wanted to seek out soft spots with his hands, to taste sweet places with his mouth. 

When her breath blew warm and seducing upon his neck, he’d been a shivering mass of lust right down to his cotton socks, and if she’d lifted her head and he’d seen longing in her big brown eyes, it would have been all over for him . . . his nobility would have cracked wide open. 

Thank God she had more control than he did at that precarious moment.

I always anticipate good things to come in May (birthday month, after all!) This one starts off with an AWESOME sale on the first two books in my Touched by Midnight vampire romance series! From May 1 to May 15, book 1: MIDNIGHT KISS will be available through all outlets for $0.99 and MIDNIGHT TEMPTATION, book 2, will be $1.99! This is better than getting two books for one and a fab opportunity to sink your teeth into the series and chew your way up to MIDNIGHT SHADOWS which will be out at the end of the month. 






Happy May Day to all. I'm at a weekend writers retreat(!) and hopefully busy finishing up my W-I-P, PRINCE OF HONOR. More on that next weekend . . .

  2. Mmmmm, yummy. I love your alliteration and sizzling seduction. No one does sex before you've even had an exchange of body fluids better than Gideon! LOL! You're the queer or foreplay! You should write a manual for sex therapists! Sounds like you've got a May banquet on the way! Hot stuff!
