You wait, you plan, you worry, but nothing prepares you for RELEASE DAY of a new title. Okay, so it’s actually tomorrow, June 20, but I’m gearing up for it. It’s not like REMEMBERED BY MOONLIGHT is new. My dark paranormal shape-shifter book had its debut in 2014, but is being reborn within the embrace of the boxed set PARANORMAL ATTRACTIONS (at $0.99 – a steal!!). Sorta like starting to date again and meeting all new people! Okay, now I am nervous!
What better way to introduce my shape-shifter hero than through the eyes of the woman who loves him in today’s excerpt:
The bare wall of windows let in the lights of the city against an ink-black sky, silhouetting a solitary figure. Her throat clutched as she recalled the first time she’d seen him there when the building was still a metal skeleton, toeing the edge of the beam, his dark coat billowing behind him like the wings of a fallen angel. His pose was no less dramatic now, sleek, dark and solitary as he stared out into the night.
He turned slowly to face her.
Here was the Max Savoie she’d fallen helplessly in love with against all her best intentions—impeccably dressed, the lines of a designer suit skimming his long, lean and lethal frame, the toes of his athletic shoes peeping from beneath tailored slacks in sassy juxtaposition.
Darkness and shadow carved out features too rough and bold to be handsome, yet too compelling to be ignored. Unblinking eyes, as pale and green as the still waters of the bayou, shone with an eerie intensity from beneath an uncompromising line of heavy brows and unruly black hair nearly tamed by a stylishly short cut. Faint stubble shaded the set of his rugged jaw, lending a harshly dangerous air to his outward sophistication.
He was thuggishly elegant, graceful yet seething with raw power, aloof and still undeniably fascinating.
Everything she’d ever wanted.
I’ll be featuring snippets from the other books in the set right here throughout the next two weeks, so stop back for some samplings. (Hey, its $0.99! Nine reads! Such a deal!)
Paranormal Attractions Trailer!
Time to get back to PRINCE OF POWER (which was about a third written when I had to back track to PRINCE OF HONOR for sake of storyline). Colin Terriot . . . sigh.
