Sneak Peek Sunday

I had SO much fun at my first Sneak Peek last Sunday that I’m back for MORE – MORE excerpts, MORE new and new-to-me authors, MORE book friends, and MORE great reading opportunities. I hope you enjoy this new tease from PRINCE OF SHADOWS, the latest release in my “By Moonlight” dark paranormal shape-shifter series. And then promise me you’ll hop along the Sneak Peek links to devour other tasty samples. No calories, only delicious temptation!

Sneak Peek from PRINCE OF SHADOWS:

“Open your eyes, princess.”

Her lashes fluttered, and the harsh beauty of his features filled her vision like an erotic dream.

“I wanted you to know who was kissing you this time.”

She went flat-footed. With a quick wrenching twist, she escaped his grasp and fled the room.

When Cale emerged from the bathroom draped in a towel, Kendra skirted the big bed, keeping a wary distance. Her wet clothes lay on the tiles by the soaking tub. She’d found among all those filmy confections in the closet the one thing that didn’t scream “Do me, hot stuff.” Conservative black leggings and an oversize sweatshirt didn’t make him want her any less. But tonight, he looked no further than keeping her in the same room with him. As he reached into the closet, Cale heard her gasp as the towel dropped, and he smiled at the sound of her panicked scramble from the bedroom. In time, she’d realize she couldn’t outrun him, outwait him, or outsmart him.

She was going to be his queen.

Others Controlled Her Fate

A gentle female held hostage in a deadly play for power, Kendra Terriot’s only means of survival for herself and her family is to play to a careful courtship game. The one she chooses from her clan’s dangerous heirs will inherit the coveted crown, keeping her their prisoner forever . . . unless she can retain her virtue until rescue arrives.

The Past Destroyed His Dreams

Favored son of their brutal Shifter leader, the only calm in Cale Terriot’s violent world is a childhood love for his delicate distant cousin whom he’s pledged to make his queen. With Kendra at his side, he knows he can become the kind of ruler his clan needs, but first he must learn how to become the kind of mate she desires.

A Choice Would Determine Their Future

In a treacherous race for control, where weakness means death, Cale must prove he’s not the beast his beauty fears and still protect her, especially once her unrequited love returns to free her. The only way to win her respect could mean surrendering his throne. The only way to win her heart could mean letting her go . . . even if she no longer wants to be saved.

“An enthralling story with intrigue, betrayal, love, power, sacrifice, and loyalty that sheds new light on shape shifters. The world is truly magnificent! Be prepared to get sucked in!”Faerietale Books

“A fantastic paranormal romance. The world building was utterly flawless set in a cutthroat royal arena where secrets and betrayal are rampant. Add in the prince most skilled in navigating the games, a woman who is unprepared to face all the danger, and sprinkle a heap of romance and we have this spectacular book. Loved it!”Imagine a World
