Teaser Tuesday: Rhapsodic

It's been a long time since I shared a teaser with you all, so I thought I'd post one from Rhapsodic, which is coming out fall of this year! Not going to lie, I sorta just closed my eyes and stopped on a random page, but I stumbled upon a good scene, so it all worked out for the best. :) It was supposed to be mini ... but I gots carried away! Enjoy!

By the way, for those of you who don't know, Callie, the main character, has a wrist full of beads that are essentially magical IOUs she owes Desmond "Des" Flynn (AKA, the Bargainer). Tht might erase some confusion while reading. :)


Rhapsodic Teaser

The Bargainer blocks my exit, his hands gripping the top of the doorframe. Unwillingly, my eyes move to those toned arms of his.

“What if I told you that you couldn’t go?” he says, his voice hypnotic. “That I wanted you to stay and use up some more of my beads?”

I didn’t actually think he would try to keep me here. He’s wanted nothing to do with me for so long that I can’t really imagine our relationship any other way.

“I wouldn’t believe you,” I say. “Now please, move.”

Des is staring at me strangely. He releases the doorframe and prowls forward. “Truth or dare?”

I back up, suddenly nervous at the look in his eyes.

“Des …”

“Dare,” he breathes.

In the next instant, he’s on me, his hands roughly cupping my cheeks. His mouth crashes into mine, his lips demanding.

Des is kissing me, and God is it savage.

I kiss him back without thinking, swept up into the taste of him and the feel of him holding me.

I’m supposed to be leaving, reclaiming my house and my life, but nope. It’s not going to happen, not while Des is demonstrating all the ways my taste in men was spot on when I was a teenager.

I’m backing up, and one of the Bargainer’s hands has dropped to my thigh, exposed by the high slits of my dress. His fingers move up and down the skin, up and down.

My back bumps into the wall. Des cages me in, holding me hostage with his body. My lips part, and Des’s tongue sweeps inside my mouth, claiming mine.

His hand moves to my breast, and I arch into him, my breath leaving me.

“Gods, Callie ...” he rasps.

Des’s wings materialize, spreading out and closing over the wall around me. While I kiss him, I begin to run my fingertips over them.

He groans, leaning into my touch.

“Feels too good.”

Rhapsodic Description



Hey hey readers!

Gueeessss what?! Rhapsodic, my upcoming NA paranormal romance trilogy finally has it's official description! I'm so excited to share this novel with you. It's been over two years in the making, and it stars a fae king and the siren who's indebted to him.

In the next couple of months, I'll post another teaser, as well as a Q&A on this series. But for now, check out the book's description:

Rhapsodic

Callypso Lillis is a siren with a very big problem, one that stretches up her arm and far into her past. For the last seven years she’s been collecting a bracelet of black beads up her wrist, magical IOUs for favors she’s received. Only death or repayment will fulfill the obligations. Only then will the beads disappear.

Everyone knows that if you need a favor, you go to the Bargainer to make it happen. He’s a man who can get you anything you want … at a price. And everyone knows that sooner or later he always collects.

But for one of his clients, he’s never asked for repayment. Not until now. When Callie finds the fae king of the night in her room, a grin on his lips and a twinkle in his eye, she knows things are about to change. At first it’s just a chaste kiss—a single bead’s worth—and a promise for more.

For the Bargainer, it’s more than just a matter of rekindling an old romance. Something is happening in the Otherworld. Fae warriors are going missing one by one. Only the women are returned, each in a glass casket, a child clutched to their breast. And then there are the whispers among the slaves, whispers of an evil that’s been awoken. 

If the Bargainer has any hope to save his people, he’ll need the help of the siren he spurned long ago. Only, his foe has a taste for exotic creatures, and Callie just happens to be one.

Blood and Sin is Now Out!

Hi readers!

The title of the post kinda says it all! Blood and Sin is now out! You can find it here! Ahhh, I'm so, so, so excited to share my newest series with you. It was a blast to write, and did I mention that I got to write it with my husband, Dan Rix?

For those of you who don't know, Blood and Sin is the first book in a NA paranormal romance trilogy that stars a demon (they prefer to be called Infernari), and a demon hunter bent on wiping them all out. There's dark magic and portals to hell (or Abyssos, as the natives call it). Oh, and I mentioned there was romance, didn't I? ;) 

I hope you enjoy reading Blood and Sin as much as Dan and I enjoyed writing it! And if you want to know more about Blood and Sin, read on for the description.







Blood and Sin

Hot-blooded, prideful, feral, Lana Malesuis is a demon. She has sworn an oath to heal her war-torn, dying species. Her method: drain human blood, use it to fuel her dark magic, reap human misfortune. She has come to the town of White Sulfur Springs to cull. 


Cold-blooded, ruthless, conniving, Jame Asher is a human. He has sworn to avenge his wife and baby girl, killed by demon magic. His plan: destroy demons’ portals, deprive them of their human blood supply, exterminate them one by one. He has come to White Sulfur Springs to kill. 


But when they meet, and he takes Lana as his prisoner, the last thing he expects to see in her wild violet eyes is the frightened innocence of a young girl. For her part, Lana never expects to feel anything but hate for the most feared demon hunter on Earth. 

Neither of them expected it to become something more.

Blood and Sin Playlist

Only a few more days until Blood and Sin (The Infernari #1) comes out! I can hardly wait! Until then, I thought I'd put up a quick post with the official Blood and Sin playlist! Music is a huge part of my writing, and the following songs really caught the mood of Blood and Sin and/or inspired me while writing it. I hope you enjoy!
