Are you feeling warm yet?”
I watch his lips as he speaks
the words, husky and low. His lips are
full, yet manly and suddenly I ache to lean over and press mine to his, to
touch them in any way that I can.
But I don’t.
Because I’m not a girl who gets
used. Not anymore.
“No, not at all.”
But Dominic takes that as a
challenge. He’s not used to hearing the
word no and he’s not about to start now.
I see that in his dark eyes a scant moment before he dips his head and
consumes my mouth.
I say consume, instead of kiss,
because that’s what he does.
He consumes me.
His lips are fiery and hot and
he kisses me with a fierceness that touches a secret part of me; moist, hot,
firm, sexy. I want to inhale him, to
suck him down. I vaguely feel his hands
on my back, his warmth emanating through my clothes, his hardness pushing into
I’m breathless when he pulls
“What about now?”
For the life of me, I’m afraid
to answer that. Instead, I pull away,
just a bit, just enough that there is some space between us, but I can still
absorb his warmth. As my teeth chatter,
both from the cold and from the suddden absence of his lips, I answer.
He laughs, a husky, low, naughty sound.
“Oh, I’m sure of that.”
And just like that, I’m drawn
back in… in toward his sexy smile, his arrogant gaze and his knowing
smirk. He’s bad for me. Very bad for me. I’ve got to remember that.
will decimate you,
I tell myself.
But my problem is, every
time I look into his dark eyes and see the mysterious things that lurk there, I
forget that. I forget everything that
is supposed to matter.

Crimson Darkness Blurb:
London is in the grip of an unnatural darkness. Rose is in the grasp of an unrelenting power and Raven and Thistle, along with their supernatural allies, are battling to survive and find a way to restore their home city.
For the fey, the song remains the same. They must return the power to Faerie or die. Unfortunately for them, the task has been superseded by an even more important one – help save Earth or perish along with it!
For Rose, the stakes are even higher as she is forced to make a terrible deal that will damn her if she does and damn her if she doesn’t.
Now enemies must work together as allies if they are to save their worlds from an ancient threat…

Amos Cassidy – a team of two. Amos is a 29 year old Diva and Cassidy a 36 year old mum of three.
Aside from a passion for writing and a love of reading they also share an addiction to coffee, love anything Joss Whedon and are constantly playing tug of war over Jensen Ackles.
They have been writing together for four years and are currently working on the third book in their Crimson Series.
A soft knock at the door interrupted her thoughts. “What?” she called.
“It’s me. Gabriel. Can I come in?”
The door opened and Gabriel stepped into the room closing it softly behind him. Thistle was immediately on her feet glaring at him, hands on hips. “Let me guess, no one’s ever said no to you before have they?”
“I just wanted to make sure that you were okay.”
“Well, you’ve seen me. I’m okay. Now get out.” She pointed to the door.
Gabriel sighed. “You’re not okay, Thistle. You’ve just lost the two people closest to you.”
Thistle felt her temper flare. “So you’ve come to rub it in have you?”
Gabriel looked taken aback. He exhaled in exasperation and raked a hand through his hair. “Look, I’m not very good at this. I just wanted to say I’m sorry and…and I’m here if you need me. I am your superior and it’s my job to provide counsel in times like these.”
She couldn’t believe it. He was playing the superiority card again. After everything that had happened, that was happening; he couldn’t get off his high horse for one minute and show some humanity. Instead he wanted to counsel her!
“Get out.” Her voice was low, dangerous.
“Get OUT!” She flew at him, pushing him with all her might. “Get out get out get out!” she punched him in the chest, slapped at him, kicked him. “I don’t need you, I don’t fucking need anybody! I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m…” the tears came again then, hot and salty burning a trail down her face. Strong arms wrapped themselves around her. She resisted at first, tried to pull away but he was stronger and in that moment more determined. She was suddenly so tired. All the fight had drained out of her and she found herself pressed against his hard chest, his arms like bands of comforting steel holding her upright.
“It’s okay, I’m here. Let me be here,” he crooned soothingly, his lips close to her ear, face pressed to the side of her head. He was like a big muscular teddy bear, offering comfort. Her arms moved as if of their own accord until she was hugging him back, her hands pressed against his shoulder blades. She allowed the tears to flow, her heart to break.
After what seemed like an eternity, she slowly pulled back until she was staring at his shirt, stained with her tears.
A finger caressed her jaw line, stopped at her chin and tilted her face up until she was looking into warm amber eyes.
Gabriel’s expression was soft, unguarded. He dropped his chin so his forehead was pressed against hers. “Okay?” He whispered softly.
She wasn’t sure what made her do it. Maybe it was a vulnerability that a culmination of the lack of moonlight, the loss of her friends and the warmth of those honey eyes had wrought. Or maybe it was those perfectly formed luscious lips only an inch away from hers. Whatever the reason she pushed up on her toes and pressed her lips against his. It was meant as a gesture of thanks, at least that was what she told herself and she pulled away after a second. She studied him boldly, his lips were parted, his expression dazed. Shit, she’d probably scared the crap out of him.
“Are you?” His voice was husky, sexy.
Their eyes remained locked for the longest moment; a moment in which she allowed herself to feel every point of contact between their bodies. Her fingers against the hard ridges of his shoulder blades, her chest pressed against the muscled planes of his, the heat from his thighs seeping into hers.
“No,” she said softly.
The corners of his eyes crinkled in a smile and his lips descended to meet hers.
The earth shook and a siren ripped through the air.
They jumped apart.
“What the hell was that?” Thistle stood hand on heart.
Gabriel was already at the door. “The shield’s been breached!” he called over his shoulder as he disappeared out the door.

* This is a New Adult Contemporary Romance with Mature content that is not suitable for younger readers.Riviera Benson’s past has been nothing but horrific. It’s filled with secrets that she intends to keep tightly locked away…terrifying secrets that keep her awake at night…that prevent her from getting close to anyone…anyone that is, until her work as a muralist drives her into the arms of the hot and sexy Shan.
Benjamin Shandon, owner of Shandon Homes, works like a thousand demons are chasing him…because perhaps they are. His business has boomed, ever since the forest fire swept through the canyon and destroyed hundreds of million dollar homes. He demands excellence in everything…from his employees to his women. He slows down for nothing, keeping a schedule that no sane person would want. But Riviera interrupts everything, twisting his guts inside out, and wedging her way into his heart, destroying a promise he made to himself.
Will they let their pasts control their future, or will they decide to let go and allow their hearts to discover each other’s?

realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn’t do something soon, it
would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming
of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her
fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily,
the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodge ball pro and had über
quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling
a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side
street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what laptop out
the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell
phone, called her boss and quit her job. Grinning, she made another call
to her hubs and told him of her new adventure (after making sure his heart was
beating properly again).
Her books include the following: Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge and Kissing
Fire (The Edge Series); The Guardians of Vesturon series (Survival,
Resurrection, Determinant, reEmergent and Beginnings); Dark Waltz and
