By Moonlight 1.5

Shay lept into the dark.

The pitch black that awaited her was blinding.  The swoosh of air jetting past her ears and the pressure against her cheeks were the only indicators that she was indeed falling.  

Fast and far.

Ethan’s tower had been much higher up than she had anticipated.  Ethaniel.  Not quite the cold-blooded monster she had envisioned him to be.  Pale, yes.  An uneasy coolness to his skin, absolutely.  But not a monster, this she knew for sure.  

The ground was much closer now, she could sense the sudden dread of its nearness.  Her stomach lurched at the inevitable end that was awaiting her less than four breaths from now.  If the oxygen had not already been sucked from her lungs the exact moment after she swung herself over Ethan’s balcony, she would have surely been screaming by now.

Three.  Her belly tightened.  Bracing for an impact she would never feel.  

Two.  Though she saw nothing through the cole blackness, Shalise felt her eyes close and tighten from the terror awaiting her.

One.  For some reason, her lips moved.  Prayer?  No, she knew nothing of it.  At least, not anymore.

Impact.

Her fall stopped so close to the ground that Shay felt stiff, dry blades of grass scratching at her forehead, cheeks, and bare stomach.

Was this what death was like?  An eternal sense of hovering within your final moments of life.

No.  She was alive.

The only reason why she knew this is because of the quick snatch of breath that flooded her chest as she was violently tugged backward and up into the air.

Something had caught her.  Something had saved her less than a moment away from certain demise.  Something that had grappled her tumbling body with such force that she could feel its claws still digging deep into the flesh of her mid-back.  

Wait.  Not claws.  The texture was too flesh-like.  Not warm, but not bone-chilling, as she imagined talons to be.

Fingers.  The nails were deadly sharp, enough to rip her skin.  Though she could not see the blood, she felt it crawling down the sides of her back.  

Up, up, up, her weakened body climbed.  It was like the entire scene was reversing itself.  The higher she was pulled, the less intense the darkness became.  Slowly, her eyes began to grab at points of reference. Once she spotted the gray slabs of stone that lined the walls of his fortress, a shudder racked through her, from shoulders to toes.  Fresh scratches opened across the flat of her stomach as she was dragged over the edge of the abrasive stone.

Finally, the fingers released their grip within the flesh of her back, and Shay was dropped into a crumpled pile at the center of the open balcony.

As Shay lay there, breathless and broken, she squeezed her eyes tight, hoping for a death that she had been wishing away only seconds before.  Finally, she opened them then released a weak, silent whimper.

Bare feet.  Muscled calves.  She dared not look up any further.  What was he?  Perhaps she was wrong.  Maybe he was a monster.  How else had he been able to save her?

“I can never let you go.”

Harsh. Raspy.  Booming.   Ethan’s voice.

He didn’t bother to force Shay up from her crumpled fetal position.

The feet moved away, with a regal stride.

She knew, he was right.  They were bound together, forever.

If he had a heartbeat, it was moving in sync with hers.  Like a stalking phantom.  She had sensed its presence within her chest as she tumbled down the side of the wall.

Wild.  Erratic.  Afraid.  For her.  For himself.

What had he done to her?  And why?

Out of the dark, into the light.  Shalise would never return to the life she had known.

Wherever she went, however far she fled, Ethaniel, her beloved, would always pursue and would always bring her home.

Tiffany – the Mouse of the house

My name is Tiffany Poole, and this is my story.

The world that I was born into was ruled by chaos and fear; yet, all my mother and father wanted was for their little girl to grow up on a peaceful patch of heaven on earth. Fires burned in distant cities that I was never supposed to see.  Wars raged in countries that were on the other side of a planet that was too big for me to ever explore.  But on our homestead in a rural stretch of what was once the state of Pennsylvania, there was only love and light to guide me.  My parents tried to protect me from all of the evil that was spilling out into every corner of the world.  They tried – and they failed.

My dad, Gabriel Poole, loved his wife and daughter more than he loved his own life. Unfortunately for him, there came a day when he had to honor that oath.  He and Mama went to their graves trying to protect me from scavengers – bands of mercenaries that roamed the lands looking to steal, to kill, and to ravage any decent remains of human society.  When the fight for our home and for our lives was finally over, I had nothing left but ruined memories of love and horrific nightmares of those I had lost so terribly.

From treasured jewel to slave girl, and now, secret warrior for a clan that was supposed to have been killed off decades ago.  But, despite the orders I was sent to carry out, I’m not here to fight the good fight.  I’m here for one purpose only – vengeance.

The Bond – Chapter 2.1

When he had made the perfect knot in the tie, Jake stared at his reflection.  So long ago but it seemed like only yesterday.  A small smile tugged the corners of his lips. He ran a hand through his wavy, cinnamon brown hair.  Today was going to be a big celebration; the biggest in his life, thus far.  He needed to look perfect.  No, better than perfect – flawless.

Who is Janay?

This title was supposed to be a quickie…but a few pages into drafting and I knew that this story wanted to blossom into sooo much more….57,481 words more!…So, who is Janay anyway?….I suppose in a way..kinda’ sorta’ but not really..she’s me.  Or, should I say, the me I wanted to be when I was scribbling this into e-ink.  Guys from the Midwest are sexy! Love those accents!

*smirks mischievously* 

Janay is a woman who is about to find out that sometimes taking a chance and side-stepping outside of the “norm” may be just what’s needed to help her to really start to LIVE life and not merely observe it from the perspective of others…

Hope you enjoy Janay and Jackson’s (somewhat erotic) love story…I did *winks*

New Sensations – Re-Released

SimoneSecondChancesCoverMiniGet hot and heavy in the Midwest all over again.

When a business trip sends quiet Janay Parker flying to the other side of the country, a chance meeting in a local hangout puts her in the sights of handsome and bold Jackson Bryant. Once the two lock eyes, their combined passion spins Janay to new heights of intimacy she never dared to dream of.

Now, a scorned friend and an estranged mother are all that stand in her way of true happiness. Can Janay find the strength within herself to turn the tables and embrace what was always meant to hers…love from an adoring man and a renewed spark to taste life…?

Excerpt 

I closed my eyes and sank my fingers through his loose curls, still tucked around the ears, and pulled Jackson in for a deep and combustible kiss.  My tongue wiggled against his as he willingly accepted my affection and timed his thrusts into my mouth to sync with mine.  I breathed his scent deep into my nostrils and allowed the spicy aroma to fill my lungs.

“I want to be with you, Jackson…only you.  You’re everything that I’ve ever wanted.  Don’t let go of me,” I pleaded while our lips dangled together.

“I won’t, baby, as long as I walk this earth, I promise we’ll be together.”

Our foreheads pressed and our hands melded.  I finally felt at peace, set free from the noise of the world I had managed to escape from.  I felt a strange tingling and then saw an image of my dad’s smiling face flash across my vision.  I knew that he and Jackson would have gotten along just fine.

“Stay with me tonight, Janay.  Come home with me and stay in my bed.”

“Yes,” the only answered that I ever wanted to give to Jackson from this day forth…
